IFWT_P Manning 1

HA! Once again, how can you not like this guy?!  Anyone that is an NFL fan was wondering the same thing last weekend — what the hell does Peyton’s “Omaha” call mean.  Well he’s finally explained it — kinda — you didn’t really think he’s going to spill secrets did you?!


Via FTW:

“I’ve had a lot of people ask what Omaha means. Well, Omaha, it’s a run play,” Manning said Wednesday during his AFC Championship game week press conference.

Manning’s dead-pan delivery made it seem like he was actually trying to give a lesson in football. But we should all know by now that Manning wouldn’t dare give away any secrets to his pre-snap theatrics.

So Manning continued to elaborate on the Omaha call.

“But it could be a pass play, or a play-action pass, depending on a couple of things: the wind, which way we’re going, the quarter, and the jerseys that we’re wearing,” Manning said. “It really varies, really, from play-to-play. So there’s your answer to that.”
