Sorry about the way the game is going, everyone. I expected the offense to struggle a lot, but thought the defense would be decent. I can't get the game here. Is it something the defense can turn around in upcoming weeks?

The defense is getting beat in every way possible, and now the special teams does this. Can we say Jim Caldwell and the coaching staff were unprepared for this game yet?

Special teams joining the party.....! All this is not a surprise, so not getting the 'sick' feeling I normally get. I hope we take a knee to end the half...

I'd say its time to put a whoopin on Schaub.

Hit him after he releases the ball like everyone else does.

Bust them in the mouth!

If we can't win the game, at least make them remember we were here!

I'll say it one more time in this forum. We need to loose all of them and draft Andrew Luck for next year. Enough said. This team is lost and demoralized without Manning. They look and feel hopeless. It's really difficult to watch.

That defense has the exact same issue that it has had for years now. The exact same.

This isnt related to Manning not being there btw, but rather a management and coaching issue.

That won't help, we'll just get penalties for roughing the passer

No offense guys, but i hope we do horrible this season and get good draft spot, so we can get the QB from stanford LUCK.

I'm sorry to say that we need way more than a QB. Front office has ridden Manning for too long. We need help all over the field. If we get a high pick we need to trade down.

This isn't going as well as I had hoped. Our line isn't doing a decent job and the two fumbles cost us dearly inside our twenty.

Personally, I don't know why we weren't just trying to run the ball more and why not just move Collins to the shot gun every play? We have nothing to lose and it should give him just a little more time to get the ball out.

Caldwell has done a good job today. We are lucky to have him or we might be get beat by 60 points. The players are upset because they felt like no one gave them a chance? Are you kidding me? Good thing they are playing made.....I would hate to see what this game would look like if they weren't playing mad.

Every player needs to be embarrassed, and as a fan i am disgusted by this display that a team who was "MAD", and out to prove a point, could come into a game and be down 34-0 at halftime.

We have the potential, we don't have the coaches. Caldwell is not the coach, I'll say it.. Manning is the coach. Im so disgusted right now, im thinking first round draft pick here we come. Rrrrr!!!! Maybe i'll feel better after a couple beers, a couple shots, and a good cry. lol

We came into the season needing to improve our OL play, our defense and our special teams. To this point: Defense=LOUSY, OL=LOUSY, ST=LOUSY. These problems are not new, just a continuation of what we've seen in previous seasons. It's either personnel or coaching, but both are ultimately the responsibility of the front office.

Don't be fooled into thinking the return of Peyton Manning will turn this into a title contending team, the same goes for getting Andrew Luck. Without some serious changes, Peyton would be better off to hang it up and retire to some exotic location or get into coaching. My biggest fear is that Irsay won't have the stones to force such needed changes and we'll be back to having the first round of the draft being our most important day of the season....

It's not just the QB. It's the defense the coaching staff all the way to the front office. We need change because Peyton has hidden the flaws of this organization. I love Indy and the colts but this is seriously a joke. This is a poorly coached team.

Im sorry but you must me watching a different game than i am, because the offensive line is looking worse than they ever have, there is constant pressure, and just like in years past, the running backs are having to dodge defenders before they are even out of the backfield.

This can't be good for Peyton if he's watching from home. His neck and shoulders have to be in one tight knot by now. :(

The Texan fans are probably on cloud 9 right now being as how we have owned them for so long, but the game is not over yet.

Our team needs some work. No doubt about it. But it's not the end of the world. First game of the year. Time to make improvements.

At some point, the GM will have to be held accountable. If you got Foster and Moala playing on the DL on your team in the NFL, it means you're in troubles.

Either Conner or Angerer could be a starter but not both at the same time. Both are being abused. The CBs/safeties group isnt too bad, above average compared to the NFL. DT and LBs tho are (and have been for years) in the bottom groups of the NFL.

That is what the Colt offensive line looks like without Manning calling the plays at the line.

I have said it many times before and I'll say it now. He protects them.

Is Sims out? He was down holding his knee.

Caldwell and company look like what everyone thought... puppets. Painter time? Let's see what he can do....

Dont wory guys. We still have Caldwell's half time adjustments to come. That should see the Moo Cows reach 60 points.

Nice.

Thats thinking positively.

Sickening, just sickening. Peyton means alot but this team from coach down needs to suck it up and do their job. BE ASHAMED COLTS, that level of play in the 1st half deserves nothing but shame.

I'm aware of that.

Its not like the penalties are gonna affect us today.

Remember the SB against NO? They didn't call them.

But then not only would we lose the game, we would get penalized and people will start to say we play dirty
