    the indianapolis cult

    the colts fans obsession with peyton manning is a cross btwn the cult of stalin and gay.
    i'm glad that i can be a fan of an entire team rather than just worshipping at the feet of a very fallible qb with almost no clutch

    Re: the indianapolis cult

    Its pretty interesting that even people that consider belichick to have cheated almost unanimously consider him the greatest football mind of the last decade

    we all know that the media is looking- why havent they found a specific example of how "cheating" benifited the pats yet- theyve had years

    I'm trying to figure out how being a great mind and cheating must be mutually exclusive.  And doesn't the hero worship also apply to Brady?  I've yet to see anyone here be critical of his play.

     As  a long time pats fan I can say this .It wont last for ever here.The day will come when the pats dont make playoffs every year and in contention,then we all will see who the real fans are.I dont blame you for being a fan  of your team stick by the though thick and thin.

    Re: the indianapolis cult

    coldhardfootballfacts.com has a term for the Marino apologists who try to lay the blame on "no defense and no running game" for his never winning a Super Bowl: The Cult of Dan.

    The fact is that Marino was a pretty average (sometimes below-average) playoff QB, and that the Dolphins didn't run the ball well when he was there because they never really tried: Marino wanted to air it out, and Shula let him pretty much do whatever he wanted. Late in his career, when Jimmy Johnson told Marino that they were going to run the ball, Marino balked and he and JJ clashed repeatedly. As for the defenses, well, they weren't great, but they weren't ALL bad during his career either.

    The situation is a little different with Manning, since he's won a Super Bowl (with a big assist from the zebras--sorry, I had to mention it), but in those playoffs he really didn't play all that well over the four games, except for a few bursts of brilliance. It was a confluence of fortunate events that came together to help Indy get over the hump that January/February.

    That said, as much as I admire Manning's ability, and as much as I admire him as a person (seems like a very nice guy), I never cease to marvel at the excuses Colts fans--like Dolphins fans before them--will make on his behalf whenever Indy is bounced from the post-season. The fact that under Manning the Colts have gone "one and done" 7 times does not reflect well on him as a post-season QB. That fact simply cannot be spun enough so as to render Manning blameless (but Indy fans try; oh Lord, how they try).

    Re: the indianapolis cult

    Its Peyton vs. Brady all over again.

    Peyton is good in the regular season, superior in the statistical categories during the regular season. That I can admit, but look how that team is built. Its built to be run by Peyton, He calls the plays for pete sake. Ofcourse they no longer have a running game, Its all about passing with the Colts. Peyton has had a ton of good pass catchers over his career.

    Brady's number in the regular season don't truly compare to Manning's but Brady played in a more conventional offense for most of his career. In the Playoffs, Brady shines while Manning struggles, that you can't debate. Manning has been to two superbowls, winning one. Brady has been to 4, winning 3.

    You can use the injury exuse to your liking but for one season, Manning's weapons were brought down to the level of Brady's weapons prior to 07. Manning still had Wayne, still had Garcon, still had Addai and Brown. Three of the 4 are 1st round picks. Can you name the first rounders Brady had when he won his superbowls? Manning had Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison and Dallas clark in his one superbowl win. Superior weapons by far compared to the best Brady has had over the years.

    Heck, compare this year between the them both. Brady has 36 TD's to 4 picks AFTER loosing his Number 1 WR, having to play with rookies at the TE position, undrafted FA's at RB and two WR's coming off of Knee surgeries( tate and Welker). Manning had Wayne the entire year, Clark for 6 games, Brown played in 11 games, Garcon started 14 games( missing only two) and Colie played in 9 games. Manning had his weapons for a while, longer then most would like us to believe. His stats? 33 TD's and 17 INTs.

    Manning had 177 more pass attempts then Tom Brady, yet he couldn't match Brady's touchdown numbers.

    And before you tell me Manning let his RB's score in the goaline, realize that NE Pats RB's scored 18 touchdowns split between two Undrafted Free Agents compared to the Colts two first round draft choices who combined for 6 touchdowns on the ground.

    As of 2011, Brady is the better QB and its not that close. Overall, like I said in the beggining of this post. Manning has his regular season numbers, Brady is better in the post season. As a fan of my team, I'd take superbowl appearances/wins over regular season dominance.
