The better team doesn't always win the game.

their defense couldnt have done much more. look at the offensive stats for the colts and the fact that they kept such an offensive team out of the endzone. this loss lands squarely on the offense.


i still believe the chargers are the best team...they just caught a bad break today. just the way it works sometimes.

I too still think they are the best team. In fact, the only team that CAN beat them is the Chargers. :-b

Not that it matters, but I'd still say yes. I haven't yet worked out how we actually managed to win that one.

I watched enough sports to know all to well that the best team, the most athletic doesn't always win. That poise and experience count and we didn't show that yesterday. To play one of our worst games of the year when it mattered most. I've been a Charger fan since seeing them in '68 at my 1st NFL game. Today is a day that all true fans should rally around your team and wear their colors with pride. I know I will. Thank you guys for a great season and the promise of many more to come. As someone who is closer in age to their coach than the players themselves I do feel for Marty, regardless of his shortcomings. I don't think anyone wanted it more than him. Every true champion must taste the sting of defeat and decide for themselves which path they choose. I'm hoping this lights a fire in them that will lead them out of darkness.

I'd argue that having poise and experience fall under the category of 'Being a good team.' That said, the rest of this:

This is the mark of a true fan. You take your lumps with dignity, and never stop believing or showing pride in your team.
