You know what seperates Peyton Manning from Jim Sorgi?

A famous father.

Its funny I really cant imagine Terry Bradshaw looking over at his WR with a 'disappointed, couldnt you do better' sort of look after he just underthrew him.

If the media slobber over Brady its because he has done it - no he didnt INVENT the comeback - but he has certainly perfected it.

The truth was revealed when you described the anticipation for Peyton before he even enterd the NFL - its all about what he may do - not anything he has ever actually achieved - he couldnt even win a college bowl final.

You can make all the comments you want about FG kickers winning SB's - but when was the last time Manning ever left the fate of his team in the playoffs in the hands of anyone else?

The answer is never - either the Colts win by a country mile - or Manning cant even get them close.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

really??
2001- Down by 10 vs Chargers with minutes to go he lead them back, inclding TD pass in the last minute.
2002- TD pass to Patten in last minute to win at Chicago
2002- TD pass in last minute to tie Miami before OT win
2003- TD pass to Troy Brown in OT to win at Miami
2003- TD pass to Givens in last minute to win on MNF at Denver
2003- TD pass to Graham in last minute to tie game at Houston before OT win
2003- led TD drive with 2 minutes to go to take the lead vs Carolina in SB 38. defense
gives it up. so he leads another drive to set up Vinatieri. i gues that wasnt impressive.

so dont say hes never done it. besides, if you only need a FG to win, thats what you need.
right, Brian Sipe?????
