I thought Damon's performance was a great metaphor for his whole career. Absolute mediocrity. (19 of 36, 201 yards, 3 interceptions, no TDs, 29 rushing yards ... 11 points!)
Fans were left scratching their heads -- is this guy actually any good, or was I mistaken? No one watching this game alone would come away mistaking Damon Allen for the greatest QB in league history, or even the greatest of this weekend. But he did finish the game (metaphor for his interminable longevity).
And yet, in the end, on that final drive, he did what was necessary to win.
