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.
