    Colts fan is genuinely perplexed.

    Calls don't go against Indy.

    That's not the way it's supposed to work.

    They're going to have to get Polian to work on those replay guidelines.

    As Pats fans know (all to well), when you are at the top, failures of any kind become the comforting fodder of those less fortunate. 

    Pats fans, rip away at all things Colts.  It is comforting. 

    As for that call - here is the only I can say about that.  Super slo-motion could make Larry Bird look like he could levitate and it can make a player look like he actually has possession, which he may or may not have.  Regardless, it ultimately had no effect on the outcome of the game.  

    No complaints from me on the overturn. 

    What I would have liked to have seen (and don't know if it was available) is the colts to have challenged possession on the onside kick.  Before the scrum (if I recall correctly) it looked like a colts player possessed the ball and was on the ground. 

    If true - that could have changed the entire game.

    Wow, you sound even more pathetic than those idiots on that thread!

    Doggg....quit your whining....You lost fair and square....blaming it on the replay is PATHETIC.  He clearly had possesion of the ball slo-mo and in real time.

    You are starting to sound like us during the 4th and 2 play when Faulk looked like he had a first down......

    What I loved was the quote from Caldwell about how he looks calm, but inside he is even calmer.  If you saw his face after the pick six, that was no longer the case, and it was delightful.

    Re: Saddest Colts fan thread ever

    First of all, that Colts fan was right - the call was bad...BUT IT WAS THE ORIGINAL CALL THAT WAS BAD.  Apparently, Colts' fans are so accustomed to the officials giving them games with bad calls that they do not know what a properly called play looks like, or how the rules work.  This was not a sideline catch.  The receiver needed only control the ball after or as he crossed the plane.  He did.  He later bobbled it when it was kicked away from him, but that is after the score, so it is moot.  Had it been an out-of-bounds call or an on-the-field catch, the call would have been different. 

    UNDEROO, you never surprise me. I always expect you to pull some nonsense out of the air and attempt to present it as truthful and substantiative. 

    First, slo-mo is more accurate than hi-speed.  I thought anybody knew that.  Apparently, I was wrong.

    Second, in case you have noticed, humans (as in officials) make mistakes all the time.  I venture to say that this one made the worst call of the game and I am glad N.O. challenged it.

    Third, the N.O. special-teamer had control of the ball, on the ground, both hands on it as it lay under his leg.  At no time did any Colts' player ever have control of the ball.  I fully expected N.O. to challenge a call of Indy possessing the ball, as the camera work clearly showed a N.O. player controlling the ball before the scrum ensued.  In such situations, you usually do not have a clear view, but in this case we did.  It is absurd for you to suggest that Indy got jobbed or ever have had control of the ball.

    Last, you imply that your team suffered bad calls in this game.  What about the three non-calls that should have been 15-yarders for the defenseless receiver hit/late hit/unsportsmanlike play/helmet-to-helmet hits that were leveled against Shokey.  For your benefit, CBS even showed that dirty helmet-to-helmet adjoined with an elbow to the face. Let's face it, your team played a dirty game and got away with at least 45 yards that they should have been penalized to go with the 15 they did receive.  How would 45 extra penalty yards have impacted this game?
     
    But frankly, Indy played a lousy game, from coaching, to passing (barely escaping four or five near-INTs), to tackling.  The pass rush blocking was excellent, but accompanied by holding that was not called. It is, as I and many other have said all this season and the past few, a team that cannot win without the officials squarely in it's pocket.

    Now let's put all those stupid "Peyton Manning is the player of the decade" claims to rest.  Even Peter King is admitting he blew it on that declaration, i.e. his back-up choice of Brady is the best player of the decade. Booyah!

    Dogg- With all due respect they would have never turned that call over. There was nothing conclusive about the replay except that common sense would tell you the Colts recovered that. That being said, Not good enough for a reversal.

    BTW, You got to take a few shots the night Indy beat us and didn't balk at the opportunity. Just some good natured ribbing.

    I stoppped reading anything that the colts fans write becuase ignorance is obviously there fandom motto. The Replay couldn't have been any clearer,he caught the ball and controlled the twice in the same reception both times the possession was in the endzone,end of story!

    Re: Saddest Colts fan thread ever

    That initial call was so obviously wrong, I am surprised it is even an issue.

    He had possession. The ball was in the endzone. Done. End of story. 

    Going to the ground isn't relevant because possession in the endzone ends the play. It would only have been relevant if he was in contact with the defender and going to the ground - then he would have had to maintain possession.

    His bobble after hitting the ground wasn't relevant because the ball was already dead when it crossed the endzone in his possession. Even if it were relevant, he regained control before having the defender kick it away and that would have been enough for the points to count.

    And then, even if they were only up by 5, the Colts would still need a TD and I doubt any of the plays in the ensuing Colts drive would have changed. The Saints would have only won by 12 instead of 14.

    Underdog we're not ripping we're laughing. To long you Colts fans have believes the media hype. Welcome to the real world. The Saints were clearly the better team going in and only the tunnel vision of Manning worship by the media prevented anyone from seeing that.

    He stopped in as bjesus claiming the Colts were still the team of the decade but quickly retreated. I'm beginning to think he may also be coltsbabe

    Root, I thought it was the other way around.  If contacted, the ground cannot cause a fumble.  If not contacted, the ball must be possessed to the ground. 

    Agreed it did not matter to the outcome of the game and would have only if the colts scored a td on the next series, which, of course, did not happen.
