He caught himself, and knew he screwed up.If Flacco wins the SB, he'll have won as many as Brees. And his playoff record, especially on the road, is very impressive.Do I think he's as good as the QB's mentioned? Probably not. But you could make the case that he's earned the contract. Especially if he wins on Sunday.

Does he realize New York is hosting a SB in a couple years w/o a dome? Does he realize other cold weather cities would love to host a SB?“Yeah, I think it’s retarded. I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than that I don’t really like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather.”I wonder what the people in Baltimore think about this. Personally, I think it sucks. He plays football in cold weather anyway -is he worried about the half time show? What the hell does he care? 3) He used the word "retarded," while being interviewed. Not a good decision for a quarterback who thinks he's in the same class as Manning. I realize he caught himself afterwards and apologized, so give him credit for that; but I highly doubt Brady, Brees, or Manning ever make that mistake in Super Bowl week. duh. That said, go Niners. Can't have Ray Lewis or Flucko winning this.

Sorry, the whole political correctness thing really bothers me.

I think you meant to say "too" instead of two. I am sorry that you are so upset. I will remember to call you people mentally challenged from now on.
