    Yea, but imagine having Dungy for your coach. There are ramafications. I would think that Dungy and Manning actually do have quite a few differences. And, in the end, it is Payton who probably wins out.

    I think that Payton is very driven. He certainly does get pissed at people for not doing their jobs. He is conceted. Got a big head. What ever. But I think he is a far better person than Dungy. Manning does not hide behind sanctimonious bs. He had a very bad game. Actually, he is not having as good a year.

    I think that Florio is the worst kind of journalist also. He is just as bad as easterbrook.

    I don't know. the fact is, the Chargers were very, very lucky to win that game even with all that crap. The Chargers are freakin' AWFUL. If there's anyone left over here who still fears them......don't. Just don't.

    What's new. Remember a couple years ago, on 4th and short. Dungy trotted out the FG squad and Peyton waved them back off the field so HE could run the play.

    You imagine Brady doing that kind of stupid sh!t. BB would call a timeout and stop the game. Waive Tommy over and them proceed to kick him in the nuts repeatedly on National TV until he learned his lesson. Seriously, who's in charge over there? Peyton a such a primadonna and Dungy is such a p*ssy.

    I am know Peyton lover but irresponsible journalism can take any quote out of context and twist it to make their point. Peyton had a hellacious game inside the confines of an average year. I think he knows it and admitted as such.

    Peyton followers cannot let go of the idea of Peyton as a superhero. For example see the Peyton as Beowolf comparison prior to last nights game. A Great QB in his prime takes setbacks, like loss of key receivers, and overcomes them to win anyway. Peyton follwers say-"how do you expect Peyton to win without his key receivers?" Many media members have invested too much butt smooching time to let this go and admit Peyton is having an off year.

    Part of greatness is overcoming adversity.

    Yep. That incident, which was a punt situation by the way, is why I will never respect Dungy as a coach.

    Manning was so classless when he disrespected his HC like that.

    Re: Peyton exposes his true colors, again

    What crock PFT can be. I thought you guys hated it, sure are a lot of people that like Florio when he's not talking about the Pats. Even if Peyton was saying they should have called a time on the bench as he claims, what's wrong with that? I don't think he was wrong about taking a time out. Either take a chance at getting the first or let the clock run down at kick the field goal. Everyone saw the results when they didn't. Not to say that AV would have hit the field goal from 5 yards closer, but it's more likely that he would have. If you agree with Florio, then I guess you feel that players should be mindless robots right? It's not like he said it to anyone outside of the orginization. Florio did forget to add that Peyton took full blame.

    Yup. Anyone can make up unnamed sources. I think Florio is mad at Polian's remarks from earlier. But I think it's funny to see some mediot shed light on this Manning thing. :D

    Re: Peyton exposes his true colors, again

    I was going to post exactly the same thing. Wasn't going to call Manning and Dungy names though. Probably not. At least not those names. Well maybe those names, but I would done it nicer. Ah screw it...

    Peyton is such a primadonna and Dungy is such a p*ssy.

    There...are you happy now?

    Re: Peyton exposes his true colors, again

    Hey, I agree with you. I can't stand PFT and the whole "source" thing just made me cringe. I'm not gonna fault Peyton some frustration for last night. It was a horrible night for him and the team.

    Florio sucks ass.

    Re: Peyton exposes his true colors, again

    Acually, I agree with Pick-a-ton Manning on this, the coach should have kept his timeouts. The more time you have, the better the chance to score.


    I also agree with some of the other posters, PFT is a load of crap that isn't worth the time it takes to click on the link, never mind reading

    Precisely.
    Florio is not to be trusted with factual accuracy. He MAY be right but he goes for sensationalism and plays loose with the facts. A rumormonger.

    Reading his stuff is a rorsach (sp?) test. Folks believe what they want to believe. Sadly even mainstream 'real' news editors now often project their belief systems into the reporting.

    Re: Peyton exposes his true colors, again

    Agreed...PFT is a perfect example of how the media likes to pile on. Manning had a bad game...he was talking out loud...emotional, and analytical as always...and extremely frustrated with both himself and his teammates. Manning can certainly misspeak and can come off as a spoiled SOB...but saying something that is overheard on the sideline is not the same as saying it to the press. And anonymous quotes are cowardly in most contexts.

    One more thing....

    "Anonomus Quotes" is code for "I'm making this up as I write"

    Re: Peyton exposes his true colors, again

    I will pop onto PTF just to check out some of the items on there. Florio does go about 50/50 for putting some factual stuff worth a cr@p on there, but when he has a bone to pick or a dead horse he won't let go of he doesn't play by the same ethics that other writers hold onto.

    BTW, his claim was from lip reading Peyton during the broadcast while Peyton was sitting on the bench.

    Well, he is a board certified lip reader. Or was that bored, certifiable...
