    Where is the vaunted Colt's pass rush?

    it comes and goes. Freeney and Mathis are two players who on a three four team like New england would be linebackers so, Joe Thomas man-handled those two when it came to run plays. this defense shows its true colors when a team doesn't have to throw the ball.

    It definitely feels strange knowing that the Colts are completely irrelevant right now. We had 8-9 years of being in contention. Every year we went into the season knowing that the playoffs were essentially guaranteed. During Manning's 13 years there were just two bad years: His 1998 rookie season and the 2001 (Playoffs?!) one.

    Just shows you the impact that one player can have.

    It definitely feels different watching the NFL from the perspective of knowing your team isn't good as opposed to worrying about the elite teams that you might have to face in the postseason. It's a lot like watching the Pacers from about 05-10.

    Actually he kind of was that team was built on running the football. They lead the NFL last year in rushing Jamaal was by far the most important player to the Chiefs success last year and it wasn't even close. When that team ran the ball well last year they won when they didn't they lost I would say he was a huge key to the success.
    Don't worry, games against the Colts always let pedestrians look like professional NFL running backs and 3rd string RBs look like franchise players. Someone will have a coming out day in that game

    But the Browns did throw the ball a lot. The Colts actually contained the run rather efficiently. Need more than one difference making play - the Freeney sack/strip early.

    I don't think this is worthy of its own thread - maybe - but I do have a question ...........

    Where was Manning yesterday ? I can understand last week - recent surgery, long flight, on the road for a few days - OK. But yesterday ?? Couldn't he have found 4 hours in his day to be there with his team & teammates ?

    He was told to stay away. The TV announcers talked about it at the very beginning of the broadcast.

    I bet he was in the training room/lockerroom area and just didn't go out on the field.

    The first game Peyton is on the sideline will probably have a PiP of him on the sideline and the actual game.

    bring on andrew luck.

    the more i think about it, having a crappy record this season might be beneficial in the long run if we do manage to land #1. get luck, have him under peyton for a year or two, then when manning can't handle being starter anymore we have luck to step into his shoes.

    but then again, it seems that our defense is the real problem

    This team is so flawed that it painted itself into a real nightmare scenario. If by draft time it's clear or looking more than likely Peyton's recovery is going to be limited then using a high draft pick on a QB is a pretty easy call. But what if Peyton is looking good by winter? What if tests and workouts (possibly even games) show him 100% OK and largely unaffected by the injury... Do you still use the pick to get his heir apparent or do you use the pick to fixed this flawed team so we can actually have a modern NFL defense and get a team off the field?

    We have Peyton Manning... we should be the team controlling the clock and game.

    If we can get our future franchise QB with Luck then that is where the Colts need to go.

    I'm not sure drafting Luck is the best option.

    It's possible that Manning can heal and have 3 or 4 more good years left in him. Do you think Andrew Luck wants to sit as a backup until he is 26 or so? No way. He wants to play right now. Just like Manning wouldn't have wanted to back up Marino for 3-4 years, Luck isn't going to want to back up Manning. He will want to play immediately like Peyton, Sanchez, Bradford, Stafford, etc. And he should as he will definitely be good enough to start on several NFL teams. Luck's camp would maybe stage a holdout if he was coming here to be a backup for a few years. And I wouldn't blame them.

    If around winter time it's looking like Peyton will be good to go for next year and beyond then we do not need to draft Luck. If we are indeed bad enough to have the Luck pick, then we should shop it to the highest bidder and get some good pieces that can help us maximize our potential in Manning's final years.

    And that's why you select Luck. Anything is possible, including bad. Aaron Rogers survived that humiliation.

    Aaron Rogers wasn't nearly as hyped as Luck. And I still highly question if the Colts are the worst team in the league.

    Do we really want to see Peyton on the sideline with a neck brace on? Talk about panic in the streets. The image of that being plastered everywhere would freak people out. He's going to be wearing a neck brace for several weeks.

    Not to mention the guy is not going to be able to turn his head or move very quickly. Imagine if he got barreled over by a guy running out of bounds and got hurt worse.

    Seattle will give us a run for our money but they play in a weak divison. IMo we are very close to being the worst team this year. We can battle it out in the Luck bowl with the Chiefs but they will still be able to run the ball on us without Jamal Charles. It will be close but a lot of people thought the Browns were going to be easier than they were.

    I meant on the sidelines. So I guess not?

    I doubt we'll see Peyton much at all.

    On a happy note, Peyton was apparently at practice today walking laps. Even was joking with the reporters.
