    The 3-4 versus the Cover 2, Brady versus Manning, Dungy versus Belichick, Good versus Evil.

    Enjoy it while it lasts, Sox in the World Series, Brady on fire, Moss catching passes with his mouth... this is so much fun. When the Colts and Patriots play we will get to see two legendary QBs at their absolute peak. It doesn't get any better than this. Memo to other franchises, to build a team you need a system, a GM who can acquire talent for the system, coaching stability, and oh yah, a Hall of Fame QB doesn't hurt either.

    One of the things I really respect about both teams is their belief in their respective systems. The Colts offense puts so much pressure on a defense and executes at a top level and their cover two system is a treat when it is clicking. The Patriots don't lock into any tendencies and have so many weapons they are almost scoring at will. The 3-4 defense puts a premium on stopping the run and making a team one dimensional.

    I really can't wait for the Colts \ Pats game, the X's and O's plus the Jimmy's and Joe's is must watch tv.

    This will definitely be the regular season game of the year.

    Do you think this game will be moved up to the Sunday night slot on TV?

    It won't. I think Peter King discussed this. First off, flex schedule starts in Week 11. Even if the game could be switched, CBS can hold onto one game a week. Pats-Colts would definitely be that game. In addition, (and this is what King was saying) the NFL felt they owed some type of favor to CBS because the Pats-Colts games are always being put on primetime. Considering this game usually pulls the biggest ratings of the year, they felt it was unfair to pull the game. Whatever.

    What do you mean? Manning peaked a couple of years ago. The Colts are actually a better team now.

    This will be one of the most hyped regular season games in any sport, ever. And I'm not being sarcastic or over-dramatic. The hype will be insane.*

    *if both teams are undefeated

    Memo to the NFL. Put either the Pats or the Colts into the NFC so they can play each other in the superbowl. ;)
