Here’s Peyton Manning Relaxing in a Cold Tub While Wearing a Helmet and Using an iPad
Haha. Look at this fucking guy.
The Denver Broncos were quick to post an explanation for the bizarre picture that’s been circulating around the internet over the past 36 hours.
For Peyton Manning, “did not participate” doesn't tell the whole story.
Earlier this season, Manning and tight end Julius Thomas found themselves in the training room instead of practice on a Wednesday.
Not wanting to miss out on mental reps, Manning took matters into his own hands.
With his injured ankle in the cold tub, the quarterback kept his helmet on to listen to the play calls from Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase, who was on the practice field. Simultaneously, he watched game tape on his iPad.
“He heard the calls, he'd repeat them to Julius and they were kind of – it was a way for them to take two hours and stay in the game plan,” explained Gase, who laughed that he couldn't believe the photo made it onto CBS' broadcast last week.
It might be the definition of multitasking.
Say what you want about Manning, but his commitment to avoiding coolness is impressive. He has an unblemished record in that department.
