    I just want to see some good run-blocking. We saw stellar pass blocking last game. Let's keep that in place but add run blocking to our arsenal. If we can open a hole, Dillon can exploit it. He's lost a step, but he still carries a load. He runs angry. We need to get him a hole. Sanders will come blasting into it quite admirably. Think he can do it all day? Dillon can.

    Just one of those things, no biggie. Corey seems to have fumbled a little more this year but he's not been a fumbler in his career and there's no real reason to think he'll fumble on Sunday.

    Speaking of Sanders, the guy seems so aggressive in run support that wouldn't it be pretty easy to catch him cheating and burn him? That's what they did against Troy Palamalu in the last AFC title game.

    If you look at history you will see that Corey Dillon has a long history of taking care of the ball. Thousands of carries as the #1 option on the Bengals offense and always had good ball security.
    I'd be much more worried about Faulk, Graham, Caldwell, Gaffney and especially Watson. Each of those guys make much more nervous than the reliable Dillon.

    Per Boston Globe Albert Breer from the November Indy game:

    – The Patriots had a lot of success throughout the game with straight-man-blocking and inside-zone running plays, and why they didn’t stick to it is anyone’s guess. Those looks develop quickly — neutralizing slanting and stunting from the Colts front — and were just about exclusively responsible for the 97 first-half rushing yards New England produced. When the team started to lean more on counters and traps, trouble followed. The best way to get those plays, slower to develop, is to penetrate and if there’s one thing the Indy line can do, that’s it. Twice in the third quarter, Colts S Bob Sanders quickly diagnosed these and blew them up. The Patriots got away with the first one. But the second one turned a second-and-5 from the Colt 16 into a third-and-7, which the Patriots failed to convert in advance of the missed field goal from Stephen Gostkowski.

    And hopefully the ball doesnt bounce off of Kevins chest again and go into a Colts defenders hand. I like Faulk and he played a really good game Sunday, but I have to admit I was really angered when that pass went right off of him into the air against the Colts.

    colts play a deep cover 2 which makes vertical passing difficult ..i guess it remains to be seen how well our WR's developed if sanders comes up...last 2weeks was all about blitzing teams ..so the WR's were able to find zones...this will be a different and bit difficult IMO
