I dont think it wouldve been different in Indy,in all honesty you cant turn the ball over with this young team against the Pats or any high profile offense and expect to get away with it,not to mention special teams play was just terrible.This compounds it because it leaves your defense on the field way to long,and the game gets away.I knew going in the Colts had to play mistake free to pull off an upset.They will be a better team from this count on it
The best part of a Mixed Martial Arts beat down like this...There is only 1 way to go straight up. You get up, dust yourself off, & say okay let's regroup & have each other's back. We aren't the Jets here; adversity makes us stronger not timid and weaker. No egos, no prima donnas, no pointing fingers at your locker room brethren. NE did us a favor; they let us know we have a high mountain to climb...Just keep swinging the pick axe; we will crack the Playoffs ice eventually.
Our WR's & TE's are solid...Our RB's are more than capable...Our o-line must generate more holes, creases, and running lanes...Our Special Teams needs some heavy duty work...Our QB is learning...Our defense stumbled after the 1st quarter...A work in progress...We learn, we adapt, we evolve...The Blue Horseshoe will rise again and do some branding of our own.
