NFL Truths: Don't believe Brady-Manning hype 


From Today's Newswire

 

NFL Truths: Don't believe Brady-Manning hype

 

10. Television's corrosive influence on the sports world can be seen in the destructive Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning rivalry.

 

Brady vs. Manning is inorganic, a ratings-producing TV creation. It's not Bird vs. Magic or Chamberlain vs. Russell. Football, with all its variables — three platoons, offense, defense and special teams — does not lend itself to individual rivalries, particularly of men who never take the field at the same time.

Television wants you to believe Sunday night's Patriots-Colts clash is Frazier-Ali, a Thrilla in all Vanilla. The truth is, the Brady-Manning framing is just a convenient excuse for Mike Lupica and Mitch Albom to stare into camera one on the set of "The Sports Reporters" and pretend they watched more than the highlights.

 

Brady vs. Manning is a TV prop.

A story from Fox Sports belittling a rivalry game that will always be on CBS? Hmm...

Foxsports: Read Ed Thompson over on the Colt Board, his 7 bulleted points with Tom Brady being the first. Foxsports did a good job getting into Thompson's head !

NFL Truths: Ed, come on now. You gotta do better than that. Boy, you're really worried about New Englands up start D and Mr. Quarterback lighting it up against your beloved Colts!biggrin
