Hey all
Im from Coltfreaks.com for starters so feel free to sign up there and talk football with us Colts fans there, this week sure is going to be a great game. You guys do have a habbit of playing us tough especially on the Road, I was very impressed with your win on the road in Carolina today. Your win over the Chiefs who IMO are the worst team in the NFL was to be expected.

Schaub is looking like a mature quarterback, his patience in the pocket is impressive. We sure will need to get pressure on him to upset your offenses timing. I hope Keiaho and Morris are fit and can play unlike today against the Titans, I look forward to talking about the game as the week moves on.

It was indeed the Texans.
Since that game both teams have been undefeated, obviously we have won more, let me remind you we won 4 straight playoff games on the way to Superbowl Glory.

Thanks for making me welcome and I plan on sticking around here after the game, afterall you guys are in the same division.

There are few things on this planet that are worse than a Titans fan.

Welcome to the party! This will be a tough game for the Super Bowl Colts. Manning has not lost a game since he was shut down by the Texans last season. This streak will be tested.

This season has played out just like I had wanted it to. The Colts are 2-0, we are 2-0. If my vision for this season continues to hold true, we will turn out to have been the first and last team to beat the Super Bowl Colts.

The AFC South, strong as it is, does not have a definitive #1 team anymore.

Kinda scary man.

Because I thought the Colts would run over the Titans and the Jags would not show up(hard to do that against the Falcons. Teams can not show up and still win.)

All of a sudden...the Titans are looking good, the Jags are looking alright, and the Colts...are still the Colts.

This is a tough division...but this ain't your Casserly's Texans either :texflag:

I guess that will be alot clearer after next Sundays game against you guys, today we won a tight game on the road in which we played really poor to be honest. I was rather frustrated with the play calling today.

I agree. From what I saw, it was not the best outing that Peyton has ever had. considering you guys lost to them on the road last year, I am sure it was a plus to secure the W. It would be hard for Mr. Jesus Young to beat you in Indy, despite his god-like powers.

I am curious, though. What is the best Indy message board? I will definitely need to invest some time into that board over the course of this season.

Vince Gump is average, I dont care what anyone says I dont think I will ever rate him as a player, maybe as a running qb but never a qb who can stand in the pocket and hit wide receivers down field with accuracy.

Greatly appreciated! As a matter of fact, I visited those two that you told me to stay away from. They looked pretty bad. What is your name on the freaks MB? Same?

Also, just to stay on topic, I am curious about injuries. As of right now, Andre Johnson is questionable with a bruised knee, no MRI yet. He looked fine after the game though, with just a slight limp. He will be in the game if his leg will let him. Ahman Green looked a bit shaken up, but he will be fine.

What do the Indy injuries look like?

I am also daedge at Coltfreaks.com. The only thing is Coltfreaks was hacked in the offseason 3 times and the final time it was down for over a month and the entire forum had to be deleted and started over, so everyone had to sign up again and we still havent got as many users as had before the hack. But its slowly getting back to where it was which is encouraging.

We are in better shape then you guys, Morris and Freddy Keiaho should both be able to go against you guys next week. Keiaho would have infact played had it been a playoff game for instance, its not serious nor is Morris's so heres hoping everyone is good to go. Bob Sanders is obviously in fine form and has put his injuries behind him as he finished with 2.5 sacks and 11 tackles.

Well welcome this: The only thing I'm looking forward to is seeing Manning on a strecher. I hate the Colts. They are the franchise of the trators. Anyone who supports them is a trator. The Irsay's are the lowest form of human being God ever created. Even lower than the Adam's Family. I hope Mario punks Uhgo and drops straight down on Abdia's knee so that he never sees the feild again. We can't stomp you in the dirt deep enough to satisfy me. You are the last dragon on our way to the SB. I don't want to befreind you I want to cut your head off and shove the carcass into a bottomlees pit. If you leave here with twenty guy's IRed and no chance at all of winning another game this year, it will be a good day. Indianpolis is floatsome in a tolet bowl and somebody should of flushed long ago.

