Playoff Thoughts

As much as I dislike Peyton Manning, I'm glad he overruled Tony Dungy and went on 4th-and-2 at the end of the third quarter, down 18. I mean what the hell is Dungy thinking? You don't trust your offense to get 2 yards on one play, but they're going to make up 18 points in whatever's left of one quarter after Pittsburgh's drive? And what's the fallout from Manning making the call over his coach? That's pretty disrespectful even if it was correct AND it worked out. Finally, Dungy looked about as into the game as a spectator without a rooting interest - as if he had only a $10 wager on the moneyline. I picked the Colts, but I'm awfully glad the Steelers won, especially after they got jobbed on the Polamalu pick. Does anyone consistently come up smaller in the big game than Peyton Manning? Finally, could there be any stronger argument than the Redskins-Seahawks game that Shaun Alexander wasn't even the MVP on his own team, let alone the league, or that Seahawks brass was very wise to long term Hasselbeck and Jones over him?
