So are any of you guys crying? :laugh:

This was the first game I've seen the Bears play all season and I must say they stink. The Colts could have and should have won by 4 touchdowns. Colts played very well, but the Bears looked weak to me.
I have to think the Colts, Pats, Chargers and Ravens are all better than the Bears.
No I'm not, the Colts winning it really doesn't have a big impact on me. Glad the Colts won, they deserved it, Peyton is great and I really like and respect Dungy, the Colts are a distance second to the Pacers as far as me being a fan.
edit: the crowds are forming downtown. If anyone does anything stupid - well I hope they get frostbite. Channel 13 is showing it
This is a really random question.
What kind of car did Peyton get? I saw it was a Caddy, but what model?
We were the favorites and should've been. Once we got our rhythm it was just hoping for no mistakes on either side of the ball.... especially big, momentum changing mistakes. And I think every one of us worried that the weather would be a factor (for anyone searching for an argument why the SB should be granted to Indy let us not forget that it doesn't rain or snow -inside- the Dome/Lucas Oil Stadium!)
It's almost a sense of relief now that's it's over. A sense of relief and pride. It's really been a journey and there were some serious speedbumps in that journey so it feels pretty good but (unlike the past few weeks where we were the underdog) this time we got it done when we were supposed to. This is a team we can be proud of.
And Jimmy Irsay is no Robert Irsay.

THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PAVING THE WAY: :thepacers
It was werid, I was so nervous that whole week leading up to the New England game. That week went by so slow. I had a lot of excitement. Only I kind of lost that excitment over the last two weeks, and these last two weeks went by kind of fast for me, IMO.
I think that part of that is, and I think that Peyton has said this a lot, that it's not the end of the journey but the journey itself that is so exciting. I agree with this. Against Kansas City it was LJ is going to run all over them, Indy shut him down. Baltimore was gonna shut us down and Jamaal Lewis was going to tear our defense up, we beat them. New England, the Colts were said to be unable to beat them in the playoffs, we beat them and we had the greatest comeback in AFC Championship histroy to do it. So we are in the Superbowl, I think you lose that excitment and it turned into nervousness and uncertainty. I know I was just relieved when they won.
WWWWWWHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! GO COLTS BABY!!!!!!! WE DID IT!!!!!! WHAT NOW BEARS?!?!?!?!?! BOOYAH!!!!!!:colts: :colts: :goponies:
We are the champions....of the world.
1. Assisted tackle on second-and-ten after a fourteen yard gain for first down, which eventually led to...
2. Solo Tackle on second-and-three to force third-and-two. Colts picked up first down on next play which led to...
3. Solo Tackle on second-and-five to force third-and-four Colts picked up first down on next play and scored the Wayne touchdown a couple plays later
4. Solo Tackle on Clark on second-and-seven to force third-and-two. Rhodes scored a couple plays later on a drive that Rhodes dominated
5. Solo Tackle of first-and-ten to force second-and-seven, which eventually led to
6. Solo Tacke on third-and-two; Colts missed FG on next play, the last play of half
7. Solo Tackle on second-and-four after eight yard gain and first down, which led to
8. Solo Tackle on third-and-eight after Utech gained eight yards and a first down, which eventuall led to a Colts FG.
Fourth quarter (last Colts' offensive possession)
9. Solo Tackle on second-and-ten after Rhodes gained fifteen yards for a first down, which eventually led to
10. Assisted Tackle on fourth-and-six after the Colts elected to not risk a blocked FG. This was the only time all game Urlacher helped get his defense off the field.
Rex Grossman may not have been very good, but he had a better performance than Urlacher. I just can't wait to see if Bears' fans are smart enough to figure that out or if they'll blame the "easy" (but misguided) target.
You know, the story of this game can easily be twisted this way: you take away the kickoff return on the opening kickoff and Thomas Jones' long run that set up the other Bears' touchdown, and this was a royal blowout. The Bears' should consider themselves quite fortunate they only lost by 12.
just got back from down town on the circle, man that place was rocking Woooooooo! :D
world champs baby! I love it
The Bears may have been the best in the NFC, but they didn't belong in the top-ten of anyone's power rankings. The NFC, especially after McNabb got hurt, was *that* bad all season long.
I didn't even think the Colts played especially well, Manning was clearly conservative because of the slippery ball and because the game was in-hand. I thought he'd try to stretch the defense more in the second half but he didn't even need to try to.
theres the paper that i had in those other pics, it looks a bit wore out because i was hanging out the passenger side window yelling and holding it up in below zero temps...so freaking worth it though :D
I was at that game and that is the best game (any year, any sport) that I've been to.:champions
I've been to a World Series game, Pacers playoff games, a NCAA regional final, a few college bowl games, some very exciting races at the Speedway and I'm going to frame my ticket and program from the 2007 AFC Championship. They will be replaying that AFC Championship game for years!!
I was quite happy that James Brown mentioned the 1973 ABA Champions as Indy's last major championship, instead of the usually-insulting statement that Indy had never had a champion before.
Thank you, James Brown/ CBS.
