    While everyone is talking about the Interception at the end the loss can be attributed to 2 key series.

    1) After the Colts scored on the opening of the second half, the offense went 3 and out - putting our defense back on the field. HAd we gotten a Field goal or even just used up 5 or so minutes our defense would have responded. The second TD to tie the game gave Indy Momemtum.

    2) On the series before the Final INDY TD - the too many men in the huddle penalty hurt. We had the ball and the lead. All we needed was 2 or 3 first downs to ice it.

    So what you're saying is Josh McDaniels sucks?

    Just making sure...

    Was our opening possession of the 2nd half the one where Maroney returned the kickoff?

    This was another problem I had with the coaching staff last night. Maroney CLEARLY looked tentative all game, whether due to injury or nerves. Why have him out there when Hobbs had been more effective to begin with. Didn't he get stopped on the 15?

    Another question is why did we have Maroney running up the middle and Dillon running outside? Also, why did we run crappy draws with Heath Evans?

    Maybe it's a union thing. :D
