Big photos, tweets below.
Prior to yesterday's ultra-frigid Broncos game against the Titans, the story line was simple: Peyton Manning plays lousy in the cold. Well, check that. Manning threw for 397 yards and four TDs in a 51-28 romp, and in an interview with KOA after the game, he told the author of that particular narrative to shove it. His performance didn't silence critics, but Twitter abounded with fans gleefully saying, "I told you so" -- except usually in a more colorful way. See our top twenty post-game tweets about Manning and the cold below, illustrated with screen caps from the win.

Everyone says it's his playoff record because "he's" choked or lost..... Last time I checked there are ten other guys on offense and 11 on defense to help win or lose games. Manning is a great quarterback. That's fact. Those who make fun or talk trash is because he might be the best to ever play that position and they have crap. That too, is also fact. ;-)

It's one game against Tennessee.....Do it in January against the Patriots when it matters more.

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile. But hey, he is Peyton Manning he could play well during an earthquake and hurricane at the same time, and I'm not really a fan of his.

Yes, but Mr. Manning has yet to demonstrate he can play in the cold against a better QB (Tom Brady), a better coach (Bill Beelezichick) and a better team (the Patriots).


Until then, it's business as usual...

I seriously doubt Peyton told anyone to shove it in any interview. He carries himself with a lot more class than what this article suggests. So for the Westward to write such an article about something that didn't happen, makes them no better than the people who wrote the narrative on him playing in the cold in the first place.

Throwing 4 tds with no interceptions is not luck. The titans were the best pass D The leguage, they got ripped yesterday.

Correction: Peyton can't play in the cold against the Patriots.

Actually, as several writers have pointed out, Peyton has done pretty well in cold games, but his teammates on those teams did not. :/ It's people that don't know football that keep the myth going. :P

Doesnt anybody take into account that all the "cold" games were road games while he was in Indy? That franchise was terrible when he got there as well.

Everyone is right (sarcasm) Peyton cant play in the cold, he only scores 30 in each, the D has nothing to do with those losses....

You know Daniel I would agree but if you practice in this weather day in day out you'll get use to it remember he's not in a dome no more and the more you face adversity the more stronger you get

Has anyone else noticed that he looked like Beavis as The Great Cornholio with that sock on his head?

The "tale" of Peyton's trouble playing in cold weather was never a myth, we all watched the playoff game against Baltimore last January. It seems he's done something to correct the problem (which of course he had to), and I'm sure we fans are all happy to see it. So now let's just get on with it!

I think he MORE than proved it. Some of the commentators kept bringing up dropped passes which weren't his fault every time, by ANY stretch of the imagination. The critics need to shove it and the critics of the record-setting kick by Prater need to shove it too. Haters are always gonna be haters.

So you agree that Peyton's record in cold weather is because of tougher opponents faced during the playoffs that just happen to coincide with colder temps and not the weather itself?

He may get the chance to try, Clayton. Thanks for posting.

Those sound like some pretty adverse conditions, John. Thanks for weighing in.

@RustyShackleford


So peyton's cold weather record does have everything to do with the quality of the opponent and the claims of it being cold weather caused are unfounded...

Ouch! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Sam. We're going to make your post an upcoming Comment of the Day. Much appreciated.

The baltimore loss was largely due to conservative coaching calls like the patriots loss this year.  Peyton was basically playing in handcuffs both of those games and they never really established the passing game.

Hope you're right, Lawrence. Thanks for posting.
