Sorry, just don't see it. Just went back and watched some of colts games and they were not pretty.
They barely (and should have lost to) beat the 2nd worst team in the NFL at home.
They got beaten by the pretender phins.
They slipped by the hapless whiners.
They stomped the worst team in the NFL (no offense jags).
Not that I would ever under estimate them or say they are a horrible team but I just do not see them as the great force some might like us to think they are. I think we take care of them no problem and continue to roll. Luck is going to make some plays buy looks like he is going to make his share of mistakes as well.
They didn't "slip" by the Nines, they dominated that team. That the Niners were able to come out and demolish the Rams, which have been their Nemesis) showed that the Colts put together a good game plan and executed it well.
The Dolphins are still a good team, losing to NO at NO doesn't make them "pretenders". That team would give us fits right now.
Those two games give me pause about this team. Like Kearly, I thought they were pretenders, now I see some backbone to them and this game worries me a bit.
