I am not trying to pile on to the "running up the score" debate. But this is something I researched out of curiosity and thought it might interest some of you. I figured since the Colts are a team that has a relatively long history of scoring a lot of points I would look to see how many times Manning was pulled during a blowout and at what point. I also threw in some tidbits on throwing the ball late, kicking FG's etc.. Indy when they score 38 or more and up but 17+ in the past 3 seasons is my premise: 2006 Hou (43-24) Up 30 - 10 still throwing and Rhodes runs it in for a TD. Later up 37-17 Manning throws a 30 yard TD pass to make it 43-17 with 2:42 left. Sorgi never sees the field. Phi (45-21) Manning takes the knee to end the game. Manning threw a TD pass with 3:38 to make it 38-21. Defense returns a TD final score 45-21. Sorgi never sees the field. 2005 StL (45-28) Manning still in the game up 38-20 with 9 minutes left. Throws a TD to go up 45-20 with 8 minutes left. Sorgi enters the game with 3:23 left Hou (38-20) Manning still in the game with 7:29 up 38-20. Manning comes out in shotgun. They run out the clock with a long drive that included going for it on 4th and 1 with 1:17 left. Sorgi never sees the field. NE (40-21) with 5:53 left the Colts go for the two point conversion, all class! NE goes three and out. Manning comes in with 5 minutes left. Sorgi never steps on the field. Doug Flutie comes in for Brady. 2004 Hou (49-14) Up 42-7 with 12 minutes left in the 4th quarter Manning comes out with 4 straight passes (gets picked off). Up 42-14 with 7:47 left Manning comes out for another series. Doesn't get another chance to come back in after this series. Chi (41-10) with 12 minutes left Manning comes out and drives down to the 18 yard line of Chicago and goes for it on 4th and 1 with 4:52 left. Sorgi cleans up with 1:37 left. Det (41-9) Sorgi enters the game with 1:15 left in the 3rd quarter. Ten (51-24) Sorgi comes in with 9:53 left. Up 48-21 with just under 3 minutes Sorgi passes on 3rd and 11 from the Ten 19(incomplete). The Colts kick the FG with 2:43 left to make it 51-24. Only twice has Sorgi come in with more than 8 minutes left in a blowout and that was in 2004. And in blowouts 17+ that didn't meet my criteria, he only came in twice, between 2004 and 2006, both times with less than 4 minutes to play. And so far in 2007 he has come in once (Sunday). This year alone Brady has been pulled three times with 8 or more minutes left in the game.
