Greatest comeback ever?

    Yeah, I realized Buffalo overcame a greater deficit, but considering the circumstances and history of both teams -- this has to be (if it holds) the greatest comeback in NFL history.

    Of course, Brady has a minute left, but he needs more than a figgie this time.

    Sigh. Does everything that happens in the last 15 minutes have to immediately be sumitted for "greatest ever" consideration?

    Not the greatest comeback, but Peyton's greatest by far. Wow, not just one black coach in the Super Bowl for the first time, but two!

    And I think Chicago has a great shot at beating Indy.

    Usually, I'd agree with you. It is cliche. But what Manning, Dungy and the Colts did was not cliche.

    This conversation has merit.

    Jim Nantz: "For all of you who ever said Peyton Manning would never win the big one, would never get to the Super Bowl, YOU WERE WRONG!!!!!"

    What a tool.

    Bills over the Oilers is the greatest.

    My god a team down by just 18 in the first quarter? Hell, how much were they down to pitt last year? And the pats were down 11 just last week. 18 ain't much more.

    OK -- not sure you guys are completely following me. Don't just look at the score. Look at the history for some perspective.

    A comeback like this is not supposed to be in the makeup of the Colts. And when have the Pats ever squandered a lead like this?

    And TSP -- "just 18 points"? I realize you're living in Cleveland, where an 18-point deficit is still within the point spread, but coming back from down three scores is a Herculean effort.
