You learn from history in all of life, but sports gives you the opportunity to chase it. Succeding to instant gratification is doing the game a major injustice.
Yes, and the winner of the Super Bowl is "the best". The Colts put themselves in a great position to be "the best".
Your arguments are not based on logic. If EE doesn't hustle, it would be the same as if Peyton Manning didn't hustle. If Peyton Manning was rested by his coach, it would be the same as EE getting a night off by his manager.
