WARNING: When talking about Texas Driver's, Kollin tends to cuss a great deal so please excuse my language. My intensions are not to offend you, unless of course you're one of these assholes who don't know how to drive.
Well its time for me to bitch about more stuff...yes, my life is quite simple at the present time but theres always a need to bitch about something...see, what goes on in my head is like 90% bitching anyways so why not share it with all of you!?
Intro To Driving in Texas
I shall tell you now, this will be somewhat long...i like driving...i like driving a lot...put the music on and go...but its not that simple here in Texas...when you get out on the road, you're taking a huge risk here...the chances of you getting into an accident i'm sure are pretty damn good...driving here really pisses me off...even when people aren't even on the road, it pisses me off...i shall elaborate
People in texas don't know how to: merge
Half of the reason why driving on the highway is absolute hell is because people do not know how to merge...when you're about to get on the highway you don't slow down, you don't hit the breaks, you don't screw around...what do you do? floor it and pick a spot to fit in...no, can't do that...i mean that would actually be good...can't have that...i mean you're probably going from (assuming you drive the speed limit) 45 to 65 mph...usually i go 5 mph over the speed limit...so i pretty much go from 50 to 70 in that little stretch of road where you're going to merge onto the highway...its not hard or anything but every asshole living in texas doesn't know how to do it...first of all they're probably going like 40 on the side road...second of all, when they supposedly speed up to go onto the highway, its really slow...40...hmm guess i should speed up some...45...i'm not even gonna pick a spot to fit in cuz hey i can just force my way in cuz i'm an asshole...50...getting pretty close now...55...oh all of the cars in that first lane are now changing lanes cuz they can see that i'm an asshole who doesn't know how to merge...60...and now i'm on the highway, forced myself in there, going below the speed limit, and i'm pissing off the remaining cars behind me in this lane...a job well done texas driver...what they need is someone to pull them over, pull them out of their car, and beat the livin shit out of them...THEN maybe they'll start thinking "hmm maybe i should learn how to merge?"...god people...press down on that little fuckin peddle that makes your car go faster!!!!
People in Texas don't know how to: accelerate
Alright...you come up to a traffic light thats red...you're behind someone, no problem...it turns green...now your instant thought is "green = go"...but not in the minds of Texas drivers...oh no, green does not mean go in their minds...green means: look at the green light and ponder whether or not you should go...then when you've decided to go, slowly and very gently move forward so you can make everyone behind you mad...whats the big deal?...why can't you just push down on the little fuckin peddle that makes you go faster and accelerate from the start...you don't need to be Dale Earnhardt here but geeze, ACCELERATE!!!!...they go from 0 to 55 in 3.5 minutes...these are also people who need to get their ass's kicked
People in Texas don't know how to: deal with 4 way stops
Its quite simple really...you come up to the stop sign and stop...then look to see if anyone got there first...if someone did, then you let them go before you...then you go...sounds simple, right?...oh nooo, we have to make it complicated...here in Texas, we stop at the stop sign and just sit there for no fucking reason...they just sit there...theres like cars coming in each direction...it was obvious who got there first...but no, everyone stops and sits there...hmm who should go first?...then right when someone gets up the courage to go first, another person does the same, then they all stop again...my god people...what the hell is so complicated about this!?!?!...oh and i absolutely love when i'm coming up on a stop sign, its totally obvious another person got there before me, and i stop...they're still stopped...and like 2 or 3 seconds go by...i'm sitting here thinking "hello? you stopped there way before me, go you little Texas idiot"...then they finally get up the courage to go...and of course, cuz they're a Texas driver, they go slow as shit...really drives me insane
People in Texas don't know what a slow lane and a fast lane is
In Colorado, no matter what road you were on, if it had two lanes there was a slow lane and a fast lane...the lane on the right is a slow lane...the lane on the left is a fast lane...Texas drivers need to learn this...Texas drivers never go the speed limit...its quite rare...if they do, they're probably from another state...so lets say the speed limit is 55 mph...they'll either go below 50 or above 60...the above 60 is usually some punk high schooler who thinks hes a badass in his little piece of shit civic...i have no problem with them because a) they're not in my way and b) well i don't really have a "b" cuz as long as they're out of my way, i'm happy...so on 242/college park i get stuck behind people going like 45 or even 50...but its not just that...its two cars, going that same speed, in both lanes...so its impossible to get around them...what the hell is your problem? first of all, the guy next to you is pretty much in your blind spot and second of all, you're an asshole who is going below the speed