    Points per game allowed is a more meaningful measure since the team that scores more points always wins while the team that gains more years doesn't always win.

    As for my personal take on Peyton Manning, he is on the downside of his career, and even though he still produces a lot of volume statistics, his efficiency has dropped markedly in the last two seasons. If you take a look at the QBs widely regarded to be the top six in the NFL -- Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger -- Manning has had the worst passer rating, third-down passer rating and YPA of them all over the last two seasons, and the second-worst TD percentage and INT percentage. He's beginning to lose his stuff, and I honestly think that 2011 will be their last realistic chance for the Colts to win another Super Bowl. I also think that if Manning keeps throwing the ball at the rate he has been -- he had nearly 700 pass attempts last season, which is just too damn many for any QB -- then his skills will deteriorate even faster.

    So that means the facts I provided aren't . . . true? . . . what?

    You just reminded me that win/loss isn't determined by which defense allows less points, but which defense allows less yards. Thanks bro!

    Peyton Manning: 11 playoff appearances, seven one-and-done playoff appearances.
