gee, i was hoping to watch a game of football, not rain-wind-snowball.
colts are a fair-weather offense.
as great i think the pats are, the game woulda been very different had they been in a dome.
I agree with, but at the same time I think football is not meant to be played inside on carpet. It’s a game of the elements. And that’s why teams play the regular season and fight for home-field(or dome-field) advantage.
football was never meant to be played in a dome, and the RCA dome will be replaced in two years anyways…
manning is overrated, he’s the best qb in the game now, but not the best in history like alot of people say. Plus I could never stand payton manning, i mean honestly, he look like he has down syndrome. It’s almost impossible to guard receivers these days in the NFL, you can hardly touch them after five yards, i would love to have seen Marino play in his prime in this day and age with the receivers manning has. He would have thrown for 60 easy.
the colts, as I expected, are a fairweather team, and not only that, have absolutely no secondary to speak of. Nick Harper? He’s a running joke in Indianapolis, whenever we would run routes in practice even the IU coaches would be like “damn! you got nick harpered (burnt on defense)”
the best, correction, only thing the colts have going for them defensively is dwight freeney, and he’ll be gone soon enough when the colts realize they have no money to spend on defense after overpaying manning.
wufguy, i dont understand your post. weather is an aspect of football, as football is really the only of the 4 real sports that doesnt cancel games to weather. The icebowl, the mud bowl, the tuck rule vs. oakland, weather is part of football lore. Otherwise, it’s just arena football on a larger scale.
Christ, am I the only one who appreciates the old NFL films of lambardi cheering up the packers in the cold of the 60’s, or Jim Brown running thru the defense in windy cleveland, or John Riggins mauling people over in the muddy rainy arena that was RFK. Its part of the game.
All i will say is this. The Colts should be gratefull that Ty Law, Tyrone Poole, and Richard Seymour were on the injured list. Otherwise, they wouldnt have scored a single point, and as history tells us, Peyton would have probably thrown two touchdowns.
To Ty Law going the other way.
I dont even care if we lose to pittsburgh in the AFC championship game or whomever in the superbowl, but fuck if we were going to lose to some soft indoor team with a special needs quarterback.[/quote]
just saying that i enjoy watching the colts and i wanted them to win because i am not a pat fan. don’t get me wrong, pats are awesome, i just wanted to watch the colts go all the way.
can you imagine i was hoping for nice weather?
btw, pats will maul pittsburgh next week.
