Default Peyton Excuse for no post game congratulations

It's easy to show "good sportsmanship" when you win............although that's even been questionable in the past.

Quote:
Manning, Wayne skipped post-game handshakes

The key play in the Indianapolis Colts' Super Bowl XLIV loss was the interception that Peyton Manning threw on a pass intended for Reggie Wayne.

And so it's no surprise that Manning and Wayne weren't in particularly good spirits after the game, and that they went straight to the locker room instead of sticking around on the field afterward to offer post-game handshakes to the Saints.

But while it may not be surprising, Manning has been accused of "poor sportsmanship" for going to the leaving the field before offering congratulations to the Saints. And Wayne said he may have gotten to the locker room even more quickly than Manning.

"I didn't even watch them celebrate,'' Wayne said. "I was one of the first ones in the locker room. They're probably still out there. That's the way it goes when you win the Super Bowl. You stay out there. When you lose, you go to the locker room.''

Manning didn't give a post-game hug to Saints quarterback Drew Brees, but he said he'd call Brees to say congratulations.

"The stage is being set up for the celebration and it was time for the Saints to celebrate at midfield," Manning said. "They deserved the moment.''

After all the hard work and effort put in to make it to the super bowl and then lose, I'd head straight for the locker room myself. I don't see the big deal here either.

Just Manning haters looking for a reason to *****! He was right, it was the Saints stage, let them have it. IF he had taken the time to hunt down Brees someone would have accused him of tring to steal the moment. He did the right thing.

I'm a huge Manning hater (unabashedly), but I don't see anything wrong with him leaving the field. If it was a regular season game, that's one thing. Letting the Saints celebrate the Super Bowl victory is a whole other matter.

Hmmm, I am not a Manning hater but seems like you should do what is customary and this sounds like the hollow excuse of a child. His Mangina was hurt so he walked off sulking.

I actually agree with the both of you...if that's possible. Brees was totally mobbed after the game by photographers and reporters. It would've made the loss even harder weeding and fighting through all the vultures looking for their.

I don't blame them for not doing the after game congratulating. However, there's no doubt Jughead's mangina was puffy red from the loss.

If my opinion of Manning is correct, all this is going to do is make him that much more determined next season, which is NOT good news for Texan fans. And again, I couldn't care less about if he congradulated Brees or not after the game. He said he was going to call him, which by my thinking is good enough.

Manning was probably on the phone talking to Andre Johnson...congratulating him on the beginning of the Texan Era in the AFC South. It's time baby. It's time.

Peyton doesn't give 2 cents for what is "customary."

He rarely even congratulates his own teammates when they catch TD passes.

He generally just walks over to the sidelines.

And throws little hissy fits when something doesn't go his way (ie his act after their place kicker missed a field goal).

He acted this way when we beat them too. I don't know about going over to Brees but go over to one of the Saints and shake a hand, do something. Here's to hoping we send him to the locker room like that one day.

I remember LeBron James did something like this after the Cavs lost to the Magic in the Semifinals last year. The media had a hissy fit over him leaving the court without talking to reporters and people were saying he was a poor sport. It's not exactly the same, since it wasn't the finals, but close.

I just don't think there is an issue here though. After every regular season and playoff game you see the coaches shaking hands, but not QBs/RBs/WRs/etc. It's not the norm as far as I'm concerned. I don't remember Brady congratulating Eli Manning, or Warner shaking Rothlisberger's hand last year. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't, but I wouldn't hold it against them if they just wanted to hit the showers to get out of there.

What is the big deal?Watching the coverage, Brees was on people's shoulders, doused in water and celebrating in a mob. From the ones I read, Peyton's comments after the game were classy and took nothing from the Saints. They didn't want to fight through the massive crowds and ruin the celebration.

I respect Manning a ton but never was a huge fan.(seemed to yell at guys like it was always their fault, ala Marino) Like him more than I did. This is a non-story.

Oh yeah, as I said, his surliness towards teamates, etc reminds me of Marino in games...if it is complete, it was a great pass. If it is incomplete, alot of pointing at the WR and telling him to finish his route, etc. What is scary is that I think he has improved on this alot and I like him more now. But still not a fave, just respect.
