I'm sure Manning is an ass, but if someone came up to me *right* after losing the superbowl and asked if I was embarrassed, I probably would have hit him. It's one thing for a player to be asked how they feel and to say say they felt embarrassed, it's another thing to ask them if they felt embarrassed (implying that they should). For a person who makes a living as a writer to not be able to make the distinction speaks a lot about Myers.
That comes with the territory of being a megastar professional athlete. This very same writer probably stuck his nose up Manning’s naked rectum (intentional reference) at least five times prior to personally assure his MVP awards. That’s not that bad a question. Manning is a media darling, except when the media doesn’t fellate him and throw the team under the bus when he chokes time after time.
I was watching the highlights of the Saints-Colts Super Bowl the other night; Manning’s lack of poise, leadership, and team buy-in was really on another level. This is a guy who would overrule his coaches and go for it on 4th down (and then he tried it in the playoffs and embarrassed himself.) I just can’t stand this guy for so many reasons, since he was always presented as a knight in shining armor. There have been tons of other players that have been rivals to my team, causing some heartbreaking losses, but I don’t feel the need to trash them like I do with Manning, Dungy, and Polian, the trinity of hypocritical jackassery who played the press better than the game of football.
