Jason Whitlock ate his words - probably with a side of mayo

Columnist blogger Jason Whitlock of Fox Sports recently wrote that Peyton Manning is "toast". You could give him the benefit of the doubt - and assume that he was just hungry that day - if he hadn't later written that Manning's success versus the Raiders was "fools gold".
We took the huge douche to task over his comments.

It's only fair that we give him credit for admitting that he was wrong. Our Twitter friend @720beauCBS brought it to our attention that Whitlock's recent NFL column contained the confession "I was wrong".

Additionally, he picked the Broncos to go to the AFC title game:

"Manning’s arm magically got stronger. He looks great. I don’t mind being wrong. It’ll happen again. I’d love to know how and why Manning’s arm got stronger, and that’s not a sarcastic criticism. But we went from Manning’s arm being “it is what it is” to being better than what it was.

The AFC is weak. I can see Manning and the Broncos taking advantage and winning the AFC Championship. Right now I see the Texans and Broncos in the AFC title game."

It takes a big man to admit a mistake. Or, in Whitlock's case, an enormous man.
