3. Peyton Manning
Peyton Manning is as good as an NFL quarterback can get; all the physical tools, a born leader, mastery of the mental game, passion to play and excel, a tireless worker, and relentless competitor. Manning translated those positive qualities into a career that places him among the elite of the elite.
Peyton’s career stats say it all, highlighted by throwing for nearly 72,000 yards (that’s almost 41 miles of completed passes), and an astonishing 539 touchdowns. Manning played in four Super Bowls, winning two of them. Peyton is the best passer from an incredible football family that features father Archie, who mostly overachieved for a terrible New Orleans team in the 1970’s, and brother Eli, who was a very serious contender to make this list.
