Thanks for letting me know what theonion says.  I'm sure that knowledge might be useful for something.  I simply don't know and see it as a waste of time seems how HGH wasn't illegal anyway.  Carry on.

I dislike hypocrites and liers.  He willingly threw his wife under the bus much like Roger Clemens did with his wife.  The sports world is full of them.

But you still vote..... oh never mind.

Great defensive game by Denver Broncos, Cam Newton was pressured the entire game.

I can't get over how freaking huge Cam Newton is.  he is a freak.

essentially you have a TE with RB speed and WR moves playing QB with a Cannon for an arm.

Newton got rattled early and often.  He looked tired and dejected by mid 3rd quarter.

I didn't have a real rooting interest for this game, but started off leaning slightly toward the Panthers.  Then Newton started running his mouth in the press, so I wanted to see him shut up.  Then Aquib Talib started playing like he did for the Bucs, running his mouth and making stupid penalties.  The defenses were impressive, but the offenses also played lousy. The net result was a dull, boring game.

LOL

That was how I was seeing it too!

In the end, I wanted to see the old guy win

I guess I'm getting old, but I miss the days when professional ball players were expected to act professionally.  For example, the Bucs had Lee Roy Selmon, Derrick Brooks and Warrick Dunn, who were all classy guys and a credit to the community (even if Brooks and Dunn did go to FSU  :))

I am a die hard Bronco fan so I am happy with the end result.  The Bronco offense was lousy with red zone offense and no third down conversions.  I am fine with a little celebrating after big plays but people like Talib need to stfu.  The late hits need to go as well.  I hope Manning retires and becomes an afterthought.

I thought you were a N. Iowa fan?

The idea that Manning would ever become an "afterthought" is ridiculous. Despite this season, he is one of if not the greatest regular season quarterback of all time. Just look at the stats

North Iowa?  I don't follow them one way or the other.
