"It kind of reminds me of watching Kobe Bryant, right?" Marshall said of Manning, via ESPN.com. "These last couple of years you've seen the guy really hit a wall. These are legends, living legends, and all of a sudden, they can't do it anymore physically."
I refuse to dive deep here. Comparing Bryant and Manning's careers -- whether it's records or playoff success or longevity -- does no one any favors. But on a base level the assessment works. Both are unquestionable all-time greats who have struggled the past several seasons with injuries that escalated a declining skill set.
