    ????

    Luck is 8th in the league in passing yards. Ahead of such names as Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers and Eli Manning.

    I'm not saying the guy is a top 5 QB or anything but he is just a rookie and certainly looks to be headed that way. And I've already seen more out of him than I have any QB we've had since McNair.

    I really hope you guys don't seriously believe the league is actively helping the Colts win.

    They should vow to fix replay errors after that call. One of the worst reviews I've ever seen. Just plain awful.

    If that had been Locker instead of Luck and we got robbed like that, people here would STILL be bitching and moaning about it. And still saying the Colts are just lucky. And still saying the refs are fixing games for the Colts. :rolleyes:

    Not sure why you don't think its possible that they are. The league is not far behind the NBA in terms of .. preferential treatment.

    What evidence do you have to support that?

    I'm not saying there aren't media/league darlings. We all know it's a fact that there are. But to think the league is rigging the game? No, I do not believe that. And not sure why anyone would believe that, besides sour grapes.

    go jump on the colts bandwagon if you love defending them so much...
    they seriously get stuff handed to them... even when they lose, they win (for example, last season)
    and even if they don't get a call, they try to make it a rule where it is in the future to make the colts look better (ok so that may be a stretch...) but you never saw this sort of outrage when the texans got a gift wrapped TD when the knee was CLEARLY down... i only saw maybe one article saying the "MIGHT" change the rule on what Schwartz did...

    LOL... classic lame goTitans poster reply.

    Just because I'm not some conspiracy theorist and can accept that the Colts are actually a good team, I should somehow turn in my fan card and go be a Colts fan?

    Solid rebuttal. :clap:

    Wait a minute.... what exactly do you mean by this? Are you talking about how they were awful and ended up with the #1 pick, which they used on Luck? If so, how on earth can you blame the league for that? The Colts were the worst team. They got the #1 pick. That's how it works.

    Very unfortunate for us and the rest of the division, but it was hardly some conspiracy.

    You're right, RollTide is hung up on stats, but in this case he's right. They're a bad team in disguise.

    Colts earned every win they got.

    I am also shocked though, that they are a 9 win team. They never looked like it for 1 second in either game vs the Titans. They look only slightly better than we do.

    They have had an easy schedule and have capitalized. The only "unwinnable" game they won was against the Packers. The bears and Pats were automatic losses. Might as well have forfeited.

    We, however... find ways to lose games we should win.. like both Colts games, Jags, etc..

    Speaking of your easy schedule... look at the Texans. They get our weak @#$es twice, the Jags 2x, and soon to be the colts twice. We saw that they got bent over when they finally have to face a legitimate NFL team last monday.
