So obviously the colts struggled without Manning today and will continue to do so. I'm pretty sure this is not a shock to anyone, except perhaps the colts fans (not even the team themselves though).
I wanted to mention this just because I thought it was kind of funny. The colts fans have bitched and moaned for years about how Peyton should ALWAYS be the MVP becasue he means so much more to his team than any player in football, etc, etc, etc
Well, as soon as the news came down that he'd be out for a while everyone started saying how they are maybe a 6 win football team. Ok, no problem with that from anyone right? Well, colts fans got all pissy and started complaining about how that isn't fair and they are still a good team without Manning and so on.
Um, colts fans, you can't have it both ways! He can't be the most important player ever and then you're shocked when people start picking against you! Which is it you are a good team regardless or Manning means everything to you? Just thought that was kind of comical and figured I'd see if any of you had noticed that too!!
I have nothing against the colts, their fans, or Manning. In fact, I happen to like Manning and have always thought colts fans to be pretty reasonable and have had no problem tolerating them. Then again, I really only know a couple and haven't come across too many otherwise.
Sorry, as I'm sure yinz guys have noticed I can't say anything in a few words, but thoughts?
