    Re: What We Can Ascertain After Week One

    good post

    few thoughts.....

    * Sanchez had one good game (out of one) so he is doing well thus far.... but its way to early to say that it was a major heist trading up to get him... he looks like he will be good but just one game

    * I heard Nicks just sprained his knee... not sure the severity

    * Rivers to Jackson is nice but cant touch Tom to Randy..... In there only full season together they broke records... hall of fame connection... Rivers and Jackson are in the top 10 of QB/WR combos but I wouldnt but them any higher than 5th on that list

    * I was one that thought the Texans would win against the Jets and compete for the division this year but .... they looked really really bad

    fun week 1

    Where Indy is concerned.  Manning threw an int on a fade from the 4.  This is the 3rd time he's thrown an int on his first possession of the season.  Not much to get too riled about - BUT

    Manning did throw 2 other very bad passes that should have been intercepted but were not.  So while Manning completed 73% of his passes, 3 were awful and the colts were lucky with 2 of them. 

    Additionally, on another scoring drive, Addai fumbled at the 20 yd line. 

    At a minimum, Indy could have expected 6 more points or 14 more at the top end. 

    The good news was the D.  DB's defended passes very very well.  Although this could be attributed to an excellent pass rush against a line that started 2 rookie tackles.  Held MJD to just under 100 yds which for the colts is a plus. 

    Indy's got work to do, particularly in their run game.  We shall see.

    The Eagles problem is that McNabb can't stay healthy.  The guy is always injured.  I thought they were fools to get rid of Feeley so soon.  Do great players who get injured a lot help or hurt their teams?  Yes they contribute when they play, but when they play is kind of a gamble that can't be predicted or counted on.  

    Bob Sanders with the Colts is another example.  Without him, their D stinks.  With him, they are decent.  

    You can't make plays from the sideline, no matter how good you are.

    the packers offense was sluggish,but there defense is much improved.sanchez will have a better test in week 2.philly is explosive as long as mcnabb is healthy.the vikes are good with peterson,but as long as favre just manages the games,they could contend.the nfc west,im not sure yet,as the nfc south.the colts looked sluggish,but they are missing some guys,and the steelers havent played anyone yet.

    Hmmm - Indy's D definitely needs Sanders for to help their run, but they were missing a starting DT yesterday who will be back next week.  Should help.  On the other hand the pass D was very good.  The pass rush was strong at the edge and up the middle and the Jags continually tested our starting rookie DB who passed with flying colors defending multiple throws. 

    Good outing for Indy's D.

    BMartins - I don't know how you eat, but I don't recommend s*cking.  Didn't your mother teach you to chew?

    Moss - Lots of talk about this today, and I believe the answer is - NOT A CHANCE. 

    Now - I am a fan which means I really know nothing, but I think the colts are good with what they have.  Likely they will bring someone off the practice squad. 

    Marvin wouldn't play for league minimum. 

    We'll see.  I could be wrong.
