First and foremost, congrats again for SuperBowl XL. Y'all came into our house and spanked us like red-headed stepchildren. #6 seed beating the #3, then #1, then #2 seed ALL ON THE ROAD - AMAZING.
Now we Colts fans get to spend the next year feeling how y'all felt last year
I used the 1996 Broncos as my rallying cry this year. We Colts fans didn't have much reason to believe our window was still open after losing Edgerrin James, but our O-Line learned how to runblock, our O learned that a 3 to 1 pass to run ratio won't win playoff games, and we just ran for almost 200 yards against the BEARS!!!! This was a team that held Reggie Bush and Deuce McCallister to under ***50***!!!!!!!!
Anyway, the 1996 Broncos were hands-down the best team in the league, 14-2, #1 seed, and some #5 seed (Jax) comes to town and spanks them right out of the playoffs. They also had a QB who was known for not being able to win the big one. The 1997 Broncos won the SuperBowl as a WILD CARD.
So tell me Steeler fans - what do we Colts fans have to look forward to in the coming months????
