The Denver Bronco’s offense is #1 in all of Football while the Seattle Seahawks Defense is also #1. It used to be that good defense stopped good offense, but that was when you could manhandle receivers – not anymore. Seattle is a defensive force, but Denver has the offensive force – Peyton Manning… and Colts Nation, myself included will be rooting for our boy, Peyton. I have always rooted for him, except for the time the Colts kicked his butt, but if the Colts can’t be in the Super Bowl, I’m glad Peyton is and I am cheering for him.
This is to cement his legacy as the second-best quarterback ever! Who’s Number one? Use your eyes. It is none other than Sir Dan Marino – the right arm of God (Koufax was the left arm)!
Go Peyton – we will always love you! You built Lucas Oil Stadium, and we are eternally grateful.
Jim Irsay said it best:
“I just couldn’t be more excited,” Irsay told The Star Wednesday. “This is what we were hoping it was going to be – a win-win situation for everybody. I’m so happy for him. We’ve already talked this week about getting him some extra (Super Bowl) tickets and I told him, ‘You’ve got it, buddy. Go get ‘em. Go win it.’ I wish him all the best.
“I couldn’t be happier because he will forever be a Colt and a part of so many years of greatness here. I’m just really rooting for him to get that second ring. That would be awesome.
“And we’re obviously on track; actually we’re past where we thought we would be with Andrew (Luck). If Peyton had stayed, it would have been a joke with what we could have been able to field in 2012. It would have been crazy to think we could have put a team together with Peyton.
“It was just an impossibility. Now we have the perfect situation, where we’re way ahead of schedule and Andrew is achieving things beyond our wildest expectations, and Peyton has a chance to get that second Super Bowl ring. It’s been a win-win and that’s what we were hoping for.”
I also like Pete Carroll (even if he is cheater) and the Seahawks. I like really, really like Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, Derrick Coleman, Marshawn Lynch and Golden Tate (ND). I am going to enjoy the game, but my heart will be with Peyton. Colts, I mean Broncos 27; Seahawks 24. Go Horse!
