Congratulations to Peyton Manning for winning his second NFL MVP title
in a row. In a week dominated by discussion of the classless, selfish play of Randy Moss, it's good to see a player who epitimizes class, leadership, team-oriented and the ability to bring up the game of everyone around you win this prestigious honor.
I also had to love Peyton's comments about going back to Foxboro to face the Patriots Sunday afternoon. When asked about the last couple of games there, he didn't duck the question or make excuses. He accepted he hadn't played his best and said he wanted the challenge of going up there and trying to get a win. He didn't give the Pats bulletin board material, he showed respect for a team that has won the past two times. But that doesn't mean he's satisfied and will just give up and throw in the towel. If anything, I have a feeling he is working that much harder to get find a way to take care of business against the Patriots.
Mark my words--the game between the Colts and Patriots is for the AFC Championship. Whoever wins this one is going to the Super Bowl.
