Peyton Manning and Richard Sherman can agree to agree. No war of words between the record-setting Broncos quarterback and the star Seahawks cornerback who will try to slow him down in the Super Bowl.

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.”
