    Colts V Jets

    I know we got into it a little in the other Colts thread, but I figured I'd start a new thread. I'm really excited for this game, I guess just because the Colts are back in the AFC championship for what seems like the first time in forever.

    I've been doing something lately I don't usually do, which is listen to ESPN radio. Tedy Bruschi was on Mike and Mike (I think their show is the worst of all ESPN radio shows) and I am really growing to dislike him. Listening to him talk you'd have thought that Peyton was the rookie QB and Sanchez was the seasoned veteran. So yeah, he picked the Jets to win. I think even if I wasn't a Colts fan I'd root for them just so Bruschi would look stupid.

    I'm not a Colts fan despite my location(or perhaps because of it but that's another matter) but I agree.
    They were talking about things they did to confuse Peyton 7-8 years ago or things the Steelers did in 2005. I wouldn't be shocked if the Jets win on Sunday, but if they do, it won't be because Peyton is fooled by 8 year old tricks.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    Yeah, I think that's where I am as well. The Jets are good team and it's very possible for the Colts to lose, but I don't think it's because Peyton will be rattled.

    How ironic would it be if the Jets won after the Colts laid down for them to let them in the playoff? That said, I still think the Colts win.

    Re: Colts V Jets

    I think if this game is played 10 times, the Jets would win once or twice. I honestly think Saints/Vikings is the tougher game to predict (although I'm taking the Saints).

    I think Manning and the Colts have enough experience with blitzing defenses that they should be able to put enough points on the board to win. And it won't take much. With the speed of the Colts defense, I think the Jets will be lucky to top 14 points.

    With the way the Colts D contained Ray Rice (who is better than Greene and Jones), I don't see how the Jets score more than once or twice, unless they happen to get a pick-6 TD on defense. If Brackett and the middle of the Colts D-line and LBs can clog the middle of the field, Sanchez and the offense are in serious trouble.

    Prediction: Colts 17, Jets 10

    This is false. The Colts did not lay down for the Jets to make the playoffs. They laid down to rest their starters and get healthy. The Jets happened to be the fortunate opponent that week, but they still had to beat the Bengals the following week (who also rested some starters).

    It wasn't about wanting the Jets to make the playoffs, it was about wanting the Colts to be healthy and rested when it was time for the playoffs.

    Re: Colts V Jets

    Here are my thought right now about the game

    -The Jets are riding one heck of a momentum wave right now.
    -The Jets OLine is playing amazing right now.
    -The Colts were able to shake off some rust against Baltimore and should be clicking.
    -Revis will take away Wayne forcing Collie and Garcon to beat them.
    -The game may come down to Clark making plays.
    -Sanchez is very over rated as a QB right now.
    -Stop the Jets running game you win.
    -Colts go up 2 scores and the game is over.

    Re: Colts V Jets

    And let's not forget that the Colts are undefeated this year in games when the starters played the whole time. It was about 5 weeks ago that the Jets lost at home to the Falcons in what was their biggest game of the year at that time.

    I hope the Colts stomp the Jets so we don't have to hear from Rex Ryan the rest of the playoffs.

    Rex Ryan alone would make the two week buildup before the SB nearly unbearable. I already have to turn the channel anytime he speaks. He'd get much worse if his team wins the AFC Championship.

    Is it me or is the national media praying for a Jets win?

    I don't know about that. Ordinarily, a NY team in the championship would be great for the national media. But Indy has Manning and he's one of the most popular players in the NFL now. He does about a billion commercials so it certainly can't hurt to have him in the Super Bowl. I really don't think any of the national media - with the exception of Mike Greenberg - will be too sad about any combination of the 4 teams in the Super Bowl. Even though New Orleans is a smaller market, they can talk about Katrina and how they had to play games in San Antonio. Minnesota has Favre - need I say more?

    Re: Colts V Jets

    I think it will essentially be a replay of the Colts/Ravens game.

    It will be a rough go, but Manning and co. will scrape up enough points against a tough Jet defense. Manning won't pull a Phillip Rivers.

    And I think Manning will keep the Jets defense on the field long enough to not allow the Jets ground game to get rolling.

    The wild card in this is the Jets are hot. They could pull off the upset. But I don't think so.

    I still say Colts-Saints in the supe. Favre can get rattled. Brees can't.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Re: Colts V Jets

    Matt Hasselback's wife made some good points the other day in that the Jets scheme is essentially the same as Baltimores, so this gives Peyton two consecutive weeks to work a defense. Peyton Manning + any type of advantage = win

    Personally, I think Peyton is so good that he will get his, no matter how good the defense is. I also think that the Colts D should completely shut down the Jets lackluster offense.

    Re: Colts V Jets

    That is why I thought Palmer would be able to beat the Jets beacuse he has done well against that type of defense...even in the bad years...Palmer has beaten his defense.

    I hope that Manning does beat it...and the Colts beat them soundly.....It is amazing how a team goes from being underrated to so overrated that you really start to hate them.

    They act as if the Jets defense has developed a new magical way of playing football that is impossible to defeat. Also... Revis is always putting his hands on a WR.....and yet never is called for illegal use of hands...even when he sticks his hands in front of the receivers face mask. He is very good but he seems to have some of these referees unable to understand that he has his hands on the WR and that is not legal.
