They're both right. When we got spread out we got destroyed. Tebow helped keep the defense fresh at times, but there were also times the defense kept giving the ball back to the offense only to see it do nothing - in fact that happened under Orton and Tebow.

3 words to Mr. Bayless:

Jack Del Rio

still has to have players..
do we have 3-4 good CB's to shut down the spread passing game?
do we have a DL that can pressure the QB and force him to make mistakes.
do we have players that can stop the run..

until we have those pieces the good to great offense are going to have the way with us..

Manning will up the offense but will it be good enough to score 40+ points in those games..

until it is on both sides of those coins we are going to win some games and get our asses kicked in the playoffs.

just like Manning did to us year after year..

how many trap games have we lost over the past decade.. how many blows have we had year after year..

Those things happen when you're not balanced and have depth in case Dawkins or Champ is down for the game..

Right now IMO we are a couple of years away to be complete.. IF everything breaks just right..


having a coach is not going to do it all by himslef..

schemes are great but they can be beat..

I think so...Champ, Porter, Goodman, Harris
Absolutely...Doom, Miller are good starts
Nope...Ayers is a good run anchor on the end but that's about it. Some huge IFs inside at all 3 levels

Seems like the defense is close and the draft is still to come.

we just picked up another solid CB...Champ, Goodman, Porter, Harris, Squid isn't a bottom tier set of CBs by any means....not to mention that on 3rd and passing situations last year we were at 6th in percentage stopped.

We just picked up Adams to either supplant Dawkins or rotate with him..plus to two draft picks we spent last year to bolster the safety position

we have one of the best speed rushing LBs in the game to complement Dumervil on the outside, so I'm not sure why you are concerned about our ability to get to the QB...we were 9th in the league last year and that was with Von being pretty dinged up after his fast start

granted, we were in the middle of the pack in stopping the run, but we were in a lot of close games where both teams were trying to grind out yards...our defensive players should be fresher on most series this year without all of our 3 and outs

adding Del Rio was one piece of the equation but last years defense was not the same defense as in years past (aka getting scorched in every way)

3-4 good CB's - check. Good coverage safeties - check.

DL that can pressure QB - depends, with Ayers inside, Doom and Von Miller on the edge yes. However Ayers doesn't rush well from the outside - if we anticipate a lot of pass D we need a decent run stuffing DE to spell Ayers on the outside in base sets so he can focus on rushing from the UT spot. I say this because we missed out on the very few rushing UT's available(none of whom were really any good). A promising rookie or trade/cap casualty from another team could change the situation.

Players that can stop the run - not a chance. Mays will stop some if he guesses right - and will completely whiff on others. None of our safeties can tackle. We have no real run stuffing DT's or an NT who can handle 2 gaps. If Vickerson and Warren are both healthy(a big if) that still only gives us mediocre to decent run stuffers.

goody will not be around after the draft.. IIRC he is one of the most expensive players on the team..

way to much money for a dime back and then he will get beat like a rented mule..

You have to be able to pressure up the gut to be effective (see giants) right now nada on this team so lets hope the spend a couple of picks on DT's

as for stopping the run.. simple they run away from Ayers..or up the gut..

still a problem as we speak.

your correct still lots of IFs on this team that is why I see getting our asses kicked in the playoffs because that is where the Great teams wind up.. Not like our playoff team last year..

If anyone of those players go down who is behind them to step up and play..

NADA

as I said a couple of years with great drafts might be the answer..

As I just said I'd be surprised if whiff Goody is on the team this year.. Almost all of the big plays and Tds were to his side and he was in the trailing position when they crossed the goal line..

Our best run stopper is now gone.. I do not see anyone stepping up to take his place.. having a great outside rush is well great but when the QB can step up in the pocket because we have zero penetration from the middle means we have to blitz there and wind up with an open man to throw to..

Sorry but IF any of those good guys go down we have zip in-depth..

In a best case scenario we get a couple fo studs in the draft and have zero injuries we still face the second toughest schedule in the NFL..Only the giants have it worse..

Teams fluctuate all the time. The schedule could turn out easier. I remember everyone scared of the middle of the schedule last year. A 6 game win streak happened then. I don't see Houston being as good, if saints is a home game pencil that in as a win, saints are terrible on the road. Atlanta cincy and Carolina can be beat. They somewhat take care of the west teams and they are in good shape. I only see the steelers ravens and patriots as being expected losses.

our defense was put under a lot of pressure last year and was on the field a lot....

our offense was tops in the league in the category of turnovers per drive...so they were put on the field a lot

according to Football Outsiders we were the 12th best defensive line when it came to power defensive line...so when it was 3rd or 4th down in running situations we were able to stop them when they did run...

we were also 9th in runs "stuffed"...either for no gain or a loss

we weren't that bad against the run last year

Do you think anyone considered the Tebow lead Broncos a threat?

most of those wins, as much as I loved them, were trap games for those other teams..

Not saying that we lose lots of them but we are going to get killed in the playoffs like NE did to us last year unless we fix the defense BIG time..

a new coach with a scheme means zip without horses and depth.. IMO

we were also 9th in runs "stuffed"...either for no gain or a loss

we weren't that bad against the run last year

This team gave up 24 or more points in the first half of 4 of those 5 games where they gave up 40+. That is not being put under a lot of pressure. That is not being worn down. That is not being on the field too long.

Here is a list of scoring drives in the first half of games they gave up 40+ points:

6 - 79 - TD
7 - 53 - TD
10 - 80 - TD

6 - 80 - TD
7 - 57 - FG
8 - 68 - TD
7 - 49 - TD

5 - 80 - TD
12 - 80 - TD
6 - 16 - FG
6 - 40 - TD

7 - 59 - FG
1 - 80 - TD
5 - 58 - TD

So in the first half of those games, this defense gave up 60+ yard TD drives half the time.

Those are not the results of a good defense, or even a "better than you'd think" defense. That's not the offense's fault, either. If they were giving up those drives in the second half, I would say yes, this defense is on the field too long. But they're getting behind to open the game, as well, and BIG.

This idea that we'll somehow magically be playing with a lead all the time next year is hilarious.

Our defense seemed to do "okay", until we hit a fatigue threshold. With Mr. 3&Out that was usually at halftime. With any normal offense, Its at least in the 4th quarter. With Payton, there's a good chance our defense never hits that threshold the whole season.

Harris
Moore
Willis
Ball

These guys played roles last year, but nothing major (you can make an argument for Ball)....one of them is going to step up. If we get two (my hope would be Moore and Harris) that plugs up two more spots where we could use some help

somebody has to develop....right?

Hilarious!

The only reason Manning even has a ring is because of his defense, he probably should've given his ring to Sanders as a thank you gift.

Yeah...Bob Sanders who missed 49 of his first 96 games is why Manning won a title...he really elevated San Diego didn't he?

2006 Colts Offense rankings
Scored 427 points
Rank 2nd

Thank God for Bob (the glass man) Sanders.
Sanders played in only four games during the 2006 regular season

By the second half of the season, Indy was getting trampled on a weekly basis by everyone from Maurice Jones-Drew (not a surprise) to Travis Henry (reasonable) to Ron Dayne (incomprehensible). The Colts allowed 5.33 yards per carry during the 2006 regular season. This is not only the highest rushing average ever allowed by a Super Bowl champion (by more than half a yard per carry), it is the highest regular-season rushing average allowed by any NFL team since the 1961 expansion Minnesota Vikings gave up 5.41 yards per carry.

The Colts also allowed 360 points, the first team to ever make the Super Bowl after allowing more than 340 points. They also gave up a 64.3 percent completion rate to opposing quarterbacks, the first Super Bowl champ to allow more than 61 percent completions during the regular season. The Colts look no better when you look at the advanced stats we use at Football Outsiders. There's no mistaking it: Indianapolis had an awful, awful defense.

They don't get to the playoffs without Manning, no. But Manning played like hot garbage early in the playoffs that year, especially against Baltimore...39 passer rating and the only NFL playoff game in 30 years without a touchdown scored.

So the Colts don't win a ring without Manning. But Manning goes home early again if his defense doesn't step up big time in the playoffs.

First off, I'm just disputing this post;

__________________________________________________ ________
According to this guy, Manning sucks and would never have a ring if not for Indy's awesome defense. (He must be a Tebow fan)

The fact is, Indy had the worst run defense in the league that year.
Every team we played rushed for over 100 yards.
Week 1. Indy gave up 186 yards rushing.
Week 2. Indy gave up 108 yards rushing.
Week 3. Indy gave up 191 yards rushing.
Week 4. Indy gave up 135 yards rushing.
Week 5. Indy gave up 214 yards rushing.
Week 6. BYE WEEK
Week 7. Indy gave up 114 yards rushing.
Week 8. Indy gave up 227 yards rushing.
Week 9. Indy gave up 148 yards rushing.
Week 10. Indy gave up 111 yards rushing.
Week 11. Indy gave up 117 yards rushing.
Week 12. Indy gave up 149 yards rushing.
Week 13. Indy gave up 219 yards rushing.
Week 14. Indy gave up 375 yards rushing.
Week 15. Indy gave up 133 yards rushing.
Week 16. Indy gave up 191 yards rushing.
Week 17. Indy gave up 150 yards rushing.
The Colts allowed 5.33 yards per carry during the 2006 regular season. This is not only the highest rushing average ever allowed by a Super Bowl champion , it is the highest regular-season rushing average allowed by any NFL team since 1961. (WOW! WHAT A GREAT DEFENSE WE HAD)

