Yeah he is a cry baby. Late in the game when he threw an incomplete pass he was yelling of a flag before the ball even got to his receiver. Oh wait the ball never did get to him because it was a lousy throw.

The best thing about those 2 booth reviews with less than 2 min left in the game is that it took a TD away from Manning's career stats.

One of my buddies -- a diehard Colts fan -- was watching the game with me. He pointed out to me that Manning will throw towards receivers he believes were on the receiving end of penalties. Take that for whatever it's worth, but Manning IS a very cerebral quarterback. I've seen him do it before. He is usually pissy about penalties because he's usually right. I'm no Manning fan, but he's usually right. And in the case of today, there were some BAD no calls against the Colts. For instance on the play you eluded to the receiver was pushed to the ground.

But ... it's all good because the Packers won! Very Happy

Oh I didn't say he wasn't right. I just hate all the whining. The refs have a job to do so let them do it. In all these years I have yet to see a ref change his mind and reverse his decision of a play after a player complained.
The coaches are the ones that should be talking to the refs about bad calls or non calls not the players.
All the complaining makes them look infantile.
It is almost as if Manning was saying, "Don't you know who I am? Haven't you seen any of my commercials?"

That is one of the reasons I have very little respect for Peyton Manning, the person. He can play football, no doubt, but he seems to be such a dick. If he is not yelling at the officials, he is yelling at his teammates, or yelling at somebody. On the sidelines, he looks like he has a stick up his butt. He is sour-faced and appears to be really unpleasant to be around.

Not a person I would want to deal with either professionally or in my personal life. Probably is just fine when he is winning, but let anything go wrong and somebody will be yelled at.

There are other ways to be a successful leader that are not so divisive.


That sort of behavior is just not conducive to effective leadership. I can imagine that some of the players probably harbor some sort of resentment towards Manning and can't really act on it due to his status on the team.

It is the thing to do these days.. if you don't make the catch.. throw your hands up and whine. All teams do it, it just seems elevated on against the Pack with the way we physically play the game.

His whining talked the crew into flagging Chillar and Williams on close plays.

Can't stand it, but it has become a good share of the game today.. piss and moan.

Well........the reason we see him whining more now is, his team is losing!
I never liked Dan Marino either......he seemed like a jerk too.
The video that was posted (i forgot who posted it) on the previous page shows Manning in his true form. I thought the big guy was gonna deck him!

Exactly! That's why they do it - it won't change that play, but if it happens again, they are less likely to look the other way. I think all QB's get whiney in a game like the Colts had yesterday.

In all fairness, Manning had a case on a couple of occasions -- nothing that would've altered the outcome, but the refs were calling it a bit loose, as has been mentioned.

That said, he was clearly frustrated to the point of being a pretty massive crybaby out there yesterday -- credit to our D for making him that way.
