He was also repeatedly asked about his "legacy," something he said he’s heard about since he was 25.
"I’m not sure you can have a legacy when you’re 25 years old. Even 37," Manning said. "I’d like to have to be, like, 70 to have a legacy. I’m not even 100 percent sure what the word even means."
CHARMING SHERMAN: No wild outbursts here.
After Sherman’s angry 20-second rant after the NFC championship game sparked a national debate over sportsmanship and racial attitudes, the Seattle cornerback was funny, accommodating and didn’t raise his voice except to make sure reporters heard him.
He also praised his teammates — and the Denver Broncos.
"People think I’m a loudmouth, an angry guy," Sherman said. "That’s a big misconception."
But he’s still a chatterbox. He began his session a few minutes before he even had to, and had to be pulled away by an NFL official after answering a few more questions past his 60-minute requirement.
"I could do this all day," he said. "Thanks, y’all."
HEALTH UPDATES: Seattle wide receiver Percy Harvin and Denver kicker Matt Prater are both ready to go for Sunday.
Harvin, who has yet to play a full game while healthy this season, returned to practice last Wednesday after passing the NFL’s concussion protocol following a head injury suffered in Seattle’s NFC divisional playoff game against New Orleans.
"I am absolutely playing," he said without hesitation.
Prater missed practices from last Thursday through Saturday with flu-like symptoms. He kicked Monday for the first time since the AFC championship game.
"I’m feeling a lot better and I should be fine Sunday," Prater said. "I mean, I wasn’t dying."
