Manning definitely needs to rethink motioning the TE only for run plays. Running play-action 50% of the time after motioning in the TE would probably solve the problem, and keep the Defense guessing...but it may limit the TE's route tree in a play-action pass play.
It's a tough one to solve. I don't remember seeing him do that with Indy.
What kills me is that 2nd and short has been an automatic run down all season, when it is a great play action down.
