NOW the greatest Cheaters of all time, are also the greatest Chokers of all time. Karma!- We're blessed to be a part of the Manning family, and I think they're blessed to have our loyal support. This season couldn't have been scripted ANY better for them, and probably for us. It was a timeless treasure to watch the first-family of football share that experience and achievement together, in successive years - beating the bad guys. This was nearly Biblical. If God was busy doing other, more important things... you could've fooled me.

It's pleasant to see you report something positive that doesn't question someone's personal values. The game was perfect for me (and lots of others) because now we do not have to hear about the Pat's 19 and 0 season for the rest of our life's!

The game was fantastic and pleased perhaps 95% of the Country. It was great to see Peyton share the excitement of Eli's dramatic beat down of New England. And yes..with Booger and Freeney returning next year, the Colts may have a D-line as good as the Giants.

I agree 100% with Bob. Don't rest the starters at all, even in the last quarter of the last game. Plenty of proof that the NFL is as much about momentum as it is talent.

And I hope the Colts coaching staff can get the personnel back and improve where necessary to get a D as good as the Giants. The Giants D was awesome to behold, especially after watching team after team fail to pressure Brady all season. If Eli hadn't been instrumental in the Giants' final scoring drive, the MVP should have been shared by the Giants' D line.

the absolute best thing about the Giants win is not that the hated Pats lost but that Tiki Blabber was not on the field and will never get a ring. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. See you in the booth next year loser!

If the Manning's did adopt Kravitz it would be obvious...the "family" Manning lads are all tall strapping jock types, while Kravitz is a short rumpled little dwarf with a bad attitude.

Sure would be a funny Christmas card photo....all the relatives would be askin' "who's the midget?"

You are right bob you have a perfect record as far as failed predictions.
And you calling tondy dungy a hypocrite is one of your biggest blunders in the history of your failed journalistic career.
The star pays you to make outrageous statements to draw the ire of readers because your articles have no substance.
Your feeble attempt in this article to slighly mention your failed predictions, is hollow
Is the star finally putting some fire on your heels and expecting more from you ?

And if the Colts would have won it would have been the best decision since sliced bread.

One wonders if Dungy and Polian will ever understand that the way to win with D-lines is BOTH big and fast. The Pats offensive line was smaller...and got its [edited for PG-rating] handed to it. One also wonders if the Colts going 0-4 lifetime on bye weeks will sink into their minds any day soon.

Keep the ball rolling...or stop; literally.

I am a stern beleiver tha the way to best way to beat New England is exactly the same way to beat the COLTS. Have the type of great defense that they are not seeing on a day to day basis in practice. Example, the Colts, on "D" are a basic 4-3, Cover 2 type "D", that when on offense exploits any other team with a simular defensive scheem. The Giants "D" proved to be the perfect enemy for a high powered Pats offense because the Giants "D" is remarkablely simular to what the Colts, Phily, and Ravens offer in a defensive package. It was jus a matter of time before the law of averages caught up with those hated Patrios. I truly believe that a healthy Colts defense, with our very own potinent offense would whip the Pats any day of the weak, and twice on Sundays. All I have left to say is "Wait'll next year baby" !!

I couldn't agree more!! It's better than a Hollywood movie. Nothing went the way "the experts" had thought it would and that's the beauty of it.

I don't know. I didn't think the rest was what hurt the Colts against the Chargers.
Like many I was against Dungy resting the players this year as well. But when I saw Titan after Titan being helped off that field I felt a little differently.

Oh, Bob, come on, you don't think a great family wants any part of you. You have the nerve to down them all season, their real family,and the Indy Colts, and you now think you deserve to be a part of the Manning family. You might make it up in New England, you play just like they do, dirty. The Colts don't even want you, but have to put up with you.
oh yea

It might not be the best thing, but it makes me even happier for Eli and the Giants. Tiki has done nothing but trash the Giants, not only this year, but even last year when he announced his retirement mid-season.

Each and every Colts fan might not have been a Giants fan before Sunday's win, but I think we've all been Manning fans for awhile. See you next year Tom Terrific!! GO HORSE!!

Yeah, you never would have known how to deal with all that jealousy. They may have lost the SB, but at least they made it...again. The Colt's have been there what, twice ever? WOW! What a dynasty! NOT!

Go Anyone but the Colt's !!!

There are a few people in Wisconsin who hate the Packers. That makes as much sense as you hating the Colts. Why do you even care? Are you a Bengals fan? No reason to hate the Colts. A Bears fan? Still no reason to hate the Colts. A Browns fan? REALLY no reason to hate the Colts. Or do you just hate the NFL? If so, then just ignore it.

Ben, You have changed your screen name.....didn't we all see you posts as the Pats Fan in Indiana or something like that....or is it a coincidence that both of you just happen to be listed as Franklin.

I guess I would be ashamed to use the Pats Fan label anymore as well...based on their terrible performance...further, we all knew they were poor winners but now you get to illustrate that Pats Fans are really poor losers as well.
