Colts Recap -- Week 7 (A Little Late)


Recommended Posts

Sorry it's a little late:

Saints 62 vs Colts 7

What the Colts did Right

When you lose a game 62-7, you really didn't do much right. The only bright spot on offense was the play of Delone Carter, and Donald Brown later on in the game. Delone Carter was more impressive. Delone Carter ripped off a 42 yard run that included several brocken tackles. Dan Orlovsky made some nice passes at the end of the game, but he didn't help.

On defense, Antoine Bethea had an okay game leading the team in tackles. Kevin Thomas also had a nice debut. Pat McAfee had a good punting game.

What the Colts did Wrong

The Colts lost by 55 points, so a lot of things went wrong. For starters, the offense was just terrible. The main thing that the Colts needed to do going into the game was turnovers. The first thing the Colts did was turn the ball over and it wouldn't stop. They turned the ball over 3 times, 2 fumbles, 1 interception. That was a problem, but not the biggest problem. The main problem was the Colts pass defense. Stopping Drew Brees is not an easy task, but at least challenge him. The Saints had 9 possesions and they scored points on all nine. He effectively moved the ball against the Colts, and it seemed like nothing phased him. There was absolutely no pressure from the defensive ends, and the Colts didn't blitz at all. Drew Brees had all day to throw, and if he gets that he'll beat you. Another problem was Darren Sproles. That little guy seems to always kill us and today was no exception, as he ran over us. The Colts rush defense was horrible too as Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles combined for nearly 180 yards on 26 carries (6.9 yards per carry). The passing game was awful, as Painter didn't do anything effective and was even benched for Dan Orlovsky. The play calling was terrible, and Jim Caldwell is getting closer to the hot seat. Things need to change and the Colts need to look at this game, and learn from it, because if they don't it's going to be winless season for the Colts.
