    I think the colts already have.  Since the 06 draft that Rusty wanted to start with, the colts have beaten the pats 5 of the last 6 times.

    In Response to Re: Cold, Hard Football Facts = Patriots Best Drafters:
    Rusty - I was responding to Glen and attempting to compare apples to apples.  *Are you willing to say Maroney is a better pick than Adda or even Gonalez or Ugoh?    *Gonzalez vs. Jackson (Jackson 36th-06; Gonzo 32nd-07).  Gonzalez even with his injuries has been better.   *Brown vs. Chung - (you didn't pick an RB) - Chung's been better. *Hughes has been disappointing but he's was rook behind Freeney and Mathis.  That's tough.  Your pick is better.   *Tate vs. Collie - Collie - easy.  *Garcon vs. Anyone from that draft but Mayo. - Garcon.  Obviously your mayo pick is great.  Merriweather is good but I like Bethea better and he's a better value.    Now, as Tpathetic said, these are about draft picks, but if you feel the need to go there, lets do. Lets look at the udfa's on last year's teams that who never made another team and played only for the pats or colts :  *Jeff Saturday *Gary Brackett *Melvin Bullitt *Aaron Francisco *Jacob Lacey *Gijon Robinson *Blair White *Dominic Rhodes vs. Arrington Green-Ellis Guyton Neal Wright Not much of a comparison, really.  And drafts from 06 to current:  Well, I've already shown that the colts kept a greater percentage of players than the pats from 09-10.  As for 06-08 Pats: Gostkowski, Merriweather, Mayo Colts: Addai, Johnson, Bethea, Gonzalez, Session, Wheeler, Tamme, Garcon. Honestly, I thought maybe the pats had had some better drafts, but after some real analysis, its obvious the colts were better.  Btw - here's what Rick Reilly thought: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=6528474 Rusty - you're...  rusty.

    Addai has more yards rushing than Maroney, but doesnt Maroney have a better yards/carry?  More TD runs?  Maroney had a bad injury to his shoulder in his 2nd year, then became a tap-dancer.  On those 2 flip a coin.  Gonzalez, what has he ever done in this league?  So, HE is better than Maroney?  Chad Jackson couldnt run the routes, so BB cut him and took his losses.  Utoh sucked for his career.  BP didnt want to cut his losses, but during his 2nd season was finally done with him.  Now you can say he started 27 games, well there were a lot of starters on the Lions for many games, does it make them good or be able to start on any other team?
    Now, those UDFA, Francisco, Robinson?  Who the hell are those players?  If we(Pats and Colts) played at least 1 a year for the past8 years, dont ya think we should be to identify those players?  Blair White, marginal but he was ok, Saturday, Bracket, good, and Rhodes.
    Even with Meriweathers short comings, Bethea isnt even close, he is closer to Sanders, just a solid player.
    Also, you say about the Pats vs Colts since 2006, how many of those games were played at Indy?  How many times did the Colst get invisible PI calls (2 for and 1 not called in the endzone for the Pats)?  In that AFC Championship game, the Pats got a call from the NFL because the PI on Samuel in the endzone SHOULD HAVE NOT BEEN CALLED, wasnt that on a 3rd and 10 at the 30 yard line!  How about the Cassel game when the Pats were driving for the winning score then a 15 yard penalty call for Thomas finishing his block?
