East Rutherford, N.J. (CBS SEATTLE) – The Denver Broncos scored only one time and turned the ball over four times against the Seattle Seahawks on Super Bowl Sunday, but Peyton Manning is insulted his team’s performance could be called embarrassing.

Speaking with reporters at MetLife Stadium after the Broncos’ 43-8 Super Bowl loss on Sunday, a reporter called the performance “embarrassing,” which offended Manning.

“It’s not embarrassing at all, I would never use that word,” replied a visibly annoyed Manning. “There’s a lot of professional football players in that room, in the locker room, that put in a lot of hard work and effort into being here and into playing in that game.”

“The word ‘embarrassing’ is an insulting word, to tell you the truth.”

Manning is now 1-2 in career Super Bowl appearances, with the five-time MVP quarterback taking the Indianapolis Colts to the big game twice before. Manning broke the NFL’s single-season passing records this season with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns, previously held by Saints quarterback Drew Brees and the Patriots’ Tom Brady, respectively.

Unable to cap the record-breaking season with a Super Bowl win, Manning called the game result “a difficult pill to swallow.”

“Obviously it’s a disappointing locker room in there, guys are disappointed, guys put a lot into this season, guys put a lot into these past two weeks to really lay it all out there so when you come up short like this, it is disappointing.”
