Elway: Manning not ready to ride into retirement

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- John Elway doesn't see Peyton Manning riding off into that orange Rocky Mountain sunset the way Elway did 15 years ago if the Denver Broncos quarterback caps his record-setting season with a second Super Bowl ring.

Elway's body was breaking down, having been sacked 516 times -- 244 more than Manning has been in about the same number of games.

Manning has given no indication that he's anywhere near calling it quits at age 37, although he has dropped phrases lately like "light at the end of the tunnel" when talking about his career.

Elway takes that to mean Manning knows that whenever he does walk away, these are the days he'll look back on.

Manning is preparing to lead the Broncos against the New England Patriots Sunday in the AFC championship.
