AFC Championship Blog

It’s halftime of the Colts v. Patriots game and a couple of things come to mind:

The Colts and their fans are whiny little female dogs…

I wonder if the Ravens could handle Brady…

The Patriots look incredibly well prepared. I wonder if Brian Billick could match wits with the other B.B. in a strategic football chess match…

Ok, it’s 2 seconds later and I’ve stopped wondering…the answer is NO!

Boomer Esiason and Phil Simms have man crushes on Tom Brady…

Does Peyton Manning have that look of “Here we go again” or what?

Forget about Champ Bailey. I am watching the best cover corner in the league tonight…

Wilkins just ran into a truck named Izzo.

(8:33) Colts have the ball on their first possession…

Gotta give the whiny little dogs credit for one thing at the RCA Dome…they can keep it quiet for the offense…

I think I just jinxed Assante Samuel…

At least I know the refs ignore the Colts holding against the Pats too.

Well, it looks like we might have a ball game after all…

(8:40) Nice drive little doggies…

QB sneak….TD…anyone else thinking Ben Roethlisberger?

(8:48) Maroney looks rather clueless tonight….

Who has bigger stones, Brady or Belichick?

Uh-oh! Three and out….

Clutch punt Sauerbrun

Patriots need a stand here….

(8:54)When did the Colts trade Marvin Harrison for Travis Taylor?
So let me get this straight….whenever a defender jumps but gets back, the offensive lineman can stand up, point and get 5 yards?

(8:56) I’m sensing a turnover….or is that wishful thinking?

Dan Klecko…are you kidding me? Wow, two games within the game…tied up! Time for a beer…or is that a shot. I must have moved from my lucky spot. The bee-atches are howling now!

Way to respond Hobbs!

You get the feeling the Patriots are setting the Colts up for a big first down play action pass?

(9:05) 2nd & Goal….How many in New England are ready to lynch Caldwell?

Looks like a touchdown….this game has the feeling of being a classic…

LOOKS LIKE AN INSTANT CLASSIC TO ME

Tony Lombardi said...

Are the Patriots going to stop the Colts any time in the foreseeable future?

Maybe not….

Saturday in the park…..Anyone bet the over?

Tony Lombardi said...

Need to run off about 6 minutes here Brady….

This isn’t looking good for the Pats. Their defense is wilting and the Colts defense knows that the Patriots want to take some time off the clock. Is Brian Billick sending in the plays now?

(9:29) Uh-oh again….

Tony Lombardi said...

(9:32) I’m looking for the Colts to continue running Rhodes and send more body blows into the Pats defensive line. Knock out punch to follow…

Obviously the Colts can’t dance. Trips on two consecutive plays. The turf monster helped the Pats there..

Why they chose not to keep pounding the rock there is beyond me…

Tony Lombardi said...

Ok Patriots…time to put something together. Throw to set up the run….Can you say Ben Watson (commercial) by the way, bring back the gecko…those caveman commercials are lame!

Tony Lombardi said...

Talk about a small window….nice throw to Gaffney. Not bad for a Florida receiver!

Here comes the yellow….the referees are too big of a part of this game….LET THEM PLAY!

Hey, I’m starting to son like the Indy fans.

Hey Caldwell…having problems with your contacts???

(9:42) Spoke to soon…that was clearly interference.

Somehow, that drive for 3 points feels like a failure…

Is it Jim Sorgi time?

Tony Lombardi said...

How many times is that play to Dallas Clark going to work? How good do the Ravens look in coverage against tight ends now…particularly AD and Ray?

Seymour was just tackled….no call….go figure. (whining again)

Where is Vanderjagt when you need him?

Tony Lombardi said...

Earlier this week I said that I didn’t care if the Colts won or lost. I lied!

(9:50) C’mon Hobbs….hold on to the ball!!!!

That a-boy!

Is a 5 minute TD drive too much to ask for?

Tony Lombardi said...

Good call…bad execution on Brady’s part…Gaffney had his man beat!

(9:53) Third and ten…not good!

WTF! Which BB is that down there? What happened to those cojones of stone?

Clutch kick for a rook!

Tony Lombardi said...

Nice stand Pats….outside of the one play by Hobbs, face guarding in end zone, these CB’s have played textbook coverage.

Brady won’t hold back….he’s going for the jugular!

(10:01) Clutch catch Watson!

Tony Lombardi said...

(2:17) Here it goes again...btw where is Marvin Harrison?

Tony Lombardi said...

2:00 warning! Shot anyone...brb!

Tony Lombardi said...

32 second half points says it all. Can Brady do it? I don't think their receivers are making enough plays. It's been a concern of this team all year. Rache Caldwell, you are due...but I'm not holding my breath....Hope I'm wrong...

Tony Lombardi said...

They deserved the win....I'm surprised Brady threw to the middle...another Super Bowl I will dread!

And again, I can't help thinking "what if?"

Could you imagine the scene at M&T if the Ravens had won?

Great play by play analysis. Being a sports official... I know all of the Acronyms. I've heard WTF ?? all too often.
What an exciting game to watch, and I'm sure it will prove to be more exciting than the upcoming Superbowl. I think that Rex Grossman will meet Dwight Freeney, up close and personal too many times. Colts by more than 7 points...
GREAT Job with the Blogs...
