Yesterday in his press conference Peyton Manning stepped forward to take any and all blame for the Broncos’ 43-21 loss to the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
“On offense we just didn’t do the things we talked about doing, and that starts with me. I’ve got to play better,” Manning said. “That’s pretty plain and simple. When the quarterback stinks usually not going to win many games.”
“[I was] talking with Dave Logan and he said ‘I’ve never heard you say you stink before,’ and I don’t usually stink,” Manning said, referring to a postgame interview with the Broncos’ flagship radio station. “But I stunk today. I don’t make excuses, I don’t say it happens every now and then.”
Manning let me tell you something, if throwing for 438 yards stinks, I would love to have a stinky quarterback on my team.
