This is awesome. I’ve long been surprised at the pass Peyton Manning gets from the media when he screams at his players. He does it constantly, in virtually every game I’ve seen him play. (I’ve noted this on the site before. In mid-December, ESPN rated Manning the #2 QB in the game and Favre the #3 QB in the game, despite Favre’s better numbers through that point in the season. After pointing this out in this post, I wrote: “Apparently the judges gave bonus points for arm-flailing before the snap and whining after incompletions, so Manning got the nod.” Earlier that month we included Manning on a short list of QBs who blame their teammates when things go wrong.)
There is no better example of this than this video clip from YouTube (H/T, profootballtalk.com). Enjoy.
