Reggie Wayne explains meaning of 'Omaha,' reveals Peyton's secret
Reggie Wayne is revealing Peyton Manning's secrets
One of the greatest mysteries in the history of football revolves around Peyton Manning's favorite word, "Omaha."
Why does he say it? Is it an audible? Is it a check-down? Does he like the city? Does billionaire and Omaha-native Warren Buffett give him $5,000 every time he says it on national television? Is it Peyton's way of saying that he's going to move there after he retires?
Only people who have actually played with Manning know the real answer to the "Omaha" riddle and lucky for us, one of his ex-teammates went on NFL Network on Sunday to spill the beans on what "Omaha" actually means.
Former Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, who caught passes from Manning for 10 years in Indy, explained that the meaning of "Omaha" is actually pretty simple.
"Omaha means, he's going the other way," Wayne said. "If it's a run to the right -- if it's dive right, 'Omaha' is gonna be dive left."
However, Wayne did point out that the Patriots probably shouldn't develop a defensive game plan around his "Omaha" revelation.
"'Omaha's not going to be the same thing [vs. New England]," Wayne said.
What will Omaha mean on Sunday? How many times will Manning say it?
