Man Oh Manning!

Peyton put on QUITE a show in the Dome last night.....the Saints are pathetic!



Peyton humiliates dad's old team
12:33 AM CDT on Monday, September 29, 2003

Associated Press


Peyton Manning visited his hometown Sunday night and humiliated his dad's old team.


Manning became the first NFL quarterback in more than a decade to throw six touchdown passes in a game, setting a team record and leading the Indianapolis Colts past the New Orleans Saints 55-21.


"It was fun. Anytime you throw six, sure that's fun," said Manning, who entered with a season total of three TDs. "It was just good execution. We were executing well even when we got stopped."


That wasn't too often.


The Colts -- 4-0 for the first time in seven seasons -- piled on the most points the Saints have allowed since a 62-7 loss to Atlanta in 1973.


"We didn't play well," Saints coach Jim Haslett said. "That's all there was to it."


Manning went 20-of-25 for 314 yards, with TD tosses that covered 17, 14, 79, 12, 32 and 11 yards -- all in three quarters.


Marvin Harrison caught six passes for 158 yards and three of the TDs.


With his father, Archie, watching in the stands, Manning fell just short of the NFL record for most touchdown passes in a game -- seven, shared by five players: Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, Y.A. Tittle and Joe Kapp.


Manning is the first quarterback to throw six in a game since Mark Rypien did it for the Washington Redskins against Atlanta on Nov. 10, 1991.


Manning was typically modest after his impressive outing.


"I got good protection. The guys were open," he said. "I know that's boring, but I don't take it for granted. It was our night."


He grew up attending games in the Superdome and cheering for the Saints. Archie Manning is the only New Orleans quarterback to go to the Pro Bowl. How dominant was Indianapolis on both sides of the ball? It took a 14-0 lead before the Saints (1-3) had a single first down.

As a die hard Saints fan, I think it is safe to say we have the WORST team in the NFL this year. I bet we don't even win 4 games. I wish they would just make the name of AINTS official............

Don't worry. I think it's safe to say that the Jaguars are right there with you.

1) Marvin Harrison screwed things up for my fantasy team with his receiving yardage and TD's.

2) For the locals #1: anyone think the Bears game on the 12th will sell out.....or that they'll sell SRO tickets? Methinks, NOT!!!

3) For the locals #2: anyone catch the radio call on WWL 870 of JIm Henderson and Hokie Gajan? Great to see them piling on the Aint's. All of it was true.

4) Rick Venturi needs to go, the defense is terrible, injuries notwithstanding.

5) I said it before, and I'll say it again.....Brooks is not what the Saints need at QB. Should've kept Jake Delhomme. Is Bobby Hebert still around??? Jim Everett???

Tom at .....errr, uhhh, ahhh screw it.....MSY

I have both Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison on my fantasy team. Needless to say I had a huge week. Wish they could play the Saints every week.

EVERYONE wishes they could play the Saints every week. And Tom, I listened to 870 driving home(here in ATL) and was glad they were doing it. I think Brooks is OK but our offensive and defensive coordinators need to go!!!!!!

The bears are the worst team in the NFL.

The bears won't win one.

They are pathetic.

Guess what was spotted in the Dome during the Colts game?

The elusive paper bags over fans' heads!

Haven't seen those in some time. Ah, nostalgia.

The sad thing is that the Saints have some good offensive weapons, but really the only who seems to be trying is Deuce. Brooks is an absolutely mediocre quarterback...very inconsistent. Horn is a great receiver, but he can't do too much if Brooks can't get him the ball! And don't get me started on the defense....horrific!

The coaching is lackluster and the players have no motivation whatsoever on the field.

Sure, the season is still young, so anything is possible; however, the prospects of a 4 and 12 season, at the moment, look very promising.

By the way...Peyton Manning is a legend as far as I'm concerned. If anyone had to put on a show in the Dome, at least it was him.

As a saddened Saints fan I must still defend our hapless squad......

Of our 11 starters on defense I think 7 are injured. Oh Dale Carter, won't your eye please heal! Darren Howard, please repair your wrist! Tebucky Jones, Michael Lewis, protect the "boys" next time!

S**T, and we play Carolina next week??!! awww holy hell! We're screwed!!!!

At least Deuce McCallister ran for 107 yards and a TD. Only bright spot.
