Seahawks Cracked Peyton Manning’s Hand Signal code

The Seattle Seahawks are claiming that they were able to decode Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning’s hand signal codes on the field during the Super Bowl.

Seattle Claims the crackep Mannings Hand Signal CodeControversial corner back Richard Sherman said that he and his fellow defenders cracked the code that the Denver Broncos quarterback was using, meaning that they knew exactly what to expect for each play.

According to Sherman…” they figured out which plays went with which hand motions during the first quarter of the Super Bowl.”

Manning’s hand signal codes are known within the league for being one of his common traits on the field, just as the call ‘Omaha’ is associated with the 37-year-old.

Manning is so closely associated with ‘Omaha’ that 15 companies pledged to donate $1,500 to charity each time that he said it during the Super Bowl.

Instead of his typical double digit mentions, he only said it twice during Sunday night’s big game. (By comparison, Fox Sports reported that he said it 31 times during the AFC title game.)

In post game interviews, however, Manning and other Broncos offensive linemen explained that the noise at MetLife stadium stopped some of their verbal messages to one another.

Funny Super Bowl Wagers

From the color of Gatorade to Richard Sherman’s rant…Las Vegas sports enthusiast have released a number of hilarious wagers for the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII.

  • Will it snow during the game?

Yes                  +300     (3/1)

No                    -500     (1/5)

Super Bowl Weekend:  Snow Bowl or Just “Hot Air”?

Super Bowl Weather We’re now four to five days away from Super Bowl weekend, and the specifics, while still with some uncertainties, are starting to come into view now.

  • Saturday: A warm front is expected to lift northward through northern New Jersey as a cold front approaches from the west. This may spread some rain into the region sometime Saturday into Saturday night. To be clear, this is not a major storm, however, low clouds/drizzle may trigger flight delays at the three NYC airports.
  • Super Bowl Sunday: Fortunately, Saturday’s system will have exited well into the Canadian Maritimes by early in the day. So, expect clearing skies, a lingering breeze, perhaps a leftover early morning flurry, and temperatures fairly close to average for early February.
  • Outlook for the Super Bowl (6:30 p.m ET):  Kickoff temperature should be in the 30s, possibly dropping into the upper 20s by late in the game. Any breezes from the afternoon will be diminishing, so we don’t expect wind to be a factor, at all. No rain or snow expected.

According to NFL Executive Vice President Eric Grubman, the game could be played any day from Friday, January 31 to Monday, February 3, in case of a major winter storm.

  • Will the power go out in the stadium during the game?

Yes                              25/1

I’m sure the NFL would like to avoid a second straight Super Bowl where the lights went out during the game.

  • How many times will Peyton Manning say “Omaha” during the game?

Over/Under                   27½

Give me the over.

  • Will Michael Crabtree mention Richard Sherman in a tweet during the Super Bowl from kickoff until final whistle?

Michael Crabtree twitterYes                  +150     (3/2)

No                    -200     (1/2)

  • Will the announcers say the word “Marijuana” during the game?

Yes                  +550     (11/2)

No                    -900     (1/9)

NFL could indeed change its mind about marijuanaThe only two states (Colorado, Washington) where marijuana has been legalized for recreational use are sending teams to the Super Bowl. Commence, “Weed Bowl”.  So it probably shouldn’t come as any surprise that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about marijuana on Monday.

Carroll wasn’t asked about recreational marijuana use though, he was asked his thoughts on the use of medicinal marijuana in the NFL.

“We have to continue to explore and compete to find ways that are going to make our game a better game and take care of our players in the best way possible,” Carroll said.”The fact that it’s in the world of medicine is obviously something [that Commissioner Roger Goodell] realizes and him making the expression that we need to follow the information and the research absolutely I’m in support of. Regardless of what other stigmas may be involved, I think we have to do this because the world of medicine is trying to do the exact same thing and figure it out and they’re coming to some conclusions.”

  • Will any member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers be shirtless during their performance

Red Hot Chilli Pepper Super BowlYes                  EVEN   (1/1)

No                    -140      (5/7)

  • What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?

  • If the Broncos win will Peyton Manning retire before game 1 of the 2014 Regular Season and sign an endorsemnt to become the face of Omaha Steaks?

Yes                  +700     (7/1)

No                    -1500    (1/15)

No way, right?  Archie Manning, said he expected his son to continue to play for the Denver Broncos beyond this season, even if he added a second Super Bowl championship to his long list of accomplishments.

“I think he still enjoys it,” Archie Manning said in a phone interview. “If he can continue to enjoy it and stay healthy, I think he wants to play.”

Peyton Manning, who turns 38 on March 24, has not missed a game for Denver despite multiple surgical procedures on his neck that sidelined him for the 2011 season, his last with the Indianapolis Colts.

Peyton Manning Omaha

Manning’s use of “Omaha” became such a huge story indicates just how little we all understand about the game. Manning’s ability to read, react and adjust at the line of scrimmage is well documented, but how he does it seems to be a mystery.

In fact, Manning does many of the same things at the line of scrimmage as other quarterbacks. Manning isn’t the only quarterback that uses the word “Omaha,” and he isn’t the only quarterback that adjusts protections, routes and plays at the line of scrimmage, either


The difference between Manning and other quarterbacks is that he almost always makes the correct adjustments. When he’s wrong, he and his receivers know how to adjust after the snap.

Peyton Manning Explains the Meaning of Omaha

Peyton Manning has made some sense of all this “Omaha” hoopla. Wednesday during his AFC Championship game week press conference Broncos quarterback Peyton answered tie big question…Peyton, what’s up with Omaha?   Manning said “Omaha, it’s a run play.”

“But it could be a pass play, or a play-action pass, depending on a couple of things: the wind, which way we’re going, the quarter, and the jerseys that we’re wearing,” Manning said.

“It really varies, really, from play-to-play. So there’s your answer to that.”  Now you know the rest of the story…

Will Richard Sherman be interviewed on field after the game on the live FOX broadcast?

No                    -110

I don’t see why not.  In case you missed it…watch video here
