AFC Championship: Indianapolis Colts Vs New England Patriots

The Colts visit Gillette Stadium tonight to take on the Pats.  Kickoff is 6:40 PM ET and airs on CBS.

The Colts are 0-3 in their previous meetings against New England.  QB Andrew Luck was intercepted 8 times in those three games.  The oddsmakers favor the Patriots by a touchdown.  They firmly believe that Brady and head coach Bill Belichick have a game plan that is unstoppable.

Granted, when New England defeated the Ravens, Belichick tied the great Tom Landry for the most postseason wins in NFL history and QB Tom Brady surpassed Joe Montana with 19 postseason victories.

Most oddsmakers and sports pundits favor the Patriots.  Their bias is palpable.  I will be rooting hard for the Colts because I can’t stand a cheater. 

Remember when Belichick was fined the league maximum of $500,000 in 2007 for what later came to be known as “Spygate”?  The Patriots were busted for illegally videotaping the defensive signals of opposing teams.  That practice had been in place for nearly a decade before Eric Mangini, a former New England defensive coordinator, dropped a dime to NFL Security.  Six of the tapes were handed over to Commissioner Roger Goodell and then were suspiciously destroyed.

They also violated the number of radio frequencies that could be used in order to steal signals from their opponent and then relay that information directly to Brady’s helmet.

I’m rooting for the Colts big time.  I like Andrew Luck and despise Tom Brady.  I detest Bill Belichick.  Why can't the guy find something more suitable to wear on the sidelines than a sloppy sweatshirt?  He’s worn a total of 8 different outfits every week for the past 10 years.  They say its “relaxed coach chic”.  I call it being an effing slob.

GO COLTS!

And because no football post would be complete without some pom-poms, please enjoy this photograph of  a lovely member of the Colts cheerleading squad.
