yeah, the only problem is you don't have cloose to the offensive weapons that Dallas did that year...could well have been on auto pilot... not to mention that it was Haley who designed the passing plays and was in charge of the receivers. Sparano was so good that he was bumped by Jason Garrett after that one job-sharing year. Right! Oh, remember when I said that Ozzie Newsome knew what he was doing and that Harbaugh (hell pick either one) was better than Rex? Yes? Still saying it. But I do grant you that as flawed as Rex is, he was a better HC than Tony. But since we're playing that game, still saying you wouldn't trade Sanchez for Ryan, Rivers, EManning, Schaub or even for 2 first round picks? (just to put your grasp of reality into perspective.)

Likewise, when it counted the colts outscored the mighty jest defense 24-0 in the last 31 minutes.. but breaking that down to address your spin: when the starters, not Curtis Painter and his band of merry ****ups, was in in the last quarter and a half, they outscored the jest 17-0 when they were actually trying. So much for that nonesense of a)"even though we were a 7-7 team losing 6 out of 7 and chokinhg against a 6-7 Atlanta team we needed to beat at home, we still earned our way into the playoffs" and b)"we were a quarter and a half away from being in the SB." So much for that delusion!
The only difference in 09 between our two 7-7 09 teams was that "there but for the scheduling go the Fins."
