Default OVER RATED *clap clap clap clap clap*

Yes, I'm going out on a limb here. Indianapolis will not get past the AFC Championship Game. I guarantee it. They will fall to Pittsburgh, New England, Cincinnati, or Denver.

I dont think discounting 1 option from a total of 6 is really going out on a limb.

If i put aside bias I would have the Bronco's as the best team in the AFC with the Colts just behind that.

6 weeks ago I probably would have told you the colts were not gonna lose more than 1 at the rate they were going and that even though I didnt think they'd go undefeated they'd probably steam roll thru the playoffs..

but since the chargers exposed them and even the fact that when we played them, we held their offense to only 2 TD's and had we had any type of offense that day we maybe could have won.. but who knows.

I don`t see Cinci winning one game! Other than that, I do agree that Indy is over rated! I still haven`t seen Denver at all his year. The pats have the experience! And we have the BUS! Whta better reason to motivate your team, than to want to win one for Da Bus?

I can totally recognize the fact that the Pats have had the Colts numbers in the big game in recent years.

I can also recognize the fact that the Pats have also has the Steelers number.

Im trying to remain unbiased and look at the playoffs in terms of tangibles such as strength of record and quality of performance.

All the Colts and Steelers fans have been saying all year is - the run must end (maybe even you said this) regarding the hold the Patriots currently have over both of the above teams - it stands to reason that the Broncos can also end that run of results.

all the pats fans have been saying (maybe even you said this) that the colts couldnt possibly beat the pats because of past failures. why wouldnt the same hold true for denver vs. colts? or does it not work both ways? how convinient. heres some intangibles: peyton actually has big game experience and the colts pretty much handled the patriots (with brady, bilicheck, vinatieri and the best big game clutch defense in the league). indy has a better qb than denver and a better rb, and i think there defens is ranked higher... dont mean a indy victory is inevitable but i do think denver is beatable (even by the steelers)

Thats a nice try Tony.

But im afraid im not going to let you simply copy/paste my own argument back at me with the names of the teams altered.

Steeler fans have been saying all season that the Patriots domination of them 'has to end sometime', that these things 'work in cycles'.

Now - if that holds true then it reasonable to assume that the Broncos (who match up well against the Colts on paper) should be very capable of beating their nemesis - the Colts.

If, however you disagree with this - then you are basically saying that the Steelers will not be able to get over the hump against the Patriots either.

You cant have your cake and eat it Tony - either psychological domination is an ongoing factor or its not.

Oh, and I know you really dont believe that the Pats D that the Colts faced in the regular season will bear any real resembelence to the one they may/ may not meet in the playoffs.

Sorry to ruin the party, but that Monday night game was perfect weather. No snow, wasn't very cold. I still don't think Peyton can beat the Pats in our weather. and we won't find that out this season either.

I believe the patriots would have the best shot at the colts. To beat the colts, you have to have a good defense, a great quarterback, and a good offensive line. First off, you have to contain the colts with your defense because no one can really stop them...that requires a good defense such as the defense of the pats. Next, you need to expose the colts' biggest weakness, their secondary, and throw the ball downfield...to do this, you need an elite quarterback such as Tom Brady and a good offensive line that can slow down the colts' pass rush enough so that the quarterback can find open receivers.

I think the bengals have the offense to do it and the steelers have the defense to do it, but the patriots are the closest to having both.
