I am just adding to this not arguing with anything you said here but so will the first half defense. You can’t keep getting down multiple touchdowns in the first half and expect to keep coming roaring back. They do that vs KC or the Steelers and they are in deep trouble.
They need to figure out a way to get whatever they are seeing to make halftime adjustments into the game sooner because their second halves have been lights out for the most part. That or they need to get better at anticipating what the other team is going to do rather than just being very good at adjusting to it at half.
I never said the Colts are better then the Steelers. I just said they don't impress me. I think their record is not indicative of their team, but more of their schedule. They are not the 07 pats, the 04 colts, or even the 2015 Panthers.
