Why are so many people saying the Colts loss was "stunning"? The Chargers have had a great deal of success in the RCA Dome over the years. If you don't learn from history, you are bound to repeat it.

Maybe if Peyton wasn't so busy this season making commercials and studied his playbook a little more, the Colts wouldn't have become the Dolts and been beaten by the Bolts!

Bye weeks seem to have a negative effect on the Colts in the playoffs. I really didn't want to see them get a bye week fearing that it would be a momentum killer with too much time off. But, they needed it for the injured players to heal.
Oh, well. After this years Super Bowl it starts all over again. And I'm excited about this team and their chances to win it all next season.

Go Packers!!!!! Colts fans, stay on the wagon, the Colts had a good season, don't jump off like some fair weather fans will, I've been a Packers fan for 41 years and have ridden the highs and the lows but never have given up hope. One thing to remember is that you cannot expect your favorite team to win you can only hope that they do.

I really like that oreo licking commercial Manning did with his brother. I wonder when he had time to do it ?

I mean we all know it wasnt taped before July or anything, so when does Manning have time to take off from Football to do so many commercials ?

He does more himself than any 100 other football players put together.

This must be why he chokes year after year - he does commercials. His greed and his love of money literally ruins it all for the other Colt players and all the Colts fans

the guy is disgusting

I guess conceiving illegitimate kids during the off season is a better plan.

Go Chargers!!!

Typical chowderhead moronic ramblings. So you know all about when his commercials are taped, huh? You probably also know what time Brady takes a dump each day and you wink at the Brady poster you have hanging above your bed. Idiot.

I think, as Colts fans, we have been spoiled to expect victory.
When your team has won 12 or more games for 5 straight years (an NFL record) you start to expect wins rather than appreciate them.
Yes, the Colts played bad Sunday. That cannot be disputed, but there was another team in the dome on Sunday, and that had a lot to do with it.
Both teams showed less than stellar defensive performances, and both teams sustained a lot of physical abuse.
I hate to say it, but this game was a meat tenderizer for the Patriots.

Ya know,
There were two extremes in bye week preparation.

Manning spent his bye week studying film in preparation for the Playoffs.

Romo spent his bye week in Mexico with Jessica Simpson.

In the end, there really wasn't much of a difference, was there?

All the best!!!! and thank you to #18 for that wonderful label of choker in big games!!!! The Irsay curse lives on!!!!
Wow, still so bitter after all these years, huh? So, do you root for the Browns, er... Ravens? Nice team, by the way. I guess after the Colts stepped on them on their way to the Super Bowl last year, the Ravens decided not to play this year. Getting beat by the winless Dolphins had to be the pinnacle for you this year. With that in mind, I guess I do understand your bitterness. At least Colt fans have next year to look forward to with another contending team. Ravens? Not so much.

Well, if the defense were actually ready to play a playoff game and the defensive coaches would actually make some game adjustments, they would still be playing.

..despite the not-that-great performance by the Colts, this game could have been won by the Colts had Dungy managed better at the end...go for the 3, then stop the Chargers and go for another three...
PS...is there ANY way for the sorry Colts fans to suggest now that Manning is better that Brady..for all their stupid comments, wouldn't they rather have Brady and Belichek than Manning and Dungy?...
..and PLEASE..spare us the tired, whiny cameragate comments in your responses...

hey, chowd. go get your best five and best eleven. i'll get mine here in indy and we will mop whatever field, court, pitch or whatever you choose to play on with your non-athletic backsides. we can settle this like men and then you fine chowds can crawl, limp, or cheat by riding your rascals back to your holes. be thankful for your professional teams because the rest of your sports experience is a black hole, brother (unless you like lacrosse or hockey; do they still play those?). quit hating on indy, and buck foston!

Hmmm..... One Super Bowl win without the Irsay family and one big choke against the Jets in Super Bowl III.

One Super Bowl win with the Irsay family and about as many playoff appearances in the past decade as the Colts did during their entire time in Baltimore.

Not a heck of a lot of difference, if you ask me. But Johnny U. is the greatest ever. I will agree with that.

again all you have to look forward to is another year and in a different place to see#18 choke again a choker will always be a choker!!!! The Ravens will be fine thank you YES we lost the Pony's last year but in the end you are stuck with Jim Irsay!!!look at the colts history books under the Irsay family and before them!!! That says everything!!!! All we want is the NFL AND the Irsay's to correctly display the history that's and until that happens it will not be let go and for the record go to www.coltsheritage.com and maybe you will understand!!!!
You are sad and pathetic. Maybe you should try to channel the energy you spend on all that hatred into something more constructive -- like an education maybe. It's been over 20 years for cryin out loud -- lighten up! Oh yea -- I keep forgetting, you have to root for the Ravens and your lousy coach with no quarterback and an old defense. Be bitter -- be very bitter.
