Go Colts! It was an ugly win, but it still counts as a W. At the end of the season, that is what counts. There's no credit for style points. Loving our Colts with a super coach, Coach Dungy and all of his fine staff.

Wake up idiot! The Dolts dont even register on the Patriots radar screen.
Not on your radar screen? Then why are you posting on our site? Your so about us you have to check our postings every day. Your worried we will get healthy by playoff time and rain on your parade. Keep up the talk, last time I checked you weren't on the roster. We'll see you in Jan.

A WIN is a WIN! But it really looks like: Mr. Reliable Dallas Clark is shell shocked, Moorehead will never be a TOP quality reciever, and C. Thorpe STILL needs time! For what its worth...good idea with using Addai & Keith at the same time! One thing for sure, all these injuries has sure exposed our weak areas.

Wow. Never thought I would say this but the Colts defense is now so much better than the offense that it hurts to watch. I know the team is depleted by key injuries, but I find myself enjoying watching the defense and I close my eyes whenever the offense is on the field.

This season is already lost to injuries but who would have thought -- Brett Favre looks 24 while Peyton Manning looks 45?

Can somebody tell me when Dallas Clark suffered his concussion? Someone told me it was in the Patriots game, but I watched that game and saw nothing. Anybody know?

Colts Win!
Keep up the great work Sanders! Your team will need you all season long...and then some.
All you other players watch Sanders, he's doing it right!

Nothing matters until playoff time. We will be there and we know we can win it all. New England knows the Colts are the only team that can beat them, the only team they're afraid of. Whether they admit it or not.
If you're so worried about the Colts right now or think you can rip them for how they've played lately, you really don't understand anything. The Super Bowl isn't won in November. This team will be fine. We can win in Foxboro, no doubt about it.
You almost have it. Indy still have a couple of tough ones left and they have the inside track to the #2 seed, but they don't have it nailed down just yet. It's going to be awfully tough for this team if they have to play an extra game.

So, these games do matter. Right now it doesn't matter _how_ they're winning, just that they escape with the W. And that's what they've done. Still, I think if they're going to make a serious run at a repeat they really need to start getting it together real soon. A blowout here or there would be good, going down to the wire every week just saps a little bit more out of a team, any team.

I'm not sure the Colts are the _only_ team that can stay on the field with NE. Looks to me like there are a couple of others in both Conferences who can bring it, they're just not doing it as consistently.

Just a brief philosophical question -- what happens to you when the Pats start to lose?
According to NBC's Chris Collinsworth the Patriots will never lose again, ever. So I guess that might not be a big problem.
Will we see your kind posts continuing on the Indy Star? As with any sports team, I'd encourage you to provide some commentary with your posts, not just some jibberish sprinkled with a disdain for our Colts.
Some gibberish? Clearly you saw the name and city and didn't bother read my post. That's not very Christian of you Alan.
We like our Colts. If they win, that's great. If they lose, they are still a class organization.
I might agree with that, but don't believe, for a second that the Colts are more 'classy' because it's clear they want to bend the rules to the breaking point too.
I happen to like Coach Dungy.
Funny thing? I have great respect for Coach Dungy. I enjoy listening to him speak and I hear he's an excellent author. But if you think he wouldn't push the rules to gain a competitive advantage, you're dead wrong.
I'd encourage you to read his book -- it could save your life. <quoted text>
I've already been saved, but thanks for the offer. I'd encourage every Indy fan to read "The Education of a Coach" by David Halberstam. You will gain great insight on one of the best NFL coaches of all time.

Ok Bob, say what you will, but I don't buy it. No one coming to Foxboro concerns the Pats, except the one team that can beat them - the Colts.

You know it and I know it. Whether you will admit it is a different story.

By the way, as a Colts fan, I know this much - the regular season and all the records don't mean anything. Only the playoffs matter. Enjoy the ride while it lasts, because it may be the best part of your season. Don't get too cocky big boy.

What a sorry game. A rookie QB playing his first game outperforms Mr Manning. The DOLTS have big issues on offense. The passing game has been weak all season and now the running game is gone. The DOLTS will be lucky to make the playoffs. They are looking at 4 losses in the next 6 games and maybe more. Jacksonville will teat thme up, along with losses to Tenn/Houston/Baltimore.
Defense is their only hope. Maybe it's time to start Sorgi
Put the Philly Cheese Steak down.....you are not getting blood flow to your head.

