Peyton Manning gives Belichickian response to 'last rodeo' questions
Peyton Manning's response to his "last rodeo" comments were awesome.
"I don't know if it's been confirmed," Manning said before questioning the issue of microphones being everywhere.
"What happened to private conversations on the 50-yard line? I guess they just don't exist anymore. No confirmation on that whatsoever."
Then in typical Manning fashion, the Broncos quarterback added a little bit of deadpan, summonining his inner Belichick for a quip.
"We are on to ... Carolina," Manning said. "We're onto Carolina."
This is why Manning's the best. He lamented the issues surrounding football while also providing a pithy response that morphed into a solid line quoting the very guy he was talking to.
He also could've said, "Hey guys, I'm old as hell, so really this might be it for me. If I win, well, walking off with a title would be pretty awesome."
But vague works, especially when everyone else is on the denial.
Gary Kubiak had nothing to say about Manning's comments to Belichick either ... assuming they even happened.
Remember when it comes time for the Super Bowl to kick off: We're watching what might be the final game of one of the all-time great quarterbacks. Soak it in.
