Peyton Manning Cheating Scandal Exposed; Jay Cutler Comments On Chicago Bears QB Controversy!

Written by Chris Powers

Peyton Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. For years, many people said he was even better than Tom Brady, but that is hard to argue now that Brady has now won 7 Super Bowl rings. With that said, Brady has been known to cheat throughout his career, while Manning walked a straight line.

That is until now. Manning no longer has the squeaky clean image that he once did.

Former Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman Tarik Glenn said that his team used hearing aids to hear Peyton Manning control the line of scrimmage. Unauthorized communication devices are not allowed in the NFL, and this clearly will not result in any sort of punishment because it dates back to Manning’s rookie season. Of course Manning no longer plays in the NFL and is now a Hall of Famer for the class of 2021.

Unfortunately, Manning deserves an asterisk next to his name in the Hall of Fame for being a cheater.

Glenn was quoted saying the following:

“We were playing on the road, it might have been Peyton’s rookie year, and it was really loud,” Glenn said. “Peyton hadn’t mastered the silent count, so (former offensive line coach) Howard Mudd had us wearing these hearing aids that were supposed to muffle the crowd while projecting the quarterback’s voice.

“Peyton said, ‘Hike,’ and I didn’t hear him. Everybody moved and I was still on the line of scrimmage. My man ran right by me. I turned around and yelled to Peyton, ‘Watch out!’. He didn’t hear me and he got sacked. When I got back to the huddle, I told him I had yelled. He said, ‘You couldn’t hear me, so what makes you think I could hear you?’ I thought that was pretty funny. Peyton didn’t think it was that funny at the time, but we laugh about it today.”

In other NFL news, former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had the following to say about the Bears quarterback situation. Between Justin Fields, Nick Foles, and Andy Dalton, there are several options to choose from.

“I wouldn’t play the kid to start,” he said in an interview on ESPN Chicago this week. “I’d let him watch. I think it’s just a tough spot to just throw someone out there, especially in Chicago. And I think Andy is more than serviceable. I think they can win games with Andy and kind of pull the ship along until [Fields] is ready.”

“He’s obviously talented. He can move. He can throw. He won a lot at Ohio State. He seems to have a little chip on his shoulder, which I don’t think is a bad thing. But like we’ve talked about numerous times, when you’re playing quarterback, there are a lot of moving parts. They have to get the line [stabilized]. They have to get some weapons. … And I really like [head coach Matt Nagy]. That’s never been an issue in my mind. I think he’s going to put together a plan,” Cutler added.
