No, The Colts won’t go undefeated this season

Just got through watching The Colts in general and QB Peyton Manning in particular finally beat the New England Patriots 40-21 at home and saw that monkey which Peyton’s been carrying around for years finally climb down off his back and scamper into the locker room with about two minutes to go in regulations.

This really was the proverbial “Game Of The Year” so far, with The Colts riding a seven game win streak (they’re still undefeated at 8-0 at this point in the season) and New England trying to get one of their patented Super Bowl runs going and on paper it was a golden game, with QB Tom “The Chessmaster” Brady of New England squaring off against Colts QB Peyton “The Master Samurai General” Manning but unfortunately this was a football game and not a prize fight so Manning was able to pick New England’s defensive secondary – which has been decimated by injuries this season – apart almost at will and after The Colt’s fourth touchdown it wasn’t much of a game, kinda boring, almost like most Superbowls are.

But to the point of this post, NO!!!, The Colts at 8-0 will not go undefeated this season, for all their talent there’s less than a two percent difference in the best and worst teams in the league, okay, excepting The Cleveland Browns and The Houston Texans, and some team at some time during The Colts schedule is going to gamble on blitzing Manning since they figure they’ll lose anyway if they don’t and if they have an outside lineback with 4.3/40 speed who can bullrush from the outside of the offensive line, then Yes, if this speculative team can rattle Manning just a little and get a couple of sacks and a handful of hurries, then Yes, The Colts will be defeated and the old Class Of 1972 Miami Dolphins team, the only team ever to go undefeated in a single season, will pop open the champagne once again that Sunday when it happens.
