What the hell happened?
I don't know but your Meriweather avatar absolutely turns me on

So, did injuries play a role in the previous two pats/colts games? Or was it just the afc championship?
Just curious, b/c it seems to me that the better team won.
Besides, I don't recall any of the pats players complaining about the flu. And if they wouldn't use it as an excuse, why would anyone else?
Injuries are part of every game. During last season when the Colts won 27-20. These were the starters who were out, Eugene Wilson, Rodney Harrison (after the first series), Daniel Graham, Stephen Neal and special teamer Pierre Woods. Two safeties is a devestating loss to the colts.
The year before we did not have Seymour or Matt Light along with a list of backup role players.
Look, it sucks for us. I'm just talking about 2007 now because 2006 is in the history books. And all the guys we had out, Harrison, Wilson, Gay, Seau, Colvin, they're all back in September - with additional reinforcements. The Colts had few injuries to return so they are what they were.
I find it convenient that Indy had managed to take 3 in a row from NE, each time with Rodney Harrison injured, yet never beat NE WITH him in the lineup.
Sigh. Maybe Rodney can stay healthy one last year. One thing I'll say for sure . . . if the Patriots and Colts each have equivalent injuries (quality and quantity) this year, there is NO WAY the Colts beat us. And, as you said, if Rodney has just been healthy for the games last year I doubt they beat us either time last year. But again, that's in the history books - what matters now is how we've improved and they haven't.
