After Peyton Manning tossed his record-breaking 509th career touchdown last night, the Broncos' receiving corps took the newly historic ball and razzed their quarterback with a seemingly impromptu game of keep-away. It was fun to see the stoic and anal-retentive Manning hopping around like a kid on a playground, for once not in complete control of everything that was happening on the field. Until we found out the whole thing was choreographed.
That's corny! So damn corny! But not all that surprising, I suppose, considering Manning's aforementioned reputation for being a control freak. The routine was probably the result of hours of practice, film breakdown, and Wes Welker getting yelled at for forgetting to audible out of the round of high-fives.
