Panthers player on Peyton Manning: 'He's had enough ... it's our turn'
Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert says Peyton Manning has 'had enough' and 'it's our turn.'
The Panthers have very little emotional concerns about the Broncos quarterback, however. Carolina fullback Mike Tolbert even thinks Manning's "had enough" when it comes to success in the NFL and that it's the Panthers turn for some love.
“We don’t really care if this is his last game,” Tolbert told Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer. “He’s played what -- 18, 19 years? He’s had enough, you know what I’m saying? It’s our turn."
The always-animated Tre Boston had no interest in giving Manning the metaphorical final piece of pizza in the world either.
“So if a man has the last piece of pizza in the world, are you going to take that last piece?” Boston asked. “One of y’all got to live! One of us has to win, and I’m not trying to lose. It’s you and that one man. You gonna live or not? I’m trying to win. I don’t care who you are."
In Boston's defense, who would give up the last piece of pizza in the world? Just so someone else can survive. (The only way you give that up is if it's Chicago "pizza" and you don't have a set of silverware.)
Long story short is the Panthers aren't going to Santa Clara in order to celebrate the end of Peyton Manning's illustrious run in the NFL. They're going to win a Super Bowl.
As for Manning, he would wholeheartedly disagree he's had "enough" (only one Super Bowl win isn't much compared to his talents) but he certainly wouldn't begrudge the Panthers for wanting to win the game. Few people know how difficult it is to take home the Lombardi Trophy quite like Peyton.
