Obama calls Broncos to congratulate them on Super Bowl win

BRIGHTON, CO - OCTOBER 26:  Democratic presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) speaks on a cell phone to a potential voter during a stop at a campaign office October 26, 2008 in Brighton, Colorado. Obama continues to campaign as Election Day begins to draw near as he runs against his Republican challenger, Sen. John McCain.  (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images) Getty Images

At one point, the Super Bowl postgame coverage included the handing of a phone to the coach of the winning team with a call from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Nowadays, the call comes after the fact.

The Broncos have announced that President Barack Obama called coach Gary Kubiak and team captain DeMarcus Ware on Tuesday to congratulate them on the win.

Quarterback Peyton Manning wasn’t included in the call. Possibly because his Colts beat Obama’s Bears in Super Bowl XLI. (That probably wasn’t the reason. But it would be great if it were.)

The Broncos eventually will visit the White House to meet with Obama. The biggest question is whether the menu for the occasion will include mozzarella sticks and, if so, whether Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller will eat them.

    Obama doesn’t deserve to talk to a class act like Manning !!!

    Obama is a spineless buffoon.

    Yo Broncos, please tell BO thanks for doubling my health insurance rates because of the “affordable” health care act.

    Can you imagine saggy Grandma Hillary calling next year’s SB winner?

    Neither can I.

    Payton is to smart to waste his time listening to that guy talk jibberish.

    Well, Obammy didn’t want to call both Kubiak AND Manning (two white guys). That doesn’t exactly promote “diversity”.

    If CAR had won Obama would have called that night to speak with Cam. You know he would.

    This comment is just to see the political stances of the commenters here. Not whether they like Obama or not. Here goes:

    Thumbs Up for Democrats
    Thumbs Down for Republicans

    if by peoples champion you mean a moron that doesn’t understand basic economics, gdp, and national debt and how it affects interest rates etc. then yes he is

    Next year it will be Trump calling Brady … Win Win.

    we can only hope. im not saying trump is a genius in all matters, he isnt. but i love the guy…i love his complete lack of political correctness.. i think we are all sick of the same old butt kissing politicians

  22. leatherface2012 says: Feb 9, 2016 8:51 PM

    wait for some more “executive actions” . our border will be as porous as the whole browns organization and the saints pass defense.

  23. drunkraider says: Feb 9, 2016 8:53 PM

    how did obama find time between his vacations? or did he call from Hawaii ?

  24. nowareyou says: Feb 9, 2016 8:56 PM

    Next year: Hue Jackson and Jared Goff will gladly accept President Sanders’ invitation.

  25. abninf says: Feb 9, 2016 8:56 PM

    He apologized for calling them the JV team.

  26. 44mpo says: Feb 9, 2016 8:58 PM

    If a call from obama is part of the deal, I am not sure it was worth the win.

  27. koolaidcircusbeast says: Feb 9, 2016 9:10 PM

    I’m so glad I don’t read newspapers or watch the evening news anymore. I get all the necessary knowledge, enlightenment, and honest-to-God facts about politics I could ever need from only the most informed football fans of this great nation right here in the comments section of profootballtalk.

  28. ninjapleazee says: Feb 9, 2016 9:19 PM

    If Carolina won, Obama would have been in the Panthers parade dabbing.

  29. trickbunny says: Feb 9, 2016 9:21 PM

    After every Super Bowl, whatever president is in office calls the winning team. Happens every year going back as far as I can remember.

    So even though that’s all there is to the story, naturally, people have to start offering their political opinions.

    Pretty sure most of us came here for football-related news. No one gives a crap about your political opinions (and that goes for both the ones I agree with and disagree with.)

  30. trainwrecksryan says: Feb 9, 2016 9:30 PM

    Did he give Manning a pardon for the HGH malfeasance?

  31. dcviking says: Feb 9, 2016 9:31 PM

    Obama then told the Broncos since other NFL didn’t win the championship, they would need to give 1/32 of their championship to all the other NFL teams.

  32. rcali says: Feb 9, 2016 9:32 PM

    Less than two years…..

