    Default Cincinnati at Indianapolis - Game thread - 12/7/08

    (1-10-1) Being crushed by division-rival Baltimore last week certainly didn't bring any positives to the Bengals poor season, but they hope this week that can change.

    (8-4) After an ugly offensive showing last week in Cleveland, the Colts hope being back at home can wake the offense up.

    OK - worst defense in football (not sure about stats but watch 'em play), indoors, in your own house . . .

    If the Colts don't put up at least 30 & get Addai 100 yds I'd say it's a disappointment on offense. When you have a scrimmage that counts in the standings you better get some things done.

    Actually I thought their defense this year was pretty decent. They've certainly played better than the offense, and better than years past.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Games I've seen they've been pretty awful. NO may be worse and there are teams like Detroit & St. Louis that are about as bad. But Cincy's spent the year making opposing QB's look like HOF'ers.

    Well, except for Donovan McNabb.

    I actually think Cincinnati's secondary has been surprisingly good this year. They have gotten torched in couple games (Maybe you saw those ones), but aside from that they haven't been too bad.

    I do think you are correct though about the Colts needing to put up at least 30 on them for it to not be a disappointing game. Last week was a disappointment for some Colts fans, but the Browns have traditionally played Manning's Colts very well...probably because nobody knows Manning better defensively than Romeo Crennel. Colts win this one in a blowout.

    Rhodes and the Indy crowd need to work on that "Luke Leap"...

    How many INT's is Kelvin gonna get on that exact same route until teams stop throwing that at him?

    Boy, good thing for Cincy that Marvin has lost a step or he might have scored on them.

    Colts did what they were supposed to. Be nice to see a running game. Is it just me or do Indy's RB's spend WAY too much time pitter-pattering around behind the line? Sometimes you have to hit it. I feel like Travis Best put on shoulder pads or something.

    Anyway, 1 scrimmage down, one more next week and Jacksonville's pretty much quit. Good way for Manning to really find his rhythm.
