    The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts

         Just when you thought that you've heard every excuse under the sun for Peyton's latest choke job, another one gets trotted out by the Manning apologists. Now, they're blaming the loss on reserve RB, Mike Hart: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/07/06/the-colts-may-have-found-a-new-super-bowl-scapegoat/

         LOL!!!

    Apparently, you all don't read russgriswolds posts.  He has 1000 excuses lined up for what may happen this year. So, some newspaper tells a story about what happened at a point in the game and the Colts are making excuses?  I don't get it.  Furthermore, Polian stating that the Oline got out played by the Saints Dline is making excuses.  Did you watch the game?  It did.  So, all of you non excuse makers, whose fault were Brady's pics against the Ravens?  Who to blame for our 2007 Superbowl loss?  Griswold says it was a lucky catch.  Are those excuses?

    Apparently you just don't get it. Both jughead and the colts organization have a long history of whining, complaining and finger pointing. If you had researched this topic at all before writing your own complaining post, you'd know that.

    Re: The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts

    My take on the Super Bowl and the ensuant criticism and deflection surrounding Manning is that one of Gomer's supposed strengths is that he is an offensive co-ordinator on the field. He's out there jumping up and down and waving his arms around like an idiot and all the pundits get all excited and claim defenses cannot stop him because he runs through the entire playbook in 11 seconds and blah, blah, blah all hail Peyton Manning and we're not worthy and what have you.

    Well, the primary reason the Colts lost the Super Bowl is because on that particular key third down, Manning went to his bread-and-butter play and Porter recognized it. Sorry . . .  nobody ran the wrong route and it wasn't a case of the defense making a lucky guess -- or even a bad throw, really. Porter saw the formation and knew what was coming and no matter how you break that down, it's on Manning.

    You can't have it both ways. If he's the ultimate secret weapon as an "offensive co-ordinator on the field," then it's his fault when he calls the wrong play or fails to disguise it effectively. I get that the Colts want to spin it that they don't even sniff the playoffs without Manning (which might be true) and they don't ever want to lay any blame for anything at his feet, but pretending the tide isn't coming in won't save your sandcastle.

    Re: The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts

    In Response to Re: The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts:

         Nice try, Dog(gggg).

    In Response to Re: The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts : I think Manning is given the respect he deserves. He's a great QB.

    RESPONSE: That's inaccurate. He's not a great QB. He's a great regular season QB. 

    Regardless if that pick was all his fault or not, that in itself does not constitute a choke or an excuse.  Here's what he said "Porter made a great play on the ball," Manning said not long after New Orleans’ 31-17 Super Bowl XLIV was in the books and red and silver confetti littered the Sun Life Stadium floor. "He made a good break on it. And he just made a heck of a play.”

    RESPONSE: What did you expect him to say, "I choked again"??  Manning made a bad read, and a worse throw. Someone who is praised as "another coach on the field", and as "the greatest QB of all-time", shouldn't be making such errors...wouldn't you agree? Furthermore, this is not his first, second, or even fourth such gaffe in big games.  

    To say it was a choke is to belittle Porters D.

    RESPONSE: As I stated above...nice try. Watch the play. Manning had no pressure on him, regardless of what Bill Polian would have us believe. Reggie Wayne was well covered...yet Manning threw the ball right into coverage, to Porter. Credit Porter for excellent coverage. But, ultimately, Peyton must shoulder the blame for this gaffe. Please...STOP making excuses for him!

    THE COLTS' O-LINE WON THE MATCHUP

    EVEN ON THE INTERCEPTION, THEY DIDN'T HIT MANNING BEFORE THE THROW.

    I respect Manning now more than ever since Brady started complaining to officials, too, but Polian and dogggg needs to admit when their boy messed up.

    In Response to Re: The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts:
    I agree.  It was a close game and Egghead does what he does best in playoff games. He chokes when he's counted on.  It's that simple. Put him outdoors where Polian can't blatantly tailor a game with officials making up calls and he's mediocre when it matters. He's clearly no Brady and not a Montana or a Unitas.
    Posted by russgriswold


    Guess that's why I appreciate what Brady, Favre, Tarkenton, Bradshaw and Montana more so than Manning. They play the majority games outdoors in any sorts of weather. Be interesting to see a average QB rating/stats for indoor vs outdoor performances.

    Posted by 49Patriots


    O.k. 49, See the reason WHY I skipped watching the championship game of My only and favorite sport in the known universe, Has been made all to clear after partaking in that Youtube 2010 SB highlights clip you s^ckered me into viewing. 

