On offense establish the run, don't turn it over, finish drives for touchdowns don't seatle for field goals, and show up for the whole game they can't disappear for a half like they do at times.

- First we have to stop the run, 2nd we have to keep Luck upright and 3rd we HAVE to get healthy and last we have to be able to pressure Brady. With a long week to prepare and nerse some injurys hopefully we can get key players back and healthy, Powers,Davis,Mathis,Justice,Satele and Fleener

Why just Freeney,Mathis and Redding. I think it should be a team effort lol.
3 things to win Freeney, Mathis, and Redding have to get to Brady make him uncomfortable in the pocket Freeny and Mathis more than any opponent has always had success.2nd. Stop the Patriots main weapons the TE's take a chance and let Welker beat them him and Brandon since Welker is used more as a decoy these days he prone to drop some passes that could be key to the gm.And 3rd the Colts offense must not kill themselves with turnovers do not turn the ball over and help them out.

They come at you with a pretty balanced attack this year, so I think you have to play assignment-based defense and hope you can slow down the scoring a little. I don't really expect us to do anything different than we have done on D all year. It'll really help us to have Mathis back, but I don't know if that'll happen. The onus will really be on Luck and the offense. We have the weapons to light them up, much like they can probably light up our D. I really expect a shootout, and we'll see if Luck is ready to outgun Brady...

We've got to stop Welker. He will eat us alive in the middle of the field. Gronkowski is another problem.
I really hope Chapman is ready to roll by then, that would be a huge advantage up the middle.
Mathis should be ready by then as well, so that will help both on pressure and against the run. We need to use Zibs on blitzes right behind Freeney so that when Freeney goes wide they can't just run it right past him.

Oh, and I want to see Chapman introduce himself to Brady three times.

1. Luck needs to out-play Brady
2. We can't let the Run beat us.
3. We need to start Butler and Davis at CB.

We are going to really need to be able to run the ball, keep Brady on the sideline and not turn the ball over. Defensively we have to get pressure or Brady will pick us apart. Yeah Butler and company looked good last night, but that is going against Gabbart. When you have Welker, Lloyd, and Gronk out there they will have a hard time stopping them. Frathis will have to have a great game or it will be a long day for our defense.
Of course we have a chance, but we will probably need to play our best game for all four quarters.

I'd much rather the Colts be up by more than just 1 score in the 4th...
Stop the run. Pressure Brady. Score td in the redzone not fg and try to be within 1 score in the 4th.
I guess to me, this is the toughest road matchup this team has had in a few weeks. I want to see a drastic improvement in their play over what they showed against the Jets. I want to see toughness and fight right to the end of the game. I want to see the dropsies get cleaned up a little more. I don't want to see Luck abused like the Jags were allowed to do.
Since it is looking increasingly likely this team has a shot at playoffs, I want to see something from them to suggest they can handle a tough opponent on the road, under intense pressure and scrutiny, and at least be competitive.
I am forever grateful for all the great players I've been fortunate enough to watch play the game with horseshoes on their helmets,
and I'm eagerly anticipating the opportunity to see which new Colts become the stars and fan favorites of tomorrow.

They have about as many weapons as greenbay
we arre outmanned on defense against NE...
the good news is.,,..,9 days off
we're looking at 10-6 now...if we can beat Detroit, Tennessee, Buffalo...and Kansas City

- No turnovers.
- Stop the run and run the ball effectively enough to keep their D honest.
- Play man on Wes Welker and zone on the rest. Give Brady different looks.
- Limit yards after catch with good tackling to stand a chance to limit them to 30 pts. or less. Score more than 30 pts by coming away with TDs instead of FGs and when you do have a chance to make a FG, Adam, make it .

2) Limit runs to the outside while our pass rush has theirs ears pinned back
3) Don't settle for field goals, play like you have nothing to lose.

Just better play inspired football.

And if we're ever going to get a big return this season, this would be the perfect game for that to happen.
