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.

At this point with the division won we might be saving some stuff for the playoffs.

Did we really get owned by Tampa's running game? We allowed less than 60 yards to one of the best backs in the league this season and less than 75 total. To me it looks like our D owned Tampa's rushing attack.

IMO because our short yardage plays suck. If we can ever get this corrected then yes 2nd and one is a freebie down

Not sure that will happen this year. Disconcerning that TB lived in our backfield all game

Who plays right guard for us either him or Koppen was getting eaten for lunch all game

Take a look at all of Martin's longer runs, and I guarantee you Brooking is getting pwned in all of them.

We all used to complain that Joe Mays was only getting two tackles per game. Well, Brooking has gotten 2, 1, and 1 his last three games. He isn't very fluid, gets blocked easily, and appears to be wearing down. DJ and Trevathan get just as many tackles and play less than half the time Brooking does.

Don't get me wrong, I like Brooking. At least he organizes the Defense into proper alignments and run fits, and doesn't miss tackles (unlike Joe Mays). However, he needs to be limited to a backup role, with 15-20 snaps per game.

Time to start DJ.
