Definitely disagree, it's 2005 all the way imo. The playoff loss to the Steelers. Everything was set up for them, the Broncos in the AFCCG and Seattle in a dome for the Super Bowl, and they completely blew it. So badly on multiple fronts. Can't even get into it the game itself, deep down I don't think I've fully gotten over it yet.
If there's one game you couldn't pay me to watch again, it's that one.
This, except to say that I've gotten over it because Adam Vinatieri earned every penny of his exorbitant (for a kicker) contract in the 2006 divisional playoff game. With Vanderjagt, I honestly believe the Colts lose that game as well.
The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.
If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.
<Add1ct> setting myself on fire can't be that hard

The Colts loss to the Steelers in '05 hurt, definitely. But if you go back 10 years when Jim Harbaugh led the surprising Colts to the AFCCG but just lost by an arm's length... it probably had to do with my young age at the time but I'd really gotten swept up in the Colts that year, and to see it end like that still makes my stomach turn.
2002 Playoff Game against the 49er's. Giants had a huge lead and gave it up. We then had a FG to win and Trey Junkin messed up the snap. There was actually a PI on that play that should have been called which would have given us another chance.
I AGREE!!!!! It should have been pass Int. AND off setting allowing us a second chance!!!! DAMN you Ron Winter!!!!! Damnnnnn You!!!!!!
Also, the Ravens superbowl! I always hated Fasshole and Carrie Collins, but that game made me loath them! Team looked totally unprepared! Thank god both fools are gone!
The playoffs a few years back, Chiefs v Colts, where everyone though LJ was going to run over the leagues most porous rush D and instead we didn't get a 1st down until the 3rd quarter. We got dominated.
That sucks to remember.
I'm surprised you picked this over 1995 and 2003. 03 might be the most amazing shootout in the playoffs we'll ever see, divisional playoffs at Arrowhead and finished 38-31 I believe.
It would have to be the Divisional Game against the Steelers. Anytime the Colts got any sort of luck in that game, it was wasted. The fumble by the Bus looked like it was gonna be returned until Big Ben made a brilliant tackle, the missed Field Goal etc all made that game unbearable. Also, it should have been the Colts year and it would have been brilliant to win it for Tony Dungy, whose son had only passed away a few weeks before the game. I still remember all the players and coaches, on both teams, just saying "He missed it" when Vanderjagt missed his field goal.
In Football the object is for the Field General to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the Defence by hitting his Receivers with deadly accuracy, in spite of the Blitz, even if he has to use the Shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy’s Defensive Line.
Just ask David Tyree and his damn helmet. Also the AFC Championship game three years ago against the Colts when they came back comes nextfor me
Oh man I never want to remember that superbowl.
Other than these, I'd say the divisonal playoff game against Denver at mile high. The phantom pass-interference call, the, IMO touchback, but it was waaaay too close to call, on the Watson-Bailey play.
I would say the Chiefs game this past year, but thankfully I missed the worst part of that game.
Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Texas Longhorns
