    For me, this is what gives me hope. The 2006 Colts were historically bad on defense, allowing over 150 rushing yards per game.

    But when the playoffs came around Manning played great and the defense stepped up. I can see the same thing happening for the Patriots.

    Manning played great? Um if I recall correctly, he played one good half the entire playoffs (againts Pats AFCCG) he was awful against Chiefs, and Ravens 1 TD and 5 INT's.

    The D was amazing it was a crazy transformation.

    Getting Bob Sanders back for the playoffs helped the COlts a lot that year ....

    Manning was terrible in the playoffs, but the defense was great.

    What helped was that their first 2 opponents saw a weak run d and ran every down. The Herman Edwards Chiefs ran almost every 1st and 2nd down and the Colts knew it was coming. Even they could stop the run if they knew it was every play. I think the other team was the Ravens who couldn't throw it if they tried so they did the same dumb thing.

    That was always the thing about the Colt D. If you made them play honest, you would gash them on the ground because they just ignored the run and rushed the passer, but if you announced you were running right at them they could play OK.

    I know the defense wasn't very good last year, but they weren't disappointing in the play-offs. They probably played better than or as well as they have all season in the playoffs. The offense laid an egg.

    Manning sucked...the MVP award almost felt like a sympathy vote.

    The running game and the defense stole the show. Quite ironic.

    It would be nice to get to the playoffs and face three incompetent offensive unites.
