[QUOTE]I thought wishing terrorists on Colts fan was a little over the top -- and I am not renowned for my sensitivity around here -- but this is just a chat forum and, aside from looking like clowns in front of a bunch of people they'll never meet, nobody takes much of a beating in here. Keep in mind that what K-Max says is true. Deep in his heart, Colts fan knows that the Pats missed an opportunity to lay a beatdown of epic proportions on Indy, and is quaking in his boots at the prospect of a rematch.

Pats gave up an opportunity for the royal beat down. But that quaking sound isn't coming from Indy Fan. That quaking sound is the aftershock of ANOTHER patriot melt down at the hands of Peyton Manning.
Here's why indyfan's heart is at rest and mind is calm.
1. We gave away the game in the first half -
*24 points in 20 minutes
*3 plays of more than 35 yards
2. We gave away the game in the second half
*2 uncharacteristic Manning picks that had nothing to do with the pats
*2 dropped ints (maybe one was in the first half)
*69 yd punt return by Welker
*Colts score 21 points in the 4th
*Missing 3 starters in the secondary (Hayden, our best CB, is expected to return)
*Pats score only 10 points in final 40 minutes.
*2 longest pat drives result in only 3 points.
*Belichick got exactly the game he wanted. His db's were allowed to have their hands on receivers beyond 5 yards and not one penalty was called. Vollmer had a couple of holds but no penalty. NE hit on big plays.
The colts have so much they can and will improve upon that their deficiencies in the game were patently obvious and correctable. On the other hand, the pats played one of their more solid games of the year.
The colt heart is at rest and the mind is calm.
