    Agreed for the most part, but the secondary does not deserve a B. Aside from Wheatley on the first possession, they didn't make a stop all night. The only other punts we forced came on a great play/tackle by Vrabel and one when the Colts were running the clock out. Our ball control offense is the only thing that masked a terrible game by the secondary.

    Once again, a very objective and spot-on report card from Felger. Tough to argue with anything he said, though as one poster mentions, I think a B- for the secondary was a tad generous. I'd drop them into the Cs.

    Calling Cassel's timeout a negative without knowing why it was called was stupid on Felger's part.

    I would suggest reviewing previous performances by Manning.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not necessary. The secondary might have prevented the big play (more a function of scheme anyway), but it was at the expense of Manning carving them up underneath and pretty much moving the ball at will when the Colts needed to score.

    I saw nothing from the secondary that would indicate they played anything but average -- hence a C.

    Outside of a couple great early Wheatley plays, the secondary never made a play when they needed to. Their play wasn't detrimental, but it wasn't above-average either.

    I'd be curious as to why you feel the secondary merits an above-average score?
