  1. No doubt. I need to see more of the pass rush...
  2. Lets do this Colts!!!!! Keep that chip on your shoulder!! Never let up!!! Kick em to the curb on D... We won't be stopped....
  3. I really like Toler and I would hate to think he'd be shut down for the playoffs. His presence seemed to impact the performance of this defense immeasurably. I keep waiting for this guy week in and week out. Kind of confused by the "Not 100%" comments. Clearly, the severity of this must be more than the Colts want to disclose. A guy who was an impact player and clearly a defense which has struggled in coverage in his absence- you would think they would have done everything possibly to get this guy back on the field. This is a concern moving forward as well.
  4. All around very solid performance. The difference yesterday was effective play calling. I liked the uptempo style and there was a comfort level with the guys that I hadn't seen at least in a while. T-Rich continues to impress with the catch and run. One issue that lingers is the effectiveness of this running game, particularly in third and short or short yardage situations. Even late in the game, (a game that the Texans had clearly and visually given up on by the third and fourth quarter) we could not effectively accumulate or grind out yards. There were the occasional bursts of 12 or 14 that were great to see, but the fact remains in my mind that a game which our opponent was getting beat down in all other phases, was able to contain the run without much difficulty. Running T-Rich into a brick wall for a yard is not going to help us much at Arrowhead this Sunday...I know it's been discussed time and time again on this board, but the run game still has quite a ways to go to be effective, or more importantly, "Dependable".
  5. It was a blatantly bad call. The guy admits to being tripped...The only player in the vicinity was Chapman from the opposition and clearly the runner's motion shifted after the contact was made...There was a huge difference between being down 7 at that point in the game and getting the ball back as opposed to being down two touchdowns. Total momentum killer when the defense thinks they are coming off a hard won battle at the goal line. Not a good performance the entire afternoon by the defense, but that was one blow that they didn't deserve in my opinion.
  6. Good comments. Yes, against the Bengals, this team is going to have to be far more productive moving the ball. Defense today was positive and really won the game. Freeman and Mathis again are super studs. I'm seriously buying a Freeman jersey like immediately. I love everything about this guy, how he is involved on every play and literally changes the game. Our secondary was surprisingly good- I think they answered the criticism from the last couple weeks today. If they play the tight coverage with few breakdowns as they did today, I think this is one of the better NFL units. Overall though, I think we are an average football team right now- middle of the pack. We had early successes this year, but we have lost key components to the offense and haven't had answers. Injuries are part of this game, and how NFL teams adapt week to week says everything. The team has been digressing offensively.
