    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.

    Very true, but you have to realize the situation.  No challenges left in case of a close play, which is EXACTLY what happened.

    My thinking is this is one of the worst moments in New England sports history. Anyone agree?

    It rates up there with the 2006 AFC Championship game and Wakefield giving up that 12th inning home run.

    Exactly!  They show it in slow motion and praise the guy for the pass rush!  I am glad I am not the only one who saw that.
    Again, you have to plan for these things.  Some one has brought this up in previous threads that the Colts statistically very rarely get called for penalties.  I was completely in shock when they got called for a False Start today.  As such, you have to accept that this is how it is and plan accordingly.
    And Seriously, cut Maroney.

    The bad part is the coaching decision is what will be talked about. The media will not even mention the gimme PI and eventual TD for the Colts.

    no pass rush, time to draft or sign a pass rusher.

    Early 4th quarter its 31-14 and I'm thinking, "this win puts the Pats at the top of the power rankings". Brady is picking them apart and it looks like a decisive win in Indy, a blowout of an undefeated team on their home turf. Then this. Feels kinda like the SB collapse vs. the Giants: sickening.

    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.
    Posted by HOTBLITZ


    HOTBZ-- As William Munny said; "Deserve has got nothing to do with it" B.B took a time out inlast years Colts game which cost us a first down and probably the game. This call did cost the game. Period!!!

      The coach tonight demonstrated a degree of arrogance and stupidity that would lead to mere mortals being fired.  He lost that game by coaching stupid

    Refs did not give this game to the Colts.

    Bill B and the other coaches gave this game to the Colts.

    3rd and 2 - pass when you're trying to take time off the clock??

    4th and 2 on your own 29 guarding a 6 point lead.  What playbook in the universe suggests that you try a pass for a first down rather than punt??

    if they converted, I promise you BB would NOT have been called Jesus or whatever.  It was an AWFUL call, plain and simple.  If they picked up 50 yards it still would have been a miserable call, you just don't give Peyton Manning any chance at a 30 yard field with the game 100% on the line.  W/out a doubt the worst bit of coaching I have seen BB make in his tenure here. wow.

    that was THE WORST CALL IVE EVER SEEN..

    it ranks WAY UP THERE along that damned 4th and long in the superbowl where the pats shoulda kicked and instead went for it, and in the end we lost by 3 fooking points.

    lately BB just hasnt been BB

    Came to check in, and how did I know that you guys would be carping about officiating calls?  I thought the game was called perfectly, except they missed a Mayo int. call.  What you guys are complaining about was a legit PI call.  If anything, the Pats got some breaks on the officiating.  Just admit it: the Colts legitimately won the game on this particular Sunday.  After all, the Pats can't get ALL the calls!

    You know, I think many Patriots fans (myself included) did have the brief thought "F this BS, do a slant with Welker on 4th down and end this nonsense"...but then we dismissed it.  You knew something was up when the camera went to BB and Brady talking and the way the talk ended you know they were going for it.
    Why isn't an Assistant Coach right there to say "WHAT ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND!"
    Again, our loss in the coordinator position shows.  We need more creativity on offense.  In these tight spots latley I always feel like the defense already knows what plays we are going to run because we haven't done a good job in the second half keeping them on their toes.

    the NFL should have to play out-doors.. after this game, with all the hype and who's better? Brady... he plays with natural conditions and wins. peyton stays at home in a dome to win. right there, it's simple. btw, bill... come on, what the heck was that, go back to your plays in 02-05 and relearn what made you great. in the end, its not how you do it, its the W, you used to understand that. greedy on 4th down, c'mon 28 yard line! you don't do that.. trust your defense, its what made you in the first place, get back to it cause you aint winning now

    The Pats blew this game, plain and simple.  No excuses here, now go back to your hole the Jets and Giants are both F-R-A-U-D-S.

    Re: Patriot and Colts game thread

    just a question: dont the pats know they will be playing indy every year?  if so, wouldnt you have a defense that you at least thought could attempt to keep up with them for 60 minutes each game?  if so why would you get rid of players that had an impact in big games?  i know seymour wasnt dick butkis but adalius thomas is useless.  they have no pass rush - although i understand not using it tonight.  the secondary actually played very well - a few of the catches indy got wre perfectly thrown balls.  no one was really beatenj deep.  but the whole short-passing thing just killed the pats. i just dont get giving manning thye ball at the 30 with a 6 point lead?  at that point just concede the TD and get the damn ball back and go 50 yards and kick a FG.  what an embarassment.  awful.

    Oh, hey, its the bottom of the barrel guy. 

    I mean, seriously, do you think that what you say has any meaning? You talked trash forever, but disappeared the second week after Eli's deal with the devil ended. And here you are, four weeks after that, trying to talk tough. 

    What a moron and complete loser. Do you realize the Giants did better this weekend when they didn't play! They actually gained ground. Too bad they have to suit up next week.

    Jules, seriously, go look up the penalties called against teams.  Pats rank up there for calls against, not calls for.  Colts rank up there for calls for.  Regardless of the calls, the Pats blew too many opportunities today.  The Colts will make you pay for it.  That's why they're an undefeated team and not an average team.

    I still cannot believe we went for it on 4th and 2.  At least punt it and make Manning EARN the TD.  Don't hand it to him on a silver platter.  And we had plenty of opportunities to win this game and just didn't put it away.  What a shame to lose like this. This is a hard one to swallow.  Good night fellow Pats fans!

    How about this.  Up 10 with 7 minutes and manning throws a pick.  That was game over in my mind.
