Just looked at a Jacksonville newspaper web site. The folks in Florida area already calling next Monday's game as the biggest game for the Jags in years. Again, Colts will take a team's best shot. Go Blue! After last year's debacle in Jacksonville we have something to prove. Go Blue!

Oh no! How can we possibly beat New England? Probably the greatest team of all time! I know cause Chris Collingsworth[less] told me last night. Collingsworth and Oberman, what a team. Reminds me of the movie Dumb and Dumber except it is Worse and Worser. We're 5-0 and playing great and you would think we didn't exist. You know though, deep down I love it. There's no chance for the Colts to get on some superior high horse. I truly believe depending on cheating and Moss will come back to haunt the Pats. Go Colts!

Go Colts. Beat the classless patriots who ran for a touchdown on 4th down yesterday when they were about to win with only seconds on the clock. Why did they have to rub it in? Did anyone think they had a lot of help from the refs yesterday. WOW, never seen so many calls against one team. Oh...so now the patriots are using bribery to win.

Yea that Patriots td at the end of the game last night was a very low thing to do. But not surprising. Just another Bellicheat thing to do. Brady is probably playing really well because he wants a bigger contract. I imagine he's got a lot of child support payments to pay.

I like Keith Oberman a lot but why he is in the booth for a football game? The Colts have a tough schedule but they're up to it as much as anyone and are getting better each week. Go Colts!

You are all morons...whiney morons at that. The Pats gave Eckel the ball because he's a Navy alum and it was in honor on Belichicks father who passed away one year ago and was also a Navy alum. There isnt a less intelligent and whinier fan base in all of sports than Colts fans. Obsessing about what a couple of bozos like Collingsworth and Oberman have to say. Who cares? Give the Pats their due and stop crying. Nov 4th is going to be great...even with the cheating Colts pumping fake noise and cranking up the heat in the dome.

We haven't whined when we kicked the Pats butts the last three years but, then again, you weren't the greatest team of all time then.

I don't know about the Moss and cheating comments, but you're right on on the rest.
Did anyone else see how far off many of Brady's passes were when they were thrown outside the numbers? Over the middle he was dead on, but to the sides he had his problems. In the dome with our speed those are interceptions.
The Colts really answered some questions for me in the Tampa game. Our defense really looked like I was hoping it would the first four games.(No I didn't get to see the Saints game.)
Offensively we just look better and better.
The bigger test right now for the Colts will be pulling out a win this next Monday in Jacksonville. They're an excellent team that will come out with such an emotional edge. The key will be taking their emotion and turning it against them so excitement equals mistakes and overplays (i.e. our playoff game in Baltimore). Manning is a pro at that.

I am a Colt's fan, but I have to admit that Brady and the Patriots look like a team on a mission. I was not convinced about New england because of the quality of their opposition, but last night, crushing Dallas in Dalas (where the Colts lost last year) made me think they are definitly for real. I don't care who you play in the NFL, it is hard to beat 6 opponets by an average spread of 23 points like New England is doing now. Point differences like that only happen in college football. They not only want to beat teams but destroy the opposition. A team like that is not one you want to bet against. The Patriots remind me a lot of the Montana/Young San Francisco teams who had the point spread covered in the first ten minutes of the game and coasted to the end. Call the Patriots cheaters, classless or whatever, but you can't say they are not the team to beat now. I think New England is chomping at the bits for the game in Indy and wanting the revenge factor from last year and this year they have a much better team. My prediction is New England with a double digit win in Indy. Indy will not be able to count on scoring another 32 second half points like last year. I hope I am wrong, but I don't think so

i initially thought dallas was gonna be the game to measure the pats by but did anyone watch last weeks game at buffalo? romo is another grossman from chicago! sometimes he plays spectacular and sometimes he is pathetic. they needed a last second fg to beat lowly buffalo that sports a rookie qb. and i saw a lot of weakness in the 1st half on offense and defense for new england. they cant play like that in our house against manning and company so i was encouraged by that game. peyton can and will score big on the pats and im sure they will score on our defense but we do have big time play makers on defense for once.....GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!

Brady's numbers yesterday:

31/46
388yards
5 TDs
0 ints

...in Texas Stadium against the 5-0 Cowboys.

And once again there are Colts fans yapping that he "sucked" and talking about a couple of balls he overthrew.

Once again, showing why you truly are the DUMBEST collection of sports fans anywhere.

Are the Patriots better than Indy? I'm not sure, Nov 4th will give us an idea and obviously the season will play it out for sure, but you EMBARRASS yourselves with your idiotic, crybaby, homer comments.

PS-I cant wait until Kravitz comes out with another highly sarcastic article "praising" the Pats when he's clearly bashing him and see half of the moron Colts fans fly off the handle posting hate mail to Kravitz because they're too stupid to understand point of the story. That was classic and all too telling.

Pardon me... but the NFL investigation proved that the Colts violated no rules. On the other hand, the NFL investigation into your teams misdoings proved that they were, in fact, cheating. I wouldn't go around pointing fingers when your team is actually the one guilty of cheating.

whining? as far as i'm concerned, blaming losses on things like having the FLU (especially after another "class act" such as bruschi announces that he cant wait "to hear the colts' excuses when they lose") is way more an act of whining than us being annoyed that new england has once again been crowned world championships not even halfway through the season...

and please, do you REALLY want to bring up the issue of whose cheating? you want us to "give the pats their due"??? seems to me the "best team in history" HAS their due. you've gotta learn to take the criticism as well because, trust me, theres plenty of it.

Ah yes, calling Colts fans dumb, thats impressive. I'm sure I could go onto New England's chat forum and find 100 things I disagree with too and I could therefore call them dumb.

But I have better things to do with my day.

Hope calling us dumb makes YOU feel better though! Saying it over and over again sure makes YOU sound smart...

How are we going to win when if Peyton Manning is dead!!! He got hit by a dump truck and lifelined to Methodist remember????????? kidding...

That last TD by the Pats was horseshit... Don't give me this crap about "honoring his dad with a Navy alum. scoring a TD" bull crap. There are MANY other ways to honor him then driving up the score on Dallas. Honor him on your own turf, not someone elses. That is even more classless and proves why NO ONE, except for the people in Boston, like the Patriots. What was Belicheck thinking, "Hey, I have an idea, lets honor my father tonight on another teams turf, by jacking up the score and really try and embarass the Cowboys." That's not how you "honor" someone.. They are the most HATED team in the league and they proved why on Sunday.

And another thing.. When talking about how much "class" New England has, lets not forget Belicheck after the Colts beat the patriots in the AFC Championship. He stormed off the field like a child and wouldn't even shake Mannings hand. He looked like a little kid whose Daddy just took his favorite toy away. That "Daddy" of course is the Colts and we will prove that again in a few weeks as we have over the last 2 seasons.

Don't insult them by calling them by calling them 'whiners' and then spout off that nonsense at the end. Ironic you would infer as someone else as cheaters. Who is the real crybaby and imperceptive one?
