I can’t believe that coach Jim Caldwell pulled Peyton Manning and the other Colts starters from the game in the THIRD quarter of today’s game against the Jets. What the hell coach???!!!
Has nobody learned ANYTHING from all the years the Colts would rest players and then proceed to LOSE in the Divisional Round of the playoffs?!
In the fierce rivalry that is the Colts-Patriots, the only thing BB&P (Belichick, Brady & Patriots) could not do was to run the table and go undefeated. So why then, when it’s so close within their grasp, would the Colts NOT go for it? Because you’re afraid Manning will get hurt?! Oh please! He’s Mr. Invincible who’s NEVER missed a single game in his career. No, what I think it is, is a rookie call. Don’t risk the players because IF they do get injured then you’d never be forgiven.
This is reminiscent of the Prevent Defense. Like I always say, when you please not to lose the game, you’ll end up not winning the game… At least BB&P had the guts to go for glory…
I could forgive a coach for going for it and getting a player injured. That’s the risk you run. If the Colts end up NOT winning the Super Bowl this year, it would be hard to forgive the coach for giving up such a golden, once in a lifetime opportunity…
