Might Want to Double Check the Snap Judgments Next Time

Doozy of a mistake by SI.com's Don Banks in his column titled "snap judgments" on Sunday night. Since I'm sure the editors will fix it at some point, here's what Banks said about Sunday's games:

• Doozy of a doubleheader of defeat Sunday for the Manning clan. Peyton's Colts go down at home against the Chargers, and Eli's Giants can't quite pull the upset at Dallas.
We not only lost any shot at a Manning versus Manning Super Bowl, but that Eli versus Philip Rivers Super Bowl showdown is off the board, too.


Um...huh? Strange insertion into a column, especially since the Giants led for the final 13:29 of the game. Eli can't win, even when he wins...

Anyone not think that a Packers - Patriots Superbowl won't be the most watched in history?

Woz - I think the Sports Guy mentioned that he is scared of this match-up. Worried that Favre would get all the calls. Yah, he gets some questionable roughing the QB calls, but I don't see the Packers getting calls like the Cowboys did in the mid-90's.

Agree that it would also be the biggest, most-hyped Super Bowl ever.
