    It was only a few weeks ago that the Colts were favored by 1, even with the knowledge that Peyton was not going to be participating in preseason.........which would have already accounted for a lessening of that number to begin with.

    Get used to it. Even John Lopez was predicting the Texans being favored in 11 games this season.

    I'm sure there is a page in Ripley's Believe it or Not for stuff just like this.

    Over here.
    We all knew Peyton was getting older and the Texans slowly getting better (well, hopefully anyway). Not saying Peyton has lost anything, but an injury that kept him out of a game against us was not all that unlikely. Couple that with how much that team depends on him (which is astronomical) and, no, I'm not surprised.

    Well, maybe just a little, but not much. :)

    Keep in mind, that this line is with the significant possibility that Foster is not in the picture.........just one more good reason not to take any chances.

    I didn't know that. Wow, they must have have gotten an overwhelming number of takers when it was Houston as a 1 point dog. I can imagine thay did at that.

    When the game is over with, as long as we're ahead by at least one point, I'm good with it. :)

    This proves King never watches our games. Everyone who does knows that as soon as Kubiak gets a 10 point lead he unleashes his 'prevent offense': clock-chewing, rhythm-breaking, allowing your opponents back into the game football.

    I see us getting a big play action pass play on the first play from scrimmage to Andre. You know the Colts are gonna be biting on the run.

    I see no point in even showing up, let's just mail it in ?
    Seriously, I'm sure this spread will really provide a hich-octane stumulus for the Colts in their season opener. Thankfully it's also our season-opener, so maybe we will have problems but they shouldn't be from over confidence or lack of inspiration.
