    I'll admit that I kinda expected this. All week I had this feeling that it was finally Mannings time, finally the Colts time to get over the hump. So I guess in a way the loss is easier for me to swallow, though the 21-3 lead we lost makes it a lot tougher.

    I am happy for their fans. I haven't been on this board during the week and I don't know how the fans have acted but I'm certain that they don't represent the entire fan base. Down here in Texas I have several friends that are Colts fans. I've seen what they've gone through over the years having so much hope every single season just to see it come crashing down every time. I know what it feels like to be on the losing end but certainly not the same way a Colts fan has. So yeah, no matter how some may act, I'm happy for the fans.

    I'm happy for Peyton, he's heard so much for so long about his "legacy" and now he gets a chance to finally shut everyone up.

    Enjoy it Colts fans, it's a great feeling that we Pats fans have been very fortunate to feel very often this decade. Hopefully we'll feel it again soon.

    Well done, Colts.

    Never felt comfortable all game. Well, maybe for a second, when Watson made the first down up 21-3, but that only lasted for about 2 seconds.

    We were laboring so hard to score and they were scoring so easily that it seemed almost inevitable.

    Blowing a 21-3 lead, I can live with. The big play to me was the 12 men in the huddle to turn a 1st and 10 to a 1st and 15. One first down there meant the difference between the Colts playing for the win and playing for the tie. That was a huge penalty. Second only to the Troy Brown offensive PI, which didn't really look like something you see called that much, but I suppose he did push and it did affect the play.

    Tough one to take. Can't get 'em all I guess. Anyway, well done Colts.

    God, this hurts to say but give credit where it is due. Great game Petyon, great game Colts. Go spank the Bears and keep the SB trophy in the AFC. The Pats played well but the Colts played better. Also, how about the class of Manning to rush his guys to the line to kneel the ball at the end when they were celebrating. Also, did you notice the mutual respect given during the post game handshakes? These guys all know that they've been the two best teams over the past few years. I still hate you Peyton, but good game.

    I think they won the SB today, there is no way the Bears can hang with these guys. Grossman is horrible, and the pressure of the SB will make him fold like a deck of cards. Congrats Colts fans, great comeback. You have an awesome team. Enjoy it, maybe you'll win on an Adam Vinatieri FG, lol.

    I gotta say the Colts deserved to win this game. They outplayed the Pats but I gotta say GO BEARS!!!! I still dislike Manning and the Colts immensely.

    Congrats to the colts, to the second best team of the decade, to the second best QB of the decade. When it counted the colt disrespected colt defense stopped three teams in a row, and stopped us in the last key drive. I want to see the bears loss by the same score as we did in 1986.

    With all due respect, to be the 2nd best team in the NFL in any given year is a serious accomplishment.

    I agree. For all the time and devotion he puts into the game, it's a relief (almost) to see him win a big one. The Colts should be favored to beat da Bears.

    Congrats to the Colts on a hard fought game. They earned the win. The Pats helped it by doing nothing on defense in the second half, but that's how the cookie crumbles sometimes.

    Classy post. Congrats to you, as well, on a great season. Peyton talked extensively about how classy he felt the pats were and, I agree. That is a classy organization from top to bottom.

    I'm sure the pats will be back and better than ever next year so, see you then.:)

    Make no mistake - If Peyton wins the SB, he will be crowned the best QB of this era - not Tom Brady. That is one "2nd" I will not agree with, at least until PM has 3 rings.
    Thats what will bother me even more than the way we blew this game.

    But - congrats Colts, you outplayed us in the 2nd half, overcame a large deficit and you persevered.

    RYAN - enjoy it.
