    Couple things that should work out in our advantage...

    - There playing tomorrow Monday night which means a shorter week of preparation.

    - Playing vs a Titans team thats dominating on both sides of the ball, a tough duo with White and the rookie Johnson, a big fast D-line and overall front 7 thats very physical.

    - Look for the Colts to be beat up physically and somewhat drained next Sunday night.

    Here's to injuries! (me giving a toast).
    If what Rodney says is true, then we can expect some Titan chop blocks to Bob Sanders and Colt receivers after Manning picks. Is blind-side Bob even playing tomorrow?

    If the Colts lose tomorrow night, they will desperately need to win the game against us. I fear it could just like the SD game.

    Isn't Bob Sanders expected to return against the Pats?

    I don't wish or hope injuries on any player except Bobby Wade, if he's still in the NFL.

    But, I will go along with the hope that the Titans beat the Colts up physically so they have little in the tank next week.

    Banged up his shoulder a couple of times today. Left the game late after that near pick pass he defensed after he landed hard on the shoulder.

    Win or lose on Monday night, the Colts will be ready to play the Pats. They've played each other so many times its like an inner division game and they don't need any extra motivation.

    It sounds ideal for the Pats to walk in and use this to their advantage, BUT never underestimate the ability for a rival team to get up for one game, even if it is the only game they win the rest of the season, you can bet that the Colts will be ready to play with Gomer Pyle at QB.

    Colts passing attack will eviscerate our DBs.

    Be interesting to see how Cassel does, very interesting.

    I predict something like 35-10 Colts. Sorry.

    I'm not guaranteeing a win or anything, but I don't think there will be that desperation because the Colts have the desperation game tomorrow night. Their division hopes are salvaged or destroyed tomorrow night. It is the biggest must win of their season. That is their Chargers vs. Patriots game, not next week vs. the Pats.

    In fact, if they lose either a real tight game in the last seconds or get blown out, they could be totally deflated from the emotional toll of the game. Basically, the Colts season rests on tomorrow night's game. If they lose, they face the Pats with the realization that realistically all they are playing for is a Wild Card spot at best. They win tomorrow night, and they can still have a shot at the division.

    Good point.

    I guess I'm apologizing b/c every time I say something like that people have their blood boiling and get mad, calling me troll, jets fan, etc.

    The Pats score only 10 points vs. the Colts' defense? Their defense may be worse than the last two the Pats faced.

    But I don't consider the Colts to have a great passing attack either. Their o-line is suspect. Their running game is almost non-existent. Manning has been very inconsistent this season. I was more worried about Cutler passing on the Pats than Manning.

    The Colts are 3-3 and could easily be 1-5 for a reason. They have some serious issues. The center of their defense can be run on. If Morris and/or Jordan are back, expect the Pats to control the game by running these bruising backs against a front seven that doesn't have a player over 275lbs.

    The only way to beat the colts, get some pressure on Manning!!That has been the M/O for a long time.He will get happy feet and throw interceptions.At least move him out of the pocket some.The pass rush will be very key against the colts.

    Great points, there run d is soft I expect the pats to control the clock with the rushing attack, iam guessing over 30 carries for over 150.