limit...get the fuck out of the way!...i mean really...the fast lane would be for people either going the speed limit or going faster than the speed limit...the slow lane would be for people going the speed limit or going below the speed limit...its quite simple!...god...i mean, i'm usually going 60 mph on that road...when i'm not paying attention to my speed it usually drifts upwards into the 60 - 65 mph range then i bring it back down to 60...unless of course cops are present then i go the speed limit...but really, unless the cop is an absolute asshole, he's not gonna take the time to pull you over for going 5 mph over the speed limit...and when i see that some asshole feels the need to go faster than me and is behind me, i'm usually nice enough to either speed up and let him pass me (assuming someone is next to me) or i'll get in the other lane...is this really that hard?...slow lane, fast lane...and it IS okay to go the speed limit...i'm not in any hurry usually but geeze, don't piss me off by going slow as shit...if you really can't handle the vehicle, go home and park it shithead...bottom line: either go the speed limit or 5 mph above it, otherwise, get the fuck out of my way
Actually On The Highway
Oh my god...you're asking to get killed if you do this...you're saying "i want to die today" when you go onto the highway...you got people coming onto the highway who of course don't know how to merge (see the above section on merging)...then you have people who of course go like 5 - 10 mph below the speed limit...then you have people who go 10 - 15 mph above the speed limit...then you have those assholes who not only feel the need to speed a great deal, but cut everyone off in the process of doing so...then the same thing happens here, people clump together and its a pain in the ass to pass them...you have semi's not paying attention and are on the verge of crushing you...you have people who, and i fuckin love this, feel they need to BRAKE on the highway...you don't brake on the highway...you want to die? don't brake on the damn highway unless you absolutely have to...all you have to do is let off the gas...i'm pretty damn sure your vehicle will slow down...its a death trap...i get on there when i have to go to the mall or places in that area...i'm starting to get more comfortable with it cuz you have to think that every person around you wants you to die and so you want to get away from them...haul ass onto the high way and avoid any signs of someone wanting to kill you...its hard...i'm always like stressed out, both hands very tightly gripping the stearing wheel, my eyes never blinking...in the back of my head i'm praying to god that i'll survive...i've seen many an asshole on the highway but fortunately i haven't been in an accident on there yet
People coming off the highway
Yeah see they don't slow down usually or that much coming off the highway...and when the side road has like 2 or 3 lanes, they'll just swerve across all 3 lanes without looking...oh yes, i've almost been hit several times because of this...yes they have the right of way but the rule simply is you have to look before changing lanes and you have to wait 3 seconds to cross the next one...oh no, in 3 seconds, they'll have been across all 3 lanes and have you successfully driven off of the road...i always get in the farthest lane away from the highway when they're coming off of it and yet i'm still in danger
Cutting people off is okay in Texas
Oh yes, people do it all the time...i mean you can just see it happen like 20 times in a day...they'll be in the left lane...in the right lane, theres really no space to get in there, the cars too close together...whats the Texas way every one? "Force your way in!"...yes!...so without warning, they'll shove themselves into the right lane and force the person behind them to slam on the breaks...they'll cut in front of you no matter what...if i see any signs of an asshole about to cut me off and theres a car right in front of me as it is, i speed up and close the gap...hell no, you're not getting in front of me asshole...you wanna get in front of me? you're gonna have to do it over my dead body
This brings me to my other point...you know how you're in a lane, its quite clear that lets say, the right lane ends...theres signs that point this out...traffic is heavy...so shitheads who don't wanna get into the left lane right away, drive all the way down there in the right lane, ahead of everyone and expect you to let them in...heres where i become a major asshole...unless you didn't try to cheat your way in here, i'm not letting you in...you are not going to get in front of me...and i don't care what the cost is...you can hit me, you can cuss at me, you can flip me off, i'm not letting you in...its gotten to that point too...you know how they'll get really close to your car...i hug the bumper in front of me...every inch that person moves up, i'm right behind them making sure i never leave a space open there...and some shithead is like right next to me getting all pissed off cuz i won't let him in...i'll even look him in the face and mouth the words "you're not getting in here shithead"...and i'll shake my finger at them indicated that unless you have a death wish, i'm not letting you in...they give up eventually...probably move in behind you...i'm dead serious here...if i want you in front of me, i'll let you know...i will make some kind of hand signal, i'll open a space but if you think for one minute i'm gonna let you in when you're being a shithead and cheating, hell no
