They were doing just that until Einstein decided to try an onside kick, and Ben made that bonehead throw at the end of the first half instead of running the ball for a first down.
I doubt that a heathly Patys team would have beat the Colts. Yes the onside kick was a bad call, and Ben made a mistake and we never recovered from both of those decsions, but them blame needs to be placed on the O line. They were and have been man handled in the past couple of games. No holes= no running game. Pass protection weak at best. They need to step it up if we are going to do anything.

You mean a healthy Pats team that won the last 3 out of 4 Superbowls. Yeah, they'd have NO chance against this Colts team. Hell the 72 Dolphins, 78 Steelers, 84 49ers would all get KILLED by this Colts team. They are the BEST EVER!

As a matter of fact the Colts should just go up to Detroit and wait for the NFC playoffs to end.

Best Ever! Please! Anyone of those other teams that you mentioned would destroy the Colts. Especially a HEALTHY 78 Steelers team.

Good idea, let's talk Cincy! I honestly don't see the Steelers losing 3 in a row, and if you hold our offense to 2 tds like you did the Colts then I think you can still stay in your gameplan and run. (Not hard to do on us).

Let me throw this question out there.

When the Bengals used to be eliminated (by week 8) from any playoff hopes I would be cheering on the Steelers in the playoffs, just because they are from the division.

IF the Steelers ended up missing the playoffs for some strange reason and the Bengals were in, would you want the Bengals to do well or would you just cheer on whoever was playing them?

Most Steeler fans I talk to say they could do it for the Bengals, but not the Browns. What would you do personally?

personally i would root for the colts over the bengals just cause i like what the colts have done and the way they play on offense ever since they drafted m. faulk. i am a fan of the triplets. i wish they couldve prevented the pats from getting to the super bowl. i had no problem pulling for the bills when they went to 4 in a row. i also had no problem pulling for the browns to beat the broncos. i could pull for the bengals (i did twice against the 49ers in the sb) never could i pull for the ravens though even against an nfc team. cant pull for the pats, broncos or raiders either so other than that if the bengals make it this year they will be who i want to win. (especially if they played the cowboys)

With the exception of the Patriots game I'm putting the Jags, Ravens and Colts losses squarely on Cowher.
I'll let my sig do the talking.

Tommy was the blame in the Jags game. And maybe in the Ratbird game.

Ben looked a little gimpy last night, and he really didn`t have the time to go downfield. Our wideouts don`t seem to get open either.

Play calling was a little off, but exucution was terrible. And penalties WOW

Maybe its just me, but the Colts didn`t seem like an unbeatable team last night.
I wouldnt be afraid to play them again in the playoffs. Ben needs a couple games to feel good again!
