This last game made me question everything I once thought about our team. A lot of people are saying that it is just one game. That it really didnt mean a thing since we clinched 2 weeks ago. The problem is this:
- Someone will win a super bowl every year
- You can count the teams with undefeated seasons on one hand
- Everyone looks down on the Colts and never gives us the credit we deserve
- A 16-0 season would have changed everything
For the entire season I have listened to every analyst on NFL Network bash my beloved Colts (except Steve Mariuchi, thanks man...) and I have heard nothing but praise for the Saints and how wonderful they are. Problem is the Saints plateaued a long time ago. They have lost to the Cowboys and Bucs these last 2 weeks right after everyone said that they were the best team in football. They remained undefeated with freak plays and blind luck. Yet no one ever questioned them.
On the other hand the Colts made a run at perfection with a banged up starting roster that was dotted with players who barely signed off of the practice squad or after their draft. No one beat us. We fought every game and won by the skill of our players, not the length of our prayers. Yet we are still seen as the inferior team, the lucky ones who squeeked out wins. Im sick of it.
Have you ever noticed that in the past when the colts would reach 12 or 13-0 that everyone started hating us? That people would root against and not for us? But when the Patriots or the New York Yankees of Football and their cheater of a head coach come along with a ruthless bloodlust for a win everyone cheers them on...
Its just not right. People today are to ignorant and just down right stupid. Too many times Ive had to listen to analysts have change of heart when the Colts surge on and their picks fizzle. And when they sit there and tell me that they believed in them all along and give the folks at home a bull shit "I told you so" I can do nothing more than watch the clips from previous weeks and take the lies they are saying.
What the world needs today is a little credibility. More people doing the right thing. Whether it is announcers who dont say that they were wrong when a team shows its true colors or even a prick of a GM who shatters his fans hopes and dreams setting them up for months of ridicule, someone needs to step up and do the right thing.
