get this The Chiefs R worse on third/fourth down than the Colts are, If we start seeing third down conversions by Matt Cassel, it's going to be tough for the Colts to win.

8 specific points are discussed and other stats and opinions given

If we can get Delone Carter and Addai to rush with succes up the middle we have a legitimate chance to have Collie and Wayne and Garcon open for a few big gains maybe some long scoring pass plays. But honestly the RBs have to be playing well to keep those DEs on the Chiefs honest. If they feast on open meat Painter he will get hurt because Glenn Dorsey will hurt some people this yr!

One other key to this game is special teams play. Not only do we not want to give up any special teams scores....we really need to keep them pinned back as much as possible.

Painter and the offense will need the best field position possible.

McAfee has to kickoff out of enzone so no returns and pin them on punts

yes u have 2 teams bad on 3rd down conversions and sustaining drives, field position can be critical, Charles ran wild on us last year but he is out

heres hoping Garcon gets in open space and we block like last week after a catch, those long TD via YAC may be vital here, if we get a run game going and then play fake the hand off & do some deep throws who knows

For the Colts to win this Game it starts with the O line. If Painter can stay on his feet the Colts will win this game. The defense is going to be there this week. The only concern is how will the corners cover Bowe he is starting to get going, that is my concern.

Wow just looking at those stats kind of puts into prespective how bad we are doing this year. The only positive I really saw was that we are averaging more YPC than our defense is giving up. That's a definite plus for us. Les just hope we can keep that going now that Foster is on IR.

The keys to the game: O-line, O-line, O-line, and jump balls to Garcon :) (don't throw it waist level, he will drop it, let him go up and get it like Megatron :)).

I think we need to get joe at least 20 touches, not play 21 yards off the ball at all times and feel free to mix in a in game adjustment. than we will be 1-4

I feel the same, im sure he can do a better job than Caldfail at keeping the O pumped up.

I think maybe executing the gameplan will keep the offense pumped up. Maybe converting more than 4 times on third down. Maybe not throwing the ball over the receivers' heads, or not allowing your quarterback to get hit every third drop back.

I don't think it's Caldwell's job, or anyone else's job, to keep the offense pumped up. I think it's Caldwell's job to put the offense in situations where they can have some success, and let the motivation come on the field.

    • One thing I have never done is meet Peyton Manning. I have been to around 50 home games during my Fandom from 1987-2013 regarding going to games. I met Jim Harbaugh and got his autograph when I went to the Chargers game in 1996. He chatted with me for around 2 or 3 minutes. Called me Bud over and over and was so nice and he kept smiling at my mom  . I was only 25 then. Just going to the Masters alone had to be a treat but talking to Peyton had to be the cherry on top. Great stuff man.
    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz.
