Wrap Up

Congratulations to Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning and the club's president, Bill Polian. These are guys who've been in football for a lifetime and each has won for the first time. Dungy was close but didn't win in Tampa. Manning was close but didn't win at the University of Tennessee...

Fun While It Lasted

To quote Tony, "I believe I called that." I watch this team too much and know the tendencies as well as their coaches...And one of those coaches, offensive coordinator Ron Turner, just killed his team. You're finally moving the ball, you're mixing the run and pass effectively down only five...

Fourth Quarter

Grossman so lacks the instincts to be a championship quarterback...He's good at some things...can get better at others...But just now, on third-and-seven, once he reverses field, he's got two blockers and plenty of space...He could have run for 20 yards and it was all in front of him...but he doesn't...

Commercials

Is this Robert Goulet commerical supposed to be funny? Does anybody watching under the age of 45 have any idea of who Robert Goulet is? Is this whole Super Bowl commerical hype just Tony making something out of nothing? How overrated! That FedEx commercial was totally lame. K-Fed? Waste of...

Crunch Time

It's close to a total blowout now because teams get more desperate in a Super Bowl than they would otheriwse and make huge mistakes...Now, the Colts are running it right at the Bears and the defense, largely because of Grossman's ineffectiveness, is tired...Those guys are totally worn out and getting...

Third Quarter

One of the key people in the game for the Chicago Bears is the offensive coordinator, Ron Turner...who on second-and-one, should be interested primarily in advancing the ball...Instead, he has to try and let Grossman throw a third consecutive pass...And Grossman, to be frank, stinks today...The Bears worst nightmare is...

Prince At Halftime

Usually at halftime, I'm busy writing frantically because deadlines are tight at night...But I wouldn't be writing tonight at hafltime. I'm a total Prince groupie...and have been since 1978 when his first album came out...We're the same age, so were 19 then...I parited with The Twins, Prince's scandalously hot twin...

No, I'm not asleep

Hello Everybody...I'm not sure what's more nerve-wracking, watching my team play in the Super Bowl or blogging for the first time in my life...After that incredibly encouraging start, the Colts seem to be playing smarter and harder, which angers the hell out of me.... It's not trailing now for the...

Wilbon Calls an Audible

Because my flight tomorrow was canceled, I'm flying home right now, about to board a flight from Cleveland, where the temperature is one. I'll be back blogging around 7. The good news is that I'll be here late, after Mr. Tony goes nitey-nite around halftime. Get this: I'm wearing my...
