10. When Indy comes to Foxboro, we acknowledge that you are the "Indianapolis Colts." Baltimore? Nope. "Indianapolis Football Team."

 

9. It's been almost two years since the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. We're starved for a championship!

 

8. Tom Brady will send all of you a pair of Uggs.

 

7. The Patriots need to advance so that Mayor Menino can continue to butcher names. (http://sports.yahoo....37514--nfl.html)

 

6. The Ravens advancing to the Super Bowl is a sign of the apocalypse, right there in the book of Revelations, before the four horsemen and after the plague of locusts.

 

5. No one wants to see another Gisele rant... right?

 

4. We're not the Chargers.

 

3. If you hate him, maybe another SB win will bring us that much closer to Belichick's retirement.

 

2. You can always root for the NFC team if they win and make it to the SB.

 

And the #1 reason...

 

1. Peyton would have wanted it that way!

 

 

 

I'm probably offline until after the weekend, so... enjoy the games everyone. Peace and prosperity to you and yours!

Number 5 and 4 might have swayed me a little bit


When Bob Sanders executes a push up, he does not push himself up. He pushes the world down.
When Bob Sanders was 12, a cobra bit him in the leg. After 4 days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
Tom Brady can throw a football pretty far. Bob Sanders can throw Tom Brady even farther.

The #2 option sounds fine and it did work the last 2 times but why wait for another 2 weeks?

#4 is the only one I think I can agree with, but #8 kind of makes me want them to lose more. :)

That sounds like something Belichek would do to the Raven's locker room before the game in order to gain an advantage.

I respect the Patriots, I take nothing away from them, they are an excellent team, but I don't like them. They are like the end boss in a video game to me!

I actually will be rooting for NE if the Falcons win, because I know they are the one AFC team that would totally destroy them.

Peyton called me and said he did NOT want it that way.  And he said if you guys win, he and Papa John are taking back all of their 2 million pizzas.

"8. Tom Brady will send all of you a pair of Uggs."

 

When someone sends me free stuff, I kinda like that. Plus, everybody tells me they are expensive shoes & extremely comfortable. Sure, I'm more than happy to take my new shoes out for a test drive. Size 9 and a half Tom thanks man!  haha

Everytime I see a supermodel strut her stuff on the cat walk, I start rooting for the ground. Thud...Sick & twisted I know, but still hilarious IMO. :funny: :spit:

Bill Belichick never gets enough credit for his incredible work in Cleveland. He would have delivered a Championship to the Browns dog pound too. Jim Brown knows it, all of Patriots Nation knows it, I know it, & Art Modell should have known better...Sigh....

6. The Ravens advancing to the Super Bowl is a sign of the apocalypse, right there in the book of Revelations, before the four horsemen and after the plague of locusts.

 

Locust: "A multitude of grasshoppers that swarm & devour vegetation & crops in a warm climate or region." Kind of like what running backs Woodhead & Ridley will do to wear out the Ravens defense in the 4th Qtr.

 

Grasshoppers are associated with an ancient insect symbol of the Far East & the Orient to symbolize wisdom & intellectual knowledge. Similar to Bill Belichick's brilliant defensive mind & a Russian Chess master of strategy.

"1. Peyton would have wanted it that way!" Cute, yes I have a sense of humor.  :funny:  lmao

 

I've been really critical of Peyton Manning lately. Chalk it up to tough love, but I don't kick Yoda when he is down...Like in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, Yoda is merely retreating, regrouping for next season. [Yes, SW1 is a huge Star Wars nerd. I will admit ithaha ] Peyton needs to get more aggressive & develop a pitbull fight mentality. Put your foes down in the post season #18.

"4. We're not the Chargers." 

 

No, you're not San Diego Super Chargers. Thank God for that. Phillip Rivers is an elite QB, but his attitude/trash talking rubs me the wrong way.

"2. You can always root for the NFC team if they win and make it to the SB."

 

This one is tough for me because I like both Tony Gonsalez & Randy Moss. My money is on the Patriots to win it all, but if an NFC team does pull it off I want the Randy Moss to win a ring.

When it comes to hockey, I'm dumber than a post or the puck used to play the game. Besides, their union just recently came off a strike & went back to work. Be patient GoPats...Just Kidding man!!!

Bill Belichick will never retire..Cryogenic freezing anyone? That kind of brain you put on ice or is that on the rocks?  haha  :funny:  :lol:

Reason number 12.....Stop the water bottle abuse! If Tom loses, another poor defenseless water bottle gets smashed to the ground, ending its sad...unprotected life. ;)


"Anyone a die harder fan? I will be there believing to the end. Who is with me?" Thread started by Steveeoaktree33 at 2:49 PM of the day the Colts executed the second largest comeback in NFL playoff history. Very few concurred.

#'s 8, 5 and 3 made me laugh out loud. As a Pats fan though I must say wouldn't the biggest reason you want the Pats to win is because the Ravens beat you? I know that would fuel me.

 

Can I also just say this too. The Colts are unbelievably more likeable with Andrew Luck and Pagano. I found myself voting for them all season except when they played the Pats of course. The Green Bay game and the second Houston game were the best regular season games of the year in my opinion. Also, do you guys think the Colts can overtake Houston next year for the division?

Harbaugh called and was wondering if he regretted not going to S.F. yet.
