    Anybody watch Colts/Pats tonight? What the sam-hell was Belichick thinking?????? That has to be the bone-head call of the century. :eek:

    On Edit:

    Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth just can't get over it. Al says that call will live in infamy.

    That was the biggest bone head call I have ever seen in my life.

    It was a stupid call but I think the refs spot of the ball was wrongl. Looked like he made the first down to me. I loved it cause I wanted the Colts to win. The expression on the Pats players and Belch was priceless.

    Why not punt & make Manning drive 70 or so yards rather than the 30? Seemed like a no-brainer to me.

    Belch made a boner that will last for many, many years to come.

    This is a clear sign that coach is getting bored with his job.

    It's a clear sign that, with the way the Colts' offense was rolling in the 4th quarter, the only way the Pat's could stop them would be to keep them off the field. Whether it was 30 yards or 70, the Colts were scoring, and i believe he was right. I wonder how many coaches think the same thing, but don't have the balls to go for it. I completely understand what he was doing. That being said, there's no way in hell I would have rolled the dice like that.:D
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Crazy Uncle Johnny used to rant and rave on here about how Peyton Manning was protected by the league, refs, etc...

    I used to laugh it off until I heard last night that he's started and played in every game for the Colts since the first game of his rookie season. 11 years and counting.

    That's almost impossible. Crazy Johnny you are vindicated.

    If he'd cleanly caught the ball it would have been a bad spot. The ref and the announcers said he juggled the ball briefly before getting control.

    Brett Favre started ever game between the 4th game in 1992 through 2008
    Cal Ripken Jr. played 2632 consecutive games.

    Both streaks were a lot longer than 11 years. I think they are men who realize they're paid really well to do a job so they show up every day to do it.
