    Question

    As I sit here and watch the Colts drop back and pass on just about every play, why does the media not rip them for not having a balance attack? They seem to embrace how the Colts run up the score on most teams, much like we used to do, but some how is great thing when they do it.

    Re: Question

    No one's gonna rip the lack of balance when you're winning, and no one should have a problem with an offense scoring 45 when your defense gives up close to 30.

    As far as the Rams go, the lack of balance criticism is warranted when you play a team with close to the worst rushing defense in the league and you don't run the ball and get your butt handed to you.

    No one really says anything when you win. But when you lose, put on the Kevlar.

    Plus, Peyton Manning is a media darling. For whatever reason, he has reached that untouchable status for the media. He is papalcy for sports reporters.

    The media loves to hate Martzie. They love the humble side of Tony Dunge!!

    Martzie does not have a humble bone in his body when it comes to game planning, play calling and taking any critisisms that go along with that and game management.

    I think if Manning, Favre, and Vick robbed a bank together, the surveillence camera footage would make ESPN's Top 10 plays on SportsCenter.