  33. FecalFreak69 says: Feb 9, 2016 9:37 PM

    Valerie Jarrett rubbed his back softly as he spoke…told him how powerful he is ….that THEY would issue an executive order making sure Cam wins next season…tucks him in…

  34. taintedsaints2009 says: Feb 9, 2016 9:48 PM

    Apparently manning is supporting job bush. I’m sur Obama loves hearing that.

  35. leatherface2012 says: Feb 9, 2016 9:56 PM

    obama as usual picked the wrong team. he picked the panthers. what a shock, everything he has done is wrong, or purposely destructive to the country.

  36. William H says: Feb 9, 2016 10:02 PM

    He won two presidential elections. Take some Advil for your keisters and deal with it, losers.

  37. truths4all says: Feb 9, 2016 10:17 PM

    NO ONE CARES AND NO ONE EVEN GIVES A RATS POSTERIOR ABOUT THIS OR OBAMA, THE WORST WANNABE DICTATOR AND PRETEND PRESIDENT IN US HISTORY.

  38. styx630 says: Feb 9, 2016 10:28 PM

    I love stories that mention Obama. The comments are always GOLD.

  39. ohand16 says: Feb 9, 2016 10:41 PM

    They should have hung up on him

    #respect

    Mr President Would Have Called Cam Newton To DAB One Minute After The Carolina Panthers Super Bowl Victory

  41. kyblue33 says: Feb 9, 2016 10:45 PM

    Obama then called Cam, and told him that he was a stellar example of leadership and wondered if he would like a job on his cabinet.

  42. ohand16 says: Feb 9, 2016 10:45 PM

    Next year it will be Weekend at Bernies, Sanders that is

  43. kylexitron says: Feb 9, 2016 11:22 PM

    Obama may not be perfect but it’s hard for me to take criticism of him very seriously considering the utter bafoons and psychopaths the republicans have repeatedly chosen to represent them.

    Much like in football, if you wanna beat the man you’ve gotta be the man. And the republicans choose losers.

    Dislike all you want, it’s just denial and inability to face the truth.

  44. rckymtnthndr17 says: Feb 9, 2016 11:53 PM

    Wonder if Elway will snub the trip like he did in ’97 & ’98

  45. stevent92 says: Feb 9, 2016 11:58 PM

    I would’ve hung up on him.

  46. beauregard says: Feb 10, 2016 12:13 AM

    If Obama had a son…he would act like Cam.

  47. bedoubleu16 says: Feb 10, 2016 12:35 AM

    I bet he still somehow managed to say how great the Bulls are

  48. dejadoh says: Feb 10, 2016 12:59 AM

    If Obama wants Peyton to show up, he better let him know they will have Budweiser on hand.

    “Where’s Ricky Sanders?”

  49. rushbacker says: Feb 10, 2016 3:04 AM

    Thanks a lot, Obama!

  50. Drunk Uncle says: Feb 10, 2016 3:13 AM

    If the national debt impacts interest rates, and the national debt is supposedly so terrible under Obama – isn’t it rather telling that interest rates are at an all time low? Oh, and how bout those extremely low gas prices? Btw, income taxes are at a historically low rate.

    I now make four times than what I made in 2007, and just bought a huge house to boot. Thanks Obama!

  51. anonymousnevermindfishdeath says: Feb 10, 2016 7:50 AM

    I’m not registered to a political party, I feel so left out…

  52. jerrykill4pres says: Feb 10, 2016 8:52 AM

    I hope they were all to high to talk to that maroon!

    Or that they hung up on that pathetic waste of 8 years in office.

    Or maybe Peyton said… Something along the lines of Papa Johns and Budweiser won’t deliver to you.

    Or someone like the MVP said… Barry, i’m to busy tending to my chickens. You know… What a guy does, it’s called work. I don’t have time to talk to someone like you who continues to vacation, and lead this country in the wrong direction while collecting wages from my tax dollars, and the huge pension your going to get.

    Or maybe Mr Elway said… Barrack who? Don’t know any Barrack’s! sorry, wrong number!