The Lane That Isn't
Brings me to another point...a lot of times right next to the left and right lanes, theres a fair amount of space to fit a vehicle...however thats not an actual lane...Texas Drivers however think that is a lane...so you'll get assholes who of course cheat by driving down there and want into your lane...once again, unless you're properly merging or turning into my lane, you're not getting in...theres no fucking way on this fucking planet you are getting in front of me...i'd rather jump off the Brooklyn fuckin Bridge than give you the satisfaction of being in front of me...then theres people who don't even want in your lane, they just wanna use that side part as a lane...i was driving down 1488 a while ago and this asshole is doing exactly that...driving down that side part there not even wanting in...it was like solid traffic but he made absolutely no attempt to be in a lane...so hes like driving right next me...after about 3 seconds of not making any attempt to get into the lane, i get pissed...so what do i do? make it known that i'm pissed at you...so, and this is very rare, i honk on the horn and wave my hands at this guy...hes right next to me...without rolling down my window i mouth the words "hey asshole! get in the fuckin lane!" and of course point behind me indicated that the shithead needs to get behind me...what does he do? feel he needs to argue his point...no sir, you do what i fuckin say...so i honk again and by now he can probably hear me say "get in the god damn lane!!!"...what does he do? try to get in front of me...oh hell no, you get behind me mother fucker...so at this point i pretty much own the fucker cuz if he doesn't get into the actual lane, i'm gonna do my best to embarrass the shit out of him and make his life a living hell...so he better get in somewhere behind me...after 3 attempts at getting in front of me, he finally gets the picture and someone lets him in behind me...don't fuck with me...don't even think for one god damn second you can fuck with me, its not gonna happen...when i want you to do something, you're gonna do it...that was interesting experience but bottom line: you're not getting in front of me unless i say you're going to and if you think for one second you're gonna get away with this "lets just illegally drive on the side of the road" thing, it ain't gonna happen...just cuz i look like some punk teenager doesn't mean you can just do whatever the hell you want to me...i'll put you in your place shithead
Honking My Horn
I don't like honking my horn...its loud and its rude...unless i absolutely have to, i'm not gonna use it...if you're really pissing me off and you're not paying attention THEN i'll use my horn...i've only honked my horn maybe 4 times in the 5 years or so that i've been driving...to be honest, it partly embarrasses me to use it cuz well, the attention is on me along with the shithead doing whatever...so i avoid using it...so unless someone really pisses me off or if i'm not in the mood to deal with these Texas drivers, i'm not gonna use it...it takes a great deal.
Traffic Signs in Texas
They're horrible here...when you actually have to merge left, the sign indicating you need to merge left, is in some horrible spot you can't see...so pretty much, your lane ends before you can prepare for it...you're just coasting along listening to music then "oh shit, the lane ends!"...or when you're going from one major highway to the next, wheres the sign saying that?...i've seen several spots where theres no sign or its a shitty place...i'm directionally challenged as it is, we don't need to make things worse on me here...its almost to the point where its like you miss your exit or you just barely realize your lane ends and THEN theres the sign saying "Oh, forgot to tell you, that lane ends. I hope you made it!"...geeze...what the hell...and you know its some asshole who gets paid hourly who puts up these signs...the least you could do is put it somewhere where people can see...or better yet, put it up there period...my dad actually got a ticket for turning illegally or something but he didn't see the sign...took it to court and won...thats telling you something assholes
Traffic Lights Part A
The traffic lights here suck...In Colorado it would turn green for a certain amount of time and then turn yellow and then turn red...here it turns green and stays that way until someone on the right or left of you pulls up to their red light...then, assuming its not a major intersection, it turns yellow then red...well on the other side, it then turns green...if you're a guy still driving down the road and see this, you're not getting through this light...unless you were stopped in front of it or had just stopped in front of it when it turned green, you're not getting through it...unless of course you speed up a great deal...i hate that...why can't it just stay green for a little while longer?...it does in Colorado...why not here?...i mean thats half the reason why people get killed here...cuz it turns green and you see it and you're thinking "fuck! i know i can make it! *floors it*"...and then it turns yellow "come on baby! stay yellow!!!! *floors it even more*"...BAM its red, you finally make it through there (can't slow down, you're going too fast) but of course running a red light and smashing the shit out of the car who goes through the green light on the other side...i mean come on, if you saw the light was green and it really wasn't that far away, you should be given enough time to go through it...not here...so that brings me to part B
