Peyton Manning carving new path to greatness

(Continued)

If anyone is up to the challenge, it would be Manning. He’s not short on talent or belief. Upon leaving the Colts, his former coach Tony Dungy said the biggest challenge Manning would face is “managing expectations.” There are his expectations and those of others.

Manning’s once again proven that he can play remarkable football. In weeks to come, he’ll have to show his harshest skeptics, his staunchest supporters and most importantly himself if he can lead the Broncos through a playoff maize that promises unseen twists and turns.

Whether he succeeds or fails is a headline that waits to be written.
