    Should they win on Sunday, I'd love to see BB and the Pats waltz right back into the locker room, shower, do the post game, get on a plane, and fly back to Foxboro; eschewing the on-field post game trophy presentation and interviews. When asked why they did it, they can say that they did not want to be disrespectful to the Colts. See what the NFL has to say about that.

    well that's probably what was going to happen either way against the colts...win or lose, i wouldnt have been surprised if they exchanged handshakes and left, not like what they did in SD

    i say that because experts 5:1 picked the chargers over the pats, the pats had their backs against the wall and they came out and overcame everything that was thrown at them

    if i was told that i was going to lose, was trash talked the whole week through, and shown no respect then i'll go out and dance to w/e i want when i beat you...

    give respect to gain respect...

    I think yesterday's on field post game celebration was a spur of the moment thing, after a game which even a lot of the Patriots probably feared would go the other way. They're only human. I don't think it will happen in Indy though because of a lot of mutual respect between the Pats and Colts. Same as with Yankees - Red Sox, the fans have more hatred for the enemy team, the players mostly respect. And, as others have pointed out, the Chargers rubbed our nose in it last year in Foxborough.

    The hell with that, I hope Hobbs jacks the Colts stupid tip drill celebration. I'm cool with Hobbs being our one bad guy, we need a guy like that.

    Look, if you're going to make up jacka** celebrations, expect them thrown back in your face.

    I wouldn't expect a repeat of the Merriman dance. That was a reponse to the way the Chargers handled themselves during, and leading up to the game. With the exception of Warren Sapp, Tony Dungy's players historically rarely give their opponents that kind of motivation.
