Will Manning Ever Win It All?

Allen Barra asks if Payton Manning might one day end his career as the best quarterback never to win the Super Bowl. Manning's statistics place him among the sport's best at that position, but he has never managed to reach the Super Bowl.

While Barra argues that the failure may have more to do with the Colts' defense than with anything Manning has done, he also points out that Manning's window of opportunity may be closing if he doesn't win this year. The salary cap and aging stars (Marvin Harrison is 34, which is old for a wide receiver), as well as the age of Manning (31, which probably puts him now at his peak), may conspire to limit future opportunities.
