That's more like it. If the Colts are going to spend any time on the road this postseason , they're going to need to reclaim their old personality as a team that can run anywhere and on anybody.

I want manning to stay in long enough to get 56 yards for his 8th 4000 yard season out of 10. that would be sad if he got pulled with him needing one good reception before 4000. to think that favre who has played 16 season has 6 4000 years and marino only has 3 (2-4000 and 1-5000), elway 1-4000 and brady in his 7th year with 2-4000, thats an amazing feat. Id hope dungy leaves in manning to get his 4000 and then he can take him out.

the colts needed this to go out on a positive note. what the colts have done this year without harrison, freeney and many other starters is nothing short of amazing.

and not for one second do I think they are done with their amazing feats for this year

I think Manning may play more than you think. He has to get some in game work with Marvin next week so he stays sharp, plus they need to move Gonzo back in the slot. This will open the play book even more and give playoff teams something to scheme for, making it harder on their opponents. I think starters play a half...and maybe one series after halftime to make an adjustment as a unit.

If we rest everyone, that is technically a 3 week layoff...don't like it.

How about 'Plod?' Of course, this word would show a poetic style that is not known to Sport's Writers.
All joking aside, I enjoy your report card each week. I still miss Hunter, though. I guess even your Report Card has continued on its winning track with one contributor on the IR due to a strained lower mandible.

After the first quarter (Houston marches straight down the field, unhindered, and scores easily, and the Offense stalls in the Red Zone) the Colts were awesome...except that is for special teams. How many yards did we give up on kick-off returns...again? And how many times did TJ fair-catch inside the ten? I'm of the opinion that maybe we shouldn't even post a return guy and not even try to have a return scheme. Let's just take our chances on where the ball bounces...maybe it goes in the endzone...maybe it bounces upfield...and maybe, we avoid silly illegal blocking and holding penalties. As for defending the kick-off, it's ridiculous that a team this good should be this bad at defending the kick-off! If the Colts work on anything in the next three weeks, it should be this!

Mr. Kravitz, with all due respect, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Keep Mr. Manning in for more than one drive. DO NOT let this team throttle down. That killed them in 2005 and I won't hear anything different. Besides, as a bit of a numbers freak, I want to see my boy get at least 4,000 yards passing again.

NE is vulnerable...and we need revenge. Keep the starters in for a half. NE is going down at home.

The point was made about Marvin coming back. Remember, they may practice quite a bit together, but game conditions are where it matters, and Marvin, Reggie, Dallas and Gonzo will all need to work on their route timing with Peyton, and the line may need to make some adjustments as well, before the playoffs begin.
You want to have your engine tuned properly prior to the race, not during.

You are looked for a word to describe Dallas Clark's 15 yard run? How about galloped? It's not a full speed run like you'd get from a running back, but it got the job done.

IMO- do not rest Manning next week. I'll they play him and the others just like they did this week. See how the game is going and make the decisions at that point. Plus, now that the game has been changed to the Sunday night game, there's no way Manning sits until the 3rd quarter.

Go Colts!
Beat the Titans!

I'm in full agreement with the comparisons to the 2005 season. We cannot rest a rhythem based offense for more than a week or two and expect to get far in the playoffs. I would like to see a similar approach to the Titans game that was used in the Texans game. The Houston game was one of the few post-Harrison-injury games where the Colts offense executed to their potential and we need to keep the momentum.
Let's get to 14 and 2 and eliminate the Titans' playoff hopes while ending at 6-0 in the toughest division in the league.

I am not up on enough stats, but the 4000 yards passing record sounds reasonable to me. Keep Peyton in at least that long and maybe longer. And, this business about playing Marvin --- I'll believe it when I see it. That deal is the weirdest thing I have ever heard from the Colts.

Better word to describe Clark's run that "romp" or ""rumble"? "Lumbered" or "trundled," maybe :-)

The Colts are simply amazing and the team most fun to watch in the NFL. They set the standard w/ their class and professionalism. A Colt vs. Cowboy Super Bowl would be cool.

How about "Dallas for a 15 yard scamper!"

Oh, and ESPN doesn't do the whole "jacked up" thing anymore.
