Peyton Manning in new 2013 Buick Verano TV commercial

Peyton Manning almost gets “blindsided” driving Buick Verano [video]

Peyton Manning is one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL and needs to be protected from being blindsided. Does the 2013 Buick Verano really keep him safe?

The star quarterback of the Denver Broncos came back from what should have been a career-ending neck injury. But after four neck surgeries and intensive rehab, Peyton Manning came very close to going to the Super Bowl last year. It was an incredible comeback story for the future Hall of Fame quarterback. With a 20 million a year salary and his NFL fame, why does Peyton Manning hang out with the guys at Buick when he could be endorsing Mercedes-Benz or Ferrari for that matter?

Because it’s who Peyton Manning is. He's not a playboy like the quarterback of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady. Peyton Manning is a down-to-earth guy who has a family and chose to play in Denver because its a great place to raise his family. While other NFL quarterbacks are jet-setting around the globe with supermodels, Manning is at home playing with his kids. This is just the kind of car that Manning would endorse because it reflects who he is. You have to respect him for the kind of person he is as he could be driving the most expensive luxury car on the planet.

Manning stars in “Blindsided”

Last year, we saw Peyton Manning in his Buick Verano giving audibles to the luxury car from GM and asking it to give directions in a construction zone. This season, he returns in a Buick commercial callled “Blindsided” touting the 2013 Verano’s safety features. Peyton Manning returns to TV screens across the country during this weekend’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four.
