    Colts-Patriots Rivalry over

    Pouting is gone. Who becomes the new big rival? Not counting the jests as their QB is terrible.

    Hopefully this sends UD6 away permanently

    Well if Peyton lands in Miami, I think that will give you your answer.

    I agree if Peyton lands in Miami it is Miami, but It could be Miami anyway. They don't need Peyton to be a threat they are just good coaching and a couple players away.

    There are still the Steelers and Chargers. Though both teams aren't what they used to be a few years ago they are always key games. And the Steelers are well managed and well coached, so they are always a threat. A healthy Texans team could also be an up and comer. You can say Baltimore, but I'm not sold on Flacco and that defense is getting old. And, of course, Miami if they sign Manning. Though I'm doubtful he will want to play there. Even if they sign Matt Flynn they will still be a possibility. KC is another team who might be in the mix if they upgrade at QB (and stay healthy). I think the biggest obstacle is the NFC. It seems the balance of power has shifted to them much like it shifted to the AFC back in the 90s.

    The shift seems to be related to the fact that most of the top 10 QBs are now in the NFC. Everything else is probably equal.

    Yeah, I'd say the Colts are pretty much history.  They may never be a contender again.  years and years.

    it never really was a rivalry because the only game of consequence the colts beat the patriots in was the 2006 afc championship game- and we all know the refs had more to do with that game than payaton necking -

    From a purely competitive standpoint, it's Bitchburgh and has been for many years. I'm tempted to say the Steelers may be headed for a lull, but that's dangerous thinking. The San Dago rivalry should have developed, but it's hard to develop any compelling aversion to a team as comically under-acheiving as the Chargers. On paper it's tempting to say Baltimore, but the Ravens -- much like the Colts before them --  have beaten the Pats in an important game exactly once.

    Ideally, you'd like to see somebody on the rise take the mantle . . .  maybe Houston . . .  but we haven't played them enough to generate any kind of real animosity.

    And plus besides . . .   as far as I'm concerned the Pats biggest rival is and always has been the Dolphins, no matter how much and for how long they blow.
