Cowboys Defense Sick Of Manning Praise

Cowboys_Felix_Jones_2013IRVING, Texas — All due respect to Peyton Manning, but some Dallas Cowboys defenders would rather not participate in all the raving about the Denver Broncos quarterback’s record-setting pace.

Manning leads the league in every major passing category entering Sunday’s game at AT&T Stadium, having thrown for 1,470 yards and 16 touchdowns without an interception during Denver’s 4-0 start. Those numbers, along with Manning’s 138.0 passer rating, project to shatter NFL records for a season.

Naturally, Manning’s spectacular start has provided ample fodder for media questioning in the Cowboys’ locker room this week.

“I’m sick of hearing about Peyton Manning this and that and that,” said linebacker Ernie Sims, who expects to replace struggling starter Bruce Carter in the lineup Sunday.
