Giants | Peyton defends younger brother

Judy Battista, of The New York Times, reports Indianapolis Colts QB Peyton Manning appeared to direct comments at former New York Giants RB and current NBC commentator Tiki Barber Wednesday, Aug. 22. Barber had questioned the leadership ability of Peyton's younger brother, Giants QB Eli Manning, during a television appearance Sunday, Aug. 19. "Ex-players truly become ex-players right away, the No. 1 job is to criticize players," said Peyton. "I'm pretty defensive of all quarterbacks. Eli is my brother. I'm very loyal to my family. I'd rather you criticize me. I don't think anybody knows what it's like to be a quarterback except a current quarterback." Peyton added, "It's supposed to be a code, teammates to teammates. That's the problem we're going to have with ex-players going to the media. When I retire, I know what I don't want to do."
