That was a fantastic game. The last drive by the Colts was great to watch - it was gutsy to go on 4th down, and then to go for 2 points right at the end. Incredibly frustrating to watch them in the first half though, falling apart somewhat on the offence.

Peyton is an indoor Quarterback. That has been proven
time and again. He's 0-3 in sub-freezing games and snow games.

We'll see how he does in Denver next week.

The funny thing is that some people actually though Ryan Leaf was a better QB in that draft. Also, the Heisman dumbasses didn't think Manning was good enough to hold their trophy. They gave it to the ESPN-approved player, instead, and the Heisman lost a bunch of respect that it never will gain back.

Everyone in Tennessee knew all along how good Manning is and that he would do amazing things in the NFL.

Eli played so well today.

For all of you who do not regularly follow football....THERE ARE NO NEW RULES IN PLACE THIS YEAR THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ILLEGAL CONTACT ON A RECEIVER!

Every year, at the start of the year, officials and head coaches have meetings where officials will talk about the rules and certain rules that they will be paying more attention to. It happens every year.

If you beleive that there is some conspiracy to make Peyton into a hero, fine. But quite biatching about these NEW rules.

/geeez

i guess he got all the not sucking genes, and eli got all the sucking genes. you lost to the bunguls, go home and cry eli, go home and cry.

BTW, cincy was paying 8 bucks an hour to go "shovel" the stands yesterday. i got a little of that action but i didnt shovel just took the bunguls 8 bucks an hour for 4 hours and left.

I doubt the league is more intent on enforcing this rule (which if memory serves, was not on the books in '84... but I've been wrong before) in order to benefit one particular qb... More likely that the league wants an increase in scoring in general...

/no conspiracy theory about Manning... the man is the best qb in the game right now, trailed closely by Culpepper/Vick..
 
2004-12-26 05:07:51 PM
FredyCalhoun-

The rule was indeed on the books in '84 and was emphasised that year as well. I agree that Manning is a great QB and more scoring is better for the league......Not sure just how "great" Vick is yet. Lots of potential there, just hasn't quite realized it.
 
2004-12-26 05:08:08 PM
Baahston, your post shows you have no idea what you are talking about. The Colts most certainly are not winless in sub-freezing weather. In fact, I can think of at least 3 games they have won in freezing weather.

here is one; http://espn.go.com/nfl/columns/clayton_john/1466116.html

If you do a little research before you post you won't sound like such a tool
 
2004-12-26 05:09:59 PM
Whether Vick is "great" or not is debatable. But I think he might be the best in the NFC, and no team wants to play the Falcons in the playoffs..
 
2004-12-26 05:10:16 PM
Does anyone care? Manning Sucks.

On the topic of colts and what I dubbed-and an irrate Colts fan disagreed with- the "house that Peyton built" what is the consensus on the Colts building a retractable roof stadium? Big poosies who are doomed ala the Vikings??
 
2004-12-26 05:12:45 PM
Also, Mannings work ethic helps make him a media darling. He even stayed to play another season at Tennessee after he had graduated in three years and the NFL was waving big bucks at him. Contrast that to guys that leave after two or three years with no degree.

So, he is squeaky clean imagewise. That's why the NFL promotes him so hard.

I don't think the TD record is all that impressive considering the offensive talent he has around him. More impressive is the TD to INT ratio (close to 5 to 1)
This record is meaningless, especially considering that Manning (much like Favre) tends to choke come playoff time.

The media worship that has been heaped upon Manning, Favre, and Vick has got to stop.

I would take(as you said)Culpepper over Vick as well as McNabb and Farve. As far as teams wanting to play them, I am sure KC would love another chance.....of course if they were in the playoffs...lol. I have to relish any of the few victories my team has had.
 
2004-12-26 05:15:10 PM
So Luke McCown only needs to average 26 TDs per game to tie him this year?

No sweat...

The Colts are 0-3 in their last 3 subfreezing games!
 
2004-12-26 05:17:52 PM
What about the records the Chargers broke? Manning is ok, something about him irks me. Gotta hand it to the Chargers for putting on a good game tough.
 
2004-12-26 05:18:27 PM
How many TD passes where under 5 yds this year? Anybody have that stat?
 
2004-12-26 05:18:50 PM
"So, he is squeaky clean imagewise. That's why the NFL promotes him so hard."

Squeaky clean = white.

That is all.
 
2004-12-26 05:18:51 PM
Yeah,
I cant imagine why the NFL would want to promote a hard-working, clean-cut, well-spoken guy who sets TD records. Shame on them for even showing him on TV.

/Dripping
 
2004-12-26 05:19:07 PM
What irks me is how he always whines to the refs. And how he led a an 18 point comeback against the Bolts.
 
2004-12-26 05:19:35 PM
Yeah, now he can go after another Marino record- most personal records without winning a Superbowl.

I hope Eli ultimately ends up outshining him.
 
