Peyton Manning strode up to the podium, with a folder containing his retirement speech. If he wanted this to be like any other corporate speech he has given — and he’s given a ton— there was no chance. As prepared as Manning is for everything, there’s no way to script how you’ll feel walking away from a game you’ve given your life to.

Manning needed a few seconds before he even started his speech to compose himself.

With family, friends and former teammates looking on in the Denver Broncos meeting room, Manning had a news conference to officially announce his retirement after 18 NFL seasons with the Broncos and Indianapolis Colts. His voice was shaking most of the time as he thanked his hometown of New Orleans, the University of Tennessee, the Colts and Broncos, his old teammates and coaches, and his family. He thanked everyone, really.

After beating Cincinnati in the playoffs, the Steelers will remain the king of the hill in the AFC North, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

Paolantonio, ESPN’s longtime NFL reporter, thinks Pittsburgh will win a record seventh North championship after winning a record 14 AFC Central titles between 1972 and 2001. The Steelers won the last Central championship in 2001 and the first North title in 2002.

“I think the Steelers will win the division,” Paolantonio told Steelers.com. “(Joe) Flacco is coming back from an injury. The Browns, who knows what is going on with them. The Bengals will be tough, but I always like the Steelers.”

Aside from Pittsburgh’s personal, which includes the best offense in football, Paolantonio pointed to the organization’s consistency and tradition of excellence as another reason for why he thinks the Steelers will reclaim the AFC North championship.

After seeing his integrity publicly challenged by Adam Jones, Antonio Brown is not ready to forgive Jones or his teammate, Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict.

Brown, who was left concussed on a late hit by Burfict near the end of the Steelers’ wild card victory over Cincinnati, was accused of faking the injury by Bengals’ cornerback Adam Jones, who later offered a public apology when the injury kept Brown out of Pittsburgh’s divisional playoff loss to the Broncos. Despite Jones’ apology, the damage has apparently been done in the mind of Brown, who isn’t ready to forgive Jones or Burfict.

“The guy texted me,” Brown said. “No reply. I don’t even know why people give him the platform. Ridiculous.”

The Steelers Blitzburgh era will now have a representative in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In those three seasons, Greene recorded 35.5 sacks, was named to two Pro Bowls, and was an All-Pro in 1994, when Pittsburgh’s Blitzburgh defense spearheaded the Steelers to their first AFC Championship Game in a decade.
