LOL this. Peyton Manning has 13 seasons where his team won 10+ regular season games.... and he has only 1 ring to show for it, against Rex Grossman.
LOL @ "against Rex Grossman." As if it matters who you beat in the Super Bowl.
I guess Peyton is a guy you either love or you hate, there's no middle ground. Most people hate him on this forum, apparently.
I like how when a person's favorite team loses a game, it's always a "team" effort. When we lost with Alex, it was the whole team that lost that game. But when you hate a QB, all of a sudden, it isn't a team effort anymore - all the blame goes to that QB. Sadly, some people actually do that with Kap around here, but that's another story.
Bottom line, if Peyton had any semblance of a defense in Indi, he probably would be working on his 4th ring by now. You can call him a choke artist all you want, but the fact is they were only in that position because of Peyton in the first place. His entire team was trash without him. Look what happened to the Colts the one year he was out. Worst team in the NFL. But sure, let's ignore that and blame Peyton anytime he doesn't win the Super Bowl, as if he has had an entire team full of great players and he just single-handedly blew the whole game. Sure.
You need a defense. Period. Even an average performance would be enough. He never got it, except one year - and he happened to win the Super Bowl that year. It wasn't a coincidence.
Last year, there's no way you can tell me the rest of the Broncos showed up in the Super Bowl. The entire team was pathetic. But hey, let's blame it all on Peyton. The other 52 guys that didn't bother to show up to the game had nothing to do with the Seahawks raping them.
