The Colts’ have awakened a sleeping giant in the New England Patriots, but as for the Colts themselves, well it’s a bit of a different story. The Colts have struggled in each of their first three games of the season, and Andrew Luck has looked anything but “elite”. Now I know this is a Boston site and I shouldn’t really be talking about Indy, but what’s more Boston than putting down other teams, and well that’s exactly what we’re going to do today.
So the Colts’ are 1-2 and have looked every bit the part of a last place team. Do I feel any sympathy for them? I’m not going to even answer that question, but what I will say is that I hope their misery continues. They pulled the biggest cry-baby move in the book and tattled on us so they deserve everything that’s coming to them.
I’m not saying we did or didn’t cheat, I think Judge Berman made it clear what really happened, but bear with me here, just say they did, you don’t tattle on us. Little wussy babies do that, and so for that reason I have no empathy for the Colts, or their fans.
And as for Andrew Luck, he is nowhere even remotely close to the king, Mr. Tom Brady. As much as I hate SportsCenter, they did send out an interesting tweet yesterday. The tweet stated that since the beginning of last season, no other player in the NFL has committed more turnovers than Andrew Luck.
Boy that doesn’t sound too elite to me. Normally, elite quarterbacks don’t throw interceptions every third drive, and lose back to back games to the Bills and Jets. Yes, you read that correctly the Bills and Jets. The Patriots have screwed with Luck and the Colts so badly that they can’t even play against any of the AFC East anymore.
Now I know people are going to be reading this and saying to themselves, “man, this kid really cannot stand the Colts”, and while that is true, don’t get me wrong, I want the Colts to do well. I want to have a rival with whom the Pats can go back and forth with. I want to have, maybe, one close game this year to keep things interesting, but sadly, we’re just not going to get that from this Colts team.
They just don’t have it, and frankly I am insulted that people compare these two teams as if they are similar. Name another “rivalry” in sports in which one team constantly beats the other by at least 20 points each game. It doesn’t exist, and you know why? It’s because that wouldn’t be a rivalry. I mean, the Colts right now are closer to a bye week for us than rivalry game.
Indy is just a flat out soft team. For god sakes, their coach was crying in the locker room after a week 3 win against the Tennessee Titans. Not exactly the model of mental toughness right there. Give them credit though, somehow, in their feeble, weak, little minds, they still feel as though they can rise up and knock off the champs.
After all, the Gore and Johnson signings are working out so well for them. For those who couldn’t tell that was in fact sarcastic. Both men look like they’re on the wrong side of 50, and for a team that needs the most out of its’ players, they need these two to step their game up substantially.
Unfortunately for the Colts, we aren’t the Titans. If Luck plays against the Pats the way he did against Tennessee, it is not out of the realm of possibilities to think that Brady and the offense could hang a 60 burger on the Colts in their own house.
These two teams are just so far apart right now, and, while I would like a legitimate rival, I cannot say I am not happy about it. As the season progresses I only see the Pats rolling on, while the Colts continue to fall behind.
