Well Malik Jackson will give those rooks and nice warm welcome to the NFL and to Europe. It may just be the experience this young line needs to find a unit that works. If not Allen and Doyle.............SEND HELP!!
If Jacksonville is successful against our starting D on the ground, we're in A LOT of trouble. I just don't see it happening.
They haven't had a guy run for more than 39 yards yet this year (good for 2.8 YPC as a team). Our defense has held starting RB's to a combined 36 carries, 109 yards the past two weeks (3.0 YPC). We now have all 11 starters slated to play.
It's a blowout in Jacksonville's favor if they somehow manage to flip the script on the ground.
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
