    Belichick needs an immediate "random" drug testing.  Either that or someone needs to verify his bank account did not increase dramatically recently.  He had to be bribed into that stupidity.

    Like the Colts weren't mugging Moss all night? Like the Colts didn't hold once all night? Did you miss that? I suppose Coltvision doesn't replay those bad calls.

    I dont think I've ever been more frustrated, embarrassed, annoyed, angry in all my life. Colts (and prob the rest of the NFL) should not be celebrating right now. Colts didnt win this one, we lost it.

    Wiggy, you have this right.  And I'll tell you this.  Belichick had a perfect game plan early.  Make the young wideouts beat the pats and there were at least 3 drops. 

    but I disagree that the colts should not be celebrating.  coming back from 17 down in the 4th against the pats is remarkable.

    These are 2 very good teams.  See you in the playoffs.

    dogg if u really think that was pass inference you are biased. That being said you guys deserve it. Belicheck completely terrible. i ve never been so heated and disgusted over a loss ever..including the loss to the giants in the super bowl. No way Pats should lose that game..atrocious..pathetic..no superbowls in the future.

    hey guys,
    those calls were absolutely dubious, i agree. in fact, i expect that playing indy.

    but still: indy played great: their defense made tough stops, their offense played good enough that BB wouldn't trust his defense with 2mins left.

    we can argue officiating all we want, but indy was the better team on the field tonight.

    great game, hated the result, but it was a great game.

    Gridlock - moss is the #1 hand fighter in the NFL.  He initiates and wants that.  His size allows him to play that for position.  Once he has position, he does not lose.

    My question is if you go for and don't make, why not let them score. Then you get 1 minute plus to go down and kick a field goal. If you gamble, go all the way.

    Re: Patriot and Colts game thread

    Worst decision making I've ever witnessed in the clutch.  This rivals Chris Webber's "timeout" in the NCAA finals.  All season, I've thought about the coaching calls and it all came to fruition tonight.  We should only have 1 defeat and the coaching staff has cost us 2 all alone. 

    It all started with the play calling that led to the 1st FG.  Next came the TO as the second half began.  In  that situation, take the penalty.  Perhaps in the 1st half, you call a TO, NEVER in the 2nd half.  Goal line call with Maroney, why do you trust him.  Give it to the "law firm" or Faulk.  Worst case, go play action and hit the TE or Moss in the corner. 

    What in the hell were we doing playing defense on that final drive (especially tackling Adai at the goal line)?  Very poor game situational awareness.  This is Peyton Manning we're playing.  With 30 yds to go and 2+ minutes on the clock concede the TD and give our MVP a realistic chance to get us in FG position or a TD with a 2 minute offense.  
     
    Finally, if the current stable of backs (aside from KF) can't cut it, sign Johnson (cheap) and give him a crack at it.  The Krafts do want to win and  should see that this is a distinct problem.  Have LJ make a statement apologizing to whomever he's offended, do some Public Relations in the local community to make amends, and start cracking heads.

    One more thing, I was sooo relieved when I saw Springs was a scratch.  Little did I know that Bodden would showboat and cause Peyton  to hunt his dumba** down.

    What the hell is up with us on the road? Belichick got outcoached on the road, again. 


    It's hard to see us going to the Superbowl with this kind of play, I can't believe I can't say "In Belichick I trust".

    Re: Patriot and Colts game thread

    BB risks losing his defense if he doesn't man up and 100% take the blame for that 4th down call (i'm assuming it was his call).  The Pats played sooooo poorly in the fourth quarter, but that 4th down call was the killer.  How do you explain that to your young players?????  I know the D isnt shut down or anything, but leaving Peyton Manning with a 30 yard field is guaranteed to fail.  Hell I wouldn't leave Jason Campbell with a 30 yard field. BB has some serious work to do this week, this team clearly has the ability to beat anyone-but in 09 it's simply not getting done like it needs to be.

    had they converted on 4th and 2 belicheck would have been hailed as Jesus,
    plus, i think that they gave faulk the incorrect spot.  should have been a patriots first down.

    In Response to Re: Patriot and Colts game thread:
    Worse than losing the game, Belichick just told his defense he has no confidence in it. Beyond that, what we just saw was the Colts doing what they do. This game should have been a blowout, but the Pats refused to finish and made just enough mistakes to let Indy hang around. A zebra here, an idiot coach there, and -- voila' -- a golden opportunity p*ssed away. The Pats should have no problem winning their division, but after what I saw tonight, I have no confidence that they can go back into that stadium and win in January. None, whatsoever.

    The Patriots completely dominated the game for 56 minutes ... offense marched down the field each possession, Manning looked very confused at times, and we lost our best pass rusher, his replacement, and had Adalius playing outside LB, which resulted in an extremely diminished defense.  How do you have no confidence in their chances?  The Colts won on a shaky PI call, one horribly bad turnover in the red zone, and one of the biggest coaching blunder decisions in NFL history.  You expect the stars to align like this for the Colts again?

    Re: Patriot and Colts game thread

    When the refs give the other team a touchdown on a non-penalty, it breaks the defense because they know they can not do anything. Belechik had to go for it, because the defense had been taken out of the game by the refs! This is how they do things in China and the NFL...compete but with central control...low point for the league.

    That call was right. A pass is complete when he has clear possession and touches with both feet in bounds. 

    But, you have to admit the gimme interference call.

    It isn't a Colt comeback without a phantom PI call.

    Worst loss by any team ever in sports history!  That was literally unbelievablke that it would end that way. 

    BB has cost this team 2 Super Bowls by not bringing in any decent DBs and now he pulls this one on us!  What could he have been thinking?

    They literally did everythig they had to do to lose this game.  Squandered scoring opportunities to put the game away.  Heck, just putting Maroney on the field is enough for me to question BB's smarts. 

    I wasn't even this mad when the blew the Super Bowk because I expected Ellis Hobbs and Asante Samuel to blow that game.  This game was over.  Wasted time outs - stupid play calling - Maroney eveb being on the team - ...

    Re: Patriot and Colts game thread

    No one with a sober mind can defend the big baby bb 4 and 2 call.  bone headed call of all time, yes your defense is horrible and manning is probably going to score anyways but punt, who knows maybe there is a fumble, maybe defense surprises everyone and makes a play.  But no, the genius and his ego makes the dumbest call of all time.  It hurts pat fans when your coach can't steals manning offensive calls.  5/6 losses to Colts.  Don't worry about home field advantage you won't be making it out of first round.
