God asks Peyton Manning first, "What do you believe?"

Peyton thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says,
"I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my fans."

God can"t help but see the essential goodness of Manning, and offers him a seat to his left.

Then God turns to Tony Romo and asks, "What do you believe?"

Tony says, "I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I've al ways tried to be a true sportsman, both on and off the playing fields."

God is greatly moved by Tony"s sincere eloquence, and he offers him a seat to his right.

Finally, God turns to Tom Brady and asks, "And you, Tom, what do you believe?"

Tom replies, "I believe you're in my seat..."

It's funny cuz it's true. Smile

He hasn't eclipsed Joe Montana yet though. He's getting close, but not yet. If they go undefeated and win the SB this year, that might about do it.

In National Football League lore, the Snowplow Game refers to a regular-season game played between the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots on December 12, 1982.

Playing in a heavy snowstorm at New England's Schaefer Stadium, the two teams remained scoreless late into the fourth quarter. With 4:45 left to go in the game and on-field conditions worsening, Patriots coach Ron Meyer summoned the stadium's snowplow operator and - in the face of furious protests from Miami coach Don Shula - directed him to veer off course and clear a spot on the field for placekicker John Smith, with Matt Cavanaugh putting down the hold. The snowplow driver, Mark Henderson, was serving a 15-year prison term for burglary and out on work release. He was released from prison a few years after the game. His plow was a John Deere tractor with a sweeper attached, a John Deere 314. When interviewed by a TV reporter about the controversy, Henderson replied, "What are they gonna do, throw me in jail?" Smith's subsequent field goal gave the Patriots a 3-0 lead that held until the final gun.

The following year, the NFL banned the use of snow plows on the field during a game.

i think it's safe to say that the Pates have been a ground-breaking team when it comes to instituting NFL policy...

Your viewpoint, obviously, is slightly askew of Me and Coach Shula's....

I dunno. Bad weather conditions are a great equalizer. Foxborough
occasionally experiences bad weather conditions.

No, the fans need to be VERY miserable, to really appreciate the magnanimousness of the defeat.

(I think that is the biggest word I ever used)
