Colts!

Is Manning a football god, or what?

Best QB in the game by far. He's making people forget John Elway.

My favorite team is whoever is playing the Colts.

I concur that Manning is one of the best ever, however... Faulk had the ball at least to the 30 on that fourth down play (That spot was horrible).... and that pass interference call on the preceding drive - guess "Homer" was the officiating crew chief last night.

yesterday was a bad day for me

Indy won. My sundays end up very happy when philly and pitts win, and when dallas and indy suck wind.

This definitely hasn't been a good football year for me.

Mixing sports, I would add the Maloofs to that mix (and Stern, the NBA Commissioner). They're trying to blackmail the taxpayers of metro Sacramento to pay for a *new* arena when the paint is still barely dry on Arco. Screw 'em; these billionaires can build their own sandbox, and if its not in Sacramento, no biggie. Its not like the Kings have tradition like the Celtics or Lakers or Rockets. Who wants to pay bokuu dollars for nosebleed seats to watch a bunch of overpaid underacheivers play badly when the average playground game in the park behind my house is *far* more entertaining (and moreover, FREE)?

He didn't have possession for it to be forward progress. I thought spot was right on.

As for Belichick's decision to gamble - what an arrogant d-bag. Glad it got shoved right down his throat.

I think he went for it because he knew his defense was already done.

Watched every minute of that game with my father last night. I live in New England but there is no doubt Manning is one tough hick. Brady's a cutie but Manning seems to be getting it done far more often in the last several years. My dad says Brady's wife and lifestyle are killing his career. Maybe, but I think that idiot New England coach going for it on his own 28 with 2 minutes left has something to do with the team's lack of success. Bill must be losing his mind.
