You won't escape it - especially now.
So, let's get it out of the way right now with NBC's Ross Tucker.
What's Manning's legacy right now after the Super Bowl disaster?
"I thought last night was a big swing game, it really was," Tucker said. "I thought if he won that one and became the first quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams, join select company of winning multiple Super Bowls, then I thought he had a very compelling argument to be the best quarterback of All-Time. Certainly in the top three with guys like Tom Brady and Joe Montana if we're talking about the modern era."
"Losing that game and losing the way that he did makes me feel like it's a much, much tougher argument to make."
Tucker still thinks Manning is among the all-time greats, but he won't be able to take the title for himself.
