“Honestly, in ’08, when I had that knee injury, that really makes you appreciate what you’re doing on a daily basis. Because there was a year that I missed, and I was like, ‘Damn, I wish I was out there practicing every day.’ To not have that opportunity was very frustrating. I love the game.”
The two-time Super Bowl MVP said that the neck injury that sidelined Manning last year also hit home as a reminder of football mortality.
“Things always change quickly,” he said. “We’re certainly not entitled to anything in this league. And it’s always going to move on without us. That’s why you have to work hard at it. That’s why you’ve got to earn it, why you’ve got to appreciate it. And there’s some luck that plays into it.”
You never know when your magic ride will come to an end. Enjoy every moment!!!
