Pats Smack Colts Without Cheating

Mon Nov 05, 2007 12:40 am

And, in fact, there were a few calls early on that sucked. But the Pats made good. Now, if we have to play the Dolts in the playoffs, more than likely, it'll be in Foxborough, at 10 degrees F, and Peyton will be frozen in time, and will be confused, frigid, and frigged.

Agreed. I was suprised how the game turned into a bit of a defensive battle... these definitely are not the colts of last year's regular season! Two great teams playing evenly, should be a fun game in the playoffs when they meet again!

Yep, leave it to Pats fans to try to make it out more than it is. Note to Pats fans: Manning has nothing else to prove. If he gets another SB ring...great. If he doesn't...he won't be crying about it.

"Without cheating"? It sounds like you say that as though that's opposed to something more expected from them.

I don't care for Boston teams nowadays, but they're still undefeated. But it's also only the 1/2 way point for them. The only thing that could stop them currently is Bridget Moynihan getting some sort of lovers revenge on Brady.

Quoting MSYtristar (Reply 2):

He is. And, hopefully, he'll pipe down later (though, that's only preferential - Boston teams have earned their success, but I don't much care for them, currently). If he doesn't, though, and they lose, I'm sure someone can kindly post a link to this thread.

It may not be a "smack" in the sense of a blowout, but they clearly pulled out a stunner, when, I think, they really had no right to win that game. They were outplayed, and still won.

It was a super game, no doubt about it. The key was that on two occasions, the Colts got deep into New England territory, and came away only with field goals, instead of 7. That's the ballgame, right there.

I enjoyed the game and had a good time watching it a friend's place. I didn't care either way who won, but he is a huge Pats fan, and was in a good mood when I left. A pretty good chance that we saw the first meeting of the AFC Championship Game tonight though.

OUCH!

They didn't cover the spread so a smacking is pretty much out of it, the game was good but what Indy did prove is that the pats are human and I am glad the refs called Moss on Offensive Pass Interference. From seeing the NFL today they said that the refs working today have called that the most and showed clips where it he was pushing off against Wasington and Miami. I hope the Hoodie gave him a talking to about that.

Maybe it wasn't a "smack down" but it certainly was a smack in the face to the Colts.

Like Gene Wojciechowski said in today's article, "If the Patriots can win 24-20 at Indianapolis ... in the Permanent Hearing Loss Dome ... against Peyton Manning ... then nobody will beat them this season. If they can commit a franchise-record 10 penalties for 146 yards ... give up 112 rushing yards to Joseph Addai ... trail at the end of the first, second and third quarters and late into the fourth ... and still win, then nobody will beat them this season."

Who the hell is going to beat them?

Nov. 18 at Bills 4-4
Nov. 25 Eagles 3-5
Dec. 3 at Ravens *4-3
Dec. 9 Steelers *5-2
Dec. 16 Jets 1-8
Dec. 23 Dolphins 0-8
Dec. 29 at Giants 6-2

The only respectable team on there is the Steelers. Don't give me this crap about the Giants - their performance against the Fish was horrible, and when you put Eli against the Pat's D... he's toast. 7 games left, and only 3 of them are on the road.

Although it was not a blowout, none of the calls went the Pats way and they were on the road. Still, they win. While I am pessimistic about an undefeated season (remember the backup Quarterback against the Dolphins?), I don't realistically see a team beating them. Especially if they have home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Just a little rant here-Why all the pass interference calls? And how come no calls against the Colts? IMHO, all three pass interference calls (2 defense and 1 offense) were bullshit. Then they don't call the blatant hold on the Addai screen pass? Gave me a little scare as a Pats fan.

However, all that does is show how the Pats are the best team in the league. Give up 150 yards against Peyton Manning, no other team even gets close to winning. Also, the two defensive stops inside their own 10 yard line. Pats were better, plain and simple. Then couldn't stop the run in the first half though...

I think this score will be very similar to the Colts Pats game yesterday, but the Steelers have a much more balanced team and are far more physical than the Colts. I still think the Pats have a slight edge, but the Steelers will be bringing their A game on the 9th! They are very close to one another on all sides of the ball... Except we have a known running game instead of this "fly-by-night" rush attack New England has... I expect Parker to have almost 900 yards after tonight.

