Even playing at home against the Titans, I still can't see how the Colts can be that favored. Whatever happened to parity in the NFL?

Well, considering there's only 3 undefeated teams left after 4 weeks I'd say parity is looking good for the most part. You're still going to have your few really bad teams regardless.

Dude, have you seen the Titans play? I think 19 points is a kind estimate.

Has the Adrian Peterson-watch begun in Nashville yet?

Not yet. They drafted LenDale White, so I think he's the heir appearant. We really need O-Line & D-Line help more than anything.

Let's not write the Titans into the #1 pick yet. The Raiders and Lions are still around and sucking, and, despite this past Sunday, the 2 Titans/Texans match-ups do qualify as Toilet Bowls. And, I wouldn't be shocked if that line was up to 20.5 by Sunday morning.

We just lost to Dallas by 31 points.

Dallas!!! By 31!!!.

And one our best defensive players is suspended for being a dumbass and were ONLY 19 point underdogs. That's a small miracle in itself.

And no Adrian Peterson, we need O-line and defensive help. Oh, and a new D-Coordiator. Jim Schwartz needs to be gone before you *think* of getting rid of Fisher or Chow. Floyd Reese should be on the hot seat too.

We are bad but I think we can beat Houston twice. If everything goes right.

I can't imagine that the Titans will finish with a worse record than the Raiders. Raiders are already on the clock from what I've seen.

This line will move higher. I've not seen a safer pick this year.

Vince is a kid out of his league right now.

I would never be able to bet the line on this simply because I never bet NFL lines at 20 or more (which I think it will get to) but man, this game is just begging to be teased with some others.

That said, this seems like one of those nasty trap games that kill a lot of gamblers, as you end up with one of those games where a ball bounces funny, and a Titan gets a fumble recovery TD, and Manning's receivers drop a lot of balls, and the Colts give up a garbage time TD and end up winning something like 31-13.

The only reason I would have fear (if I was a Colts fan) is that this will no doubt be the one week where just about the entire remaining people in the W suicide pool all take one team, and that team will be Indy. The Texans always blow out a bunch of the W's. It happens every year.

Damn, what a heartbreaking loss ...

After today, I at least think that the Titans are a better team than the Raiders or the Lions ...
