    The ESPN commercial where a fully dressed Adam in Colts uniform without the helmet walks through the metal detector and the buzzer goes off and he removes his ring and watch and then the buzzer goes off again and he pulls out the SB ring from 2003 from digging on the bottom of his pouch and says,"I almost forgot about this one from 2003"

    Does it not seem like a dig to you against NE? or am I overreacting to the commercial?.

    Your overreacting, IMHO.

    nah, you are overreacting, I think. I thought it was kinda humorous myself. My wife got a chuckle out of it.

    I'm sure the marketing department is more concerned with slighting the Patriots than actually marketing their product. :bricks:

    Overreacting, I think I've seen that commercial before the season started.

    I take it as a dig against the Colts. He's got 3:1. Yeah, overreaction big time!

    you're overreacting. he actually removes 3 different rings through the course of the ad. him forgetting the 2003 one is part of the joke - he has so many. But since he took 2 off prior to that, he had already taken off a NE ring without any such comment. it's just a joke.

    and you're leaving out the best part - Jim Kelly is the guy waiting behind him.

    The best part is Jim Kelly waiting in line behind him as he continues to pull out SB rings.

    The best part of that commercial is that it proves Adam has been hitting the donut shop regularly in Indianapolis.

    Little slow, eh? Jim Kelly was right behind him. I thought it was the funniest commercial I've seen in a long time.

    Joke spelled out: Famous all-pro QB who started 4 Super Bowls but lost has to wait in line while a kicker with 4 rings gets held up at the metal detector. Brilliant.

    I tought this was going to be about the NFL.com commercial where Vinatieri kicks the product to the Colts fan all the way in Indy. I was laughing about how in reality it probably would have ended up in Philly since he's missing so many FG lately. :)

    And if Kelly had had AV, he might have at least one of those rings.....

    Don't forget, all-pro QB is wearing the ugly mustard colored Hall of Fame blazer ;)

    check the commercial out for yourself. i think you're definitely overreacting. jim kelly has talked about how they cut out the best part, where he walks through the metal detector eagerly expecting it to go off, but nothing happens, and the security guard says "keep moving! keep moving!" pretty funny stuff.

    I liked the commercial. I didn't realize that was Jim Kelly behind him.

    Great commercial!! One of the best SportsCenter commercials in a long time. Having Jim Kelly waiting behind him was classic. The "Oops... forgot about the 2003 ring" is part of the joke. Kelly never won a ring and it's probably inconceivable to him that someone would actually forget about one.
