    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>SAN DIEGO - To their credit, the Colts didn't spend any energy after a hard-to-swallow overtime loss campaigning for a change in the rules for the extra period.</p> <p>They called heads, the coin landed tails and they needed to make a stop, take the ball away or force a punt in order to give their offense another chance.</p> <p>They failed to do so and suffered the consequences.</p> <p>"It's hard for me to get into right now," Peyton Manning said. "Obviously you like to win it in regulation when you have the chance, because you know once you go into overtime that that's a risk, that you might not get a chance on offense. They won the toss and our defense fought hard all day, played tough. There were some penalties, some tough breaks that went against us and got them into field position,"</p> <p>Said center Jeff Saturday: "We all know the rules before you go in. You can't second-guess it now, they got the coin toss and they made something happen with it. Had we got the coin toss, and scored a touchdown you wouldn't expect them to cry about it either, that's the rules of the game and they took advantage of the rule."</p> <p>Cornerback Tim Jennings' defensive holding call as he worked against Chris Chambers gave the Chargers a key first down on the only drive of overtime.</p> <p>"Questionable, that's all I can say is questionable," Jennings said.</p> <p>What if you won the coin toss?</p> <p>"We've got the MVP on our side," he said. "We didn't look at it like that. We felt like as a defense we've got to go out there and stop them and get the MVP back the football. We just didn't get it done. If we won the toss, we had a better chance of winning."</p>

    he only thinks the MVP is on his side. The only side Gayton is on is his and Chesneys everyone else is expendable
