    Check out the size of the Colts front 7

    If the Pats spread them out and run at them the O-line will get a push on the Colt D-line.

    By the end of the 3rd quarter after having a 300lb O-lineman leaning on them I think they are going to wear down.

    If McFarland is so good, why was he traded?

    But I believe the Pats need to spread the Colts out and get them in favorable one on one matchups.

    Don't discount the fact that June (concussion) and Morris (knee) were both questionable this week.

    My strategy in the running game is to run right at their best player: Dwight Freeney. The guy is a great pass rusher, but he can't get off blocks to stop the run the way their other 3 linemen can.

    I would think Mathis is extremely light and Kaczur and Graham can seal him off easily.

    I agree on June and Morris. The Pats just need to be methodical.

    same thing on the other side

    Indy's OL is small--keep battering them with Sey, Wilfork and Warren--and later in the game, Colvin and Green will tee off on Manning

    The 2006 Patriots morphed into a badass team 5 weeks ago and I fully expect them to beat the snot out of this Indy team.

    In spite of the media annointment, this seems like the weakest Colts team in the last few years and the Patriots are hitting on all cylinders right now.

    I can't believe all the hype that is being spun and actually gets me ticked. But I look back to the Nov game and the D-line was on manning all day. I expect more of the same and I expect a bruised and battered Manning with a crushed spririt at the end of the game.

    Who will Manning throw under the bus after today? O-line for no protection or defense for not stopping the run?
