NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Peyton Manning is not interested in talking about where his career stands in football history.

Not right now, anyway. Not when he’s still playing. And certainly not less than a week from playing in the Super Bowl for the Denver Broncos.

As collected and measured as he is while standing in a pocket, Manning coasted through the circus that is Media Day, opining on his family’s favorite beer, politely evading silly questions about reality TV – and avoiding any wild pronouncements.

The word “legacy” popped up repeatedly as the 37-year-old Manning, a four-time NFL MVP who broke records by throwing for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards this season, sat through his hour-long session Tuesday.

Not surprisingly, Manning declined to take the bait.
