We need to dink and dunk that Texans D.

Swing Luck out of the pocket on purpose (instead of running for his life all game)

Work on the pump fake so Luck can actually throw over JJ Watt.

Stop Foster and expose Schaub. <- biggest key to game right there.

I like your attitude. :rock:

If the Colts win this game, It will turn into the "miracle season" forever. I know the Texans don't want this......... can't wait

Another thing I think is key. B.A. said they were going to make a concerted effort to be balanced in the run game. I don't know what that is going to look like considering all the injuries at running back. I do know that you can run the ball on the Texans if you are consistent. I don't really like to use the "if this team did it, then we can do it" logic but Jacksonville was able to put up some pretty decent numbers on the Texans in the running game with Parmalee and he was a back up. Jacksonville has some of the same issues as we do on the offensive line, so I don't see why we can't replicate that with Vic Ballard who I think is better than Parmalee.

If we can get that going it will be huge, because sooner or later Luck is going to play action off that thing and hit Avery, Brazil, Hilton, or one of the tight ends for a couple big ones. Hopefully Arians will keep his promise and stay consistent with the running game because that will limit the amount of times Luck will have to throw into coverage, which will also(hopefully) decrease his likelihood of turnovers and pick 6. We'll see!

Our Tight Ends will be big in this game. As will our DB's. Tight Ends could win or lose this game depending on how good a game each of them has (Fleener and Allen), and I mean blocking and the whole nine when I say how good a game they have.

Spread them out and attack their secondary..shut down the run game and force Matt Schaub to win the game for them..force other receivers other than Andre to make a play..I think they have some 3rd and 2nd stringers on their line because of injuries so I think we will be able to pressure Schaub also..last but not least Luck needs to go to his check down options more often to negate the pass rush the Texans will bring..more specifically Watt..the other guys on the D-line are pretty much nonexistent.. I'm confident we can pull this out..the times we have played good teams this season we have been competitive..

Go Colts!

finish the sentence.

i think the colts need to get away from the deep route 5 wide all go sets because luck just wont have to the time to look down the field especially playing someone like jj watt. we need quick screens slants hooks comebacks and curls. i rather luck rollout then stay in the pocket so he can get more time. utilize play action. these texans love to get after the qb so we have to use that against them. on defense we have try to limit foster as best as we can. texans love to run between the guards and tackles and outside the tackle so we need to use the speed of our defense to try to stop him. id recommend having freeman or bethea on him at all times. most importantly we need to get to schaub. we cant have him standing in the pocket scanning the field or else hes gonna pick us apart.

W/O reading any posts yet, they will have to control the lines of scrimmage to win. And barring a miracle so huge that all major networks (including MSNBC) report that Devine intervention was witnessed at the game.... that aint gonna happen.

But there's hope, right?

Hope JJ Watt, Arian Foster, and Andre Johnson forget what time the game starts.

Honestly i just hope Luck dosnt get killed with their pass rush and our putrid offensive line.

Simple dink and dunks will shrink the defense making there secondary only needing to cover for 2-3 seconds. You at least need to have a deep threat to spread them out. I'd bring the stretch play back and make there D-line and Linebackers play the entire field,also the end around might be good too (even though it really never works). They are on a short week so I'd like to see long sustained drives that keeps there Defense on the field as much as possible. I'd also go no huddle (not hurry up) so they can't substitute players on drives.

On defense I'd stop the run and make Schaub throw to win. I could see Cory Redding having an excellent game. I'd force Schaub into 3rd and longs and make him check to his 3rd option giving our dline some time to get some hits on Schaub.

If we play this game right we shouldn't have to score a bunch to win. I would say 20-24 pts probably wins this game.

Jets, Colts Cheifs, Bucs. He would be far from an ideal situation probably but he would have been a better idea then activating Seth Olsen and hoping like heck that he doesn't actually have to be put in to play

The colts need to keep pounding the texans holes, all of them, till they give up like against the pats.

In order to win, the defense has to make Schaub be the focal point of the offense. If Foster gets any steam, Schaub's game improves exponentially. Make Schaub beat us on offense, and if he does, so be it. On defense, our only chance is to pick up the tempo with no-huddle. Both New England and Greenbay all but neutralized J.J. Watt with the quick snap attack. Their secondary is still very beatable when the pass rush isn't working. No-huddle will help make their D-line less of a factor. 

 

Last but not least (and we say it every week), the short passing game needs to be utilized by Arians. It can't all be go routes and bubble screens. There has to be a short-intermediate aspect to our attack if we want to have any success against this team.

    • I agree, Pagano says a lot of vanilla statements -- but in this case he is saying "well documented", which is true -- our running D, with Art in the lineup was allowing significantly less YPC.  This is when he is actually on the field, not sitting on the bench.  Here are the stats  -- http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/13395/the-statistics-show-that-the-colts-need-art-jones-on-the-field-to-stop-the-run :   WITHOUT JONES ON THE FIELD 257 rushes for 1,201 yards (4.67 yards per rush) 3.12 yards before contact per rush 12 rushing TDs (4.7 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 26 percent of rushes WITH JONES ON THE FIELD 165 rushes for 615 yards (3.73 yards per rush) 2.15 yards before contact per rush 2 rushing TDs (1.2 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 22 percent of rushes   ------------------------------------------------------------------ These numbers are pretty staggering, at least in my opinion (all of them -- the contact before rush sticks out the most to me, but the YPC, TD, and First Downs are all significant, too).   All that said, Jones has not been sidelined more than he's been on the field.  This PED suspension doesn't help the team and as you've said earlier, we won't miss him that much.  I don't agree with you that we won't miss him due to him not being a significant contributor when he is on the field (that he has been) -- but, he hasn't been healthy enough to be on the field long enough to really warrant missing him.... violating the league substance abuse policy doesn't help this team and doesn't help Jones.  If I'm the coach/GM, Jones is on a very short leash (or perhaps already dismissed) for this.
    • And so another rumor is laid to rest. Good riddance.
    • Do it for Pagel          
    • When is the draft going to be?
    • It was similar to what Jones ran at Baltimore but not the same.  That is why I was I didn't think his poor play was earth shattering.   Yup, I ran the numbers of the games he played and the games he didn't play.  In the games he played the Colts allowed a lower YPC average than the games he didn't play.  The odd thing as I was running the numbers though, is with Jone in the game the opposing team used the running game a lot more.  With Jones teams ran the ball an average of 28.667 times per game, without Jones they ran the ball 20.33 times per game.  Without Jones the COlts D gave a lot more long running plays, with Jones, they gave up a lot more first downs via the ground.    So, I will admit I was wrong about the higher YPC with Jones.  But I still would not quanitify what Jones did as a significant contribution to the run defense, mainly because teams were able to grind out the running game and keep the chains moving and keep the Colts O off the field.   Lastly, quoting Pagano doesn't really mean a lot.
