This is like watching live-action madden.

4 TDs partially through the 2nd quarter.

Apparently, the defenses weren't invited today.

I wish I was getting to see it. I'm stuck with this wonderful Sehawks-49ers game.

This explosion through the air is also not good for my Wienerleague2 fantasy team, as I have Ahman Green.

No, no, no. It's not that the Colts' offense is so good, it's that the Packers' defense is like a sieve - which someone used for skeet shooting and then ran-over...twice.

The thoughts of a Packers fan, who knows he's going to be watching lots of half-games this year (if he watches them at all). 'Cuz there's no point when you know your team is going to be thoroughly OWNED.

Peyton Manning is just a mastermind. The Colts offense is now the new "Greatest Show on Turf" ...

And Reggie Wayne is fast becoming more of a household name.

I'm a Colts fan but let's be honest, if Peyton was any kind of mastermind he would have figured out a way to stop handing games to New England by now. A good win for Indy, but Green Bay ought to question that strip-fumble of their receiver late in the game because his forward progress had stopped. The refs arguably could have blown it dead and instead the guy got mugged.

On the other side of the coin, at the end of the Texans-Chiefs game today the referees blew a third down play dead to call a phantom sack on Trent Green. A defender had his foot, Green was standing up about to break free and cocking his arm to throw, but they inexplicably blew it dead. This coming just a few snaps after a similar play where Green broke 2 sacks and hit Tony Gonzalez for a big gain. Due to the call KC had to punt, and the Texans went on the game winning drive.

Even though the GB call benefitted Indy, it's annoying to see games hinge on these type of calls where it's left to the referee's judgment and different refs make different calls. If you're going to have replay, all calls should be challengable.

This one was extremely frustrating. I'm not going to say this call blew the game for us, but, it certainly did nothing to improve our chances.

I agree that it was a bad call, but it made sense in the circumstances. It looked like Trent Green was in the process of being demolished, and the NFL has many rules in place to protect the Quarterback. The ref was too fast on the whistle, but I don't really blame him for the call.

The Colts' pass defense wasn't so impressive at first either, and until the Colts went up 21-14 near the end of the 1st(!) quarter, it really looked like it was going to be a last-possession game (as Collinsworth and Buck decided to drill the word "shootout" in every five seconds).

The penalty, or lack thereof, that blew my mind was at the two-minute warning at the end of the game. Since when does play stop because the clock hits two minutes? Hasn't it always been that, if they play is already in motion (i.e., the QB is at the line of scrimmage calling audibles and flapping his arms to waste 40 seconds that he apparently didn't realize he had at the start of the play), the game continues until the play is over, and the two minute warning is taken at whatever time that is? Or did I miss that rule change? The play clock was about half a second ahead of the game clock, and Indy should have had a delay of game called, THEN the two-minute warning should have gone into effect - right?

But if you don't watch, you don't get to use the Official Scapegoat Excuse for the remainder of the weekend - any and all actions, decisions, or behaviors are justified solely because the (your team here) got served. I've been using it for 4 out of the last 5 years now. :)

This is how it has always been. A play isn't officailly "in motion" until the ball is snapped. This was a very good recovery move on the part of Manning and the Colts. But yes, the play clock did seem to be a half tick ahead of the game clock.

I loved how the ref covered his ass.

"Since the play clock was at 40 seconds, and the game clock was at 2:40, there is no delay of game. We will now take the two minute warning."

Ye gods.

It ain't like our secondary was the best to begin with, then McKenzie, finally back for his first scheduled start of the year, gets "injured" 3 days beforehand? Hmmm...

Plus the rookie Ahmad Carroll was out with a pulled groin (poor fella couldn't get a date? *ba-dum-bum*), and in goes an already-hurt Michael Hawthorne...who gets TOASTED. Al Harris and Darren Sharper looked as bad as I've ever seen 'em look.

Attention, new defensive coordinator...would it KILL you to maybe move outta the base defense (it's not like Edgerrin James was tearing us a new one...PEYTON was) and throw in 5 or 6 DBs? This one-on-one sh*t didn't work for Hall and Oates, nor for us.

And then Favre actually comes out of a game with tightness in the hamstring. In rumbles the nicest Prince Valiant/mullet combo in football, Doug Pederson...who promptly ignores wideouts wide open in the end zone and decides to make up the 14-point deficit w/ 6-yard dink & dunk passes over the middle.

And what's the deal with game-costing fumbles? {/Seinfeld} Poor Javon Walker...the game of his career so far, and that turnover just killed the Pack. (Refs made the correct call, but it still sucks.)

Again...ye f'n gods.

The Packers aren't going to win a damn think until Mike Sherman is gone. How this guy got the key to the franchise is beyond me.

I know the Pack D is thin, buy HEY, after the first 3 times you got burned, how about doing an adjustment.... I feel bad for Brett, he's still great even now but his remaining years are being wasted because of incompetence around him, starting with Sherman.