Traffic Lights part B
Everyone eventually runs a red light...its gonna happen but it should only happen like once or twice in 30 years or something...here you see people running the red lights allllll the time...especially on left turns...if you've even been in this state for 30 minutes, you know how the traffic lights are...you shouldn't be having this "running the red light" problem...but no...and they don't just run the red light sometimes...they run the red light with the red light being red for a fair amount of time (lotta red there)...so when it turns green you're taking a risk there cuz some asshole could be running the red light...and its a damn good chance...so i make sure nobody's flooring it right when their light turns red...but i mean, come on...what the hell is wrong with you? you can't make it to the store 2 minutes later?...you can't handle being at work at 7:58 am as opposed to 7:55 am?...stop at the red light!...especially on turns...oh this drives me insane...people will turn left in front of you...you're thinking "alright, my light will turn green soon"...it turns green and what happens? 1-4 cars will still be turning left in front of you...uhh hello? its red asshole...you had to slow down to turn as it is, you can't possibly stop when its red?...one of these days i'm just gonna fuckin lay on the horn when someone does this...they do it all the fuckin time...its like "oh, no its okay for 4 cars to run the red light"...ugh...i can understand if like the light JUST turned red as your car was JUST starting to turn...cuz theres that little delay there before the other light turns green...thats okay...i've done it, everyone has...its okay...but when you have time to stop for the red light and it was quite obvious the light had turned red, you need to stop asshole...irritates the shit out of me...hello? pay attention shit heads!! my lights green, your lights red, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO!!!
Traffic Lights part C
Okay, i go to Pete's or Ashley's quite a bit...at least in the past couple of weeks...so usually when i'm on my way home its anywhere between 12 and 2 am...well nobodys on the road at those times usually...so when you pull up to a light here in Texas and its red and theres nobody coming on either side, you're gonna be waiting a long time...i fuckin hate it...nobodys coming on the left, okay...nobodys coming on the right, okay...nobody else is stopped at a red light...you're the only person there...and after a few seconds, no progress, what am i thinking?...CAN I GET A GOD DAMN GREEN LIGHT ALREADY!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!...oh no, you'll be waiting there until someone happens to stop at one of the other lights that are red and that could be a while because nobody's up at these times on a week day...what the hell?...i mean i've gotten use to it now...i'll stop, turn on the light in the car, check out my CDs...clean up a little bit of trash...rearrange my change or whatever else is in there...mess with the air conditioning...maybe look in the mirror, make sure i don't look too terribly weird...look at the light, meh still red...put in another CD...meh i'm not really in the mood for that one...put in another CD...*shocked face* what is this i see!? somethings happening!...holy shit!!! we need to alert the media!!! the light is going to turn GREEN!!!!!!...i mean, i'm so happy to see that my light turned green i'm on the verge of having an orgasm...what the hell?...fuckin traffic lights!
Cutting you off - ish
So you're driving down the road, maybe going 60 mph...you see some car come up to there red light, wanting to turn right...which you can do, its legal...but you're going 60 mph...you're coming up on them quite fast...what am i thinking? "oh don't you dare...don't you even think about it asshole...you stay right fucking there!!!!"...what happens of course?...the stupid shithead pulls out in front of me, forcing me to hit the brakes...and most likely, the shithead won't even go faster than 5 mph below the speed limit...and there probably wasn't anyone behind me either...goodness...asshole!!!...you can't wait 2 seconds!?!?...i'm thinking "*slams on the brakes* you fucking asshole!!! 2 god damn seconds!!! you could have waited 2 god damn seconds!!! oh great, you can't even accelerate!! we now have to go 5 miles below the speed limit!! thank you, shithead!!!"...grrrr!!!!...pisses me off...when i'm gonna turn right on a red, i stop, then make sure that if someone is coming i'll have enough time to accelerate and make it so they don't have to brake because of me...is that so hard to do? aparently it is...stupid assholes...and its probably some little piece of shit wanna be car/motorized skate board...its just like "uhh hello? big fuckin SUV barrelling down the road going 60 mph!!!! you can't fucking see that!?!?!"...its not some pretend car...my SUV is a no shit SUV...its not even one of those "cross between a caravan and an SUV" like SUV...no, its a real fuckin SUV...4 door SUV...something you can CLEARLY see...unless you want your brains splattered all over the fucking road and your mom crying "oh if only johnny wasn't a dipshit", i suggest you wait 3 seconds...oh and i just absolutely love it when its some big fuckin concrete truck..."hello? shithead? obviously that big fuckin truck of yours isn't gonna accelerate very fast! stay the fuck out of my way!!!"
