Another factor some of us mentioned in the last Colt game was if your on their side of the field with 4th and 1-3 you might as well go for it and try and make it. It was interesting to see NE new it was necessary to keep Payton off of the field and likewise Indy did the same. That game was a real chess match. NE simply didn't have the defense to overcome Indy. I thought it was interesting that NE tried what were two suicidal plays and wound up giving up 6 points while they got a TD. They gained a point. When Payton has pressure on him he will force the ball and does make mistakes. If you can rattle his cage early you have a chance.

As Madden pointed out you have to set the edge against James. If you do that you can stop the run. Payton does have the ability to pick you to death, so you have to get a strip somewhere along the line and you must pressure him. When he is on though he is poetry in motion on his deliveries. Its amazing how well he judges his throws.

As most of you would say we have to place aggressive and not to loose. That is our only shot in this game. We must get a lead of more than 1 TD and keep the pressure on the Colts. You also need to change your defense a number of times in the last 8 seconds of the count. He has a tendancy to go down to the last second and had some game delays. The change has to be dramatice enough that a called play for that defense will not work with the new one. That's saying a lot, but you have to out think him. That is an exceedingly difficult task.

I was suprised to see the Patriots effectively protect that edge, but the key is they had very disciplined players keeping their contain in the middle. If you don't do that, Edge cuts it up the middle and gets his 5 yards there.

Discipline is the best way to stop the colts, plain and simple.

Some very nice obserations from IBAR.

There is always the "any given sunday" to work with for any team. BUT this year and this team it would take a TOTAL MELTDOWN on all levels for this game to be any closer than a few weeks back.

So, I would look for the COLTS to go back to playing ball controll and RUN,RUN,RUNNING.

Thats my .02

Oh yea, Our D is getting meaner every game, Carr could be in BIG TROUBLE:brickwall
