Please. What do you want, people to stand up and cheer him on while he tries to score points against your current team?

It's the middle of a game. You route for your team, period. There will be plenty of time to cheer for him after his playing days are over.

No you don't have to cheer him. But going out of your way to boo a key part of your "dynasty" is petty, but whatever.

Hell Jeff Suppan will probably leave the Cardinals this offseason because another team will offer more money. If/when he does come back to pitch against the Cardinals I would cheer for him when he makes his first appearance. I certainly wouldn't boo him after every pitch.

If the Patriots manage to win this game now, it will cement Indianapolis (and Peyton) in the minds of the world as perennial chokers.

If the Colts win, the monkey is not only off their back, but dead and half-rotten.

Go Indy

And has anyone else noticed that this is the very first Sunday- or Monday-night game that has actually been any good? Every single other late game has either been close but very, very bad (Chicago vs. Arizona) or a complete and utter blowout.

And as I type this, Indianapolis just picked off Brady for the fourth time with 1:18 left.

Crown their ass!!

Pats over Colts is one of the easiest I've ever seen.
No bitching...but I guess you couldn't get through the week with at least ONE stupid comment!

Oh knock it off already Chizip. I dare you to tell me that you'd act differently if Pujols, Carpenter, Eckstein, etc. signed with the Cubs.

The Red Sox beat the Cardinals in the World Series, that offseason Renteria shunned the Cardinals generous offer for a bigger one in Boston. The next year Boston came to play in STL and Renteria got a standing O before his first AB.

I guarantee you if Eckstein was low balled on an offer and ended up signing with the Cubs, he'd get cheered in his first return to STL. Maybe it's a midwest vs the east cost type of thing.

If a former player on your team steps into the batter box, or a former pitcher gets to the mound initially, you can applaud him politely, but once the batter is trying to concentrate on the next pitch, or the pitcher is getting ready to unwind, it's gametime, and you do whatever to distract them, including booing.

And that's even more prominent in a football game when a former kicker is lining up for a field goal. You boo, you taunt, you do whatever you can to try to get him to miss (and despite the loss, it seemed to have some effect - he missed two field goals, something that doesn't happen too often).

I think what you are saying is more petty, quite honestly. Get over it already.

At what point do the Colts get into Brady's head?

Four interceptions including one on the game-tying drive. Reminds me of a certain AFC championship a few years back.



On a different note, I agree with Chizip. Booing Vinatieri was petty. He won two superbowls for you! More than being petty it is stupid. Like Chizip said, maybe I'm using a midwest mindset to look at a coastal thing.

Congrats to Indy for a good game tonight. They showed their toughness. They are the class of the NFL...

...for the regular season, of course.

I have seen players leave teams in the midwest (and I am NOT talking about the Cubs )and come back to boo birds.

In reality, the Pats could not pay Adam. It's just a reality of the current game. If the pat fans want to rally around booing a former player, so be it.

What was amazing about the interceptions was that three of them came on tipped balls. You don't see that too often.

So really, you can't put the blame on Brady for the tips, so I guess his head will be ok...

I said "crown their ass", but I didn't say it would be for anything more than the AFC South.

Actually, having a tipped ball intercepted is worse than making a bad throw for an interception. You can make sure you don't repeat the bad throw but tipped balls are unexpected. So if the Pats see the Colts in the playoffs, don't expect a big game out of Brady. Two losses at home while being outplayed by Manning, I'd say that might get to his head if you believe a team can get into a player's head.

I don't think Brady will be rattled by a regular season game. I certainly don't think you can expect Brady not to have a big game in the playoffs because of a couple of tipped balls. He's only what, 10-1 all-time in the playoffs.

And I've been saying it all along, but I actually want the Patriots to play the Colts in Indy again. They've done very well there, and we all know how much Brady likes playing in domes. I'm more concerned with the bye.
