Whyyy?

When you’re driving down the field in opposing territory in the fourth quarter with more than three minutes left, why would you ever throw a pass?

Keep to the ground game and run down the clock so they can’t get the ball back and have time to drive down the field and score again.

If Manning hadn’t thrown that horrible pass that got picked off by Tracy Porter and returned for a touchdown, the Colts would have undoubtedly won the Super Bowl. The whole Indianapolis Colts football team and their fans were irreparably damaged by Manning’s negligent actions.

Sound crazy?

This Monday morning quarterbacking is the same thing a lot of doctors go through when they make a judgment call and are sued for malpractice due to a bad outcome.

I wonder … can fans who lose money on bets on a pro football team sue the professional football players for their negligent decisions? I bet those multimillion dollar salaries could pay for a lot of damages.

    A judgment call is one thing. But what if Manning got a perfect snap from center and had control of the ball and then dropped it? What if it was raining and the ball was a little slippery but all of the other pros and even some college players were able to handl it?

    Now there is an interesting twist on things.

    I think that’s why we have a trial. Because all kinds of human interactions sometimes turn south and the parties involved think the original intent was something else and but for that mistake it would have been achieved and they wouldn’t have suffered damages.

    Maybe we should change the name from a “lawsuit” to “A method of gathering information and sorting out whether a party was at fault when people have a disagreement and whether that fault resulted in damages that should be compensated”. Much better.

    Why??….

    Because growing up Peyton Manning always wanted to throw the game winning touchdown pass for the Saints in the SuperBowl…and now he has!!!

    cold, I know.