How is your OL holding up? I saw that Manning was hit a couple times and sacked at least once. Think they're still trying to gel, especially after your LT retired, or do you foresee this as a normal for this season. (Pressure on Manning).

I'm very interested to see how our young DL goes up against what I believe to be one of the most cohesive OL in the league.

Its holding up quite well, we are missing Glenn slightly but overall theres no real visible lack in quality. Against the Titans there were to many false starts penaltys, on the road there will be a few yeah but It was just a sloppy game for the most part and im glad its over with, and with a W in the column.

P.S Manning did get hit a few times and he was also sacked twice in the game.

What the heck was that all about..?? If theres one thing I can't stand, its fans cheering and hoping for anyone to get hurt. Usually only Eagles fans stoop that low.

Anyway, I personally wish the colts weren't in the AFC South, because I actually enjoy watching their team. Unfortunatley, now that we are starting to make some noise, the only thing I can possibly hope for is to see Manning yelling angrily at his OL after a blow out in Houston! Here are the important points of the game as I see them:

Our DL vs. your OL - Our DL has come alive. Your OL is one of the best in the league. Whoever dominates at the LOS is sure to make all the difference. We aren't a big blitzing team, but give Manning any time, and he'll cut you to pieces. If we can get pressure on him with only 4 down lineman, the game could be a good one indeed.

Our run defense vs. Addai - Joe is great. He and Maroney are really showing Reggie Bust to be the loser he is. I can't believe he went 20+ picks later than Bush. Of course, he's got Manning to take the pressure off him. If we can shut down Addai, or at least limit his effectiveness, than we may have a pretty good chance at making the Colts one dimensional. I dont think this is too far fetched, especially given our history this year so far (40 yards to LJ, 66 to the Panthers)

Our safeties vs your WRs - Obviously the nudge goes to Harrison + Wayne + Clark, BUT if we can at least limit the long balls, we could stay in it long enough to win this one.

Your DL vs our OL - Who knew the Texans offensive line could play so well? Everyone in Houston, thats who. Despite our great play so far, we are far from one of the top lines in the league. Schaubs quick decisions should help negate Freeney, as he is more of an outside rusher. Only time will tell though

Our RBs vs Bob Sanders - Last time we beat you, we ran the ball right down yoru throats. However, Sanders wasn't on the team. Since you've had him back, you guys have been down right dirty on run defense. Can we still run the ball at you? Maybe, but we'll have to wait until Sunday to find out

I received total consciousness in regards to the power of the Pitt during our 2-14 campaign. Even when things were falling apart, Pittman executed flawlessy. I will never forget the time he was able to accrue 27 revolutions of the pigskin, on one long snap. Easily the penultimate moment in Texans' Long Snapper history.

But can Bagonia long snap his groceries into the shoping cart or to the driver of a moving car.

Anywho back to the Horsey, I am here to tell you that Peyton better brush up on his sign cause he will not be able to hear himself breath. And tell your Recievers not to try a TO er chad Johnson cause they aint welcome in the Bull Pen or the darkside. Good luck to you Mr. Ed, oh I am sorry Daedge, I thought you would change your name since daedge is in Arizona.

Colts fans,
I want to apologize for threetoedpete. I don't know where his post came from but it's definitely unacceptable. We welcome all fans who want to talk football.

As for our upcoming match up. I've virtually lost all hope now that Andre Johnson has been been labled as doubtful for the game this Sunday. His contribution to this team is so much more than just his receiving skills. He's our captain. He's our leader. His presence alone is tremendous. Yes, I know he only garnered four catches in our victory last season but him being there mattered. The key for the Texans this time around will continue to be Ron Dayne. If we can just control the time of possession, we just may have a chance. I just don't have enough faith in our secondary.

I do have a question for you Colts fans. What happened last Sunday? Are the Titans better than they appear to be on paper or was this just a terrible game overall for the Colts?

The Titans have played us tough in the last 3 meetings, They have managed to slow down our offense rather well, but on Sunday we really did play poorly. Too many penalties and stupid mistakes we turned the ball over twice, there were a few protection issues and we just didnt execute well enough. Some of the play calling IMO was rather poor and almost aragant at times also.

