I’m good with that. Manning is known as a prankster, but said his teammates have grown wary, noting that the password on Beckham’s phone “isn’t 1313 anymore,” negating his famous change the language on the phone trick.“I have to regroup and find a new system,” he said.“You’ve got to have fun with them and connect with them. There’s times where it is serious and you’re talking ball, they always know by the way I approach them whether I have something serious to talk about, a route or a concept or something. There’s (also) times where we get to goof off and kind of get to know the lighter side of them.”Which brings us back to Manning and the dancing.“There’s a lot of dancing going on [in the locker room], a lot of dancing, which, I find very curious Cheap Landon Collins Jersey (http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-landon-collins-jersey) ,” Manning said. “The music, I miss out on some of the music and social media, some of the things they’re on.
