Peyton Manning’s awesome Pro Football Hall of Fame induction speech has fans thinking of a future job for the legendary quarterback.
The former Colts and Broncos quarterback had a great message during his speech.
“As members of this honored class, we have a responsibility to make our game stronger from the core playground to the most celebrated stadiums,” Manning said. “During the past few years, the game of football has been challenged by an explosion of sports and entertainment options, safety concerns, erupting social justice issues and a world-wide pandemic. Displaced fans has taken on an entirely new meaning as our stadiums have been shut down and fans shut out. We certainly shouldn’t walk away now. When we leave this stage tonight, it is no longer about us. It is about cultivating the game that has given so much to us. It’s about nurturing football to live and thrive another day, another year, another decade, another generation. It’s about guaranteeing that kids everywhere can learn, bond, grow and have fun with every flag pulled, every tackle made, every pass thrown, every run, block, sack and touchdown scored.”
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter had a telling thought.
“Peyton Manning sounded like he can one day be the NFL Commissioner,” he tweeted.

NFL fans seem to agree.
“Pure class and the most trendsetting QB I have ever watched,” one fan wrote. “I would vote for him as POTUS.”
“He’d be tremendous – and hi Adam,” Amy Trask wrote.
Of course, others question if Manning would want the job.
“Why would he want that job he’s already super wealthy. He’s going to make $20m just taking about football for 3 hours for 17 weeks,” one fan wrote.
Fair point, but most of the football world would certainly love to see it.
