The Colts do not have a winning attitude to carry them through the entire season. They choke because of they do not want to win badly enough.
It's an intangible attribute that the Colt organization does not possess. The 2 games the organization decided ahead of time to give up on and accept losing were EXACTLY the 2 games the first string should have stayed in the game and done what needed to be done to win the games........

A team does whatever it takes to win the Championship. The only way to the championship game is to be in and win the playoffs. The experience that Painter gained in his roughed up time would have been invaluable if for any reason Manning had to leave the game for even one play.
Coach Caldwell doesn't have a psychic friend like you do to tell him that it would not be necessary.

Maybe you were in the can at the time but in the game that I was watching, even after the first on-side kick off in SB history, the Colts were driving toward a possible over time game score. One false step by Wayne or one great move by Porter caused the only interception of the game. It was a good tight game.
So you think that if the Colts had the right attitude that they would have run the Saints out of the place?

<quoted text> Tracy Porter made a great play.
The on-side kick was a gutsy call. Congrats to Coach Peyton. It took that kind of football to beat the Colts.
Because the Colts did everything they could to come into the game with everything they had.
I thought that a couple of things sealed the deal for the Colts, after they jumped out 10-zip and the Saints die not fold I think it took some of the wind out of the Colts. The last field Goal in the first half hit hard, the Colts only to be up by 4, after their start. I am sure that the Colts spent the entire half time in the locker room talking about and scripting the first 5 to 10 plays for when they got the kick off and when the on sides kick worked it seemed that the Saints were the quicker team that wanted it more. I will not throw Manning under the bus because 7 times in 10 he will drive them down the field for the score. I am glad to see Drew Breeze get his recognition, he has been in the shadows of Peyton, Brady and Big Ben for too long. I hope that he gets more credit and gets more endorsements.

Phil Sims said at the start of the 2nd half that it was bad news for the Saints that Manning was going to get the ball after studying the Saint D during the half. So the on-side kick was a clutch play.
Yeah, the goal line stand would have been great if the Saints hadn't come right back with the FG.
Cool Brees is a lot better QB then I thought. He did get Purdue into the Rose Bowl.

I think the quality of the game can be measured in that there was only one interception and it was a killer.

Do you mean that I should have said "a team does whatever is necessary to TRY to win the championship"? Your opinion being based on that the Colts did not win.
However, it is your next statement that is, I think, worded wrong and the crux of the argument. "Winning" should mean winning the Super Bowl. That is the goal of the season.
The Colts #1 priority was to win the Super Bowl. Once homefield playoffs was secured, the priority necessitated the move to not risk injury to first string players.

The Colts had enough intangible attribute to beat the Ravens, the Jets and make XLIV one of the best Super Bowl games.
