    ...from Dan Marino territory, but he's still going to be remembered as subpar compared to other quarterbacks of his generation who could get the job done in the big game, like Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger (ugh).

    In my opinion, this ugly loss takes him out of the "top 5 ever" conversation... he obviously doesn't belong on the same plane with Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, and the like when the chips are down in the postseason.

    Hell, Peyton's brother still has more rings than him, despite being an obviously inferior quarterback. That's gotta sting.

      trying to beat Tom Brady than he does any other team/quarterback. Brady is his direct competition in the legacy standing.

      refereeing in the de facto Super Bowl, the 2006 AFC Championship.

      Among other things, Pay-me-tons tried to throw a TD pass that would have had to pass through Ellis Hobbs' body for the receiver to have any hope of catching it. And for the sin of being in the way, Hobbs was flagged for pass interference, giving the Colts the ball at the 1.

      Oh, and he can thank Bernard Pollard for the fact that Eli-Eli-Oh #@!#% has more rings than he does. (Of course, if Eli didn't have more rings than he does, Tom Brady would have even more. :-) )
