    Anyone see these tools on ESPN this afternoon? they were interviewed together and asked about the game and tried their best to be Pats clones in BB speech, but couldn't hack it. They said Dungy gave them a light week and didn't want them talking to the media at all and especially before Wednesday, but here they are on Tuesday doing full featured double interview on ESPN. So let me get this straight their are reports out of Boston that some Pats have checked in on Monday voluntarily to get an early start and we have these clowns from the Colts doing interviews before they're supposed to and haven't even practiced yet. All this and we're the team blowing people out, our preparation may be one reason why. Just thought I'd point out some of the disparities between the teams approach I welcome more comments on different approaches to the game from the rival teams.

    oh and BTW Why is Jackson doing stupid stuff like after having a concussion and only being a 4th year player and Bethea a second year player? Hardly the team representatives I'd want for my team. Although, Bethea has been impressive in his short career, Jackson is nothing but a recently concussed nickel back posing as a starting CB in a very suspect secondary.

    Umm...did they actually say something stupid? Or are you just calling them "clowns" for the fact of having done an interview? :confused: Players for every team do mid-week interviews all the time.

    Very good points!!

    However we have to recognize the 2007 Colts as one of the greatest teams of all time.
    Look at thier winning margin of victory,improved defense and pro-bowlers.
    They are great and they could (40%) beat us.

    Ok you can believe what you want about Jackson. The fact is though that the Colts have THE MOST physical pair of corners in the league. And obviously the Colts know what they are doing, since they are, well, 7-0 and the reigning World Champs!!!

    I think you might be reading too much into it. I thought they were ok actually. They didn't talk trash and said the Pats were good and that they didn't think it was possible to "fully stop" the Pats offense. I'm not sure that by their doing this interview it means they are not preparing or that there aren't Colts practicing today also. I don't think we should throw the baby out with the bathwater and hate on all of the Colts players like other fans do to the Pats.

    It was hard to figure out which was more stupid - the whole post or this statement. WTH were you trying to ask? By the way, that suspect secondary ranks 1st in the the league.

    For the sake of the Pats fans I'm glad you weren't interviewed.

    Colts need some time off after two road games in less than six days. Colts also don't have to spend time traveling.

    Patriots don't need extra rest, and they're going to lose a day traveling to Indy and settling in.

    This thread sucks, it's beyond reaching. Wilfork is doing an interview today, too and he's also only a 4th year player. Why do some people need to hate the other team so badly that they're willing to make stuff up? This is the kind of thing I'd expect to read on ESPN, not from "true" fans.

    LMAO! Let's see how your "MOST physical pair of corners in the league" do against our receivers, shall we?

    The Patriots will put forth their best effort of the year against the Colts, I am certain of that.

    I doubt you will be back here after the pats put up 50+ pts on Mr. 'Quiet Strength' and his team of whiney blowhards. I'll bet Bill Pollian has lodged 5 pre-emptive complaints to the rest of his lackeys on the competition comittee and stocked up on plenty of Midol by now.

    Good. He'll need it.

    Having said all that, this thread's original complaint is pointless.

    Vs who? You have yet to play a potent O. Yet to play a team like the pats. When you did play teams with decent passing games like the Texans they where missing there entire running game and best wr. I forgot , jacksonville has an exellent passing attack after there starting qb gets knocked out :rolleyes: The jags passing game was garbage to begin with.

    That secondary is suspect AT BEST.

    Pats players do many interviews I have seen them on ESPN. I definitely have seen a couple of defensive players on TV...and I believe Donte Stallworth was on one of the ESPN week day shows.

    Baffles me, too. A couple of players give a routine interview and say nothing inflammatory. So we call them clowns and say this shows the "different approaches" between our two teams? WTH?

    Damn, some people on this board manage to find ways to turn everything into Colts-bashing. As far as I'm concerned, none of this trash talk is going to matter once the game starts anyways, so what's the point?

    Can't we all get along ?

    Feel and spread the love !

