    Re: Cowardly Colts' Organization Shows Its' True Colors

    What the NFL needs is more Colts games that are decided by the players. 

    Fan message boards all over the league are filled with complaints about the phantom PI calls late in games that turn games in favor of the Colts and we all saw the bad spot. 

    Now once again we see the Colts Head Coach go in the tank to let an undeserving team into the playoffs. 

    The "fix" is a constant issue with this team.

    Its just a plain and simple stupid more......if the Colts look at their own history the only time they won the SB this era.....manning and the rest of the starters played in every game and never skipped a beat.....their now gonna get to the playoffs and be completely out of sync!!!!

    Re: Cowardly Colts' Organization Shows Its' True Colors

    Oh, so this is about pulling players during an undefeated run.  As noted by the colts org (which I don't agree with) that is not their perspective.  They believe by having healthier players they will be more prepared for the playoff run. 

    Is the cheating thing passe?  When people on this board are questioning the integrity of the colts decision and comparing it to spygate, then apparently its not passe. 

    And we have people like Bostate who want to claim that there is an actual conspiracy by the NFL to favor the colts.  What he doesn't get is that there are times when calls do and do not happen.  For example, in yesterday's pats game the Pats TE clearly committed OPI by pushing off a defender in the endzone to catch a touchdown, but here we have a guy like bostate claiming conspiracy favoring the colts.  Unfortunately, the refs in the colts game yesterday missed (or misinterpretted {know what I mean})that leaguewide memo, because they didn't call the 2 holds on the kick return and didn't call running into the kicker on the colts punt.  And for the record, I'm not complaining about those things.  The colts had calls go their way too, but they were not as big.  I just want to point them out. 

    ruggie - you may be right, and you are right about the history, and for that reason, and that reason alone (I could care less about the record) that is why I am upset about the colts decision.

    Re: Cowardly Colts' Organization Shows Its' True Colors

    The problem I have is not with resting starters its with the Colts laying down in a game that has playoff implications for 3 or 4 teams. Have the Pats ever lost deliberately to a team with playoff aspirations ? Not to my knowledge. The Colts have done it twice and allowed a team to back in to the playoffs by giving them the game. That's nice that Polian and Caldwell are feeling charitable, however, anything less than a Super Bowl victory will earn them some harsh criticism from fans.

    John - as I said before, anything less than a superbowl is a disappointment, but resting players only has implications for the first game.  If they win that then the resting players question goes away.

    I think this is the smartest thing Caldwell could have done. I wish BB had done the same thing.  There is ALOT of pressure in completing a perfect season. Clearly, we could all see the effects it had on the Patriots down the stretch, in    '07. I really wish we had lost one of those games late in '07. If we had, I think we would have won the Super Bowl. In the grand scheme of things, a perfect season really doesn't mean a damned thing. It doesn't make you any better than any previous Super Bowl winner. To me, 4 Super Bowl wins in a decade, is ALOT more impressive than a perfect season, and I think our quest for perfection, cost us that.

    Re: Cowardly Colts' Organization Shows Its' True Colors

    i can't speak for anyone else.  but to me, yes, this thread is about pulling players in an undefeated run.  i'm not criticizing the colts for resting players per se.  somehow comparing this to spygate is way off base.  i've never said that it compromises the integrity of the NFL.  the Colts' #1 (and only) priority is themselves.   just as the Pats' #1 priority is the Pats and the Chiefs' is the Chiefs and so on.  if a team, say the Steelers, needs to rely on other teams to win for them, that's their problem. 

    having said that, to rob their players and fans of the chance of going undefeated is nothing short of cowardice.  i'm not saying that resting players and esentially not caring if you lose a game when you have everything wrapped up is wrong if you already have a loss.  it doesn't violate any rules in the rulebook.  but to me, it's shameful when you have a chance at 19-0.  i'm obviously gald they lost, and they deserve it.  the Pats may not have ended up going 19-0 but i'm bloody proud they tried.

    I am surprised none of the teams jockying for a playoff spot don't go to the commisioner with a grievance. What the Colts did yesterday flies in the face of the NFL bylaws which states all teams must try to win every one of their games.

    Re: Cowardly Colts' Organization Shows Its' True Colors

    jerh5, yes a superbowl is more important than anything.  but, to say an undefeated season is not important in the grand scheme of things is simply not true.  only one team has done it and everyone knows who it is, and it happened decades ago.  43-some teams have won the Super Bowl. 

    in hindsight, would i trade a regular season loss for a ring?  if it were that easy, of course.  but like i said in my last post, i'm proud of the fact that they gave 100% for a chance to be legends and came within 35 seconds of achieving it.  the Colts can't say they did that.  they backed out.

    "And we have people like Bostate who want to claim that there is an actual conspiracy by the NFL to favor the colts." - udogg

    I didn't say that.  Try again.  I have noticed that you often misquote people or try to take the focus off the issue being discussed.

    I wouldn't have said a word if you hadn't attacked my team with your nonsense. I actually felt bad for Colt's fans but your post put me back on track.

    Today, most Pat's fans feel good about the NFL season.  Colt's fans......not so much.


    Hey, maybe the Colts have made the wildcard round a little easier for the Pats.  Thanks.

    The sad sad sad truth is that the Colts could have esily won that game without putting too much effor into it. Even if Manning threw the ball away and slid on his behind to avoid any sack they would have won that game. Thats how bad the Jets are.

    They Colts arent even good at faking effort.

    Belichick had the stones to play his regulars til the final whistle blew during the '07 regular season.  He could've easily rested an already banged-up Brady along with a bunch of others an extra week and go the cautious route knowing he had the home field locked up and a first round bye.  

    He didn't.  Caldwell did.  Say all you want about Belichick, that showed guts and integrity.  Caldwell is nothing but a puppet coach, and much like Dungy, the apple apparently hasn't fallen too far from the tree.

    The Jets gained 200 yards on the ground, which is nice.

    The sequence of yesterdays events was meaningless, although quite entertaining. That shot of Reggie Wayne on the pine was priceless.
    Do you think you'll see inept pass coverage in the postseason, like yesterday vs. the Jags?

    Tex - don't get me wrong.  I am not happy with the decision.  I am not happy for plenty of reasons, but I will defend the decision against comments like - the colts are cowards (that's bs).  the colts threw the game (that's bs).  the colts have no integrity (that's bs). 

    But defending those things does not mean that I am not upset by the decision.

    jbolt - the jets gained only 54 in the first half.  They got 84 in the 4th.  Not bad against the #1 rushing offense in the NFL considering that the colts did not even play 5 defensive regulars/starters - Bullitt, Powers, Session, Dawson, Mathis. 

    I wouldn't use that game to hang your superiority hat on.

    Underdogg, if I were you I wouldnt even try and get involved in defending your team on this website. It will be 24/7 for the next week and probably cost you a few hairs without changing a single persons mind. Why put yourself through the hassle?

    HEART..... the Colts players and Colts coaching staff and upper management do not have it and it reflects down to their fan base as well.

    No Heart really?  Fine.  We'll just call it machine like efficiency, at least that's what the 2nd half of the colts pats game was.  cold calculated destruction of your little engine that could.
