Well, to resurrect a Reagan-era joke.... then when Peyton Manning goes home Sunday night after racking up 100 pts, his wife, Ashley, can say "Is that you, Wilt?"
I wonder if Aaron will cut and paste most of that analysis for Brees and the Saints vs. Lions next week. After the Bears, Brees needs 752 (iirc) to break Marino's record of passing yds. Since the Saints are all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, I could see Coach Payton letting Brees throw all day.
Has there been a FO article on the pros and cons of play action? Can one use it so much that it ceases to help?
I thought I remember reading somewhere that the Colts' stretch play was very hard to defend, as it delayed the moment of knowing whether it was a run or play action.
Is Johnson capable of NFL brilliance? Burst will ultimately tell the tale.
