Me too, but for different reasons. The Colts/Ravens game last season, a Sunday nighter, was IMO perhaps the best football game I saw last season. Only two teams last season figured out a way to stifle Manning, the Ravens and the Patriots, and they both did it the same way, essentially: lots and lots of motion pre-snap. See, Manning is used to doing his pre-snap adjustments and audibles and having the opposing defense trying to figure it out and react to him. He reads the defense and starts making adjustments (or not, it’s often just for show) as he looks for possible points of exploitation. At least, Nervous Nellie opposing defenses think so, so they flip out and start rambling all over the place, corners and LBs back off, and then Manning just hands it off like he was going to anyway - but, he got the LBs and CBs to back off, didn’t he? What the Ravens did first, and then the Patriots smartly copied in the playoffs, during the season was come out with their guys in motion first. You saw Ray Lewis barking position changes to match every audible Manning called. Man, and that game could have been the one that broke the single-season TD record, in Indy (it didn’t because Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning respect their opponents and didn’t try for a stupid 4th down TD pass). Every time the Colts had the ball, you were watching a game unlike many you’ve seen. The crowd was dead quiet so that Manning could make his audibles, you could hear Ray Lewis shouting his orders, his eyes locked on Manning. They kept them under wraps for most of the game, but the Ravens’ offense was just too anemic and the Ravens couldn’t manage to get inside Manning’s head the way the Patriots keep doing.
A triple-Biller! By “one,” what do you mean? Superbowl? Game? I don’t think he’s going to another Superbowl, honestly. Anyway, you do admit the reason the Cowboys roster has Patriots and Jets alums isn’t because of the QB, yeah?
