Has there ever been a more punchable face in the world?
And is there any value in believing that the Saints are going to be able to beat the Colts, saving us from a world where Gomer will be viewed as the best quarterback of his generation? We have two weeks to make the case for the Saints being able to stop the Colts and winning their first Super Bowl.
But it is not going to happen.
The Colts are going to win the Super Bowl. There is just no way around it. The Chargers seem to be the only team capable of shutting down Gomer at this point, but they treat non-Colts playoff games like Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie treat the Golden Globes – they just do not show up. (But at least Norv Turner got that extension.)
So the Colts get another cake-walk to the Super Bowl. At least the Saints should put up more of a fight than the Bears did a few years ago, but let’s not kid ourselves.
Look at what Gomer did. The Jets jumped out to a 17-3 lead, but you knew that there was nothing that was going to stop Gomer. Of course, had the Jets been able to get a first down in the final two minutes, we would be looking at a different game. But Gomer has gotten over the yips, somehow. And those patented, Favre-like interceptions he was known for are a thing of the past.
And it is a sad f-ing day. The media handies for the entitled, Southern aristocrat will continue. And the Haters will no longer be able to point to playoff meltdowns as his Achilles Heel.
Honestly, Gomer and A-Rod are now clutch. Did you ever think that you would see that day? Seriously, why do I still like sports?
THE SAINTS will not be allowed to have a Super Bowl viewing party at the Superdome. Obviously they remember what happened the last time they allowed a lot of New Orleans citizens into the dome when there was not a game being played.
YOU KNOW which member of the Vikings wants to Brett Favre to return more than anybody? RB Adrian Peterson. Not because Peterson had career highs in many offensive categories, including touchdowns. Rather, nobody remembers who much AP fumbles when Favre is out there in gun-slinger mode.
Honestly, even Cleveland Gary was embarrassed by the number of times that Peterson was putting the ball on the ground in New Orleans. Nobody cares, though, the gun-slinger cost the Vikings the game.
But that was a bad pass by Favre, but where was the effort by Sidney Rice? Good lord.
AND FINALLY …
I understand that they are brothers, but Eli cheering on Gomer was not a flattering look. But did provide countless entertainment. Seriously, that guy won a Super Bowl?
