    Anyone following the Colts game?

    Quite an upset if Jacksonville can hold on over the Colts, 37-10, 0:22 left in the 3rd quarter.

    If this game is any indication, Rudi is in for a great day vs. Indy.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Actually, Jacksonville was VERY confident that they would win the game going in. They felt going that Indy had no way to stop their running game.

    Now that Jax has dumped the totally immobile, and slow-release Leftwich, they will be a very good team.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Not so sure about that, the Colts are flat out terrible at nearly every phase of the game now. They cant stop the run, the offense has not been clicking and has struggled the last few games, and the special teams has been bad. I think the Bengals come here (from Indy, Cots fan) and wins IMO.

    But it still would have been good if the Colts had beaten the Jags and put them farther back in the wild card race.

    you guys can also thank the Titans for showing the NFL how to beat the Colts.

    The Bengals pass D is pretty bad though. It may be all Manning needs to get back on track.

    That's exactly what I've been saying this afternoon. The Bengals will be going into Indy next week against a very good team that has lost two straight. For the Bengals to win, it will mean that the Colts will have to lose three straight after starting 10-1. I don't see that happening, because of the law of averages, if nothing else. I hope I'm wrong.

    As for today's loss at Jax, I don't see it as that much of upset. That's not an easy place to win, down there.

    run the ball down their throats and don't let Manning on the field. That's how you beat the Colts.

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    I guarantee you the Colts will be ready and completely fired up for the Bengals next week. To be the Colts you have to have a good pass rush. THat's the only thing that can slow Manning down. The Bengals don't have that. The Bengals will put up points, but I have little faith in their ability to stop the Colts offense. I think we'll see a similar game to what we saw last year. I'd have felt much better about their chances had the Colts gone out and handed it to Jax today.

    In other news, the Buccaneers took another step forward in the quest to reach that mythical #1 draft pick and Brady Quinn.

    You obviously haven't watched the Colts much. Run it down their throats.

    Re: Anyone following the Colts game?

    In addition to having to hand the Colts their third straight defeat, I might also add that the Bengals will be going to Denver to face a Broncos team that will have lost three straight home games. Is it possible for the Denver Broncos to lose four straight games on their home field? How long has it been since that happened?

    EDIT: I'll answer my own question. The Broncos lost four straight home games in 1990. That team finished the season 5-11. They lost three straight at home in 1994 and again in 2002.
