We did not play the same offense in the 2nd half. They played conservative and were content to run clock and play for the FG. Keenum took some shots (to his credit), but on the whole, you cannot say we played with the same aggressiveness.
I mean, give the colts credit, they adjusted...they took away the playaction bootleg and they stiffened a little on the run game...they heated case up and dared him to throw it deep alot. The reality of it is, as much as people like the deep shots, those are low percentage throws...the equivalent of taking 3 pt shots instead of taking the easy 2 in basketball. Most d-coordinators will take there chances with those....if they have confidence in their secondary. Manusky clearly wasn't shaken by keenum's propensity to throw it deep.
