No Manning v Manning Superbowl this year! Two great games on Saturday proved all the so called sports experts wrong about who would win. Sproles was great.

Nobody was really picking a manning bowl for the big game. At the beginning of the season believe it or not, everyone was picking the Cowboys over the Chargers in the super bowl. Then when Merriman ended of being out for the season, everyone was picking the Cowboys over the Patriots in the super bowl. And then when neither the Cowboys nor the Pats made the playoffs everyone was picking either the Giants or Panthers ot represent the NFC in the super bowl and either the Steelers or Titans to represent the AFC in the super bowl.

Baltimore wants nothing to do with your sorry azz city.
You can't get any of the REAL Colts from Baltimore to show up for anything you have there.

Well like it or not your steroid addict team was stolen too since they originated in LA. So I guess your team doesn't even own an AFL farm league championship since they won that when they were the LA Chargers.

And just so you know, even though it's a bit off topic, the Pistons are far more stolen then the Colts!!!!!!!! Since they originated in Ft. Wayne Indiana and were there over 20 years. Then Indiana went over 20 years with only a farm league AAA Team, ABA Team, & WHL team that barley even lasted 2 years when the Pistons moved. While BALTIMORE on the other hand still had the Oriels when the Colts moved and only went 11 years without a football team. And at least the Colts didn't turn all their fans into convicts like the Pistons did when they moved to Detroit!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah, I almost for got. About 30-40% of the current fans are carry overs from when the team was in Baltimore any ways. So there I rest my case Baltimore does still have it's diehard Colts fans!!!!!!!!!! And just for the record, the only fans of the Pistons are in Detroit. Indiana wants nothing to do with that stolen team who turned all their fans into convicts!!!!!!!!!!

And again have a good time watching Pittsburgh (A team the Colts UNLIKE THE CHARGERS beat at Pittsburgh and could have beaten in the playoff) give your team the beat down they would have gotten from the Colts had their little prick punter not gotten so lucky on all of the steroid addict Chargers punts.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot here's another reason why the Pistons are more stolen then the Colts. When Baltimore lost the Colts, they were with in 1 hour from Washington who had an NFL, NHL, & NBA team!!!!!!!!

While people in the Indy/Ft Wayne area only had Chicago which was 3 times as far from them as Washington was for the people in Baltimore!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I guess Baltimore doesn't want the so called REAL Colts any more since they got the Ravens now.

And just for the record, the Baltimore Colts never had near as good a season as the Indianapolis Colts did in 2006!!!!!!!!!!

And Johnny U never broke as many records and Manning did anyways, he just won more championships NOT SUPER BOWLS, because he had a much better defense around him and there weren't near as many teams in the NFL back then when the Chargers were in the farm league AFL!!!!!!!!!!

But they were still a good team. And like it or not, the Pistons are far more stolen then the Colts!!!!!!!!!!
