NFL Picks: Pey­ton picks on press, press picks foes

Toronto Star - - SPORTS -

Den­ver (+3) at Kansas City

Pey­ton Man­ning got a lit­tle snippy dur­ing a press con­fer­ence this week, in his old age. The Bron­cos quar­ter­back and beloved pitch­man was be­ing asked about his in­juries, and turned the ta­bles to give in­jury re­ports for re­porters which in­cluded gout, carpal tun­nel from tex­ting sources, laryn­gi­tis “from rip­ping me all week,” and over­all health. He’s a funny guy, Pey­ton, even if his arm strength is fad­ing. But for sportswrit­ers he missed a few clas­sic cases: thin­ning hair, liquor-soaked liv­ers, stress wrin­kles, and oc­ca­sional ra­bid­ity. You get the feel­ing that we might be close to see­ing the last of ol’ Pey­ton. I mean, on a football field. We’ll see plenty of him when he’s Pres­i­dent. Pick: Kansas City Bruce Arthur
