Green Bay mistakenly believed Indy would run a play on 2nd-and-goal with 2:40 remaning in the 4th quarter, so the Pack didn't call time out and the game clock ran down to the 2-minute warning. How did that happen? The Pack bought the performance of Peyton Manning, who went into his usual routine of pointing, waving, and general gesticulating at the line of scrimmage. Indy Star writer Phil Richards notes that Manning "carried on as if he was leading calisthenics." That's what he usually looks like, Phil. The only thing more annoying to many football fans would be hearing Tony Little screaming "Technique!! Technique!!!" into their ears . . .

The Vikings' quarterback seemed to regress in his second season. Did that tell us more about the player, or the Minnesota offensive scheme?
