Pro-bowl players are determined by fan voting, nothing more nothing less. useless stat, imho.<quoted text>
Check me if I am wrong, KEITH, but how many pro-bowl players were on the bench for New England against the RAVENS/EAGLES/JETS. Uh-huh...NONE. The Patriots, who really lost against the Ravens, have EVERYONE and they can only get by a team that was beaten by the 0-13 Dolphins because of a bogus pass interference penalty on 4th down.
As for Jacksonville, they had 2 shots to beat us...DENIED. You see Keith, last year taught me and many of our fans it does not matter what you do in a certain game (i.e. Jacksonville's 500 rushing yards in week 13), but only WHO you are playing, and HOW you are playing in January. That is what matters.
Hey KEITH, stick to basketball, you obviously have NO CLUE about FUT'BOL!!
Funny you call the PI call against the Ravens bogus, but on Nov 4th, the Colts entire offense, save for one Addai run, was based on bogus PI calls. Without bogus PI calls, the Colts don't even have a superbowl from last year. Save it clown, unless you're willing to acknowledge the help your team has received the last 2 years.
By your logic, the Eagles should be in the playoffs, since they almost beat the Pats, and beat the Cowboys yesterday, huh?
It's the NFL! Teams win & lose some inexplicable games. Luckily for the Pats, their bad games are still W's.
Is Tampa peaking because they smashed Atlanta 34-3, while you guys fell behind 10-0 to the Falcons?
DO you guys suck because you should have lost to KC, who's losing streak is as bad as Baltimore's?
How about that near loss to Oakland, where the Colts got away with some extra contact against the Oakland receiver on 4th down? You were missing player's on defense, but only put up 1 offensive td. Does that mean you suck?
You're not the only team facing injuries, even though the media would have you believe that.
Pats: Colvin (starting lb) out to IR, Morris (starting rb) out to IR, Watson (starting te) bad ankle all season, Adalius Thomas (starting lb) bad ankle, Neal (starting o-line) missed a few games, Wilson (starting safety) missed games, Seymour (starting de) missed games and still recovering from major knee surgery, and that's just off the top of my head.
So cry all you want about your excuses for losing a couple, and playing other teams closer than you should, but don't ignore those very same excuses when they apply to other teams. Especially when the 'other' team is 14-0 and doesn't need any excuses.
