It’s good to be Peyton Manning. The Denver Broncos quarterback is a record five-time league MVP, currently the most marketable player in the NFL, loving father to twins, Marshall and Mosley, and he’s headed to the Super Bowl for the fourth time.

Whether he’s throwing for a touchdown or singing the Nationwide jingle in his characteristic New Orleans drawl, we’re always happy to catch Manning on our TV screens.

And with rumors flying that this might be his last game, now is a better time than ever to list our five reasons why Manning is football's sweetheart.
