    It's funny to look at the points per game scored by offenses vs. the points per game given up by the defenses.

    Points per game given up by the Texans................27.7
    Points per game scored by the Colts......................26.7

    Points per game scored by the Texans...................17.4
    Points per game given up by the Colts...................18.7


    Notice the "coincidental" inverse relationship?

    It's funny that we suck... but not really that far behind them.

    If I'm not mistaken 10 ppg that we gave up was due to turnovers whether directly or indirectly(and that 27.7 included pick 6's). So if we don't turn the ball over that number would likely be much smaller than 28 ppg (and our offensive number might be a bit higher as well).

    Indy put up 27 on the 49ers, 34 on Seattle, & 39 on Denver. Solid production against three strong defenses. Let's hope the Wayne injury slows them down a bit.

    Time to see how TY handles being the #1 guy.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea to start one of their RB's either.

    I'd feel much better with Cushing in the lineup...if they establish the run we are in deep, deep trouble.

    Teams have been gashing us with the run with Cushing in the lineup. It says something when we are 27th against the run. That's why we are #1 against the pass we know this pass defense isn't good and the run defense has to be pretty bad for teams not to throw it on us like they have in the past.

    Denver's D has not been strong - 27th on yds, 30th passing, 6th rushing (everybody is passing to catch up) and 26th on points.

    If Richardson goes off against us that would be extremely disappointing.

    So starting ILBs will be Mays and Sharpton, with Mike Mohammad as depth? Why didn't we pickup another ILB...?

    They did. They brought in former Ravens/49er Tavares Gooden & former Patriot Jeff Tarpinian as depth.

    Colts have not shown a strong rush offense, and we have shown a pitiful run defense. With Luck, we can't afford to stack the D against the run, especially with Manning with a broken leg on IR and Ed Reed on his last leg on the field.

    Mathis moves around a lot, I think. How does the Mathis-Newton matchup look?
