I appreciate and generally agree with your assessment. It seems to me that there is a tendency to let the opponent get in a few good licks before they start performing at the high level. Early points by the opposition can kill a team's chances in the playoffs. Have you looked at this statistically? I wouldn't know how to do that without a lot of box score analysis and more patience than I have got. Am I wrong? Keep up the good work.

A couple of comments
First I like seeing our backups getting more playing time. I think it helps them stay loose and ready to help us out on special teams. I would like to see us beef up our special teams in the playoffs with a few more starters inserted when it counts.
As far as Marvin is concerned? It's got me wondering. I think the Colts managment should be be more up front with us about that. My trust in them is being tested.
Go Colts
Go Cowboys

Oh Santa, maybe you could pick up Russ Purnell and put him in your sack and take him back to the North Pole with you...at least until after the Super Bowl is over. He can still have his ring, but don't you need an extra elf for the month of January? And then maybe, someone else can do something with this special teams unit. I'm so tired of seeing fair-catches inside the ten! I'm so tired of giving bad teams the ball at the 35, 40, 45, 50 after a kick-off...In most cases, all teams need is one play and they're already in Colts territory. Think about it...we have the second ranked defense, a feat which is even more amazing given that we always have to defend with the opposition having great field position.

The Colts need to play all out next Sunday night. The Colts should not let the Titans in the Playoffs. Cleveland would be preferable if the Colts were to play that seed. They need to get Harrison some game time prior to the Playoffs thats for sure. Do you think the Patriots are going to take their foot off the pedal. Not gonna happen. Good Luck Colts and beat the Titans.

This is relevant to the conversation how, exactly?

Good article, not much to complain about except for ST. I close my eyes when Adam kicks off. Oh, well...you can't have everything.

Merry Christmas!
Go Colts!
Beat the Titans!

This is simply the best Colts team of all time. Only a few people around central Indiana realize this. The growing number of Sports Talking Heads [like Kornheiser] can wax poetic about the Patriots all they want. This season is setting up perfectly for us in my opinion. I could not have written the script any better. A victory in New England will be, well....., unbelievable. Got a feeling we may be playing at home against Jacksonville for the AFC championship though. Let all Colt fans appreciate the excellence we have witnessed the past several years! Everything that was wrong in the 80's and 90's for the most part, has been righted in a way none of us could have envisioned. Go Colts!

I wrote last year about this time (after the Jacksonville game), questioning why Tony retained Ron Meeks and the defensive staff. I was proven wrong during the playoffs, and that has carried over through this year,
Kudos to Coach Meeks and his staff. They have done an outstanding job.
Keep up the great work.

If this is the best colts team of all timethen thats not saying much about the franchise the Pats have already beat them in their own house and will be nothing more than an afterthought in the playoffs. Ive noticed colts fans are hopeing the jags beat the pats because its something the colts fans know their team cann't do this year.

It's nice to see a team that gets it. When you've clearly dominated your opponent and you don't need to win the game, you pull your starters early in the 4th (or in Addai's case, late in the 2nd) and let you backups get some work.

Yesterday, what I saw in NE was a disgrace to football. I was not surprised at all to see Brady and the Pats chucking the ball deep into the 3rd quarter...that makes sense to me...keep the team sharp, play how you'd play if it meant something. But when there is six minutes in the game and Brady's bombing away like they were down 7 with 4 seconds left, it just made me ill. It made me ill not for Manning and my Colts, but for every QB who ever put on a uniform. It was extremely and painfully clear the only thing on Brady's mind was getting the TD record. Why else would you put yourself in harms way like that? The Dolphins pass rush was pretty steady and Tom was taking hits. If you're going to leave him in the game, why run the risk of running 30-60 yard fly patterns? Try some dump offs, some screens, some quick passes to Welker. As good as the team has been all year at running these types of plays, there is probably a higher probability of scoring on a play like that anyway than there was of connecting on a double teamed Moss 50 yards downfield.

So, as I prepare to watch some football next weekend, I really hope for the sake of a good playoffs this year that they tone it down a notch. It's almost impossible to think he won't get the record, I just hope they're smart about it. Watching Brady get injured while playing in a meaningless game would actually upset me. If he was out, NE has no chance and if someone beats them this year, I want it to be straight up. I couldn't stomach the years upon years of belly aching and excuses that would follow. A Brady vs. Manning (if we are fortunate enough to make it that far) rematch is great for the NFL.
