Peyton Manning may have ignored the Kansas City Chiefs when he was a free agent last offseason (thanks, Scott Pioli) but he isn’t ignoring Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt at this year’s Pro Bowl.
Manning, a perennial Pro Bowler, has a tradition of addressing the players from both teams the night before the first practice. This year he implored the players to start playing at full speed again (if you have watched recently, you know the Pro Bowl has become basically a non-competitive flag football game) and he finished off with a comedy act of sorts.
One of his zingers involved Chiefs punter, Dustin Colquitt.
Couple of rules, couple of reminders. Let’s just keep the pictures and autographs at the pool to a minimum. It’s an area for the guys to hang out, get to know each other. (The rule) is not for guys like me; I’ll sign whatever. It’s for the guys who get bothered (for autographs) all the time. Guys like Dustin Colquitt, Phil Dawson. These guys can’t go anywhere. Rich Incognito. Right? Andrew Whitworth. Right? These guys can’t relax.
We may despise him for playing for the Donkeys and for knocking the Chiefs out of the playoffs a few years back but we have to appreciate him for his humor.
