As tims4wins said, their public blowup started after the Colts were blown out by the Jets in the 02-03 playoffs, when Vanderjagt called out Peyton for being lazy and a bad leader, and Peyton responded by calling him an idiot kicker at the Pro Bowl. And then it was brought up quite a bit after Vanderjagt missed the game-tying field goal against the Steelers in the 05-06 playoffs.Was that Vanderjagt FG attempt the one that Manning threw him under the bus for? I don't think it was, but watching that sack by McGinest reminds me of what a TERRIBLE, unforgivable job Peyton did there - poor awareness before and/or AFTER the snap.
