Peyton Manning tucks jersey into sweatpants, looks like a Neo-Maxi-Zoom-Dweebie (photos)
First things first: No one is going to confuse Peyton Manning with a Super Bowl fashion icon. Still, what Peyton Manning lacks in any semblance of style he more than makes up for it with unparallelled skill on the football field.
And yet, the wardrobe choices the Denver Broncos quarterback made before stepping up to the podium to address the media on Thursday morning during Super Bowl week? Um, not good. Not good at all.

Let us count the ways Manning erred in this ensemble. Sweatpants? Check. Said sweatpants pulled up past the waist? Got it. Tucking in jersey into said sweatpants? You better believe it.
Good grief, man. Thank goodness someone freed him from the locker his teammates locked him in after practice so he could do this presser.
Okay, maybe that didn’t happen, but if he wasn’t the star quarterback and this was high school? Even with the presence of a football jersey, we’re talking Swirlie City, man. Followed by an Atomic Wedgie. All before a shamed stroll down the hallway to the safe and friendly confines of the AV Club room for an extreme after-school session of “Dungeons & Dragons.”
That is if someone didn’t stuff him in a locker first. Again.
