Indy was good against the pass that year but would've been manhandled by a much bigger SD Offensive Line. LT (in his prime), Michael Turner, Darren Sproles....a bad matchup for the Colts.
What does that matter? LT ran all over the Pats in the first half of that divisional game, but Marty inexplicably took the ball out of his hands for pretty much the entire second half, and for lack of a better explanation, to apparently try and dispel the "Martyball" image. The only irony here is that Martyball would have won that game for the Chargers had they stuck to it for the entire game. Who's to say had SD won that game by taking it out of LT's hands in the second half the way they did that they wouldn't have done the same thing against the Colts? Nice try, though. The Pats didn't "win" anything for the Colts that year.

Of course I knew that! It's common knowledge that the "Royalty of the NFL" just decided to give all the 31 other 2nd-rate teams a chance in all the other seasons during the last 5 years too. So, not only are they the bestest, most wonderfulest sports franchise (that's ALL sports, not only football) in the history of the whole wide universe, they are also the most thoughtful and altruistic!

He is not a choke artist for many reasons. It's not his fault his team lost lost last week. Look at his stats.

A choke artist is more so Tony Romo. Peyton won a SB too.

No-the reason why the Colts have struggled in the playoffs during the Peyton-era is b/c they have a POS run D. Remember-to be successful in the playoffs, you have to run the ball AND stop the run. The Colts did neither in most of their playoff losses.

And also-for some reason, the Colts O never matched up well with 3-4 D's. When they played us in the '06 season, we were without our D caption(Greg Ellis), and we still whipped their tails.

And less not forget too that Dungy isn't exactly the best playoff-prep coach. His biggest drawback is that he thinks his teams need to get as much, albeit too much REST going into the playoffs.

Not to knock on your '05 Super Bowl year, but remember Dungy rested his starters for the last TWO regular season games going into the playoffs.

Look at the Parcells coaching tree(Belichick, Coughlin, etc)-they make sure their teams play at a high intensity level at ALL times in the regular season no matter what.

Good point. Dungy's strong suit is being a teacher and motivator.

Speaking of which, wow-how did THREE bye teams **** the bed this weekend? The Steelers were the only ones that came out fresh, with lots of energy, and not to mention too the coaching staff came out with a very good game plan albeit adjustments from the reg season.

The Titans, Panthers, and Giants just didn't look physically nor mentally ready to play.
