The Colts Are Total Frauds

The Colts are Frauds

Let me preface this by saying I hate the Colts.  I hate Peyton Manning.  I hate Bill Polian.  I hate Bob Sanders.  I hate Indianapolis fans.  I am a diehard Patriot fan and I hate everything about the Colts.  That being said, I actually feel bad for the players and their fans this morning.  Jim Caldwell and Polian single-handedly destroyed their chance at history yesterday.  How many teams in the history of sports (any sport) has a chance to go undefeated?  You are talking about the chance to go down as the single greatest team in NFL history.  Until another team goes 19-0, there is no dispute, if the Colts had done it this year they would have been considered the greatest.

I just don’t understand the logic of this decision.  They play the starters until the middle of the 3rd quarter, lead by 5 points, and then decide to call it quits.  Whaaat??  The game was 65% over and they decide at that point to give up?  Whaaat??  What must the Colts players think today?  I know they said the right things to the media after the game but what must they be saying in that locker room?  If I were one of them, I would be furious.  Most professional athletes, especially all-time greats like Manning, play the game and hope to leave a legacy.  He had the chance to go down as the best quarterback ever who also lead the best team ever to an undefeated season.  He had that chance taken away from him by his coach on Sunday evening.

All that being said, I still don’t think they will end up winning the Super Bowl – regardless of if they had gone 16-0 or not.  They are a flawed team that has squeaked by too many times this year.  It is just too bad they didn’t even have the chance to lose a game with pride.  Instead, they just laid down and gave up.  That is a cowardly move, in my opinion.

Finally, I was praying that they would pull their starters and lose one of these last two games just so they would not have a chance at 19-0.  So as a Patriots fan, this was the first time in my life I actually rooted for the Jets.

    Well at least the Colts didn’t go 18-0 and play in the Super Bowl and loose to a team that didn’t even have a chance at winning. Yea you weant 18-1, great, but 18-0 doesnt matter if you loose the Super Bowl. And I’m sorry to say the the best NFL team of the decade went to the Colts. No we didnt win 2 out of 4 SB, but we had a better winning percentage. The Colts will beat the Jets and whoever comes out of the NFC.

      At least the Pats had the stones to try for perfection. The Colts were too scared to try.

      Also, the Pats had 3 rings this decade and 3 in 4 years just to be clear. You can enjoy your “most wins in the decade,” I’ll take the rings.
