If there is anybody who could come back from all of that and still look good, it's Peyton Manning. It's definitely not an easy task, but if I were gonna bet money on any one player to bounce right back it would be him. Remember, most of Manning's success can really be attributed to his football IQ and work ethic. So, even if he is only 80% physically, he's still going to be just as sharp as he ever was mentally, and nobody is better at reading defenses on the line of scrimmage than Manning.
