Halftime of game 15 and they have a shot at an undefeated season and they pack it in.  They deserve to get beat in the playoffs and hopefully it will be us -again.

We're in a bit of trouble if Colts reserves don't rally against Jets though.

Rookie coach in particular should have the balls to go for it.

I knew they would pull this bullshit. I'm rooting against them in the playoffs against anyone but the patriots. You think they would have learned by now.

If Philly hangs on, we need New England and Cincy win next week right? Oh the irony.

Next week's big game: we need the Pats to beat Houston. If they do, and we win, we're in.  If they don't, we're fucked.

We also need the Bungles to win on the road @ Jets, thanks to Indy closing shop early.

BTW credit to the players - you could see Peyton et al wanted to play but they held it in check. No swipes at the coaching staff, well deserved as it might be.

Still want them to pay for thumbing their nose at history.

I have tyo say Caldwell's explanation is like saying "we want to win the lottery, and only the lottery.  We don't want to triple up the dollar amount we may win by playing the powerball, we just want the lottery."

It's his team, as the coach, his choice as ubelievable as it is, regardless of what it means to Steelers.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

Shouldn't the title of this thread be, "FUCK THE COLTS!!!"?

I agree it's his decision.  I just don't agree with it.  I see why he did it.  If he leaves important players in and one gets hurt, the same people ripping him for bailing would be ripping him for not bailing.  However, this isn't 14-2 we're talking about.  It's perfection - and momentum.  Now as much as they say they are turning the page, in the back of players' minds is the fact they could have been undefeated. 

They play part of next week, then have bye, and now it's a month since they played a whole game.

I think if players are dinged up, rest them - otherwise let them play.

Couldn't agree more.  Especially with a veteran ballclub.  They all have rings, except for Freeney, who just has worms.
