Cotls 9-4... 6 in a row...

The Colts have won 6 straight games now. This was a total team win. The last few games they had to hit a couple of plays to win late but we dominated the whole game. I liked to see the defense step it up again. Manning looked like he and the WR got there timing together more. This is going to be the team to beat come playoff time. They are getting hot at the right time and no team is going to want to play them.

 

There is only one thing that concerned me and that is the running game. We didn't run the ball like we should have. We only had 57 total rushing yards by Joe and Dom. I think this isn't going to be a problem but I hope they can run the ball next week against Detriot.

FAMILIAR FORMULA 8-4... Getting Closer....

With the Colts not scoring one single TD on offense today they manage to get out of the game with a win. Familiar Formula you might say that is keeping this Colts team a live this season getting win after win. Yes, Thats right the Defense is the Colts Forumula this year to keep on winning. They have won the last 5 games but have only won by a total of 20 points throughout the winning streak. Peyton didn't play good today but the whole defense did. They played like all of us Colts fans want them to play. Remember the Colts are playing great defense without the Defenseive player of the year out..

The whole offense was lost from the first play. Addai fumbled the first play of the game then nothing really clicked after that. Manning fumbled on a QB sneak, then threw two INTS. I know the Defense stepped up for the win. I think this was a one game thing where the Colts actually felt more comfortable with there Defense out there than the Offense.

I know Manning and crew will turn this around next week...

Colts 7-4 after kicking a FG as time Expired

The Colts are now on a 4 game winnning streak. Many people still doesn't think this team is good enough to wint he SuperBowl but I have to disagree with you. This team is getting hot when they ned to be. They have most of there timing down still a little off but as the we3eks go on as I postedin the other Blogs they will get it all together come playoff time.

Manning last night against the Chargers didn't throw 6 INTs but he did have one however this was still a great game he played. That INT was the only mistake he had all night. He had a great play call on 4th and inches that he play action then got the first down to Marvin Harrison.

Running the ball the last two games looked alot better then all of the season. John Madden poiinted out thtat the Cotls are running alot of shotgun formation so it will be hard to run the ball consist until the do dingle back formation. Good point John but even witht he shot gun the Colts still managed to run for 91 yards. This isn't alot but for the defense we were playing this is huge..

Colts back on track 6-4

Now after ten games this season the Colts are 6-4. They have won the last 3 games they have played. I honestly believe they are back on track. The offense looked great the last 3 games. The Defense could still improve but as long as the offense looks good then we are okay with that.

Back to 500. Can't complain

With the win last night against the Patriots put the Colts back at 500. There is a lot to take from this game some being bad and some being good... The bad first off was not being able to get going after we scored during the first half. We were flatt after Manning to Gonzo combo scored. The good Sanders looked healthly, Manning no INT or the WR no tipped passes, and the second half. We came out during the second half wanting to win the game not just stick around with them. We only won by 3 points but if the team didn't come out in the second half like they did we would have gotten beat...

With being 4-4 we can't complain.. We have a very favorable schedule coming up so maybe we can string some together and get going like we know we can. Lets Go Colts...

Colts 3-3 after getting stomped by GreenBay...

After the Colts left Green Bay on Sunday they left 3-3. I would never thought with six games played that the Colts would be 3-3 especially after last weeks game against the Ravens.. I know there were a lot of non calls but we can't have Peyton throwing two INT and get returned for TDs.. We can't allow that. For the whole game it didn't look like Peyton was comfortable at all.... I give a lot of credit to Green Bay for keeping our offense off the field in the first half but in the second half we had the ball a lot and didn't do anything with it.... I just hope we can get going again against the Titans or we will lose the divsion and maybe ourselves...

Colts 2-2 after escaping with a Win from Texans..

The Colts improve there record to 2-2 after pulling one out in the fourth quater against the Texans.

With this being said the Colts need to play the whole game instead of the first two possesions and they last one of the game. The Colts are a very good team still on offense, and on defense without Bob. They proved that they can hussle to the ball the last 4 mins of the game against Houston. Hopefully against the Ravens the Colts will play the whole game instead of just 10 mins of it. I still belieave in this Defense with or without Bob. Going into the game vs. the Ravens coach Dungy will put some things together to make this Defense come out in play like the Colts did last year...

Has anyone else read on the boards that the Colts are a fluke and that they won't make the playoffs and that Eli is way better the Peyton??? Come on now I know I'm aa Colts fan but I can tell you tat Eli is playing better then Peyton but he isn't better then him. The Colts will make the playoffs....

Colts are 1-2 going into the bye week.

The Colts are 1-2 going into the bye week. From the first 3 games I have obsereved that the starters need to play more during preseason. Peyton so far this season has looked like a sluggish QB this has alot to do with the removal of the bursa Sac.. So far during the first 3 games his stats are

120 ATT. 71 Comp. 59.2 % 784 Yards 261.3 YDs/G 3 TD 4 INT 73.1% Rating 

Even with these stats he still gives the team a chance to win. He has to improve also if he wants to continue to the playoffs... 

 

The Defense needs to do some soul searching to see what each indivual players can do to stop the run. With Bob Sanders in the lineup the Colts are allowing over 181.5 yards agame on the ground...  Bob is a major part of the Colts defense to stopping the run but he can't do it all. The players need to do some soul searching to do something different to stop the run...
