I agree! I would rather see the Colts or Chargers win. I hate the Ratbirds and the Patsies!

Manning already collapsed. The sorry KC offense couldn't capitalize on his mistakes though.

I think it was the turnovers that killed us, we gave away most of the games we lost !!

As for discipline... a disciplined team does NOT turnover the ball as often as we did !!

A very positive note to a not-so-positive season.

Though I am no fan of Peytoon or the Colts (though I have a tremendous amount of respect for Tony Dungy), I can't agree that the Colts don't deserve to be in the playoffs or that Peytoon isn't a playoff-calibre QB. In 2006 alone, almost 4,400 yards, a 31/9 TD/INT ratio and a 101.0 QBR (lifetime 94.0). I gotta call it as I see it. Though the Colts are in a pretty weak division, a 12-4 record isn't anything to be ashamed of. They are 8-0 at home this season and 4-4 on the road, which is a fairly good indicator that they have a bit of trouble playing outside of their protective dome and that weather elements do indeed play a part. To their credit, though, they did win in enemy territory against the Pats, Jets, Broncs and Giants earlier in the season but seem to have hit a skid in the latter part, losing 3 out of their last 5 to divisional opponents. If the Rats' D is on their game this weekend, both Peytoon and their running attack are going to have problems. The Colts will also be playing out of their dome and I think the Rats' home field advantage only tips the pendulum in their favor even more. Admittedly, however, I am sick of hearing the love-fest the sports media has with Peytoon and this week in particular, we get a double dose of of nausea with the Ray Ray hiney-kissing. Though I am not overly impressed with the Rats' consistency relating to their O, I believe the Rats' D will be the difference in this game and give Peytoon a reason to

Doesn't really matter to me who wins this one - the winner will lose in San Diego next week, imho.

I hope they kick the shit out of the Ratbirds, then lose to the Pats.

Peyton's is more of a whine. It is easy for me to choose the Ravens this weekend, especially living in Indy. I lived just outside Baltimore when the Colts left and when Baltimore got a new team the players who played for the Baltimore Colts stayed with the NFL team in Baltimore, the Ravens. Baltimore is a good football town and Indy is not. The fans here know so little of football it hurts.

Here's the part I hate because the Colts are in the playoffs~Indianapolis was the only team in the NFL to allow all 16 of its opponents to rush for at least 100 yards!!

Great Job Steelers Defense!!

there is a difference between allowing a 100 yard rusher and allowing a team to rush for 100 yards. i haven't checked, but i believe the steelers have allowed at least 10 teams this past season run for over 100 yards in game.

I know there is a difference, but to allow a single rusher to rush for more than 100 yards is pretty pathetic on the Colt's part!! It's better to allow a team to rush for 100 yards because it's not only one player!!

Really? The Steelers ranked 10th in rushing offense, 9th in passing offense, and 7th in overall offense.

The offense definitely wasn't the problem (Ben being the exception, he sucked!), too many turnovers and a poor pass defense were just some of the issues that plagued the Steelers.