I pretty much agree. The Colts had a 1st down in Titan territory at the 2 minute warning, and called pass on 3 consecutive plays. Vanden Bosch finally drops Manning on 3rd down, taking the Colts out of FG range. Gave the Titans way too much time, and they were a dropped pass from a game winning FG attempt (just like last season).

It's hard to learn much about how the Colts will defend the Texans from watching the Tennessee game, because the Titans offense is so different. But, we know that they'll play cover 2. And with Andre out, the may move their safeties up. Maybe. I'd look for that deep crossing route to Daniels or Putzier, if the Colts try to sneak up too much.

The Titans did a good job of bend but don't break defense in the 2nd half. The d-line just teed off on Manning, who had to throw shorter routes. The Titans defensive front was too physical for the Indy o-line, and the Texans will have to be even more so. Mario versus the rookie Ugoh should be a big advantage in the Texans favor.

I guess that will be alot clearer after next Sundays game against you guys, today we won a tight game on the road in which we played really poor to be honest. I was rather frustrated with the play calling today.

Colts to the Titans what the Texans are to the Jags.

Teams that play against each other, throw stats out of the window.

over the next few years, great AFC South rivalries will develop (as long as everyone stays healthy)

Ugoh is someone that I've been watching very closely albeit I missed his performance in the Titans game. I want a honest answer from the Colts fans. Does Tony Ugoh make losing Tarik Glenn matter? I thought he looked outstanding against the Saints but then again the Saints don't really have a superior defensive line. I'm very curious because Manning has now been sacked three times (i think) and intercepted once yet his passing numbers remain the norm for Peyton Manning. So why are points not being put on the board? They have a new weapon in Gonzalez making the Colts' WR corps a fearsome four altogether.

First of all I dont know how you can question why points arent being put on the board, we did score 41 in week one followed by 22 yesterday, thats 63 ponts in two games. 4th most in the NFL and 3rd most in the AFC and I expect us to finish the season with close to the most points scored.

Ugoh has played rather well for a rookie in his first two NFL starts, no matter what he is no Tarik Glenn as yet and thats to be expected. But there is still no real weakness in our OL, and I really dont see Mario dominating him at all. When offensive lineman have gone down to injury in the past we have a great habbit of slotting backups and rookies in, and you would barely know it most of the time.

Our offense had a off day mainly due to stupid mistakes on Sunday, it would be suicide to underestimate our offense :shades:

Have you seen Mario as of late though?

It wouldn't be fair to say he's not going to make a impact. Thing is Mario, Okoye, and Travis has proven so far to be too much for Olines to handle at the moment. Its not all about Mario any more, I think we can pressure Manning.

I don't see Ugoh doing holding up so well. I am not trying to make Mario as this beast that is unstoppable, but we have 3 solid guys on that line, then we rotate with guys that come in and just make plays and play with a lot of heart.

Also I think we have a better Dline the Saints and the Titans, so it shall be fun.

Maybe I am being a bit optismistic, but I think we can win this game at home.

I don't know man. Ever since the 3rd preaseason game this Dline has looked great. I think Travis will be EAGER to get out there and make some plays since he was absent last week, If those DTs play well DeMeco gets to make plays and you guys don't want that.

My problem is the WR core for the Colts is amazing, and we are going to need great Safety play, and Faggins...well we are going to need great safety play. Hopefully Boulware and Demps will be ready. Hopefully our offense can expose the run defense for the Colts...but with Sanders back there who knows.

I have my eye on the Dline though. If they can bring it again, it should bring more turnovers, more stuffage for the Colts run game, and a frustrated Manning.

Hi folks! Indy-native Colts fan checking in for some football talk this week while our teams prepare for what will be the biggest challenge for either team so far this season.

Believe me when I say your team is getting their due respect in Indy this week. No one is taking the Texans lightly, and you should be proud. The AFC South is no longer a marshmallow division and you have yourselves to thank for that. I'm glad it's Houston, too - after losing your long-standing franchise and marinading in expansion team hell for so many years, you guys deserve a team that can do honor to the legacy of Houston football.

