Coach Caldwell, like many of us here, is sick of hearing about "the decision." Caldwell has asked players to deflect the media's questions regarding the decision and focus on the the game tomorrow night.
"The real key is what you do this time of the year," Caldwell said. "That's how everybody is judged in this league. I'd like to be judged that exact same way. Can you get your team to the biggest game and vie for the most coveted trophy in professional team sports? And can you win it?
So, with Caldwell asking the players to stop talking about it, I ask that us, as the fans, to do the same thing and please drop it and let it go. There is a bigger task at hand right now and that's to beat the Ravens. That will put is one step closer to the ultimate goal this team laid out before the season...and that's to get to Miami.
The horse has been beaten, buried, dug back up, and beaten again. This Colts teams is a special team. They have overcome a lot of diversity. Most had written them off before they even stepped foot on the football field. Coaching changes and player changes were just too much for this team to over come in one off season. Well guess what? This team is 14-2 riding into the playoffs as the #1 seed in the AFC. Home field advantage throughout and they got a week to rest up and get healthy. What more could we ask for? This team hasn't been this healthy in the playoffs in, well...ever.
So lets put this crazy shit behind us, and go out and cheer on our beloved Colts all the way to Miami. I, for one, am very proud of what this team has accomplished, and I am even more proud to call myself a Colts fan. If you are one of the lucky ones to be going to the game tomorrow, then cheer extra loud for those of us who can't make it. And lets show The Baltimore Professional Football Team what the 12th man is suppose to sound like!
