Scott Underwood: New look, features coming to THB Sunday newspaper

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what we’re doing — and what we could do better!

With the Colts eliminated from the playoffs, many local football fans are rooting hard for ex-Colt Peyton Manning to win his second Super Bowl ring when his Denver Broncos play the Seattle Seahawks (6:25 p.m. kickoff, FOX) Sunday in the cold at East Rutherford, N.J.

While Manning would, no doubt, choose for the game to be played in better weather, the environment offers a chance to exorcise simultaneously three ghosts that have haunted his career: He hasn’t played well consistently in postseason games and in cold weather, and his single Super Bowl victory falls short of the standards set by great quarterbacks such as Joe Montana and Tom Brady.

If Manning paints one of his masterpieces Sunday and the Broncos emerge victorious, he can lay legitimate claim to the title Greatest Quarterback of All Time.
