    What an awful game... and not so much because the Colts won, but... 7 field goals?

    Good to see Ratbirds lose...Colts wont make it through the playoffs...but at least we can shut the freaking stories up about McNair and the former Titans getting to the Superbowl again.

    And Dierdork is THE worst NFL commentator on the payroll. When McNair ran that one time and DeDork say "take that Vince Young...he is not the only QB that can run the ball" or something to that affect I was ready to puke. He is an idiot.

    Now it's becoming clear why the Titans got rid of
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mcnair. He has played Poorly Today and the Ravens really need someone like Vince Young

    I didn't think it was awful. Just some great defense & a heavy dose of McDoh! $12million down the toilet for nothing.

    Billick is giving some crap in locker room right now about playing like men, he's so proud to be associated blah, blah blah blah.

    Stevie- you should have stayed a man. Too bad about ELIMINATION.

    What a turn around for the Colts. After giving up tons of rushing yards just a few games ago to the Jags and us, they turn it around for the playoffs. LJ gets around 50 yards, and Lewis gets 50. Now that's some defensive adjustment.

    Sec..

    Sorry i took so long to tell you how wrong you are about this expansion team thing. I didn't notice your post.

    Does an expansion team still retain the same players under contract as before? The ravens were the same players with the same contractual obligations that they had as browns.

    Same owner, same players, same team. Who gives a rip if they changed their name, logo and colors? Modell was nice enough to let cleveland keep the rights to the name but how in the hell does that make them expansion? They played in the same division with the same schedule.

    An expansion team is a new franchise with no existing players under contract. There is an expansion draft where each team has to make a certain number of their players available to the expansion team to draft as their own. What is more is that an EXPANSION TEAM is called that because they EXPANDED the league by adding a team. The number of franchises remained the same so the very meaning of the word does not apply here.

    If the ravens were an expansion team as you suggest does that mean the browns when they came back into the league were not one? The browns did not come into the league for 3 seasons after that. What do you call a browns franchise that did not exist from 96-98? An existing franchise?

    When the browns entered the nfl in 99 they entered as an expansion team with an expansion draft and no existing players. They had a new owner who never owned an nfl team, new players. Are you going to suggest that the team with an existing owner, existing players was expansion but the team with a new owner and no existing players was not?

    I'll hang up and wait for your answer..

    Colts defense..

    I guess they had gotten to used to sitting and watching manning et al win games for them and just didn't play as hard as they should have. Now they can't do that. This is a very hungry team we can never forget that.

    Give credit to dungy a future hall of fame coach for getting this team ready. It's hard to imagine them losing the way they are playing..

    No that can't be, we all *know* defensive adjustments don't work, you need the addition of superior talent at multiple positions, just ask Schwartz.......

    ...and once again, RollTide shows why he was just voted "Best Informed Titans' Fan" for the fourth year running. :))

    Can't remember a less boring all-field goal game. Man did both those QBs suck, or what? But there was some defense and some hitting out there.

    Now the Pats gotta win tomorrow. Who's with me???
