Peyton Manning HOF speech: Bruce Arians’ priceless response to Tom Brady getting booed in Canton


Tom Brady had some fun with the fans in attendance when Peyton Manning mentioned him in his Hall of Fame enshrinement speech. Brady was booed loudly by the capacity crowd when Manning mentioned him as his “good friend.”

Before Manning could even get the joke in, the fans showered Brady with boos. 

“Speaking of rivals, my good friend Tom Brady is here tonight,” Manning said. “And by the time he is inducted, in his first year of eligibility in the year 2035, he’ll only have time to post his acceptance speech on his Instagram account.” 

Bruce Arians chuckled over the Brady booing party when asked about it Monday. His response was priceless. 

“Look at who was there – Denver, Indianapolis, Steelers,” Arians said. “He got booed, hell yeah he got booed.”

Brady is 28-12 against the Colts, Steelers, and Broncos in his career — and is 3-0 against Pittsburgh and 2-1 against Indianapolis in the AFC Championship Game. Brady has never beaten Denver in the AFC Championship Game, going 0-2 against Manning. Brady was only 2-3 against Manning in the playoffs — with Manning winning the last three meetings. 

Denver had Steve Atwater and John Lynch going into the Hall of Fame, while Pittsburgh had Donnie Shell, Troy Polamalu, Alan Faneca and Bill Cowher getting enshrined. Indianapolis had Manning and Edgerrin James going into Canton, so their fan bases were well-represented — as Arians pointed out. 

Brady still has seven Super Bowl titles, or three more than the Steelers, Colts, and Broncos have combined since he entered the league. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback — and current Super Bowl champion — gets the last laugh.
