Bad Weekend for 'QB Wins'...

…yet, it seems as if nobody noticed. Strange, but hardly surprising considering the unfortunate inability of professional sports analysts to properly put their sport into context. Still, as predictable as today’s headlines were, I find myself just as disappointed and frustrated as I always am. You’d think I would have learned by now, right? You’d think I would have conditioned myself to deal with the inevitable onslaught of “(Insert ‘clutch’ QB’s name) wills his team to victory” narratives that pervade the conclusion of the conference championship games.

Well, I haven’t. No matter how hard I try, I can’t stop myself from getting upset. No matter what I tell myself, I can’t stop from getting angry every time I venture to the front page of ESPN’s web site. Perhaps I have an anger problem. Who knows? But really, how am I supposed to respond when I see the following stories:
