Colts offensive line coach Howard Mudd said this when he was asked about teams copying the Steelers gameplan against the Colts:
Take your best shot, replied Mudd. And that includes the Steelers, should they meet again this postseason.
"I'm very respectful of the Pittsburgh Steelers," Mudd said. "They won. They are the champions and I respect them. But the Pittsburgh Steelers did not beat the Colts. The Colts beat the Colts.
"Let's go play again. Right now."
"Tell him they were outcoached."
And Larry, I'd get your memory checked. Your offense didn't drive up and down the field all game on the Colts. The INT call back was sketchy, but so were several pass interference calls, or non-calls, that favored the Steelers all game (something that reoccurred in the Steelers' favor in the Super Bowl against Seattle).
So please, quit the crying Larry, or I might have to buy you a matching rattle and diaper.
Methinks Larry feels disrespected. Why? He has a ring. Why does he even care what some o-line coach thinks? Maybe he just needs to remove his head from his own a$$.
Update [2006-8-16 16:31:17 by BigBlueShoe]: Well, it seems many of the fine chaps at Behind the Steel Curtain disagree with my assessment. I had no idea Steelers fans actually cared what I thought.
