Up for Debate: Super legacies in the making

Friday, February 3, 2012 at 1:46am

What would a win on Sunday do for the following: Eli Manning's legacy versus Peyton Manning's, considering the number of rings each has and Peyton's current questionable status; Bill Belichick's status among the greatest coaches; and Tom Brady's status among the greatest quarterbacks?

Great series of questions.
Brady, if he wins, will have 4 rings, as does Montana and Bradshaw. A 3- way tie.
Quite a feat.
Eli will always be Peyton's younger bro. So, what?
As far as great QB's, Joe Namath is on tonight on FOX.
He'll always be the coolest QB who ever played the game.
You gotta respect a man who stays out until 4:00am drinking and chasing broads the night before the big game...guaranteed a win, agianst Unitas, and did it!

Good morning, Nashville.

I agree with Dargent7.

Unlike many others, I'm looking forward to a wardrobe malfunction re: Maddonna's skank suit....let it all hang out, baby!

L'ner: enjoyed the comments over on the 754# marijuana bust.
I'm with you. They'll store the sh** for 1 year until trial, (some will be pilfered) then burn it.
What a waste of a beneficial herb that can treat 70% of mankinds' ills.
And Eli Lilly, Merck, and Pizer "manufacture" sh** that will kill you, legally.

Just to further irritate the southern folk, SB Sunday is all about Michigan.
Madonna was born in Bay City/ Saginaw, Mich. and Brady went to U-M, Ann Arbor.
Eat it!

d7 - Your scores sound good! I'll go with the Pats., also.

By: yogiman on 2/3/12 at 8:29

The only ones who cares who wins are the ones with money bet on the game.

By: bfra on 2/3/12 at 8:37

Wrong again! But, my money is already on the Pats..

Loner, it's some sort of double standard to have her embarrass and humiliate him just because he does not believe the way she does. I mean, think about this: If I own a restaurant and a gay person comes in, am I allowed o say "hey, I do not agree with your life style or your views on sex, so I'm refusing to serve you and get your butt out of my establishment". DUH!!!! I hope he can prove that it was a violation of is civil rights to not be allowed to eat where HE CHOSE TO EAT. AFTER ALL, ITS A FREE COUNTRY!
Old sid makes her hypocritical stand for a man that would demonize others.

I am not betting on any of them, because I enjoy the game. I like both teams, but I am leaning toward the Giants. If the Patriots win, I will still relish their victory. It is the game that counts.

By: Loner on 2/3/12 at 9:19

Like I said, I'll be watching...looking for Madonna's wardrobe malfunction....at my age, she still looks damn good...too bad she's whacked out....big fan of Jewish mysticism.

It is my hope after this Sunday to have enough information to finish the last
paragraph of my future best seller: "Jewish stars of the NFL"!

By: Captain Nemo on 2/3/12 at 9:37

Stars of David? lol

By: govskeptic on 2/3/12 at 10:24

Good one Capt: Title change under consideration.

By: Loner on 2/3/12 at 10:49

Gov....we took a vote...Loner is welcome here....get used to it, baby.

Tebow, a local football star, is jogging down the street when he sees a building on fire. A woman is standing three floors up on ledge holding her pet cat in her arms.
'Hey, lady, 'yells Tebow, 'Throw me the cat.'

'No, 'she cries, 'It's too far.'

'I play football, I can catch him.'

The smoke is pouring from the windows, and finally, the woman waves to Tebow, kisses her cat goodbye, and then tosses the moggy down onto the street. Tebow keeps his eye on the cat as it comes hurtling down toward him. The feline, bounces off an awning and Tebow runs into the street and catches the cat. He jumps six feet into the air and makes a spectacular one handed catch. The crowd that has gathered to watch the fire, breaks into cheers. Tebow does a little dance, lifts the cat above his head, wiggles his knees back and forth, then Tebow ' spikes' the cat into the pavement.

Sounds about right, after the way he played in his last game.

D'Argent: Earl Morrall was the Colts' starting quarterback in that Super Bowl against Namath. Yes, Unitas came in during the 2nd half, but he couldn't save the Colts from losing to the Jets.
