Wow, to think I almost gave up on the game when it was 21-3. It can't be considered an upset when the home team wins but man they REEEEEEEEEEEEALLY sukkked in the first quarter.

That Peyton Manning....he's okay. If you're into 6'5" 235 pound quarterbacks. He's pretty good.

Can't recall the last time I've seen a conference championship game this exciting. The Tuck Game? Maybe. For me personally it would probably be Falcons over Vikings in OT (NFC, 1998). Then again, the first half of this game wasn't that exciting at all. In fact, I all but gave up on this game at halftime and missed a huge chunk of the 3rd quarter to go pick up some salsa at the store.

That being said, hell of a game. Hell of a comeback. Hell of a performance by Manning, especially after the thumb injury. Hell of a pickup in Joseph Addai and Adam Vinatieri. Yowza.

That was one entertaining game. Notice I didn't say great or well played, but entertaining. After I got back from church and we finished dinner, I picked up the game from the beginning of the 3rd quarter when the score was 21-6. Lots of back and forth. Peyton finally got the monkey off his back. Good for him.

Play that turned the game around was the Troy Brown pass interference call in the 2nd quarter. New England looked like they were going for the knockout to get at least 24-3 if not 28-3 up, instead, 10 yard penalty, 5 yard penalty, punt, Colts offense gets going on 3rd and long.
Still wondering why New England kept Maroney as the main back in the second half rather than Dillon or Faulk. Where was Faulk after the 1st quarter anyway?
Eli Manning looked more and more clueless every time they showed him. That was the Joe Barry Carroll trade of the NFL by the now departed Ernie Accorsi.
Brady could have iced the game on 3rd and 4 with 2:30 to go. Should have run a draw in that situation.
Trading Deion Branch caught up with New England on Caldwell's repeated drops. They were saved on the first one, the second one was deadly.
Colts are a 7 point favorite with an over/under of 49 on the place I'm checking Zed.
Over/under on how many times we here that Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are black head coaches is around 50,000 in the next 2 weeks. I'll take the over.
Say this about Patriots games in the post-season: They generally keep you watching until the end.

I think I'll just retreat to the computer while my Patriot-earring clad girlfriend is blaming me for her team losing, because I declared I was happy it was a close game.

I totally didn't see the Colts performing that comeback, and when Dungy challenged that TD, I thought for sure he had fallen into the same trap that Marty did last week.

These two playoff games make me wish I could go back to looking at the Patriots like the old Patriots, who I would have been thrilled to have just made the playoffs and given me no expectations of further success. I totally expected the Patriots to win, and in hindsight they REALLY need to get some more depth and especially speed on defense.

Chargers fans should be further killing themselves since there isn't any reason that exact thing couldn't have happened last week.

Congrats to Peyton and Tony Dungy. I know I'm supposed to hate those guys, but I'm glad Manning is going to have a chance to FINALLY get the big win he's never gotten (tonight's win isn't the ultimate one).

And the Tuck Rule game was a Divisional Playoff game. The Patriots went to Pittsburgh the following week to win the AFC title.

Any bets I make on the Bears will be with my hopes resting on Brian Urlacher. Rex the Wonder Monkey is just along for the ride in the most Dilferian of ways.

That said, any Bears fan who bets on the Bears right now is crazy. With the incessant Manning hype that is sure to ensue, I wouldn't be surprised to see this line move up to Colts -9 or more. The barstool pundits of the world are going to see this as a total lock now that Peyton finally got the Brady monkey off his back.

Once again in these playoffs, the Colts didn't win as much as the other team lost.

* Reche Caldwell is fucking useless. This can be blamed on Belichick/Pioli and company, for sticking with the C-team at wideout all year long and it finally bit them in the ass.

* The dumb little penalties along the way that held back drives, like the too many men in the huddle.

* Laurence Maroney has forgotten how to play running back since early December. His first step is NEVER forward, have you noticed that? He's always trying some shuffling crap instead of actually moving the ball forward.

* Dillon and Faulk basically didn't see the field after the first half, which was inexplicable

* The Patriots played the STUPID RETARDED prevent defense at the end of the first half to avoid any 'big plays,' while the Colts marched down the field with 10-20 yard passes every time. The prevent is the worst defense in football, and using it here instead of continuing to pressure Manning was just stupid.

And, just for the conspiracy theorists, the roughing the passer penalty on Manning at the end of the game was non-existent, and Caldwell was interfered with in the end zone for another non-call.

Fuck the Colts, go Bears go.

I would never have believed that any final Tom Brady drive could end in an INT, but there it was. This year in the NFL has been Bizarro World in so many ways, but this game just cemented it that much further. You mean Peyton Manning led his team to victory in the final two minutes while Tom Brady choked in his final drive? If that isn't total insanity, I don't know what is.

Damn, what a great game, though.

This was one of my favorite games not involving my own team ever. Up there with the Red Sox/Yankees in '04 and the Patriots/Rams Super Bowl (little did we know the evil that would be spawned).

You probably are better off betting the Bears on the money line in this game anyway, if you are picking the Bears. This has the feel of the Bears either forcing 5 turnovers and winning a close game or the Colts winning by more than 4 touchdowns, with America bailing out of the game at the half. Money line is already getting close to -250 for the Bears, it will probably be paying out between 5-2 and 3-1 as the Super Bowl approaches. Perfect world the line fluctuates to Colts -6.5 and then jumps up to Colts -7.5, whereby, if you time it right, you play both ways, hope the game ends up on the 7 and you win both. Worst case all you lose is the vig. That's why I'm suprised they put the number at 7. Dangerous number for the house.

Does anyone have any pictures of this? I watched the first half, then by the time I got home, Indianapolis had scored 15 points, and I was afraid to turn the game back on, so as not to jinx them.

Seriously. I haven't watched many Pats games this year so I'm not sure if his eyes always look like that, but he looked like he was possessed by something. And it wasn't just after that wide open dropped pass.

The whole look on Caldwell's face was of a guy who felt that he didn't belong there and was in over his head, and he had finally done something (like not make a wide open catch) that alerted his bosses that he didn't belong there either.

Manning praising that Pats as a class organization makes a funny comparison with Tomlinson's post-game comments last week.

I was also curious if Caldwell's eyes always looked like that. It almost looked like the guy was on something.
