Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s use and fondness of the word “Omaha” has been well documented this post season. Manning tried to explain the words meaning without giving it away.

“I’m not sure I know how to answer that, but I’ve had a lot people ask what ‘Omaha’ means,” Manning told reporters during his media availability, via Pro Football Talk.  “‘Omaha’ is a run play, but it could be a pass play or a play-action pass depending on a couple things – the wind, which way we’re going, the quarter and the jerseys that we’re wearing.  It varies really play to play.  There’s your answer to that one.”

Today you might have heard Manning yelling something else, Marshall to be specific. What it means I don’t know, but it is the name of his son.
