    I'm *almost* feeling sorry for the players and fans, but then I think about Irsay and Polian and I get over that feeling.

    If the shoe was on the other foot, Dolts fans would not be worrying about us.

    Most Indy fans are slightly annoying at worst. But I hope and pray the Polians (jr and sr) get all the grief that comes from fielding that grossly overpaid Pop Warner team and gets the boot in an end of the season housecleaning. The league would be much better off without Bill Polian having any input on anything league related.

    Overall I am not reveling in their misery but I don't really feel sorry for them either. Jeff Saturday seems to be a class act as well as a very good football player, so if there's anyone in there organization I feel bad for it would be him.

    Obviously there is no sympathy for Bill Polian for a long list of reasons.

    Recalling that this was a fan base who en masse booed a young Punt-Pass-Kick contestant because she was wearing a Patriots uniform, I can certainly understand how any Pats fan might take some satisfaction in last night's humiliating defeat and the complete nosedive the Colts are taking this season.

    You know who I feel sorry for?

    The Dolphins Season Ticket Holders

    Pay tons of money for a yearly ticket and your team goes 1-12 in its last 13 Home Games......its like the old Detroit Lions moved to South Beach

    It's been a long time since any thread made me laugh so hard.

    Feel sorry for the Colts? For smug know-it-all Bill Polian?

    Ten straight winless seasons and I might feel sorry for the London Colts, but not until then.

    Screw them all. If Brady went down and the Pats were winless, Colts fans and fans all over the league would be jumping up and down for joy speaking about karma and how Belichick is only good because of Brady. Why would I feel sympathy for these people because they are the ones with the bad luck.

    The only person I feel bad for is Manning only because I don't wish serious injuries on anyone. If this is the end of his career, then I am sorry it ended this way.

    I definitely don't feel sorry for the Colts organization. They got what they wanted, which is a team built around one player. When that player became unavailable, they fell apart. They have no one but themselves to blame for their current record.

    No Jersey Selected

    The only two things I'm sorry about:
    - St. Dungy isn't along for the descent.
    - Too much of this will be attributed to the absence of #18 (great as he is).

    Let me guess. Manning is so good that he prevents that defense from suffering 62 points. I know it would be different if he was playing, but they have the worst defense in football, they would still lose by a double digit score.q

    F the Colts.

    No reason to. Until this season they've been very fortunate with Manning not getting injured. He played over a decade without a major injury and he's the one they relied on. They're the ones that chose to neglect the backup QB position and focus on other areas which gave them success until now when it bit them in the ***.

    Some of our best games came against the Colts. I respect them as a team, and they don't deserve a humiliating defeat like that consider how much they have brought to the game. In some ways, the challenges they posed over the years to the Pats made the Pats a better team. And, they were never the arrogant obnoxious jerks that the Jets are today.

    Not even in the slightest. Aside from team pride, what's *really* at stake with the Colts going down the tubes? Who genuinely suffers?

    Sports is one of those things in which schadenfreude ultimately doesn't matter. "Ha ha! Your team sucks!" is a lot different than "Ha ha! You lost your job and have no way to support your family!"

    And since I live vicariously through the Pats (as do most on this board), this schadenfreude tastes particularly delicious!

    Regards,
    Chris

    Maybe all this losing will help Polian's grammatical skills and he will learn how to pronounce PATRIOTS correctly. He's a turd.

    What I want to know is what Peyton Manning's injury has to do with the talent of Dwight Freeney,Robert Mathis and Gary Brackett?? :confused:

    I haven't watched much of the Colts so far (who would?) but what has happened to this trio of Pro Bowlers?.....Have they just lost heart and given up hope since thier leader can no longer outscore the opposition's offense?

    How can these 3 guys be such a force just months ago,and now such a pathetic bunch?

    No. I hope they lose next week 100 to 0. The Irsays are bums. No matter how bad they lose they will never feel as bad as the true Baltimore Colts fans who were left without a team or a history in 1983. Hate them. Always will.

    Bill Polian and Rex Ryan are at equal levels on the arrogance meter. They are both at "11".

    [​IMG]

    I remember the day the Colts were awarded the Super Bowl. Their players, fans, and BIll Polian himself were dealing with the question of what it would be like to win a Super Bowl on their own field. They weren't exactly ho-humming their way around it, their arrogance made it seem to be a birthright.
