2 More Records, Gone

So we lost 2 records today.

1. The winningest(sp?) decade was of course our 90's 49ers, now it is the 00's Colts

2. Brandon Marshall took T.O.s record of receptions in a game with 21. This one pisses me off because Marshall "predicted" he would have a historical game....I think they game planned for him to hit this record, even at the cost of a win. And the Colts really could have put more defenders on him near the end because it was obvious Orton was ignoring other open receivers.

Well my thoughts are

1. The Colts deserve to have that record because they approach football in the way it should be played.

2. Marshall was going against a 5ft 8in corner. Why wouldn't you throw him the ball? Makes perfect sense considering his aerial ability and YAC.
I don't give a f**k
Who cares? We have 5 SB's 'nuff said.
BFD.............

No, I don't question the Broncos, I question the Colts. You are suppose to try to stop records from being broken as long as it does not jeopardize a win. Near the end of the game the Colts had the game well in hand and it was obvious the Broncos had given up on winning but were intent on Marshall getting the record. I think the Colts should have bracketed Marshall in his last few catches. They more or less let him get some easy ones at the end. It was kind of like Favre bending over for Strahan a few years back.

I saw his highlights and I'm not sure they really did let him. He was manhandling them all game. Aside from that though it goes to show you that the Colts are a well run franchise. They are prepared to let another team chase a record because it does not impact the game or their win. That's intelligent.
well...look at the bright side...

we should still have this record in hand!

18 consecutive road wins! ('89-'90)...both seasons we went 14-2...

in both the '89 & '90 season we won all of our games but loss 4 at home...

we loss to the Rams and Packers in '89 and the Rams and Saints in '90.

ah! winning!! those were the days!
What pisses me off the most is how we went from 114 wins last decade to 65 this decade. I guess the way this franchise has been owned and ran the last 10 years that shouldn't be all that surprising. But it is still a kick in the gut.
The Colts deserve it.
