Colts Blogging

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

Well, hell.  That was ugly.  Peyton can only do so much.  The two tipped pass interceptions were killer.  And where was the defense?  They just collapsed.  You aren’t going to win many games when you give up 400 yards and turn the ball over three times.  Even when Billy Volek’s in for the last three possessions.

There could be big changes in Indy next year, and not just with the new stadium.  I think Tony Dungy will retire.  And I think there’s a 50/50 chance Marvin Harrison will retire, too.  As I understand it, he has the kind of injury that’s going to continue to cause him pain for as long as he plays.  Not a good sign that after 11 weeks of rest, he sat out most of the second half today.  It’s too bad.  The NFL needs more Marvin Harrisons.

But a pretty big bummer this afternoon.  I was looking forward to the hype and the clash next week.  I don’t see anyone stopping New England, now.

    Sad day- I was hoping to see the Colts face the Pats.
    Peyton Manning is a first class quarter back, Tony Dungy is a first class coach and the Colts are first class all the way.
    My best to them all.

    I liked what Gregg Easterbrook said about their regular season matchup, that it was good vs. evil. Manning, Dungy and Harrison against the cocky Brady, cheating Belichek and “this man will explode in five seconds” Moss.

    I admire the Patriots a great deal. But I can say I like them all the time.

    Yeah. Charger v. Pats just isn’t exciting whatsoever. As a whimpering Texans fan, I was hoping the AFC South would be in the SuperBowl once again. Just not the case. Chargers just have the Colts number.

    And as many passes Clark hasn’t dropped, why that one?

    Well from this Pats fan’s perspective, things couldn’t have worked out any better.

    Not only do we end up facing the weaker team in the AFCCG, but the Colts nicked up LT and PR!

    I’d feel bad about Marvin Harrison but I can’t quite shake the bitterness about the fact that I was stuck with him on my fantasy team for eight weeks while he rode the bench.

    Nah, seriously though, he was an excellent player and a class act and it’s a shame that his final season went like that. But he had a long career and got a Super Bowl ring, which is more than a lot of great players can say.

    And now with the Cowboys out, there goes my hopes of a Pats vs Cowboys Superbowl game. Ah well.

    Don’t lose hope yet. The Chargers could still stick it to the Pats on the AFC Championship game. At least, thats what I am praying for.

    Pray is the operative verb, Ed, eh?

    With both Tomlinson’s, and Rivers’ gimping around like full grown tinytims, you’ll need to not only pray, but burn a few votives and perform some painful acts of contrition.

    Sacrificing a chicken or two, might not hurt either…

    My Packers won. That’s all that matters. Truth be told, out of the rest of the teams in the play-offs, the Packers are the only team that can match-up with the Patriots receivers.

    I can’t be but currently torn about seeing Farve end his career with another SB victory!


    Seeing a team with todays schedule go totally undefeated! But hey NE has already won more than the 72 fishes did, so they don’t have to hang their head at all.

    Manning, the colts manning, have not beat SD in the last 3 meetings! No real reason to think they would pull it off this time. Seems that SD has their number, somehow.

    But all in all, the four games played this weekend were excellent! With a couple of them it was like Bball and who would get the last possession.

    The Dal defeat was a sorta surprise but not really as even when the giants field a lousy team they play Dal very big. Today they outed them in a fitting manner, at home in a massive must win for both teams. Oh and another manning beat his daddy’s earmark team as well.

    The indy game was no different.

    Great contests and I hope the better team won. Looking forward to next weekend!

    I desire to see GB against the chargers for a SB, and if GB gets that far then I desire to see Bret get his final trophy. Outside of that, I think it would be great for SD to finally get the big prize as well.

    NE aint about to just roll over in the meantime. If they win next week, then I hope that GB as well loses. Just cuz it really would be sorta nice to see a team take it all with zero defeats, again. Else I’ll root for Farve in his final game of his most wonderful career.

    So it goes for personal fanasty. :)

    I am a died in the wool Pats fan, but I like the Colts/Pats rivalry. A Green Bay/Pats Superbowl would put excitement back into the Bowl.
    However, one game at a time as we have learned, onto the Chargers.

    As a Pats fan I am a bit disappointed as well. If LT and Rivers don’t play next week it could be a very boring game to watch. A Colts/Pats game would certainly been fun to see.

    If its any consolation at least you will still be seeing Peyton Manning every 2 minutes at every commercial break.

    Don’t count out the Giants. They played the Pats close that last week (even though Bill Simmons says the Pats were only sorta trying – what an ass that guy is).

    Giants maybe hit the wall next week, but right now they got some momentum. Look out!

    Three words.

    Fuck the Patriots.

    You’ll have to excuse Tommy…
    He’s a disgruntled Eaglet fan.

    As a die hard Pats fan, I was hoping for Colts/Pats AFCCG. What other AFC matchup currently has more history behind it? SD at NE will be ok, because it really didn’t matter who was going to Foxboro, the Pats are rolling all the way.

    I’ll be sad to M. Harrison retire, but I won’t miss Dungy.
