Steelers | Colts' coach Mudd ready to play team again

Mike Prisuta, of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, reports Indianapolis Colts offensive line coach Howard Mudd made comments in The Indianapolis Star about the Pittsburgh Steelers seven months after they won the AFC divisional playoff game. Mudd said, "I'm very respectful of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They won. They are the champions, and I respect them. But the Pittsburgh Steelers did not beat the Colts. The Colts beat the Colts. Let's go play again. Right now." Mudd blamed his offensive line for the loss and added, "We stunk the joint up. We were awful. I cannot explain it. It defies reason. You can take three years' worth of bad games and put them together and that's about what we performed like, except we did it all in one game." Steelers linebacker Larry Foote responded by saying, "He said we didn't beat them? What happened on the defensive side of the ball, when our offense was driving up and down the field on them? He didn't say anything about the interception we had (by strong safety Troy Polamalu) that the referees called back? Tell him they were outcoached."
