Tony Dungy on Eli’s legacy, Super Bowl officiating, Peyton’s future and NFL parity
— Dungy said he was surprised how much pressure the Patriots got on Eli Manning.
— Dungy said that he was stunned by Eli Manning’s fourth-quarter performance. Dungy said Eli had stretches were he didn’t dominate but he was very good in crunch time.
— Dungy said the parity in the NFL has a lot to do with the rules. If you can pass and rush the passer, you can win even if you’re not a complete team.
— Dungy said that the Eagles could have done the same thing as the Giants if they had gotten in.
— Dungy agreed with Ordway that officials are hesitant to call big penalties in a game this big. “Officials do not want to decide the game,” Dungy said.
— Dungy said that the Peyton Manning controversy is tearing apart Jim Irsay. He thinks that the Colts don’t have a firm grasp on Peyton’s health. “I now can conceive him playing in another uniform,” Dungy said.
