Peyton Manning Trolls Patriots With Lame Deflategate Joke

Good one, Peyton


Jan 28, 2021

Deflategate saw some life breathed into it this week, thanks to Peyton Manning.

During the latest episode of “Peyton’s Place,” the former NFL Indianapolis Colts quarterback and longtime New England Patriots rival interviewed actor Kurt Russell. While talking about his 1986 film, “The Best of Times,” Russell discussed what it was like playing a quarterback after suffering a torn rotator cuff years prior.

โ€œ(The football was) kinda softened a little bit so I can get on top of it,” Russell, a Massachusetts native, said.

Here’s how Manning responded:

โ€œKinda like the Patriots, yeah.โ€

Ah, nothing like a good Deflategate joke.

Manning might want to think twice before commenting on other players’ cheating scandals, considering his own potentially checkered past.
