My comment from a 3/11 piece in Pro Football Talk. PFT rules. Great content, great writing by Florio, et al. And always seem to be breaking the news instead of re-treading. Great, respectful and insightful comments from knowledgeable interested fans, too.
Here’s my comment (cut and paste first;) Hey, it’s MY blog.
Only in America can a person be paid $26 million to miss an entire year of work after pulling wool over brass’ eyes, getting away with an on-the-job injury.
And, as an encore, now drives up his asking price to hit his “comfort” zone, totally untested. And people bite.
Irsay & Manning deserved ea other. Robbing shamefully the spotlight during XLVI from Eli. That won’t be forgotten nor shouldn’t by the public. Actually, it probably already has been forgotten.
If Peyton wasn’t about money, he would have restructured his contract and you know what?
He’d have more rings than endorsements.
I hope Peyton in his next place does not win another ring. He doesn’t deserve it.
