The Associated Press announces that John Albert Elway, the son of John Elway has just been sentenced to one year of probation and the obligation to attend counseling sessions on domestic violence.
The incident dates back to May, when John Albert dragged his girlfriend out of the car by the hair after an argument. He then allegedly pushed her to the ground when she tried to get back into the car. John Albert had fled the scene before being arrested at his father’s house.
Unlike Ray Rice’s wife, the lady in question did not stay with John Albert. The latter no longer even has the right to approach him.
Denver Broncos president and former quarterback John Elway was full of praise for his team winning Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday night in Santa Clara , in California.
Incidentally, Elway mentioned that the defensive squad led by coordinator Wade Phillips was “the best in history.”
“The players got stronger as the playoffs went on,” he told NFL.com. I can’t be more proud of them and I’m really happy because they are the best I’ve seen.”
For his part, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. highlighted his team’s recent run to win the title.
“We overcame the most difficult obstacles this season: Tom Brady twice, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton, he added to the magazine “Sports Illustrated”. How can you not say it’s one of the best defenses of all time?
The Unexpected Hero
For his part, linebacker Von Miller eclipsed quarterback Peyton Manning during the NFL Finals thanks in particular to his two forced fumbles. The MVP of the clash, however, has come a long way, he who was suspended for drug use and who suffered a torn ligament in his knee in 2013.
“He wins football games for us,” Elway said of him. You never know what can happen, but you don’t want him to leave Denver. We will do everything to give him a new contract and make it work.
As for the athlete concerned, he is not yet thinking about his next contract negotiation.
“The MVP award is special, but the Super Bowl ring is something I will carry with me forever,” Miller said. I can be with my brothers [his teammates] for eternity! I can be around these guys for the next 100 years and that’s wonderful.”
As for Manning, who had just 141 passing yards on Sunday, the championship won in Santa Clara could mark the end of a stellar career.
“I think it’s over for him in Denver. In fact, it possibly is, regardless of location. I don’t know his intentions, but that’s what I believe,” Broncos quarterback father Archie told the NFL Network.
Through the front door. A month after his Super Bowl victory against the Carolina Panthers (24-10), Peyton Manning has therefore decided to end his career, after 18 seasons in the NFL. This decision, widely anticipated, will not be formalized until a press conference on Monday, but the reactions are already raining.
“When you look at all that Peyton has accomplished, as a player and as a person, it’s easy to see that we were very lucky to have him on our team,” said John Elway, general manager of the Denver Broncos. Peyton has been everything we expected of him and more, not only for our team but also for our city.”
“You have changed our sport”
Winner of two Super Bowls (the first in 2006 with the Indianapolis Colts) and record holder for the number of touchdown passes (539) and yards gained by passes (71,940), the quarterback leaves an indelible mark behind him. in the history of US football. The big boss of the NFL, Roger Goodell, thus hailed “the extraordinary career achieved thanks to his talent, his incredible work ethic and his permanent desire to be the best”.
As for Tom Brady, the other star quarterback of the League, he also split a beautiful tribute on Facebook: “You have changed our sport and pushed everyone around you to be better, it was a honor”.
In this concert of praise, and at the time of looking back on his immense career, “the Sheriff” may still regret having seen his image somewhat tarnished by recent doping accusations. But Manning will surely console himself with the 270 million dollars (246 million euros) he has accumulated.
