Peyton Manning Was None Too Happy With the Mile High Stadium Scoreboard Operator Last Night

A visibly frustrated Peyton Manning implored the crowd to quiet down during a play late in the game last night, and could be seen mouthing "shut up" after one of his offensive linemen got flagged for a false start. In the post-game press conference, Manning clarified that it wasn't the fans who were getting on his nerves, it was the scoreboard operator who was playing graphics encouraging fans to get up, get loud, and dance.

Getting up, getting loud, and dancing are all well and good, just save it for when the home team's on defense!

"Shut up!!!"

Tim Tebow is headed to New Jersey after being pushed out of Denver by Peyton Manning.

NBC Sports reports that the Jets gave up a fourth-round draft pick for Tebow, who will now be nipping at starting QB Mark Sanchez's Achilles heel.

In other football news, the NFL handed down sentencing today following the conclusion of its investigation into the New Orleans Saints' "bounty program."

General manager Mickey Loomis has been suspended for eight games; head coach Sean Payton received a year-long suspension; and former defensive coordinator Gregg William, the program's mastermind, is suspended indefinitely.

Additionally, the Saints will pay a $500,000 fine, and lose their second round draft pick for the next two years.

The new Tebowing is... Manning?

ESPN is reporting that Peyton Manning -- newly released from the Indianapolis Colts -- is engaged in "intensified contract negotiations" with the Denver Broncos to replace Tim Tebow as the team's quarterback.

According to ESPN's sources, the Broncos will attempt to trade Tebow once the deal with Manning is finalized, which only an "unforeseen significant obstacle" would  prevent at this point.
