Tolbert: We don't care if this is Manning's last game

Panthers fullback Mike Tolbertdoesn't care if you don't like Carolina's touchdown celebrations, and he isn't about to bow down to Broncos passer Peyton Manning, either.

"We don't really care if this is his last game," Tolbert said of Manning's appearance in Super Bowl 50, per The Charlotte Observer. "He's played what -- 18, 19 years? He's had enough, you know what I'm saying? It's our turn."

Panthers safety Tre Boston agrees, saying he wouldn't feel the least bit bad about picking off Manning two Sundays from now.

"So if a man has the last piece of pizza in the world, are you going to take that last piece?" Boston asked. "One of y'all got to live! One of us has to win, and I'm not trying to lose. It's you and that one man. You gonna live or not? I'm trying to win. I don't care who you are."

Fans can expect plenty of sentimental gushing over Manning's Hall of Fame-worthy career prior to Super Bowl 50, but not from Carolina's locker room. The Panthers are heading to the Bay Area for a very different reason.
