How can a quarterback that’s in his fifth season, who just signed a $102 million contract, make such dumb mistakes? Couple that with a few lucky tips into the hands of Colts receivers, and you have a game that was given away.

Take away the dumb stuff of this game and the Giants game, and they’d only have one loss.

But they made those mistakes and now have to live with them, and with a Ravens team that is now a stone’s throw away from them, and the only thing holding them back is the tiebreaker.

And we’re right in the middle of the toughest part of the schedule.  Awesome.

  • We need to get together for the game on December 14, it could be over by then anyway. Was great to be able to root for the Colts again!!

  • I don’t want to be around you on the 14th of December when the Steelers play @ Baltimore…

  • Oh man…looks like the timing of meeting you couldn’t have been better. Sorry about the Indianapolis but-whoopin’, dude. ;D


    Oh and good luck with Baltimore – now they are some dirty, nasty fans.

  • I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a butt-whoopin’, more along the lines of getting all the lucky breaks in one game. Take away that first tipped-pass touchdown, and it may be a different game. This is one of the ones that really hurts because it was so close and was given away.

    Baltimore fans aren’t the worst. I’ve been to a couple of games there and as long as you’re well behaved and good-natured, you’re generally left alone (until you’re walking out of the stadium in your gear and stuff gets thrown at you). There’s a lot of smack-talk, though, some of it pretty nasty.

    That said, I think we’re still going to take the division, even if we do lose to the Ratbirds on December 14th (we always split with them, so I wouldn’t be surprised with a loss).

Brendan joined the party on January 2, 2004. He's cool now.

Jessica has never been cool. She is OK with that.
