Emotional Peyton retires

i

“In my very first NFL game, I completed my first pass to Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk. I threw a touchdown in that same game to Marvin Harrison, who would be inducted into the Hall of Fame this August. The quarterback for our opponent, the Miami Dolphins, was, after my dad, my favorite player — Hall of Famer Dan Marino, who on the first third down of the game completed a 25-yard skinny post. And it was the damndest throw I’d ever seen. Later, I completed a pass to tight end Marcus Pollard down the middle and somebody hit me really hard and after I got up I told myself, ‘I know I can play in this league.”

Tom Brady praises Peyton: ‘Sucks’ he’s retiring

When an archrival hangs it up, you’d think the other guy in the equation would celebrate.

The Broncos ended up with the loose ball, which was almost a miracle because it looked like Newton was in the perfect spot to recover it. Instead of going after the ball though, Newton appeared to avoid DeMarcus Ware.

The word “entertainment” wasn’t used there but, again, football is entertainment. It’s supposed to be enjoyed by the people watching it and the people playing it. Cam’s dancing results in both (unless you’re part of the opposing defense or fan base), and it’s just asinine to complain about his behavior after the Panthers punch one in.
