Could someone with football knowledge explain what the heck happened to the Colts offense in that game? Did they play too conservative? How in the heck did they only score 3 points?

If, you're referring to the NE game and memory serves me correct. BB had the grounds crew wet the field (rumor) the evening before the game. Also, the zebras allowed the Pats CBs, to  hold and molest the Colts WRs the entire game. Very few flags on the defense.

 

Anyone, feel free to correct me if I'm off.

In the middle of this, the renaissance of the Colts' high-powered offense, you ask this of me?  What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully?

They say that game changed the NFL.  

 

It’s all documented in a different thread how the rules committee, led by Polian, insisted they actually call pass interference.   

 

It’s continued to evolve into a offense friendly league due to health concerns, and ratings.

That was 03' AFCCG. I'm talking about the 04 divisional game where they only scored 3 freaking points.

The 04 game was the same thing, BB had the field water downed plus it snowed and they held on Defense all game. The Rules didn't change until 2006 I think. 

No, they changed the next year  ('04).

You could say the only loss worse than that is the goose-egg the Colts laid against the NY Jets in the 2002 playoff loss.

 

0-41...

I STILL dont know how we fell apart to a lame arm QB (Pennington)

 

????

 

Painful

 

The losses to SD, Pittsburgh, NE,............  very PAINFUL

Well if that game was played today, the pats would have been flagged for holding and defenseless receiver basically every play. Also didnt help the field was horrible and it was cold.

I just learned to take the good with the bad. On the positive side in the Peyton era (Playoff games) we also smoked Denver in 2003 and 2004, we won at KC in 2003, in 2006 we won at Baltimore, beat NE, and Beat Chicago to win the SB in 2006, and in 2009 torched the Jets in the AFC Title Game. All huge defining wins for the Colts organization and for Peyton. Peyton still won alot of huge Playoff games here in Indy and we got a Ring in 2006.

I get that, but the Colts team had the talent to win 4 Super bowls

 

We OWNED the regular season

 

We GOT OWNED by ANYONE in the playoffs that ran a 3-4

 

3-4 from a decent team was Peytons KRYPTONITE

Not really.  How many times did we have a bye or home field?  3-4 times in Manning's Indy years?  

 

Won the Super Bowl playing on Wild Card weekend.

Why are you even bringing this up?  That happened 14 years ago so what's your point? 

Could it be you hand picked a game so you could troll?

I thought it was because I remember the Pats getting away with a bunch of grabbing/holding in that 04 game as well. It was brought to the league's attention after the 03 game but nothing changed until 05.

Because I'm a Colts fan who is interested in the history of the franchise, and wanted tk seek an explanation about how the Patriots held the Colts to only 3, because I don't understand. I have been watching a bunch of old games, and wanted to discuss with other Colts fans. I thought maybe a Colts forum would be an appropriate place.

 

Why does it bother you so much? 

 

Been on these forums longer than you; I'm no troll.

Maybe "owned" might be a strong word.......... I THINK you would agree that we were a top 5 team in the NFL for MOST of the Manning era

 

Of course not the Manning injury seasons

 

With these TOP teams, we didnt win OUR SHARE of the games in the playoffs 

 

I think we should have won more.......  with the amazing, once in a lifetime offense that we had

Oh, sounded like a re-hash and dig on Manning and the team.

I've moved on, hurts too bad to dwell for me.

No, I genuinely want to know what happened. I remember watching it live and I was in shock. It was my first season of watching football hardcore. I never understood.

 

I have been on an old school game watching bnge lately, too

To me it is simple, they ran into a better team.  It is not much more complicated than that.  The Brady and Belichick combination then was just as lethal as it is remains today.  They had some pretty good talent on defense as well.   

 

The holding, the weather and the field being watered down are just excuses.  To me it is was like hitters adjusting to the ump's strike zone - the Pats did it quicker & better than Indy.  In short, the Pats were just better than the Colts in that game.

Well, it always seemed like a playbook would go missing in the NE visitor locker room.  I remember other teams saying it too.

And then theres the video "rumors" and the microphones (allegedly) on their defensive players, and dont forget how teams have commented on "static" thru their headsets.  And does anyone remember how often the communication from coach to field would be inopperable at Gillette?  For a team that was caught recording games you'd think they would have a grip on their own technologies in their own stadium.

If it looks and smells like crap, guess what?

I don't hate anyone so where you come up with that I don't know.

To start a whole thread over a game 14 years old does nothing but drudge up negative vibes.

The OP explained why he was asking and got his answers. Nothing more, nothing less.

    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
