Porter on the SB interception
The Denver Broncos signed both Peyton Manning and Tracy Porter in the offseason, bringing together two men who will forever be linked in Super Bowl lore.
It was Porter, of course, who intercepted Manning late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIV, taking it back 74 yards for the game-clinching score for the New Orleans Saints.
Predictably, Porter was asked this week if he has ribbed Manning about the play that altered both their careers.
"Not yet. Coming close," Porter said after Tuesday's OTA session, according to USA Today. "Maybe a little bit down the line. Right now I'm just trying to grasp the defensive playbook and he's trying to take control of that offense. I think once we finally get settled in we'll have enough time to shoot that little joke in. As of right now, we're both still learning."
Porter knows it's inevitable that the play will come up, whether he initiates it or not.
"Trust me, I know if you (reporters) are out there and I happen to intercept Peyton and run it back, that'll be the start of things to come," he said.
Manning is a well-documented "good guy" and all, but we're not sure how well this would go over.
TP: "Hey Peyton, didn't that interception I just had remind you of the greatest failure of your decorated career!"
PM: (thousand-yard stare) "Yep."
TP: (blissfully unaware) "Talk about a case of Déjà vu!"
PM: "I'm going to have you released."

Don't like the Porter signing, it's bad mojo. I'm the only one who thinks this, but come on, that was the worst moment in Peyton's football life, why bring him in? Would the Patriots sign David Tyree? Of course tf not.
gaffney here it is. Colts trailed by 7 with 3 minutes to play in regulation. Manning drove 'em down inside the Saints 30 when Porter went IntTD ....

It was Reggie Waynes's fault. He didn't come out of his break quick enough. Looks like he slipped a little, guys were slipping all game long. Manning put it right on the money.

I like the fact that Porter and Manning are now Broncos, those two guys know what it takes to get to a SB and win a SB.
