Horse Tracks: Peyton Manning is getting tired of people calling him old

New, comments

Good Morning Broncos Country!

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is entering his 17th season in the NFL at the age of 39. He knows that he is old by NFL standards, but he wishes we would all come up with some more creative ways to call him "old".

Peyton Manning spoke to the media for the last time until Training Camp and told reporters that he wishes people would stop calling him old. He even suggested that the fans hold a Twitter contest to come up with a better synonym.

"Y'all keep using that word a lot. There's got to be a synonym out there,"

So instead of calling Peyton old we can call him experienced, seasoned, along in years, grizzled, veteran or even middle-aged.

Emmanuel Sanders loves him some Rock 'n' Roll:

Who loves short shorts? Apparently Andre Caldwell does.
