[QUOTE]Pats 40 Colts 24 This one has been circled since the schedule came out ~ Colts havent played anyone close to the talent level as the Pats
and I think BB and Tom understand the significance of it and want this one more than ANY game this season. Colts are beat up and barely clingin' to W's while Pats have put up 121 points and given up only 24 in last 12 quarters of play .

I am not going to show a lot of bravado here this week, because the colts have really not played well the last couple of weeks and were fortunate to win against Houston.
BUT the reasoning above (IN RED) is asinine. I have read this week after week after week and am still stunned by it. Regardless of whether or not its true (its not really) What difference does it make?
Lets see -
Miami - both played, both won. Pats at home/Indy on the road
Tennessee - both played, both won. Pats at home/Indy on the road
Atlanta - are they better than Arizona - Not in my book.
NYJ - better than Jacksonville - Not in my book.
Tampa - better than St. Louis - Not in my book.
Baltimore - better than San Fran - maybe, but if so, not by much.
Buffalo - better than Seattle - they both stink in my book.
Denver - better than Houston - probably.
So, if you've played better talent, its marginally better, AND the pats have lost 2 games to the colts 0.
If you want to find reasons why the pats will beat the colts, so be it. But comparing schedules to date is not one of them.
