Welcome to the MWO -- the Manning World Order. Did you ever think you would live in a sports generation were both of the Manning brothers are winners, the Red Sox have won two World Series in the last couple of years and the Boston Celtics are good again. Like every truth you have ever known in the world of sports has been thrown out the window. Having Gomer break through two years ago makes the Messiah’s win a little bit more tolerable.
But not much.
As much disdain as most of you have for the Messiah, you have to give the kid his due as a Super Bowl champion and MVP. Not every quarterback in the NFL could scramble around and heave a ball into the air to have his receiver make a miracle catch. Not every quarterback in the NFL can complete a pass to Plaxico Burress when the defender has fallen to the ground. No, you have to give him his credit as an NFL quarterback and think of him among some of the great quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl such as Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson and Mark Rypien.
You can no longer poke fun at the Messiah, as his name will go down with some of the greats who have won the Super Bowl MVP award, such as Larry Brown, Dexter Jackson and Desmond Howard.
