Dwight Freeney is hoping to take some anger out on another Manning this season.
This is a stretch, and certainly far off, but if the NFL season ended today the Indianapolis Colts would make the playoffs and the Denver Broncos would win the AFC West. When asked about the possibility, Colts pass rusher extraordinaire Dwight Freeney said he would love to hit his former quarterback Peyton Manning if they met in the playoffs:
“Peyton obviously was the staple of Indianapolis and this organization for years. I went after him in practice year in and year out and never got a chance to hit him. So, yeah, I would love to hit him…if you think about it, that’ll be strange, but I’ll be excited.”
Like I said, this is a stretch, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. But it would be one hell of a story line if Peyton was to meet his former team and the man who supplanted him in Indy, Andrew Luck, in the post-season.
