In Response to Re: Luck Looks Sensational Again : If Luck beats the Pats by passing for 330 yards and 4TDs, why hate the guy for that? What made me dislike Peyton Manning was his propensity to whine and make excuses whenever the Pats beat the Colts. It was also his constant grandstanding at the line of scrimmage on every play, with his numerous gyrations. I can't hate Eli Manning, even though he's beaten the Pats in those two gut-wrenching SB losses. The guy did his job. Eli doesn't grandstand, or whine and make excuses, whenever he loses...like big brother Peyton.

What we have here is a failure to communicate. Let me be clear, I hate the Colts. I live in Indiana, and have put up with talk of Peyton Manning's greatness for 13 years. I'm sick of it. First of all, he's not that great because he has a PS record of what? Something like 9-10? And the year they won the SB he was mediocre at best, and they wouldn't have even gotten past Baltimore if Ray Lewis hadn't tipped that should be/would have been INT into a completion. Second, all the Colts fans are hoping to just press the "reset" button and have Peyton Manning II. This is very unlikely, yet they believe it, and after listening to talk about Manning for 13 years, now it's "Andrew Luck" and etc. What you aren't getting is that I have the unique problem of having to listen to this crap day in and day out in the local media, at work--wherever I go. That qualifies me to be able to take the position I'm taking and feel completely comfortable with it. As far as Eli goes, I disliked him before he even threw a pass in the NFL. For one thing, he plays for the Giants, who I have disliked for 25 years, another thing is he's Peyton's brother, and more than that, he's a prima-donna that refused to play for the team that drafted him because mommy and daddy wanted him to play under the big lights in NY. Now he's been "adopted" by all the Colts fans because their own team is lousy, and they somehow think Eli beating TB is some kind of sick justice. Both times he's won he's gotten nothing but lucky. There was the Tyree once in a century catch (with holding that wasn't called), then there was Gronkowski tearing up his ankle, and Welker not catching the pass--among other things--and he wouldn't even have been there if Kyle Williams hadn't made the stupid, bonehead play of all time in Frisco muffing a punt that he had no business being anywhere near to begin with. And yet, as Colts fans tell me, I'm supposed to give Eli his "just dos". Not here. Unless you live around it friend, you just have no idea. I loathe the Colts, I loathe the Giants, and if they went 1-15 it would be one win too many. I don't wish them any ill off the field, but burying them with 20 sacks per game for the rest of their careers when they're on the field would be the ticket. Hopefully my feelings on this are made clear.
