I don't think he will. Not a lot anyway. I think they want the undefeated season so they can be considered one of, if not the greatest teams ever.

I'm not a Colt fan, but for history's sake I hope you are right. Thing is that coaches in the Marty lineage start crapping diamonds as soon as they start sniffing the playoffs. Resting your starters is the same mindset that tells you to play for the FG. It's the safe thing to do.

Second to last. Thing is Seattle could have HFA wrapped up by then and may not have much to play for.

They aren't going undefeated with or without their starters. Don't you people ever learn?

Reality is that they are 11-0 and getting better. No one is in thier class. An undefeated season has been done before, it can be done again, and if any team can do it they can.

Sure, maybe they'll lose a game or two. Maybe they won't. I'm saying I like their chances.

The nature of a prediction is not to be based in "reality." That's what makes it a prediction. It's isn't real yet. It does make for a topic of discussion on a football bulletin board that hasn't featured a ton of new topics lately.

Agreed, a total mismatch. I really do not see anyone beating them, they may have a bad game and beat themselves though.

Every team has a bad game. Examples:

a) KC @ Buffalo a few weeks ago.
b) The '85 Bears against the Dolphins. Either that one was rigged by the NFL as a story line or the Bears pooped in their hat. I think it is the latter, because as everyone knows, the Bears even had a music video on their side.

Indy will go undefeated this year, and the way the NFC looks, expect a real yawner of a superbowl.


That's my take......:)

Would he not be more of an idiot if Manning got hurt in a meaningless game once HFA is clinched?

It's a risk, but the choice is go 15-1 14-2 and go on to win it and in five years everyones forgotten who it was that won it that year, or, go 19-0 and everyones talking about those '05 Colts for the next few decades.

Howdy Mike, how's everything on the other side of the pond?

I hear ya' and you are right.
IMHO the best thing that could happen to the Colts is to lose a game in the next week or two, take all the undefeated pressure off, and then concentrate on winning the SB.

That's it there is history on the line here. They will talk about you forever if you go undefeated. Don't think for 2 seconds they don't know that and are gunning for it.

Dungy says he doesn't care about the undefeated season and will rest players once HFA is clinched. He is just the stoic prick to do it, too. Since you bet otherwise I can see where you might not agree with this.

Well I will hedge my bet by betting the money line on the Chargers game. I just don't see anyone else giving them a battle. He may rest the starters but I bet they will still play the first half just to keep the chemistry flowing. IMO it would be stupid to give them off one or two weeks off just before they already get a week off. 3 weeks you could certainly lose your timing.

They wont go undefeated because Manning has a reputation for choking when it matters.

Because of this Dungy isn't going to expose his team to injury once homefield is clenched, and he's not going to set Manning up for the biggest post season choke in the history of professional football.

Now if they had won a Superbowl already, then maybe they would do it, but as it is they aren't going to risk post season success by going into the post season with the undefeated monkey on their back... not when there is the easy out of resting the starters.

I doubt Peyton wants to go undefeated, the post season pressure in that situation, especially with it being him, would be enormous.

BIG_DADDY

Yup, this I believe.

Seattle is way overrated. Nobody is more overrated than the Jags though. After October 16th they only play one team with a winning record. The discrepancy in the difficulty of schedules in the NFL is retarded. They might as well match up the Jags with a few high school teams while their at it.

The Colts are a paper tiger. Yes, they have a stellar Offense, but their D is still very suspect in my book. Their winning record is a result of their cakewalk schedule. No way they go undefeated the rest of the season, it just doesn't happen.

Possibly, but the pressure to go undefeated in the post season is a monkey on the backs of every team in the playoffs not just the Colts.

It depends mostly on Seattle. If the Colts are still undefeated going in to that game, they will have wrapped up home field. If the Seahawks are still fighting for it, Seattle will win, even if the Colts play their first string.

That, plus games against Jacksonville and San Diego, makes me think they'll lose at some point.
