A few weeks ago, I watched Peyton Manning tie and break Brett
Favre's record for the most touchdown passes in the National Football
League. Three years ago, it was doubtful that Manning would ever
play again. It was only through courage, tenacity, and definite
purpose that Peyton was able to accomplish such an awesome feat.
From Surgery To Success
Peyton had surgery on a neck injury that he sustained, and his
NFL future was touch and go. Thanks to his burning desire and love
for the game, after being released by the Indianapolis Colts, Denver
Bronco fans saw Peyton take the Broncos to the Super Bowl last year.
While they did not win, just getting there was a major accomplishment.

and yet today, he is back to the Peyton that football fans all know
Super Bowl Here He Comes
Peyton's love for the game and his leadership skills just might
take Denver back to the Super Bowl this year. Not only does he inspire
himself, but he also inspires those around him to be the best that

in life for the rest of your life.
