Courtesy of LOLPats…Sorry Jets fans. Maybe next year.
When I finally wrapped my head around this game last Sunday night, I had two immediate thoughts. The Jets already won in Pittsburgh back in Week 15. I can’t remember a playoff game off the top of my head with two teams featuring more quasi-unlikable/polarizing characters than this […]

However, Manning and the Colts proved to be just too much and moved on to Super Bowl XLIV in Miami with a […]

In perhaps what might be the biggest AFC Championship game mismatch at quarterback ever, Mark Sanchez and the Jets will attempt to slay the dragon that is Peyton Manning and his […]
Jets fans are all in a tizzy over the upcoming AFC Championship tilt with the Indianapolis Colts. Playing in just their third AFC title game since the NFL/AFL merger, Jets fans are counting their blessings for being in this spot. Considering that they routinely botched drafts for years, […]

According to a report in the New York Post, Ryan consumes 7,000 calories…a day.
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.
