    Have scarcely read PFT since he decided to dedicate himself
    to blackening my team and coach.

    Could he have found that gig unrewarding ...
    so now turns his attention to another league icon ?

    At least someone has picked up on the garbage the Colts are putting on their injury report. The Keiaho "ear" thing is harmless but really stupid. Harrison being "questionable" for a month and a half is dishonest. That means that every Sunday the Colts expect Harrison to have a 50-50 shot of playing in that game...and for 6 weeks in a row the coin has come up "tails".

    The Colts have known for weeks that Harrison would be out and continued to list him as questionable (not even doubtful) to force opponents to gameplan as if Harrison would play.

    When Belichick did something similar with Seymour a couple of years ago (listed as probable I think, but didn't make the trip to Denver), he was called out by the league and the injury reporting rules were changed. Must have been a memo sent out...which committee would be responsible for that?

    I think they're playing by the rules. After all the rules are "Its only cheating if its not Colts doing it".

    What are you going to do? Have Polian force another rule change? Pump up the volume in your stadium? Oh, that's right. You agreed not to do that anymore. That's why it was so quiet in your dome last week. :rofl:

    Harrison did play a game after he was injured and has been doin some practicing. They just take it week by week. How long has Brady been on the Pats report?

    Don't you think every team gameplans as though they will be playing against the opponent's best players? Is it to the Colts advantage to have teams prepare for Harrison instead of Moorehead?

    We're up to 68 straight games I believe...but at least he's always probable.

    What are you implying? Didn't you see the game Sunday night? You can't tell me that Brady's performance was that of a QB who is 100%. Didn't you notice had had nearly 10 incomplete passes and failed to achieve a perfect Passer rating, yet again? It's obvious that the rest of the team had to carry him. He's just fortunate enough to have talent sufficient to cover his inadequacies. After all if he didn't have first rate receiving talent the best he could hope for would be to win three Superbowls. He wouldn't even be seriously considered for MVP, which is, of course, the goal of every team and coaching staff.

    That's my point. Why is he on the report?

    So let's assume that the turning up the heat, pumping in crowd noise, turning off the coach to QB communication, shouting out false snap counts, and the other things are true:

    Is Dungy aware of it in advance?
