    Win or Lose, the Media Already Has It's Peyton Story Written

         The buildup all week is to set up this Brady/Manning match-up as "Round 15", implying that the winner of this encounter decides once and for all the argument over who is the better QB. The media wants it this way because it knows that Brady holds a commanding 10-4 edge in head to head match-ups, has a much better record in playoff play than Manning (Brady is 18-7, while Peyton is 10-11), and leads in SB rings, 3-1. It sees an opportunity here, because the Broncos are perceived as a much better team than the Patriots, and are playing at home. So, the story will go as follows:

    1.) Broncos Win: Whether deserved or not, Peyton will receive the lion's share of the credit for the win, and will be declared the better QB over Brady. Peyton will be hailed as the greatest, most cerebral QB of all-time. After all, Peyton was the winner of "Round 15"!!

    2.) Patriots Win: If the unthinkable occurs, and the Pats somehow overcome Manning, the refs, and home field advantage, the credit will grudgingly go to BB for the win. All week long, the theme to explain away Brady's better head to head and playoff record has been that Brady played on better teams, with better defenses, had BB as his coach, with a dash of "spygate" thrown into the mix. So, the media's concocted excuse for Manning will be that once again the fatal flaw of another great Peyton team was it's defense...having to play without Von Miller, and it's top CB, Chris Harris. Further blame will be laid at the feet of head coach John Fox, who will be said to have been outcoached by the evil emperor underneath the hoodie.  

         Folks...the bottom line here is that the media has picked it spot for the final match-up, in which Peyton holds all of the advantages. The Broncos are pretty heavily favored (when was the last time that the Patriots took the field in a playoff game as underdogs...let alone 5.5 point dogs??). The Broncos shattered the offensive records of the 2007 Patriots...and are being perceived as a "dream team" offense.

         So...my recommendation to Tom Brady and the Pats is to go old school. Harken back to what it was like in 2001, and come out and play as a team. Be physical and be determined. For Tom personally, harken back to the 2000 draft when you were the 199th overall pick. Harken back to being doubted when compared to the likes of the six QBs chosen ahead on you that year, and to Drew Henson having been "The Peoples Choice" at Michigan. Think about the QB controversy with Drew Bledsoe. Think about facing up against "The Greatest Show on Turf" which, in some ways, is similar to this Denver team. Think about having to win those tough championship games in Pittsburgh. You will never have a greater opportunity to silence the critics and haters, than today, Tom. Just sling it, young man.

         Go Pats!!!!

    Tex... we hear it all the time..

    Brady wins.. it is because he has a better team and the best HC of them all.  He gets some begrudging credit.  Brady loses, even if the D gives up points and drive, Brady didn't score enough.

    Peyton wins....  well, it is all the doing of Peyton regardless of how he plays.  Like getting the MVP in his lone SB win when he had all those pics.  Peyton loses, it is the defense's fault.

    Well said. Manning can do no wrong and it's not right. Even the game earlier in the season where Brady lead that comeback win, manning only took a little bit of heat and was right back in the spot light again. How many chances are the media going to give this guy?

         Peyton has absolutely no excuses in this one. He has the better team, at least on paper. He has an embarrassment of riches weapon-wise on offense. He's been blessed with a perfect weather day in Denver...almost as if he were still playing in his dome sweet dome. He has no crown noise to contend with. The depleted Patriots are playing without their two starting DTs, which includes their best defender, Vince Wilfolk. They are playing without their leading tackler in LB Jerod Mayo, and without run stuffing LB Brandon Spikes. I repeat: PEYTON HAS NO EXCUSES!!!! This is a game that he and his team should win.

    Absolutely true. And truth is this isn't the first time he has faced us in the playoffs where we were dealing with some serious injuries - he didn't win those games either - yet all was forgiven the next regular season when he put up monster stats. 

    He absolutely should win this game, if he doesn't he should be embarrassed. He's at home, he has the most weapons any quarterback has ever had to play with, the weather will be perfect and we come limping into this game...honestly they should beat us by 14 points, but will they? Manning is so unpredictable in big games its laughable. I still can't believe he threw that pick in that Super Bowl.

    Seyton Manning is just overrated by a world teeming with football imbeciles.

    Well said Tex and if I was coach John Fox, I would be burning inside as he has been non-existent as far as the Media are concerned.  Perhaps Fox is irrelevant, I can't say for sure.  However, I can't remember a big game where one of the Coaches is hardly ever mentioned.  

     

    BTW, I watched the "Brady 6" again yesterday and was once again moved about the 199th Draft Pick Vs the Number One Sure Fire Can't miss Pick. 

     

    This Patriots Team has Heart and So does Brady.  I'm looking forward to seeing them do their thing once again.  :)

     

    Go Patriots!

    TP, I have to agree his story has already been written... especially when you have the national media writing excuse pieces like this.

     This game reminds me of the 2006 AFC Title game in Indy, in which the Colts were favored, the Pats had next to nothing at WR, and their defense was depleted due to injury. In that one, the Colts barely won...thanks to some well timed flags. We'll see what happens in this one.

    Lots of Denver stories and Manning stories because they have to use them by today or they are no longer relevant.

    Right now pooting is 10-11 all time in the playoffs, 1-1 in SBs. The dude has been the master choker, espceially with all he talent he has had at his fingertips.

    TB has done more with less, and is 18-7 in the playoffs, taken his team to the AFCCG 8 times, SB 5 times, and has won 3 SBs

    Pooting is way behind

    The media can slobber all over Peyton as much as they want.  Fact is, TB has 3; PM has one.  So even if PM was to win today AND the SB - he's still one behind the greatest QB evah - one Tom Brady.
