    Tennessee Vol fans find the latest Manning performance strangely familiar...

    ridiculous. Not like the drops or the lack of a defense helped him...

    If Peyton's a Pat, he's the greatest QB ever.

    Sure. But when you look at his complete body of work, he's the John Cooper of NFL quarterbacks.

    I had v$650 riding on the Colts. Turns out the best QB in the league can't even score a touchdown against 3rd and 4th string corners.

    The Pats are to the Colts as the Bulls were to the Cavs. Just cannot get past them.

    If Peyton lost the game did Cory Dillon win it?
    Actually I give credit to NE defense.

    Teams win and teams lose, I would guess the only people that know that are the ones that played on a team.

    It is a team game and the Colts did drop too many balls and miss too many tackles and coverages.

    Of course poor Peyton just set an NFL touchdown pass record and got a $34 million signing bonus. I think he will survive.
     
  10. Did any of you guys watch the post-game show and see that Boomer called Manning the next Marino? Man I thought old Dan was going to come right out of his seat!! The next time they had Marino on camera !!!THE LOOK ON HIS FACE !!WOW!!

    Well - I don't know who won it (though Dillon's role was big in a great ground game).
    I agree with you that NE Defense deserves major props for another stonewalling of the "unstoppable" Colt offense. To name just one of them --
    :osu: Vrabel -- another great game. I'm so glad Mike found a fitting home for his talents after his poor experience in Da Burg.

    I would say more like the Broncos were to the Browns.

    This game wasn't Peyton's fault. You have to look at the O-line and the receivers for this one.

    So what excuses do you make for him when he couldn't beat Florida?

    I am completely indifferent to Manning one way or the other but given the entire body of his work(college and pro) there is definitly something to the premise "he can't win the big game".

    Remember UT won the NC the very next year after he left.

    To say an individual "can't win the big one" in a predominately team sport is a stretch. He was trying to beat the defending Super Bowl champs on their field in, at times, a blinding snow storm against a team built by a defensive genius.

    Come on, it wasn't Manning vs. the Patriots. How many blocks did Manning miss that kept James from gaining more than 49 yards? Manning can only throw the ball, he can't catch it too. Dink - another pass off of a receiver's hands. The Colts defense has NE third and 10 at the 6 yard-line with about 14 minutes in the fourth quarter and down 13-3. Great field position is riding on the play. What happens - NO ONE COVERS THE BACK and it's Pats first down. Seven minutes later - TD. Not one time did I see Manning trying to stop that drive.

    Give him a break. He had a fantastic season. The Patriots are just a better TEAM than the Colts.
