@Platinum @Questions Authority Apples and oranges. Did we get pounded? Absolutely. Do we need to get better? Ditto. A zillion posts can and will debate and discuss that endlessly. That is not what I was referring to. Call me old fashioned, but I believe the Patriots longstanding dominance has come at the expense of something far more important than wins and losses. It's called sportsmanship. If you reverse the situation entirely, the Colts up by 31 and going for it on 4th down, I would call them out for it too.

Up by 31 in the 4th quarter and driving, the Pats go for it on a 4th down. Proving once again that they are the most classless team in the NFL. Hope someone else pounds them when they're down.
Is it too much to hope that if the Colts handle the Patriots (a.k.a. the Stealers) like they did the Broncos, the media will start speculating about how it's Brady's turn to consider retiring?

I'm with you on this one, Nate.

After the punishment Collie has taken, I believe -- though he apparently doesn't, and it's his prerogative certainly -- he's damaged goods. I hope he retires. But if not, he won't go to the Pats. Remember, they signed both Gonzalez and Addai, no strangers to injury them, last year and each was gone after a cup of coffee. Far more worrisome would be Freeney. That would be just too cruel. Perish the thought.

@MarcusDugan @Sinn0331 Good point about attracting free agents. I think that a lot of veterans would love to join the monster that Grigson/Pagano have created. And let's face it the Colts have lots of holes to fill.

In the Manning era I was always frustrated when the Colts spent top draft choices on offense instead of their woefully deficient defense. Now I'm on the other side -- the defense still is a mess, but their #1 priority must be upgrading that porous O-line. Luck is obviously a strong kid but how much more punishment can he take? Get this guy some more protection, pronto! Draft or free agents, bring 'em on.
Let's be honest here. The Ravens are never going to win a Super Bowl with Joe Flacco as their starting QB. That said, he occasionally can put together a decent game. I hope this Sunday isn't one of them, though as we all know the Colts d isn't exactly elite. Containing Rice + forcing Flacco to take to the air = Colts win.

@MarcusDugan After Caldwell was so badly outcoached in the Super Bowl loss to New Orleans, I realized that the Colts would never go all the way with him at the helm. His ultra-conservative (and even that's being kind) play calling used to infuriate me. So as painful as last year was it was worth it to have Caldwell gone.

Win or lose, one of the best things about playing the Ravens is that Chuck Pagano will be on the Colts sidelines and Jim Caldwell will be on the Ravens sidelines.
