Watch: Peyton Manning PANCAKE BLOCKS Donte Whitner

New, comments

Washed up? Not as a lead blocker.

James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Peyton Manning may be washed up... or maybe he isn't. But he's certainly not afraid to take on an NFL safety.

Donte Whitner found that out the hard way Sunday.

Look, I'm not saying it's embarrassing to get pancake-blocked by Peyton Manning. And I'm not saying it's embarrassing to get pancake-blocked by a 39-year-old. But to get pancake blocked by 39-year-old Peyton Manning? Someone needs to retire in that play, and I'm not so sure it's Peyton.

Maybe it's not the end of Peyton's career at all. Maybe it's just time for that transition to fullback absolutely no one's been talking about.

Peyton Manning, lead blocker? This really is Peyton's Tim Tebow year.
