one ref signaled that it was rams ball, and he was the ref that you could see on camera the most, but just to the left of the screen you can pick up another ref who was at the same time signaling colts ball. thus the dual posession. never seen that before, but that's where the call came from.

was pretty wacky... ya saw the one guy signal rams ball, then the other ref from the left side of the screen signals colts ball, and then the first ref signals rams ball again... it was like a scene out of some bad sports comedy.

and to get the baseball thread back onto baseball...

actually, Bulger had just been intercepted by the Colts D on the very same play in which he got injured, and the momentum was clearly swinging back towards indianapolis.

but alas, we'll have to notch this one up as still yet another unporoven game for the questionable, over-rated indianapolis colts.

they could win every game by 50, it doesn't matter. patriot fans, much like yankee fans of old, won't give the colts, much like the red sox, any respect until they actually win in foxboro.

so alas... we wait.

The Rams would still have been leading 17-7 at that point (after Indy scored). I think Bulger would have recovered just fine, although I don't know if the Rams still would have won the game. But it certainly would've been a hell of a lot closer and the Rams would have scored even more.

I give credit to the Colts Headache, they played a great 2nd half, the O clicked pretty well and the D caused some big turnovers in the 2nd half that changed the game.
However you even must admit that the vaunted Colts D looked quite pedestrian until the Rams were forced by injury to go to a scrub QB.

Not many teams down 17-7 even end up winning, much less dominating as the Colts did. Usually it's the team DOWN 17-7 that ends up making all the mistakes and getting blown past. The Colts showed guts, character and skill to take that game back the way they did.

Overrated, huh, well then please tell me who is better right now?

Give us Patriots fans some credit here.

It's easy to dismiss the other team if your team has won 7 straight division titles.

Now talking when your team is 3 games back...that takes some real cojones.

The Colts are the best team in the league right now. They've also played an incredibly easy schedule thus far.
Whereas the AFC's other 3 division champs from 2004, the Pats, Steelers and Chargers have all had to play one another, each going 1-1. (strangely the road team won each contest)

We'll see come January/February.

Oh and welcome back to football discussions, haven't seen you since the Colts last loss.

i think the colts are the best team in football... the "over-rated" comment was sarcasm.

At this moment, the Colts are the best. But considering their weak schedule at the start of the season, we won't know how good they really are for a little while.

at the moment the colts have the best record in football...

it will continue this week with the texans (the best 0-5 team in the league)

however, if their schedule hasn't been a factor, indy fans are kidding themselves.

they haven't even seen a team above .500 since week 2.

things get much more interesting after the bye...

the thing that pisses me off with the colt haters... which abound on this board, and elsewhere really... is that they talk about this team like they went 2-14 last year and all of a sudden are a good team because of a weak schedule.

You're missing the point Eli, we know the Colts are a good football team, but they've yet to prove themselves the best, but they and their fans love to declare that Peyton is the best, far superior to Brady and the Colts are the top team in the league. They have won nothing as yet, and their 6-0 start may well be inflated due to weak scheduling to start the season (please don't try and tell me the schedule to date hasn't been a factor), or do they hang "AFC South Division Champion" banners in the RCA dome?