Some of the Roads in my subdivision
Okay, so some of the roads in my subdivision don't have the lines indicating this is the left side and that is the right side...cars on this side go this direction...cars on the other side go the opposite direction...but its pretty easy to see that you drive this way, another car drives the other way...and you gotta see that you need to make room for the other car...people have SUCH a problem with this...again, i have an SUV...i real fucking SUV...i suggest you give me the proper room for me to get this SUV down the road...i'm not asking for more than half of the road...i mean i'll give you plenty of space...oh noooo...people just have to be huge fuckin assholes and pretty much drive down the middle of the road...PAY ATTENTION YOU SHITHEAD!!!...how can you NOT see my SUV???
Parking on the side of the road
People really don't know how to do this...they park their vehicle so far into the street it causes traffic problems...and yes, they had plenty of room to put it more into the grass (talking about my subdivision again)...stupid assholes...you can't take 5 seconds of your time to reposition your car so that the chance of an accident decreases by 60%??
Parking in a regular parking lot
This is also a challenge for Texas drivers...we can't just park...we need to make this difficult and piss someone off...they never park straight...its like wayy over to the left, way over to the right, not all the way in the parking space, all the way into the parking space on the other side...they just can't get it right...i mean, i'm not fantastic at parking but these people...what are they on drugs?...you don't have a damn semi!!!...and of course, people squeeze into these little tiny fuckin spaces...when you get to your car its like "hmm so i guess we're gonna have to cut a hole in the top to get in here"...when its too small MOVE ON!!!
So the other day i was driving down this road next to the wal-mart...so theres a lot of areas where cars can go onto this road and off looking for a parking space...this road has only a couple stop signs, at this particular moment i'm talking about, the nearest stop sign doesn't even matter...so i have the right of way driving down here...this asshole, jumps out in front of me, forces me to slam on my brakes, then flips me off telling me i was in the wrong...he flipped me off!!!...he was the shithead who jumped out in front of me!!!!...less than 2 seconds after that, driving down the same road, another bitch flips me off...what the hell?...aparently, i'm suppose to stop where there is no stop sign and let this bitch go in front of me...uhh no princess, you're stayin right fucking there...so i totally had the right of way both times and i got flipped off
Turning a Corner
Nobody in Texas knows how to turn a corner...you slow down going into a turn then you speed up going out of a turn...what do these assholes do? slow wayyyy down going into a turn and slow down some more going out of a turn...i'm sitting there thinking "holy shit! is he able to turn like that!??! he's taking that turn so fast!!! is it gonna roll over!?!? how on Earth can he be this good!!"...ughh...what is so hard about taking a corner? geeze...i mean its almost painful sometimes seeing these people take a turn...they have absolutely no idea what they're spose to do...they act like they're driving a semi or something...i'm not asking you to be a fuckin race car driver here but learn how to take a corner shitheads!
Conclusion to Texas Drivers
You people are fucking insane!!! If you do NOT know how to operate your vehicle properly, you need to take that piece of shit of yours home and park it!!!!...how did these assholes get their licenses? HOW!?!?...who on EARTH would give some of these people a license!?!?...did i miss something when i got mine? do you like win money if you piss someone off enough or kill someone?...its like "oh, you drove shitty on your drivers test, but we're gonna help you out today, we'll give you this special offer...the more people you piss off, the more points you get!"...more like a license to kill...people are insane here...my father whos driven all over the world and even in places like new york city, los angeles, chicago, the autoban in Germany, says theres only ONE place worse than Houston Texas when it comes to driving...thats somewhere in Asia...but geeze!!! even compared to places like new york city and L.A.!??...you've GOT to be fucking kidding me
I know you're thinking "man, this guy has some serious road rage"...but no, i don't...you drive here and you'll see...you're taking your life into your hands here...stay away...stay far far away!!!
Okay, i could have talked about something other than that but once i get started, it just doesn't end...its madness here...i was going for being humorous there but all of that is the truth
**Bonus Football Predictions (sorry for not adding this sooner)**
New York Jets AT Pittsburgh Steelers
All the Steelers need to do is what they've done all year...run run run and occassionally pass when they absolutely have to...the QB (no, i'm not even gonna begin to spell his name) does not need to put this team on his shoulders...RB's Duce and the Bus need to put this team on their soldiers...pound the ball, control the clock, slowly move down the field, put up some points, let the defense do the rest...the only time they need to pass is when they have to...and then they can use play action...the defense is damn good, i have no doubt in my mind they can stop the Jets offense
The Jets need to take the Steelers out of their game plan...like i said, the Steelers are going to run run run and occassionally pass...the Jets need to score early and often forcing the Steelers to pass pass pass and occassionally run...we're talking about a rookie QB here...he's not spectacular and he's going to make mistakes...if you force the QB to put the game on his own shoulders, the Jets will have a chance to win it...offensively, the Jets need to throw it up to their two best WR's and give the ball to the number one rusher in the league, martin...their defense is good and if they can take the Steelers out of their game plan, the Jets have a chance.
