if the bears make the superbowl with that pathetic excuse for a quarterback, it will be a sad day...

I doubt 3 teams from the AFC West make it to the playoffs. The Broncos and Chargers face each other one more time, and the Chargers and the Chiefs play each other one more time. Besides that, the Broncos are now starting a rookie QB. I really think the last WC spot will come down to either Jacksonville or Cincy.

Somebodys got to step up on the Colts defense for them to win the Super Bowl especially if they play the Chargers with Ladainian Tomlinson.

Dallas put a hurting on Indy a few weeks ago and I think they will do it again. Tony Romo is the real deal and has energized that franchise. They are the NFC's best offense. They have two quality RB's and a great receiving corps. One of the 2 or 3 best defenses in the NFC, if not the best. They held 10-0 Indy to 14 points. Best punter in the NFC. The only question is the kicking game but Gramatica should be fine. Right now there just isn't a better team in the NFC.

If Cincinnati beats Baltimore on Thursday, they have a real shot at the WC. If not, it's Chiefs and Broncos.

I predict that the Cleveland Browns will not make the playoffs. So also missing will be the Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals.

Your predictions look reasonable on paper, but you don't seem to be allowing for many/any upsets of the top teams along the way. Teams like Jacksonville and Tennessee look like a "W" at first glance, but it won't pay to take them lightly, and the top teams will trip up somewhere between now and the end of the season. I guess what I'm saying is that I think the win totals for your four AFC division winners and the Bears from the AFC are inflated.

Oh, and TS, didn't you mean that Ind would go 15-1?

Well getting Mike Doss, Bob Sanders and Gary Brackett back from injuries will help. Bob Sanders, our best defensive player, has only played in one game (Vs. New England) and I think our defense is a lot better with him on the field. Mike Doss, our second best defender hasn't played since week 7, forcing a corner back to play safety.

Obviously the Colts D is still going to have it hands full with LT even with all of those guys back, but I think they can do a good enough job to give the offense a chance. What I am worried about is San Diego's 3-4 defense. It killed the Colts last year and the Cowboys played it this year and killed the offense. I am hoping that Peyton and the coaching staff can come up with a game plan, the emergence of Addai as a solid back could make a difference.

So there is your Colts report, I know everyone is very interested.

lol yeah my bad...

I think Dallas will cool off some once playoff/super bowl time comes. I'm doubting a team can hold Peyton to 14 pts again... but who knows?

I'm not as big on SD as most people are though. Raiders almost beat them

Doss is out for the season and honestley I wonder about Sanders coming back. The Colts defense really is bad but if they come up with some turnovers and make a few stops then I think this is the year for them.

I see you like the Raiders' chances of turning things around. I will call my bookie. :p:

Selig, you're overrated the Colts. I like SD over Dallas as well. Bias? Sure. But if I wasn't bias I could go Dallas over SD or Dallas over NE. Put Manning on the Bears and they're my pick.

There are three concerns for Charger fans: 1) Their defense 2) their cold first and 3) Shottenheimer.

The first shouldn't be that big of a concern as they've been missing three impact defensive players who will be back shortly.

The second is stumper. They might just need to review their first fifteen plays.

The third is a big concern to me. I just don't think Shottenheimer is a Super Bowl coach.

Whats going to happen if its the Colts vs Chargers which coach will blow it? As a Colts fan the only team that scares me is the Chargers, but i think its the Colts year, or atleast I hope.

With Mr. Manning leading the team, no year will be the Colts year.;)

Agreed. If they win tomorrow night, they will be in a pretty good spot.

Why hate on Peyton? I dont know what team you cheer for but unless its the Patriots, I am sure you would trade your quarterback for Peyton. He is a hard worker, a class act and a good citizen. He just needs a little luck and the Colts are superbowl bound.

They don't have Vanderjagt to lose the game (every single year). Manning hasn't been himself in the playoffs in the past few years, but it always boiled down to a missed FG (so it seemed).

Once again John Elway says hello. It only took 15 years before people stopped saying that about him. Elway holds the record for game winning or tying drives in the 4th quarter with 47. Peyton already has 28, I think he'll get that record, but he's not good in crunch time, right?

Notice the wink face. I was just giving you a hard time. I've lived in the Indy area for 5 and a half months and in that time I have noticed that Peyton is about 3 steps above God for most people.:)

As for my team, I am a Jets fan. Chad is also a hard worker, class act and a good citizen but you are right, if I could trade him straight up for Manning I would. And Chadwick is my favorite player.

Once again, the wink should show that I was just teasing. Also, Peyton is GREAT in crunch time as long as it isn't January.:)

Give the man a defense and he will win a Super Bowl. Until then I can't see the Colts winning it all. Take Manning away from the Colts and they are probably a .500 team. I know if it weren't for Manning the Jets would have beat them this year.:)
