Can't win the big one, indeed. Old #18 is turning into the modern-day equivalent of John Elway. Will he manage to get to the Super Bowl before he's done? Time will tell, but he's going to have to wait another year at least.
For all his tricked-up play-calling-at-the-line-of-scrimmage and pointing crazily at the defensive alignment (just a note here - doesn't it seem like all that carrying on would further stress out his linemen?), Manning is not the miracle worker I thought he might be this year. Pittsburgh tried hard to lose this one, but Peyton couldn't un-gag the chicken bone caught in his throat long enough to do anything about it.
Ah well, go Seahawks (I guess). Consider me on the Rain City Bandwagon, but only because it's the only semi-attractive one left.
