I've not heard enough said about Butler's purse-snatching performance on DHB. One of the few positive plays from the defense on the night. I didn't get to see much of the game but caught part of Q3 (on mute at a restaurant, forgive me if the commentators covered this...though I'm doubting they did). Watch the replay & you'll see Butler intentionally NOT make contact w/DHB on the ground to rule him down but, instead, wait for him to get his footing so he could punch the ball out. It was like a cat playing with an injured mouse in the front yard.

@Brad Cronin I was really holding out hope that Nicks would buck the trend as well.
At some point, it dawned on me that TR had a shot at a 100 yd game, but then the cameras showed him on the sideline w/his leg wrapped. I couldn't hear Fouts/Eagle no doubt stellar insight, so can anyone update me on what happened?

The amount of batted/tipped balls last night was disturbing. I tend to believe that was more a product of Houston's D-line than a legitimate concern w/Luck (low release, etc?) - thoughts?
Did Hilton get dinged sometime in the 4th Q? There was a brief shot of him w/some team staff on the sidelines, but I don't recall any insightful commentary from Nance/Simms on it ... not that insightful commentary from them is an actual thing.
Could have sworn I saw Dominique Rhodes on the Colts sideline last night. Wearing some multi-color trendy hipster tank top. Anyone else?

Sometimes, specifically w/regard to those draws on X & long, it seems like Pep still thinks he's playing against college squads ... that he's expecting the opposing defense to *not* tackle well and the RB regularly rip off a long run in those situations.

Since before the days of Corey Simon, Colts fans have been dying to have legitimate play at DT. Last night, I was fairly impressed with Art Jones, Chapman, & Zack Kerr(plunk). But yeah, Grigs forgot to read the article in the papers about the NFL being a passing league.
Also, Dwayne Allen runs like a locomotive. Even slow motion replays are scary.

Dear esteemed Colts Authority staff,
Thank you for essentially wiping my Friday off the work-map. It's like other such sports-related commitments (March Madness, World Cup, etc.) that have the misfortune of happening during work hours.
Downloaded this morning w/the intent to begin reading tonight (because that's what lame old people consider Friday night fun). No such luck. Already 20% though it.
You may be hearing form some corporate attorneys shortly.

@codrutc Yes, great motor. Looks like a great apprentice for Mathis to mentor. But much like how any given movie trailer can make the most awful movie worth watching, I've gotta remind myself to watch the highlights with a grain of sand.

Great collection of Griff gifs.
Seriously though - his burst that you pointed out on the screen pass is killer. Too many times you'll see a player get set and then decide where to run vs determining the path *as* they attack the space.

Thought for a moment there in #1 that you were going to propose Pagano will bring in Choice (Tashard) off the bench before Richardson and use him as the rolling ball of a thousand paper cuts. Anyone tracked what kind of action he's seen since he was signed?

Hilarious bc I was thinking the same thing. Whatever happened to the "it isn't homerism if you're right" mantra? I know that it technically disappeared with the 18to88 banner, but come one!!!!

@buymymonkey Somewhat agree. The familiarity of a divisional foe can always be upset-fuel. However, there were times during yesterday's game that we made the Titans look like eventual SB champs.

@WyattL I love the optimism, but one has to ask: is it really a good thing to have a glass half full ... when you know that it's only going to get Linked*, Sateled° and/or DHB'd in the first round?
*spun around like a turnstyle
the DHB is self-explanatory
@Payton @MarcusDugan This comment reminded me of one of DB's 5 yd runs on first down. I don't even recall at what stage in the game it was or on which frustratingly pointless (literally) drive it happened ... but he was hit after a 2-3 yd gain, maybe. Kid kept driving his legs and pushing and, sure enough, took at least 2 defenders forward for an extra 2-3 yds. Impressive, for our "speed" guy.

@BDiddy I live out of the area, so I don't get to see every game...I did get to see this one. And I'm still washing my eyes. Save for the single TD drive, this was easily one of the most impotent offensive performances I recall seeing in a long time, and I blame it primarily on the O-line.

@Payton @matt_has Crap. So I'm out then, I guess?
I'll repeat what I said on the twitters the other day: Irsay & co. want the Colts to be a "power run" team? I want to be Brad Pitt's body double. Without the "talent", it just ain't gonna happen.
And really, it's not the best thing for either party.

@Bobman1 I don't see any way the suspension turns into a fine. Walden is lucky he didn't knock out a few of Walker's teeth. Totally agree with you on a man to man apology, and for all we know, that could have happened already.

@chip_bennett @MarcusDugan @unitas19 The Bengals are absolutely loaded - defense and skill positions. The one glaring exception is Dalton, and he's no scrub. Dude is just so ridiculously inconsistent, and, as you say, very easily rattled.
When they win, they to do so convincingly. Just seems like they should be able to do that on a more consistent basis. Must be some of the Cleveland curse creeping into Cinci.
@DISPLACED_COLTS_FAN The thing is, though, the opposition HAS been changing their approach at half. Seattle comes to mind – Lynch was having his way running the ball in the first half. I don't know/have the stats, but iirc he barely touched the ball in the 2H. Same w/CJ last night.
I do like your thinking re: the offense looking for its identity and using the remainder of the schedule to make adjustments and "find" it. Let's just hope they continue to win while doing so. The AFC is so bad, we have a shot at a first round bye ... and as long as that's in my head, I'll have a hard time lowering expectations.
What can I say? I'll admit it - like most long time Colts fans, I've been spoiled.

@TheGreatMisdirect In the bigger picture, these comebacks are more sad than exciting.
I have the utmost confidence in Luck, but zero confidence in this team, including the coaches. The "crapshoot" theory will surely be put to the test this January.
