Peyton & Tom

Sitting in a tree.

Or something. This was a truly enjoyable weekend of football we just experienced. The overrated and annoying Patriots lose, and then the overrated and annoying Colts follow suit. It couldn’t have turned out better.

I’m not particularly in love with any of the remaining teams, but I can tell you that nobody on Earth, with the possible exception of those living in the “city” of “New England,” wanted to see the Patriots in another Superbowl anytime soon. We’re all tired of the way the just squib out victories by 3 points. We’re all tired about hearing how Belicheck is the next Lombardi. We’re all tired of hearing about how Tom Brady is the next Joe Montana. Give me a break. Tom Brady has done nothing spectacular in his entire career, except be fortunate enough to be on a team coached by a very smart guy. Tom Brady is mediocre at best, and survives only because of the system.

The only reason the Patriots were in the postseason was that they are in the most pansy-assed, wussy division in the league, and their schedule went something like this:

  1. Home – Detroit
  2. Home – Arizona
  3. Away – Fresno State Junior College
  4. Away – Detriot
  5. Home – JFK High School
  6. Home – Detroit
  7. Away – Arizona
  8. Away – New Orleans
  9. Home – Detroit
  10. Home – New Orleans
  11. Away – Buffalo
  12. Away – Chiefs
  13. Home – MIT
  14. Home – Detroit
  15. Away – New Orleans
  16. Away – Detroit

The only tough game they had was versus the Chiefs, and the Chiefs WHIPPED them soundly and sent them home crying for their mommies. The Chiefs had the same record as the Patriots, AND the Chiefs beat the Patriots during the regular season, but the Chiefs didn’t make the playoffs because we are in the manliest, hardest, toughest division, the AFC West. Only a loser division can have a team win the division with a 10-6 record. The Patriots were the only team in their division that even made .500!

Peyton Manning is the worst. The Colts richly deserved the whooping that was dealt them. The “team of the century” that was going to be undefeated couldn’t even win as many consecutive games as the Dolphins 14-0 record, and then they lost their first playoff game… at home. This came as absolutely no surprise to me, as anyone with half a brain can see that a team who doesn’t play its starters for a month is bound to have problems. Some of the starters didn’t even bother to ATTEND the away games at the end of the season. It’s an unheard of level of un-commitment and un-follow-through. Peyton Manning has all of the ego of a Tom Brady, and he hasn’t even managed to get to a Superbowl, let alone win one.

Of course, in true Peyton style, rather than take responsibility for playing like a high-schooler, he opted to instead blame his “5 layers of protection” that we’re so sick of seeing on the credit card commercial. He couldn’t figure out how to call out protections to save his own life, and then he blames THEM? Only a whiny, selfish, unsportsmanlike brat blames others when he’s supposedly this “great team leader.”

Peyton and Tom… get a life.

As for the upcoming games… Of course I’m rooting for Denver (AFC West) and Pittsburg (AFC). I’ve always been a fan of the Steelers, so they’re my emotional favorite. However, I think Denver is going to beat them 3 to 0. So it’s Denver all the way. Neither of the NFC teams can beat either of the AFC teams.

Per Usual.

So, go Denver. Show those stinking wussy divisions who’s boss.

    Spoken like a true Chef’s Fan. I noticed that once again the Chef’s were NO WHERE to be found in the post season….You whine when you win you bitch when you lose. Maybe they should move to LA and then you could watch that really good KU Basket Ball…….OH NO wait, they suck too.

    Chief are only 4th team in history to not make the play-offs with a 10-6 record. The chiefs weren’t even healthy till the end of the season. Oh yeah and Larry Johnson….need I say more. There wasn’t one team in the AFC thanking God they didn’t have to play the Chiefs in the post season.

    As for KU sucking, we are young. Don’t get used to it we will be back to badass next year.

    As for Tom Brady I agree. He’s over rated to the highest power. lol I love it how sports anylists love to credit the quarterback when a team is good. That team is good……uh….must be the quarterback.

    Now Peyton on the other hand is incredible and maybe one of the smartest players in the game now and maybe ever. He was right, his offensive line just didn’t show up last weekend. Lol he looked like poor old David Carr, the defense was just running straight in. Very uncharacteristic of the Colts.

