If the Texans want a real chance at being competitive in the AFC South this season, they have to find a way to steal a game from the Colts this year. Looking at the off-season acquisitions, I don't think the Colts have gotten significantly stronger in any area, which is by no means a fault, they were already strong enough. They're going into battle with a similar cast on offense, but have upgraded their secondary with the drafting of Marlin Jackson. I think the biggest weakness on defense they have has to be in their linebackers, who if I remember correctly are quick, but are pretty much no names on a national level. When we first got PBuch I thought maybe we could finally match up with their receivers, but with the loss of Glenn they still have a big advantage on us when Manning has time. Peek tore it up against the Colts last season, and now that he'll be a full time starter maybe we can expect to see some more pressure generated on Manning. The story on Manning is that he doesn't respond well to pressure up the middle, flushing him out of the pocket. I think Greenwood and Wong can give us a better pass rush up the middle this year, which gives us a better chance to disrupt their offense. On offense I think we need to run the ball alot on the Colts. They seem light to me with Monte Reagor, Freeney, and smaller, quicker linebackers. Their pass rush was too quick for us last season, but I think if we just tried to pound it on them it would open up the passing game for us. On paper AJ should have a sizeable advantage on any of their DB's, if Carr can have time to throw AJ could put up big numbers. Anywho, the Colts absolutely destroyed us last year. If any of you remember, we actually did very well against the Colts in the last game of the '03-'04 season, leading into halftime, and I think we have our best chance this year to finally beat them. Hopefully we can continue our trend of beating the Titans and Jags, get some success against Indi, and make a serious run at the division title. Thoughts?
