    Imagine with me, dear readers...

    It's the week leading up to the AFC Championship game between the Colts and the heavily favored Patriots. Bob Sanders has been lost for the season and New England demolished their opponents in the divisional round. It's looking bleak for Indy, when Tony Dungy announces that he will come out of retirement to take over as the starting safety. Imagine the headlines!

    Of course he'd get laid out on the first play from scrimmage and the Colts would lose by 3 TD's, but it would still cement Dungy's reputation as a saint among football coaches.

    Saints don't die, they ascend. After he got decked he would ascend right in front of the crowd. As he floated up with angels around him and trumpets trumpeting he could deliver some inspiring speech about playing the game fair, like him, like the ascended master.

    And then we could all shout in unison, "Buh bye, Tony, don't let the door hit you on the ass."

    I'll be glad when Dungy retires after this year. He contemplated doing it last year but now that he's watched his team become a MASH unit he'll think that God is sending him a message.

    I don't think he can even do that even if he tries. And if he tries to Kraft and Belichick better object and have the refs stop him. If he gets away with this I am going to be pissed!

    Stop him, hardly. The refs all report to Pope Polian, they know better them to cross him or it's excommunication and a one way ticket to hell.

    Can we canonize Pope Polian? By that I mean we stick him in a cannon and see how far we can shoot him. :D

    As long as we don't stick a cannon in him. Saint Tony does not approve of that sort of activity, especially if two men are involved.

    you have got to be kidding. Is this a serious thread? Dungy outdoes BB in every facet of the game. I am just curious, why are there so many posts here about the Colts? They are the reigning Super Bowl Champions, which Pats fans seem to hold in such high regard when they are talking about their team? I just dont get it.

    I'll sit back now and wait for the personal attacks and mindless jabs. But I am trying to have a serious discussion here.

    Maybe not that facet called "wins". Tell me who has more wins head-to-head?

    I'm not going to go into the MANY other facets that Belichick outdoes Dungy in, I don't have that much time.

    You have to admit that Tony Dungy outdoes Belichick in the category of INTOLERANCE as well.

    I guess my first reply might have been a tad overstated in some areas. But why do you guys feel the need to trash him? He's done some pretty amazing things in his tenure, including a SB win, and he's a pretty good guy. And he did outdo BB in last years AFCCG. That in itself doesnt over ride the head to head wins, but I think he deserves more respect than you give him.

    Um, did I disrespect him? Oh, wait, I challenged your assertion that Dungy outdoes Belichick in every facet of the game (something even you backed off of) - I must be trashing him then!

    No wonder Indystar has so much trouble with Pats fans - you call Dungy the greatest coach in the world and then when challenged with a few facts you get all defensive and start bathing in your AFC title game win. How 'bout November 4th? How does a coach blow a 10-point lead AT HOME in the last 9 minutes against ANY team? Or how does a coach waste a timeout complaining to the referees?

    No, no, no silly pats fan. This thread by it's title is an attempt to disrespect Dungy. That's my whole point. It seems that more time is spent on this board thrashing other people, defending either your 'rule breaking' or scoring, or complaining about media outlets that aren't fair to your team. My question is why does it have to be that way? If the thread was meant for any other reason, it wouldnt have started with 'Dungy can play'.

    If there was a valid discussion to be had here, lets have it. Dungy lacks the arrogance and complete disdane for authority that BB has, as well as the lack of class and personality. That is what I was referring to as far as outdoing BB. I didnt come here to bash your coach, I can do that anywhere, just cant understand the point here.

    And if Im moving to fast for you, re-read the content of this thread until you and I started debating. It's infantile.

    You can't expect kudos for the Pats winning and then not give it out when another team wins. That's incredibly lame. Show some class and don't make Pats fans look bad by being a sore loser.

    Oh, so who's resorting to "personal attacks" and "mindless jabs" now?

    You said outdoing Belichick in every facet of the GAME -let's see, how much does arrogance, disdain for authority, class and personality has to do with winning football games? Zilch. So you contradicted yourself there, unless you think being "classy" is the key to winning games.

    If you want to argue for Dungy as "Nicest Coach" then you got me but "Best Coach" - you've got a long way to go and unfortunately all signs point to your boy's tenure ending in 2 months.

    Dear CarolinaColtFan:

    1. This is a Pats board.
    2. I don't think 'disdane' (disdain) for authority is a bad thing, personally.
    3. This is a Pats board.
    4. The notion that Dungy has more class and personality than Belichick is your opinion. I disagree. I doubt Bill would pass ANY public comment on another team's business such as 'spygate'. I also find the personality of an irascible, sardonic, driven genius far, far more interesting than that of a bland, born-again beacon of piety.
    5. This is a Pats board.

    Well, it can be said that it has a lot to do with it. As in any profession, there are politcs involved. Players want to play for good coaches. Case in point is Atlanta, players dont like the coach, they wont play for him. Im not saying the players dont like BB, I am saying that arrogance, attitude and lack of respect do play a part.

    And if his tenure does end, it will be on his terms I am certain. And thats fine, we will move on. We've had bad coaches before, and we will again I am sure, but I dont think Dungy falls into that class. If you were talking about Mora, I wouldnt even argue with you.

    Actually, I see no reason why he couldn't. He'd already been through the draft so he's no longer subject to that, he could sign with any team he wanted to. His coaching salary would count as part of the Colts' salary cap, but there's no rule against it. He couldn't do it game-day, but as long as he did it by 4pm the day before it WOULD be legal.

    That's a really good point. Belichick doesn't waste time talking about his own team, let alone others (and when he does it's all praise, all the time). To echo Brady's comments about Schotty "you don't talk about our team". And Brady made Schotty lose his job ;)
