OMAHA, NEB., the city that gave us Bob Gibson, Gale Sayers and Warren Buffet, was trending during the nationally televised Broncos-Chargers game thanks to Denver quarterback Peyton Manning.
Manning has a penchant for yelling "Omaha" during his snap count - something he did 44 times during Sunday's game.
Ron Jaworski, Trent Dilfer and Tim Hasselbeck discussed the use of the word on ESPN yesterday. The ex-quarterbacks explained that it can have various meanings. On some teams it means kill the play called in the huddle and listen for an audible. On others, it follows a long string of "gibberish" commands and indicates the QB is about to call for the snap.
