    Yeah, I remember the big deal Baltimore Raven fans made a few weeks ago when the Ravens hosted the Colts in a playoff game about how horrible the Irsays were in moving the Colts from Baltimore. Fine, Baltimore then welcomed Modell.

    Elway had absolutely miserable games in SB 22 & SB 24. Craig Morton (4/15 w/ 4 Ints) in SB 12 has quite possibly the worst QB line in any Super Bowl.
    The Dolphins' David Woodley in Super Bowl 17 has to be in this discussion:

    4-14, 97 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

    And 76 yards came on one TD pass to Jimmy Cefalo. And he didn't have ONE single completion in the 2nd half. Take out that TD pass and you've got 3-13 for 21 yards and 1 INT.

    Don Strock relieved him and went 0-3. So a combined effort of 4-17.

    I think Tony Dungy put it best yesterday at the Victory Celebration when he made the comment that not only was this team full of great football players but there was not one single individual on the team you would not be proud to have as a son. I think thats why Indy has really embraced the Colts over the past few years and have recently thrown the Pacers and their hoodlums under the bus, for years it was the other way around.

    Looks like the worries about this being a low rated Super Bowl because it involved 2 Midwest teams were unfounded. 2nd highest rated Super Bowl ever and 3rd highest rated TV show ever.

    Funny that you mention him. I was at the parade and in the dome yesterday and the one guy acting inappropriately was Mike Doss. At one point he jumped up to where the cheerleaders were and was....I'll say dancing very suggestively with them, and they didn't look too happy about it. I don't have kids yet so my buddies and I thought it was kind of funny but my wife didn't and I don't think it was appropriate for a family event.

    And the point you're making is why I've been very careful not to bash the Bengals (atleast for the arrests). While I do think that the Colts' front office does draft players on character more than most teams, I really don't think you can always predict how a person is going to react when they get that money in the bank.

    Exactly. You can think that you are doing your homework and picking guys with character, but you really never know what might come. Look at Kirby Puckett. He was highly regarded for his great "character" and then you later hear about his dirty laundry and he suddenly he doesn't seem like such a great guy. A lot of people adored OJ Simpson until the double murder.

    When the Bengals brought the guys who have gotten arrested, I'm sure they looked at their character. It's just that some of these guys are the type where you couldn't have predicted that they would have gotten in trouble and the others are of the type where you are willing to chalk up their past issues to youthful indiscretion and give them a shot in hopes that they've learned from the mistakes. The Bengals got burned this year. Next year it will be someone else, and many of the guys who get arrested will be guys you wouldn't have expected.

    Mike Doss also will not be here next year and if he was not injured he might have already been cut. Dom Rhodes and former Bengal DeDe Dorsey also had minor incidents this past year but overall teams like the Colts and Patriots seem to do a better job dealing with and getting rid of questionable character guys.
