It was the last game I attended before coming back to Argentina.
I’m still not over it. It still makes me mad.
Manning led the Colts on an incredible drive to bring the Colts back. The Jags responded with a hackneyed drive that somehow got them into range for a 50+ yard field goal. Scobee drilled it. It was exactly like when they did the same thing to Indy in 2006 in the Dome.
Reliving that game yesterday was my own personal hell.
I don’t think I’ve ever been quite so sick over a regular season loss before. I literally want to puke every time I think about it.
When the Colts were facing a 4th and 10 with the game all but over, I was busy hunting for a picture of an ugly dude in a bad prom tux. The picture for the game was going to be, “Lower Your Expectations”.
This isn’t the first time in recent memory the Colts have been 2-2. This isn’t the first time they’ve had some bad losses early in the season. It happened quite recently, in fact: 2008.
In 2008, the Colts lost their first two home games. Ironically, those losses contributed to the erroneous notion that Lucas Oil Stadium isn’t as tough to play in as the Dome was. They were the last two meaningful games Indy has dropped there (they did lose the Painter game last year). Given the fact that Indy opened with three of four on the road in 2010, I suppose you could argue that they are no worse off than they were before.
You’d be wrong. This is not 2008.
