Perfectly debately

If it works, it is a perfect decision, if it doesn't work, it looks perfectly stupid.

Protecting Peyton matters more

Teams need to be smart and protect their valuable assets; the Colts did that.

Game dumped

This is Colts policy, but it never before killed an unbeaten season.

Momentum matters

By shutting Manning down too quickly, the Colts could be doing the same to their postseason dreams.

I'd rather play to win

Colts fans know the playoffs are coming, but still felt pretty pretty slighted. We wanted to go for it.

Disappointing decision

Removing Peyton Manning and essentially all the Colts starters while playing at home with the lead stinks.

Smart move, Colts

It only takes one freak play to end a player's season and the Colts have been victimized by freak plays sidelining key players for the playoffs.

Skidding into the playoffs
