Indianapolis Is In Trouble

When questioned after yesterday's loss and whether the Colts are in fact capable of beating the Patriots, coach Tony Dungy stated "no question". Huh? Wrong answer. How could you not have questions? Your team has lost 4 straight to that team. You weren't any closer to beating them this year than last. You'd better have a question. You aren't going to get any better if you don't realize like the rest of the world that your team is not in New England's league. When everyone else sees this and the coach doesn't, trouble is going to ensue. Sounds like he doesn't think his team still needs to get a lot better to challenge New England. It does.

And how about Peyton Manning. Watching him yesterday, he looked a lot like Eli (see earlier posts about Eli on this blog). What I mean is, the way Eli communicates with his body language. Peyton Manning looked defeated in the second quarter yesterday. He was sitting on the sidelines with head down, slumped over. Nothing like inspiring the team to victory. You don't have to be a rah-rah type of leader, but at least look like you believe you have a chance. Maybe there is something about their makeup that makes it look like these two brothers quit when they get down. I try to like Peyton, but maybe "idiot kicker" Dork Vander Smack was right with his comments two years ago.
