By all means, the run defense was far worse then Peyton, and the special teams wasn't very good either. And Caldwell wasn't very good either. And the receivers, especially Wayne, couldn't get open. I'm not thrilled with Manning, but by no means does he get "the bulk of the blame" from me.
I apologize, you're right. I meant the sentiment in the media. It'll be...........Peyton can't win the playoffs again. If anything, I blame special teams. That running into the kicker, and the KO return were absolute nightmares.