2004-12-26 05:21:54 PM
Big freaking deal, everyone loses everyonce in a while. The point is that they CAN win in cold weather, not that they ALWAYS win in cold weather. The Packers don't always win in cold weather... if they lose 3 in a row in sub-freezing temps does that mean they can never again win in cold weather? Of course not.

/doesn't understand why some people refuse to admit that the Colts are one of the best teams in the NFL, and has just as much chance to win the Super Bowl as anyone
 
2004-12-26 05:22:09 PM
Three years at Tennessee and he NEVER beat the GATORS!!
HAHAHAHA!!!
Poor ol Rocky Top!!
 
2004-12-26 05:23:49 PM
Squeaky clean = white

Yeah, that's why the NFL made Bill Romanowski a star.
 
2004-12-26 05:25:04 PM
They also made Reggie White a star. Coincidence?
 
2004-12-26 05:25:53 PM
oh yea. RW was pretty good too, but.....
 
2004-12-26 05:27:09 PM
"when Manning & Co. go to the Super Bowl, I hope to see all you people saying one and done making new excuses on why the Colts aren't the great team they truly are"

How are the Colts a "great team?" They certainly have as good a chance to go to the superbowl as anyone else (except the Steelers and Pats, who incidentally are both in the AFC and will have byes, most likely).

Anyway, do we think of the 1999 Falcons as a "great team?" Or last year's Panther's? And they won their division championship.
 
2004-12-26 05:29:19 PM
Next year's "rule of emphasis" would probably be that all stadiums will be indoors and on turf.
 
2004-12-26 05:29:57 PM
I like when Peyton's one-dimensional "aw shucks I like to throw the ball far to the WRs" passing game gets completely confounded by the Patriots time and time again...

I so hope they meet up in the playoffs so Peyton gets embarassed again
 
2004-12-26 05:30:54 PM
Peyton has been the hugest stud on my fantasy team this year. By the end of the day, I should be this year's champ, and for that I am a fan.

The Colts are a great team because they have the #1 offense in football. The Colts are a great team because they have the best O line in football. The Colts are a great team because they have the number 2 Rusher in football. The Colts are a great team because they are the only ones to ever have 3 recievers with 10 td's or more. The Colts are a great team because the have the most accurate kicker in football history. I could go on and on.

And if we win next week and NE loses then we get #2 seed, with a first round bye and home field througout the playoffs.

/you asked
//thanks Miami for beating NE last week
 
2004-12-26 05:34:05 PM
[i]2004-12-26 05:29:57 PM knuckleball [/i]

Which is why Stockley (a slot reciever) has 10 td's right?

I will give you the fact that we can't seem to beat NE for some reason.

Allow me to dumb it down for ya.

The Peyton led Colts are 0-3 in their last
snow or subfreezing games!

And if you like that cake heres the frosting
Colts defense ranks 28 in total defense not
exactly playoff caliber.
 
2004-12-26 05:37:45 PM
Didnt even read the comments..

But man, that was awesome. Im the only guy in the building, at work right now (I do computer operations at a hospitals datacenter) and the phone didnt ring for a whole 10 minute span.. which was the exact time that that drive occured.

awesome!

Squeaky clean = white.

The leaque enjoys promoting a non-asshole, non-showboat that is refeshingly free of arrests and crimes committed. Also, he's a pretty good QB.

That is all.

You forgot to mention the defense. All great teams have a good def--- Oh, that's right! They have among the worst defenses in the league! Therefore, they are a good, not great, team.
 
2004-12-26 05:38:55 PM
Manning's the bomb, but he also has a G R E A T Offensive Line that got snubbed again this year wrt the Pro Bowl. To have the three 1000-yard receivers (also with at least 10 TD's each), the league's second leading rusher (first for now?), and Manning having the year that he is - does no one think the linemen might be a little better than *yawn* "ok"...

with a first round bye and home field througout the playoffs.

Slow down there, Sparky. Only the 1 seed is guaranteed homefield advantage for the whole playoffs...and that seed is already sewn up. If the Colts somehow end up with the 2 seed, they only get homefield if Pittsburgh loses.

Kansas City Chiefs has the number one offense.

But don't let facts get in the way of your posts.

420911:

"Some reason" - Peyton is completely one-dimensional, he can't think on his feet when faced with a creative defense.

Sorry for the glaring error of using the label "WR" to refer to receivers...but if we're going to split hairs, it's Stokely, not Stockely

Records will continue to be broken as athletes continue to use the newest steroids.

And I still say these guys don't do anything that's worth million-dollar contracts.
 
2004-12-26 05:42:37 PM
I should add, that I respect Peyton mainly for his sportsmanship and love for the game, more so than his statistics. Heres a guy, in a sport where guys love to draw attention to themselves, and he doesnt even react after the throw. just move on and take care of business. Taking the kneel last week against the ravens? that was classy, too.
 
2004-12-26 05:43:36 PM
Records will continue to be broken as athletes continue to use the newest steroids.

This statement might be true in some cases, but I fail to see how it's at all relevant to a discussion about Peyton Manning.
