Peyton Manning likes to yell the word "Omaha!" right before the ball is snapped.
He explained (kind of) what Omaha means during a news conference Wednesday:
"I've had a lot of people ask what 'Omaha' means," Manning said.
Do go on, Peyton. We all want to know.
"Omaha is a run play, but it could be a pass play or a play-action pass, depending on a couple of things -- the wind, which way we're going, the quarter, and the jerseys we're wearing. It really varies, really, from play-to-play. So there's your answer for that."
So there you go.