    Now all arguing aside I think we can all agree that we would like to see the BUS win the superbowl. Unless your team is still in it of course.

    Nightmare, I’m disappointed in you considering you live in KC.

    However, I know you like to cheer for Oakland (can we say 4-12) so more power to you.

    I didn’t say the Chiefs were deserving of the playoffs this season. They certainly were not. However, they were more worthy than the Patriots, and that’s a matter of record.

    Who gives a crap how Tom Brady plays. Have you seen him?!?

    He’s HOT. Clearly, that’s all that matters.

    Tom Brady looks like a cross between a dumb jock and the slow kid.

    Did I mention he looks stupid?

    Bobby, no loving on the Colts. They are the fruits of the Devil. They’ll make you wear the mark of the beast.

    Peyton’s ego is out of proportion with his accomplishments.

    No Incredipeter…….the Raiders are the fruits of the Devil.

    You can’t just whip out a sports entry without giving me some kind of warning. You KNOW how I feel about these things! 😉

    I despise the Steelers.

    Technically, I despise Steeler’s fans. While admittedly there is something vaguely endearing about their slavish loyalty. And yes they may not be as inherently rude as say *coff* Eagles fans *coff*. Nevertheless, Steelers fans still are whiny entitled little beeotches and I hope Denver thrashes them 147 – 0.

    You said it!

    How come men can’t admit when another man is good-looking? Don’t hate Tom because he’s beautiful.

    Well you know what they say in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. And that white stuff on top of chicken shit …is still chicken shit.

    When I was doing the morning show on 101.5 Krock, in Manhattan, I was pretty excited to get that job right up until I talked to my little brother. He told me that doing the morning show in Manhattan is like being the head cow milker in an amish community….anyone can do it, it just happens to be you right now.

    What I’m saying is, out of all of the teams in the AFC West, the chef’s SHOULD have been at the top, not near the top, but at the top. I’m excited to see Dick leave because I think it will rejuvinate the team and make for a better season next year.

    As for my Raiders…well we have been looking forward to next year for a long time. BUT if you want to talk about superbowl appearences..well Lets see you guys went to that one in the 60’s and then you went to ….No that was the Raiders, Oh but when Montanna was playing for KC you went to 4 superbow…..no that was the 49ers….So I’m thinking KC has been in one superbowl in 40 years….is that right?

    That’s absolutely correct. No one can call me a fair weather fan. I love the Chiefs even though they haven’t won a playoff game since 1991. I’m sweet like that.

    How many times have we been at the top of our division and then choked. Just like the Colts. The only difference is that when we choke, Trent Green man’s up and takes responsibility.

    I sorta see your point, but NO self respecting Chief’s fan would EVER EVER root for Denver. Even if you do rationalize it with the AFC West logic.

    Don’t pick on Brady, he’s a kick ass quarterback.

    3 Super Bowl victories in 4 years
    2 Super Bowl MVP’s
    Brady deserves everything he gets…If he had T. Owens, J. Rice, R. Waters and Coach Walsh, as Montana had, he might of won 7 straight Super Bowls. Brady is a true Hall of Famer, he took no-names to 3 Super Bowls, and won. Ask Jim Kelley how hard that is?

    You said “Some of the starters didn’t even bother to ATTEND the away games at the end of the season. It’s an unheard of level of un-commitment and un-follow-through.”

    Obviously, you don’t follow NFL football as much as you’d like to think you do – resting starters for every meaningless end-of-season game is something every team does. The last time a team rested starters for 3 weeks was Philadelphia – last year. And they won the NFC.

    [Incredipete’s response: I don’t believe any game is meaningless, because each week you “rest” you lose momentum that might have carried you to victory.]

    [Rest of post deleted for being incredibly mean in a personal attack, for no reason, because someone at 12.233.24.2 thinks that it’s ok to be personal when they read an opinion about football.]

    Bobby: I agree with you 100% re: the Raiders being the fruit of the devil.

    HRT: You must despise me then cuz I LURVE the Steelers. Neener, neener neeeeeeenerrrrrrr!!!!!
