    I gotta say I think they do. I was impressed with Indy's Defense, they gave us more problems than I thought they would. If they made a few more plays on Offense they would have won this game.

    So I guess were not only Good, but lucky as well.

    They say you can't win em all, but maybe just maybe we can.:rocker:

    he was cleared to play, the Colts chose not to play him...that is not our problem. Sounds like a built in excuse

    Who f*cking cares. Not directed at you but the question whoever asks it. No one gave a crap about our injuries and I don't give a crap about theirs.

    They get to come to Gillette for the playoffs now - barring a total collapse.

    If the Pats didn't have injuries on D in the championship game, if Brady had more quality receivers to throw to then, do the Colts win?

    If the officiating wasn't sucktastic today, do the Pats win by a bigger margin?

    I mean we can play with this all day. Bottom line is the Pats came through, and they will not face a team as good as Indy until....they face Indy again. And it will probably be a home game for the Pats.

    This was a game they absolutely had to have, and they did. Hey, the Pats have gone through their share of injuries plenty of times and most times they have been able to come through anyway. Indy didn't today.

    The Colts didn't care when we fielded a team with starters Banta Cain, Alexander, No Harrison, No Wilson and Caldwell and Troy Brown starting at WR.


    Who cares, Colts fans sure didn't when they beat that Patriots lineup last January.

    I have to say they do, but on the other hand if it weren't for all the bs calls it would have been a blow out imo, the argument will be settled in foxboro in january, all the woulda coulda shouldas can be put to rest then

    Marvin Harrison isn't even their best receiver anymore. Nobody seemed to care last year that both of our starting safeties were out and a couple of defensive guys got hurt during the AFCCG and that several players were playing with the flu. Its all excuses.

    The better team won today.

    If the officiating hadn't been so bad, the Patriots would have won by 20+ points, so I don't see the logic behind asking "what if" after this particular game.

    OK...let's play...suppose the Pats had Sammy Morris today?...suppose they had the A.T. that started the season and not the hobbled shell of his former self?....suppose the Patriots had a Richard Seymour in mid season form, instead of a DL'man slowly working his way back into game shape? suppose the Patriots had their starting safety, Geno Wilson, playing his customary role?...I suppose we would have won by 50...hey!!! This is fun!!! Let's all play the Indy Colt "Suppose" game!!!

    It didn't matter who they had at WR, it appears that the refs were on a mission to call interference on any and all passes. The Colts lost in spite of this. I think our corners would have done okay if Harrison was in there anyway. He's hurt, too bad, who cares.

    The Pats gameplan was to keep the Colts on the ground and they did it with ease. The problem is they had no answer for Joseph Addai in the first half. Even 73 of Manning's 225 was basically a running play by Addai since it was a short screen where Addai got about 69 of the 73 yards on the ground. Harrison probably wouldn't have made a difference.

    I think their defensive losses were bigger losses because the Colts defense was spent by the fourth quarter.

    Someone on Fox Sports Radio was going on about if they had MH blah blah. So the Colts are really MH and PM? What if the Pats had Morris? Whatever, the last few years the Pats have played many games without their star starters. You play the game you're dealt.

    Agreed.

    As for the thread title -- if the Colts had had the good luck they actually did (refs), and the Pats had NOT had the good luck they actually did (injuries), then the Colts might well have won.

    I look at it this way: Marvin played, he just wore a black and white striped uniform. 141 yards and 6 points. That's about par for him. There you go.

    Would the Colts have made it that close if we had shown up with the Snow Thrower?

    The Colts made plays in the first half, without Harrison. Understand?

    Well....if we had Sammy ...had we won by 3 touch downs? Say all you can but in the end our defense proved it.

    You guys are all missing a big point.

    The refs gave the Colts the ball on the 5 yard line twice due to BS PI calls. It was only great play by our defense that turned this into 6 points rather than 14.

    That was the difference in the game. The Pats hung in despite the atrocious calls being made against them. The Colts scored 7 points on their own, the rest was the result of BS calls.

    We are just lucky that the refs aren't allowed to award points.
