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!!!"

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt is one of the most fearsome pass rushers the NFL has ever seen. But before he was forcing fumbles and knocking QBs to the turf by the dozens, Watt was an undersized kid with an oversized bullying problem. He was constantly picked on in school, and told that he would never play football because of his size. So when Watt met Billy, a local kid with his own bullying problem, the issue hit close to home.

Things weren't always looking up for the future HOFer. Near the end of his career as a QB at Michigan, Brady was expected to go in the late rounds of the NFL draft, if he was even selected at all. As insurance, Brady whipped up this résumé, and all the details pointed at a quiet, unassuming career in finance. My, how the times have changed.

Ma'ake Kemoeatu has always been on the lookout for his brother Chris. As the eldest of seven siblings, Ma'ke felt it was always his duty to look after the rest of his family - going so far as to receive a game suspension after improperly providing Chris textbooks to finish his schooling.

So when Chris began suffering greater and greater problems from his kidney - flareups and near-constant pain that nearly prevented him from playing the game and forced him to retire early - Ma'ake stepped up and provided the organ for transplant.

According to their doctors, the two players are recovering well. Clearly this is one family willing to step up for one another.
