He was valuable.

And no, I'm not going to click on a PFM link.

I doubt it since he was clearly the MVP of the league this year. But hey if I was an idiot and thought his Super Bowl performance affected his qualification for the regular season MVP award, I'd probably think it was awkward and find a "satire" blog post about it funny.

"There's, um, a card that comes with it," said Hampton, attempting to break the awkward silence. "It says, 'Peyton, congratulations on your magnificent year. People will remember your 2013 season forever. Good luck in the Super Bowl. We're sure you're going to have a terrific game.'"

Added Hampton, "This should've been delivered on Saturday, obviously. I apologize for the delay."

According to reports, Manning stood motionless and continued to stare at Hampton with "murder in his eyes," until the deliveryman finally placed the trophy gently down on the porch next to the QB's slippered feet, saying, "You know what? I'll just leave this here. You can bring it inside whenever you're ready."


Okay, that's pretty funny, actually.

I'm pretty sure PFM is run by three dorks still in high school. So, "idiot" accurately characterizes the mindset.

I think it is unfair to burden Manning with the Broncos loss.  I mean, they played against the greatest football team to ever play the sport of football on their best day ever.  They're lucky they even scored.

I actually didn't think he did THAT bad at the superbowl.  I'm pretty sure his first interception was tipped at the line and the second one he was being hit as he threw.  Plus he did complete 34 passes for almost 300 yards.  On most nights, against most teams, that would have been enough.

What really happened was the Seahawk defence just had their way with the Broncos as a whole.  The old adage, "Defence wins championships" is as true today as it's ever been (hell, the defence outscored the Broncos if you count the safety as being forced by them and the PAT for the INT return).  It's so true, it's almost universal among team sports.

His receivers did absolute crap. They would turn back, or move laterally after the catch thinking they could pick up more yards instead of just going forward for down markers. It was insane to watch.

Super Bowl wins against bad teams don't count?  By that logic, may as well add Russell Wilson to that picture.

Well, it didn't help that for most actual receptions at least two or three Seahawk defenders were already there to make the tackle.

Seriously.  There were so many times they could have easily grabbed an extra couple of yards and the first down along with it, but they instead decided to head for the end zone.

That was craziness.  I saw it happen once and I was like, "You no like first downs!?!?!".  The 2nd and 3rd time I had to wonder if they gameplanned giving up negative yards after the catch.

No, I think Manning was awesome this year, set records all over the place, and after the kind of absence that marks someone's exit from football...

I still got a kick out of the satire blog. I seem to be unique around here that I can take both sides of something almost all of the time though.

He set a SB record for completions and Jones set one for receptions, those are still good things they can take away.

I agree, even the dudes calling the game were like 'He was WIDE OPEN up the field, why did he decide to run across it instead?!?"

I really think the WR core lost them the game. They weren't used to the physicality of the game, and none of them decided to deal with it and move on. Take your hit, fall over the line and get back up.

Especially since the Seahawks D was like a bunch of Indian street children with their grabby hands and stuff.  The Broncos were probably checking their pockets after every tackle.

Manning turned the ball over 3 times himself - 4 if you count the safety.

I think the big hit Chancellor put on J. Thomas early in the game really made an impression on the Denver receivers.  They were expecting to be hit right away on those short crossing routes, and were dodging before the Seattle secondary had even arrived.

It was Demarrius, or however you spell it, and it sounds like he actually separated his shoulder on that play. As the game progressed, you could see a good amount of timidity when passes were caught over the middle.

1) Why on earth would anyone count the safety against Manning?

2) Turnovers are contextual. The one where his arm was being hit as he threw, not much he could do about that.

3) As a whole, the WRs did more damage to the team than Manning.

1) He said it was, in fact, his fault

2) He tried to throw in traffic.

3) As a whole, the WRs fumbled once and otherwise caught over 30 passes for nearly 300 yards and a TD. Yes, Manning threw those passes, but he also turned the ball over a lot.

His arm was hit before the ball ever came out, where he was throwing is debatable. However, like every other discussion on the internet, you have your opinion and I have mine, and we two will never agree.

This isn't even Romo defense, Romo manages to at least put up 300+ yards and 3+ TDs followed shiatting the bed with a minute left in the game.  Payton on the other hand managed to pretty much shiat the bed a minute into the game

Had the Pick 6 hit the ground, it would have been ruled incomplete. His arm was moving forward. On the 4th quarter fumble, the ball was swiped at before he started forward. I'd say, that if you're going to blame people on Denver for their misfortune, you priorities should go 1) Manning 2) O-Line 3) WR/TE

mikaloyd: I rather enjoy that the Romo Defense is now being used to exhonerate Peyton Farking Manning on Fark for his crimes against Bronies in the owl.


Well, the Romo defense usually is incurred when Romo's offense puts up like 30 points and loses.

When a team scores 8 points, and even THAT's just a garbage-time TD? I don't think even Romo apologists would go down this line of lunacy.

INeedAName: The one where his arm was being hit as he threw, not much he could do about that.


Move before throwing? Take a sack instead of trying to throw it? It's not like he was blindsided.

Well, I'd blame others as well. But if Manning gets all the glory when the records are set, Manning should get all the blame when everything goes to sh*t. He was the opposite of Sexy Rexy - taking all the 2-5 yard passes he could.

yep, if you're not willing to blame PFM for scoring the fewest points in any Bronco super bowl blowout ever (and there are 4 other blowouts to choose from), then he shouldn't get credit for all those TD's and yards he put up in the regular season
 
2014-02-05 01:48:32 PM  
Did Fran Tarkenton lose all four of the Vikings superbowls or is Jim Kelly the only one to lose four times? Either way I think Manning could tie that record before hew retires
