    The other part of that question is this: Hypothetically, Manning wins 2 or more rings in Denver and breaks virtually every passing record in Denver. Does he go into the HOF and is he remembered as a Colt or a Bronco. I think Manning plays until he feels he can't go anymore at a top level and/or there is a talent drop off around him that causes him to carry a team on his shoulders, something that he's probably not ready to do as a 40-something QB.

    He will deff play next year to get most pass yards and hopefully a 3rd ring.

    He will probably be around 20tds short of 600 after next year, but leaving as back back SB Champs might trump 600.

    He has played ball since he could walk. He knows once he hangs it up its gone for good. His passion for the game will not let him walk away easily. He has played ball longer then he has been married had kids drove a car went to school. Any one that has passion for a sport knows once you let it go it's gone forever. It's not like gold or tennis that you can play at an old age. I struggle giving up playing baseball I am 34 just play in rec leagues but I know when I quit that's it. My kids are getting older so my days are numbered.

    That was both hilarious and sooooo frickin' nasty at the same time! He puked on the center's hand and the ball if I remember correctly.

    Talk about getting help from the referees

    Did anyone notice the referee taking the 49er defender to the ground on Sanders' early TD? The announcers were too busy gushing about Sanders "speed" and Manning's passing to comment on it, but the player who was covering Sanders was cut to the ground by a referee, allowing Sanders to get open.

    Yes we all saw it! They even replayed it on Sunday night and pointed it out.

    You make it sound as if it was deliberate on the part of the referee. What actually happened was that Sanders ran his route so that the referee acted as a screen.

    Yes. Chris Collinsworth pointed it out as SOP by receivers.

    This is what I was going to tell the OP

    If people paid attention the reason it was highlighted was because Chris C said WRs been doing this for a long time.

    I have seen it done to us on many occasions tho I usually notice it happening to a LB. Seen it done to us on many occasions.

    My guess is it happens allot every single year.

    Yeah I'm guessing a lot of short passing plays try to use it. I think it just looked worse because Sanders got so close that the ref tried to get out of the way and slipped causing the defender to get taken out. Smart play because refs are part of the field.

    I don't think it's dirty at all. Referee's are considered parts of the field. It's kinda the same thing as using the sideline to your advantage.
