OK, if you've been waiting for Bill Simmons to give his take on Pats-Colts, here it is. Guess who he picks. C'mon, guess. The idea here is that the Pats are just too hungry for the Colts to beat them. Which is fine and dandy, except here are a few names that Bill doesn't mention when talking about how the three-time champions simply will not accept losing: Duane Starks, Arturo Freeman, Nick Kazcur, Monty Beisel, and Heath Evans. This game isn't about Tom Brady and Tedy Bruschi. It's about whether those guys can fill the holes.