Besides, the Jags are a bunch of classless thugs on the field and Vince Young is probably eligible for state benefits for the developmentally disabled. You guys have finally collected your policies on the countless Carr accidents you've endured and it's starting to look like the Schaubmobile could be a nice ride for many miles to come.

I'd also like to compliment you on the general level of realism, intelligence, and courtesy of your fans. You want to win - expect to win - but you're not afflicted with the same blind homerism that Titans fans were last week in thinking they were going to hang up 300 rushing yards on the newly-revamped Colts D.

It's going to be a tough game for you - I don't expect the Colts to lose, but I don't expect a blowout either. Know that the Colts you faced last year and beat was only 1/2 the team you face on Sunday. You'll have to beat us in the air and produce big in all aspects of your D game if you hope to win.

Either way - here's to a great division game with no injuries on either side.

Welcome.

I also believe it will be a hard fought game but I see us pulling it out in the end. You guys have never faced our defense nor have you seen a Houston team with as many offensive weapons as we have this year.

To borrow a phrase, "This is not Casserley's Texans".

You will find some homers here and some complete "Bud Adams's" but for the most part we are cordial and intelligent.

09-18-2007, 11:50 AM
Excellent post, I agree its gonna be a tough game and I believe that its the Texans only chance to win against Indy. I believe the best way to beat Indy is to keep the ball away from them. I dont believe they will rack 300 yds but I do believe they can move the chains and take up alot of time. Your O-line will be tested by our young and hungry D-line. The colts will have to depend on Payton to win because, the Colts may not get alot with the run.

I think the colts will be succeptible to a big play on special team by either Mathis or Jones. I am betting jones because if the colts punt, something they do not do regularly, Jones is gonna go off for a big play.
I think the Texans have been made better because they have been built to stop Indy. Which is a difficult task, and if they do it will put the Texans in a position for the playoffs. After Indy they play Atlanta, Miami, Tennesee. So it looks like if the Texans win they will be in control of their own playoff destiny for a change. If they loose they are not done for , but if they win.... momentum. The Texans have nothing to loose but everything to gain.

Thanks, and I can respect your points of view.

The Colts will have some surprises for Houston this week as well. I expect to win but it's certainly not a lock as it once was not too long ago. Your offense is definitely improved - AJ is really good and I think you may have some other talent at WR as well.

Then again, this season our defense is massively improved even beyond that which took us through the playoffs and Superbowl last year. Some average players have been replaced by bigger, faster, younger, and more physical talent by the names of Hayden, Jackson, Hagler, Morris, and Keiaho... and that's not even mentioning the human SCUD missle that is Bob Sanders.

It'll be a fun game to watch, for sure. I expect it to never really be over until late in the 4th quarter, either way.

The Colts are starting to look like a real scary team. They used to be a one dimensional team. All O and no D. They remind me a lot of the Chargers from last year...great O AND great D. The Texans seem to be trying to get in that same mold, also. This should be a great game that will fuel our rivalry to new heights: the Colts will actually have a reason to recognize we exist and can be a threat to them inside the division.

As far as the regular season of '06 went, that is very true. I'm still a bit amazed that we were able to go 9-0 last year while allowing as many rushing yards as we did.

It's really refreshing to see Houston moving in the right direction as a franchise. I remember clearly seeing the Colts / Texans games in Houston on TV and witnessing some of you folks in the stands literally wearing paper bags over your heads. I understood, though - and I respect that even though people were visibly showing their displeasure with the team, they were still there in the stands. That says a lot.

This is as huge as a game can be this early in the season. The battle for division leads starts this Sunday, and whoever loses will be chasing the winner for weeks to come.

New to this site, but been a Texans fan since before inception.

Great insight from everyone. I'm looking forward to an exciting game on Sunday.

Question for Colts fans:
Has Reggie Wayne become Manning's favorite receiver? Seems he's becoming more and more the focus each week. It's going to be extremely tough defending two Pro-Bowl caliber WRs this Sunday.

