So the truth is finally out there, well the front lasted for a while anyway. The funny thing is that TheAlphaMale and I don't even like the Lions - we are, truth be told, Cardinals fans. :lol:

As for Manning, I think that we are getting a little ahead of ourselves when it comes to comparing him to Marino as far as no championship. It is so hard to win a championship, you need almost a perfect storm. They will get there, and Manning will be one of the biggest reasons why. I don't think that any of the offensive playmakers on the team would be as good without Manning behind center.

When the upgrade their D a little bit more, they will be the champs.

That may be more of a problem than you think. Manning's contract is so huge that it doesn't leave a whole lot of money for top defensive players. Same thing that Marino's contracts did to Miami.

Exactly!, you said it perfectly, with a QB making as much as Manning does it leaves little cap left to make the rest of team better, that means its up to the QB to put the team on his back in those situations, just like Micheal Vick in Atlanta and Brett Farve and others, if you want that much money you need carry your team and be the leader.

If it's all about congratulating players, then Joey Harrington should be a lot better than he is.

Indy has failed to score 20 points in EVERY PLAYOFF LOSS during the Manning era.

In the games that I've seen of those.......the offensive line was overwhelmed by a blitzing defense, and they couldn't find an adjustment that worked. I think they rely a little too much on finesse......and then they don't play well when a team "punches them in the mouth".

I also think it is interesting that the defense has allowed more than 24 points only ONE TIME out of those 6 playoff losses..............yet they still get blamed for the team's failure.



I think it will be interesting to see how long it takes Manning to re-structure his deal. His massive contract isn't exactly helping them keep that team together.

First of all - Manning is one of the BEST QB's to ever play the game! Football is a team sport, don't forget that! Everyone is quick to blame Manning, but I think their small receivers are part of the problem when facing playoff teams. These teams tend to be more physical with Indy's WR's and cause timing issues. Watch the games, Manning can't do it all. But believe me when I say, he is one of the best to ever play the position.
