    Lotsa people expecting the demise of the Colts. Indy has always scared me more than Pitt, and I see no reason for that to change this year.

    That video is ridiculous. And the Colt fans obsessing over it are ridiculous. But, the fact remains that Manning is THE one player I fear the most as a NE fan.

    Manning looked like he wants to eat the league in that shot. I really don't know how anyone can predict the demise of that team as long as he's taking snaps. They'll be tough to beat this year, no matter what the "experts" on here believe.

    They're always scary in the regular season. Then in the postseason they lose in the first round to a team they beat in the regular season. #18, who I call "old 7-and-8" for his career postseason record, always finds a way to be un-clutch.

    I still think the Colts are on the decline. They should have been between 8-10 wins last year and found a way to win games they had no business winning. You can't do that year in and year out no matter who they are. Either they will get better this season or the breaks that were there last year probably won't break their way again this year (Sage Rosenfels helicopter move in a guaranteed win, several games won on fumbles returned for TDs, etc.).

    No disrespect, but you could say the same thing about quite a few of the Patriots teams prior to '07.

    You can say that about the 2001 team and they regressed in 2002 to a 9-7 non-playoff team. Other than that, you can't say that about any season other than maybe one or two games. The Colts had 4-5 games where they should have lost and won. I can only think of one Pats season that fits that category and it proved my point.

    The Colts don't scare me. It's more like i'm scared of the referees giving biased officiating to the Colts. I mean we know Bill Polian is head of the rules committee. Patriots were robbed in the 2006 AFC Championship game against the Colts because of the biased officiating. It's really the Colts who are the scared ones. If they weren't scared they wouldn't need to change the rules and they get all the calls go in their favor. They know how good of a head coach Belichick is. He always had Manning's number for years until the Colts had to change the rules after the 2003 season putting more emphasis on the DB's and defensive pass interference. After that it seemed like the referees were giving favorable officiating to the Colts

    Again, no disrespect. However, I feel you're wrong in your assertion about the 2001 team being the only Pats team that fits whatever category this conversation belongs to. There were quite a few games, namely the Browns and Titans games in 2003, that the Pats easily could have lost (and more that escape me at the moment). The Pats beat the Titans on an overtime pick-six by Law. They beat the Brown, who were driving for a possible go-ahead score to win the game, with a late-game Law interception.

    I'm not trying to start a war of any kind with you. I'm merely pointing out that almost every team wins a handful of games they should probably not win in any given year, including the Patriots. Heck, even the 2007 squad should have lost a few games, namely the Ravens game where an ill-advised TO call by some member of the coaching staff that, by rule, isn't even allowed to call a TO negated a 4th and inches stop by that incredible defense that gave the Pats life.

    In the end, the games are won and lost on the field. We'll see where the Colts are when the dust settles. Whether they're good or bad, they always give the Patriots a tough game (kinda like the Dolphins).

    We'll never have to worry about them as long as the Chargers play them in an early round :cool:

    As long as Tom Brady respects Peyton Manning so much, who are we to disagree?