    Personally I hope we kick their butts and CBS is smart enough to have a camera on Bill Polian so they catch his reactions. I don't know how this game is going to turn out, but if the Pats hand the Colts a beating, watching him will be more fun then watching the game ! If I worked in Indy, I'd fill his box with lots of vases and breakables.

    Jeez, I thought the Cowboys and the Redskins had good defenses, at least that's what they thought until AFTER the game.

    well your point was that the Colts secondary is good despite the fact that they haven't faced any decent offenses. We have faced atleast 2 decent defenses and obliterated them. Anyway, arguing about this is really stupid when the game is 6 days away, we'll just wait and see.

    You asked who the pats offense has faced and then when somebody gives an answer about defences, both of whom ranked in the top 10 before the game, you just scoff at it?

    who is beyond reaching? One of my points with the thread was that at least two of the Colt's players blatantly disregarding Dungy's requests not to speak to the media about the game and especially don't do it before Wednesday. But, it's no big deal. Just read half of the post and flame your own. Thanks guys. Makes me understand why so many other sports fans hate Boston fans. What would we see on this board if some of our Pat's disregarding BB's requests openly?

    Nice obfuscation. Your original post was not about this fake indignation over the Colts players disobeying Dungy. And do you honestly think they did this without his permission? I'm pretty sure that people who just blindly trash players on other teams over absolutely nothing is why people hate certain fan bases. Wait nevermind, people prefer Boston fans who attack their players without reason, you're totally right sorry.

    The Washington Redskins defense and secondary is far superior to the Colts. Meanwhile, what offense has the Colts defense faced this year?

    And your other points? Ahh, complete BS! Besides, Dungy's been talking about the game already, too, so I'm sure they were on pretty solid ground. Fact is the Colts don't run the kind of tight ship that we do, a request not to talk to the media isn't what it would be in New England. Do you know if Dungy has any problem with it? Or are you just raking muck?

    And I'm not attacking you, I'm attacking your point. I'm not going to pretend to agree with points I disagree with just because I happen to cheer for the same team.

    Obfuscation huh? I'm wondering why I saw an edit at the end of your post. I wonder if you responded so quickly and emotionally that you misspelled the word or thought you used it incorrectly that you had to go back to you post and edit it. Pathetic. Fake indignation huh? What about Dungy openly stating on Sunday/Monday that he didn't want his players coming out and talking to the media about the game and in the same ESPN interview stated that he gave his boys the days off until Wednesday, to which Jackson and Bethea confirmed during the interview today. As far as other fan bases hating us, taking a lot around at the blogs and the sports writers they all think we're arrogant and have to be right on everything. Case in point your response posts to this thread.

    They were on solid ground huh? Did you see the interview? They stated during the interview that they went behind Dungy's back and they reason ESPN got the interview is that they went to Jackson and Bethea personally on their days off and not through the Colt's organization and stated that if ESPN had gone through the Colt's they probably wouldn't be on TV. Do I know if Dungy has a problem? No, not exactly, but these actions of his players go against what he stated just one day earlier and if I made the statements he did and my players did this then I would have a problem.

    Do I need to point out the hilarious irony of your first sentence? You attacked my accusation that you were obfuscating by....obfuscating. And by the way, I edited my post so that I could add on the last part once I realized how dumb it was that you were implying that people hate Boston fans because they are reasonable in defending warrant-less attacks on their teams' players. And arrogance is trashing everything non-Boston and then turning around and calling people who have the audacity to see the other side "arrogant." Look, your thread clearly blows, as is evidenced by everyone's response to it, so just let it go.

    Well, we did eek out a win against the #6 defense in the league. You know, the one with the "most physical" secondary that we all heard so much about, and the "only no.1 draft pick cornerback lineup"?

    Are you guys going to be back after we blow you out too?

    I'm just saying, "ColtinIraq." You should bet on the game if you're so confident. I'd bet on the Pats, would you bet on the Colts?
