DDFP 231


Shek, Rank & Handsome Hank welcome newly-crowned Super Bowl champ Michael Bennett into Studio 66 for a rangy, jive-free conversation about the Super Bowl after-party, Michael Sam, Peyton Manning, surfing on Jupiter, his brother/Bears tight end Martellus Bennett, the difficulty of tackling Cam Newton, and the Seahawks-49ers rivalry. The fellas also kibitz about the Cleveland Browns’ melodrama and Shek’s new favorite TV show ‘True Detective’. Also, Black Tie turns a new leaf…sort of.

Can’t-do attitude

“Elite” isn’t the issue. And as Joe Flacco taught us in the first two months of 2013, it never really was.

Sure, prior to Flacco’s flabbergasting run through the post-season, the club of Super Bowl-winning winning QBs had an exclusive membership of just six current NFL signal callers. Those players are of course:

Tom Brady (3 Lombardis)

Ben Roethlisberger (2)

Eli Manning (2)

Aaron Rodgers (1)

Drew Brees (1)

Peyton Manning (1)

Correct me if I’m wrong, but –- regardless how you’d rank those half-dozen names amongst each other –- we can agree they’re the NFL’s six best QBs overall. (I know, I know: you aren’t positive I’m right. Think it through, though, and you’ll realize I am. Go ahead … take your time. I’ll wait.)