After 16 games the defense finally showed up for 2 games in the play-offs.
Wildcard.Indy gave up 44 yards rushing.
Division. Indy gave up 83 yards rushing.
The AFC Championship game the defense gave up 34 points.
The Colts gained 455 offensive yards, 32 first downs, and managed to overcome a 21-3 deficit to the Patriots to earn their first trip to the Super Bowl since the 1970 season. Their 18-point comeback was the largest ever in an NFL conference championship game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUj_zbp-7F4&feature=related

In the first Super Bowl played in rainy conditions, the Colts overcame a 14–6 first-quarter deficit to outscore the Bears 23–3 in the last three quarters.
The Colts defense forced 5 turnovers.

So, ya. The defense stepped up when they had to but to say the Colts D is the reason they made it to the SB and to say Peyton should give his ring to Bob (the glass man) Sanders is just stupid.
Have you people ever even seen the Colts play a game (besides the playoffs in 2003 and 2004 when Manning sent the Broncos home in body-bags?)

Bob Sanders?? LMFAO!!!!!

"And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Manning and Hell followed with him."

2006 the defense most definitely saved the Colts.

When the offense took a crap in the first game against Kansas City, they only allowed 8 points. When they couldn't score against Baltimore, they didn't allow a touchdown. The only game where the offense really sealed the deal was the AFC Championship game, and then they had to score 17 points in the 4th quarter to win the game.

After 16 games the defense finally showed up for 2 games in the play-offs.
Wildcard.Indy gave up 44 yards rushing.
Division. Indy gave up 83 yards rushing.
The AFC Championship game the defense gave up 34 points.
The Colts gained 455 offensive yards, 32 first downs, and managed to overcome a 21-3 deficit to the Patriots to earn their first trip to the Super Bowl since the 1970 season. Their 18-point comeback was the largest ever in an NFL conference championship game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUj_z...eature=related

In the first Super Bowl played in rainy conditions, the Colts overcame a 14–6 first-quarter deficit to outscore the Bears 23–3 in the last three quarters.
The Colts defense forced 5 turnovers.

So, ya. The defense stepped up when they had to but to say the Colts D is the reason they made it to the SB and to say Peyton should give his ring to Bob (the glass man) Sanders is just stupid.
Have you people ever even seen the Colts play a game (besides the playoffs in 2003 and 2004 when Manning sent the Broncos home in body-bags?)

Sanders didn't play 12 games that year so ya....they made it to the bowl without his help. He returned just in time for the PO's.

He could have remained injured and it wouldn't have mattered.

Yeah, and notice when Tebow eeked out games like that, it's characterized as Denver's defense winning despite him.

And none of this is anything against Manning. Most QB's go through rough patches in the playoffs. Often times defenses have to carry them through (or fall) But the idea that Manning has ever carried a team to a title is way off. He's a big factor, but he needs help, just like every other player in the league.

Manning has been a force to be reckoned with until the playoffs I love him as our QB but much like Elway could not win the big one, until they had other players around him..

Still his QBR of 70 in the playoffs that year well sucks..

Saunders played lights out in the playoffs IIRC.. and that is coming from someone that has really disliked the colts for their dominance of my Broncos forever.. But I did not watch every game and every play ..

I know that the defense came on strong in the playoffs and may have also been strong down the stretch.. But I'm not sure of that..

As I said I'm glad he is now a Bronco and have to thank the colts for FUBARing yet another QB to us..

This is not my opinion, it is a FACT. Google it and see for yourself. I am agreeing that in the PO's the D stepped up and made a run for the Championship. All I said was Manning carried the team until they reached the PO's. I am disagreeing that Bob Sanders is the reason the Colts won the SB. Peytons offense wasn't ****ing the bed in any game except the Baltimore Ravens game and I wouldn't even call it that. Baltimore had the #1 defense in the league and they were hard to score against. In the AFCCG Manning was on fire in the second half, I wouldn't call that ****ing the bed. It was the largest comeback in Championship history. The Colts have always played a soft cover 2 defense since Dungy was here, I wouldn't worry about your D. The Patsies wont play the Broncos the same against Manning as they did Tebow.

http://www.slate.com/articles/sports/sports_nut/features/2007/how_to_watch_pro_football/why_youll_never_see_another_team_like_the_2006_col ts.html

Sanders played in only four games during the 2006 regular season, and the Colts gave up points by the bucketful. By the second half of the season, Indy was getting trampled on a weekly basis by everyone from Maurice Jones-Drew (not a surprise) to Travis Henry (reasonable) to Ron Dayne (incomprehensible). The Colts allowed 5.33 yards per carry during the 2006 regular season. This is not only the highest rushing average ever allowed by a Super Bowl champion (by more than half a yard per carry), it is the highest regular-season rushing average allowed by any NFL team since the 1961 expansion Minnesota Vikings gave up 5.41 yards per carry.