The Jets are good and i was impressed with their victory last week but i don't think they'll be able to shut down the running attack of the Steelers. My Pick: Steelers 24 Jets 17
St. Louis Rams AT Atlanta Falcons
The Rams need to jump out to an early lead and keep it...they also need to control the clock...by doing this, you're forcing Falcons QB Vick to throw the ball...and you're keeping him off the field...the Falcons are all about running the ball but if you jump out to an early lead, they'll want to throw it and throwing it is not something they do particularly well...I've always thought Vick was overrated and he is...why? because he's not that great of a passer...on offense, just don't make too many mistakes and don't let the Falcons defense pressure QB Bulger or he'll make mistakes.
The Falcons just need to pressure and confuse QB Bulger...he's just like Kurt Warner, if you pressure him and confuse him, he'll make many mistakes...he's only good if he gets decent blocking...the Falcons defense is pretty damn good...pressure Bulger...on offense, they just need to stick with what's been good all year...run run run, occassionally pass...you have RB's Duckett, Dunn, and of course QB Vick...thats an awesome running attack...when you have to pass, give it to TE Crumpler, he's the man.
When Rams QB Bulger is on top of things and he's getting good blocking, its gonna be a long day for any team but i have faith in the Falcon's defense...I don't however have faith in the Ram's defense in stopping the Run. My Pick: Falcons 27 Rams 21
Vikings AT Eagles
I was very impressed with the Vikings victory over the Packers but the only reason they won it was because Favre crapped himself and the Pack had several injuries...fortunately for the Vikings, Eagles WR Owens is out, making things on the defense a lot easier...they have to focus on two key players...QB McNabb and RB Westbrook...if the Vikings can shut down Westbrook and do some damage against the Pass, the Eagles are gonna have a tough time...on offense, the Vikings are most certainly a powerhouse...great running game, great passing game...just don't make any mistakes...the Eagles defense is good but the Vikings are an offensive powerhouse.
The Eagles haven't played a decent game in 40 days or so...it'll be tough...on offense, they need to give the ball to RB Westbrook...he's the man and everyone knows it...they also have great TE's in L.J. Smith and Chad Lewis...now that Owens is gone, the WR's aren't so great...on defense, they just need to do the best they can...Culpepper to Moss is a deadly combination...don't put only one man on Moss or you'll be sorry...they need to pressure Culpepper...Culpepper does make mistakes...he's getting better at avoiding them but if you pressure him enough and confuse him enough, he'll turn it over.
Again, i was impressed with the Vikings victory over the Pack, and yes the Eagles haven't played a real game since early december but lets face it, the Eagles have been to 3 consecutive NFC championships without Owens, who's saying they can't do it again without him? My Pick: Eagles 31 Vikings 28
Indianapolis Colts AT New England Patriots
Ah what a great game...the Colts have the best offense i've ever seen...WR's Harrison, Stokely, Wayne...RB's James, Rhodes...TE's Pollard, Clark...and a very underrated OL...all headed by one man...QB Peyton Manning...you can't stop the offense...the defense on the other hand, sucks...why the Broncos couldn't man handle that offense is beyond me...the Colts need to focus on stopping RB Corey Dillon and force the Patriots into a passing battle...if they do that, victory is a given.
The Patriots are damn good at doing one thing: Winning...how do they do it? amazing game planning...they need to do just like what i said the Broncos needed to do...keep manning and his amazing offense off of the field...you're not gonna stop their offense but you can control the clock and keep them off the field...RB Dillon needs to get 150 - 200 yards rushing...some short passes when you have to...eat up the clock...as long as the Patriots keep manning off of the field and don't get into a situation where they have to go into a passing battle, they can win it.
This is a really tough choice...even though the Colts have a horrible defense, and Pats RB Dillon has done a great job all year, only something unhuman could stop this Colts offense...i still say the Pats are going to make it a close one just because they're so good at game planning. My Pick: Colts 38 Pats 31
