Peyton Manning insulted by reporter who dubs Super Bowl performance as 'embarrassing'

Sure, Peyton Manning and the Broncos may have experienced some humiliation during their 43-8 defeat at the hands of the Seahawks on Sunday in the Super Bowl. But just don't expect Manning to peg his team's performance as "embarrassing."

"It's not embarrassing at all, I would never use that word,'' Manning said after the game. “We put in a lot of hard work and effort. The word embarrassing is an insulting word, to tell you the truth."

Despite the lackluster outcome, Manning set a new Super Bowl record by completing 34 pass attempts. However, his quarterback rating of 24.4 was the lowest of the season and worst since Rex Grossman tallied 7.1 in 2006.
