    I'm sure that they sung a different tune when Manning set his record three years ago. :rolleyes:

    The timing of this incredibly profound philisophical breakthrough is impeccable.
    It makes me a little bit confused about how an Indy fan could ever, or has ever argued that Manning was in any way superior to Brady. Brady had the rings and Peyton had the stats, till Brady had the rings and the stats. How was Manning ever better if stats dont mean jack? He certainly ain't better looking.

    Hell, just save that thread for every time some Colts troll comes by claiming Manning is better than Brady, then point out the Lombardi count.

    What really frustrated me about last year is we were this close to denying the Manning family a Super Bowl championship forever. They sure as hell aren't getting another one.

    You can't find the opinon of 3 Colts fans and use that as the entire opinion of Colts Nation. Look at the last two posts on there, both disagreeing with the title.

    No offense here, but so what? It's an Indyforum thread and it would be fun to see a troll have to deal with it. It's sort of like showing Dolphins and Cowboys trolls the Jimmy Johnson comments when they come trying to stir up the spygate nonsense. I don't consider trolls to be 'fans' just coming to visit. I treat them all as if they are belligerent drunks who need to be smacked down.

    Someone posted on that site how it took Moss 16 games to get 22 so the record doesnt matter. Actually he got 23, something rice never did dispite playing many 16 game seasons

    I certainly don't think that 50 vs. 49 tells us much about Brady vs. Manning. The actual difference of 1 TD is swamped by the unquantifiable effect of team variables, which point in both directions.

    Still -- wins, points, TDs, and so on are the subject of fairly meaningful records.

    Like some one on this forum said, "What ever floats their boat.."

    According to the ESPN survey on whether you would like to see the Pats go 16-0 or not, 45% of the nation did not want the Pats to go 16-0. About 12% were for it. About 19% did not like the Pats were for it. 7% or so were for some team to get that record.

    The fun part was that from the state of Indiana, 81% voted that they did not want to see Pats go 16-0, by far the highest %. Even Florida came in at around 53%. Considering that it wasn't even the Colts record to begin with, they so desperately wanted to see the Pats lose.:D :D

    The Colts' fans are running out of arguments pretty quickly. When we talk about rings, they bring up stats, now we can bring up stats too.

    Hahaha, this is funny since they were all involved in group masturbation during Peyton's 2004 season.

    Did they mention that the only reason Paymeaton Manning is starting tonight is so he can get 55 more passing yards so he will have eight 4000 yard seasons in a row?

    IndyStar has been Sour Grapes Central since November 4th. Maybe 5% of their fans aren't patting themselves on the back about being 13-2 and how it's better than being 16-0. They need to get over it - New England is a better team. NE finishes games. Indy has lost as many close games as they've won this year. And somehow losing Dwight Freeney makes them MORE of a threat than in our last meeting. I don't know, if he's so replaceable, why did they pay him all that $$$? I swear, if Jim Sorgi beats the Titans tonight you'll be hearing "Matt Cassel couldn't do THAT, Colts best ever!!!!" Yeah, can't wait. Go Titans.

    Oh stop embarrassing folks here with facts. They know how hypocritical it is for pats fans to take such pleasure in records and stats now, and for the same posters to have said they have meant nothing for Manning, Harrison and Favre over the years.
