    Have Green Bay,Dallas or Pittsburgh overtaken injury riddled Indy as 2nd best team in the NFL?

    We all know NE is #1 even Indy fans realize this now

    All four of those teams are serious contenders, imho.

    I think Dallas is surging -- even if they don't have an answer to the Patriots. I almost clicked Indy, but I'm starting to think they are done. We've seen great [Patriots] teams overcome devastating injuries, but I don't think Indy has the horses. When people start playing out of position, the injuries mount. See you next year, Payton.

    Indianapolis is the second best team in my mind until I'm convinced that they can't adapt to the injuries. One game where Manning stunk out the joint is not enough to convince me.

    Indy, last week's loss was a freak game, that they would have won anyway if Vinatieri hadn't missed that FG.

    I have to say Dallas, despite what I said earlier about my expecting them to blow up. They have pretty much waltzed through their schedule. OTOH, Green Bay struggled in several of their wins, and Pittsburgh lost to the likes of Arizona and a not-so-impressive Denver team.

    I think the SD game was already a failure to adapt to injuries. Lack of quality receiving is part of what caused Manning to throw all those picks. Brady didn't have games like that when Branch was out.

    Another indystar scumbag. If you notice we actually give the colts credit in our pole. Considering your dumb ass gm tied up all his money in 4 "stars" and cannot afford to field a roster with depth you are now screwed :D

    Tell Bill injuries happen in the NFL.

    As they stand now:
    Dallas is definitely the 2nd best team, imho. If they could have played without all the penalties against themselves in the 2nd half, that game might have gone down to the wire.
    Pittsburgh lost to Arizona and Denver...wow.
    Heck even the Giants list of losses looks better.

    I'll hold judgement on the Colts until I see them play a decent offense in their current situation. I realize injuries suck, but they're facing KC, ATL, JAX, BAL, OAK for the next 5 weeks.
    I can't see their injury situations, aside from Freeney, not being resolved by the end of that run, and I think only Jax can give them a game out of those contests. 12-4 most likely, by the end.

    Pittsburg is the dark horse in this race. With a (young) rookie coach, they are still feeling their way around. But this rook has been able to set up guys like the 'burger to play on a higher level. Watch out for them.

    Dallas and Indy are both very solid (duh), but they have their weaknesses which are not as easy to hide as on other teams.

    GB is a wild card. Favre is playing like he wants to go out on a high note. Playing his heart out, and with savvy, using his experience to the max. Would be interesting to see them in the Supe.

    Screw you man, half this board knows your a NE troll. I contribute more discussion to this board than you ever have. You're just a hater man. You can put that "pole" where the sun don't shine. As far as the "poll" goes, I think NE should be a choice. As for the roster, it's fine and dandy brother.

    What more do the Patriots have to do to prove to you that they are better than the field? They've already beaten the Colts. Already beaten the Cowboys. They haven't lost to any other teams. No one else can say that.

    Wait, Merrill, is that you?

    My vote would be the Patriots are the 2nd best team......................

    Our 2nd stringers that is. Who wouldn't want Jarvis Green as their starter and he's our back-up DE.
    In all seriousness who cares about 2nd place, let the Colts fans and media fight over who the new Cubs of football are, you know the "Loveable LOSERS".

    Dude, you are a troll in your own house, admit it.

    I suppose it depends on your take. 2 defensive starters already on IR, with a third to follow, yeah, you could say that it is not "fine". Add in a bunch of questionables for this week, again, you could say that it is not "fine". 17 offensive players available for the SD game, and you could say all is not "fine". But our roster, while depleted, really should have won that game the other night. They didn't, so be it. I feel confident we go 2-0, with a mini bye after the ATL game. We'll see what the roster looks like going into the Jax game.

    I still think Indy. Good O-line, pro bowl or near pro bowl WR, QB, RB; good swarming defense.

    Can they step up with the injuries, or will they take the excuse?

    Pats had an incredible number of injuries in 2004 and won a SB.
