Re: Mom! Make him stop! He's using the same play over and over again!
He is an idiot. He made the silly semantic jump from:
1) They are running on us and it is working.
2) They don't think our run D is as good as our pass D.
3) Therefore, they don't respect our run D as much as our pass D.
So far, so good. Then, because the word 'respect' is in 3:
4) They don't respect our run D.
5) I am on the run D.
6) They don't respect me.
7) They are disrespecting me.
And for a man of his calibre, that is about the worst thing you can do because it's all about respect.
We are not dealing with a mental giant here. I just hope one of the mediots down there, or one of his teammates or coaches, says something to him.
The difference is that Brady calmly calls audibles while Manning flaps like a chicken, barks 11 code words, and makes sure every camera in the stadium has documented his once-in-a-generation (and patented, I believe) ability to see a defensive formation and change the play. Both have the same effect, but Manning transcends measurable human intellect while Brady merely chooses a different play.
