    Holy moley, another one? That's interceptions on consecutive plays, I think.

    I guess you can't say the loss of Bulger didn't make a difference...

    45-20 Colts. That's a 42-point turnaround.

    I'm happy the Colts are winning and I'm happy the record was broken.

    A win's a win, but I can't help but think about how the game might have turned out if Bulger didn't go out. The Rams score 20 points with Bulger and they never score again when he goes out.

    True enough, I jumped the gun on that one.

    Colts are beating the spread too, didn't expect that.

    Now why didn't they just give it to Jackson on every play before? He's completely shredding the D.

    Unless you want to say Bulger was single-handedly making our offense and defense both blow, I wouldn't worry about it.

    It's like I said earlier, and will say again every time I see a fan of Pacers/Colts look for a reason not to be happy: Did the teams that beat us care that we weren't good enough? Did they care when we were hurt? Did that cheapen the win for them? No. And I won't let it cheapen our victories, either. No what-ifs.

    Terrible, terrible defensive sequence there. This team is so bipolar. If they can't make the big play, they completely bomb.

    We gave up 29 points to our first 5 opponents combined, and 28 points tonight to the Rams alone. Yikes.

    Well...

    Bulger did get hurt and he was out for the majority of the game.

    You cannot deal with what-ifs and other "possible" scenarios. You deal with the scenario that is dealt to you.

    Bulger got hurt because of a play our defense made, the interception. I say tough noogies.

    And I can see the reason why I don't come to these game threads anymore was in full force today.

    Yeah, they won, but it wasn't a particularly impressive victory. I still don't think they're quite as good as their record would imply. The defense was not very good - I don't think they'll fare well against a team with both a good offense and a good defense.

    But I suppose such a sig is my just desserts. Or comeuppance. I dunno which word I like better.

    Hmm, Jags are decent on offense, I suppose. They also had the disadvantage of not being able to scout the Colts' new D very much. Anyway, I was thinking more along the lines of San Diego, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, maybe Denver. Actually, that's about it. Fortunately they play most of those teams later, so we'll see.

    But the Rams are number 2 in O, so it's to be expected. But after teh 17 in the first quarter, our D dominated them. Gotta love it

    Jax is good enough to be mentioned with those teams. Their defense is killer, and Leftwich, Taylor, and Smith and their other weapons is not a bad offense at all. In fact, if their O line was a bit better, it'd be a very good offense.

    I'm not so sure, if I was the Rams, I wouldn't have reeled in the offense with a big lead and a backup QB in the game... and the way Jackson was running all over the Colts anyway. I know playing conservatively wasn't what got the big lead but when Bulger went down... things changed.

    If the Rams could've taken some air out of the ball with the lead and used some clock maybe they keep possession and eat the clock forcing the Colts out of their gameplan and it is the Colts' turning the ball over instead of making momentum changing interceptions.

    But that is just me...

    A win is a win but I don't want to spot too many teams 17 points no matter what. It was nice to see the Colts not panic and keep their head in the game. That may pay dividends down the road when they face a deficit again (but let's hope it is a smaller deficit).

    All this about Marc Bulger. The man isn't exactly Peyton Manning himself. Well, he sort of is. He's like a young Peyton Manning. He throws a lot of interceptions.

    I'm not sold that the result would have been any different. The guy they had did complete 11 passes in a row at one point.
