Re: Dwight Freeney, star defensive end for the Indianapolis Colts, may miss Super Bowl XLIV with serious ankle injury

Here's a legitimate question about the topic of this thread. Why was Freeney still in that game against the Jets anyway? The Colts were up 30-17, with 2 minutes left in the game, and they still have their BEST pass rusher playing in the game? What's the deal with that?

The Colts were able to shut down the Cardinals earlier this season that have a very good passing attack and did so on their home field playing on a short week. I think Brees will have a good day and will put up around 28pts, the question is can the Saints keep the Colts under 28 points?

In the POs, the Colts played Flacco who had a typical sophomoric year. He definitely can't be compared to Brees. Mark Sanchez who for a rook didn't do bad either, but everyone knew he wasn't going to win the game for them. Their best running back got hurt, he was shredding the Colts D. I watched the Pats beating the Colts all game long and the Pats D was suspect then. Freeney is definitely a difference maker. His loss will be felt, that's just undeniable. Reggie Bush is definitely better than Addai and Brown, well, not there yet. It should be an aerial display of epic proportions, though, that's for sure.

I agree 100%, but most other Colt fans believe that in the playoffs the game is never "over" but I don't agree and believe at that point he and some others should have been on the sideline.

How many of the vikings fumbles were caused by hard hits or good tackles and how many were caused by a RB known for fumbling or a bad handoff?

So I assume you feel the same way about the patriots/colts game? Clearly indy didn't beat the pats. Give up the "if" game dude. We WON!

Most were caused by hits or strips, it's what out D does. Go back and rewatch the game if you like. I have already. Same with interceptions, defensive pressure cause those mistakes as well. You're being delusional if you think otherwise

Yes most were, but not all. Also the Saints didn't cause the Vikings to have to many guys in the huddle, that was their own stupidity. No penalty at the end of the game, odds are the Vikings don't pass down there but go with another run to set up a field goal attempt.

When a team can make you nervous enough that you fumble or drop the ball, hurry you enough that you mishandle it, and keep you flusterated throughout the game, so much so that you do stupid things like have too many men on the field...I think that speaks for itself.

Nevermind Joanie, he is a Vikings fan. He hardly mentions the Colts, in any of his posts, or arguments. Posing as a Colts fan, to annoy us.
