I searched and searched and searched for anything to make Baltimore feel better on a sad Monday after a bad Ravens loss. Here’s what I’ve got.
The Indianapolis Colts are 0-2 after losing to the Browns in week two and their fan base is losing its mind. Colts fans are calling for Jim Caldwell’s replacement, calling Peyton Manning’s extension a rip off with his injury and writing off the season on September 19.
The message boards at the Indianapolis Star are hilarious. They’re exactly what a sad Ravens fan needs to see after the pounding Baltimore took in Tennessee.
On Peyton Manning’s $23 million contract extension

Captain Forehead, now that’s a good one. Manning did take the team for a ride with that new contract, but I can’t believe he wasn’t asked to take a physical before signing.
On the Colts going 0-16

I feel good about the Colts defence too. This guy isn’t expecting Kerry Collins to get sharp is he?
On being a diehard Colts fan

But I did “dust off” the bag I wore on my head for so many years before Peyton came. And I am putting it on right now.
From the Baltimore days? Really?
If we’ve got to suffer on week two, at least we can look to Indianapolis and laugh.
I heard Mr. Commercial was in Europe for stem cell therepy. That can’t be good! Lots of money for a guy with as many Lombardi Trophies as Trent Dilfer and Doug Williams!
Carl, you must’ve forgotten the 4 MVP’s. Don’t be a douche. Besides that, we all knew Manning wasn’t invincible and his time was coming. Unfortunately, this is the time. Although I’m not part of the Kerry Collins fan club, like most others, we can’t expect him to run an intricate offense with a few weeks of experience under his belt. Let’s not forget the shadow of the man he stands under as well. This isn’t a Kerry Collins offense, and I would rather lose an entire season without Manning than to have him come back too soon and have him in and out of games for the remainder of his career. Let’s all take a deep breath, swallow hard and expect the worst out of this season. I point the finger at management for not preparing for such an event and would’ve much rather seen what Painter could do when the pressure is on. PUT PAINTER IN. What’s the worse that could happen? Lose? LOL.
Gotta side with Carl, here. I bet you most players, inlcuding Peyton, would trade all four of those MVPs for one (more) Super Bowl. Peyton seems to get you close, but can’t take the final leap. And yes, he could seemingly leave the game with as many Super Bowl wins as Trent Dilfer. Nobody remembers who won the MVP award. Who cares?
