Defining Peyton’s Career

I watched the Indy-Pats game last night, and going into that game I knew it was going to define Peyton Manning’s career. He was 5-6 as a starter, and just couldn’t seem to shake the ghosts of his past. He was always labeled a quarterback who couldn’t win the big game, unlike his opponent Tom Brady who was 12-1 as a starter and a proven winner and big game player. When the game was on the line with 2 minutes left, Manning did what he needed to do. His team stepped up and gave him a good performance, which was just as important. Lets face facts here though, Manning wasn’t going to go very far throwing 1 TD and 5 INTs like he did the last 2 playoff games. I know you can’t put all the blame on a QB for a loss, but you certainly can factor him into your win or loss. Manning did what he needed to do to win the game, and his team did the rest. A very impressive game thats for sure.
