    My feeling since learning of Dungy's likely retirement - and the fact that his leaning that way was common knowledge in and around Indy - can be best captured by this:

    "Wow. What a GUTLESS performance by that team."

    Seriously, you go in as defending Super Bowl champs, to face an inferior opponent AT HOME, knowing full well that there's an excellent chance your beloved HC, Dungy, will be hanging it up after this post-season - and you put out THAT kind of effort??? REALLY? That is F-ing feeble.

    Compare that to the amped-ness of the Pats' performance in week two, honoring and having the back of Belichick with a hugely emotional effort - "one of the most meaningful wins in my time with the Patriots," according to #54.

    The Indianapolis Colts - what a gutless, pathetic bunch, at least on that day.

    Maybe Dungy wasn't that beloved after all.

    What an embarrassing defense of a Super Bowl Title, they should be forced to give the last one back! ;)

    Kindly refer to him as Saint Dungy.

    The bottom line is that the Colts only went to the superbowl last year on bad officiating, and they have never had a QB who can pull through in tough games, they have a passive aggressive coach who is always worried about irrelevant crap, like overlooking the Bolts and worrying about the Pats a week later, and a GM who whines like a damn baby when his constant rule changes backfire.

    The whole organization is rotten, and soft, and GUTLESS.

    From the QB to the GM, they are just sucking on a silver spoon and looking for a hand-out from the NFL to fulfill their sense of entitlement.

    how about a rematch to make it FAIR.? pats will be ready at any time and any place.

    The outcome of this Sunday is one of factors which Tony decides to stay in Indy.

    He needs to pray HARD this Sun because God has not been on his side.

    The sad thing is that the officials were trying their best to keep the Colts in the game, the Chargers lost their starting RB and QB, and it STILL wasn't enough for the Colts to win!

    I wish people would stop saying this. We weren't that impressive in 2002.

    Why even bother with them? San Diego is playing this week and the Colts are done.

    Hey Pal, exactly how "inferior" is San Diego? These guys own the Colts and Manning, yet you east coasters fail to see that. You know how many pro-bowlers SD has on its roster? If so, why do you sell them short? SD last year's record of 14-2 was not a fluke. Its not like the Colts lost to the Titans or something :rolleyes: Yeah, it was a gutless performance by Colts because they looked flat and not very physical, but that was also due to SD playing them physical.

    Man, the way Pats fans have talked about Manning "choking" with 400 yards, and how bad the Colts are for not taking care of the Chargers, and how much better the Pats are....

    You had better be pretty sure of a victory on Sunday, because if you don't beat a banged up Chargers team who never should have beaten the Colts, after going undefeated...it will go down in much more epic fashion than the Colts surprising loss. I won't say "choke," because I think the word is hopelessly overused, but many will view it that way.

    That said, I realize many of you are sure of victory on Sunday...

    Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. The 2002 squad was an embarrassment against the run and didn't even make it into the playoffs. Though I still hold a grudge against GB for that too.

    I hate the Colts as much as anyone but after watching that game how do you come up with gutless to assess how the Colts played?

    Manning played well but his receivers sucked with balls bouncing off their hands. And it was sweet to see Dallas Clark let the last 4th down pass go through his hands. Inept execution? Sure. Crummy in-game coaching decisions? Yes. (Saint Dungy had to kick the FG with all 3 TOs + the 2MW remaining). The D played lousy and undisciplined but how much of that was the Chargers playing well?

    Look the Colts laid an egg. I couldn't picture the Pats playing like that at home in a playoff game. But why was it gutless?

    Now to piss off the Charger fans lurking around here. Gutless to me actually was Rivers strutting back from the locker room and bouncing around on the sidelines, looking healthier than some of the guys in the game, but not going in. That's gutless. Could you imagine Brady ever doing that? I'm thinking in a 4th quarter playoff nail-biter you would have to bodily drag him off the field if he couldn't play. Rivers played great while he was in. But that was all I ever needed to know about that guy. Did anybody else see that quick sideline shot after Rivers came back from the locker room when LT went up to Rivers, said something to him, shot him a disgusted glare and walked away? I'm thinking LT knows what this guy is made of also.

    I agree with you, and I am a Pats fan. Some Pats fans' Colts obessession knows no bounds. Thank goodness the Pats staff and players are not spending their time analyzing what happened to the Colts.

    Colts is a OVERRATED team. In fact, your coach and QB are also OVERRATED.

    Your team WON 1 SB last year and suddenly everybody thinks yours can defeat pats. Come on.

    your coach WAS FIRED because of his 'underachievement' on 2 TALENTED teams. I'm surprised he is still offered the job even though he still has unerachievement record on your all star Colts.

    I watched your QB played last weekend and I was not really impressed at all in the first half Q. 3 interceptions as a second TOP QB in NFL.? You gotta be kidding me when his performance has been really going down after 04.

    The fact that you lost to Chargers says something about your team performance but you know what.?

    healthy colts vs healthy pats in 08 will prove that everything in your team is OVERRATED.
