From a Texas high school championship game last week, here's a young quarterback who is going to let absolutely nothing stand in the way of victory. How do we know? The guy vomits, then hikes the ball, throws a game-winning touchdown pass, then vomits again. Now that's devotion. Or, at the very least, that's abject fear of an over-intense screaming coach and a whole town that rates its self worth on a bunch of 16-year-olds playing football.

This is not something we'd say that, oh, Tony Romo could pull off. Eli Manning, though? Absol — OK, no way.
