Peyton: ‘Embarrassing’ Is An Insulting Word

Source: ESPN

The Denver Broncos had four turnovers and managed just one score against the mighty Seattle Seahawks defense in the Super Bowl. But don’t tell Peyton Manning that his team’s performance Sunday was embarrassing.

“It’s not embarrassing at all. I would never use that word,” Manning said after the game. “The word ’embarrassing’ is an insulting word, to tell you the truth.”

Manning completed 34 of 49 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas, but he couldn’t find a route over the Seahawks’ “Legion of Boom” secondary and also threw two interceptions. The Seahawks pounded the Broncos 43-8.

Manning’s total quarterback rating of 24.4 was his lowest of the season and the worst in a Super Bowl since Rex Grossman‘s 7.1 in 2006.
