Trolling The Nation During Colts @ Cowboys: "Forty-Burger Sadness"

New, comments

Savor every last detail of Sunday's game as you read through what other fans had to say as they watched the Dallas Cowboys shame the Indianapolis Colts on national television.

Andy Lyons/Getty Images

As we've done repeatedly in the past, today we're re-living yesterday's game by taking a peek at what the fans of other NFL teams had to say while they were watching the Cowboys beat the Colts to win the NFC East.

Disclaimer: All quotes are taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites as indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy the site guidelines of our board, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

On some of these Trolling The Nation posts, you can't help but feel a certain Schadenfreude for the fans of the opposing teams, on others you feel a little sad for the opposing fans. We'll call that feeling "Forty-Burger Sadness."

In the past, I've received some questions asking why there are never any Cowboys fans in these threads. Two reasons: One, if you are a Cowboys fan and watched the game, you probably remember exactly how you felt during the game - no need for a rehash. Two, if you really want to see what other Cowboys fans said, you can always read through the open threads for the game here on BTB.

Pre-game and First Quarter
Colts At game. It’s pretty electric but I feel a Colts win coming on
by oxdp941 on Dec 21, 2014 | 3:53 PM
Colts Only reason I would want us to lose this is so the Eagles are knocked out of the playoffs.
by luck-ycoltsfan19 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:10 PM
Eagles Colts 38 Cowboys 24. Colts will get a few quick scores and take a commanding lead right at the beginning. Our playoff hopes live for another week.
by wilson25 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:22 PM
Eagles Half of me is rooting Colts. The other half just wants this torture of a month to end early with a Dallas win.
by zracer71 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:27 PM
Colts I have a bad feeling about this game
by luck-ycoltsfan19 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:29 PM

by CrownStephens724 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:30 PM
Colts Romo is killing us running???
by RyanGrigsonsDraftPicks on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:30 PM
Colts Romo channeling his inner Russell Wilson.
by aplethoraofpunk on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:30 PM
Colts If they could contain Romo scrambling we'd be in good shape.
by EVLGNUS on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:31 PM
Seahawks Colts defense looking good.
by shams on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:32 PM
PENALTY on IND-J.Freeman, Taunting, 15 yards, enforced at DAL 48.
Colts Taunting is such a dumb penalty
by jbacon55 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:33 PM
Colts That cost us 7. Guaranteed
by RyanGrigsonsDraftPicks on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:33 PM
Eagles Looks like the Eagles D out there. Big stop on third down and then the flag flies…
by wilson25 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:34 PM
Colts Cowboys meet the Colts D. Cowboys: "Well thanks - it’s great to meet you!"
by aplethoraofpunk on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:35 PM

Colts I hate this team. They cannot be disciplined even for one second. The level of stupidity of some players is beyond unreal!
by FrenchColtsLover on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:37 PM
Colts That didn't look too hard for Dallas.
by strandedincarolina on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:37 PM
Colts Looks like we are screwed this year. Got dumb players like Freeman, Landry, Toler. A dumb GM. No chance.
by FREDDIEMARKS on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:38 PM
Colts Got a feeling if the offense doesn't get it going from play one, this game could get out of hand quick
by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:38 PM

by Bleyd on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:46 PM
49ers Colts Colts Colts. What can I say? That was some of the worst opening play calling I have ever seen.
by McTee on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:46 PM
Bengals Wow. Fake punt, wide open receiver… Drrrrrrrrrop!
by Oregonbengalsfan on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:46 PM

by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:46 PM
Seahawks Dez Bryant on this team would be a dream come true
by Zane , on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:46 PM
Colts How you stop that, I don't know. Vontae wasn’t stopping that.
by deidunxcolts254 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:47 PM
Colts So two idiotic plays = 14 point hole
by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:47 PM

by Rithmckk on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:47 PM

by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:48 PM
Colts Best passing team in league against weak cowboys secondary, so what do we do? Open with 3 straight runs for nothing. I’m tired of these freaking idiots
by LBizZLE on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:51 PM
Colts If this game doesn't highlight the incompetence of our coaching, nothing will.
by strandedincarolina on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:51 PM
Colts Another 3 and out?
by aplethoraofpunk on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:52 PM
Eagles I have a feeling Tony is going to give the Colts a couple gifts this game. Then it's up to the Colts to say please and thank you
by pheenom on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:52 PM
Colts Yep, this is going to get out of hand
by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:53 PM
Colts 1 and done in the playoffs, this team is going nowhere with this coaching staff.
by kage*1984 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:54 PM
Seahawks Wow Phil Simms has gone full Cowboy homer for this game it looks like. Which in reality makes basically zero sense.
by rcuosukgi42 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:54 PM
Colts Bryant is just too much to defend
by anoll28 on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:57 PM
Colts Our defense is getting eaten alive. Absolutely eaten alive.
by aplethoraofpunk on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:57 PM
Colts 21-0 coming
by RyanGrigsonsDraftPicks on Dec 21, 2014 | 4:59 PM

