Well, it’s a rematch from a few years back and everyone’s been sucking Eli Manning’s you know what since he’s won all his games on the road and since he beat Tom Brady and his Pats in the regular season and it the previous Superbowl. Before I tell you who I know is going to win, I want to put to rest one issue. That being whether or not Eli has passed Peyton Manning on who the better quarterback is. Let me tell you something, Peyton is hands down the best quarterback in the family. If Peyton Manning had the defense that Eli Manning had, Peyton would have won 4 Superbowls. Don’t come at me with Dwight Freeney. The Giants have had the best front 4 in the league for at least 4 years. They have a running game which Peyton never had. OK, time to move on to the big game. Picking this one is easy. The rule is that if you beat a team in the regular season, you lose to them in the playoffs. Hence, the Pats will take this. Look for G-men to be overconfident and get lit up early by Tom and his merry band of men. I know that Pats have a worse defense but their running game has picked up recently and we all know that Tom Brady is, well, Tom Brady. Not that much insight in this article but I’m telling you, take the Pats. Watch the game at home or even head out to the game. Surprisingly enough, it’s not sold out.
That’s right, folks, the Colts are officially on the clock. Although, they don’t need to look further than Stanford’s Andrew Luck. Don’t get me wrong, I love Peyton Manning. Drafting Luck is no disrespect to Manning. Manning is 35 years old. He will be 36 before the 2012 season begins. At best, he has 3 PRIME years remaining, and that’s if he is fully recovered from his neck injury. I have no problems with Luck sitting on the bench for a couple of years and taking notes form the best quarterback to ever play the game. Aaron Rogers watched Brett Favre. Carson Palmer watched Jon Kitna. Tom Brady watched Drew Bledsoe. The list goes on. Throwing a rookie quarterback into the fire has proven to be a mistake. Look at all the past qbs that have been disappointments: Jamarcus Russell, Vince Young, Akili Sith, Cade McCown. This past year has been an anomaly. The successes of Ponder, Dalton and Super Cam is something I’ve never seen. Nevertheless, you’re going to hear a lot of jibberish about the Colts taking Luck. They shouldn’t taken Robert Griffin. They shouldn’t draft a running back. They shouldn’t draft defense. They shouldn’t trade their pick. Draft the kid, let him sit for a couple of years. Luckily for us, we still have a month of playoffs, upsets, and the Superbowl coming up. If you’re team is still in the hunt, don’t watch them from your couch. Take you son, your buddy, your wife, or just go yourself and support them live.
