Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season
Well, at the very least, this ought to quiet down all the 'Manning is the greatest ever' legacy talk for a while. 1/3 in the big game, on top of a pretty awful playoff record in general, coming up small in the big games.
Still a great QB, but to be in the big conversation, can't keep crapping your pants when it counts, gotta win a few.
Manning completed 70% of his passes. The first INT was an ugly ball that floated, but the other two turnovers were him getting hit as he threw/attempted to throw. It wasn't Manning's fault the defense allowed a score on every drive but one. It wasn't Manning's fault that they allowed the kickoff return to essentially end the game. It wasn't his fault that Ramirez went full retard and opened the game with a safety. He wasn't perfect by any means, but he did his part. The Broncos were dominated in every phase of the game, but you're right- this was clearly another example of him crapping the bed.
