Mathis is back!

27 posts in this topic

Colts OLB Robert Mathis (back) will return for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Mathis, who has six sacks in just five games played this season, will start opposite Dwight Freeney. Jerry Hughes goes back to a rotational role.

That's some good news at least.

I feel a little better that Mathis is back.

Mathis and Freeney will definitely be needed to slow down Brady and the Pats offense.

Great news!

It'll be interesting to see how this defense steps it up a little more with Mathis and Freeney out there and Chapman possibly being on the field at the same time.

Whoever we put on them it's a matchup nightmare. Pass rushing the source might be the only option. I get the feeling it's going to be a bit of a shoot out but we don't have as much firepower to work with. Should make for a good watch though.

Depends on the formation, I don't see the Colts using 3-4 against 4 wide. On those plays I think we will see Vaughn, Butler, Gordy, and S. Brown.

Not at all what Bellichek and Brady wanted to hear. Go get 'em Bobby.

maybe it's just me, but don't see mathis as a guy one would call "bobby"

Best news of the week so far!

At least or D seems getting better for Sunday. Still have concerns on CB. Wonder if Vontae Davis would be back.

Good News.

Funny how the Guy who's been most, LEADS the Team in Sacks. Now either he's just that Good, or somebody isn't playing to their Full Potential

Good to see Brady will have to deal with the same old headaches, but only now coming from standing LBs.

Maybe they can start racking up some INTs instead of Sacks. Let Redding get the sacks!!!

Maybe I'm missing it, but I haven't seen Freeney or Mathis in Coverage much. Am I missing it, or are they pass rushing every time?

Now just imagine if Chapman commands a double team as well?

I just got giddy. Like really giddy.

Gavin, when I check the Colts website, they haven't posted an injury report for week 11 yet. Is it possible you are/were still seeing last weeks?

    • Yea, I was going to say that too, because Tony Dungy sure as hell doesn't. He is the most non-bias nicest guy ever, and I can tell he lets Rodney push him around because of it.
    • 2 very valid points [what I bolded]. I get what you're driving at BF4. We need more takeaways, a 1,000 yrd rusher, better TE execution, & solid special teams returns week in; week out.    Look, we all revere Chewbacca & rightly so, but he can't carry us to the Promise Land alone. Not to mention, Luck's interceptions must decline dramatically too say no more than 10-12 in a given yr just to stay competitive & on our toes. Plus, we need to be weary of tradition--Winning the AFC South crown like clockwork because like it or not our rivals have gotten better & sooner or later, Houston will find their franchise QB. It's only a matter of time. The Texans are not the Browns as much as some fans like to pretend they are. Brock might be the guy along with Lamar Miller like BF4 said. I don't live in denial. It's possible that the Texans give us a run for our money.    Yes, Brock hasn't proven anything yet, but most experts never thought INDY was gonna be good in 2012 either & we exceeded expectations. So, why assume that 2016 will be a cakewalk? A dangerous proposition. 
    • I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for last yr, or at least enough to think he can beat out a CB that couldn't make any Teams final 53 by week 5, when we would, In theory,  be dropping Cromartie. If he was playing hurt last season then it makes sense.  I've seen some terrible cb play from good corners (vontae Davis included) when they have been playing hurt. Im willing to believe that if he's healed and 100% then he's better then a Josh Gordy quality cb until proven otherwise.  
    • Yes.....    I believe "probable" meant 75% chance of playing or better....   it was an eyebrow raising thing when it happened....   and with some teams,  it happened a lot.....  far more than with others....      There was a lot of gamesmanship with the system.    Of course,  gamesmanship is just a polite word for....  cheating!       ;-)  
    • I know it depends on how he plays. And I think he is going to play awfully.. but we will see.
