Thank you, John

I am going to start a running feature I have really wanted to for a while, entitled "Thank you, John" in which we highlight one of John Madden's comments that are sure to make Al Michael's eyes roll.

Considering he is a hall of fame player and coach, has an enormously popular video game named after him,and gets to call the NFL's best games as color commentator, Madden often has analysis that is so ridiculous that is is actually hilarious:

Al Micheals, talking about Peyton Manning's injury and his absence at training camp:

Al: John, big deal or little deal?

John: Al, I am going to say big deal. Peyton Manning is the Indianapolis Colts. With Manning, the Colts can be the best team in the NFL. But without him, they are not.

Thank you, John.
