  • Colquitt admits Manning sometimes does what he wants

    Not overly informative, but kind of interesting perspective from our highly paid punter:

    http://cover32.com/broncos/2013/11/1...-conservative/

    There’s been a lot of discussion among Denver media and fans about whether or not Broncos head coach John Fox is too conservative.

    Multiple times this season, and last, Fox has elected to punt on fourth-and-short while fans reign down boos or yell at their televisions.

    cover32′s Alexis Perry recently sat down with Denver’s Britton Colquitt, the man in charge of punting the football, to ask him his thoughts on Fox’s philosophy among other things (the full interview will appear on ModernGladiator.com in the coming days).

    Perry asked Colquitt if there’s ever a battle in his head over whether to listen to Fox, or Peyton Manning, especially when the QB is waving the punting unit off the field.

    “I’ve never been in a baseball pickle between the two because eventually they figure it out. It’s a struggle sometimes when it’s fourth and short, the crowd wants us to go for it but the coaches call for a punt. Great, now I’m running out there, the crowds booing and the devil on my shoulder is saying, ‘they’re booing you! (laughing),’” Colquitt said.

    “I know they’re not, they’re booing the fact that we’re punting, but I’m the punter. They’re booing what I do. Don’t boo me! (laughing)” Colquitt added. “Coach Fox is a really smart, conservative coach, but sometimes I even ask myself why aren’t we going for it or why we’re not going for a long field goal. I just listen to what I’m told to do and everyone else does the same. Well, not Peyton. He’s the only exception.”

    Woah.

      Sounds pretty tongue in cheek to me. Maybe we'll get an "idiot kicker" comment out of it, that would be pretty funny.

          The title of this thread needs to change.

            Just like that scene in The Replacements:

            MARTEL - I make the call out there on the field, not you!
            McGINTY - That's not the way I coach!
            MARTEL - I don't give a sh&! because that's the way I play

                Wait, where are all the "I'd be pissed" and "fine his ass" guys in the DRC thread?

                        Agreed...the title makes it seem like Manning is insolent. Colquitt's quote was more of reverence about Peyton being the man.

                          They made it sound like Elway and Reeves.
