Peyton Manning is one of the smartest players to have ever played the game and he gets visibly angry when he sees teams making simple mistakes while he’s calling games on Monday Night Football.
Before halftime of the Cowboys-Eagles game on Monday Night, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy had the chance to stop the clock with two timeouts late in the second quarter which would have given the team plenty of time to drive down the field to score.
Unfortunately for Cowboys fans, McCarthy decided not to call any timeouts before the half.
Mike McCarthy could called timeout…
at 1:50 before 3rd & 24 or
at 1:02 before 4th & 5

While calling the game, a visibly disgusted Peyton was seen yelling at McCarthy to call a timeout.

Fans also went on to blast McCarthy over his terrible clock management skills.
Peyton Manning going nuts on Mike McCarthy for not calling a time out and mismanaging the game clock is all you need to know about the Cowboys head coach situation #MNF

Watching Peyton, in real time, just be utterly puzzled by Mike McCarthy’s alleged “game management” is delightful.
