Your saying the colts were underdogs ? There was no doubt in my mind they would win. Their defense is pretty good and peyton manning is the best QB in the NFL. Im thinking the Colts will win. Grossman and his O-line itend to be inconsistent. Pats are good but Brady didnt do that good against the chargers.

And Peyton Manning is known to choke in these situations. It seems like the last time the Colts were supposed to beat the Patriots in the playoffs, the Patriots wooped up on them.

Credited. He never won a high school championship, a college championship (despite having a team that Tee Martin led to the title), or a pro champ. He's Chokasaurus Rex.

Don't you have to have success before a playoff flop is a real "choke?"

This thread was a poor example.

I regret choosing it, I will not return out of respect for the others in it.


Sorry for the intrusion. Have a great week everyone.

There are levels to choking, though. Losing after you fag out and pull "we want the ball, we're going to win" is different from being MVP, super QB and never winning a meaningful game.

Which is why i think the Patriots were my choice to win it all since pre-season. Tom Brady wins. He's the best quarterback of this era. There's no close 2nd. Manning is a phenomenal regular season quarterback with amazing stats, but Brady wins big games. 3 Superbowls in 5 years! After he wins this Superbowl there will a debate of who was better, Brady or Montana.

I can agree with this. HOWEVER, Peyton losing a game is amplified to a degree that Rex is not. Moreover, Brady losing a game is seen as an anomaly, while P.Rivers is not. There are levels of not coming through in January.

Very true.....


However, i believe that you cannot measure who is better, since it is all in opinion....


in MY opinion, Johnny Unitas is the greatest QB of all time...do you guys care? no, it's only MY OPINION

That's a fair point. Still, the importance of a single loss in the playoffs is magnified/minimized by what one has done prior to that loss. You can't argue with that.

no, i cant, but i still think that both Grossman, and Manning are chokers....


Manning may be more of one, but Grossman will be worse, esp. if Manning gets a ring this year....
