Yes he has struggled this year. Yes he wasn't perfect tonight. But gosh darnit, he was pretty damned good.

He may be on the downward slope of a great career. But I don't believe it's over. I think there's still some magic left in the bottle.

I'll enjoy every last minute of his career, and I'm not ready to give up yet.

He was pretty close to perfect. Remember Bryant dropped a TD and AB dropped a TD that hit him in the chest. He had a lot of pressure early on and was fantastic getting through that wave.

I'd be pretty pleased if he could keep this mojo going through February and then retire after winning SB MVP during our 7th. I'd prefer he didn't retire, but I think it's inevitable, especially if we win this year, although he could pull an Elway and win Super Bowls his last 2 seasons, which would be even better. :)

As we age we can't do all the things physically that we used to. And we probably shouldn't even attempt half of those things. But I'd like to think that we are all a hell of a lot wiser.

Although, there's been quite a bit of forcing throws into double coverage....way more than my liking. Even tonight.
