We're sitting at 11-0 having already clinched the AFC South. The 2nd straight 17 point comeback this season, and 5th straight come from behind 4th Quarter win

what are your thoughts?

I think there the 2nd best team in the NFL ( behind sota), Colts have really been sqeezing out wins. look:http://www.colts.com/sub.cfm?page=schedule All of these games are very close andI think that when it comes playoff time,even after a great reguler season they might lose early because there not really dominating anyone.

You need to win close games in the NFL. You can't blow out every team you face. Winning close games really brings out the strength of your teams and shows how strong they are mentally.

In the Patriots 16-0 regular season they had to win a bunch of close ones.

The ability to win the close game is what makes good teams great.

If teams like the Jets,Ravens,Texans,and Dolphins and won all those close games they lost they'd be up there with the top teams in the NFL. The Bengals have won the close games and thats why they lead the division.

You have to be able to win the close ones

I think New England are still going to be the best team in the AFC come playoff time. Brady Moss Welker is near unstoppable

Weve been solid without being spectacular. I love the way we havent been giving up in games though. That NE game, down 17 points in the 4th, we could have easily just thrown in the towel and said thats enough. Yesterday as well against Houston, 17-0 down at one stage. 20-7 at HT. Keep them scoreless for the rest of the game until the last 30 seconds or whatever it was.
I think these games will serve us well going into the playoffs. Plus who would count against Peyton? Razz

if they keep having to come from behind every time sooner or later they are going to start losing those games.

you can from behind and still win games.

The Steelers in the playoffs last season had to come from behind every playoff games and in both big divisional games against the Ravens and ended up being Super Bowl Champs.

The Colts have just shown they're great at finishing games.

In the 1st Texans game the Colts got off to a schorching start and started up 13-0 and seemed to lose focus.

im aware of that but continually having to do it is not good.
its better if you can almost shut out the game so you might not need your starters out there.
if you need your best players out until the end of every game the higher risk of an injury which could stuff up the whole season.

imagine if the colts lost Manning...they would be fucked

I would rather be winnng games like this than shutting out teams continually. We have been finishing games well which will serve us good so that we know we aren't untouchable and that every game is losable (If thats a word). The Pats in 07 were putting 35+ week in week out against weak opponents and would have barely been in any close games all season which could have affected them in the post-season.

We have almost definately locked in home-field advantage which will be great playing at home where the game won't be affected by snow as much as it would in Foxborough. This means we wont have to rely on the running game as much which is slowly improving. Most of teh reason we have choked in the past is that we are too 1-dimensional but we could get away with this at home.
