SanFranDenver, you will be burned at the stake.

As for the game that determines who gets to keep the Super Bowl trophy warm until the Broncos win it next year, I'm absolutely pulling for the Bears. I don't want to have to eat crow on all my "Peyton Manning will never win a Super Bowl" talk; I also want to hear every NFL analyst on the planet have to shut up and stop knobbing him for a moment when they realize he just lost to Rex Grossman.

It could happen.

There was one game (I can't remember when exactly) where the Colts were way ahead, and it was late in the fourth quarter, and the opposing team messed up, and Manning could have just run the ball into the endzone and run up the score, but instead he took a knee and let the clock run out. I always thought he was pretty cool since then.

That doesn't erase the dozens of games in which Manning kept throwing for the endzone even when his team was up 20 or 30 points. Look it up. There were a bunch of games in 2004, when he set the single-season TD record, in which his team was scoring in the 40's while the other team was in the teens, and he's throwing for 4, 5, 6 touchdowns. Six fucking touchdowns, against the Lions, on Thanksgiving, on a day when the Lions only scored 3 field goals. Real classy guy. That was the day where I began to hate him, and I don't even like the fucking Lions.

His records will forever reek of chasing, and that's why he deserves to die with no rings on his fingers.

So what? Should a team with a great lead start taking knees? Or just end the game when there's a massive point differential?
If anything going for the end-zone gave the Lions plenty of chances for interceptions.
Don't hate on a guy for wanting to be the best at what he does, it's why he gets paid what he does.

No, a team with a lead should run the ball, protect its lead, and not try to show up a clearly inferior team. Not to mention the potential injury risks to your QB... I wish the Lions (or any other team that got blown out by the Colts that season) would have unleashed an all-out blitz and thrown Peyton on his ass. I completely agree with schoolio's statements. And your point of "going for the end-zone gave the Lions plenty of chances for interceptions" is just not right. I don't want to come across as being mean, but that statement sounds baseless and uninformed.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Let's keep in mind, Peyton Manning's running back in 2004 was Edgerrin James, who (at least before he got to the Cardinals) was one of the absolute best rushers in the league. Peyton absolutely did not need to pad his stats the way he did; it helped his team in no way other than to get media coverage for his numbers.

Also, I will go ahead and admit that part of the reason I despite the Colts so much is that they've tormented my team (the almighty Broncos) so much in recent years. But I also feel like they're a supremely overrated bunch with a mysteriously-adored quarterback that I find the definition of hateable - I mean, sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who notices all his sideline temper-tantrums anytime any of his teammates botches a play or they have to punt. Every time they get exposed, he's over there making that trademark whiny face, slapping his thigh pads, yelling at everyone else. When they lose big games (like Pittsburgh last year), he throws his line under the bus, or starts a press conference feud with his place kicker....and this is the guy that is America's football darling? There's a line around the block to lick this guy's taint?

And in this 2006 NFL season - which has been one of the flat-out wackiest in recent memory - I can see no more perfect an ending than the Bears, a team from the clearly-inferior NFC, taking home the title.

Gabe, I think you and I are in complete agreement on every aspect of Manning/the Colts here. In my mind, THE defining moment of Manning's career was throwing his O-Line under the bus after that loss... That same O-line protected his ass every Sunday, gave him time to put up his crazy numbers (even his "off" years are statistically exceptional), and all this when opposing defensive game plans were "Blitz, blitz, blitz until someone rips Manning's head off". It was a petty act by a prima donna, king of the hill douche. And yes, the ball licking that surrounds Manning is completely and utterly inexplicable to me. I hate him as a commercial "actor" and absolutely despise him as an athlete.

The Peyton Manning Award for Worst Performance in a Playoff Game
With apologies to Tom Brady, who was uncharacteristically sloppy for two straight weeks and made the single-worst throw of his career (the pick to Champ Bailey), I still think Manning gets this award for his Tony Eason impersonation against the Steelers. More than everything else, quarterbacks need to come through in the clutch, carry themselves like the coolest guys on the field, inspire confidence in their teammates (no matter how bleak the situation), respect the coach's decisions and be quality teammates even in the face of adversity. Manning did none of these things on Sunday. And I'm not sure even A-Rod would have muttered the "I'm trying to be a good teammate" line. Some guys rise to the occasion in big games, some guys shrink from the occasion. He's one of the shrinkers. But if you're playing a 2-10 Lions team on Thanksgiving with three days to prepare, he's your guy.



OK, me now: Remember, he waved the punting unit off during that game on a 4th and 2 (the second time that season that he had directly disobeyed Dungy, who happens to be his coach). And the subsequent press conference was a train wreck in terms of Peyton's already low likeability. The "I'm trying to be a good teammate" statement, followed by a 3-4 minute stretch of him throwing his O-Line under the bus was just plain wrong. Can you imagine Joe Montana, John Elway or even Tom Brady doing something like that? You address issues like that behind closed doors, not in front of the worldwide media. And before anyone plays the "he was frustrated immediately following a loss" card, remember that his interview was a full 30-40 minutes after the game ended. He had already gone into the locker room, changed clothes, had ample time to take out his frustrations with the linemen. I've got money wagered on the Colts to win the Super Bowl, but I hope it's Jim Sorgi throwing the game winning TD for the Colts after Manning gets his body completely mangled by Ogunleye or Urlacher.

Peyton Manning Overjoyed His Commercials Will Finally Appear In Super Bowl
February 1, 2007 | Issue 43•05

INDIANAPOLIS—Colts quarterback Peyton Manning took a moment during Super Bowl Media Day Tuesday to acknowledge his "deep, abiding joy and pride" that, after many years of attempting to make his presence felt on advertising's biggest stage, his commercials would finally be coming to the Super Bowl. "There's no greater honor for a major player in the endorsement game than to get to the Super Bowl," said Manning, a three-time AdWeek MVP who is attempting to prove once and for all that he can land the big campaign. "My dad was a great pitchman, but he never got here. People said I would never get here. But on Super Bowl Sunday, Sprint, DirecTV, MasterCard, Sony and I plan to prove them all wrong. I guarantee it." Manning will also be playing quarterback for the Colts during the game, although he is not expected to be televised nearly as much in that capacity.
