Peyton Manning passes his physical, is cleared to play

Such that there was a lot of doubt, that doubt has been removed.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning passed his physical Monday morning, and is cleared to continue playing football.

This one was a bit of a formality, as he had already passed an exit physical with the Broncos after the Super Bowl, and has given no indications he’s having any problems after multiple neck surgeries.

Having a record-breaking season put most of those concerns to rest anyway, but now the doctors have concurred, and Manning is free to try to get over the hump (and over .500 in the postseason, as he’s 11-12) again next year.

    Top 5 QBs in Professional Football – Griffin the 3rd, Rodgers, Stafford, Dalton and Brees. In that order.

    Are you high Andy Dalton?!?!? Maybe if turnovers counted as touchdowns!!

  3. xgarcia22 says: Mar 3, 2014 12:16 PM

    Retire; you will never win another Super Bowl. Ever.

    That is great news. However we already knew that he were going to pass that physical. Now, on to the next..LETS GO DENVER BRONCOS!

    He still won’t get by the NFC team “if” he makes it back to the SB. Seattle, Frisco, New Orleans, Carolina, Packers are all better teams.

    And just how much money will Peyton make this year for another one and done?

  7. denver1983 says: Mar 3, 2014 12:21 PM

    Manning is the G.O.A.T

  8. scw1993 says: Mar 3, 2014 12:23 PM

    He’s free to come back and pad his personal stats yet again, the heck with the rest of the team.

  9. bronconation82 says: Mar 3, 2014 12:31 PM

    What were you smoking when you made that list leaving of manning and brady is crazy!

  10. jjackwagon says: Mar 3, 2014 12:35 PM

    Bad news for the Broncos regular season opponents. Good news for the Broncos play off opponents.

    Just go away already…you will never lead the Donkeys to another SuperBowl, let alone win one.

    Hey Peyton….just in case you forgot:

    2nd only to Joe Montana.

  14. ravenswhat says: Mar 3, 2014 12:45 PM

    Guys like Peyton are a different breed. Most guys would walk away from the game given how much $ he has and his status as one of the best ever. But he just wants to win another ring. And I respect that. A lot.

    HGH yah Buddy

    So much irony … Jim Harbaugh is the reason Peyton hasn’t already gotten his 2nd ring. When the 49ers pursued Peyton in free agency, that team was primed for an NFL Championship. Harbaugh’s vitriolic nature was obviously the detriment there. Otherwise, Peyton coasts to the Super Bowl two years ago and again this past year.

  17. jersey73 says: Mar 3, 2014 12:58 PM

    The Peyton haters are out in full force again. Pathetic.

  18. mickcollins44 says: Mar 3, 2014 1:00 PM

    If the Bears had Tommie Harris available, he’d have lost that Super Bowl. Harris owned Saturday.

  19. chargersdiehard says: Mar 3, 2014 1:01 PM

    Dwight Freeney will have his chance!

  20. chargersdiehard says: Mar 3, 2014 1:02 PM

    Brett Farve 2.0

    Bob III is not a good QB. Sorry, but facts is facts. I don’t care if he can run the 40 in 2.5 seconds, he makes stupid decisions with the ball, and gets canned 10 times every game. Combine that with a skinny build and he will be lucky if he survives to age 30. Seriously, Terrance Knighton practically drove his sternum through his backbone last year on one hit.

    He reminds me of that chick who plays for that semi pro league. She got rag-dolled a couple times and tossed around like a chew toy and then gets up and says “that all you got.”

    Sorry, but the Rocky Balboa thing only works in the movies. In the real world, you end up with busted ribs and a punctured lung (see Drew Bledsoe).

    Besides, he is way over confident. Andrew Luck is the best QB in the league at this point, bar none. There isn’t a single GM who wouldn’t trade his QB for Luck. Period.

    The GOAT has won 1 Super Bowl and has choked consistently in the playoffs.

    Got it. SMH.

  23. jimjets says: Mar 3, 2014 1:26 PM

    exactly Joetoronto….one more year of stats geeks professing his greatness, one more year of him blowing it in the clutch

  24. floratiotime says: Mar 3, 2014 1:31 PM

    He choked a little, but that’s just a winter thing.

  25. raiderufan says: Mar 3, 2014 1:37 PM

    This is great news….they can pile up regular season victories and get another year towards mediocrity. Elway has built absolutley nothing and keeps letting pieces leave due to the false sense of security his almost 40 y/o OC/QB gives him.

  26. surfinbird1 says: Mar 3, 2014 1:40 PM

    Why take a chance. He should just retire and rent his forehead out to show movies on.

  27. tennesseeoilers says: Mar 3, 2014 1:45 PM

    Here’s a question, who would you have rather had in the postseason–Peyton Manning or Brett Farve?

    Gives you perspective, doesn’t it? Whereas the vast majority of Peyton’s playoff losses were TEAM losses, in Farve’s case, he truly choked game after game after game in the clutch. His one Super Bowl win? Came via a kick returner who was named the game’s MVP. Seriously, how many titles would Peyton have if he’d been the Packers’ QB instead?

  28. beardinals says: Mar 3, 2014 1:52 PM

    Maybe he’ll do the smart thing and retire after he looks at the schedule and sees that he’s playing the NFC West next year.

  29. marima07 says: Mar 3, 2014 1:59 PM

    Well… there goes that excuse.

  30. distracted9 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:42 PM

    Probably just retire due to level of competition next year and go back to covering up sexual assault charges.. How ppl say he’s a great guy is beyond me.. have you not read him and Papa Bears book? “I rubbed my testicles on that girls face because she had a filthy mouth” _Peyton Manning.. or ” Oh she wanted it” speaking of the rape charge in New Orleans after that Super Bowl pick six lol.. what a douche. 3 charges and 3 paid off women. Classy

    Chris Mortensen, say what you will about him, is very plugged in to the Manning family through their agent Condon, etc and consequently never has a critical word to say about them. Even he admitted on tv not long ago that PM picked Denver because unlike the other teams who wanted him, they did not insist he learn their offense, they said he could run what he wanted offense wise. So when PM did have a chance to get away from the asinine way Polian builds teams (too top heavy), instead of his selecting the best team with the best HC out of all the ones that wanted him (which would have been SF or Seattle which he eschewed when they showed up to woo him) he picked the easiest team for him to play on. So much for the whole “Poor Peyton, the Colts never got him a defense” lament. He had a chance to play on both teams that had two of the better young defenses in the NFL and he chose the team with better offensive weapons that would let him do his own thing. While I have 0 problem with his doing that, I wish people would stop feeling sorry for him because of the team he’s on. He and only he chose it. He either wanted personal glory and the most salary over a better chance at a ring, or he thinks that his passing is more important to winning rings than is having a great defense. So he made his own bed. Stop crying for him.

    What a waste of money……he didn’t get hurt and he played just this winter so??… me the doctor, give me the $4k for the two hour appt….he’s playing

  33. vailskier99 says: Mar 4, 2014 12:06 PM

    CLK i a fool. Kaepernick is much better player than Peyton. In the SB, he was exposed as a Fraud. The reason his stats looked good was because his teams (Broncos and Colts) always played against mediocre teams. When he encountered a real D like the Hawks, he looked like a rookie. Russell Wilson, a 2nd year QB, outplayed Peyton.
