Peyton Manning will announce the end of an 18-year NFL career on Monday, according to two separate reports on Sunday morning.

If this is indeed the end, Manning retires with....

  • Two Super Bowl victories
  • Four AFC championships
  • Twelve division championships
  • 186 victories
  • Five NFL MVP awards
  • 14 Pro Bowl selections
  • Seven First Team All-Pro honors
  • Two AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year awards
  • One AP NFL Comeback Player of the Year award
  • Four NFL passing touchdowns crowns
  • Three NFL passing yards titles
  • A spot on the NFL's All-Decades Team
  • 9,380 pass attempts
  • 6,125 completions
  • 71,940 passing yards
  • 539 passing touchdowns

Save for his missed season in 2011, Manning never missed a start until the 2015 season.

The man has been an institution unto himself for two decades straight.

As I've said before, other players possessed more raw, overwhelming talent, but no player, no quarterback accomplished more than Manning.
