Shula: Colts Made A Wise Choice (3:14)

Don Shula talks about the Colts' decision to rest their starters (3:14)

Don Shula's comment was gracious. I can't say I expect the same from Mercury Morris, and pledge to flip the channel anytime he is coming on.

Here's the sad fact for the 1972 Dolphins -- undefeated doesn't matter any more. When a good team like the Colts predetermines a plan that allows for a loss when they are just two games away from regular season perfection, the jig is up.

It seems like Miami has mellowed on this. If they think that result is worth popping champagne over, they strike me more than ever as sad old men clinging to the past.
