Yeah I have seen it. Some fun facts about that special season:

 

-We started 9-0 that season.

 

-We went 8-0 in the Regular Season at home that season, nobody beat us in the dome.

 

-We went 4-0 in the Playoffs to win the SB that season.

 

-We won the Divisional Round game at Baltimore taking out Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, and Steve McNair.

 

-We beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game.

 

-We finished that season 10-0 at home counting the playoffs. Undefeated in the dome.

 

-We won 80% of our games that season counting the playoffs = 16-4. We joined the 80% club

 

-We beat the Bears in the SB which was so great because I have 2 friends that have been life long Bears fans. Had we lost that, I would've never heard the end of it. :funny:

@2006Coltsbestever given your name, this comes as no surprise that you were first to comment on this thread... I’m actually surprised you didn’t start it! :lol:

Hey that is my favorite team of all-time lmao . I have always said my 3 favorite Colts teams have been:

1. 2006

 

2. 1995 - Harbaugh magic

 

3. 2012 - watching Andrew as a rookie take us from 2-14 to 11-5 was beautiful! and all of those comeback wins too. Reggie was a beast that season as well.

Lots of Bears fans here in norther Indiana too.   It was a great victory.

 

I still here people mention that Bears team as one of the worst SuperBowl teams.   

Some info on the 2006 Bears:

They were tied with the Colts at 2nd most points scored with 427.   The Chargers had 492.

 

They were 3rd in the league in points allowed at 255.   Patriots allowed 237 and the Ravens allowed 201.

 

2nd in the league in point differential at +172 only behind the Chargers with 189.

 

They went 13-3

 

Although they didn't have the big flashy names, they were a very solid team all season.

It is because Rex Grossman was their QB is why people think the Bears were a weak opponent. Most people are hung up on the QB. I do think the winner of the AFC that year was going to win the SB but I wouldn't say the Bears were a weak opponent. I think the worst team I have ever seen make the SB was the 1994 Chargers. I am going way back but how that team made the SB was shocking.

Has anyone seen this yet? Boy I'm ready for some football.

 

 

 

Seen it several times.  Recently the NFL Network replayed the game.  When I watch it I can almost hear Peyton talking about the plays.  How he described the way Fletcher wanted to call plays was classic.

    • The quoted stat says JT runs.   The OP took that and somehow twisted it into an indictment on Rivers.  Pretty stupid post honestly.
    • A bit of a reach you're making here.  There's no evidence that stat has anything to do with opponents fearing Rivers' ability to throw downfield.  You come off as an irrational Rivers hater to be honest.   As others have pointed out, Rivers has been pretty deadly when going deep compared to the rest of the league. You also ignore the fact that this stat is for actual JT running plays - not all plays - as well as the fact that the stat is likely skewed by the fact that in half of our games we ran clock for the majority of the second half.  Of course the D is gonna stack the box in those situations.   Do you happen to know which 4 RBs have faced a higher percentage of stacked boxes on their runs?  And if so, do you also claim it's because those QBs are not "feared"?
    • My Dad died In 2008. I made the trip back then to the Baltimore Area and saw my old room. Mackey's poster was the only poster I'd ever had. Still was hanging, more than 40 years after buying it.  Great Man!  Most kids today never heard of him. Made the absolute weirdest 75 yard TD in SB V.....   In those days an offensive player couldn't catch it after another offensive player had touched it, unless the defense touched it in between.  The game was held up forever as the refs tried to see if a Cowboy's fingernail grazed the ball...
    • Does Brady have enough footballs to keep AB and everyone else happy? If I had to guess... no but we will see.....
    • Keep in mind the Bucs are in win-now mode. They know once Brady is done, they are effectively done. Taking a chance on Brown makes sense, because Brown makes them better now. The Colts don't need to win now because we have a young nucleus of guys and a promising (imo) young QB in Eason. I know that sucks to hear, but Brown isn't worth compromising our locker-room over.
