Everyone is acting like he threw for 500 yards. He threw for 10 more yards than Ben. By that logic, Ben did just as well. The game was close, and if Ben did not miss a few throws, which Manning did not, the game would have ended differently. Manning did not beat the Steelers that day. Our offense did. If we would have won, and Manning had the same stats, what would we say? The destroyed the defense? No way, because he did not do that anyway.
I just don't understand how Manning hasa this effect on everyone. Don't get me wrong, he is one of my favorite QB's (honestly), but he did just enough to beat us for cyring our loud.
