I'm thinking it must be so difficult for players to physically be ready and have their legs ands body recover for a Thursday game, but perhaps the Colts having so many young bodies will help them be more ready? I know Andrew said already when asked about this (recovering) that being 23 really helps but it's similar for T.Y., probably A. Q. Shipley, Freeman, Costanzo, Ballard, Allen, Carter, etc., ect.

Also Coach Arians was raving about Hickman's play on Sunday so maybe we'll see a little more of the young reserves on Sunday and use our bench.

What do people think?

The team will have to rely on its bench with so many players dinged up (last I heard was 6 starters likely sitting out).

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.

It's true tonight we will need 2nd and 3rd string players to step up big time with more reps.

Arians said that Hickman had 2 great practices last week and that he had some great plays against the Fins. I thought so to, he applied pressure several times.

That LB core is just nasty, overall a solid group of guys. Good fundamentals and good motors, great depth.

Gabbert, Rashad and Blackmon are young too. I wonder how they'll play. :hmm:

    I saw in the Colts mailbag that Nicks will wear number 14. That's weird. I wish they would have just given him 88. Marvin was great, but you don't have to retire everyone's number that's ever been good on your team.