The Pats were the better team that night. They made more plays when it counted, you are right. But there is not a lot of seperation in the strength of the teams. The Colts dominated most of the game without one of their key offensive players. Not a bad effort at all.

The only respectable team on there is the Steelers. Don't give me this crap about the Giants - their performance against the Fish was horrible, and when you put Eli against the Pat's D... he's toast. 7 games left, and only 3 of them are on the road.

Eh, their performace against the fish was awful, but A LOT of that can be chalked up to the weather and God-awful field conditions at Wembly that day. How they (Giants) play next week against Dallas will say a lot about whether or not the Giants are a team to be taken seriously this season.

Will they beat the Pats in Week 17? Well, a lot of factors will have to be taken into consideration. Will the Pats still be trying to go for an undefeated season? Will either team still be fighting for a playoff spot or a first round bye? Will either team be resting their starters for the post-season if everything is already wrapped up?

(Yes, I know I'm biased as a Giants fan).

My guess is the only way the Giants beat the Patriots is if the Pats rest their starters, and the Giants are on the cusp of getting into the playoffs.

the Giants are better than they were last year, but they simply aren't in the Patriots class.

Right now only the Colts and Cowboys are at that level. Maybe the Packers and Steelers as well. The rest of the league is playing a different game right now.

I have a theory...that both you and FXramper were two of the incompetent officials that were on that field with a strong bias against NE.

There was some ridiculous calls made against the Pats...both of the defensive PI calls led to scoring drives for the Colts, both were bogus and one was 50+ yards. The Colts got at least 10 free points in that game, y'all are just lucky the Patriots ended up winning, or you would not here the end of it from me.

Also, for you idiots out there who won't let the "cheating" thing go...I don't care about you, the Patriots sure as hell don't give a shit about you, and you are not getting in the way of the fourth ring they will have in a few months... You are just an annoyance and are using it as an excuse as to why they completely embarrassed which ever team you are a fan of.

I think after tonight's shallacking the Steelers put on Baltimore, they belong in the same class as the Colts and Pats... Then again, Baltimore's offense is non-existant this year...

BOTH teams made that obvious!!

So what? You know how many bad calls are made on every given game? Quite a few usually. I wish they would get rid of half the stupid penalties out there and let the players play.

Just because I don't like the Pats and never did doesn't mean I would make questionable calls against them.

Ask any fan of a team not in a dome. Heck, as a Bears fan, I'd respect and bet on Favre any day in an outdoor winter game over Manning. Period. Football is an outdoor sport. Something these little rednecks in Indiana need to realize. Psssshhhhhhht, basketball states with football teams.

How many other QB's could go out there and beat the Pats at Foxboro during a snowstorm? For a QB with a dome home stadium, I would dare say Manning has not done too bad for himself. I would probably bet on Favre over Manning too in a dead-of-winter game. I just look at the big picture, and when all is said and done, if Manning never wins at Foxboro in January, that won't do anything to his legacy. But, once a critic always a critic.

Manning did not have a stellar game, he had his first fumble at home in about 2 years. He also didn't have Harrison to throw to. I'm disappointed the Colts lost but I know that when the time comes he can and will bounce back.

Oh well. Still upset about the Super Bowl last year I suppose. In any case, the Colts will be out of the RCA Dome next year.

First of all I wouldnt say "Smack" but whatever.....

I liked Indy in that game. I think they have a better defense than NE. The Colts had plenty of opportunities to win that game. Dropped pass by Reggie Wayne. Nearly picked off interception that the Safety couldn't hang on to. Also, Marvin Harrison was out.

I have to hand it to Tom Brady to drive the team down the field being down 20-10 and scoring and then the defense holding the Colts and then Bradys final drive. The Pats did a good job of containing Dallas Clark. Great football game overall. Both teams did a good job getting at the QB.

Look for NE to possibly lose to Buffalo off of the bye week. The Bills are playing tough this year. Look what they almost did against Dallas. With Marshawn Lynch running the ball and a good defense the Pats need to be prepared.
