Default Kill Payton

Why is he still on the field throwing the ball? And when you get a chance on a PIC someone needs to take his head off. Overall the worst day in Texan's history. How embarrassing.

This is totally unsportsmanlike! This is one classless orginization and the fans are as well. I can't believe they're doing this. You've got a RB like James, it's 3rd and short, just run out the clock! NO CLASS WHATSOEVER! I can't believe a respectable coach like Dungy would do this. I hope Manning gets his lights knocked out of him. I understand when you've got a full quarter left to play (anything can happen in football), but once you're at eh 5 min mark, it's time to pack you're bags and go him.

exactly... we still had our best players in the game... as much as I hate a blowout like this.. the game is being played.. It should have showed the Texan players that 2 weeks in a row.. the playoff word was used.. and 2 weeks in a row it showed how far we have to go

He was still throwing because he could. We did nothing to stop him. He wanted to break Dan Marino's TD record on this game and if he played today's Texans a few more quarters, he would get the record. He only needs around 15+- more td passes. My question is why did our defense allow him to throw this much?

I'm glad they kept Manning in the game and he kept passing. We need all the practice we can get on defense. I would be really embarrased if Sorgi was put in and he torched us also.

Yep, pretty much sums up my take on it.

Hope this buttwhooping sinks in to the team and they actually do something the next time we play the Colts. They did not seem to really care that Manning was going for personal glory and records, and they did not get fired up about it.

Hey, if our players could give a ****, then why should I?

If our team takes the "so what" attitude, then why should I get all emotional over it?

Why should I be proud of a team that shows no indication of pride in itself?

I'm not direspecting the team or bandwagoning (I'll always be a Texans fan, thick or thin), but rather I'm just stating the obvious. Our team acted like it did not matter to them at all.

I guess it's just a game.

The Texans were stacking the box with 8 men. That is the reason Payton kept throwing the dang ball. And if we would have played football up until that point it would have been a perfectly normal and reasonably sound decision on his part. Big deal they had a substantial lead. This entire argument about classy or not is just plain NOT CLASSY. Manning and his team were payed to play their best game, they did. From start to finish. The real question here is why didn't the Texans? Not whether or not another TD mattered one way or the other.

8 men in the box, against the run, of course ANY QB in the league is going to be throwing the ball. Or eating it for a sack lunch.

No you are wrong. You don't try to run up the score knowing full well the game is over. With a substantial lead like that a team is going to run out the clock and not show up their opponent. I really don't see any other QB doing that. A coach is going to run a big set to keep pounding the ball. This is just plain showboating, even the announcers thought so.

My thinking is the Colts thought they were practicing against their 3rd stringers since that's basically the way the Texans were playing.

Or maybe they were confused and thought pro football was under the BCS system as are the colleges.

These guys are pros. They'll forget about it until they play them next time and maybe the situation will be reversed. If they are still worrying about it today the Packers will come in here and score at will also.

Bottom line you dont try to run the score up once the game is won....That was very weak on the part of the Colts.....I would have sent a headhunter in the game and take him out......period!.Say what you will,but that was pathetic.Our team looked pathetic,but trying to throw the ball...up by that many points was very much like a slap in the face.I will be in the north endzone against the Packers...I hope I can make it to the rematch at our house....should be a bloodbath.

I disagree completely. You don't stop playing the game. You don't want Indy running up the score?? Try playing some freaking defense. The only thing I saw wrong with it is that if I were Dungy, I would at least had the 2nd team in there getting some snaps.

I hate to say this, but if you want a QB to stop throwing and disrespecting you, then you need to stop him. Its like TO says. If you don't want me dancing in the endzone(disrespect) then stop me. The Colts and their fans were having fun. The Texans did not do their job.

You guys seem to forget that untill this game Colts D has done nothing for them, colapsing, giving up leads, etc. Just last week, it looked like they had the Vikings game in controll and then bam - they were tied.

I don't mind the fact that the Colts threw it. It's how they threw it. They were throwing 40 yard bombs still late in the 4th. One was on a 3rd and 1 play. If it were 3rd and 10, and the htrow a 15-20 routes to get a 1st and maintain possesion I under stand. But, 40 and 50 yard heaves are obviously intended to score TD's. I mean c'mon, that's why there is a kneel down play at the end of the game. When you have the game won, just get it over with.

Default LACK of CLASS by the Colts...

It wasn't the fact that they came to play...the game was over and they were still trying for the Long ball.....that is a time when you should just run the ball right, run the ball left, run the ball up the middle but not throwing a bomb down the right side to try to add to the beating...IT JUST SHOWS the Class of the Colts....NONE!!!! In some ways I am glad they did it because it woke up our team but I wish they would have been up about 2 1/2 hours earlier...when the game started. It was the worst game I have seen our team play in our history. We couldn't do anything right. Special teams, O~Line, DB's...everyone. It will be a long week but I hope our great fans in Houston show up on Sunday Night and take a step in the right direction. This was the second time in a row we were whipping boys and that has to stop because we will be at HOME!!!

GET UP HOUSTON FANS and LET THEM HEAR YOU!!!! I know it mades a difference because it was great to see our fans at the Astros game during the NLCS...Second greatest sporting event I have attended in my life...NO. 1!!! you ask...TEXANS 19-Cowboys 10!!!!

Anyway, hope everyone has a safe holiday season.

Geaux TEXANS, TIGERS and ROCKETS!

I think it was good he kept throwing the ball, sure it showed no class but this will leave a bad taste in the mouth of the texans. The next time they meet I'm sure our D will be amped up and ready to prove they're no pushovers...
