Tip to Stan, Schottenheimer talks about 18
Marty Schottenheimer, who’s coached against Manning a few times while running a handful of teams, stood in the hallway leading to the locker rooms after the game. He was there to lend some support and wisdom to Manning’s opposite, Jets rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez, but he couldn’t stop himself from fussing over Manning.
“It’s third-and-five and he gets six yards, or third-and-eight and he gets nine. Never fails,” he said. “The guy’s taken what, a couple thousand snaps?
“And how much would you bet that he can recall each and every one?”
