    Can you just fathom the ratings if and when we meet the Colts again this year, in either a divisional playoff, or in the AFC Championship. Not only will it be THE most watched football game, possibly in history, but it may be in the top 3 of most watched television EVENTS in history. I mean, its all set up for that, especially after we knock New Orleans from the rank of undefeateds.

    Talk about drama. Its kind of the Patriots/Giants regular season vs. playoff games in reverse, where this year we're the Giants of '07, and the Colts are the Patriots of '07. We know how that one ended.

    Think about it. Is it fate? Will we arrive in Indy wearing black? Too, too many parallels to ignore.

    If it is a Pats/Colts AFCCG, it will be bigger than the Super Bowl.

    I'm with you. That's what I'm talking about, and CBS will absolutely love it.

    I can imagine the pregame hype, and the pregame promos on CBS before the game, and the intro.

    Forget about that for now though. Time to smoke the Jest.

    No question.

    Pats/Colts AFCCC 2007- 28.1 share
    Bears/Colts SB 2007-32.1 share (highest-rated SB ever at the time)

    the thing is we might not play them in the AFCCG, it could be in the divisional if we end up as the 4th seed. We would have to overtake denver and cincy whom we are currently behind in the seedings.

    I bet we end up #2. I think Cinci loses in Minnesota and San Diego ending up 12 - 4 with the #4 seed.

    WE win out for it to be possible, but the other games for Cinci SHOULD be cake.

    I think Denver loses in San Diego this week, maybe even the Giants the week after, and I really think they get schooled by Indy in Indy.

    I think SD ends up 12-4 with the #3 seed having edged Cinci.

    Heard it here first! :rolleyes:

    This is getting to be Red Sox/Yankees type hype now...the networks are going to be all over this when we play them in the playoffs.

    I'm not insinuating the networks control which teams make the playoffs, and who plays who, but there is an inevitability about a rematch that is undeniable.

    Even if we win the division with the #4 seed, as long as one of the other wild card team takes care of #3 it isn't the Colts until the AFCCG(assuming they lock up the #1 seed). BUT, I really need to just think about the Jest.

    I am on duty, and am alone with my thoughts! :snob:

    Here's a question, can you imagine if the Pats travel to Indy for the AFCCG and lose again?

    Beating the Colts is never a guarantee, especially in Indy.
