I agree, not a good idea with dropping the NT in coverage. I guess they tried to get a surprise pick similar to that by BJ Raji against the Bears the year the Packers won the Super Bowl.
And yes, I like the idea of emphasizing execution over trying to fool the opponent, on both sides of the ball.

If these two receivers can continue playing like they did today (although Rogers dropped a critical 3rd down early) this game may be the turning point late in the season. I am concerned about the defense but that may change with adjustments, better offensive play and by getting healthy at CB spot.The coaching stuff continue to be clueless (not that I am not :) ) at the beginning of the games, early drops don't help either. Today they started with passes but then on second series there were two futile Richardson runs. To me this shows that they keep trying all kinds of approaches but still don't know what works.

4. I agree, Donald Brown has been under appreciated and for me often upsetting.5.I don't understand the hype for Rogers either but I guess it's similar to the "backup QB syndrome". 6.I was very surprised by how many Colts fans were in San Diego too, the entire lower half of the stadium was filled with blue shirts.8. I hope they use Reitz at left guard and move Thornton to the right. I thought Reitz and Castonzo were a pretty successful duo for running to the left side when they played together.Go Colts! They play well as underdogs and I hope they win another one.

I like to believe Colts will overachieve in this game and cause one of the surprises of the week.They did that in all the games they were considered major underdogs this season.

Tremendous work, much appreciate. Speaking of stunts, I have a silly question, "Is there such thing as zone pass blocking?". That would theoretically work better against stunts as an offensive lineman would not have to worry about a D lineman switching the point of attack but just defend his area around him.

1. I appreciate the humor in the article.
2. I just love the way Donald Brown has been playing and I am glad he finally gets the appreciation he deserves from other Colts fans. I know people here at CA have been supportive in the past
3. That play by Walden looks like from a manual.

I guess you can say that Landry could have taken a better angle on that play but CJ is very fast and Landry had to cover a lot of field to get there. I would blame the other guys that got blocked by the Titans O.
@Bobman1 @dmstorm22 Pats may lose against Denver and Ravens but I can see the Colts possibly losing all 3 road games.

@DougEngland He probably would have brought up Marvin's playoff record like SI's Peter King has been doing.
I also have a feeling the Cardinals will win but in the ESPN Pick'em I picked the Colts because I believe there is a "curse" stemming from picking against your favorite team :)
@MarcusDugan @unitas19 The way they've been playing lately I can't see the Colts winning any of the remaining away games, but I do think they should win all 3 home games. Anything better than 10-6 is a bonus.

He deserves the punishment even though it may have been his first offense. He could have hurt Walker really bad because the guy didn't have his helmet on.
@Bobman1 I get the sense that Patriots are slowly getting better and better and their defense, in spite of losing Wilfork and Mayo, are becoming a well glued group, more like defenses of the past. At least that is my impression, that by playoffs time they will become a force to be reckoned with.

@MarcusDugan I still like Whalen. Unfortunately people are less willing to give some time to an undrafted WRs like Whalen to improve than to those players that were high draft picks.

I am skeptical about this guy but I have to admit that he looks like an NFL level wide receiver in those videos. For the good of the Colts I hope in a miracle.
@Bobman1 @smonroe That's an interesting speculation but I am not sure it works like that.

What the heck was Rogers chewing in between questions in that interview on colts.com? I couldn't stand watching.
The answer about Alterraun Verner reminds of Nick Harper's story. Colts had been trying to replace him for a number of years but he kept sticking as a starter.
