Brady did not 'have his way' with them. After the Colts were up 28-7, they became lax and complacent, and slacked up. I felt the same way, I'd been so intense and my stomach was churning and my heart was pounding and I was so uptight, but once they got that big lead I relaxed and let go. I think they did too, and they shouldn't have. Then I had to get intense again and worry for the rest of the game that something stupid was going to happen. I was worried until the last minute. The Patriots do not have a better team than the Colts anymore, but they did have a psychological advantage because they haunted them like an evil spirit. I do believe it was finally exorcized tonight. The torch has been passed. But they still have to bring it home.

Oh, and what about that non-touchdown Dungy didn't challenge? He rolled right over on it, and if they had that taken away they might not have scored a touchdown there. They were dominated on all sides of the ball. But I want you guys to know I did not stop worrying until the end!

I don't know what the deal is with TO, they say his attitude is bad for the team, but what is more disruptive to a team than losing your second best player in a controversial way halfway through the season? The Eagles just shot themselves in the foot. Yeah he's a bigmouth but he's not the only one in the league, I don't think he should be suspended. I say send him to the Raiders, he and Randy Moss would be unstoppable on and off the field, if they didn't kill each other first!

Troy Brown's TD was entirely legit. The replay that MNF showed after the ensuing kickoff was a terrible angle -- his back is blocking most of the view. You can see that the ball touches the ground, but this is *not* sufficient to conclude that the receiver has lost control of the ball. They also aired a replay showing a front view of the catch, and from there it was clear that his arm was secured around the ball. For whatever reason, they didn't show this replay a second time.

Yeah, but ask yourself a question: would you want to play with him? Would you play at your best if he were on your team?

Don't hold your breath on that one...the Pats will easily win the AFC East.
They've essentially got 8 weeks to figure out how to patch together a secondary in an attempt to have any playoff success.

Undefeated....you care to wager on that one?
They srtill have Cincy, Pitt, Jax, SD and Sea on the schedule, they're gonna lose, probably end up 14-2.

Clearly they are the class of the league...anything short of a Superbowl victory will be a failure. They'll have home field and an indoor Superbowl, so like the 2001 Rams, they are gonna be heavy favorites to win it all, and if they play at the top of their game, they shall. That will play out over the next 3 months.

Looks that way, until of course you look at the numbers...both threw 3 TDs, Peyton was picked once, Tom zero, and Brady's QB rating was higher.
The Pats loss doesn't fall at the feet of Brady like so many of the Colts' recent Foxboro failures deservedly fell at Peyton's feet.

With a defense playing like it has the past few weeks, allowing teams like Buffalo as well as Indy to move at will, control large chunks of the game clock and convert 3rd downs at an alarming rate, The Pats won't go anywhere when the playoffs start.
Bill has a lot of work to do over the next 8 weeks.

I'd still take Tom's three Super Bowls to Peyton's none, but that's just me.

So do you think Bernie Kukar is on Bill Belichick's Christmas card list?
Long before the challenge thing there was a very funny lip reading moment.
4th qurter, 11:07 left, after the much discussion and eventual false start call on Kazcur, ABC is showing aerial shots of Gillette, then pans down to Belichick, in the foreground you can see the ref running in and stopping play before the next snap (reset of the game clock), very clear on Bill's lips: "What's this motherf*cker doing now?"
Good stuff.

Congrats to the Colts, played extremely well.

I don't think I'd go that far. The Colts' offense dominated the Pats' D, no question.
The Colts' D was far from dominant.
Brady was perfect in the first half, if not for Dillon's fumble, it is either 14-14 or 14-10.
Indy's secondary looked mediocre (which is light year's ahead of NE's secondary at this point). On Branch's touchdown, it looked like the CB left Branch in the end zone so he could go cover the free safety .
Be sure that the Colts are the team to beat at this point, hands down, in the NFL. But the defense didn't dominate anyone last night, much like they didn't dominate the Rams a few weeks back on MNF and would have been in some trouble if Pick Bulger doesn't get hurt with a 17-0 lead.
The offense is still gonna hafta carry them.

well yes... but one could also argument that the colts were marching on the patriots at will... and if not for the interception, it is either 21-7 or 17-7 before the pats even tough the ball again.


let's get one thing perfectly clear... the colts dominated this game. from start to finish, they had complete control of the game... as a team. was the defense spectacular? no... did the offense make a mistake or two? yea... but they controlled the ball, they took the pats out of their game plan, they answered every mistake not be folding like a cheap suit... like they have in years past... but by simply going back out the next time and marching right back down the field. they had an answer for everything the patriots threw at them last night.

now that that's said and done... they still need to get the job done in the playoffs, otherwise this is meaningless. like the red sox finally beating the yankees... woo hooo... it's super, but if they didn't win the world series, it would've meant shit.


and as for undefeated... yes, i agree with you... i don't think they'll go undefeated... but they might. i wouldn't be shocked at this point... everyone was in full agreement that this game was by far their toughest one on the schedule... and they just smoked the pats. so it could happen... but i agree with you again... at the very least they'll go 14-2 and get the 1 seed throughout the playoffs, straight into deeetroit city.

and yes... anything short of a super bowl victory by the colts this season is a failure.


and how sweet would it be if peyton failed against eli

and on a side note... how 'bout the sour puss on tom brady's face at the end of the game last night, huh? he certainly doesn't take losing big games well... which is a good thing, of course... but i don't know if i'd show it on the field like that.

then again... it was the first big game as a pro that he's ever lost... so i imagine he's not used to it.

The Colts' defense certainly didn't have control of the Pats' offense - however, when your team's offense controls the ball like they did last night, it's really not going to matter in the end.

It won't have played out that way, but I think Headache means that when the schedule came out in the summer, this was the toughest game facing the Colts, that combined with the stigma of past failures hanging over them, it loomed largest certainly.
If the Pats have their full defense on hand, it might be the Colts' toughest game, but with the collection of scrubs in the secondary currently, it wasn't as tough as some of their upcoming games should be.

Word is Brady gets pissed if he loses a locker room backgammon game.
Very competitive.
