That might be the best ESPN article I've ever read.  Thanks subby

Peyton's center can no longer enjoy buttsecks unless the guy behind him yells "Omaha!" on each thrust?

Should have included the classic story of Matt Hasselbeck's center.

Then I was like, 'Heck, it's only Hasselbeck-I'll stay in the game.'

They both give good reacharounds?

And what is it with "Omaha" anyway?  Is it simply "Get ready, Imma call an audible!" or is it designed to hypnotize the defence by having him wonder why he always shouts "Omaha"?

Agreed.

The wet-ball drill was one of these annoying Peyton preparations. They'd dunk footballs in five-gallon buckets, and the ball would get heavy and hard to handle. Saturday was wet and annoyed; Manning was trying to figure out how to hold the wet ball and adjust to its weight.  It was just another day in the life of Peyton's center. That Sunday, the Colts beat the Chicago Bears 29-17 in Super Bowl XLI in Miami. It rained continuously that night.

Dammit.

Sad that there are only a few comments here. I watched the damned pro bowl last year for exactly what they did with Saturday and Manning.  I think Dr Z would be proud.

The wet ball drill based on predicted weather just seems like good prep. Interesting article. Also having twelve years together does seem like it would really help you to communicate faster and make more use of that 25 (?) second play clock. That would be a nice advantage.
