    This was God's will, folks. That's it plain and simple. You can't go against God.

    Plus, consider this: a Christian coach won, so America can be proud. If the Patriots want to get to the next level, they have to fire their Jewish coaches.

    The Bears were done before they walked on the field: Mushin Muhammad? Are you kidding me? God would barf if he saw that?

    FOLKS, DON'T TAKE OFFENSE, I'M BEING FACETIOUS!

    He's riffing off every winning player and coach signing the cross and praising god.

    Which does get old after a while.

    Why does no one think to hail Satan? Surely Bill Polian owes him a little credit.

    Actually it was a slew of bad breaks that sound like excuses but are mostly totally legitimite. Too bad for us, damnit.

    He's just joking. Dungy and Irsay were talking about how God was with the Colts the whole time during their interviews.

    God does not care about football. God does not intend to help Sports teams win. What a disgrace. God and football dont mix. What a bunch of idiots.

    I am sure God loves every team and has no preference :D

    If he did New Orleans would have won it all this year or the Jets or Giants in 2001-02

    Sorry for everyone that didn't watch the Postgame show.

    But I thought Dungy was ridiculous.

    He actually said this: "I'm not only proud that Lovie Smith and I were the first two African-Americans to coach in the Super Bowl, but that we were the first Christian coaches, and God lead us on this journey and blessed us."

    WTF? What does that make the other coaches of other religions? (Nationality has nothing to do with this) I mean, that podium is totally inappropriate for that kind of talk. Does he have any non-Christians on his team? I'm OK with people that say God helped us win this football game, or whatever, it's just a cliche. But Tony Dungy takes it too far. How does he know what's in the heart of the other coaches?

    He actually said that ? What a self righteous pompous piece of sh!t. I'm agnostic but I don't believe they were the first Christian coaches - and WHO GIVES A F*CK if they're the first black HC. Give it a damn rest.

    exactly when did Dungy say anything about the other coaches? At no time did he say "God wanted us to win" or "God made us win". Thats something other people, who dont understand what giving thanks to your God in the good times or the bad, which Dungy does, read into it for themselves.

    Dungy, Smith, Kurt Warner, Shaun alexander, Herm Edwards. They will give God the glory whether they win or they lose.

    It takes nothing from you and it is no comment or reflection on what anyone else believes. He has a right to say it for himself without worrying about P.C.

    if he actually said they were the first Christian coaches that would be a mistake. But Im not sure he said that. I didnt hear that and would have to go look at the tape again. I believe he only said first two african-american coaches and Christian coaches, not first Christian coaches.
    Tom Landry and Dan Reeves come to mind immediatlely

    Many Christian coaches have won-actually I never bothered to wonder about any coach's religion so I couldn't even name them. I didn't tape it-he must have said something else besides that. Oh well.

    like I said, I dont believe Dungy said it. He said ..."Not only the first african-american coaches but Christian coaches as well"

    if i heard it wrong and he did say it im sure it was a mistake in how he said it.

    either way, in thanking your God, it is not saying "God wanted us to win", its just properly giving your Lord his due. And the key is that people like Dungy do it whether he wins or loses.

    On the podium right after the game he said that he and Lovie were the first Christians. Bizarre. And yes, he said that God lead them to the culmination of THIS journey. What do you think THIS refers to? It refers to winning? Irsay led off and said the same thing? Sounds like yo didn't watch it.

    Belichick ain't no Jew.

    Even though it's on way way way way WAY different scales, Bob Kraft and I are each Jews running businesses. And we each know that you do NOT hire Jews to work the tough jobs in the trenches. Lawyers, accountants, agents, etc: no problem. Guys on the front line: NFW.

    Was this post tongue in cheek? I have no idea.

    The Jesus-freaks just take this stuff so far. It isn't enough that they have faith and keep it themselves. They have to just spew it and spew it and spew it....

    I can't wait until somebody wins something one time and says, "First of all, I'd like to say that there is no God and religion had nothing to do with our victory today. It's all about the men and women who worked hard to see this goal to its conclusion." It'd be no different than what the religious nuts do.

    Right, I think the way Dungy is, he's saying it sincerely and from his heart, and not trying to annoy people. He just always talks like that, and there was a lot of it this week with both he and Lovie.

    Besides after everything the guy has been through, hey, if he wants to talk about how God was with the Colts or whatever, I don't mind.

    Now if you want to talk about Irsay going on about how God is the number one Colts fan, go right ahead :D

    Just take out the wqord "first" and you ahve what Dungy actually said. He is quite aware that there have been many Christian coaches before him.

    Yeah so why did he say it? Just to be a pompous ass? Do other non-Christian coaches not deserve it or something?

    i'll have to watch the tape again, i dont think he said it that way, that they were the first. and if he did, it was a mistake.

    as for the second part, i wasnt going to get into that on the football board with you but you brought it up. win or lose, for a Christian, God is in control. it doesnt mean God wants the Christian to win,. If that was the case, as they say, why play the game?

    its an illogical leap to say just because one gives the Lord credit for everything, that hes saying "God wants our side to win"
    Dungy had as much faith in God when his son died or when he lost past playoff games. It is only a slight towards other faiths if you want it to be.

    He said it give the credit to his God, which he would have done in defeat as well.
    What does that have to do with the non-Christian coaches? They are free to believe as they wish as well.

    You have the choice to read more into it and be offended by it if you want to be.
