         Just when you thought that you've heard every excuse under the sun for Peyton's latest choke job, another one gets trotted out by the Manning apologists. Now, they're blaming the loss on reserve RB, Mike Hart: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/07/06/the-colts-may-have-found-a-new-super-bowl-scapegoat/      LOL!!!

    I pray we host another AFC Championship game in Foxborough this season and thump the Colt's again.

    Apparently, you all don't read russgriswolds posts.  He has 1000 excuses lined up for what may happen this year. So, some newspaper tells a story about what happened at a point in the game and the Colts are making excuses?  I don't get it.  Furthermore, Polian stating that the Oline got out played by the Saints Dline is making excuses.  Did you watch the game?  It did.  So, all of you non excuse makers, whose fault were Brady's pics against the Ravens?  Who to blame for our 2007 Superbowl loss?  Griswold says it was a lucky catch.  Are those excuses?

    Apparently you just don't get it. Both jughead and the colts organization have a long history of whining, complaining and finger pointing. If you had researched this topic at all before writing your own complaining post, you'd know that.

    Yeah their fans thrown the other 52 guys under the bus just so they can still deify Geyton. It is almost as if the entire city of indianopolis has a gay crush on Peyton Manning

    The Cold, Hard, Football Facts site has a medical term for the strange phenomenon of media people being unable to ascribe any blame to Peyton Manning for the Colts' post-season failures: "Spinal Manningitis."

    Re: The Excuses Never End With the Indianapolis Colts

    My take on the Super Bowl and the ensuant criticism and deflection surrounding Manning is that one of Gomer's supposed strengths is that he is an offensive co-ordinator on the field. He's out there jumping up and down and waving his arms around like an idiot and all the pundits get all excited and claim defenses cannot stop him because he runs through the entire playbook in 11 seconds and blah, blah, blah all hail Peyton Manning and we're not worthy and what have you.

    Well, the primary reason the Colts lost the Super Bowl is because on that particular key third down, Manning went to his bread-and-butter play and Porter recognized it. Sorry . . .  nobody ran the wrong route and it wasn't a case of the defense making a lucky guess -- or even a bad throw, really. Porter saw the formation and knew what was coming and no matter how you break that down, it's on Manning.

    You can't have it both ways. If he's the ultimate secret weapon as an "offensive co-ordinator on the field," then it's his fault when he calls the wrong play or fails to disguise it effectively. I get that the Colts want to spin it that they don't even sniff the playoffs without Manning (which might be true) and they don't ever want to lay any blame for anything at his feet, but pretending the tide isn't coming in won't save your sandcastle.

    In the old days, the real Colts, the Baltimore Colts never made excuses. These Colts are what they are dolts, chokers and excuse makers.

    It's pretty obvious PatStats is not a Patriots fan.  Probably a Jets or Colts fan posing.  Pathetic.

    Pmike, I agree with your post.

    I wouldn't want people to assume that Boston writers speak for Pats fans, and I doubt this guy speaks for anyone but himself and a handful of delusional fans.

    THE COLTS' O-LINE WON THE MATCHUP

    EVEN ON THE INTERCEPTION, THEY DIDN'T HIT MANNING BEFORE THE THROW.

    I respect Manning now more than ever since Brady started complaining to officials, too, but Polian and dogggg needs to admit when their boy messed up.

    I agree.  It was a close game and Egghead does what he does best in playoff games. He chokes when he's counted on.  It's that simple. Put him outdoors where Polian can't blatantly tailor a game with officials making up calls and he's mediocre when it matters. He's clearly no Brady and not a Montana or a Unitas.

    Guess that's why I appreciate what Brady, Favre, Tarkenton, Bradshaw and Montana more so than Manning. They play the majority games outdoors in any sorts of weather. Be interesting to see a average QB rating/stats for indoor vs outdoor performances.

    I don't know about QB stats but here's an interesting article about how "Domed stadiums have changed football and the fairness of its competition" written by a baseball writer.

    Wow. That was a great article and I hope others here read it as well. There's little or no speculation involved. No opinions, no bias, just facts. The funny thing is if the writer had been able to remove the gaudy statistics the Patriots have had over the recent years, the advantage to domed teams would have been even more pronounced. This article, in my opinion, though others have made this argument for years, has the facts to contradict the argument for Manning as the GOAT. In fact, added to his post season failures, it makes Manning look downright pedestrian.
