    Week 11 Colts at Pats pre-game discussion, preview, keys & analysis.

    Whether it's your own thoughts or a link to an interesting column, post them here. Obviously if you have something very specific or in depth go ahead and start a new thread. This one's for comments and links that are worth posting, but not worth starting a new thread on.

    Yeah, I know there are three other Pats-Colts threads going strong but they all seem to have headed off into specific tangents.

    Aside from my prediction of a beat down (that didn't bode well with you guys), I think that Hernandez gets back into this game. He was quiet last game and I just can't see him getting shutdown 2 weeks in a row. and also Tate I think will have a big game. The key to winning this game is to play smart and not allow Peyton to take advantage of turnovers. The Defense has looked great and with Chung back I think that they will suprise everyone again and have a great game vs the Colts Offense.

    Yeah but they barely used hernandez in the last game, they needed a blocking TE for the pass rush and Gronk is a much better blocker than hernandez is. Hernandez is more of a receiving TE thats used for receptions and yards after the catch.

    Meanwhile it sounds like Colt players are improving health-wise.

    i think its going to be a shootout. Pats offense has moved the ball on the colts but if iam not mistaken they have turned the ball over every time they have playd them in the last 5 yrs. They dont blitz much and are very fast so this is going to be interesting how brady handles find open WR's with no deep threat and freeney and mathis bearing down.
    On defense, the corners are in for a tough day with wayne,garcon and collie coming back.Hopefully guyton can neutralize tamme who is manning's security blanket which can make manning throw some in completions or inaccurate passes.
    i really hope they run the ball more than they do vs the colts usually. Colts have had a poor run D for ages but the pats have never run on them consistently for whatever reason.

    Friday's injury report for the Colts; looks like the policy of listing as many players as possible as questionable is still in effect.

    thats just bill polian mocking the pats report probably. i know a few yrs ago both teams messed with this so much that one of them even listed the backup qb on the report.
    Aside,peter king on weei said today that the colts are like the pats are secretive abt injury info. Wonder why they dont get that much hyped for that.

    A writer from a Colt site answers questions from NESN's Jeff Howe about the Colts. He discusses Manning's season in relation to the Colt injuries, Jacob Tamme replacing Dallas Clark, Jerry Hughes, Manning getting more pressure from opposing pass rushes this year, and which injury has hurt the Colts the most this year.
