    Is anyone else irritated we didn't draft Miller instead of drafting TJ. Nothing against TJ, but Miller is so good. Here's his stats this year that really showed up to me:

    Rec: 39
    Yds: 459
    TD: 6
    8 receptions of 20+ yards
    2 receptions of 40+ yards

    This is a team that doesn't throw that much. Think of what they would have been provided he was in a system that is more balanced, instead of an all running team like Pitt. I figured Miller would hav gone in the 1st round, I just wish we would have drafted him.

    Smith does pretty good work overall, but one on one there are not many good options against Freeny.

    Refs really needed a no-call or "dual" call on those facemasks. The Colts are getting schooled thus far in almost every phase of the game.

    1st quarter of this game has done nothing to refute the notion that Manning and Dungy are poor big game performers.

    I'm just as irritated that we didn't draft Jason Whitten when we took Bennie Joppru.

    There was no other thread available for you to express that? We are talking about a specific football game in this one.

    Was over there on their msg board. I sooooo, wanted to rub it in. But as a Houston fan I've got class. You'd think they would play w/ more fire w/ what has happened over the past month, and then the Broncos knocking off the Pats.

    Nice no-call on the key 4th down play.

    Anyone wondering what Manning would have done playing in Houston the last few years? You are seeing it today. Yet some continue to believe that Carr is the problem. It's funny what happens when Superman doesn't have time to throw.

    Manning had plenty of time on that last throw when he threw the INT to Polamalu...

    Maybe you're right, but that was one play. When Manning has time to throw, he makes much better decisions. When he is being blitzed (see this game and the Charger's game) he makes rushed decisions. So our 50 plays > your 1 play

    Manning still has over 200 yards with all this pressure, 200 yards for Carr would be a career day...
