Simply splendid

Now that was an arse-whuppin! The Colts were just dominated beyond belief today - while the "Not today..." Visa commercial was ringing in my head, I watched the Patriots smack Peyton Manning all up and down the field. More than a 2-1 possession time edge, over 200 yards on the ground, and no turnovers. It was beautiful. And hearing Rodney Harrison refer to the Colts' loudmouth kicker as "Vanderjerk" was just the icing on the cake.

Now, for the serious test next Sunday night in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have been very vulnerable over the last month or so, but they keep pulling out the narrow wins. Can the Pats knock them down? That's why they play the games. But based on the comparative track records of the two teams in big-game situations, I like our chances. A lot.
