    Peyton Manning and the Green Football

    http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/05/peyt...green-football

    Okay - so one of the things I like about Peyton Manning is that he is not above what the other teammates have to do as a means to get better as players.

    I think it is cool really. At the same time I think its part of his makeup I wish he'd relax on and just play football the rest of his career. I think he over thinks too many scenerio's in his head and it hurts him in biggest stages just let game come to you.

    The green football is intended to reduce fumbles ?

    Great, so we let go the one RB who did not fumble once last season and keep the other two that put the ball on the ground what seemed like every game

    And is there a psychological significance to the fact that the ball is "Seahawk Green" ??

    This has nothing to do with green footballs, but I found a number of interesting tidbits in this in depth piece on Manning by Klis this am:
