It doesn't matter. If you, Colts fans, Jim Irsey believe that Peyton Manning is one of the greatest to ever do it, Colts should have had more than 1 ring to show for it. Jim Irsey even said this. That's why Jimmy stated he wanted like 3 in a row (something of that sort) or Championship dynasty.
Jim Irsey: "the goal is to win three in a row."
The NFL even changed rules favoring the offense. Can't jam beyond 5 yards, etc. I know that Peyton alone couldn't couldn't win it all, however, we are talking about Peyton freaking Manning here. Honestly, no excuse. The Miami Dolphins would've sold their stadium to get Peyton Manning with their defense and team which could only beat the Pats.
Pure Brady lovers want the Patriots to miss the playoffs and the Bucs to make the playoffs, I can bet. Pure Belichick lovers want the Patriots to make the playoffs and the Bucs to miss the playoffs. Patriots lovers just want to enjoy the ride with house money for this year since the expectations aren't great and any success that comes close to the playoffs is fantastic.
I fall under none of those categories, so if all of them crash and burn, I'd sleep just fine.
