In his regular column for MMQB.com, Sherman ranked Manning as the smartest quarterback in the NFL a few weeks ago.
After gushing about his adjustments for a few sentences, Sherman added: “His arm, however, is another story. His passes will be accurate and on time, but he throws ducks.”
Not exactly a revelation to anybody who has watched Manning toss a football. Asked about the “ducks” on Wednesday, Sherman said, “Well, I still feel the same way I felt.”
And so Manning was asked about that comment Thursday and wasn’t the least bit offended.
“I believe it to be true,” he quipped. “I do throw ‘ducks.’” I’ve thrown a lot of yards and touchdown ‘ducks.’ I am actually quite proud of it.”
