I even sat through the absolute thrashing we took from New Orleans last year when Brees was throwing 62 points up on us and Shawn Payton was in the booth eating a hotdog.

Not today. I can't stomach watching the Pats crush us like this.

At least Pat McAfee can tackle.

That's all I got right now. I'm so bummed!! :(

We looked so great in the first quarter too!!!

That tackle wasn't a tackle. It was a body slam.

We were stomped pretty good - no doubt.

But just think; before this year began not many would have thought this game would have meant anything. The reality is that this showed this team how much more they have to improve.

I think it's a wake up call for them and i'm glad it came now when they still have time to recover and have meaningful games left to play. If this had been played later in the year and eliminated them from the playoffs i would be worried about next year. As it is I'm looking forward ro seeing if they can bounce back agaist Buffalo.

We're not out of it yet! Coaching staff has a lot of work to do. Let's put this one behind us!

Yeah, this is a pretty humiliating and embarassing day to be a Colts fan. The Patriots are a tier 1 team and the Colts just aren't. Hopefully in 4-6 years that will change though, Luck and this team will get better and the Colts will once again be able to legitimately say they are as good as the Patriots. Until that point it's fun to see that Manning hasn't lost any stride and to be a Broncos fan.

Fun game; I was a bit annoyed in the first quarter, but the Patriots dominated from the 2nd quarter on. Luck looked good, but he made some atrocious throws mixed in with his solid throws.

Colts' defense did an excellent job of shutting down the run for the most part.

Interesting, of course, that the Patriots' ST far outplayed the Colts' ST.

I'm trolling by calling Brady the GOAT? It's just an opinion.

No, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. Obviously Brady is a good quarterback, just all your other responses are just unnecessary. You're going into a teams forums who your team just trounced, what kind of response do you think you're going to get? I'll give you a hint, not warm fuzzy ones. But I'm sure you knew that already. Regardless, pats played a great, complete game today on all sides of the ball. Congrats.

don't forget the 1st couple series is a "feeling out" time for most teams, although BB does adjust quicker. Once they went to the blitz is was lights out.

I was amazed at how bad our ST's played today. The first pick was justa bad decision. Luck is smart and adjusted...but then just made a bad throw on the next one. That was as much a rookie play i've seen out of him yet.

Kudos to the Pats for a sound thumping. I'm still proud to be a Colts fan, and am excited about where this team is headed.

I've gotta say, Brady looks even quicker in his decision making and quicker in his release than I've seen in past years. I think turnovers and ST play are where the Pats won today, but Brady is a machine.

I still can't stand the Pats, or their obnoxious fans who feel they have some kind of reason to gloat, but that was as thorough a thrashing of the Colts as I hope to see for a long time.

I noticed that too. I even said "Oh crap" out loud.

I hate to interrupt the trolling/smack talk feast too here.

Yeah the kids a player. But, you guys sure gave him a welcome back to reality check tonight. Good Lord. I know he messed up at times but I even felt bad for him near the end. It just wasn't gonna happen. He tried though.

Only thing is I'm not sure I like his face. Maybe its the haircut:)

Plus a little thrashing by an elite team is good for him. As in thrown into the lions den.

Well they all shaved their heads last week for Pagano. I think Luck is in the strange "growing it out" now phase. I think he grows hair fast too, everywhere.

I think he looks awesome in his uniform. Great helmet face too.

This thread is all over the place.....

Well genius, that's probably because it is not possible for the Patriots to meet the Colts in the SB. *doh*

Nope, but last time they met in the big game AFCCG Manning and the Colts won.

And since then Brady has been outdone by another Manning, several times. Deal with it.

    • I was just reinforcing what you were saying.   Here's what people don't get about stats.  They are a simply just a mathematical computation of values.  And that's a huge weakness.  Formulas require consistency in the values.  Yards.  Number of Carries.  Interceptions.  Down and Distance, etc.   In the NFL, each one of those situations is unique from team to team, even situation to situation.  Its called idiosyncrasies.  Mathematical formulas hate idiosyncrasies....but the NFL is hardly anything else but a collection of idiosyncrasies.   So what happens is, and this is with stats in all fields not just sports, is that the data must be stripped down to its most basic components in order to be loaded into the formulas, or algorithms.  (Complex algorithms are rare, but they are able to process many different idiosyncrasies.  Facebook etc. has complex algorithms).   When looking at interception stats, we try to gauge the QBs decision making.  He gets diminished when he makes a good decision and a good throw but the WR lets the ball hit off of his facemask for a pick.  He gets elevated when he makes poor decisions and throws passes right at DBs who doesn't catch them.  The passes get processed as mere incompletions.   That's why watching tape is more important than stats.  For example, if you were to rate Wentz performance against SF, he might stat-wise rate out to over 100.  But if you included the terrible decisions he made in the first half (where Collinsworth pointed out he might have had 3 or 4 picks), he probably should have rated no higher than a 30.   But, since the math can't process the idiosyncrasy of a bad play by the DB from another type of incomplete pass, the math is processing very very simple data points and the stat becomes very basic information....not sophisticated at all.
    • I agree this is a pivotal game   If we dont win THIS game, TENN has the division .... we are too far back   There are some good teams vying for the Wild Card.     One week at a time
    • With Mich State and Michigan playing and Penn State and Ohio State and Iowa and Wisc., the Big Ten will be beating each other up this week.
