    1-Thomas COSTED us a game when he hit another Colts player. What a stupid mistake!
    2-I looked at Cassell's stat on NBC last night and realize that he is a 'short-range' throwing guy. He needs to improve his long range throw.

    Cassel felt the noise caused Thomas' penalty.

    Cassell throws a nice long ball. Did you even watch the game last night? The reason the Pats ran for 150 yards out of the draw play is because Indy had 5 guys looking after Moss and Gaffney.

    Ifs...

    1. If Belichick hadn't gone for 2 points, the score would have been 14-13 before Ghost's last field goal, and not 15-12.

    2. If the refs' hadn't given a bad spot to the 9.5 Faulk run on 1st down, then BJGE would have definitely gotten the first down on the 2nd and 2.5 right before the Thomas penalty.

    3. If Belichick had a challenge, he could have thrown it after the bad spot on the BJGE run.

    Those are games within the game.

    4. If the refs had called a penalty on one of the pick plays by the Colts, the Patriots might have won.

    Do you all remember when Troy Brown was called for a ticky tack pick play against the Colts in the AFCCG afew years ago?

    The Colts' pick was 10x worse.

    Get over it. You lost. I remember last year when the Colts played you with no recievers you didn't complain about injuries. I thought that the Pats were the ultimate team? If a starter goes down you just keep your mouth shut and plug and chug right?

    When the Pats were mauling Colts recievers in the playoffs back in 2003-2004 I don't remember complaints about calls (or non-calls) by Pats fans.

    This board is full of a lot of woulda coulda shoulda stuff.

    The Pats lost to the Colts stop making excuses.

    we lost because we are too slow and inexperienced at CB. the Colts crossing patterns could not be stopped and our CB could not keep up with the Colt WR. Blaming Thomas for the loss is a little stupid. Yes, he put us out of FG range on that penalty, but who is to say we would have scored. one play does not lose a game imo, we just are too banged up with injuries to compete in some games.

    I never expect much insight from Colts fans. You lived up to my expectations.

    The thread is called, IF.

    Try to comprehend what you're reading next time. As far as your whining and crying about 2003, I'm sure you already paid us back with that bogus AFC championship you won in 2007. It was handed to you on a platter by the refs.

    Funny, I seem to remember this NFL head coach in a gray sweatshirt saying something along the lines of "if if's and buts were wishes and nuts we'd all have a merry christmas" last year or the year before. ;)

    Excellent thread. Interesting and informative. Original as well. I have not yet seen a thread of this pure awesomeness posted in this forum. NEPatriot, you have officially blown my mind.

    No, but all week I have been hearing the Pats would beat us because of our secondary issues.

    So, a Charger fan and Colts fan are going to argue on a Patriots website?

    I was referring to this thread, I havent read every thread yet. Most fans are blaming the loss on:

    1) BB and the coaching staff

    2) the stupid penalty by Thomas

    3) the Gaffney drop

    Well I was referring to this whole site. Excuses out the wazoo. Including all the Pats injuries.

    Look, after the noise you Pats fans made last year by rubbing each and every single point the Pats scored into opposing teams and fans faces I just can't help getting a warm feeling in my stomach reading all the excuses around here.

    I'm not saying the Colts are the best team ever, but they won the game. Every team can say "shoulda woulda coulda". If the refs hadn't called a late penalty against the Colts vs Jacksonville on that 4th down on the final Jags drive (and by late I mean 2-3 seconds after the play was actually over) the Colts win that game. If the Colts had had Sanders for GB and Tenn we might have won those games.

    The GB loss for the Colts was in large part because we had penaties out the wazoo. I thought a lot of them were BS too but I'm a Colts fan, I bet GB fans thought they were absolutely great calls.

    Bottom line is the Pats got beat. No, the Colts don't look like their usual self, they've looked terrible at times this season, but last night they were good enough to beat a very mediocre Pats team so for this week at least I'm not complaining.

    Everyone has a bonehead play now and then. Gaffney has exceded expectations and has been a positive contributor catching a blocking, and I still like him. No one is perfect.

    That Dave Thomas on the other hand... now he'll be known for 2 plays - the catch in TN a couple yrs ago and this penalty.
