    Default Indianapolis at Jacksonville - Thursday Night Special - 12/18/08

    (10-4) With a win, the Colts will clench a playoff berth with a wild card.

    (5-9) Earlier this year, the Jaguars came into Lucas Oil Stadium and beat the Colts by a field goal. They hope for another win against their division rival.

    Time: 8:15 PM

    Location: Jacksonville Stadium, Jacksonville, FL

    Television:
    Super Bowl XLI Champions
    2000 Eastern Conference Champions

    If it wasn't for the fact that I hate Jacksonville I'd say a Colts loss here would be a good thing - let 'em rediscover a sense of desperation for the last game of the season.

    But I hate Jacksonville for some reason.

    Jags always play us tough anyway. If they inhale time of possession like the first game (seems like it wasn't even this season doesn't it?) it could get interesting. Big relative save-face shot for them late season on Thursday night. Potential is there for a good game. We'll see.

    Because one touchdown drive invalidates seven straight wins?

    When a team with a terrible, injured offense does it that easily, yes.

    I don't want to say I told you so, but...

    This team is going to get shellacked by Tennessee. Can't seem them making the playoffs, although I think it'll be a blessing in disguise. Should save them the inevitable embarrassment.

    Colts didn't really deserve any points for that drive anyway. That hold call was BS, the Jags woulda gotten 7.

    Running wide on 4th and 1? Running at all on 4th and 1?

    Horrible horrible play call.

    EDIT: 3rd and 1! Doesn't change the downright stupidity of the call having been shut down all half on the ground.

    Defense getting run over? Check.

    Running game not working? Check.

    A missed Vinatieri field goal? Check.

    Well, this game definitely has the symptoms of Colts loss, but they're still in it because of the excellent passing game by Manning and the receivers.

    Maybe a loss will serve as a wake up call just in time for the playoffs. If a loss shakes them up enough to get their act together, maybe we'll see a better team in the playoffs.

    Um, if they lose, they have to beat Tennessee to get in, and that will not happen.

    If they lose, they're out.

    Game, set, season. All over.

    True. I guess I was hoping that Tennessee would rest their starters since they've already locked into a first round bye. But I guess Jeff Fisher isn't Tony Dungy.

    Yeah, Fisher is actually a pretty good coach.

    This game should show Dungy why you can't rest half your team every other week. Of course he won't learn. Never does.

    The Jags are playing the Colts how the Pats always do. Insanely long drives with plenty of running and dink/dump attempts that keep the Colts offense off the field and their undersized defense on it. The Colts need to stop running stretch plays..they have done it 3-4 times now and every time has resulted in a loss. Stick to draws or straight runs up the middle.

    The game's still winnable. The defense just needs to not play horribly and the running game really needs to get going. Either that or Manning has to keep playing perfectly.

    Great grab by Clark! (While Collinsworth gushes only over Manning!)

    Bout time they ditched the run. So now we've got a game again. Will the defense show any pride or will they insist on being pansys all night?

    No amount of hyperbole can express how bad this defense is.

    Don't let the stats deceive you, it's worse than '06.

    This is ridiculous. How many 3rd and 8's with three missed tackles can you give up on one drive?

    Did you see Jones-Drew brushing aside defenders with just one arm?

    It looked like he just swatting flies.

    The sad thing is that Jacksonville knows it can just take its time getting down the field.

    I'd rather the Colts just focus on stopping the run even at the expense of the pass defense. At least that way you're betting on Garrard to beat you instead of giving Maurice Jones-Drew 7 yards on every play.
