    Peyton is loved and adored by his loving media friends, and made the narrative of Super Bowl 50 about him, not the barroom brawling Von Miller, an old-school linebacker, who was the decisive factor in giving Denver it’s third Lombardi. No, Prince Peyton is the face of the NFL. We cannot let one of his supporting cast disrupt the landscape of the fantasy narrative.

    This second ring for Manning is very reminiscent of his SBXLI, when Indy played a lucky Chicago Bears team, with the glass jawed Rex Grossman under center. In the two Super Bowls he’s “won”, he has only one TD pass in the previous “win”.

    In closing, this last game was no classic. It was boring, both offenses sucked, the defenses most of the time were above average, and was decided by two fumbles by Cam Newton, courtesy of Mr. Miller, a new generation of gridiron bruiser. And I’m a Chiefs fan.

    Brilliant opine, Steve.

    This WAS a great game, albeit all about defenses: 1 very good and 1 great. Football guys who played the game appreciate the defensive dominance. I’m sure all these fantasy boys hated it.

    One thing you should also point out, when the Colts lost to the Saints, Manning sulked off the field without congratulating Drew Brees or Sean Payton and was very terse in his post-game presser. Sore loser or whiny bitch?

    Welcome home Czabe. For me Manning has been easy to see through, I always distrust a guy that “seems” perfect. I know the guy is a gritty competitor and has a skill set almost second to none and that earns my respect. However, I cannot count a long line of former teammates that have much to say that contradict the public persona Manning has cultivated as just sour grapes. It came home for me when both Freeney and Mathis basically said the same thing about his behavior in practice. I know Mathis held his tongue longer than Freeney did, but in that first game against his former QB he let it out before the game and then again during. Watching that strip-sack and the explosion of emotion afterward spoke volumes and I’m sure many if not all of his former teammates felt the same as Mathis at that moment.

    Great article and please do not let the HGH story fade away, it is our deflate gate this year and its a long haul until September.
