Shula to Colts: Nice try
In the meantime, here's a statement the Dolphins released Sunday night from former coach Don Shula after the New York Jets beat the Colts 29-15.
"While the Jets' win today ended Indianapolis' streak and showed once again how difficult it is to go undefeated, I want to congratulate the Colts on a great run. Peyton Manning proved once again this season why he is one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the NFL, and it was certainly no surprise to see him lead the Colts to an NFL-record 23 straight victories. I have the utmost respect for Peyton and his teammates, [general manager] Bill Polian and the entire Colts organization, who have once again put together an outstanding season."
