Colts are 6-0, Peyton Manning looks like he's going to win another MVP award, and their offense is just hitting on all cylinders.
How would you feel about our team if we win against the Colts? At the end of the season, we'll remember that we had a chance to beat Minnesota but it still counts as a Loss, no such thing as Moral Victories. I fiend for a win.
Do I think we win? No, but how would I feel about the team if we did? I would probably feel like we could beat any team left on the schedule. Right now I don't feel like that.
If we beat the Colts, it doesn't mean anything. It still means we are not in the playoffs. The Colts could lose to us because they ARE 6-0, they can lose to us because we take a swing and knock them out, they could lose to us because Manning gets hurt, they could lose to us because Manning plays like crap, they could lose to us because WE put on a clinic.
At the end of the day, we still need to win the week after to keep moving up in this league.
