It is that time of year again, the craziest week in sports without actual games occuring, media week. With any football game these days and especially the biggest game of the year, the focus of the media will be heavily on the quarterbacks. The old vet squaring off against the young flashy star, will be the default storyline in most cases. Sure there will be talk about the great defenses both teams have, but in this passing league geared towards favoring high powered offenses, the true importance of what the media talks about will potentially be glossed over.
As the years have progressed and the NFL has become an offensive league and many media members have been caught up with numbers, Peyton Manning has been the center of attention as he has produced what the media wants to see. This aspect of the NFL scares me to be honest. People have a short and selective memory when it comes to sports these days because life moves so fast with the constant stream of new information through social media platforms and other technology. In conjunction these factors can lead to a recipe for disaster if somehow Peyton Manning comes out on top this Sunday.
