The Blind Squirrel's End Zone Dance

Watching the Colts-Jaguars game last night, yours truly experienced a rare, very rare, emotion. I felt vindicated.

More than once at the Herald I wrote that the primary difference between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as NFL quarterbacks was a matter of circumstance and their adaptation to same. That is, if Manning played for a team with an actual defense, he could manage games and win titles as Brady had, and if Brady played with instructions to score as many points as possible, he do just that and set NFL passing records in the bargain.

Here we are in the middle of the 2007 season, and my theory has actually happened in real time. There couldn't be better proof that Brady's performance against the Dolphins and Manning's performance against the Jaguars last weekend.

It's weird to right as a sports opinionist, but it does happen. And one thing I learned many years ago is that no will point it out if you don't. If that be gloating, well, consider it a grain of ego on a beach of well-deserved abuse for being wrong.
