    After seeing how Indy lossed that Super Bowl with a courageous move like the onside kick known as Ambush, what does everyone think about us opening the second half like that if we don't get the ball in the second half.

    Here's what I think:

    1. You are 1-15 against this team. Time to pull out all the stops.
    2. This could deflate the pride of Indy since it happened a second time.
    3. If you lose because of this, at least you lossed trying to win rather than lose trying not to lose.
    4. Momentum shifter.
    5. It's the first game of the season, you should be able to make up for it.

    How about we just blow them and way and not worry about an onside kick?

    That play worked only because the Colts were caught completely off-gaurd. Even though it was 7 months ago, it happened in thier last game. I just don't think they would be fooled twice in consecutive games with the same play. Not saying it wouldn't work just that all element of suprise would be taken out of the equation. IMO.

    With a comment like that man, you better duck because the responses will be flying at you fast.

    I'm sure our team has had enough of blowing the Colts. I mean leads, blowing leads against the Colts.

    Yup. I like the idea of our Defensive Line pressuring the hell out of Peyton. I also like our Offensive Line winning their battles letting Foster have a record rushing day and Schaubo to throw the occasional big time play to AJ and Jacoby. 3 TDs 0 Ints for Schaub. 150+ yards rushing and 2 TDs for Foster. 2 Sacks for Mario, 1 for Barwin and 1 for Amobi. 1 Interception returned for a TD for Kareem. 1 FG for Rackers

    45 - 17 Texans in an epic blowout.

    EDIT - Quoted post fixed :)

    My concern is the Texans will come out so super high in first quarter they will make stupid mistakes and start thinking "here we go again".

    I say we should start teaching Arian and Steve to throw the ball.

    1. We are 1-15.
    2. Nobody will expect us to do a HB pass.
    3. If you lose, you can't blame Schaub, you took the ball out of his hands.
    4. If we're ahead it will definitely be a big momentum shifter.
    5. Chris Brown is not on the team.

    Well sadly that would be a step up from "taking it in the rear", which is what we usually do against the Colts. :)
