    Pretty good stuff. Tony Romo is probably the best golfer in the NFL but I'm glad we have a QB that is the best on the field.

      I have a feeling I would hate Manning outside of the football field.

        Sure as heck didn't scare the Seahawks defense on the football field....

            I don't know, he seems like he'd be pretty cool to hang out with generally.

            I'd hate to be a co-worker of his hanging outside of work though. Always annoyed by the people who would constantly talk about work when you are at the bar.

              Manning's first task was to fix Latimer's admittedly brutal swing. First he tweaked the placement of his feet, then adjusted the position of the ball in relation to his feet. Finally, Manning noticed a curve in Latimer's swing so severe that he made Latimer turn a full 90 degrees from a normal swing position (imagine standing with your back to the direction to want the ball to go in). The shift allowed Latimer's backward-looking shots to sail smoothly down the fairway. "All of the sudden I'm hitting it close to the hole," Latimer said.
              I don't really care for golf, but tried to play it years ago when I worked as a bartender at a golf resort. At the end of every golf season, the instructor would open up group lessons for free for employees. I took a couple of them and my swing looks nothing like a golf swing, but I could hit the ball straight. So I can sympathize with Latimer, and Peyton has a second career as a amateur golf instructor.

                I got a feeling Decker felt that way.

                  And your point would be? Yeah, we get it already. He had a bad game. It sucks but it happens. The only thing we can do now is look ahead and try again.

                    I love golf, but just the nitpicking of what I am doing off the field, I could see it bugging me.

                      I love me some Peyton Manning.

                      It's amazing how guys like Elway and Manning raise the level of play of everyone they play with. I've always been fascinated by guys who are the consistent thread with a winning franchise, while literally every other player on the team comes and goes. You hear anecdotes about Peyton Manning, and you start to get a pretty good picture of how it happens. Even the guys that see him every day for years - who really develop a comfort zone with him - they seem to act almost nervous around him. They don't want to fail in his presence - at anything.

                      It makes you, as a fan, almost want to stop time! I remember watching Elway during his first few seasons, when I was a kid. I already started thinking, with a sense of dread, about how his career would someday be over. And while everything else in life seemed to pass in normal time, his career seemed like it lasted about five years. People think I'm joking when I tell them about how, at the end of the 80's, when I was trying to decide if I wanted to serve a Mormon mission, one of the main things I listed on the "con" side on my pro/con list was, "Missing two years of John Elway's prime!"

                      As the season went on last year, I found myself repeatedly telling my 15-year-old son to relish this experience - so try and absorb every minute of it. For a football fan (especially as a fan of the team for which Peyton Manning plays), it's artistry, in its purist form.

                        And this is why I just re-upped my NFL Rewind subscription. I am going to go back and watch every single game from last season again just so I can soak it all in another time.

                          Every single one?

                            I can dig this. Tough pill to swallow at the finish, but what a season! Some franchises go half a century without a single season like that.

                              Ok. I confess. Not the last one.
