Wouldn't this make it number 48 for fourth quarter comebacks?

Well, the "comeback" was 4 points in the beginning of the 4th quarter in a game that any sane person really knew the outcome of anyway.

It's not like it was a game ending winning TD drive that won it for him.

We are very fortunate to have won that game. We are going to see another very good football team next week on the road...I hope we don't overlook that team either.

I know what you mean. If we're close in the third quarter I am feeling confident. If we score 24, I'm outright cocky.

The panthers are a bit underrated but i would not use the term "very good team" to describe them, they are 2-6 after all

Because we came back in the fourth quarter, the very definition of come back in the NFL.

So a normal quarterback, and people would be pleased with a 4th qtr comeback.

But since it's Manning, it's weak right?

Do his TD's count for 5 points?

If you think comebacks should be determined by some different standard, then the whole 4th quarter comeback statistic would be completely different.

It's a road game, and Panthers have loss by less than a touchdown in all their games outside of 1. The game they lost was a Thursday night game too.

They should have beat the Falcons minus a some bull**** happening at the end of the game. And Chicago.

We should win, but I don't think this is by any means a cake walk.

Because we were behind in the fourth quarter (we had fewer points than the other team [http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/less]), and then we finished the game with MORE (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/more) points than the other team.

Elway has comebacks on record that were similar in nature.

It's a record and records have parameters used as qualifiers

Yes it technically was a comeback. But I completely agree with those who are downplaying the comeback. After all we only trailed in this game for what a total of a minute and a half? This comeback was more the result of a momentary lapse in execution than anything else. Other than that we were in control the whole game.

No, he tied Dan Marino at 47. Today with his comeback (or score in the wee minutes of the fourth to erase a 3 point deficit and become positively tilted in favor of winning the aforementioned game, but was too soon to be called a comeback as there is a magical timeline for when the fourth quarter is actually a "fourth quarter" come back that only level 47 dwarfen giants is aware of, situation). I mean really, either way you say it, it is just semantics.

But in the stat books, which has no bias towards mythical space-time relationships, it was his 48th "comeback"

The Joker
11-05-2012, 12:43 AM
Yep, you can bet that Elway and Marino had plenty of comebacks that were far from epic as well.

Congrats to him.

And I am uninterested in a qualitative argument about the degree of awesomness a comeback has. I am just trying to determine if statistically Manning now owns the record for most fourth quarter comebacks. On sportscenter they were saying he tied Marino, but I thought he did that on MNF football, so I don't know.

Kidding aside this was a very important win for us. Early game, playing a good team in a must win situation, behind in the forth quarter with the opponent finding new energy in a must win game, us not playing great (dropped balls) yet still finding a way to win. This says a lot about our team this year.

Any other qb not named Elway or Manning and we lose this game IMO

I believe that yesterday is exactly how you should play a game like that, we were up against a team we knew we should beat and we played comfortably good enough to win and maintain control of the game. The offense was good enough, special teams were good enough and defense was good enough - as Bubblegum Tate would say, a globetrotter always saves the good football for the final minute.

We don't need to dominate every game like we did against New Orleans, we just need to be good enough to beat lesser opponents and then save the dominance for good opponents.

I was never really nervous about the win yesterday after we went up 10-3, we overcame some individual mistakes and just kept on moving along.

This the type of game good teams win and average teams lose. On the road, facing adversity, we found a way to win and didn't panic.

What I liked most is Manning not backing down - he went at the exact same guy that picked him twice and had trust that Decker was going to come down with the catch in a 1on1. I know it's Peyton, but just saying most Quarterbacks in this league would have lost a bit of trust or shied away from that throw.

They were saying on the radio Manning knew it was record setting, because he ran down the field and got the ball from Dreessen after the TD pass.
