Eli Manning: Peyton stole 'Omaha'

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

Peyton Manning is the worst. Eli says his older brother stole the "Omaha" line-of-scrimmage call, and has profited from it ever since.

Peyton Manning, giving big brothers a bad name ever since 1981. I might've jacked some candy or something from my younger bro back in the day, but something as visible as the Mannings' famous "Omaha" line-of-scrimmage call? Ridiculous.

In an interview with Huff Post Live, Eli says he thinks Peyton stole the whole thing from him. Big bro's been in the league since 1998 and still, apparently, needs a leg-up to catch up to Eli's two Super Bowl rings. Must be tough, Peyton.

"I think he stole it. It's a word we've used a lot. I think it means a similar thing there in Denver. It's okay we're always trying to help each other out. I've taken some plays and some tips from Peyton over the years," Eli told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill on Wednesday.

You can watch the full clip here, and the full interview below. It's interesting and might be worth your time.

One question. How did Hill come up with 'Baghdad' as a possible replacement for 'Omaha?'
