Good comment Bob about sports being the ultimate reality show, how true. I said this a couple weeks ago, but i agree the Colts not playing their best game was a huge mistake. Momentum killer for one, but like i said before, you beat the Titans, its the Browns playing the Chargers, and maybe the Browns win, the COlts wouldnt of played the Chargers at all. If youre charging full price admission to a game be it the 1st or the 16th, you owe to the fans who showed up to give it your all. I still cant believe how disappointed i am in coach Dungy that he didnt even try to win that game at the end.

The NFL commissoner needs to talk to mgt. & Bill B. about their unsportmanship like actions after the super bowl , it just shows you what kind of idot that at the head of the New Eagland team, maybe a fine would be in order, to match his earlier fines. Cheaters do not win.

WAY TO GO BOB RIGHT ON!! POLIAN HAS HAD THE BEST TEAMS IN FOOTBALL 7 years (buffalo & indy) AND HAS ONLY ONE RING BECAUSE THEY SIT PLAYERS DOW THAT CANT GET UP AGAIN WHEN THE LIGHTS COME ON! THERE ARE A LOT MORE PROBLEMS THAN GETTING FREENY BACK WAKE UP!!!!#1. YOU HAVE A PUNTER THAT CAN ONLY POOCH PUNT, NO HANG TIME, LEG IS GONE.#2. A 60% FIELD GOAL KICKER.#3. A OLD WIDE RECIVER WHO WILL NEVER BE TOTALLY BACK 80% BACK IS NOT ENOUGH AS WE SAW IN THE PLAYOFFS.#4. 40 YARDS A GAME RUSHING BY A BACK THAT WAS WORN OUT AND CAN NOT BE AN EVERYDOWN BACK THATS OBVIOUS.#5. THERE HAS TO BE PEOPLE WALKING THE STREETS WHO CAN RUN BACK PUNTS AND KICKOFFS BETTER THAN WE HAVE.#6. SPECIAL TEAM COVERAGE MOST OF THESE PLAYERS ARNT REGULARS SO DONT GIVE ME THAT INJURY CRAP ITS A HEART THING.#7 OFFENCEVE LINE STUNK ALL YEAR, 40 YARDS A GAME RUSHING SHOWED THAT, AND MANNING WAS RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE OR KNOCKED DOWN ALL THE TIME. MAYBE YOU NEED TO BE ADDOPTED!(or tackle some of this mess)
limited space keeps me from getting into salary cap or tight ends who want to be somewhere else. maybe tomarrow all will be well and youll be a manning. but dont count on it.SMELL THE FLOWERS BOB( THATS HORSE (colts) MANURE YOU SMELL!!!
Stop yelling, you dork! Try taking off the caps lock key, you aren't some 15 year old in a chat room, are you? I agree about not resting the starters, and Harrison is getting old, but the rest of your takes SUCK! If you think this team doesn't play with heart you are retarded...Freeney has an injury that ends careers. Marvin obviously had issues with his knee...If you think those wouldn't play through it if they could, you are dead wrong. They didn't get to the NFL and have Hall of Fame careers by not having heart, a-hole. Take you inane ramblings somewhere else!

The NFL needs to investigate all teams because there are accusations made against many and that includes the Colts. So let's have an investigation that includes the Colts and every team and I'll even write a check for 5000.00 to help pay for this.
Finally, The Patriots had a great season and we will probablly never again see a team go 18-1. Yes they lost the Super Bowl but they played their heart out as did the Giants and deserve our thanks not our trash-talking.

If the colts have "nothing to play for" in the last weeks of the season next year and dungy sits the starters they should fire him on the spot. 4 times rested - 4 losses, they won it when they didn't have the 'luxury' to rest.

I'm invisioning a poster. On that poster is Michael Jordan. He is dunking on someone. It's a really awesome poster. Then I'm invisioning that someone in that poster talking. His words..."Hey, at least I was in the poster. I might have been embarrassed, but at least I got some kind of attention."

Face it. The Patriots were posterized, and their fans are now running around saying, "At least we were in the poster." A loss is a loss, no matter how you shape it.

The Patriots did not rest any starters and they lost. Is Kravitz going to write an article from that perspective and do a point/counterpoint series? The point has no validation with the whole of the facts.
Well said. Illuminates Kravitz' numbskullery.
