    Colts win over us continues to make headlines- will they make it to the Super Bowl..?

    I know I may be steering real close to off topic here, but since we just lost to the Colts, I can't tell you how many times today I saw the Colts victory win over us and their head coaches inspirational speech.

    So, could this be another prelude to a Colts Super Bowl win, because this has become another touchy feel good story similar to the Patriots winning the Super Bowl right after the September 11, 2001 attacks, and then the Saint's winning the Super Bowl following the back-drop of Hurricane Katrina.

    I don't know how most of you feel, and I don't want to be insensitive to Coach Chuck" Pagano, but why does a team use a personal life tragedy to inspire a football team and make it public for everyone to see, when its such a private and personal issue for a persons life and the team?

    I know its a tragic story, and I wish Coach Chuck Pagano well, but lets put things in perspective, but, I feel uncomfortable when someone tries to use something which I feel is personal, to promote and motivate a football team.

    I know Joe Philbin recently lost his son Michael earlier in the year due to tragic drowning accident, and he was 21, a kid and don't believe this tragedy was ever used to motivate a team.

    So am I wrong to feel the Colts used a personal health tragedy, which I believe should be kept private, but felt it was used as marketing ploy to motivate a football team and compare life and winning to a football game...?

    If I am wrong correct me, but it will be interesting to see just how far the Colts will go, but I felt the speech should have been kept private and not recorded and only for the players and coaches in that locker room to hear.

    Haha. No. They aren't that good. Maybe a playoff win if they play like yesterday but they won't sniff the Super Bowl.

    i have personally avoided ALL sports related things today, this lost sickens me because of how bad our defense played & the fact that if the fins won we would be in prime playoff spotting right now. I will avoid sports the rest of this week.

    A playoff team won't let the Colts put up 516 yards of total offense. Houston will roll them.

    I'm right there with you brother.

    This next game will decide what we're made of.

    We should have easily won this game, but oh well.

    Lets use it as motivation to build character.

    Huh? Hell no. Texans will win their division easily and then take out all the AFC teams.

    I would put the Pats/Steelers/Ravens and Broncos ahead of the Colts as well.

    They can't win on the road, so no.

    Correct...and lets not forget, the Colts still have to play Houston twice. We're still very much in this thing. A lot of football still to be played...
