Peyton Manning loses in the playoffs, and that means that still NO QB has won a superbowl with one team, and gone on to win a superbowl with another team. Ever. Ray Lewis goes to another AFC Championship game. And Joe Flacco (a QB taken after Jake Long) returns to the championship.
Incidentally, Anquan Boldin had a big game yesterday, and as I recall, Rick Spielman wanted him. But the Wannstache picked LB Eddie Moore instead.
And then in the NFC, Colin Kaepernick sets a record for most rushing yards by a QB. Lets see, he's a second year player, right? And someone I was banging the drum about when he came out of Nevada. Naturally the Dolphins selected some other guy (Pouncey). And as for Aaron Rodgers, the Dolphins had a chance to get him as well, but took Ronnie Brown #2 overall.
So both of the Harbaughs make it back to the championship games. That's somethin'
And my point is just what different directions Miami and these teams are going. Miami has had chances but whiffed on them, and then compounded their own mistakes...
Ahhh well, enjoy the games today!
