    I think this is what is going to be the difference between keeping the game close. You saw that Carr didn't have too much time to pick his reciever during the Broncos game because of pressure (something Jacksonville failed to do). After watching the Monday night game against the Vikings...Freeney has excellent outside burst and spin moves that might give Wand or Wade (Freeney moved to both sides) troubles during the game.

    It is not much as Freeney vs. Wade because the Colts will surely put him against the LT who started playing this season. Wand has had a pretty good season this year, but Freeney will give him a lot of trouble for the things you mentioned so look for a lot of bootlegs and rollouts...

    hopefully are run game can come through. Davis has had pretty good games against this team before, and Indy certainly didn't look like a team that stops the run much. I think our secondary needs to get it in gear after the debacle last week.

    Yeah freeney has a little burst,,,,especially when he gets an EARLY start (offsides) !! But i think our boys can handle him,,,cause if not it will be another long day for Carr

    I guess we could always throw Bruener over to help out Wand if it really became a problem.

    i think they are in the middle of the pack with rushing defense. Their run defense is much better than their pass defense. Which can be tricky cause you wanna run against them anyway and not get into a shootout.

    With the personel issues on Defense the Coltshave, i think Dungy's plan is to stop the run and let other teams try to shoot it out. Cant fall for that...
