Veteran Peyton Manning was in tears. The ace quarterback almost cried while addressing his Denver Broncos’ teammates in the eve of the Super Bowl 50. DeMarcus Ware was with him. Emotions also choked Ware.
Manning hasn’t revealed whether he would retire after the game. But the 39-year-old sounded overly emotional, as team president Joe Ellis told ESPN‘s Sal Paolantonio.
“Both were very emotional and near tears,” Ellis said. “Peyton told a few jokes to lighten the mood, but then he got very emotional [when talking about what the game meant to him]. And so did DeMarcus. The room was silent. It was a very emotional gathering.” The Denver president added, according to the Real GM.
Head coach Kubiak displayed a blueprint of how the Broncos could overcome the challenge of the Panthers in all three sessions of the game, then passed the lectern to Manning first. It was handed over to DeMarcus Ware.
