Accordingly Bob, the Colts will have no excuse available for not winning this game and likewise you will have no excuse available for not giving the Chargers credit if they win. Agreed?

Kravitz you hack, the Colts will blow this team out. The play offs are here and the regular season is history. The Colts are a far better team and San Diego will be a deer in the head lights for the second to last game at the dome.

The Pats are on a mission this year.

The Dolts will be at home, watching the game in 1080i.

Ever since Eli Manning and his family dissed the Chargers at the draft there has been a curse on the Mannings when they play the Chargers. They can't win and never will until they admit they were wrong. Peyton, don't blame us when you lose. Blame your brother.

Is Wes Chandler playing for the Chargers? How about Dan Fouts? No? Then they will probably lose.
good point

csfoster has a very valid point. and as a die hard colts fan, i agree, there would be no excuses. This is playoff football and anything can happen. But with that said, i hope we rip the Bolts a new one. :)

Chargers are toast! Peyton and company will have a whole new game plan for them. We knew we might have to play these guys again. We didn't show them our real offence. 33-10 Colts in a blow out.

Big PaPa take your pizza making skills and leave. I am sure you can find a dive to work in Boston. Maybe you can be Bill the cheater personal pie man. You can spy on the other local greasy spoons.

What a surprise column, Mr. Kravitz. What a brave prediction. The wit was unparalleled. And they pay you too.

If you forget, one of the Colts scores was a QB fumble into the end-zone. You didn't predict that that wouldn't happen again? Wit escape you?

Don't underestimate the Chargers, particularly their defense.

Rivers has a lot more potential than you acknowledge. Jackson and Chambers are fine receivers.

Good luck on your bold prognostications.

The final game played in the dome will be Colts and Jags!
Kravitz is right. Colts by 10 or more.

New England is a great team but they will not beat the Jags. Taylor & company will dominate the game clock with their crushing ground game and no matter how good Brady and Moss are they can't score from the bench.

Colts 17, Jags 14 and Colts return to super bowl to face (probably) Dallas but watch out for the Giants. Brothers facing each other in a super bowl game? Could it be?

i'd like to say the chargers will come in here and the colts will wipe the floor with them. however, i'm not so sure this is going to be an easy game. riding a seven game winning streak is a powerful thing. we're going to have to be clicking on all cylinders. a hard, fought game wouldn't be such bad thing, considering our next stop will be foxborough. it would be better than any practice the coaches could put the team through.

GO COLTS!!!!

If I were the Colts I would change the game plan too. Maybe they shouldn't give up 6 interceptions this time.

Offence? Are you a Canadian?

No Fouts or Chandler anymore.

Ever heard of a player we like to call LT? How about "Lights Out"? YOU WILL! HaHaHa!

That Kravitz guy is funny! He says "If Manning doesn't throw six picks, if the special teams don't give up two touchdown returns, if Vinatieri makes the kicks he usually makes in his sleep, yada yada yada...

That's what they will need to NOT do just to keep from losing AGAIN.

Maybe he should have added "If the Chargers don't show up maybe the Colts could win"

San Diego Super Chargers!

I hope all of these Charger fans come back after their defeat, and take their kicks, they are a spirited bunch, but a little out of their league here.

Colts 38 Chargers 17, see ya in training camp!

Mr. Kravitz states the obvious: If the Colts play up to their capabilities, at home after a bye week, then they should win. You've really put yourself out on limb with that one. Hope you didn't bet your lunch money on it. Of course the Colts don't always play their best against the Chargers. They might even be a little rusty after the bye week. It will have been two weeks since they last played a game, and three weeks since they actually tried to win a game.
"kick it" was asking if Dan Fouts will play. The last I heard, Fouts was in the Hall of Fame in Canton OH. I don't think you will see him on sunday. The Chargers have a QB named Rivers now. He's 26-7 in only his 2nd year as a starter. Thats much better than Fouts after his first two years. Only a broken foot kept him out of the Pro Bowl last year. The Chargers traded Eli Manning to the Giants for Rivers and two draft picks they used to select Shawne Merriman and Nate Kading. Three Pro Bowl players in exchange for Jughead. Not bad.
I hate the Patriots

Lets give credit where credit is due. Atleast the Bolts fans are not on here spewing foul mouthed venom like the Pats fans do. Thanks for keeping it clean Bolts fans. The Patsy fans could learn a thing or two from you.

We really need to "work" Sorgi into the system quickly...Peyton is looking tired and with the demoralizing loss to NE last time in our dome he's probably not our best bet for going into Foxboro if we can somehow make it back there this year...any thoughts Colts fans?
Just one... go get a refill on your meds. You need it.
