Peyton Manning is once again a Super Bowl Champion as his Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 by a score of 24-10. For Manning it’s his second Super Bowl win against a pair of Super Bowl losses. He went 1-1 in title games with the Indianapolis Colts and he is now also 1-1 with the Denver Broncos, making him the first starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams.
There is a lot of speculation that Super Bowl 50 was his final NFL game and there is no doubt that when he does hang up his cleats for good, he will be a no doubt first ballot Hall of Fame inductee. But his glorious career hasn’t always been roses. He IS human after all. There have been plenty of thorns and bumps in the road along the way. Here we will take a look at the top 10 worst moments of his otherwise tremendous career.

1 Manning accused of HGH use in December of 2015
In late 2015 a documentary that was aired by Al Jazeera after an undercover probe, claimed that Manning used HGH. The report stemmed from information they said that they had received about an Indiana based anti aging clinic. The allegations from their top source have been recanted by him and Manning responded by saying he was "angry, furious, and disgusted is really how I feel, sickened by it. It stings me, whoever this guy is, to insinuate that I cut corners, I broke NFL rules in order to get healthy. It's a joke. It's a freaking joke." At this point it appears the story isn’t true and Manning is telling the truth. And if he is, it’s just sad that a great career will always be marred by the fact of the allegations. Because even though they appear to be false, people will always remember them and there will always be a question in the back of society’s mind of if he cheated or not.
