    With eleven days to go before the Pats play again, discussion about the Patriots is starting to dry up. The biggest news over the next 72 hours will be the first round of the 2010-11 NFL playoffs, so I'm going to go ahead and start four threads on each of those games now.

    #6 New York Jets (11-5) at #3 Indianapolis Colts (10-6)
    Saturday January 8 at 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC
    Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will be the announcers
    Andrea Kremer will be the sideline reporter
    Dave Sims and Boomer Esiason will do the radio broadcast

    Indianapolis is currently favored by 2½ to 3 points
    Over under is 44½ points
    The Money Line has the Jets +112 to +120; Colts -132 to -140



    Edit: Final tally from poll on front page of PatsFans.com - 67% thought the Colts would win, 33% thought the Jets would win.

    So we'll either see that fat slob cry at the presser after the game, or see the pink forehead choke artist throw his team under the bus when he's one and done..AGAIN.

    Sounds good.

    Hadn't thought of it in these terms before; if Ryan can't beat Manning now, will he ever beat him?

    Kravitz: If Jets' Ryan can't beat Manning's Colts this week, when will he? | The Indianapolis Star | IndyStar.com

    Kravitz continues - and Ryan shows he seems to be more focused on the past than on the present:

    Then Ryan blatantly tries to use the media to rally his team with his next comment. Apparently in his mind someone else trying to win is the equivalent of 'trying to stick it to him'. It's also interesting to note that Ryan once again uses the word "me" rather than "us" or "the Jets".

    The Jets are no better this year than they were last year.

    Toughest game of the 4 to figure out: Just as good a chance winning a bet on this game as betting red or black on the craps table.

    All it takes is for one sack with Sanchez driven into the ground on his hurt shoulder, and the JETS season is toast.

    Here's the real deal: Rex is giving all these pressers and all this thud & blunder speechifying for one reason, and one reason only: To lay in a batch of excuses for when they flame out against the Colts.

    Lord knows I hate to see goober and that bunch of mid-western inbred troglodytes win, but I hate the JETS even more. I'd gladly root for both teams to lose if it were possible, but I'm predicting Indy pulls one out in the final seconds by a single point.

    Hopefully, both teams will be so beat up that neither will pose a threat to anyone next season, let alone the playoffs.

    I'm looking forward to relaxing while watching this game knowing regardless of the outcome, there are some positives.

    But this Colt's story simply amazed me.................is there any way, short of spreading anthrax on the stadium seating in Gillette, that a PO game would not be sold out 3 days before? I'm even talking the pre-Kraft years on aluminum benches.

    The Indianapolis Colts are pulling out all the stops in an effort to ensure that Saturday's playoff showdown with the New York Jets won't be blacked out on local television.

    I couldn't decide who to root for in this game but I decided I want the Jets to go down now in shame after backing into the playoffs--one and done. The Colts are then welcome to come to snowy,windy, frigid Foxboro where Peyton will wilt away into the fetal position to avoid getting sacked after throwing 4 or five interceptions.

    Any chance they both can lose today? I;m really starting to dislike the Colts as much as I dislike the Jets. I don't want either one to win. Not out of fear but out of dislike.

    I'm very disappointed that I am going to miss this game today... Stupid work!!

    I don't care who wins, although I would rather see the Jets lose. I just want them to beat the hell out of each other.

    Wow, that is pretty sad. I know Indiana is basketball country, but come on. A Super Bowl loss, a few injuries this year, a few less wins than last year, and the fan base loses that much interest in their team?

    I don't see the Jets winning this game. Peyton Manning will watch what Brady di and throw the ball 45 times. Jets can't score with the Colts. There WR's drop way too many balls.
