    What kind of a scam was that? That jackash singlehandedly gave the keys to the NFL playoffmobile to Coach Crybaby. He probably got paid under the table. The Colts players and fans were not happy campers with a shot at an undefeated season. Shula and those Dolphin guys are popping corks tonite.

    Well I guess all we can do is hope these things backfire and coaches realize that playing 16 full games better prepares thrier team for the playoffs. I hope New England gives us all they have Sunday. Then when we beat them, and we will, we can hang our heads high. Unless of course we only play 2 quarters and just win by 7. In that case we just suck.

    I really am not worried about it. Texans need to win next week and let the chips fall where they fall . If the Texans would have taken care of business early in the season, then they wouldn't be scrambling like cockroaches when the lights come on.

    Would I have liked to see the Jets lose today? HECK YEAH!

    Would I like the Texans in the playoffs? damn skippy

    Texans pull out those games against Indy and it wouldn't matter. If I were an Indy fan, I would rather see PM sit out as well. Who cares about an undefeated regular season? Give me a Superbowl anyday. Ask the Patriots.

    Not sure if this is possible or not, but my dream scenario, if cincy lays down for the jets also, is the jets beat cincy in the first round and then eliminates indy in the second. That'll teach em, karma is a biaaatch!

    I think this is Polian's call. Players and coaches want to compete.

    Dungy would have told him to screw off, but Caldwell doesn't have that kind of juice yet.

    Funny that with everyone crying about playoff-bound team's sitting their starters at the end of the season, that may be the exact thing that even gives the Texans a chance to make the playoffs. How many actually think that the Texans would beat the Pats if they Pats had something to play for?

    It seems like every season some team has to make this decison. I'm really not sure if there is a right way to do it. I've seen it backfire and I've seen it work. IMHO though, it backfires more than it works. Problem is, if you leave your starter in and he gets hurt in a meaningless game, you WILL be run out of town with a crazy mob wielding pitchforks and torches. Just so you know....incase you ever have to make that tough call.

    If we somehow get eliminated, that's the way I'd love to see it play out. Perfect karma IMHO for giving up a game.

    Once Peyton is gone the Colts are toast.

    Boy, you talk about a team that has NO chance if they lose just one player. They should rename themselves the Indianappolis Peytons.

    Makes no difference what the Colts try to do. They'll never make it past the Chargers. JMO!!

    This Texans team can beat anyone in the NFL when they don't beat themselves. Don't assume they would lose to the Pats 1st stringers.


    Sincerly,
