You couldnt be more wrong. The Colts went to the SB that year and lost to the Saints, who of course, had also rested their starters.</P>
"The Colts suffered their first loss to the New York Jets, 29–15, a game in which Caldwell made the controversial decision to rest his starters after the team took a slim lead rather than keep them in to play for a chance at a 16–0 season. Indianapolis finished the season at 14–2 following a loss to the Buffalo Bills, in which they rested their starters with the stated purpose of having their team healthy for the playoffs. The Colts locked up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. They defeated the Baltimore Ravens by the score of 20–3 on January 16, 2010. The Colts defeated the New York Jets 30–17 on January 24, 2010 in the 2009 AFC Championship Game."</P>
I was referring to 2005 when they went 13-0 and stated openly that they would rest their players which is exactly what they did.</P>
They rested their players both weeks 16 and 17 and then got beat by the Steelers in their first playoff game.</P>[/quote]
You said they folded up their tent when they had a perfect season going. That is your original quote. The 2005 colts did not rest their starters until after they had lost to the chargers and were 13-1.
You're wrong any way you want to slice it.
