    Manning a "superstar" Sunday night (never mind the 6 ints)

    http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071112/COLUMNISTS01/711120396


    SAN DIEGO -- Adam Vinatieri missed a clutch kick.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Sure, and the Pope will be hosting a toga party at the Vatican on Friday night.
    Vinatieri might miss once in a while -- he's human, after all -- but he never, ever, ever misses when the game is on the line.
    Who will ever forget that shot of Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, standing on the sideline in Baltimore after Vinatieri's fifth field goal of the day put the Colts into the AFC Championship Game?
    "Money,'' Dungy said.
    And he is.
    Or was.
    Vinatieri missed a hurried field goal wide left near the end of the first half.
    So when he lined up with a minute and a half remaining in the game, his Colts poised to engineer the biggest regular-season comeback in the team's history, you figured, "Hey, he's Vinatieri. He misses an easy one once, maybe, but twice? He can't miss twice."
    He missed twice.
    The shame of it was, the Colts deserved to win this football game. After all the obstacles they surmounted, after digging deep into the depth chart, they deserved to enjoy a long, happy flight back home from San Diego.
    Consider what they had going against them:

    This guys obviously on Lysergic acid diethylamide to write something as out there as that. And most of the sheep will head to the KOOL AID trough and drink it right up. They'll pass the Electric Acid Kool Aid Test with flying colors. BTW EAKT is a very good book I'd forgotten about it until writing this post. :)

    If Marty were still on the Chargers' sideline, SD wins that easily.

    SD would have destroyed indy if Marty were still the coach along with his staff.. Maybe 40-10

    Re: OT:Colts homer Kravitz (Indy Star) boo-hooing over injuries

    No ...more like 24 or 27 to 10 or 17..less picks but more sacks.. arty qwould have brought pressure EVERY single 3rd and long.. Marty's a great coach...he harrassed Brady that whole game and actually got the turnover he needed to win. That was his call and it worked..the Pats were done...except that Marty didn't teach the fundamental strength when the ultimate pressure is on...YOU still look to amke the play that counts...Troy Brown did. He robbed the ball from abigger younger far more physically taleneted player who made the play Marty was looking for. Why??? Because Troy Brown has NEVER choked or lost his head in a game NEVER...short, nondescript fring NFL lucky he even had a job...but THAT's WHY BB had him in there. even though he was no D player...and that why Troy is still carried on this roster and why he'll retire a Patriot. No way a Troy Brown should even be on that field..Tell Mike Martz that...tell Jimmy Johnson in the Orange bowl ...888 yard overtime TD on 3rd and 15 at the ten. Seymour is a tremendous talent. Ask every team that plays the Pats...Ty Warren is the smartest, never out of positin D lineman the Patriots have...a REAL Pro's pro...no one knows.. Ask the players...they just laugh because they love cracking on Ty, the one guy on that team who personifies the complete Patriots philosophy player. ******* Colvin took two years beforte he finally got it...now Colvin is dangerous in clutch situation because he plays off Warren's keys. A.T. will become the most heralded star Patriots D player without question..next season. He's still learning how to take advantage of the work that Seymour and Warren do. We'll be back next season and everyone knows it

    Kravitz has become an embarrassing house boy for the Angels. :blahblah:
    The only thing that kept the Angels in the game was the ineptness of the Chargers. That was some really bad football.

    That article is the softest of the soft.

    The Colts should have been ripped up one side and down the other for that performance.

    6 ints and a shanked game winner, and that's the incisive journalism they can come up with? Title should have been "Ugly Colts Do Themselves In"

    You do not deserve to win any game after throwing six interceptions and allowing two return TDs. The Colts scored a gimme "let's do nothing and hope Phillip Rivers will mess it up" TD to even pull within two points.

    Dungy was outcoached by NORV TURNER. They did NOT deserve to win that game.

    I disagree entirely! NEITHER TEAM deserved a win. The "Classy Bowl" looked like an NFC game. The Chargers served up that game on a silver platter and Peyton and his "Baker Street Irregulars" (who are those guys!) choked on it.

    As long as Norv is running San Diego, count 'em out. Also, as long as they have Phillip Rivers, they are screwed. He's just awful.

    The Colts players deserve better coaches than what Dungy and staff are providing. How do they field a team with such little depth? The second and third stringers looked like they hadn't even practiced. Their special teams play is woeful.

    Nice clutch performance from Peyton and Adam ! Good luck, Indianapolis! There's always NASCAR!!. :D

    So much for "There's the Colts and Patriots and then eveyone else. Puh-leez!"

    BINGO, we have Bingo!
    Hopefully, this game dispenses the media with putting the Colts with the Patriots. Although, I'm sure we'll hear all about the injury factor. Come on guys, what other team could pull out wins with so many injured players...................... Hey, how about this trend. Ever notice when the Patriots beat someone how they go on a losing streak. Next up, K.C. Just what the Dr. ordered, a hard hitting team.

    This is what I hate:
    "Almost any other team looks at the depleted roster, the 23-0 deficit, the pelting rain and the final game of a hellish month, shrugs its shoulders and thinks, "Hey, the odds were stacked against us. It was their night. What did you expect?''"

    It's just flat out wrong. Idiots like this think teams actually give up if stuff goes wrong. The only time I've ever seen a team give up is in the last few weeks of the season when they have nothing to play for.

    The Cowboys and Packers are playing better than the Colts.

    And the Steelers actually won their game yesterday, despite their poor special teams play.

    Exactly. How can the Colts "not apologize" for that loss when SD had less than 100 yds rushing and receiving? This guy Kravitz is a joke. Keep being proud of losses.

    Interesting season - the Patriots have always been without top caliber receivers and have suffered key injuries during the season and the results?

    3 Super Bowl Rings

    This season, as much as everyone gets to see what Tom Brady can do with receivers as good as those that the Colts have had - we also get a chance to see what Manning would do without all his top weapons.

    The result? An embarrassing 6 INT performance against a very bad San Diego team.

    That should be the headline right there. A scary thought to say the least!

    What a freakin' ball-washer this guy is.

    No offense to any if you live out there, but I hate that whole midwest attitude. "Aw shucks, they done beat us. Aw well, we'll get em next time!"
    I hear all this crap said about east coast mentality, at least we have perception. We know when to cheer and when to groan. I just can't believe any self respecting journalist would write such ridiculous ass kissing garbage.
