Excuses are for losers. The Pats never make excuses. If someone wants to give Manning and Colts tissues to dry their eyes or a shoulder to cry on, why would any Pats' fans be bothered? The more they buy into the excuses, the weaker they become, the easier for the Pats to defeat them. Let them keep coming.... The Colts shoulda won, Manning is so heroic, It's OK to go down fighting with honors, and with love... Let these things get into their heads. The Pats are not excuse-makers. They are professional assassins. Only results count. They will slay the Colts and give them a nice eulogy and a great mausoleum.
