I'm going to watch Peyton dismantle rives now...

Sorry for bailing but I'm tired of this. It's recording in case of a miracle.

Not really. Denver's D is winning that game. Denver's O can barely move the ball and fumbles/drops continue.

Then again, we're in the second half now and we all know what happens then.

Not a good hard throw. DB took a risk and it paid off. chalk this game up to experience and executing your gameplan. When Ray Lewis went down the Pats became my pick to go to the SB. no surprise the team is good Talib was highway robbery for what they gave up.

Oh Gosh....

When it rains it pours.

Sadly I think NE might be back in the SB again too. Peyton has issues in NE/they always carve up the Broncos D and Houston can be had and have been exposed a few times. And Baltimore? No idea.

The Bills put up more of a fight than we did.

Just wait until they play a team with a pass rush. (Houston)

I was referring to the first Bills game. When they had the lead and momentum at halftime. Then didn't bother to show up in the second half and got 50 something hung on them by the Pats.

We've fought harder than that performance, we just can't get out of our own way it seems....

Luck has played probably one of hia worst games yes but no one is talking about the atrocious play calling or game mismanagement... The bright idea of forgetting what running the ball was was soo good and the even better idea of running nothing but long time consuming routes when their d has momentum is even better... Awful coaching.... Can't rely on luck to outtalent or outwill the oposing team when the opponent is actually well coached.

Please no...not NE and Not Houston. I'd be okay with Baltimore. They should have made it in last year.

Just give in to your fears without the denial. I did it weeks ago with NE. I was hoping though we could knock them off a peg today too.

They will be VERY tough come playoff time. Very very tough.

    • All this off season there were those who were talking about how bad Glow was. That he was the weakest link and needed to be replaced. And when Pinter was drafted how he could step in and take Glows spot.     Y'all are looking kind of uninformed at this point.   
    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
