Horse Tracks: Making fun of Peyton Manning trade rumors

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The silliness of the Peyton Manning trade rumors that were reported on yesterday awoke my inner troll. Let's review the drama as it unfolded on Twitter yesterday and inject a little meme fun to characterize each player in this saga.

For the record, I couldn't care less if the rumors are true or false. Any player has a price and it looks like the Houston Texans were not willing to pay what the Denver Broncos felt Peyton Manning was worth. So if anything, the narrative should be "Texans think Manning isn't worth very much," not "OMG Broncos hate Manning!"

So with that in mind, let's make fun of the entire situation by associating each tweet with its own meme, shall we? Scroll slowly, as it's important you read the tweet BEFORE you see the meme. :)

That about sums up the drama yesterday and it's us bloggers who are the crazy ones. Well OK, maybe that's still true. Now for the daily Broncos news ya'll have been waiting for.
