I didn't bitch this week, as some people predicted I would.

Pats over Colts is one of the easiest I've ever seen.

Well, if Belichick can manage to grease up the field enough, I think the Pats can pull it off.

Otherwise I think I'm going to stick with the Colts, although every sinew of my being screams that it's a very bad call to think Peyton can win another one in Foxboro.

We've had a couple of problems this year. We probably need to work on those.

yeah because we all know that shitty field conditions only affect one team.

Andy's not talking about the field. He's talking about everything.

Of course not, but the Patriots are used to playing on a shitty field in shitty weather. The Colts are used to playing on a good turf field in a nice, climate-controlled dome. Either way you slice it, a poor field still adds up to an advantage for the Patriots.

And what's with the Miami Dolphins seemingly beating the best team in the league every year, but they can't beat the shittiest teams? Didn't they break a Pats unbeaten streak a couple years ago, too? The irony is incredible.

i went with the colts last year because at the time they were far and away the better team.

they are not this year. i gotta go with the pats, but i wouldn't be stunned either way.

and the league does have to look into the way they schedule games a little... if the colts went to new england last year, if they play again, the next game should be in indy. giants had the same issue... they went to seattle last year, then this year they had to go back there again. it makes no sense... but, alas, it is what it is.

i'll be far more interested in next sunday's game, anyways

giants start eli, tiki and the practice squad, still manage to squeek out an ugly one, and now with the bears loss, the winner of next week's game takes over the #1 playoff seed (bears are the #1 seed as of now... giants win next week, both teams are 7-2, giants would hold the head to head tie breaker)

Wishful thinking will get you nowhere.

After all he's done for them, I dont understand all the hatred New England fans have for Vinatieri.

Despite having lots of room under the salary cap, management didn't offer him a contract worth his full value. Don't blame Vinatieri for that.

Hatred? That's quite the exaageration. The guy is no longer with the Patriots - why would you cheer for someone on the other team? When Vinatieri retires someday, you can bet there will be plenty of accolades thrown his way by everyone in New England, but there's no reason to do it now.

And I blame Vinatieri as much as the Patriots for not getting something done. It takes two to tango.

He was a big part of their 3 championships, and now New England fans boo him every time he steps on the field? Seems a little classless.