    First...yes, I DID see 1 Saints blitz, where one of the Saints players really coulda almost had a hand on Peyton Manning (after 3 or 4 seconds in the pocket)- I mean The Colts O-Line picked up the blitz perfectly, but the LARGER Point is: The Saints DL while blitzing on that particular down, AND IF given maybe 3 or 4 more seconds, perhaps, maybe, coulda got maybe 1 hand on Manning...  Again, I know- I know-They DIDN'T...but yet again, The important point ofcontention here Is that, maybe they could have in the right circumstances...on that 1 play...and with more time...and perhaps if NO sent maybe 1 extra guy blitzing (but realistically, probably 2 or 3 more).

    Digression aside, I go back to my original point:  Q: WHY Didn't I watch the greatest game in the best sport on earth?  A:  Well, I'll provide with you ALL a few examples from that highlight clip 49Pats provided here (see IF you can figure it out yourselves)...

    Action: Saints blitz and Colts O-Line picks up each and every defender...
    ~Announcer states:  "There's the first blitz of the game by the saints, and Peyton hits Pierre Garcon for a BIG First Down!"

    Action: Colts O-Line blocks each Saints D-Lineman on a running play and 1 or 2 LBs as well.  Joseph Addai breaks hard to the wide-open hole, does a stutter move on the last unblocked Saints LB, and runs hard into 2 Saints defenders rather than going straight out of bounds, So that He secures the 10 yards for a fresh set of downs...
    ~Announcer states:  "Ahh, Wow...good play call by Peyton Manning here, changing the play right at the line of scrimmage."

    Action:  Pass play, Saints show blitz but fall back @ the snap.  No Saint defender is within 5-7 yards of Manning in the center of the passing pocket...  Pierre Garcon wide-right, gives stutter move towards an inside slant turning the CB completely around in coverag, Then blows by both the Saints CB covering him on Fly-route into endzone, and is fast enough in 
    his route that The Saints Safety can't even move from centerfield of secondary to the top in time to help out...Garcon thus beating the double coverage 
    ~Announcer states:  "On 3 plays later, we got our first TD of the game on 3rd and 6- Peyton Manning niiiccce throw to Pierre Garcon."
    ~Second Announcer states:  "WOOoooh...Soon as 1 Saints Corner goes down (on injury some time earlier), Peyton Manning goes RIGHT TO the replacement CB and scores a Touchdown!"

    Action:  Pass-play.  Colts O-line is on each and every pass-rusher.  Peyton Manning rolls out into the right passing flat...No Saint within 10-12 yards of Manning.  Dallas Clark lining up @ LOS as right TE, beats the LB jamming him at line, and speeds past the LB showing a straight deep route.  Clark cuts outside downfield into a post going towards the deep right sideline, Getting behind not 1, not 2, not 3, lmao-not even 4...But 5 Saints defenders all within a few yards of him in the deep secondary, catches the pass and is taken down by 2 of the Saints defenders...
    ~Announcer:  "Saints ahead in a SB for the first time ever, BUT Peyton Manning putting that chin-strap back on... 6 plays later, Dallas Clark-Ohh, What a GORgeous throw...".
    ~Second Announcer:  "Yea, Peyton got outta the pocket a couple times to the right-side, And threw just beautifully from the run...".
    ~Announcer:  "I just GOTTA look at that again."
    ~Third Announcer:  "Ya GOTTA see that again...And not only the throw, but look at the route- standing straight up (Clark), giving him the length, But ONLY Peyton Manning can stick the pass in like how he did."


    Of Note
    :  With that...I sorta stopped watching 49ers highlight film... 

    FINAL:  IF ya can't figure out WHY I didn't even WANT to watch the Superbowl, with what I offered here...OR where I'm goin' with this...You're either a Colts Fan, or somewhat brain damaged to a degree...

    Wow. That was a great article and I hope others here read it as well. There's little or no speculation involved. No opinions, no bias, just facts. The funny thing is if the writer had been able to remove the gaudy statistics the Patriots have had over the recent years, the advantage to domed teams would have been even more pronounced. This article, in my opinion, though others have made this argument for years, has the facts to contradict the argument for Manning as the GOAT. In fact, added to his post season failures, it makes Manning look downright pedestrian.

         Here's an article on "Mr. Wonderful", written by "The Football Scientist", K.C. Joyner. The article is mis-entitled, "Why Peyton Manning Isn't More Revered"?

         Why isn't ol' Horseface more revered?? He is worshipped by the media! Perhaps Joyner meant to say, "Why Peyton Manning Isn't More Revered by Football Fans"? 

         In any event, here's the article. You be the judge: http://fifthdown.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/20/why-peyton-manning-isnt-more-revered/

         You might want to browse over the fan responses to the piece...which are always good for a few laughs.

         Thoughts?
