Jeez, guys. I love Champ as much as the next guy but,
deal with it. Accept it. Hes lost a step.
That doesnt mean hes not good.
My problem with it is that he was so good all year, and very good in the first game against the Ravens. Why the bad game in this big spot? While on the other side we killed their DBs in the first game and couldn't separate in this one. Remember how Decker abused that guy in the regular season game against them? And then nothing doing this time around. The whole thing is just weird, and makes one wonder if something was up with Manning or perhaps maybe the cold was really bothering him.