Second Quarter
Jets Man, they keep reshowing that first TD pass by the Cowboys. What a pretty design. How a man like Mornhinweg, who has been an OC for so many years, is utterly unable to come up with a single nice play in the red zone all year is just incomprehensible.
by JetFanOverseas on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:00 PM
Seahawks I don't see how Colts homers say that Vontae Davis is an elite CB. Dude is getting eaten up by Dez Bryant
by King_Rajesh on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:00 PM
Colts 1st quarter is over and Luck has thrown one pass.
by strandedincarolina on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:00 PM
Seahawks When he and Romo are in sync, Dez Bryant can thrive on a steady diet of elite CBs
by shams on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:01 PM
Jets Cowboys lookin strong.
by Crackback on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:02 PM

Jets Love me some Dallas Cowboys right now. I hope they knock the Eagles out of the playoffs right here, right now
by MachlinT on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:10 PM
Texans Cowboys' defense is about as effective against the Colts as we were last week. Difference is this is what happens when you combine that with a competent offense.
by Sugel Mendoza on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:10 PM
Colts Another 3 and out? Not watching this crapola show anymore.....
by BoilerVaulter on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:11 PM

by CrownStephens724 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:12 PM
Seahawks Heavens above, the Dallas O-line is making me angry.
by rcuosukgi42 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:12 PM
Redskins As much as I hate the Cowboys, I have to admit, they will be at the top of the NFC East for quite a while. They are doing it the right way, building from the inside out.
by bppjr on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:13 PM
Colts Eagles fan here. I know this game doesn’t mean much to your boys, but a come back to stun Romo at home would nice
by pheenom on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:14 PM
Colts Get outta here Eagles dude. Worry about that 21st draft pick
by rocketcoe on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:14 PM
Colts I have an idea. Let’s not set the edge against DeMarco Murray.
by jbacon55 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:16 PM
Colts Poor Emmit. Had to see Colts on schedule and think, "Yep, my record's gone"
by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:16 PM
Eagles What position will the Eagles draft in? I can’t watch anymore.
by champion1964 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:17 PM
Broncos Colt D looks bad right now. They should have played a tougher schedule to toughen up.

by matt_v32 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:17 PM
(6:38) D.Murray up the middle for 1 yard, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 28 - Colts 0

by Flyndiggory on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:18 PM
Jets Is Luck playing?
by JetsFan718 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:18 PM
Colts For all the talk of taking Luck out, wouldn't be surprised to see Romo come out by middle of the 3rd
by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:19 PM
Eagles The Colts are going full Jay Cutler right now
by SebastianSmith07 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:21 PM
Chargers Indianapolis in the postseason scares me. Andrew Luck is just magic. Just because they’re down doesn’t mean their out of this game. They can come back.
by Jarred Braxton on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:23 PM
Colts A caught pass!!!
by Luck Inc. on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:23 PM
Seahawks So when is Andrew Luck turning on that elite button?
by Mookie Alexander on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:24 PM
Colts I love that pass play for 0 yards
by 2bad on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:27 PM
Colts I would tell them to pull Luck, but if we plan on making it out of the wildcard our offense has to show some signs of life
by anoll28 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:27 PM
Seahawks Is it just a ginger thing, or does Jason Garrett look like certain iterations of the green goblin
by sexydeepballs on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:28 PM
Eagles I am out. Can’t stand to watch this anymore. I just know some more crappy calls will happen and just drive me insane with anger
by Easedel on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:29 PM

by MFKrime on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:29 PM
Eagles Lol why are we all making excuses? Cowboys are good, and better than the us. Eagles deserve criticism, they messed it up
by insaneeaglesfanatic on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:30 PM

by mmmagician on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:32 PM
Eagles Dallas is getting hot at the right time of the year. Hate to say it but they have the ability to go far in the playoffs.
by IwantVick on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:34 PM
Colts Does anyone else ever think that Luck might just say, "You know what, thanks, but no" when his contract is up?
by RDReynolds on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:41 PM
Colts At least Luck can pad his stats
by luck-ycoltsfan19 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:44 PM

by sas1969 on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:56 PM

by korboko on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:57 PM
Seahawks That player was Russell Wilson.
by Rithmckk on Dec 21, 2014 | 5:57 PM

by Gulbrand on Dec 21, 2014 | 6:16 PM
(4:48) (Shotgun) T.Romo pass deep middle to J.Witten for 25 yards, TOUCHDOWN. With that completion, Tony Romo passed Troy Aikman as the Dallas Cowboys all-time passing yards leader.
Cowboys 35 - Colts 0
Seahawks Maybe... the guy with the "Cowboys 2014 Super Bowl Champs" tattoo might actually know what he was talking about.
by korboko on Dec 21, 2014 | 6:19 PM

by korboko on Dec 21, 2014 | 6:43 PM

by neener9er on Dec 21, 2014 | 6:43 PM
Seahawks I think the Cowboys have proven they are legit. Their defense wasn’t supposed to be any good, but they have improved each week. Not scary good defense, but good enough to make a few turnovers and allow the offense to do their thing.
by Wilder. on Dec 21, 2014 | 6:45 PM
(10:19) (Shotgun) B.Weeden pass deep right to T.Williams for 43 yards, TOUCHDOWN
