Vaughn not only gets beat, but feels the need to draw a lot of PI calls costing us a lot of yards. I hope its Gordy and Butler.

It will be Gordy in the nickel but yes Gordy was great against the Jags.

I'm pretty sure no one will confuse Gabbert with Brady. Gabbert deserved a team ball last week for making our DBs look so good.

Good tackling is good tackling it doesn't matter who threw the ball and Gordy did that last week, 4 solo tackles playing the nickle and one very nice one on a screen.

He would have had to make more tackles if Gabbert could have hit a few more wide open receivers. It's nice that he's a decent tackler, but isn't it better if the DB doesn't have to make a tackle because he defended the pass?

I'm not saying he's horrible, just that I didn't see anything special from him. Our D backfield will have a real test on Sunday. I hope you're saying "I told you so!" on Monday.

and so are theirs

I agree with you. It wouldn't surprise me if the game comes down to who has the ball on the last series. NE D hasn't exactly been stellar either. But when you're putting up as many points as them maybe you don't have to be elite. Or even good.

nope the jags are just that bad

Gordy played a fine game. Blackmon got almost no separation from Gordy all game and that's 1v1, which has nothing to do with how bad the rest of the team/QB is. I was quite impressed.

Mr.Tom better be getting the ball out in a hurry with the duo back in action. I think Freeney Mathis,Chapman and Redding will help the corners alot.

Lol davis drew lots of pi when he plays to

Yes, he's had 3 PI's and has costed us 29 yards...

Vaughn however...

6 penalties. 60 yards. 1 Holding, 2 Illegal Contact, 2 Pass Interference and 1 Unnecessary Roughness

He leads the team in total number of penalties and yards for penalties.

He just doesn't make smart decisions. That was the point I was trying to make I guess...

"so our starting dbs will be " -

Toast.

I hope we can score TD's and not settle for FG's... and maybe we can get a game changing play from the D.

blackmon hasn't been able to get seperation from any db this year. gordy had a good game, but i have to look at it in context.

Don't put words in my mouth, or imply that I took a position on how good a DB Gordy is because I didn't. I said Gordy played well in the game against the Jags meaning when he had the opportunity to make a play he did AND THAT'S THE FACT PERIOD. I didn't say he will play great against an elite QB like Brady or express confidence that he will "pass a test on Sunday". Maybe he will play well or maybe he will be burned all day.....so there won't be a need for a told you so. Are you unable to give a player credit when he plays well, cause Gordy played well against the Jags.

And so I'm clear (cause I suspect you'll feel a need to respond) my reaction to Gordy's play in the Jags game was, hey he played pretty well....first time I've seen that....pleasant surprise....hope it's not a one time thing....maybe there's some talent there waiting to get the chance....hope so.

True we are cool cause we are both rooting for the same thing to happen and are both unsure Gordy can deliver on Sunday.

    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      Hahaha yeah and the Colts were without Luck for 9 games and we still split the series with them. The Texans narrowly escaped with that win against us too, WITHOUT Luck!!! Not impressive if you ask me. Then they got spanked and embarrassed in the first round of the playoffs. If the Colts boast an improved O line this year with a healthy Luck and a competent offensive coordinator, I think the Colts still have this division. Plus we get Henry Anderson back on D. And Brock is still very largely unproven so there is more question marks there than answers right now.  
    • Add 2 players to the Colts- 1 on offense and 1 on defense
      Watt Gronk Not very imaginative,  but those are your game wreckers
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      I think the original comment about a backup P/K was a joke since teams don't carry backup kickers in the regular season.  Therefore the depth would be N/A instead of getting an "A" grade, like the OP did.   The starters get an "A", but there are no backup kickers on ANY team to grade for depth...
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      So because you haven't seen it happen, Vinatieri hasn't punted a football in years, and therefore, couldn't even do it if he had to in a game?    You don't think the Colts have ever practiced for a situation where McAfee gets hurt, and Vinny has to punt?  Have you seen how McAfee hits returners?   You don't think he has punted the ball once in a single practice with the Colts ever?  Because you haven't seen it in camp?

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