This should be the best game to watch on Sunday.

I wouldn't say Reggie is Manning's favorite. That title probably still belongs to Marvin, but the defensive packages we've been seeing so far have left Reggie a bit more open, and with Reggie, Marvin, Clark, Utecht, and now Gonzo all as more-than-capable receivers the ball gets spread around a lot.

Mate, I just sent you rep! That was one of the best posts I've ever read when it comes to opposing fans (ours included when we go elsewhere). You have my respect and I'm real glad you're here.

Why do you say that the Colts team that we faced last year was only half of the one that we're about to face? Now I do realize that the Colts had the division wrapped up and may have scaled back the guns a little bit but if I remember correctly, your defense was out there pretty much the whole game. As well as Manning.

I don't agree that we're going to have to beat you in the air though. I sincerely believe that if we can control the time of possession and move the chains by pounding the line, we have a very good chance. A quick score will not work for us because Peyton's just going to answer right back. If our offense parlays a 3 and out over and over, we can just call the game.

Keep in mind, I've got the Colts winning this one big but I'm certainly going to hope that we have a solid chance and we DO but mistakes cannot be made. Plays have to be executed everytime otherwise, Mannings' just gonna exploit our secondary. Yeah, we've got a great defensive line but Manning WILL get rid of the ball so it's basically a moot point. It's all up to whether or not if we can cause turnovers.

Good luck! Here's to hoping that no one gets hurt! Play hard but play safe! What board do you post at and by what SN?

At first I thought the media was overrating this Bob Sanders cat, but he does lay the wood. It seems he might be a liability in coverage though. Any thoughts?

Thanks man!

When I say you only faced 1/2 the Colts last year... I'm being charitable. Our defense was severely banged up when we faced you guys last time, as well as a number of other injuries that had to affect the outcome.

Dallas Clark was out with a knee
Addai played on a sprained ankle
Marlin Jackson and Antione Bethea (2nd-string Safeties last year) were both coming in off of injuries
and most importantly - NO BOB.

Our defense is very different this year. It's a continuation of the success they had last year _during the playoffs_ despite the number of new starters. The teams that played us in the playoffs last year should remember what it was like trying to run on us - the rest of the league has yet to learn.

The "control the ball, pound up the middle on the ground against the soft Colts D" mentality landed a lot of opposing teams in early point deficits so far, so I have absolutely no problem with it if that were to continue.

IndyDrummer

To the best of my knowledge, Freddie Keiaho should be healthy by the time kick off rolls around. The Colts defense is much better with Bob Sanders in the line-up (see last years playoffs, compared to the regular season) but the key with him is staying healthy. Im impressed with the year Super Mario is having so far. Hes definately becoming a force in the league. Hopefuly, a good game with no injuries.

Sanders is good is very decent in coverage but I wouldnt say he is great yet, playing the cover 2 he plays alot of zone which he does do rather well. His hands are not the best and this does cost him a few Ints now and then but he plays very hard smash mouth D and he helps our :d: a hell of alot especially against the run, or speeding up and hammering a receiver after a short pass underneath.

I think Bob Sanders and Troy Polamalu are the gold standard at the safety position. It's easy to see how different your defense looks without him.

Man, I am enjoying being here and reading. I'm really am excited for the Texans as an organization (just not so much this week), as I remember back when the Colts finally turned the corner and became a strong organization in this league. We still have some life left in the O, and Tony Dungy has finally drafted all of "his" type players to fit his D scheme. I posted the draft lineup in another ( Colts vs. DB ) thread. We're young, fast, and talented on D, and talented, skilled, and experienced on O. Your team is formidable this year, but I think we still have the horses to give you a good fight. :)

Here's to a good and injury free game. :)

Hey Texan fans...just thought I would come over and say "good luck on Sunday..here's to a good game with no injuries" It sucks Andre Johnson is out for you guys (he is also on my fantasy team, so I am bummin'). I think it is going to be a good game and can't wait to see it!

Is Matt Schaub really that good? Man, he lit up Carolina Sunday!