The Colts also allowed 360 points, the first team to ever make the Super Bowl after allowing more than 340 points. They also gave up a 64.3 percent completion rate to opposing quarterbacks, the first Super Bowl champ to allow more than 61 percent completions during the regular season. The Colts look no better when you look at the advanced stats we use at Football Outsiders. There's no mistaking it: Indianapolis had an awful, awful defense.

the team was built around score more than the opposing team period.. Never any emphasis on D at least that I could see.

probably because manning took 20%+ of the salary cap each year..
hard to hold on to players when you can't pay them..

the team was built around score more than the opposing team period.. Never any emphasis on D at least that I could see.

just build the O so strong you have to score 40 points to beat them..

That works until you run up against quality teams that are balanced in the playoffs.

had the D not stepped up that year Manning would still be looking at his brothers ring..

agree on all this however the Pats have done well with this same scenario....................still believe we need to build a stout defense to go with Manning...........

Pointing out that the 2006 Colts won in the playoffs in large part by playing good defense is not playing nice?

I've been pretty disappointed with your poor troll attempts.

For someone who claims they've been 'dealing' with Patriots trolls (who's QB has 3x as many rings as yours) for years, I was expecting much more.

I agree. If Manning didn't have a sh!tty defense all these years he would have won a lot more SB's.
I do think the Broncos already have a better D than the Colts did.
The only reason the Patriots stomped you so bad is because like the Colts, once they get the lead they pour it on strong. If Tebow could have kept the Broncos in the game the Patriots wouldn't have let Brady loose.
Once they get the lead their whole game plan changes. I bet that don't happen this year when they play.

So you didn't watch the Broncos, but you know their defense is better than the 2006 Colts, even though they surrendered more points and yards per game.

Sanchez is throwing footballs to Holmes right now. tebow and his lawyers are trying to win exclusive rights to the term "Tebowing" made up by a fan back east. One is practicing his throws, the other is worried about owning a word on the Internet.

Oh, I might have trashed his teammates but not to deflect criticism from him. I think there are plenty of holes on this team, but there was no question he needed to be a better passer. I think he will get there. He doesn't have to look like Brady with the threat of the scramble. His passing ability just needs to be respected by defenses to take advantage of the triple threat of scramble, pass, or run.

Completely developed I see Steve McNair.

He did raise the level of play of his teammates though, that can't be denied.

I'm no expert on Colts offseasons but what great players did they lose in FA?

one that I know of Manning.. But then he was not a FA they flat cut him to save 23+mil..

They also cut a bunch of players to free up cap space..

Probably going to be several years before that team has rebuilt..

Brady....................doh.................. Pats seem to do ok with that scenario..................

Tell me some more about AA signing a contract with those overpaid union employees.....................? The ones who took a huge paycut to keep the airline afloat while management took millions in bonuses...the same ones who haven't had a contract in almost a decade.................union hater

As far As I know all phases of AA are union.. I know the FA and pilots are pretty sure that mechanics and customer service folks are..

I know that AA is in bankruptcy court to void those contracts or at least that is what the courts are talking about..

If you're not union then you seem to be the only ones that are not.. from what I have heard..

I do know that they are also trying to void their pension plans..

I do not hate unions persee, just the corruption that they breed as well as what they seem to cost employees for little or NO gain.

I pretty much believe that most Airline employees are overpaid at least the one that have been arounf=d for more than ten years.. excepting perhaps Pilots those folks need to be the best paid folks that the airlines employ..

Sounds like your bitter, about the fat cats at the top of the wage scale, If your unhappy change airlines.. Plenty of jobs for qualified airline personnel..

AS for Brady it is just a matter of time before his contract hurts the team if it is not already.. Just as Mannings will in DEN..

When one player is making 20%+ of the cap space other real players can not be kept..

I guess you feel that wasting your time reading this schumcks crap is a good thing?

He seems to be bitching that one or two members have liked Tebow.. and seems to think that they are the majority here..

seems to me he hates Tebow for what ever reason whether it be tuned in to Jesus, or he went to a FL school..

MAybe he jilted his sister..

but what ever it is does not justify his moronic posts about him.

IMHO

I applaud Houghtam for putting the ass clown on Iggy.
