Can't Run, Can't Win....By Thom Abraham

Dare I say it again? If you can't run the ball, you can't win. The Colts had nearly 450 yards of offense Sunday against the Chargers, but only 44 on the ground and now San Diego, not Indy, is off to New England. Oh, I know, you're thinking, "Who throws it more than the Pats?" But New England ran it for 145 Yards Saturday night, a 5.0 yard per carry clip.
Many questions now remain for the Colts. Should they have shut it down in the final week of the regular season? Did Peyton Manning choke? Will Tony Dungy return? Is this the end of the Colts domination of the AFC South?
Still, it was amazing to see San Diego, minus Philip Rivers, LT and Antonio Gates, go down the field for the winning touchdown and their first road playoff win since the 'Winslow game' in '82 against Miami. Congrats to beleaguered Norv Turner as well. He has keep this team together and has them playing ferocious football. It was also 'Football Justice' since some very questionable calls went against them in the 1st half....
BTW.....they're going to get ripped in New England...just thought I'd add that...

I was SHOCKED, shocked I tell you that Jim Sorgi was relegated to holding the clipboard with the game on the line. I thought Dungy was playing to win this game just like he did in week 16. Well at least all his players will get their much needed rest now that they are done.

As a Browns fan, I am glad to see both Tennessee and The Colts lose each of their first playoff games... Sweet, sweet justice...

As a Brown's fan, you should worry more about why you crapped the bed and lost to Cincy rather than what the Titans or Colts did in the playoffs. Heck, if the Titans hadn't gotten hosed by the lack of camera angles in the first Chargers game, the final game with Indy wouldn't have even mattered! But you should be used to disappointment by now....YOU ARE A BROWNS FAN!

As a Titans fan Im glad to see The Colts start to fade a bit. If Dungy heads south like rumors are saying I hope He takes a year off and Comes back strong Coaching for A team in the NFC. Love to see Him take Manning with him to his retirement home in Florida and they could sell Sony Tv's at an Electronic Store and Open up a Strip Club with tight security, This way Pac Man will have a place to hang out at night between jobs at Walmart and McCdonalds I would love to see Pac Man with a head set on !! Yes Sir Mr. Pac Man I would love to Super Size That!!!!!
