Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning understandably likes the home crowd to be quiet so he can make play calls at the line of scrimmage.

However, the Broncos fans in attendance for Thursday night's game against the San Diego Chargers were too fired up in the fourth quarter, with Denver leading 35-21 and two minutes left. Manning kept signaling for the crowd to quiet down, but it took the fans a while to figure it outand all Peyton could do was shake his head:

Turns out, it wasn't just the fans Manning had an issue with. After the game, he took the scoreboard operator to task:

#Broncos Peyton Manning: "I’ve got a problem with our scoreboard operator. He’s playing music, showing players dance when we have the ball.”

The 6-1 Broncos won 35-21, but Manning is a perfectionist, so he tends to get a little worked up even when his team has a comfortable lead.
