Mile High Minute...Blind Dog Edition

They say even a blind dog finds a bone once in awhile, and everyone's favorite inbred Dan Marino clone found one last night in Indianapolis. I decided to post this picture of Tom Brady instead of Peyton Manning because I didn't want to scare any kids who may be reading.

Somehow the Pats went from total domination of the Colts in the first half to being completely outmatched in the 2nd. I don't like the Patriots, but I took this one pretty hard. I have to keep reminding myself that Marino made it to the big game once...and never returned.

On the plus side, the Bears put a stop to this New Orleans Saints nonsense in dominating fashion. I like New Orleans, and consider myself fortunate to have seen the city before the hurricane destroyed it, but seriously, rooting for them because a hurricane hit their city is about the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. Most of the people pulling for the Saints this year didn't even know New Orleans still had a team a couple years ago.

Beyond that, is there any better commentary on how weak the NFL is now that a team that went 3-13 a year ago could get to the conference championship game this season? What happened to paying your dues? In proper sports, like baseball, it can take years to rebuild a franchise. Just further proof that the NFL's salary cap has completely watered down the sport.
