Peyton Manning--CHAMPION

Okay, now it's time for all the haters to move on. New Orleanian Peyton Manning is a champion.

There is a Super Bowl ring in the Manning family. Archie can now live out his life peacefully.

Now they don't have to hear about how the Mannings are losers. How Peyton could never beat Florida. How Peyton could never beat Brady. How Peyton didn't win the Heisman.

Now, Peyton has something that Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel and Charles Woodson do not have. A Super Bowl ring AND an MVP award.


If anybody but the Saints was going to win it all, I'm glad it was the Colts. And not just because they beat the Bears (Finishing What Katrina Started). And not just because of Peyton. Reggie Wayne is a local guy too (even though he went to "DA U"--of course, that was at the disastrous end of the Gerry DiNardo days), Booger McFarland (LSU) now has two rings, and Joseph Addai (LSU) now has a national championship ring and a Super Bowl ring.

I just can't believe I'm so happy for a guy who went to Tennessee and whose dad and brother went to Ole Miss.

Now all of the "He'll never win a big game" people have to find somebody else to pick on. Any suggestions?

Peyton and the Colts finished what Mrs. O'Leary's cow didn't.

Manning didn't need ANY rings to validate what type of quarterback he is. Is Dan Marino less of an all-time great b/c he never won a Super Bowl? What about Jim Kelly? Fran Tarkenton?

I posted a cartoon about Peyton Manning for anyone who's interested. It's on my blog, http://tornoe.blogspot.com.

Ron Mexico aka Michael Vick?

Yea, let's pick on Vick. I was at thrift store recently and saw #7 Atlanta Jersey on the rack. 3 or 4 years ago that was the hottest item around. Now you can't even give them away at a thrift store for $3.00.

Yeah, but tagging Vick implies that he's good
