[QUOTE]In Response to Re: SEAU IS A PATRIOT - AGAIN! : As a Jints fan I wish I could agree but that's unfair. To be honest, the only one Peyton lost to was Bellichick, and there's no Pats fan who can say that's an embarrassment. Peyton was the Red Sox to the Pats Yankees: he would have won 3 or more SB's if not for Bellichick's defense. And he did finally vanquish the Pats with an incredible second half in the 06 AFC Cahmpionship Game. And anyone who says the Colts won games in the post season with help from the refs? Two Words: TUCK RULE!

Sorry Jints, but you are connnecting invisible dots.
Since 2000, when BB joined the Pats, the Colts play-off losses are such:
2000 wild card loss to ???, but not the Pats.
2002 41-0 loss to Jets in wild card.
2003 24-14 loss to Pats in conference
2004 20-3 loss to Pats in divisional
2005 21-18 loss to Steelers in didvisional
2006 beat Pats in conference and won SB.
2007 28-14 loss to Chargers in divisional.
2009 23-17 loss to Chargers in wild card.
So that's two losses to the Pats. They lost in their first post-season appearances in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. That's awful. And it is usually a case of a horrible game by Manning, but you can retrieve those stats. This was tedious enough.
As for the 2006 win over the Pats, that was one of the worst-called play-off games of the last 25 years, right up there with last year's SB, the 2005 SB, the 2006 NFC conference, and a small clutch of others. I live in Chicagoland and the news reporters and talk show guys were talking about this "stolen game" for three days, until discussion shifted toward the next play-off round dawning. Some radio guys called for an investigation. Most of the worst calls and no-calls happened in the last 20 minutes during with the Colts made "their" comeback. If you can find it in its entirety, re-watch that broadcast and then comment on it the same way.
So in summary, you are way the heck off base, far from Fact Land.
The Colts have one trophy, which was gifted by way of hafting the Pats in the conference game. They should have none because they have been awful in the play-offs. They had gifts from the refs in most of their post-season games, win or lose, by definitiion an opinion, but one so substantiated as to be near-fact..
