Great Start: Colts 1-0


Game 1: Colts 41, Saints 10. Not much to say about last night's game, except that it was AWESOME! We had a lot of fun watching the game and I love when the Colts win early in the week, then we just get to sit back and enjoy the rest of the games on Sunday. Sweetness.

The defense really does look good. This game should've been a shutout. The only points scored were off of a fumble return and a couple missed tackles on a punt return. I sure hope this is a sign of things to come and not just reflective of the fact that New Orleans played terribly. Seriously, that's the only bad news here. They did not play well at all. The good news is that we took advantage of that. I can remember the days when the Colts always seemed to play up to, or down to, their opponent's level. Not last night. And that's a good sign.

My favorite quote of the night? Madden: "If you start out holding him in a legal position, when it becomes illegal, it's still legal."

Notable Notes: Manning's 100th win (including playoffs). Brees almost sets the NFL record for least yards per pass (4.7?).

My hopes are high, dangit. GO HORSE!

Whatever. Colts will still be no match for New England. The NFC sucks and Brady would've done the same. Just wait. I can't wait till all you Colts fans shut up after November 4.

Just so you know, I'm just talking smack. Colts are cool.

Drew Brees is my fantasy QB. And he nearly breaks the record for fewest yards per pass. He earned me 1 fantasy point. One. Uno.

WTF.

Go Colts!

Pats fan- Phil, is that you?

Joel- Just wish you were here man. Maybe you'll have a reason to come visit again in February? (knock!)

Bri- Haha! That's hilarious. I had Reggie Bush and he earned me a grand total of 3 points. Go Saints!

I watched the game in Vegas and let me tell ya... Colts were well represented. I was in total shock how many Colts jerseys there were and I don't even think I saw a single Saints jersey...

Go Colts..
