    Ok, the Pats/Colts rilvary has gone on for a while now and there are a lot of memorable moments. I was trying to think which one is my favorite. The obvious choice is probably that 4th and 1 goalline stand where Washington and McGinest stuffed Edgerrine James.

    But I have to agree with Jeffri Chadiha (wow, I never ever thought I would ever write that one). I think Bruschi stripping Domanick Rhodes in the playoffs in 2004 was my favorite. It just so defined the Patriots of 2003 and 2004. We just outmuscled out opponents.

    Other moments that I can think of are McGinest's sack of Manning to put Mr. "Money" Vanderjagt out of field goal range and any one of Law's INTs in the 2003 AFCCG.

    20-3 b/c I was there. Only game I've been since they've been playing in the Razor.

    Dillon on the 3 games to glory DVD during the 2004 playoffs saying something like "they don't want to deal with us no more..." as the PATs were grinding out the tough win in the snow.

    Brady completing that 3rd and long to Faulk from deep in our end zone in that same game while is was still close.

    How bout one of Troy Brown's pass break-ups in the 20-3 game...They had this big offense and we shut them down with Troy Brown at nickel-back...It symbolized what at that time was a one-sided rivalry.

    Why was the Indy fan post deleted? Let 'em have their fun. I'm pretty confident that we'll have ours soon enough.

    I'd have to go with the goal line stand.

    But I don't ever tire of seeing the befuddled look, arms in the air and head-shaking of Manning as he threw pick after pick, incomplete pass after incomplete pass. With snowflakes falling gently upon his helmet.

    20-3 playoff game. Their number one offense against our beat up defense. IIRC, the Colts were actually favored in that game at Gillete?

    20-3. The seminal moment of our entire dynasty, in my opinion. And Bruschi in the interview afterwards, saying something to the effect of: "Go ahead and change the rules! We just play. And win."

    The 03 AFCCG was great with Law getting 3 picks. Plus it was a snow game. Favorite RS game was 07. Came back from down 10 in the 4th to win the game.

    Nothing will ever come close IMO to the Goal Line Stand in 2003

    This moment was an early indicator as to which team would eventually be the decades best.

    McGinest was so much a HUGE reason why we dominated the Colts those years,he was unstoppable from the edge against Manning.

    I don't know how long it will take for this team to get another OLB like Mac....it might be another 10 years the way this team whiffs on drafting OLBs,not Belichick's best attribute.

    So many great moments already mentioned, the goal line stand, the AFCCG, but I'll add this to the pantheon:

    [​IMG]

    8-0 Pats favorites over the 7-0 Colts in their home, unprecedented matchup. Moss saved the game with a circus catch from our own territory. It still looks crazy every time I watch the replay. Moss was shut out of most of that game and delivered at a crucial moment.
