Looks like 'some' people who never come here to discuss football and speculate and predict with the rest of us only come here to gloat after the fact. Well it's easy to talk after the game. What's up with that, afraid to say anything ahead of time, afraid you might lose? We all take that chance. It's what it's all about.

And yes, the Colts' receivers were held and manhandled to the point it was ridiculous. Dungy is not going to tell them to 'push back' because he's a class act and doesn't believe in playing dirty. If the Colt recievers had pushed back, likely they'd have been called on it. It's clear who some of the refs were for. I saw some of the same stuff against the Eagles in the NFC game, and Collinsworth commented on it. But it couldn't have been the league behind it, you know the league, and the media, would much rather have had a Manning vs. McNabb, James (who is called "The Edge' btw) vs. Staley matchups to hype up. Now we're stuck with a lot of drips and no names. I guess the Carolina 'Cinderella' story will be the angle they go for.

5 yard push rule its allowed, and it almost always occured within that radius.

what about that ridiculous delay of game that was NOT called on manning in what was it... the 3rd or 4th quarter? the clock was at 00 for at least 3 or 4 seconds, at least. no call, no flag, nothing.

this is the superbowl i wanted to see, two hard nosed D's, a Cinderella, and the cinderella of the past in line to possibly win their 2nd bowl in 3 years...

luck favors the prepared team, too.

14 wins in a row are anything but luck.

For the record, I didn't come here to "gloat" or anything of the sort. And I wasn't "afraid" to say anything before either. If I felt it was that easy to analyze someone's psyche or motivations over the internet, I might feel that some people might be bitter or something I thought I was free to post some silly comments about the game

The reason I "never come here" to discuss football is that I don't feel welcome here, just like I don't in many other areas of Interference.

Have a good day everyone I guess this thread will degenerate into some sort of endless back and forth argument. I think the Patriots are a great team, and I thought the same about the Colts as well.

Like Stl said, within 5 yards, the receivers can be hit, KC was stupid in letting them get free run off the line last week and look where it got them. The Pats played physical...boohoo Colts, you got hit in a football game. Remember its football, not ballet.
And Smeagle Dungy is a class act and won't play dirty...did you ever watch the Minnesota teams Smeagle was the Defensive coordinator for, or more appropriately the Tampa teams he coached until 2 yrs ago? What the Bucs used to do under Smeagle made what the Pats did on Sunday look like 2 hand touch street football. The receivers don't push back cause they'll end up on their ass (Marvin Harrison is like 155 lbs), and Peyton would have been sacked 8 times.
You did see the Colts DB's chucking the Pats receivers as well, right. Or did the Tv's in the midwest go to commercial then?

I don't talk before hand because i'm not that interested in following football

I never saw a rule in this form stating that you can't be excited your team is going to the playoffs (in a thread that is clearly dedicated for that)!

Neither did I I thought that's what this thread clearly was dedicated to, and "why the Patriots rock" suggests to me a thread to celebrate the Patriots, not to come in and bash them. But then again, I'm not qualified to comment I guess, or to post in this forum

On the grabbing thing: what I mean the blatant grabbing was on the Colts' last drive, where the receivers were past 5 yards, standing in range to catch a first down pass when the Pat secondary had literal handfuls of their jerseys. Manning made the holding motion with his arm, sure a flag would come, but no. This happened until they were out of downs. Of couse if he had not thrown so many ints it would not have come to that. He was damn lucky to still have a shot that late, and to have it sort of taken from them with the dirty play sucked. It wasn't normal and the announcers made comments. Same with the play in the Eagles-Panthers game.


On the 'gloating' thing: Well your team has been in the playoffs for a couple weeks now, were you not happy then, or only after they won so you can brag, that's how it looked. Several of us have been here discussing the playoffs and all the teams since we found out the matchups, and taking our guesses and making comments, so it looked like some fans only came to brag after it was over and wouldn't venture a bet before. Sorry if I was wrong about you

But yeah I'm depressed that at least one of my teams didn't go {Colts and Eagles are 2 of my faves, and the Vikes who screwed up down the stretch} so I could dig out of my miserable, dark and pathetic existence for a week or so saving all the stories and pics and havingn something to brighten my day. Yeah so it feels better to have someone to blame. So shoot me. And fuck football. I've been a devoted fan since I was a kid but it's too emotional and never pays off for me. I can't take it anymore.

I guess it's because I've always been somebody who lived and died with every play,every game, my heart pounding until my chest hurts, that I do kinda feel resentment toward people who don't really follow the game that close just come in to go 'oh whoopee we rock' at the end. And that's just how I feel and I'm not going to lie about it. But I won't post here anymore, I'm not even going to click on this forum, so no need to chew me out.

handfuls of jerseys? please, they were barely even touching them, and they have every right to come into contact with them if theyre looking up at the ball- once the ball is up in the air its anybodys right to the ball.

i really had no preference on who won the new england vs indy game, yet there was blatant holding and grabbing past 5 yards and while the ball was in the air. all of the analysts have commented on it during and after the game. ron jowarski, the only guy on espn i respect, has commented greatly and how the colts recievers were mugged, but i guess if the refs arent gonna call it in the postseason, then i guess its smart to do. my only question is why the refs dont feel the need to call it.

i dont see why they allow one set of rules during the regular season and a different set of rules in the postseason, what is this, the nhl or something?
What?

Come on, you know you see receivers push off to get open all the time.

Different refs have different levels of tolerance for this sort of thing, and football players know they have to be prepared for it.

Well, you're gonna get it anyway.

Cripes, I decide to visit the bulletin board for the first time in ~6 months to post a rather lighthearted observation about the music at Foxboro Stadium (not a word about the game itself was said, if you read my original post), and all of a sudden the Pats haters hijack the thread and accuse me of being an unknowledgeable fair-weather fan. How do you know if I am or am not a real Pats fan? Do I need to send you a resume?

If you're bitter about the playoffs, spew your venom in your own thread.
