And this is a good comparison, this year's Super Bowl combatants do somewhat resemble the Super Bowl XXV combatants a bit.
it is... the juggernaut afc offense vs. the big time D with a suspect QB.

perhaps we're looking at vinatieri wide right?

WTF is it with 'pushouts' anyway? No matter who it is or what team he's on, it's lame. What, he'd have scored IF he wasn't pushed out? But he WAS! What's the point of the coverage? That's almost as bad as saying 'well he WOULD have gone all the way IF he wasn't tackled back at the 20'

Me too. I cried when they won, I couldn't believe it!

Same here, football is hard on my heart! It beats weird the whole game, and the more worrysome it is the worse it gets. I can totally see myself dropping dead of heart failure during a game someday.

an airbore player has the right to come down in bounds, and if it is deemed that he would have come down in bounds if not for the push it is considered a catch.

the difference of course is that a player who's pushed out of bounds can't help himself, where as a player who is tackled could at least attempt to avoid the tackle.

wether ya think it's a silly rule or not, it is the rule, and he was clearly pushed out on that touchdown.

oh, and the pats scored 34 points... minus seven equals, well, you can figure it out.

Well, to be fair, there were lucky fumble recoveries by linemen on both teams. On the Colts' recovery, Jeff Saturday was clearly a few inches outside the end zone when he recovered the ball.

It would have been third down had the Patriots challenged the call, and there is a small chance the Pats could have held the Colts to fewer than 7 points on that possession.

well of course Colts merchandise has popped up everywhere...I mean you always see Colts stuff during football season, but now every place has AFC Champs shirts, and you see a lot more people wearing Colts stuff than usual.

Monday of course all anyone could talk about was the game... (ironically, Roosevelt Colvin graduated from my high school. how he managed to go pro playing for such a shitty football team I do not know, we must have actually won games back then ). next week is gonna be Colts spirit week, we're decorating the school and everything. I'm pretty sure Friday no one will want to do anything, and attendance will likely be low the following Monday if the Colts win...some private schools have already officially cancelled school

Atomic Bono, I hope your school will close in celebration the day after!

I'm glad the people there are enjoying it, they should! It's been a long time coming and they deserve it!

I loved Colvin when he played for the Bears. I hated letting him go...

Off topic so I apologize. Do you guys enjoy Terry Bradshaw? Not as a player. I mean on Fox. Does he bug you as much as he bugs me? Just wondering.

I want to acknowledge the LACK of trolling and trash talking by Bears fans on Colts boards. There was way too much of it before the Ravens and Patriots games by fans of those teams (then of course they all crawled off and hid after the games.) What few Bears fans I do see posting are very gracious, say they only want a good game and may the best team on that day win. Maybe it's because (from what I've seen) most Bear fans are also Cub fans, and know how it is to suffer with your team for so many years. They aren't assholes. (nor are the ones here)

please... there are plenty of pat fans still posting daily, taking their licks and getting over it. and those pat fans will continue to post in this section of the forum year 'round.

you, however, completely disapeared from this section of the forum after the colts lost last year and only re-appeared at playoff time.

pot calling the kettle black, me thinks.

and no, this is not me picking on you. this is me offering a logical rebuttle to your statement.

I was talking about COLTS BOARDS, not even this site!

I always leave when the season is over because I don't really care much about any sport besides football. I did pop in briefly for the NCAA tourney but chickened out and left. I have been afraid of some of you guys messing with me, I really don't like it. And the reason I only reappeared late in the season is because, if you hadn't noticed, I took a long hiatus from this board for several reasons other than football, there were 2 or 3 months there I didn't post AT ALL, not even in PLEBA, I wasn't only hiding from this place.

That is my logical rebuttal because it's true.
