Default Watching these playoff games has convinced me

that football is simply no longer a sport.

It's a performance. At first I suspected same. Now it's obvious.

Know what I mean?

No - if it was scripted Peyton and Green Bay would have won because keeping Peyton and Green Bay in the playoffs would draw higher ratings next week

Another Peyton-Brady matchup would have drawn in the casual viewer

Or ESPN/FOX Sports will get big ratings this week for going 24/7 over Peyton underperforming in the playoffs yet again.

Another Peyton/Brady matchup in the playoffs? Not really...b/c it will be yet another one of those generic sequels noone will care about.
