Everyone loves Peyton Manning, even those who were previously crushed by his passing prowess and amazing leadership. 

When fans suffer, they hope the athletes they worship suffer as well, but that's not how things work. Life goes on, and sometimes you just have to get a bro's autograph. 

KCTV-5 (h/t BuzzFeed) in Kansas City reports on the latest loss from the Chiefs, this time against the 8-3 Denver Broncos. 

Typically, when your team owns just one win, the visiting squad tends to get more media hype, even in your hometown. So, it's not surprising the report centered on Peyton Manning.

What's shocking is Jamaal Charles was seen getting his autograph, and Dwayne Bowe even took a picture with him. You can catch the video here

BuzzFeed managed to get some wonderful images from the video as well. 

From there, we can expect a sleeping mass in Kansas City to awake just long enough to be slightly annoyed from these proceedings. 

I understand. 

Your team is 1-10, and two of your star players just acted like teenage girls meeting Justin Bieber for the first time. 

Relax, because none of this matters in the grand scheme of things. Soccer players exchange jerseys; opposing players share meals together after games. 

This stuff occurs after the over-hyped frenzy that is your local football coverage. Live with it. 

I agree this is hard to stomach, but there is a bigger question at hand. What is a grown man doing getting an autograph?

Just when you thought the Chiefs season couldn't get any worse, Peyton Manning comes to town and steals the heart of the Kansas City locker room.
