In Response to Re: SEAU IS A PATRIOT - AGAIN!
[QUOTE]TC - my comments had nothing to do with diminishing the pats accomplishments. Only that pats fans here want to diminish ALL of the colts wins this year by suggesting that the neither the phins nor the cards are any good.
Further, I actually made a comment in another thread about the fact that Brady's accomplishments are diminished by how well the pats did last year with Cassell. I think the pats did an excellent job. If Manning would not have played last year, I believe with all of the injuries that the colts would have been a 5-6 game winner. But then again, I think Manning is much more important to the overall success of the colts than Brady is to the success of the pats.

First of all, the highlighted section doesn't make sense. Unless the Colts wins over the 'Fins and Cards were "all" of their wins, your comment does not compute.
Second, while I am sure some have questioned the strength of the Colts' opponents so far, many others here have also paid compliments to the Colts. Have you already forgotten your thread about "best QBs"? Or comments about elite teams. Or comments about the Colts transitioning amazingly with a new HC? I do.
Additionally, you were one of those knocking the strength of the opponents the '08 Pats beat last year. "Live by the sword..."
Right now, the AFC North looks surprisingly weak, even though it was perhaps the strongest last year. So don't worry, your Colts will waltz into the play-offs. Know this: The Pats have already faced the top two defenses and the top two offenses in their first five games. They had not played a team with a loss yet. That is a tough schedule. I am hoping it makes them a tougher team and the Colts a comparitively weaker team. (However, buy now I am not expecting much from this team, as they are too inconsistent, a lot like the 2002 team.)
One last thing: Reflecting on the "best QBs" thread, I consider Manning to now be the best regular season QB of his era. Conversely, I consider him among the worst post-season QBs of his era. It is pretty agreeable outside of Indy and N.E. that the Colts have won a number of their post-season games with help from the stripes, which makes Mannings pathetic post-season record look that much worse. So, yeah, crucial to winning in the season, but he is a detriment in the post-season. I consider his brother superior in this aspect.
