Peyton Manning Loses Press Conference
- Updated: April 16, 2014
Peyton Manning spoke to the media for the first time Wednesday since he and his teammates were humiliated in the 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The game wasn’t as close as the 43-8 score might indicate.
Speaking to the media Manning issued the typical platitudes that included saying that 2013 was a good season in a lot of ways, the season didn’t end like they wanted it to, he and his teammates have to build on what they did and do better with the newer players that management has acquired.
Manning likes what the Broncos organization has done in the offseason in acquiring three defensive players who could potentially start. Of course, have you ever heard a QB stand up and say that he doesn’t like what his team did in the off-season? If you have, there was probably a solar eclipse and Bill Clinton was celibate for a year.
Peyton lost the Super Bowl and lost the press conference Wednesday. That makes it two in a row. Hey Peyton, can’t you at least give us something we didn’t already know? Like after looking at film and thinking about it for a few months why you stunk so bad against the Seahawks?
What Manning needs more than anything is a couple new offensive linemen and to be given hypnosis or at least something that makes those happy feet of his unhappy. Great QB, but the big game and Peyton Manning are not two comfortable bedfellows. It started in college when Manning left Tennessee and Tee Martin took over the QB job the next season and led the Vols to the national championship.
Manning said other things but nothing significant. If you have heard his press conferences over the years, you don’t need to seek out the transcript to this latest one. When you have been in the league as long as Manning, the only talking that counts is the big games. Unfortunately, Manning hasn’t had much to say in many of those.
