Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did not have a good game in Super Bowl XLVIII. But he took issue with a suggestion that he had an embarrassing game.

Manning became visibly annoyed when he was asked by a reporter if he felt that the Broncos put on an embarrassing performance. Manning answered the question by saying he thinks putting it that way is an insult to himself and his teammates.

“We put in a lot of hard work and effort,” Manning said. “The word ‘embarrassing,’ I think, is an insulting word.”
