Kyle Boller, the Ice Cream Man

Story of the year so far, from Jim Thomas: Kyle Boller’s job in practice this week is to imitate Peyton Manning, in all his stomping, flapping glory. He even simulates the audible play calls — except he doesn’t know the Colts’ terminology.

“Other than some of the names he’s yelling out — ‘Ice cream! Boller! Boller!’ — and all those type of things, he’s actually done a great job for us,” defensive coordinator Ken Flajole said, smiling.

Flajole is in his fourth decade as either an NFL or college coach. Has he ever heard a quarterback yell “Ice cream!” at the line of scrimmage?

“Not as many flavors as Kyle has,” Flajole said.
