Well, it looks like the “let’s get real” chapter in Peyton Manning’s career in Denver has officially begun.
Darren “Dmac” McKee of 104.3 the Fan radio went live with WBZ1030 CBS radio in Boston yesterday and really let it fly concerning his feelings about number 18. Among other things, Dmac stated that Manning “miserably” failed the test of courage in the Colts game and that he has no friends on the team. Dmac also dropped this gem:
“It’s just he’s … did you really like the richest kid on your block who always had everything and always had to have everything his way and everything always went right for him and life just went fantastic for that rich kid? There’s just something unlikeable about that guy, even if he’s a great guy,” McKee said. “Manning, don’t you wish like a cement truck would fall on his head at some point?”
Now that’s what I call keeping it real. Dmac is finally saying some of the same things that many Denver fans have been thinking but have been afraid to say. As long as Manning is part of the Broncos the Broncos will be all about Manning. Soon we will know if the disaster at Dove Valley was all about Manning, too.
