Being a Colts fan is often weird. In the last several seasons, darn few teams have had a better record. Yet there's only one Super Bowl ring so far to show for it. The primary reason seems to be the head coaches' obsession with "resting" their starters at the end of the regular season prior to the start of the playoffs. This has meant losing momentum, and usually, losing the first post-season game they play in. So it was gratifying on Saturday night to have victory after the same crazy process as before. It's also ironic that the Jets, a team let into the playoffs by the Colts literally throwing the game to them (can you say Painter as QB?), are now the team facing the Colts this Sunday in the AFC Championship. But, to quote the legendary Al Davis, "Just win, baby!"
