320 Pound Quarterback Scrambles Better Than Peyton Manning

320 Pound Quarterback Scrambles Better Than Peyton Manning

If you’ve never heard of Jared Lorenzen, don’t feel bad. He’s a quarterback for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League, which is equivalent to your local semi-pro hockey/soccer (or football for you Europeans) league where guys only make somewhere between $50-$200 per week.

Jared was once upon a time the backup quarterback for the New York Giants during their Superbowl XLII victory season. But his NFL experience is not what has him in the news these days.

Jared recently became a viral hit because of this Vine displaying his scrambling ability at quarterback, at 320 lbs, and then throwing for a first down in his debut in the CIFL.


With all this coming to light shortly after Peyton Manning repeatedly could not make plays under pressure in the Superbowl you can imagine the fun this was on Twitter.

Jared’s final stat line for the game was 23/37 passing with 3 TD’s. America.
