He could have been a nicer to the bootleg Lakers who really played with a lot of heart, while dealing with a ton of injuries.
Peyton Manning spoke with reporters Wednesday for the first time since his Denver Broncos were pummeled 43-8 by the Seattle Seahawks in last February’s Super Bowl. He’s clearly taken the time away from the game to put that ugly loss behind him.
