Peyton's (Water) Fowl Arm

Manning versus Sherman in duck-gate.
January 30 2014, 2:37 PM

There’s been lots of go-around today on Peyton Manning’s politely worded beef with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who called out Denver’s star quarterback several weeks ago and compared Manning’s wobbling passes to “ducks.” (An assessment Sherman stood behind this week when he was asked about it.)

Manning fired back today in the most Manning way possible, says USA Today:

“ 'I believe it to be true as well,’ Manning deadpanned from the podium on the cruise ship the NFL is using for Broncos Super Bowl press conferences. … 'You can see [Sherman is] a smart player,’ said Manning. '… I do throw ducks. I throw a lot of yards and touchdowns-ducks. So I'm actually quite proud of it.’ "

And boom goes the duck-a-mite.
