It was a direct order from John Fox.
Fox isn't going to throw Manning under the bus now, but I thought that Manning can overrule any call, and usually does. Manning said that he called for the run on 3rd and 7. I don't think anyone asked PM about taking a knee, but I think that the widespread assumption that it was Fox's call is dubious. If Fox were to now say "That was what Peyton wanted" then obviously there would be a firestorm. Fox may be taking the bullet.
