    COLTS: luckiest team in history?

    not only do they get all of the calls by the officials, but they always get the bounce of the balll to go there way. They will make a first down by an inch, other team will throw a stupid interception or fumble in the red zone Just when indy needs it. Peyton throws passes that sould be easil intercepted yet the db drops it.

    Stuff like this has happend in every close colts game this year ex- Miami game jacksonville game, Texans, Pats, Ravens. I actually hope they go 16-0 then loose miserably in the devidional round which would be hilarious.

    I would say the Colts are lucky the Ravens offense Eats it. You can't kick field goals all day and beat the Colts.

    So, you are saying that the Colts are prepared to take advantage of bad spots by the refs - almost as if they know they are coming.

    Makes sense. The rest of us know they are coming. Why shouldn't the Colts.

    You can't even get game winning first downs and beat them.

    Let's worry about what the Pats can control.  I'm tired of reading about the Colts.

    its sickening, i mean i can see a team "making thier own breaks" but this i just insanity. If not for the good lord and the zebras on thier side they could easily be 7-3 or worse

    Beat our butts?  Won yes, butt beating, not really.  But you and your team earned bragging rights it's agreed.  But why the revisionist history?

    No matter, Indy has the number one spot in our conference.  Let them win against our opposition.  As of today, we are tied for the second spot and the other bye--i'll take that after 3 terrible losses.

    The NFL has started a new stat - Z yards.

    It is how many yards awarded by the refs to the Colts during a game. The more yards they give, the more points the refs get. Their points can earn them autographed pictures of Peyton Manning, Manning's used teabags or even a point and a wink from Peyton during the game. The refs love it.

    I think we are third behind Cincy due to Div record.

    They always seem to get that extra bounce. Let's hope the Texans can beat em next week. 

    7-3 tied with San Diego and Cincy for second in the AFC.

    Posted by underdoggg[/QUOTE]

    Beat our butts? You’re as ignorant as leon when it comes to football. A one point win in football is not decisive, especially playing at home. An extra point which is attempted after a six point touchdown is worth one point.

     

    The colts won a close game that could have very well gone either way.

     

    Check out the NFL website, they give a pretty good explanation as to how the scoring goes, you should have a better understanding as to how close the game was when learning more. Good luck.

    LOL..The rest of the Colts schedule doen't look too tough either.Denver looks like they can't beat anyone right now. The best shot of these guys going down in the regular season is against The Jags at Jacksonville. A lot of the Media were ripping the Pats in 2007 for playing their starters when they had home field sewn up. I'm waiting to see what they have to say about the Colts if they go for it.

    The Colts flirted with it in 2004 at 13-0, and they seemed much more interested in getting everyone 100% healthy than "going for it".  Specifically, I seem to remember Brackett and another defensive player being held out of Game 14 even though they were just slightly dinged.  Caldwell's more agressive than Dungy, so it will be interesting to see what happens this year if it continues...

    That's exactly what I was thinking. If Dungy were coaching they would probably sit guys to get them healthy. You know the Players want to go for it so we'll see what Caldwell thinks.

    I want them to go 16-0.  It would be so much sweeter to destroy their season in the playoffs.

    The Pats got breaks if you remember in many games during their 16-0 season. Good win today by the Pats. However, their second half lack-luster play is 2 straight games old now. They need to fix their second half point production.

    Re: COLTS: luckiest team in history?

    You guys are really flogging this horse pretty bad. The PI calls, the Belichick blunder, and still the Pats lost their toughest road game all year by a single point. We have to play better situational football (in the red zone against good teams on defense and offense.) and the only way to do that is to put are young defensive players in a precarious position to decide the outcome of the game. Our D needs to hold teams to field goals in the red zone and Bill will, ideally, know who starts in what packages (nickels and dimes). The D Line and secondary is still very much a work in progress. It's better to evaluate your team after a loss like that than it is to assess blame on anyone play, player (except the Maroney fumble), or coach.

    (The Pats got breaks if you remember in many games during their 16-0 season)

    True they got a few breaks in that ravens game but the rest of the games were blowouts.

    The Colts are not lucky, good teams find a way to win, no matter how bad they look every week they just win, period, who cares about anything but the final score, the final score is the bottom line. Next time we play at Indy in the AFCC game in January i hope the Patriots play smarter, eliminate turnovers, ditch the prevent D, save their 2nd half timeouts for crucial challenges and finish them off.

    Of course they get the calls, they always do, we should be used to it by now, good teams overcome the bad calls, i believe the Patriots can overcome the ''home field advantage'' in the rematch.

    Maybe the Colts are just better this year now that they got a real coach.Wink

    also note that the colts get all the tough teams at home ( except the .500) revens at home another gift. pats play most of thier hard games on the road including having to go to Indy for the 3rd straight year.

    Caldwell? You mean Manning.

    By the way, you spelled Winnfield wrong.

    <irony> Oh, gee, you missed the point.</irony>

    ud thinks - hmmm, i bet that if i keep pretending the colts didn't get a gift, people will start to believe it to. i guess the best way to do this is to go to all patriots boards and keep writing it. maybe then i will get over this feeling of inferiority. 

    The great part about that ud is that even ESPN is beginning to see how the Colts get calls all the time. Chris Berman even made a joke about it this afternoon. I guess you are going to have to spend some time sending him emails on how the Colts really earned their gifts.

    Even ESPN is starting to notice this. Awesome.
