That fake punt play itself was dumb but it did not affect the Colts season in reality. It did not cost the Colts a playoff win or SB win. To be honest I rarely think about this play. I think of Peyton's pick 6 in SB 44 much more than a dumb fake punt play.
What I will say, is that play has zero effect on my life. I am not embarrassed by it, saddened by it, nor angered by it. It is history. It was a play, that was not executed correctly by the personnel on the field at the time. It is over. End of story.
That play was literally the best example of the Chuck Pagano era which imo was the worst era in Colts history. Why? Because we had one of the best talented QBs of all time... it really makes me appreciate Frank and Ballard that much more. You cant argue how much coaching matters when you see the difference in coaching staffs. But I will end with it there. I spent 2 years talking about that era coming to an end.
