Thought I would give you all a shout out and wish you well against the Titans. I thought I drop a line on the The Colts Hype... I AM SICK OF ALL THE SPIN ATTEMPTING TO TURN MY TAKE INTO BEING SIMPLY BASED ON NOTHING MORE THAN A BIASED OPINION OVER ON THE COLTS MESSAGE BOARD. IT WAS ALL ABOUT STATS TILL I SHOWED UP, NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN STATS DON'T MATTER OVER THERE? GOOD GRIEF. Simply ignoring the stats doesn't make the facts go away. Stats are facts they are not bias. Granted the Colts have done well against last 8 opponents scoring defensive units posessed a beleagured 28th ranking average, but they have struggled against the better units they have played against. This is not bias this is the facts. With the next big three games, Colts will be facing the best opponents they have seen so far this season. The 8th best defensive scoring average is a far cry from 28th. They have yet to face a team as well balanced as they will against SD and the Seahawks. When you do your homework and see what all the hype is about, it is easy to see the impressive odds that are stacked against the Colts, and how they could very well indeed lose all three of their next big games. Last time Colts faced teams posessing scoring defensive units who averaged inside the top ten, and even though there scoring offensive unit average ranked in @ dismal 20th ranking, Manning was still held to career low #'s. # 5 Jags Scoring Defense P. Manning 13/28 122 0 TD 1 INT # 8 Browns Scoring Defense P. Manning 19/23 228 0 TD 1 INT HERE IN IS WHERE THE PROBLEM LIES... Colts are not only going to be facing teams who's scoring defensive units average ranks 8th, but a 6th ranked scoring offensive unit average of the Jags, Seahawks and Chargers. 2 of the teams are the top three scoring offensive units in the league~!! Looking @ the defense average the opponents that Seattle and San Diego have had to face, when you look at the 28th ranked scoring defensive unit average that the Colts had luxury of going up against, it is not hard to consider that the offenses of Seattle and San Deigo are probably better than the Colts. Colts are in big trouble. The better units they will be facing have a 6th ranked offensive scoring average, considering the 20th ranked scoring offensive unit average of their previous better teams, Colts will need to score twice if not three times as many points as they did against teams they played who possess better defensive units. 13 points is good enough to get passed teams with the 20th ranked average scoring offenses but not the 6th ranked average especially considering the 28 points Colts defense has given up to a top 10 offense. In order for the Colts to go undefeated they will have to either score 3 times as many points with their offense as they did against the better Scoring defensive units this season, or hold an even better scoring offensive unit averaged teams to at least to less than half the points they have allowed this year, or some combination of the two. This is a fact not an opinion.
