    Had a QB rating of 70 tonight vs a banged up New England defense. Generated only 14 points of offense.

    Mild weather compared to what he will experience in the middle of January, especially a home game in Denver.

    He averaged 3.2 yards per dropback tonight (122 yards on 38 attempts).

    Good luck, Denver.

    Drew is the same way. Without home field throughout, our season ends 1 road game.

    Technically the Saints are the same way. Drew has lead the Saints to scoring 32 and 36 points in his last 2 road playoff losses, plus a missed FG when he was with San Diego that would have given them a win in OT vs the Jets. He can't play special teams or defense, unfortunately.

    Probably. But Peyton is going to lose at home. Ouch.

    Peyton Manning's team averages 13.9 points per game in his 11 playoff losses. That's horrendous.

    He (Manning) didn't stand a chance against Brady and more importantly Belichick and his titanium balls "we'll take the wind" call in overtime, such a gutsy self assured cocky call in a career full of them. Loved it. Meanwhile Tommy Football throws for like 350 yards in whiffle ball into a leaf lower conditions and makes no big deal about it, crushes his post game look and probably his super model wife after......take notes men, that's how it's done.

    I only know of two head coaches that go against the grain, Bill Belichick and Sean Payton.

    I don't know if Sean Payton takes the ball of Drew Brees' hands in that circumstance, however.

    Peyton Manning just drove it down your throat on the previous drive against the wind (same direction).

    Bold is not the word for it. That was as crazy as going for it on the 4th and 2 at their own 28 vs Indy years ago.

    Belichick and Brady own Manning, the PA announcer said "cleanup on aisle Manning Pants" when Belichick said, sure give Manning the ball, we'll take the wind because I'm confident this guy doesn't have what it takes to win this game in these conditions.....totally got in his head.

    If Denver and New Orleans meet in the SB, and it snows the final score will be 9-6, no TD's.

    Drew went to college at Purdue, so he's played in a ton of cold weather games. As long as the running game continues to click, we should be ok in cold weather. It's when we have to rely strictly on the pass in the cold when the offense tends to bog down.
