JusticeandIndependence: HaywoodJablonski: Let the balding, stat-padding midget have his silly record if it keeps him happy. He and his home dome brethren can relive those memories once they lose on the road. As usual.

6'0" is a midget now?  Wow, you must be really tall.


He's 6' in his cleats.

And yes, I find that short, especially among the fraternity of NFL QBs - most of whom are 6'3-6'6.

// 6'4
// you people are so petty...and tiny

No, they won't touch it. They never went back and reviewed those things for all the other record seasons either. Just a historical footnote for the fools who think Peyton isn't one of the best QBs ever.
 
2013-12-31 10:41:42 AM  
Yeah, too bad he went 25 for 28 with four touchdowns in the first half.

If only he'd struggled more then he might've played in the second half and left no doubt about the record.

JusticeandIndependence: stir22: anyone remember that running back from the falcons back in the 70's?  iirc, two years in a row he came soooo close to a thousand yard season...had 995, then 997, once due to something like this when they took yardage away.  finally, the next year, he got his 1,000 yard season.

/14 game season
//yeah, i'm old

Dave Hampton.  995 in 1972, 997 in 1973

steamingpile: HotWingAgenda: That's a pretty specious argument, there. I'm not buying it.

Especially since he was benched the second half, the writer is a moron and if the NFL does take it away I would hate to be an NFL defensive coordinator in the playoffs and next year too.

Peyton seems to be the kind who gets calm when he's mad and thats not a good thing.


There's a video floating around where he completely loses his shiat on the sideline and screams at Jeff Saturday to "stop calling the farking plays!"  Should be easy enough to Google.

I like the one where his right tackle, I believe, blows a block, and you can hear Peyton yell as he's scrambling to the sideline: "COME ON _______!"

It was Donald Brown. I still hear "Dammit Donald!" in my head every time his name is mentioned.

I'm 6'0" and I've met Brees. He's 5'10" at most.

There ya go.  I loved that he was lecturing his lineman while he was in the process of escaping the pressure.


Peyton is somebody who I never understood the hate for.  He is an awesome QB to watch and seems like a pretty nice guy.  He's also a pretty good actor (Papa John's aside).

Stat readjustments after a game happen all the time.  A guy in our FFL last year had one of his wins switched to a loss after a pass was readjusted into a lateral.

That being said, I don't think they'll readjust this one ... although the video evidence is rather clear.

VvonderJesus: "Quit calling the f*cking plays"


I love Peyton's film breakdown: "I was outmatched in every way - size, intensity..."

// and that other lineman looks like he might deck Ol' Sixhead
 
2013-12-31 11:49:27 AM  
If this was week one with no record on the line, would they adjust it? If yes, then they still should. If no, then they shouldn't.

As I understand, it is the former and this adjustment occurs all the time.

That said, it would be a tough decision for the person to make as you are going to catch a ton of flak either way, but a lot more from adjusting it.

They should strip Michael Strahan's sack record because Brett Favre laid down for him.
 
2013-12-31 12:08:00 PM  
im just glad he took back the TD record from Brady.  most of Marino's old records finally fell and the yardage record was one that held up for almost 30 years.  now that it's down i dont have any real affinity for Peyton to own that one plus it was Brees who initially took it.  Marino's records were the few things i held onto since he never got his ring and now theyre gone too.  He was always my favorite in the 80s.
 
2013-12-31 12:09:33 PM  
Not quite indisputable evidence. There is definitely a solid argument for the parallax effect. Regardless, I'm sure Manning is after a Rings, not records. Amirite, Marino?

God dammit Donald is now my go-to phrase of exasperation.
 
2013-12-31 12:29:55 PM  
I don't care either way, but it's clear Manning would have stayed in and accomplished the goal if he felt like he wasn't going to get those 7 yards. So let him keep it.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: As a Bronco fan, I say take the record away. Gives him something to play for, next year.


I don't really mind Peyton these days.  He seems like a stand up guy...but I really really really hate Eli.

That being said, even if he kept the record...if he doesn't get a ring, he'll still have the biggest chip on his shoulder of any NFL player in the league next year, and still play lights out.

Something tells me that Broncos fans will not be wanting that to be the chip on his shoulder next year.

If the NFL takes this record away from Manning, I predict the highest scoring Super Bowl ever. This is gonna be AWESOME!

SilentStrider: Nabb1: As much as I'd like to see Drew keep the record, I doubt he wants it back like this.

still, the NFL should make sure they get it right. they have their integrity to cons...

wow, i couldn't even type that with a straight face.


What's next actually giving the 1925 championship to Pottsville?
 
2013-12-31 03:03:21 PM  
yeah in the nfl takes away manning's record the derp is gonna be epic.

If Marino played with today's rules the record would probably be 8,327 and he'd probably have a couple rings to boot.

marino had a cool conversation with peyton before sunday's game.  peyton was pretty gracious in acknowledging how different the game is today.  all things considering records really hold different meanings for new rules and culture shifts in the game.

teto85: Won't matter if he gets a ring.

He's already got a ring. One ring only
