I have been thinking about how we can beat the Colts (Who hasn't, right?), and as I have mentioned in other threads, I hate the idea of keeping Peyton off the field to win. It's a bad strategy that can only backfire. I have decided that week 1 is going to tell us about the rest of the season, and here's why. Even up to last year, we have been a young, up-and-coming team with a lack-of-experience. Frankly, even I have played into this. This year we have a tought schedule, and can't shoot ourselves in the foot. Which brings me to the only way we are going to beat the Colts: Leadership The reason we have thrown away every game we've played to the Colts since the "Rosencopter" game was because we allowed the Colts to win. The Colts know that even if they're down by 21 against us, they've got a chance if they play hard. All they have to do is wait for Peyton to fire them up. It's your turn, Matt. If we're down in the 4th, you have to throw a game winning TD instead of those ridiculous "WTF" pick 6's with the game on the line. Somebody has to fire these guys up. Somebody has to make them believe. If they can't show leadership and heart now, in this game, I think our season is done. I don't care how young our players are or what pieces we're missing. Worse teams have done more. It's our time. Who will step up? Matt? Andre? Mario? Bernard? DeMeco? Kubiak? I don't care...just get it done.
