Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s loud and very audible yells of Omaha at the line of scrimmage were covered ad nauseam in the week leading up to the AFC Championship game. Manning even tried to explain the call without revealing what exactly it means.
“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.”
Since then we’ve seen him yell “Marshall” a lot today, and here is a new one. It sounds like Manning is yelling “fat man” at the line of scrimmage. Of course it could be “Batman” too.