Anyway...again..good luck...but here's to a Colts win!!!!!

Believe me when I say your team is getting their due respect in Indy this week. No one is taking the Texans lightly, and you should be proud.
It's going to be a tough game for you - I don't expect the Colts to lose, but I don't expect a blowout either. Know that the Colts you faced last year and beat was only 1/2 the team you face on Sunday. You'll have to beat us in the air and produce big in all aspects of your D game if you hope to win.
Either way - here's to a great division game with no injuries on either side.

A nice post. But, check our roster out that game when the Texans beat the Colts. We were not exactly at full strength either. No one is at that time of year. I believe the Texans came close to leading the league in players on the IR, so pleading 1/2 strength holds no water for us. We were starting street free agents and the such.
On another note, after watching Carr create his own sacks last year, and studying good QB play like Manning, I hope y'all are REALLY enjoying the Manning years. Your next QB could be like Carr or Rob Johnson, or Harrington. You guys are living large. Enjoy the moments!

Fair enough.

And yeah - the Colts without Manning is scary regardless of how much other talent is on the roster.

first of all, good luck to you and your team this sunday. Im hoping mainly for a well contested, injury free game. We are down andre johnson, you are down Dallas Clark, and frankly neither of us needs to lose another player. To be honest, this is the first time a texans-colts game has ever been played that I wasn't absolutely dreading the outcome. We are playing for sole posession of first place in the afc south. we have a good, strong, smart football team built on a crippling defense. Had we not chosen to basically munch the entire 4th quarters off the clocks in our past 2 games, we would have easily scored 20 more points. We can play, we can finish, and we are looking forward to playing a team that is undisputably among the nfl's elite as a true gauge of where we are. I don't expect us to lose. This is new for me. Im really looking forward to this sunday, and I hate that I can't be there in person. Good luck colts fans, look forward to rehashing the game on here sunday/monday.

What I think is that Kubiak and Smith are building this team to compete with the Colts.

The main thing we all know that teams want to keep Peyton on the sideline as much as possible and to get pressure on him when he's on the field.

The WCO that we implement tries to control the ball and thus the clock. Green & Dayne combine for a good running duo as well as blockers. Leach is a good blocker at FB, and has developed into a nice safety valve catching the ball out of the back field. The TEs as a group, is solid in different aspects, from blocking to receiving.
Even without AJ, we still have 3 deep threats in J.J., Mathis, and A.D. while Walters is solid as a possession receiver.

What I read was that in the first game (Chiefs), Kubiak rotated all 9 competent defensive linemen just in the first 2 series alone. This is how we bring pressure. And with Manning, IMO, it's best to bring it up the middle where the route is the shortest.

As I rewatch the Colts games vs. Saints & Titans, Peyton gets rattled more when the guy in front of him is pushed back a bit much, or when there are hands up in the air. The outside pressure doesn't affect him half as much. DEs who work on Ugoh can beat him, but it's more effective when they get inside of the LT. I would hope that we run some stunts inside as well, and bring up a LB here and there.

Everybody is so pumped up around here, I can't help but feel the vibes.

Here's to a good game, and many more to come! :pirate:

Ok, cool. I think we win on Sunday. I also suffer from homerism.
Imagine a win without AJ.:d:

Kinda scary man.

Because I thought the Colts would run over the Titans and the Jags would not show up(hard to do that against the Falcons. Teams can not show up and still win.)

All of a sudden...the Titans are looking good, the Jags are looking alright, and the Colts...are still the Colts.

This is a tough division...but this ain't your Casserly's Texans either :texflag:

The Titians added sand to thier field to slow the Colts down, and it worked, Fisher is always pulling crap, that why I hate the Titans also...

I agree. From what I saw, it was not the best outing that Peyton has ever had. considering you guys lost to them on the road last year, I am sure it was a plus to secure the W. It would be hard for Mr. Jesus Young to beat you in Indy, despite his god-like powers.

I am curious, though. What is the best Indy message board? I will definitely need to invest some time into that board over the course of this season.

The IndyStar message board is my favorite
