Default Injuries along makeshift OL + Turnovers = Failure on the road

We had a RG starting at RT for the 1st time. Clark struggled from the start of the game at LT. Kuper did not play well, looked hurt and confused (much like Kahn when Kuper announced his engagement...to a GIRL!), Thomas wiffed on blocks.

We need Franklin back ASAP to limit the pressure.

The Colts were able to send big time blitz pressure because they were were playing such tight (sometimes too tight) man coverages.

The reason Manning looked bad after the safety was that he was under a ton of pressure every down and didn't have time to set his feet or move up in the pocket. When the OL finally allowed him to step up past the pressure he was firing the ball in there later in the 3rd and the 4th quarter.

If Walton is able to go I would consider starting him at C, moving ManRam to G and keep Vasquez at RT. I would prefer that over having Justice out there right now. The best case would be that Franklin would be able to return for the Redskins game but it seems doubtful at this point unless he practices some time this week.

Not sure why when they were in Pass pro and kept a TE in to block they didn't sub in Green. Green would have given them a better blocking TE. They can sub out KM when he taps out after 2 runs, not sure why they cannot do the same with their TE's, especially down that deep in their own end.

Maybe this will be a wake up call to those on the O who are marginal at things who need to step it up.

Just one too many turnovers to pull this one out.

A few spots is where we lost this game.

Hillman runs to the outside and keeps the ball on the inside instead of outside..Result is fumble. Should have been fumble out of bounds and Broncos ball. End result? Colts easy TD.

Vick hits Luck in the back when it would be 3rd and 10 at the 4 yard line. Result is a 1st down and more time wasted on the clock. Should have been a possible punt from the Colts endzone and we get great field position. End Result? No time to get the score.

There are a few more but those two were huge. Hillman fumble when passing (or bigger back) would be the best option to save time aka get the TD now.

Yeah I assume he is talking about the kick return, but natural tendency is to say Hillman fumbled.

haha. Good point, although Trindon is a close 2nd.

Holliday put the ball on the ground twice. As electric as he is I sometimes wonder if it's worth it.

When the game is on the line Romo is going to throw and interception

and Hillman is going to fumble . you can take that to the bank.

he's been solid this year. 1 game with a lost fumble that miraculously stayed in bounds and a bobbled fair catch which he recovered.

damn, for so many here it is just insane hysterics and going overboard on the drama, on a game we lost to a really good team that even though they dominated us, still had a chance for victory and lost by only 6.

Two turnovers in the 4th quarter, plus some 4th quarter penalties. Denver was playing pretty well in the 2nd half, scored two 4th quarter TD's, had Indy reeling, then those turnovers, ouch.

Just shot themselves in the foot repeatedly.

Also, anyone else get extremely frustrated with the pace / choppiness of the game?

Injuries, replays, reviews, TV timeouts... constant commercials. Just ridiculous.

I didn't like that they failed on 3rd and 1 with KM repeatedly. KM is a solid back but he is not a short yardage guy especially behind a makeshift OL.

I love Hillman's speed to the outside, he had a noticeable pop when he came in but he cannot be trusted with the ball anymore. Time to sit Hillman and see what CJ can do. Also Pray that Ball improves some in practice.
