    Thank Goodness for Eli Manning. That's all I have to say.

    So it was NBC that rigged the score board.

    This wouldn't be the first time in the NFL and long before NBC covered it.

    Back in 65 Unitas and his backup went down. Everyone knows the story
    about Tom Matte, backup RB to Lenny moore inserted in as the instant
    QB who led Colts to victory after victory until the fatal game in GB.

    That game came down to a botched FG, or should I say botched FG call
    by officials also, and put GB into the championship game. Even their kicker kicked the dirt knowing he missed it.
    He couldn't believe it when he heard the crowd yelling and screaming. It
    was good and he won the game.

    John Steadman's book, FROM COLTS TO RAVENS has a pic of the ball about 10 ft wide with the REf under it with his arms raised. He was going to print the pic in the paper but Pete Rozelle, the Comish asked him not to so he didn't.

    Shuia was convinced the NFL didn't want Matte, a 2d RB as one of the
    featured QBs in their showcase game of the year. So they got Bart Star
    in. Just like they got Brady in instead of Flacco.

    They used to have a game called the playoff bowl. They stopped it because
    the players hated it. It was for losers but the Colts played the Cowboys that
    year. The team was shocked when Shula announced he was going to let
    Matte open it up and open it up he did.

    Matte beat Tom Landry's complex flex defense by 30 points. Shula laughed
    all the way home that Matte didn't even know what a flex defense was.
    Shula took a lot of heat from the media and the NFL for running up the score vs America's Team but he didn't give a damn.

    He made his point.

    I knew then that these games are scripted and it came home once again
    in SB 3 and still lives, this time with broken score boards just during
    the final drive of the game, just like the phony FG GB kicked in 65.
