Wow, what a great game to win. We've had a few of these nail biters this year, and we've found a way to win them all. That's the mark of a championship caliber team.
There were some big time pluses in this game that's for sure. The first one was the three defensive players that made a huge difference for the team tonight. Big time props to Cato June, Bob Sanders and Freddy Keiaho. Cato was just in the right place at the right time a couple times, but no matter how lucky you may be, that's 2 big, big plays he made. Bob Sanders is an absolute animal. He was everywhere tonight. If he still has lingering pains, it definitley didn't show last night, talk about energy. He's going to be the best saftey in the NFL in a few seasons, mark my words on that one. Nice to see him come up with that pick too. Pizza guy made a topic about Freddy, and he is definitley correct about him. He made one tackle on Falk I believe it was that just made the crowd go silent. They were loud because Falk caught the pass (hehe) and they thought he had open field but then Kieaho just came up, lifited him and slammed him down in a swift motion. Now that's how you tackle, great job rook.
Marvin Harrison. What more can you say? Is this the best catch we've ever seen Marvin make. I can't remember who we were playing, but I remember one in about the same spot as that one where he just layed out and made a one handed grab while somehow keeping his feet inbounds. Marvin was great tonight, and how about that taunting penalty. That was funny to see, but I love when Marvin and Peyton are able to release and celebrate a little bit. Marvin, after a catch like that, you can spike the ball as damn hard as you want. Put a little dance on it too if you want, in fact, after making a catch like that do whatever the hell you please.
Peyton was superb last night. We've been spoiled by his lack of interceptions all year that when he did throw one today it was strange too see. Its like every time he makes a pass you try to judge how far downfield its going and you just automatically assume that there will be a reception at that point. That is just how spoiled we are to be able to have a quarterback like Peyton. UB talked last week about how some of us don't fully appreciate the greatness of Manning, but I sure do. God are we lucky.
Let the media circus begin.
