Colts in control

The Indianapolis Colts, showing no rust after not trying to win in nearly a month, have rediscovered the gas pedal in the first half of their divisional playoff against the Ravens.

Indy leads at the break, 17-3.

Quarterback Peyton Manning has completed 21 of 29 passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns, including a risky three-yarder to Reggie Wayne as the first half was coming to an end.

The Colts defense has been the difference so far.  After yielding 87 yards on Baltimore’s first possession, the Colts have clamped down, holding the Ravens to nine net yards on three three-and-out drives in the second quarter.

    The Colts are outplaying the Ravens but how the NFL can watch only two seconds go off the clock (from 0:09 to 0:07 at the end of the half) on a play that took a minimum of four to five seconds is sad.

    I hope the Ravens come back. When Florio picked the Colts I bet every thing on the The Ravens. He’s 0-6 so far, I couldn’t lose. Uuuuuuuuuuuuuggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Colts are so fu#in boring to watch. Every game they play is the polar opposite of the Cards/Pack game we saw last week.
    They drain the life out of any team they play as well. The Ravens are usually an entertaining team to watch, but they ran into the Indianapolis Caldwells today.
    Do some smack talking, show some emotion! I guess its all about personality, and the Colts have the personality of their coach – none.
    The Raiders may lose, but atleast they make it interesting.

    Why can’t the Colts refs call games fairly, it’s getting to the point that I can barely stand to watch Colts games.

    Ravens doing a fine job of shooting themselves in the foot. Indy doing a better job taking advantage of it.

  6. tigerlilac says: Jan 16, 2010 10:30 PM

    The Ravens are doing nothing on the offensive side of the ball but the refs are calling a Polian special. Freeney takes himself out of the play with an inside move and the refs call a holding penalty on Jared Gaither. Gary Brackett face guards Ray Rice, playing the man and not the ball, and there is no call. These are not major blown calls but they add up. A typical Colts’ game.
    Wow, they just called Reed’s second interception pass interference on Cory Ivy. Ivy had inside position and Clark initiated the contact while Manning threw into double coverage. I need to see it again to be sure but the refs have lost any benefit of the doubt.

    Time the game’s outcome was no longer in question: 10;34 pm.
    Actual time game will end: Around 11:15 pm.
    Time Dan Dierdorf will perform fellatio on Peyton Manning: 11:20 pm.

    @tigerlilac
    There were actually 11 seconds left on that play. Clark was tackled at 11 or 12 seconds and they called timeout but the clock ran to 9 seconds. If you watch during the timeout the clock changes from 9 to 11 seconds and the play is snapped w/11 seconds left.

    The refs are so ridiculously biased against the Ravens. I hope Peyton Manning gets his back broken. The dude looks like a reTARD. The refs are pro-Brady and pro-Manning. The calls that are made against the Ravens are not made against the Colts and Patriots. The league is getting crooked.

    Thanks. I missed that change.

    Tick Tock Tick Tock…Ravens fading fast.

  12. tigerlilac says: Jan 16, 2010 10:57 PM

    8mm, Dierdorf is insufferable.

  13. lebowski says: Jan 16, 2010 11:03 PM

    Listening to Dierdorf talk about Manning is almost as bad as listening to Gruden drool over Favre.

    Joe Flacco looks like Herman Munster’s youngest brother.

    hey 8man….fxxking funny dude, really fxxking funny!

  16. midwest says: Jan 16, 2010 11:26 PM

    The game turned on a personal foul call against Ray Lewis at the end of the first half. How the refs could make that call is beyond me. Total crap call! Instead of 3rd and 12 from the 20 with 15 seconds left, it became first and goal.
    That call changed the entire outcome of the game, by far.
    On top of that at the beginning of the second half, Melvin Bullitt did the exact same thing during the Raven’s first possession, but the flag was nowhere to be seen!
    It sickening how much the NFL caters to Manning and the Colts.
    Bill Pollian was actually able to get the rules changed after the Pats continuously smacked the Colts around a few years back. He cried about the pass interference rule, and the NFL caved, making Manning that much better.
    Total crap!
    The NFL should be ashamed of themselves.

    Anybody got a fvespot i can borrow. I need to pay my bookie. Florio screwed me again.

  19. boltschick says: Jan 16, 2010 11:42 PM

    PLEASE CBS TAKE DIERDORF OFF THE AIR!! HIS BIAS IS DISGUSTING. He also called the Ravens stupid which is unprofessional. Their penalties were not due to stupidity but effort.

