A perfect sample of Peyton-hating

Some people are just so consumed with hatred that it permeates their writing. For reasons that have baffled sane, normal people, Peyton Manning has been the target of some of the most intense negativity from sportswriters that one can imagine and for over 10 years. You can always spot a Peyton-hater. They use standards that are patently unfair. They make comparisons that have never been made for other athletes. They cherry pick statistics. They make Peyton the scapegoat for the failures of his coaches or teammates. And they denigrate him at every turn.

NBCSports has a good example of Peyton-hating here.
