    Once again, the arogance of Coach Belichik costs him another one against the Colts. What a game, and loved screaming out into the night after this one! Manning is just amazing. I have never liked Brady, but last night he DID give credit to our team at the postgame, so, maybe he's not as arogant as I thought. Not like his Sith Lord of a coach, Belichik. Go Colts, keep scoring, keep driving, and don't look back til it's ALL over.

    I don't think it was that bad a decision. Go for the 1st down and seal the game or punt and give the ball to Manning with 2+ minutes left. Punting means he has to go maybe 40 yards further on the drive and also gives them a chance for a run back. How many 80 yard 2 minute drives has Manning led over the years? Gutsy call, but not as bad as a lot of people think, in my opinion.

    I agree with jhoward. I suspect Belly has major respect/fear of giving the ball to Manning and maybe, he did not trust his defense!? Tom Rhoads

    Manning got inside Belicheat's head BIG TIME. Belicheat is thinking, "If I give him the ball with 2:00 left, I KNOW he's going to pick my tired defense to shreds."


    Belicheat made the right call in trying to ice the game - his offense just couldn't deliver.

    Sweet enough to make up for paying that extra 1 or 2 percent sales tax on food, beverages, and what is it room tax,car rental tax, so that miserable pos Irsay could have his new stadium??

    What is the sales tax on dining in Naptown now? Did they even pay off the old "Hoosier Dome" before imploding it. I will say Irsay is slick though, he got Marion county to pay for his first stadium, and now I understand he conned the surrounding counties into footing the bill for the 2nd. Who will pay for the 3rd?

    9% food and bev sales tax now downtown. And no, the Hoosier Dome was not paid off. No wonder our city/county/state accountability on revenue and spending is all screwed up.
