Broncos’ Manning looks for beer after big win

13th January, 2014 by Rupert Millar

Veteran quarterback Peyton Manning was more concerned about getting hold of a cold beer than considering his playing career after a crucial win on Sunday night.

The former Indianapolis Colts quarterback is awaiting a scan on an old neck injury which could see him bow out of the NFL if he is considered still at an elevated risk of further injury after the fusion surgery he had in 2011.

When asked by The Boston Globe whether the thought troubled him he replied: “What’s weighing on my mind is how soon I can get a Bud Light in my mouth. That’s priority number one.”

Manning picked up a neck injury in 2010 while playing for the Colts and his career looked on the line but he battled back and is now on the brink of taking the Broncos to this year’s Super Bowl in his first season with the team.

However, although Manning will likely go down as an all-time legend in the NFL he has only managed to win one Super Bowl (with the Colts in 2007).

This coming weekend Manning and the Broncos will play the New England Patriots in a match which decides the AFC champion and that conference’s Super Bowl contender.

Although he likely picked Bud Light as the brand is a major sponsor of the NFL, win or lose next Sunday, hopefully Manning will have more time in Denver to explore that city’s excellent craft beer scene for the next time he needs a cold one.
