Fumblr is the fake blogging platform that examines the NFL through invented memes. It runs every Wednesday. All animated GIFs via Kissing Suzy Kolber.
In early December, I wrote a lengthy ode to Manningface, and since then the phenomenon hasn't appeared in this space. This is partly the fault of the Broncos, who closed the season with an 11-game winning streak, and partly a lack of due diligence from the author, who eased up on the schadenfreude during the Giants' late-season swoon.
So, with an added appreciation for the relative rareness of Manningface, let's take one last walk with Peyton before the season comes to a close.

Because CBS aired two games during the divisional playoff weekend, the network's B-team of Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf called Saturday's epic double-overtime game in Denver, giving viewers some four-plus hours of Dierdorf's color commentary. It was, in the words of SB Nation's Bobby Big Wheel, "like having your steak paired with toilet wine."
How bad is Dierdorf? Well, in the middle of a double-overtime see-saw playoff battle, I was more intent on expanding Jon Bois' twitter meme than I was on watching the game:

I'm not even sure I remember what I did for fun before Twitter existed.
I mean, it's no David Akers Dance Party, but I appreciate a little extra funk in the possession signal. Referees should adopt this.
No. Not in New York, not in Jacksonville, not even in the CFL. Nobody wants PROVEN PLAYOFF WINNER Tim Tebow. It's marvelous.
