Martha Stewart is coming out swingin' in defense of Peyton Manning ... telling TMZ Sports he did a "good job" in the Super Bowl ... and kept his composure when his team imploded.

Stewart was leaving The London Hotel in NYC when she went off about the Super Bowl -- explaining that she not only watched the game, but she HATED IT because it was so mismatched.

But when we asked about Peyton Manning ... Stewart made it clear she had his back -- saying, "He held it together. He could've cracked. He didn't."

But the ultimate compliment ... Stewart added, "He's a nice man."

She's right. Plus he didn't play all that bad...the interceptions were because his blockers weren't doing their jobs and got too close and tipped the ball. I dont understand why people are saying he played terrible.

He did not play like the Peyton i'm used to seeing. He played extremely safe & cautious the whole game as if he was not down by 4 touchdowns! Idk if nightmares of his neck injury crept back but usually when its crunch time Peyton knows how to win a game, or at least get back in it.

It's funny when people blame a quarterback for a team losing like he's the only one playing the game. The Seahawks defense was just much better than the Broncos defense. Manning didn't lose that game for his team as much as the Seahawks just showed how much better they were.
