    well the radio broadcast of MNF is almost as bad as the TV one now. Boomer is on there kissing mannings but all night. After making excuses such as a heavy wind, he finally admitted manning threw the ball poorly once. he then decided to call manning the bset 2 min qb in the history of the nfl

    you're lucky you listened to the game on the radio. you should have heard all the excuses the Monday Night Crew was making for manning and the colts. Manning had 2 good drives early in the game and they were saying, "Manning finally looks like himself. He is starting to get his rhythm after missing training camp, etc." then their opinion changed completely the second half. it was then, "colts offense is still struggling." honestly, make up your mind kornheiser.

    Manning is probably in the top 5 of all-time QBs, if not the second best (to Brady, of course) when all is said and done. He's never been overrated, he's been consistently one of the best QBs throughout his career. This isn't a media lovefest of a guy like Brett Favre who was highly overrated for the better part of a decade, it's quite legitimate. The media often makes excuses when Brady has a poor run of games, too, and usually he bounces back.

    I think Manning is off because of the surgery he had to have close to the start of the season and completely missing training camp. He's sure to find his rythym soon, but (hopefully for our sake) it'll be too late for the Colts by then. That said, injuries and poor depth on defense are hurting them far more than Manning's play.

    But, over the last five years, Manning's QB rating has declined every year, not just this year because of injury......

    2004[FONT=&quot] ---- [/FONT]121.1
    2005[FONT=&quot] ------ [/FONT]104.1
    2006[FONT=&quot] ---- [/FONT]101.0
    2007[FONT=&quot] ---- [/FONT] 98.0

    The truth is that the Colts game really doesn't matter much to us this year. The three games against the Bills, Jets , and Fins coming up after the Colts game matter a lot more.

    We should sit out any player that is not 100% healthy (if there is such a thing), so they are in better shape for the next 3.

    Interesting. I do believe that the NFL's List of Top 10 Clutch QB's of all time had ONE active guy in the top three and it was our boy Tommy.

    Exactly, Last nights game was MUCH more important to the Colts than Sunday's game vs. the Pats.

    The Colts vs. Patriots game this Sunday is more important to the NFL in terms of ratings than it is to the teams chances at the post season.

    That being said, I want to win this game more than I do most others. It's a great grudge match.

    Until we have a couple game lead over the Bills all the games are important.

    No it wasn't, BB would not have mentioned the Bills by name like that as it would disrespect the possibility of the Jets or Dolphins winning the division.

    Would anyone be surprised if Peyton showed up doing a VideoProfessor commercial?

    He's taken $200k for a preteen's birthday party, where the Mom made the moves on him. He's licked the cream out of Oreo's as though he were, you know what. Would it surprise you to hear him utter these words?

    "Please try my product."

    Manning is clearly still hurting from the Bursa Sac surgery. Steve Young was absolutely right about it. The ball just wasn't coming off of his hands in that certain way that it usually does. He missed a wide open Marvin Harrison twice (by my count anyway) and seemed to be dancing a lot more in the backfield. He's also staring down the receivers that he wants to throw to almost as if he feels this urge to get the ball out of his hands quicker so he doesn't have to absorb a full hit. All of these are very uncharacteristic of Manning and it kind of sucks to be honest with you. On the field, I hate Manning only because of what he is capable of, especially against us. But I cannot deny that the guy is one helluva quarterback and it's been a joy to watch him and Brady compete against one another throughout the years. Hopefully he shakes this soon (but not before this weekend :D).

    Aside from this year's rating, those are all stellar QB ratings, so an actual decline doesn't matter much. Yes, his rating declined in 2006, but he also happened to win a Super Bowl that year.

    Are you seriously trying to argue that Manning is not one of the greatest QBs to ever play the game?

    We should just decimate them, give Peyton a reason to take the year off and get our big bad-a$s battle back next year.

    Manning is one of the greatest QBs to have ever played the game.
    Favre is one of the greatest QBs to have ever played the game.
    Brady is one of the greatest QBs to have ever played the game.

    However, THIS YEAR all three sucked crap compared to Cassel or Pennington.

    And you have to love that the only way for one of them to stink was to not play. At this rate, next year Tommy will be all alone on the peak of Mt. Awesome. This year it's just Mt. Giselle. :D

    No way, if you can Beat the Colts, you do it. They may not look like anything special, but I'm pretty sure they will be in the playoff picture. This Pats team is not good enough to consider blowing off anybody and not taking them seriously. Playoff seeding could be on the line as well. The division games are certainly big as ever this year though, especially with the Bills doing so well.
