The Colts do NOT want to see the Steelers in the post season. This is not just "resting" Manning. Remember when Belichek let Miami win a few years ago in an attempt to keep the Steelers out of post season (they let Flutie kick a FG or something ridiculous)? Same thing here.

Jets just scored a defensive TD...though it's being challenged

That's why you don't want to be in a position to depend on others.

I wouldn't be surprised if Brady played very little if at all next week against the Texans.

Steelere have no one to blame except themselves.

If I was NE or the Colts, I'd love to play the Steelers. Those guys would match up well this year against us and our depleted secondary.

The fans are not happy. They want the win and a shot at a perfect season.

Jets just scored on a strip-sack of the Colts back-up QB Painter making the score 18-15 Jets. Colts have decided to pack it in & spare Manning instead of playing for glory.

True. But there are no easy wins against us. A win against us in the post season usually costs you a starter or two :twisted: :Steel

The Boo Birds are out in Indy. Can't say I blame the current teams for NOT wanting the Steelers in the playoffs, especially Indy after 2005.

Screw Jim Calswell and screw the Colts. Yeah, of course we all have our own selfish reasons for wanting Indy to win, but not only are they likely to now lose out on a perfect season, it's been well documented what happens to their success once they start resting starters.

I hope they lose their first playoff game.

Jesus...now the Broncos have scored 2 TDs in the blink of an eye and turned a rout into a 3 point game. Seems it may not be in the cards for us.

Manning would absolutely destroy the Steeler's lame secondary. I'll still root for them blindley, but they look like sh%^ on a stick.

....and that's a wrap. Looks like next week is an exhibition game...with my luck our D is going to play lights out just to kick me while I'm down.

Well I can't say that I am surprised, nor really am I pissed at the Colts. Truth is the SuperBowl should be the prize.

No folks...just remember this

Cleveland
KC
Oakland
Baltimore (in Baltimore)

win any one of those games and the Steelers control their own destiny. As bad as they looked just winning one of those games and they control their own destiny.

Next week we will have to root that the scrubinies of the Bengals, Pats, and the starters of the Raiders win next week.

Too many if's, some broke our way, some didn't...we left too many needs to happen this season.

I didn't like the Steelers chances even if they won out. Well the Steelers chickens are coming home to roost.

Well put.
Don't be mad at Caldwell (resting his guys & ensuring that the *possibl* most dangerous opponent is prevented from being in the party). It's not a goal of him or his team--the Super Bowl is.

If you want to be mad, be mad at our boys who tanked...

-They are in, and we are not
-They earned that opportunity (to rest guys), we didn't

I'd be pissed if I was a paying colts fan. Gotta say I'd want my $$ back. Even Peyton looked shamed on the bench as they were getting steamrolled with those alleged "NFL players" that the colts put on the field.

I absolutely don't feel bad because they knocked us out. We did that by losing to cincy weeks ago and then the pathetic showings since as far as I'm concerned. No, I'm just choked as a football fan who wants to watch the best product on the field. I feel that the Football Gods look down on that sort of "resting players/avoiding injury" philosophy. Football karma is a b!tch

I have nothing against what Caldwell did. I may be wrong, but didn't they play Peyton & Co. for over a half? I'd like to think I'd play them regardless, but truth is: I probably employ a similar strategy.

I'd probably go 3/4 for the starters, and pull them for the fourth... something like they did. When they pulled them (or, when I started watching), they were still very much in the game. It wasn't like they threw all the scrubs out there w/o warning, or under an insurmountable deficit.

They were winning, and the scrubs shirley knew they were gonna get those minutes. They just weren't good enough I guess, to hold on.

I thought they/he came out in the 2nd quarter? I was, admittedly, only watching sporadically but I thought it was the first half when they called it quits

He played one series in the 3rd. The Colts took the ball, scored a TD in 4:47 and Manning left with about 10 minutes remaining in the 3rd.

It was like a pre-season game.

Seriously, I have nothing against a Steelers fan being upset how things played out with the Colts. Bottom line, win any ONE of five games during that horrible losing streak and we are completely in control of our playoff destiny. That should really drive them nuts during the offseason.

Thanks for the info d.

That's not as bad as I thought then but it still would have choked me if I was a colts fans. It's one of those things where my head gets it my my heart resists. And I do believe in the karmic thing when teams start planning for future games while they are presently engaged in one, whether or not the present one has any bearing whatsoever on the postseason. I dunno. Maybe it seems even worse because it wasn't even the back up playing - it was a 3rd string nobody from nowhere who looked as much. The competition ended as soon as Manning came out and he (Manning) sure looked sickened by it on the sideline

I totally agree. I was just joking around.

I'm more embarrassed for the Colts players and their fans than anything.

Mel - no worries mate. I mean...no worries, eh.

Agreed on all counts Mel...the Colts starters that were out hardly looked like they were okay with the strategy of being pulled out - especially Manning. You can say what you want about resting guys, but it doesn't assure the Colts of anything & they could lose a player just as easily at practice as they could during a game now or later.
