Attention sports fans which athletes have stayed around too long??

As I watch Peyton Manning throw each pass I see less and less speed and arm strength. Yes he is a great quarterback, one of the best, but not now! Unfortunately, those days are past. Next stop is the Hall of Fame for sure. I just wish he would find a way to realize he needs to walk away.

Many athletes can’t, and who knows, if I were an athlete perhaps my competitive juices would be burning and I wouldn’t walk away until I had too.

I do wonder if the last few years of a superstar’s career – with less production – does it hurt their legacy?

There have been plenty of stars that have stayed too long. Some may say that Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, and Brett Favre would make such a list.

What do you say?

  • Is it time for Peyton to ride off into the sunset?
  • What athletes have stayed around too long?
  • If an athlete stays too long what does it do to their legacy?

I look forward to reading your comments.
