Last Updated Feb 7, 2016 11:14 PM EST SAN FRANCISCO -- - If this was the final game of his magnificent career, what a Super way to go out for Peyton Manning.He can thank Von Miller and the Broncos' swarming, big-play defense for his second NFL championship.Adding that ring to his five MVP awards, Manning certainly can be satisfied and comfortable in retirement should Sunday's 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers be his finale.

It seems Manning no longer considered himself an NFL player. His wife told reporters that she wanted him to retire. Receiver Demaryius Thomas said, “I can play catch with him anytime I want to. But I don’t know if I would catch another NFL … [Read more...] about What’s next for Manning after grabbing elusive second ring?

This week's guest is Minneapolis-based publicist and writer Maggie LaMaack, who says this is the first season she has watched pro football (so far she is "not impressed").
