During Wednesday night’s marathon-length ESPYs, the Worldwide Leader trotted out a trailer spoof of The Blind Side featuring Sandra Bullock and Peyton Manning. The Dark Side wasn’t exactly a side-splitter but Manning does a bang up job with this stuff.

While he did win Super Bowl XLI MVP, Manning posted one of the worst postseason runs for a Super Bowl winning quarterback of all-time. He threw three touchdown passes but posted seven interceptions and did not have a single game passer rating higher than 81.6. Despite slaying the Patriots on the way to winning the Super Bowl, something just seems missing from Manning’s resume.
He is missing THAT game. That hammer performance in a championship game. Montana had three monster Super Bowls; Unitas had the ’58 NFL title game; Brady had Super Bowl XXXVI & XXXVIII; Elway had back to back Super Bowls, both endearing in different ways. What is Peyton Manning’s defining postseason moment? The 2006 AFC title game? He was ok in Super Bowl XLI but far from lights out. He still needs THAT game.
