So basically 14 points right there where guys forgot about the mental part of their job. They weren't beat, they beat themselves. It was nothing clever or that took amazing effort on the Colts part. Just took bonehead moments.
Not to mention the two bad throws by Schaub that went to the other team. One was "definitely" a touchdown..... that's another 7 points.

Absolutely & I don't mean to take anything away from the Colts, or Luck. That kid, for the first time, impressed the Fk out of me. Think about it, all the things we tried to do that didn't work, worked for them. The bubble screen to Andre that went for a -3 yards, Luck & Hilton busted a 15 yard play on the same thing. We tried to catch them with a quick snap to pick up a first down.... didn't set long enough, still didn't get the first down. Luck picked up the first down on one play & punked us getting off the field on another. His inflections on his snap count. 3 or more offsides.

But to win at this level, you've got to capitalize on the mistakes of the other team..... they did that. You also have to minimize the mistakes of your own team. They did that as well. They won the game. If we'd have cleaned up our own mistakes, we'd have made it more difficult for them but as it stands, they won it.
