    The spread on Sportsbook.com this morning has the Jets +7.5... O/U +39.5.. I think this game could be really close, or a blow-out. What do you think? Wayne

    Jets only beat SD because SD's FG kicker went cold as a fish. He missed 9 points in Field Goals and the Jets margin of victory was only 3 points.

    I hate the colts and Manning! But you have to give the guy credit he knows how to win a game. I think the Jets have a good chance of winning the game if they mix up their defensive scheme and keep him guessing. We'll see if the head coach of the Jets knows what he is doing. If he does then he'll come out with some messed up blitzing packages that will have Peyton scrambling all day. A lot of teams have discoverd the way to shut down the Colts offense let's see if the Jets can.

    "A lot of teams". Last I checked the Colts were still 14-2 this season. You can choose to not like Manning but you have to respect his skills.

    Sorry K-gun! I do not think anyone can totally shut down Manning! He will outscore the Jets although I am concerned about the Jets running game as the Colts do not defend the run very well! Tom Rhoads

    The Colts don't have any running offense, so the defense can't practice against it. Scary . Wayne

    I am not worried about the Colt's offense, worse case scenario, the colt's don't score the first quarter, they make adjustments and end up scoring 31 points. I am concerned with the defense although after last weeks performance, the Jets may be in for a tougher time than 3 weeks or so ago....

    The Colts will win by 14 points if they win by 1. 7.5 points isn't nearly enough.

    The Jets have been running on emotion for the last 4 weeks and they are all used up. The Colts have been resting for the last 3 out of 4 weeks.

    Love him or hate him, Peyton is the finest quarterback the game has ever seen. Enjoy him while you can because he's got about 5 more good years left in him.

    The only reason why I have an interest in the game is because of a bet I have with one of my customers.

    Rich, in the Fort Wayne area you can root for who ever want to except in baseball. You have to be a Cubs fan. No exceptions. There are lots Bears, Lions, and Bengals fans. The real heated arguments come from IU and Purdue basketball, but at this point...who cares, and nobody really cares about college football except the die-hard Notre Dame fans. But don't say anything bad about the Cubbies around here. Wayne

    OGC,

    No, you don't have to become a Colts fan. I, like you, came here from OH and am not caught up in "the fever" either. It's just a big-ass money-making franchise for a solitary, liberal-leaning team owner. The franchise makes a ton of money on merchandise. Around here all the chicks wear their pink Manning jerseys to the office on Fridays, because the QB's a handsome, white, biscuit-eatin' country boy...if the QB was a big ugly black dude with corn-rows and gold teeth, merch. sales would be cut by at least a third.

    At the symphony last night there were two kids wearing Jets jerseys, if you can believe it. There were a lot of smirks, but they were still allowed in and nobody stuck a shiv in their back or anything (and Hilbert Theater doesn't even have metal detectors!). Overall, you'll find us a pretty accommodating bunch (as long as you're not a Union member or Obama voter).

    In the Hoosier State, we believe in liberty and thinking for yourself. I don't own a single piece of Colts merchandise and have not the slightest intention of getting any. If you join me in that, there will officially be TWO of us, lol!

    Welcome to Indiana.

    Uh-oh, There is no way I'm going to give up being a Phillies fan. Looks like that might be strike 3. Anyhow, the Jets seem to be giving them Colts a run for their money. GO JETS!!!

    30-17 Colts!!! Manning sliced up that Jet's defense. They are in trouble if they play New Orleans though.

    Damn, I was off by 1 point. They won by 13 instead of 14.

    The upside to the Colts beating the Jets, I'll have a signed business agreement for a large sum of money in the mornin'. Yehaw!
