    You should know the answer to this already. and the , "not fair, not fair" piece does sound like sour grapes.

    btw...it's Peyton not payton. It's about as awful as seeing someone spell out "Whitten" or "Irving"...

    Yeah, that's the sad part if you're a Peyton or Bronco fan.

    The premise was that his PM's wisdom, experience, and field-generalship would offset any loss in mobility or arm strength -- it did not.

    Again, that answers the question regarding whether defense is likely to win championships.

    Sure, which part would you like me to repeat or put in my signature? I would love nothing more than to oblige you. Manning is by far my favorite QB in the league right now but he had a horrendous game last night. You expect more out of one of the greatest QB's to ever play the game and out of the top offense in the whole league.

    Anyone else see Eli watching the game, and wonder if he was thinking " Boy I was lucky to have a great D to help me".........

    At least you are honest.

    Maybe you are not looking at this 20/20. ;)

    A combination of both the defense being very good and the Broncos as a whole just not showing up... Not just Manning. DT made no impact. The tackles were putrid. Welker couldn't get open against the zone and Julius Thomas lack of route running ability reared it's ugly ahead against the best safety tandem in the league.

    But... what? 2 blow out losses? You do realize the Colts were ahead 17-16 going into the 4th against the Saints, right?

    Things didn't start going downhill until Indy missed a FG that would've made it 20-16, but instead gave NO the great field position for the TD and 2 pt that put them ahead.

    Not talking about Manning whom I consider to be in a league with Unitas. I'm talking about your nearly constant if not all posting that has something anti-Romo as its theme. Since most of them are one or two lines at best then I thought you could just put I hate Romo, inflated in your own words of course, in a sig. Then you wouldn't have to go from thread to thread with your mantra. You can have the last word.

    I appreciate you giving me the last word, I will do the same for you in the future. #1 Most of my posting is not just anti-Romo,I post about all kinds of stuff, it just seems that way to you since you love him and can't stand for anyone to say anything negative about him. #2. A gazillion people have posted about both Romo and Peyton in here, I am no exception. The OP even started this thread to basically compare the 2 with regards to how the media views them. I was simply saying If Romo was the QB in that game last night I would have roasted him the same way I am roasting Peyton about it. Peyton played horribly last night and is part of the reason his team lost. A loss can very rarely if ever be blamed on just one player, so it wasn't all his fault but he did play very bad and hurt his teams chance of winning. Not sure why me posting that would get you all up in arms and throwing insults. Ok, end of our discussion.

    No way. The only way this happens is if Seattle wins the first 4.

    Interesting how they call Russel Wilson a "game manager", perhaps Mr. Super-Pro Manning should get him some of that "game management".

    I don't think any QB playing for Denver could've been successful yesterday against that defense. No one.

    Wilson made passes when necessary and didn't turn the ball over. I'd call that superb.

    Yeah and the point you're trying to convey is a salient one with no logical basis, just like the sporting media.
