    The shoe really is on the other foot. The Patriots have the team/QB putting up sick numbers/stats and are the annointed ones. The Colts are the defending Super Bowl champs and are barely getting any love.

    Pats fans have to be blind not to see the role reversal.

    '03 Pats win SB. Next season

    04' Colts. Nobody can stop them not even the Pats. Pats win SB.

    '06 Colts win SB. Next season

    '07 Pats, nobody can stop them, they're going 16-0. Colts win SB? ;)

    Wrong! The New England Patriots manage thru injuries once again to win another Super Bowl. The Colts defense has no chance stopping Moss, Stallworth, and Welker at wide receiver. Meanwhile, Laurence Maroney should be fully healthy against the Colts and Kevin Faulk should be available for the entire game since I hope he will not be returning punts anytime soon.

    If I were you, I'd be focused on defeating Jax tomorrow evening, rather than worrying about a lack of "love." There's a decent chance you'll get your first loss tomorrow against a very physical team that is familiar with the Colts.

    I remember the same being said as the Colts made a trip to Foxboro and the Pats had a patch-work defense. Everyone thought the Colts would have a field day on them. I guess that's why they play the games.

    I'm not worried about the lack of love, I acutally think it's fine. I'm just pointing out that it's almost like looking into a mirror with the teams switched.

    BTW, I really don't think it matters if I'm focused on the Jags at this moment or not. You are right, they could hang an L on the Colts. They have a strong front seven and a really good running game and they tend to give the Colts fits.

    There's a difference between our defense and yours. Ours is good. Even with second stringers filling in.

    Who needs to stop them when Freeney and Mathis will be at the QB two seconds after Brady says hike.

    I'm sorry, that made no sense. But I'm just going to continue to laugh and pretend it did.

    Who gives a **** about the Colts right now anyway? Let's focus on the Redskins.

    I'll give you a hint. Brady won't have time to throw the ball. Get it now slow one?

    Why do I smell panic in the breath of some of these Colts' fans? :D

    Like last year's defensive MVP was on Brady today? Jason Taylor is much better than Freeney or if you hadn't noticed that Freeney only has 7 sacks in last 21 regular season games. Freeney is not the force he was the first four seasons in the NFL. Also funny how Freeney practically did nothing in last year AFC Championship Game. One tackle .... ditto Mathis.

    No, i'm happy we're playing NFL teams, so that when we play a certain overrated team we'll handle them easily.

    Have you not been watching the games. Teams roll away from him or block him with like 3 guys. If the guy wasn't a force you'd block him one on one. Lol! Teams know better than to do that.

    For once, the New England Patriots actually have a better offense than the Colts. That must be blasphemy if spoken in Indianapolis.

    I know. I think the current confidence is strongly overblown, at least pending the regular season matchup.

    And even then -- maybe unless it's a thrashing against an essentially healthy Colts team -- it won't mean much.
