FRIDAY: Tom Tolbert

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning joined the show to talk about the upcoming season. Here are some of his takes:

— Manning had some interesting comments on his “Football on Your Phone” DIRECTV commercial. The rap video has been a complete sellout by me and my brother. We’ve sold our souls. When DIRECTV pitched the idea, I took and a long time to think about it. and I said I just don’t know.  …It was like 4th-and-1 going deep. You can’t go half speed. You have to go full speed. … Once you get into a different character you can feel like somebody else and not yourself and go for it and have some fun doing it. … Teammates and fans in the stand are singing ‘Football on Your Phone.'”

— Manning said opening night is  a big deal. “It is closest thing to a playoff game,” Manning said.

— Manning said that he tries not to play angry. “You better get back to zero,” Manning said. “They always said Joe Montana had the greatest percentage of successful drives after an interception.”

— Manning discussed his future and said when he was out of the game with the injured neck he really missed the game. “I don’t have a set number of years I want to play or am set to play,” Manning said. “When you’re coming off a major injury and didn’t quite know what the future held. … This past season was very gratifying for me to get back on the field.”

— Dan asked how Manning defines a good season. Manning said that he’d rather lose in the playoffs then go 8-8, but end your season on an upbeat note. “I’d rather have my guts ripped out,” Manning said. “Because that means I’m knocking on the door. That means I’m closer.”
