Colts take first lead since October 9


In this week’s PFT Picks and again on Friday night’s NBC SportsTalk, I declared that the time has come for the Colts to win.

Rosenthal disagreed with me, and Peter King didn’t simply say “you’re wrong and here’s why” but “you’re out of your mind.”

While the Colts may not pull it off, they can at least be proud of their efforts for the first time since October 9, against the Chiefs.  (Thanks to Elliott Kalb, Football Night In America editorial consultant, for that nugget.)  In that game, the Colts were up 24-7, before blowing it down the stretch.  Since then, the Colts haven’t blown a lead, because they haven’t had a lead.

For now, the lead is 3-0 in the second quarter.  And so on the same weekend on which the Colts moved to 14-0 in 2009, they could avoid falling to 0-14 in 2011.

    Pathetic. Simply pathetic.

    The Polians and Caldwell all need to be fired immediately after the season ends.

    I think caldwell should get 1 more year. If you are a coach, and find out your franchise player will miss the season just before the season starts, it would be hard to suceed

    The Colts didn’t have the balls to go for a perfect season in 2009

    Just like they didn’t have the balls to try to win once they knew Manning was lost for the season… instead they tankedthe season and get the NEXT franchise QB.

    Even with the win no one can “catch” them – they literally control their own destiny if they tank the remaining games like they did with most others this season.

    Caldwell should be fired because he obviously hasn’t done a god damn thing and it was manning holding up the team.
