I need to decompress from this absolutely gut wrenching loss, so I will be more coherent tomorrow in my analysis. I was pleased with how they were in it until the very end, but I was so disappointed in how the defense could not stop giving up big gains. All game the Colts were able to move the ball for huge chunks of yards. The corners were awesome, but the defense just couldn’t defend the middle of the field. I guess they played too tight on the outside.
Either way, I hate to be the negative nelly here, but I think this is the last of the “dynasty” years here in New England. It all reminds me so much of the Cowboys in the mid 90’s. After that third title, they were close for a few years but couldn’t get past the Packers. I feel like the Colts are now the Packers of this era.
Feel free to discuss here and on the forum. What a shame. Plenty of thoughts and analysis to be heard this week. Honestly, I will most likely avoid the Super Bowl. I can’t stand the thought of Peyton Manning hoisting the trophy, and it looks like he will do that in two weeks. Ugh.