  20. dextermorgan says: Jan 16, 2010 11:51 PM

    It would be really cool to see a key penalty called against the Colts……you wonder if someday a referee (of course he will be forced to speak the truth) will tell us why this never seems too happen and then it will all make sense!

    Seriously? I get sick of the stuff sometimes too, but to hope someone gets their back broken? Ridiculous!!! I hope when you get sober you have a few brain cells left so you can realize that you’re a jackass! Ridiculous!!!

  22. KOM2K10 says: Jan 17, 2010 12:46 AM

    Yea, you guys are right… Ray Lewis didn’t smack his helmet right against Austin Collie on that play. Oh wait… he actually did. Which is the definition of a “helmet to helmet” hit. And there was clear passing interference on the 2nd interception. And the refs probably made Ray Rice and Ed Reed fumble, and made Joe Flaco throw 2 interceptions. Those damn refs!
    By the way, there were multiple facemask and late hit out of bounds penalties that were never called against the Ravens. And in case anyone didn’t know, the Ravens were the most penalized team this year. But your right, the Ravens actually didn’t commit any of those penalties… it was probably a year-long vendetta the refs have had against the Ravens all year long… not that they have no discipline…

  23. Chimeric says: Jan 17, 2010 12:59 AM

    The refs make the same number of good and bad calls for/against every team in the league. People only complain when it’s against a team they don’t want to see win. The Colts won this game fair and square and, despite your complaining, don’t get the kind of “star treatment” players in the NBA receive. It’s all in your perception. Grow up.

  24. Ufanforreal says: Jan 17, 2010 1:29 AM

    LOL , cry babies.

  25. Roboto says: Jan 17, 2010 7:03 AM

    WTF? You Ravens fans need to grow up. Your team is getting drubbed. But, instead of holding them accountable, you start blaming the refs and Dan Dierdorf, of all people! LMAOF! Why would you give that @$$ that much credit? He’s not on the field dropping passes, committing senseless penalties and turning the ball over.
    I’ve said it before. Lose like a man! I’m tired of fans of the losing team blaming the refs. As a Steelers fan, I’ve been putting up with it since the 1970′s. Face it, your team just wasn’t good enough. Just like all the teams that went up against the Steelers throughout the years and got their doorknobs blown of.
    DAMN IT!!

    Indianapolis police are looking for a man suspected of stalking Peyton Manning’s residence. The man was found masturbating in Mr. Mannings trophy room. He then fled the scene on foot. He is described as in his late 50′s to early 60′s, heavy set, with a mustache, dimple chin, and a severe lisp. Anyone with information on this case should call the Indianapolis police department.

    ————————–
    Wow…another cry baby Raven fan!!! …either that, or you had a wager on the Ravens, in which case you get what you deserve (you don’t wager against Peyton Manning in a Prime Time game under any circumstance).
    In any case, Gaither CLEARLY grabbed Freeney’s arm on that play. If the ref DIDN’T call that, he would have been fired!
    …and perhaps you should learn the rules of the game before ref-bashing. FACE GUARDING IS ONLY ILLEGAL IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!!! If no contact is made (and there wasn’t any contact made on Rice by Brackett), then IT’S NOT PASS INTERFERENCE!!!!
    Oh, and Ivy clearly interfered with Clark on Reed’s interception.
    You’re 0 for 3…the refs didn’t lose or win this game for either team, the superior team won the game.
    …and I’m very, very far from being a Colts fan (Packer fan if you must know). I’m just sick of reading comments from whining Ravens fans/Colts haters who insist the refs favor them. You people are a complete joke.

    The Raiders may lose, but atleast they make it interesting.
    Uhhh…public school grads, going to the Super Bowl and winning makes football interesting, not a bunch of freaks from the Bay area who are thinking more about having some Vito time (Sopranos) after the game …..

  29. BoMeister says: Jan 17, 2010 9:29 AM

    Ray Lewis took yet another dirty hit on a defenseless receiver, being the undocumented murderer that he is. That is not football. Cheap shots work well for undertalented and overpuffed morons like RL. Dan Dierdork is a retard, who did nothing but Raven praisesong in the first half…he’s a moron who does as he’s told by the network.

  30. BoMeister says: Jan 17, 2010 9:37 AM

    I also like the whining of the Ratbirds fans who cry foul that the Colts moved to Indy….forgetting that bastard prick Modell stole our Browns to baltimore with skullduggery….gimme a break!

  31. Roboto says: Jan 18, 2010 5:05 AM

    BoMeister, I’d love to bitch slap you. The Steelers have 6 rings. How many do the Clownies have? How many rings does your sorry team have? Yeah, 13-6 is a real blow out. You’re are a sack of pus!
