    That wasn't why he made the call. If we missed the FG, the Colts get the ball near midfield. If they had a timeout, they could take one shot down the field and call timeout. Making them burn their last one took away that option. Nice coaching.

    I'm not sure if making the Dolts burn their final TO was a carefully mastered plan by Jeff. He initially wanted to kick the field goal but then realized that if Bironis missed, the Dolts would get the ball back on the 40yd line. Too risky as the Dolts could and would be able to make a 25-30yd pass (considering how bad our secondary is) and call a TO and throw in Vinatieri to make the game winning kick.

    He therefore changed the plan and decided to punt. The Colts seeing this and having their defense already on the field with not much time to make the switch as they were not in PR position burnt their final TO. Jeff seeing this jumped up and said "what the hell, now that they do't have their TOs, go in there and take your best shot. Don't worry if you don't get it as they don't have ay TOs remaining."

    I'm not taking anything away from Jeff, but he's not Michael Scofield.

    Reading all the Colts quotes it really is great to see so many of them giving us credit & respect for the win.

    Even Manning who usually doesn't give props to other teams.
