I think the Pats looked weak and average against the Titans, a game the Titans could easily taken if not for a stupid 'grounding' penalty and a few other lame misses. Oh and the Chiefs also got that lucky breakaway runback. Even though I believe in defense, there is something to be said for an awesome offense and outscoring people. A 51-49 victory is just as successful as a 51-10 one, the result is the same. As long as my team pulls it out, I don't care how much yardage they gave up. But it does make the game more stressful!

On gambling, I'm glad Headache has learned young not to waste money that way. He's not even renewing his premium membership until he pays off his Christmas bills. Chizip, I have suffered much financially, am bankrupt and live in a crap neighborhood thanks to my 'exciting' and 'risk' and 'what the hell you only live once' philosophy of my younger days. It was stupid. Hold onto your money. Nothing is 'exciting' about being broke and miserable in your 30's. If you don't believe me you'll have to find out the hard way, while Headache already knows better.

While Vinatieri is good, no one is better than Vanderjadt (okay so I misspelled it) The Colts' kicker is flawless this year, and can hit easily from 50+. I'd take him in a crunch over anyone in the league.

Lets see how vanderjagt kicks in Foxboro Sunday.
The Colts played 1 game in a cold weather city this year, Buffalo, and it was a record 70 F on Nov 23 in Buffalo.
The coldest game the Colts played was last Sunday's 55 degree ice bowl in KC.

before anyone canonizes me...

i never got into sports gambling because i played college basketball and it was an ncaa violation. playing on the d3 level, i'm sure i never would've been caught... but i just didn't even want to take the slight risk. on the other hand, betting on the horsies isn't an ncaa violation... so whenever the triple crown came around... giddiup partner.

I really never saw how weather was that much of a factor since the guys on the teams come from all over the place. Like people used to say Marino couldn't do anything in the cold because he was a Dolphin, but he grew up in Pittsburgh and played his college ball there. It might not even be cold on Sunday. But if the Colts had just made that fourth down play against the Pats last time they played the game would be in Indianapolis. Or they could have not lost to Jacksonville. I still think they're the hotter team and the Patriots are very average right now. Anything can happen in any game.

BTW anybody but me old enough to remember the dreaded "snow plow" game from the early 80's?

Yes he did light a fire under the whole team's asses last year by complaining he didn't think Peyton, Dungy or some others were trying hard enough. I was afraid he'd be cut, but they didn't get mad they realized he was right and it's helped them!

If he hasn't done anything in the clutch yet, it means it's never come down to him because they were so far ahead they didn't need a field goal. Maybe he will get a chance to prove himself this week!

I believe it was Dec 1982, can't remember the guys name, but he was on work release from prison plowing the yard markers and during a timeout, strayed from his path to plow a spot for John Smith's winning field goal for a 3-0 Pats win over the Dolphins. Yeah I'm old enough. In fact I watched it from my freshman college dorm room, how's that for old?

The game would still be in Foxboro. remeber that the "Average" Patriots finished 14-2(and now on a 13 game winning streak) while the superior Colts were 12-4.
