WHAT THE F, I don't get it.......1st and goal, a half an inch away, and they throw the ball. If I were Edge I would sit out the rest of the game. The guy runs the length of the field and you can't reward him. F the Colts I hope Manning breaks his leg!!!
I feel so sorry for this guy, why even have him out there.

Damn right. I'm all for variety on offense, but is there a compelling reason that they won't ever even try to score a rushing TD. I think it's been 5 weeks now that Edge hasn't scored. I'm just another bitter Edge owner.

It is all about selfish Peyton Manning. This reminds me alot of Barry Sanders. He used to run for nearly 180 yds, but when they got down to the goal line they gave it to Tommy Vardel. After a few years of getting screwed over by Wayne Fontes Sanders said screw you and retired. I hope this selfish play by Manning comes back to bite the colts.

I hope that Edge and Marvin both leave in the offseason. Then we'll see how Payton holds up without the other big two.

Step 1: Phase Edge and Marvin Out
Step 2: Implode.

It's costing me dearly in the money league that I'm an Edge owner in. I've been losing close games where an Edge TD makes a HUGE difference. I can't believe they're not giving him the ball a couple of times when they are down inside the 5. Manning must be hell bent on breaking Marino's record. To make matters worse, My second RB in that league is Marshall Faulk...... who's also having a hard time scoring TD's. :~(

It's obvious that Peyton is looking out for #1 and going for the TD record this offseason, its pure selfishness in my eyes.
