Overall, if they play like that against New England, the Patriots will have the game won in the first half! I thought the Colts played sloppy and there will be no miracle second half comebacks next Sunday if the Colt's offense does not get their shi# together in the first half!

Even tho they looked bad in the first half yesterday. They will have it together next Sunday. They played two games this week away from home so they was a little tired. They will be at home against New England so I think we will have that game in the bag. It sure is going to be the best game of the season tho.

We will beat New England. Did last year and will again this year. It will not be easy but we will win. For the doubters just compare the schedules. Look at who we've played vs. who the Patriots have played this season. We need the defense to put the rush on Brady and we'll be fine. Get well Marvin. GO COLTS!!!

I like the poise, weathering the storm and all, but as you've noted, this has become a pattern...coming back from very slow starts...the offense sputtering around early while mostly the defense weathers the storm. Remember the AFC Title game a year ago: Just before half-time, it looked like it was over against the Pats. But Ponies "weathered the storm." This would be a nice to time to start a new habit, a new pattern, and try to get more offensive consistency early in games. Unlike the Pats, who get six free games this year playing in the AFC East, the Colts have a very tough schedule beyond the Patriots game...SD, KC, ATL, JAC, BAL, OAK, HOU, TEN. How about we create the STORM, not just weather it?

I think the Colts can beat the Patriots only if the referees are not doing what they've done so far. They start call penalties the minute a team starts playing competitive with the Patriots. We'll have to outplay the ref's as well as the Patriots. Can we request ref's not with a "Patriot agenda"?

Go Colts. Let's make a statement to coach B next week to end his on the field statements!

The Colts have taken a beating weekend and week out this year, while the Media has suited up to hype this as a seven game season. Lets hope the Ref's show up and penalize New England's twelfth man.

My biggest concern with this weeks game is how dirty the Pats are. They will do anything to win, and they are not satisfied unless they embarrass their opponent.
I expect a lot of late hits and unnecessary roughness(without penalty of course) from the Pats.

8-0 vs. 7-0. They are both undefeated for a reason. Both are great teams, but the Colts will win big on Sunday.

This sundays game is the biggest regular season matchup in a long time. But the important part is that its a REGULAR season game vs a non divisional opponent. Does this game determine homefield adavantage in the playoffs? So far it does. But who knows what paths these two teams will take after Sundays game. All I'm trying to say is win or lose on Sunday the season isn't over. With that being said Colts roll.

I also like how the NFL conviently scheduled NE's bye week AFTER this game. I guess Goodell wants Brady to get plenty of rest after he plays an actual team.

I'm concerned with the lack of mention regarding the wicked late hit Manning took in the Carolina game. At least a flag was thrown; but, what a malicious hit... Manning showed his toughness, though... He kept his "poise", and continued to dismantle the Panthers. Great game.

We have got to come out ready to play, and plsy fair. We know that New England does not know what play fair means. They take their cue from the coach and he has already been proven as a cheater.
We cannot afford to depend on a last half comeback, we have got to get the upper hand going in. And lets hope that our players all get out of this one healthy, because they are going to be trying every trick in the book.
And can we ask for substitute refs? The league is still having a hard time getting over the fact that a team from a little venue won the Super Bowl.

If the colts get off too a shaky start with the pats they will be blown out! This pats team is great, but i feel someone soon will find a way to beat the pats! Unfortunately I love you colts dearly from my heart, but I don't think where going to win this week. I do feel the colts will study this replys and win the real big the Afc Championship! Harrison and Hopefully Jackson will be well them!
