The Colts will prevail!

The Colts’ disastrous trip to visit the Stillers in Picksbargh an ‘at (that’s rilly how they talk there, yinz get it, ya buncha jagoffs?) has resulted in a plummet in the power rankings. Face it: when you go from a shutout one week (OK, it was against the Bungles) to getting humiliated for 51 points — including Luck tossing a pick-6 while a goon dressed like a bumblebee throws for SIX TDs and 500+ yards, you’re gonna put a damper on all the “’85 BEARS!” yammering.

One of the commenters on Kravitz’s Dopey Report Card had this to say:

Against 3 good teams the D didn't show very well … just saying.

Yours truly said the following, waaaayyy back when at the start of this Very Weird Season:

Oct. 26 at Steelers: The field is named after a ketchup. Ketchup is the color of blood. Steelers 17, Colts 3.

Pretty proud of the call on that spread, there.

The good news for all of us is that GINO’S STILL LIVES.

Wait, what? What does a retooled hamburger franchise have to do with the Colts? Look it up. The short version: Greatest Game Ever Played. All those dudes get famous. Some open restaurants.

In 1982, right before the Colts move to Indy, Gino’s is sold and most of the stores become Roy Rogers burger joints.

THAT’S THE SAME YEAR BURGER CHEF WAS SOLD TO THE HARDEE’S FLAKS.

Hardee’s brought back the Big Shef burger in the 2000s. Gino returned in 2010.

So have a mighty faith, Blue Nation.

Check the years the Colts won championships. THEY ALL LINE UP WITH AMERICA’S ABILITY TO EAT EITHER BURGER CHEF OR GINO’S BURGERS, PEOPLE.

And Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy.
