 As of today there are no more undefeated teams in the NFL for the 2009-2010. The New York Jets defeated the Indianapolis Colts 29-15. The Colts let the Jets win. A kind gesture to give them a chance in the play-offs. I must be honest I think less of Jim Caldwell for pulling Peyton and other starters in the 3rd quarter with only a 5 point lead. Some Colts players were quoted as saying they do not care about a perfect season.


That is not football. The Colts do not deserve to win the Super Bowl after a stunt like this. I hate to bash the Colts but this really got off with me. We are seeing the NFL become more and more conservative. Thus becoming more boring. This is the second time I have seen an NFL giant give up this year, the first being Tom Brady giving up against the Saints. What is wrong with the NFL?

This also shows how the level of competitiveness would drop if the NCAA implements a play-off system. I know this spouts off about a few different things, but guys I like to see hard nose football.
