This is one game that we really need the pass rush to show up. We must put constant pressure on Stafford to have a chance to win this game. I'm exited to see what Lefeged can do and the Colts need him, Davis and the rest of the DB's to come up big, and the only way that is going to happen is with a good pass rush. Freeny and Mathis were bringing the heat last week,it didn't show up in the stats, but they were solid all game long.I think Freeny is getting more healthy each week and they are both due a big game stats wise, lets hope its this week, some sacks and sack-fumbles could go a long way towards a victory Sunday.The Lions are a very talented team and very capable of putting up 40 points on anybody,but they are undisciplined due to coaching, and tend to make stupid mistakes at times.I think if we can keep pressure on Stafford and establish a running game early, we can open up the play action and control the game.to come out early and play like we did early against the Patroits(before the wheels came off)would be ideal. Like any road game with a young team we've got to avoid turnovers,at some point this team has got to take that next step, and play a turnover free road game.The blowouts on the road have been frustrating this season,but thats life in the NFL for a young team with a rookie quarterback,but to take that next step, to be a contender and not a pretender, the Colts have to come up big on the road.We know that if we make the playoffs its going to be a road game and thats why we have got to show that we can go on the road and beat a good team and inspite of their record the Lions are a good team. A win Sunday could be a huge confidence builder,much like the Packer win earlier in the season.This is not a must win,but a win would be huge for this young team.Lets hope they can come out and play a solid four quarters and get the road monkey off our backs, if they can do that, anything is possible moving foward. "GO COLTS"
