Decillion: The odds of Manning successfully navigating an NFL season are 3,720 to 1


Never tell me the odds!

FunkyBlue: I did love Troy was screwing with Peyton. Peyton would spot Troy, audible, spot Troy again, audible, spot Troy again, call time out.


Even better was watching him get out of position and then getting burned for a 73 yard touchdown

JohnBigBootay: Decillion: The odds of Manning successfully navigating an NFL season are 3,720 to 1

These kinds of comments mystify me. Now one the one hand, the odds of ANY NFL qb playing the whole season are questionable. In that regard the comment is fine. But on this one player in particular he went from never missing a a game - ever in his pro career - to missing one whole season. And since the injury the medical experts say he is no more or less prone to that same injury than any other qb in the league. Now if you wanna question him because of his position or his age, fine. But his prior injury is a non-factor and his durability speaks for itself - he's been out for injury exactly once. Sure, it lasted the whole season but once is once.

Talent matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my talent, do you? Hmm? Hmm! And well you should not. For my ally is the Jesus, and a powerful ally he is. He creates life, makes it grow. His love surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Jesus around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

I wish Peyton Manning would stop. Just stop. Every time I hear his name I think of Preston Manning, former leader of the Reform Party (I love that word Refooooorm! as the Royal Canadian Air Farce parodied him).

Also, will somebody please invite Jesse James to play poker already?

Hollywood has a point with its policy of not allowing two actors to have the same name. It's farking annoying. Bad enough you have to deal with John Wayne Gacy, let alone Jesse James.

Crudbucket: stpickrell: free_waffles: The real question is will Peyton be able to play in the open air during a Denver winter.

Like the playing surface is covered with ice or the such?

Your offense will freeze before you hit the first down marker!



Then he'll see you in New England...in the playoffs.

Last one.

Your father was seduced by the Dark Side of Football. He ceased to be Archie and became Darth Manning. When that happened, the good man who was your father never won a super bowl. So what I told you was true; from a certain point of view.

Your faith in the AFC West is yours.

Hokey offenses and ancient quarterbacks are no match for a good defense at your side, kid.

Yeah, and the team with one of the worst defenses in the AFC made the Super Bowl last year. Not sure your point.

Jeesh. Favoriting you as "humorless"


Being that there are so many that will say that a good defense will always beat a good offense, it is hard to see that was a joke. My bad.

Steelers don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Jared Allen is known to do that.

FunkyBlue: I'm a Steelers fan and I have to say, they played well and we played not that great. Especially in the last 2 minutes where Ben got sacked 3 out of 4 downs. Honestly, I know they changed up the O-Line this year, but Ben does need some time to throw the ball. 1 second form the snap is too fast for any QB to ditch the ball for any good yardage and the offensive line just crumbled around him in less than 1. I don't think Ben's ankle is doing even 80% again this year and all it's going to take is one intential ankle grab for a sack and he's a sitting target for the rest of the year (like last year). I think this may be Ben's last year unless he gets that ankle working like it should be. I was calling for Ben to go last year because of it. It's not getting any better and his ability to run and dodge out of tackles is what made him a threat. Not hopping three steps and hoping someone is open.

I did love Troy was screwing with Peyton. Peyton would spot Troy, audible, spot Troy again, audible, spot Troy again, call time out.

Troy has to be one of the most fun guys to watch play. "Hang on, someone just jumped over the line and sacked the QB. Oh, it was number 43." I think he's getting close to having more QB sacks than half the Defensive line.


Clearly a Steelers fan. The Steelers played well last night...you just can't admit that they got beat fair and square? Ben was mobile and played REALLY well, yes the protection was suspect for the most part, but the Broncos do have two elite pass rushers, and Derek Wolfe is rapidly turning into a stud interior lineman.

Polamalu was getting screwed with as much as he was screwing. Manning saw what he was trying to do and called his bluff on several occasions. The whole sequence at the goal line was a perfect example of Manning getting Polamalu to show his hand. He didn't take that time out because he was rattled or unsure, he took it because he knew they didn't have a good matchup for the defensive alignment the Steelers had on the play. That's the beauty of having a smart QB.

In the end, Tomlin said it best. They had a game plan, they executed it, and it wasn't enough. That's it. No excuses. It IS possible that the Steelers weren't the better team last night, as hard as that is to accept.

No! The Steelers are peaceful! We have no weapons, you can't possibly...
[impatiently] You would prefer another target, a Wide Receiver? Then name the player! I grow tired of asking this so it will be the last time: *Where* is the Wide Receiver?
...Heinz Field. They're on Heinz Field.
There. You see, Lord Payton, she can be reasonable. Continue with the operation; you may play when ready.
WHAT?
You're far too trusting. Heinz Field is too remote to make an effective demonstration - but don't worry; we will deal with your AFC friends soon enough.
