The Colts are going to poop on themselves...

I am one of the biggest Peyton Manning fans in the world.  He's a great player and he is one of the most consistent leaders in the history of the game.  The Colts typically have not been a great postseason team.  For some reason, they dominate during the regular season and get into the playoffs and lose to a team that is more physical and seemingly (I know this is hard to imagine) more prepared. 

I think back to 2005, the year before the Colts won their first Super Bowl.  They were the #1 seed, first round bye, and if I remember, they had a similar start, like a 13-0 run.  The Steelers marched into the then RCA dome, ran the ball, shoved their foot down their throat, harrassed Peyton Manning, and kicked their arse on the way to winning Super Bowl XL in Detroit.

I don't see the Patriots as a threat to the Colts this year.  There won't be another New England, Indianapolis AFC title tilt.  The Patriots just aren't that good.  Unlike years past, their defense is not what it was years ago.  They can't get pressure on the quarterback and their secondary is very shady.  Tom Brady looks better, engineering the NFL's 2nd ranked offense.  However, this isn't the team of year's past.  There is no Willie McGinest, no Richard Seymour, no Asante Samuel.  It's not the same group.

The San Diego Chargers, I can't believe I'm saying this, but the Cincinnati Bengals, and if the Steelers get in, which they should, with a chance to defend their title, they have the running game, defense, quarterback, and pedigree, to knock the Colts off again. 

Make sure to keep your eyes on the AFC playoffs.  Watch closely who will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.  It won't be the Colts -- not this year...

The Robot will take the Colts to the Superbowl.  I'm not saying that they will win it, but they will get there. 

IT TURNS OUT THAT YOU WERE EXACTLY RIGHT!!!  WOW!

I JUST KNEW THEY WOULDN'T WIN IT.  FOR ALL OF MANNING'S GREATNESS, HE IS .500 IN THE PLAYOFFS.  AT SOME POINT, THAT HAS TO MEAN SOMETHING!

I am completely surprised to hear you say this my friend.  If you've already ruled out the Patriots, then who?  Cincinnati?  HELL NO!!!!!  Cincy's playing great ball, but they're still not the same caliber team as the Colts.  Pittsburgh is out of the playoffs and although San Diego is also playing great ball, I just don't think they can win in Indianapolis.  There are no real defensive threats in the AFC this year.  At least nobody that poses a threat to the Colts' offense.  I just don't see Cincy, NE, Denver, Baltimore or whomever able to stop these dudes.  They're potent!!

Defense is not going to win a championship this year.  This is a different NFL.  Offense is the key to getting to the promised land and there is NOBODY......NOBODY better than Peyton right now.  The Robot will take the Colts to the Superbowl.  I'm not saying that they will win it, but they will get there.  They have some key injuries on defense, but like I said, offense is going to be the key.  I would love to see the NO and Indy play in the Superbowl...and both undefeated going into that game.  Now that's a Superbowl!
