this was my observation & comment , see comment # 4 above and my blue game observation below
Any old MVP candidate can pass for three touchdowns in a 31-23 victory against Tampa Bay. On this particular Sunday, however, Manning told 76,432 Broncomaniacs to sit down and shut up.
And they liked it.
"I'm all for excitement, but in a no-huddle offense, when you are calling something at the line, the quieter the crowd can be, it certainly is helpful," said Manning, explaining why he gestured for fans to behave themselves in mid-wave.
(((((( I was watching the game, afterr he gestured for then to be quiet as was noisy while audubling a 3rd down, once got it he made sure they got quiet and they shut up & folded arms in their laps , unbelievable )))
Those points u note I love how article call them
Maybe somebody needs to write down the Manning House Rules. In fact, let's begin now:
Peyton was likev standing there facing crowd trying to audible for 3rd down, waving crowd down, then clock running down runs play makes theird downb, looks at crowd , gestures again both arms in air waving at then to sit down and shush &they do as he turns around to all in stadium, and then with clock going runs next play , manageing crownd & clock in his mind , Thats Impressive
Yeah Barry. I have to give you credit brother. You are definitely perceptive of #18's lasting NFL legacy and influence on this league and I have a profound amount of respect for your intellect and your stanch, resolute, and unyielding loyalty to Peyton Manning. Actually, both you and Gramz deserve equal accolades for that crucial fact and reality.
I, like both of you, will always admire #18 to a fault myself. I'll be honest. Peyton is bleeping amazing! You do make a good point though Barry. Very few QBs can demand that kind of full audience compliance on a grand scale and yet still be so humble at the same time.