It's ok to be a football fanatic, but being a DUMB one is not good.

Running game gone? Losing to Baltimore and Houston?

No other word except IDIOT.

Hey Slim, you make good points, I'll give you that. But keep in mind how Indy won it all last year, they didn't have a bye then either. Sometimes we got too caught up in stuff like that. One could argue some teams are better off not having a bye... my point is, I know not to worry/panic about things right now. Nothing matters until playoff time. Honestly, I would say this even if the Colts had beaten the Pats and were undefeated. It just doesn't matter. Just get there.

I'm glad the Colts got the W! And, I wouldn't trade Manning for any quarterback in the NFL. He's still the man and the smartest player in the league. However, I would like to see the coaching staff concentrate more on touchdowns. Obviously, Vinitieri is proving to be unreliable. I don't think it's too wise to rely on him kicking a winning field goal. Yes, he made it. But he had missed four in a row up until that point. What if he had missed this one too? What would people be saying about Dungy? I think the Colts would do better to pass a little more. And even pass on fourth down when they're deep in the opposition's territory. Getting back to their touchdown form will get the score up and give them their confidence back. That's what they were doing when they looked so good in 2005. Can you imagine Belichick going for those wimpy field goals? I still think the Colts are the league's best team. Despite the last few games, remember, without some key stars, they made the Patriots look ridiculous for most of the game. Go Colts!

Hey Indy the Colts escaped with their playoff lives yesterday, huh? How did it feel seeing the Kicker Who Sold His Soul stroll out for another must-make kick at the end? Make you a little nervous? No doubt automatic Adam would make a game-winner for ya, right? No reason for concern, right? While the Dolts managed a last second kick for the win, the rest of the country was looking on your organization with fresh eyes. Yesterday was another "Sad Day For The NFL". Imagine how ashamed a Dungy-coached team should feel for not disclosing an obvious injury to Vinatieri's plant foot? You have to expect honorable men like Dungy and Polian to resign in disgrace by 6PM today, right? Wrong. Because a competitive advantage like ignoring the NFL rules on injury disclosure is fine as long as you don't videotape it, right? It just goes to show that, this very second, your Colts are doing things you though only cheaters did. Not disclosing an injury on the official NFL injury report is a blatent NFL Rules Violation. I'm sure Roger Goddell will come down hard on your Colts by late this afternoon. I'm sure he'll order a full and complete investigation as the groundswell of NFL fan hatred builds on web sites and blogs from Bangor, Maine to Bangor, Washington. I fully expect your coach to lose a half-million dollars and your GM to lose his 1st round pick before this whole nightmare is forgotten. That would be a measured and appropriate response considering the renewed importance the league has placed on the accuracy of the injury report this year. Ignoring the commisioner's memo reminding all teams that all injuries must appear on the official report on Wednesday by 4PM just shows the arrogance of the entire Colt organization, doesn't it? Classless cheaters and I think that must come from their head coach.
Yawn. Another Pats fan with incoherent thoughts and arguments. You fools are a bore.

Colts fans...RELAX!
While we might be dinged up and struggling, it will be OK. Anyone remeber last season, losing to J-ville and the Texans? It was over. We were cooked and who even considered the SuperBowl a possibility? How did that turn out?
As far as this season goes, I can admit the obvious...the Patriots are the class of the NFL. Accept it. Now the good news, we still play the games. Anything can happen (and does). Injuries are a part of this game. Dealing with it determines were you finish.
Pats Fan...RELAX. Save all that pent-up hatred for when we play again. Enjoy Thanksgiving!

Colts fans who are lucky enough to attend a game, STOP booing your own players!!!!!! Adam has done so much for us, and you sit there and boo him. Very UNclassy thing to do, don't make us look like patriot fans. The commentators mentioned that his plant leg is in alot of pain, but he doesn't use it as an excuse. My question is if he is hurt, doesn't he have a back up?

BlueWave, you really are an idiot. Ya the Pats are really scared of the 4th best team in the NFL. You make it, your coming to Foxboro!! We have basically owned you for the whole Manning era, except for a 1 year blimp on the screen. Your one year wonders, a team and fans full of excuses for poor play, a team with no depth, and a QB on the beginning of a downward slide. You are the losing Colts. I never thought I'd say this, but I hate the Colts and their fans worse than I hate the Yankees. At least I have respect for the Yankees and their fans!!! Your going down baby!!! LOL
