We knew that Peyton Manning was good at playing football, but last night’s session with David Letterman also underscore his sharp sense of humor.
Letterman asked the Broncos quarterback about the on-field microphones used for broadcasts, which made “Omaha” a buzzword during the playoffs. Manning said he might have to go Chazz Reinhold in the future to stop it.
“I don’t like it, I’m not a fan of it … because it reveals terminology an opponent next week can use,” Manning said, via Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com. “I don’t like Bill Belichick hearing our plays that we’re using … I think you’ve got to get up there and say some really negative things about the commissioner, Roger Goodell, you know, ‘Blue 20, blue 20, Roger Goodell is a no good you know what,’ and I think they’ll just kind of turn that volume down.”
Letterman responded: “As we know about Bill Belichick, he brings his own microphones, so you don’t have to worry about that.”
So Peyton isn’t the only guy who can improvise at the line of scrimmage.
