Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning throws “ducks.” And Thursday, Peyton Manning agreed with him saying he does throw ducks.
“They say he’s a smart player, and I don’t think that’s a real reach what he’s saying there,” Manning said Thursday morning. “I do throw ducks. I’ve thrown a lot of yards and touchdown ducks, so I’m actually quite proud of it.”
Earlier this season, Sherman praised Manning’s intelligence but added that he throws “ducks” at times. Sherman was then asked about the comment in the Seahawks’ media session Wednesday and did not retreat.
“Well, I still feel the same way I felt,” Sherman said Wednesday. “He is a great quarterback, he does a great job. At the same time, when he catches the ball, he doesn’t necessarily catch the laces all the time. He throws an accurate ball in regards to how he catches it, he just gets it on time and delivers it accurately.”
