From Freeney, and other Colts, to ESPN talking heads like Ditka and some print writers, the idea has been repeated that the Colts "exposed" the Pats and provided the Colts with what they need to beat the Pats should they meet again. Their logic makes little sense. 1- The Pats BEAT the unanimously regarded number 1 or 1A team in the NFL, on the road, despite poor officiating, giving up 200+ yds to Addai, and trailing by 10 points in the 4th quarter. In other words, the Colts lost under the best circumstances they are likely to see against the Patriots, in case Freeny, et al, can't undertsand the basic premise here. 2- It was the Pats, not the Colts, that clearly won the battle of in-game adjustments by finally shutting down Addai, figuring out how to keep Freeney and Mathis off Brady's back, scheming to get more pressure on Manning, and coming up with plays to get Moss and Stallworth open deep down the field against a defense that was speciically designed to prevent such long passes. So any weaknesses supposedly exposed this past Sunday were mostly fixed during the game - not in a sour grapes post-game locker room like the Colts'. Since it was the Pats who adjusted better and faster, exactly how does Freeney figure the same thing won't happen next time regardless of whatever the Colts believe they can now exploit? 3- Injuries. Blah, so "Marv" couldn't play, boo hoo. The Pats went in without their leading rusher Sammy Morris, precisely the kind of hard-nosed, pile-driving running back the Colts have trouble with, and the Pats still won, on the road, etc. The Colts were missing some dudes on D? Well, we didn't have Eugene Wilson, our best cover safety and top five tackler. 4- Pronouncements that, "next time it will be different," by the folks who think the Colts now have the secrets to beat the Pats, are exactly right! The Colts might as well not even bother to build a scheme based against the defense they saw on Sunday - they know as well anyone that you rarely see the same thing twice from the Pats. This doesn't mean the Pats don't have things to work on, they do ( to bad re-signing Dan Graham to beat up on Freeney again isn't one of them. I never felt the Pats missed Grambo until Sunday). But don't Freeny and Ditka and the rest realize that it's Colts that have MORE to work on? Like number one straight from Freeney's mouth - 'we've got to figure out how to finish them off.' Bingo, Dwight.
