Ernie Sims: 'I'm sick of hearing about Peyton Manning'

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Ernie Sims has been reminded quite enough this week about the greatness of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

Manning has 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions and was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month, but Sims doesn't want to hear about that.

“I’m sick of hearing about Peyton Manning,” Sims told teh Dallas Morning News. “We just got to go out there and do what we’ve got to do.”

Manning is a frequent topic of conversation in the Cowboys' locker room and meetings.

“You hear it all the time when a guy walks into the locker room: ‘Peyton Manning threw for four touchdowns, this and that,’” Sims said. “Yeah, he’s a great player. You can’t take that away from him. But at the end of the day, we’re all competitors. And me being a competitor, I don’t like that. I am ready to play football.”
