In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"What's the problem?"
He set the record for most completions in a SB.
And he only has as many SB losses as that other guy, Brady."
You're kidding right?
If not you may want to venture out of your bubble more.
Short version for you:
"He set the record for most completions in a SB."
He also had two pick sixes in the first half, one on a very bad throw the other on a very bad decision. Oh and a safety. His team never climbed out of that hole.
The fact he broke another meaningless record in the process makes the reality of his failure that much more delicious.
"And he only has as many SB losses as that other guy, Brady.""
Well, you see - wins in Super Bowls count too. Just ask John Elway.
Brady has lost two Super Bowls but in both he left the field with his team in the lead late in the game. In Peyton's two losses, one was a brutal blowout, and the last loss was clinched by a horrible fourth quarter pick 6.
So yeah, it's fun to watch the national media choke on their own hype fumes.
I respect Peyton far more than those in the media who put a crown on him before he had won anything.
It's simple: Peyton as the greatest of all time is over as a conversation. And yeah, I'm enjoying that. I currently put Brett Favre slightly ahead of Peyton and they are similar players in terms of gaudy stats and post season struggles.
Sorry, I didn't think I'd actually have to use the sarcasm font on that one.
BTW, I don't think PM threw two pick sixes in that game, but since he has thrown one before in the SB, it raises an interesting question.
Who holds the record for throwing the most pick 6's in their SB career (and how many)?
I don't know the answer. Just wondering if this is another record PM owns or managed to tie.
