This will not be a very interesting thread, but this is driving me nuts. During the Broncos game, CBS showed Manning (well, his legs, anyway) on the sideline, behind a large white screen that was being held by a couple of Colts sideline folk. What the hell is he being screened from? The Googles did not tell me the story behind this, so I leave it to you, MGoBoard. I'm willing to get negged for this if it results in this mystery being solved.
OT/Pointless: What's with the Manning Screen?
It was 110 degrees on the field. They were just staying in the shade.
Watching film...hasselbeck did something similar and Dan fours said coaches were showing him film.
Maybe I am mistaken, but I thought it was illegal to watch film during the game. I'm not sure why Dan Fouts would say that. That is why quarterbacks are often flipping through still images on the sideline.
Correct me if I'm wrong, though.
Yep it is just there to provide shade. Or is it..........?
He was sticking pins in a Charles Woodson doll for "stealing" his Heisman.
There's a reason why Woodson got the Heisman and not Payton Whinning!!!!
However I highly doubt it was too hot for this guy. Remember he grew up in New Orleans (a fact that led to many people disliking me when I said I hated this guy at Tulane) which is considerable warmer than Denver.
On that note, wooooooooooooooo Woodson
It was over 100 degrees on the field yesterday, pretty similar I would guess to New Orleans. I would want some shade in that kind of heat.
Personally, I'd kind of feel like a bitch to be one of the three guys on the team who is blessed with a sunscreen on the sideline. The visual evoked images of Colts interns holding Forehead McAudible up on a sedan chair on the sideline.
