    I've been reading and hearing some BS that the Pats will be at a disadvantage
    in a home playoff game against the Colts. The theory is that the bad weather will force the Pats to turn more to their "terrible" running game, giving the Colts an edge. How do they come to that conclusion? The Colts as a team through 14 games have gained 1540 yds for a 3.8 ypc average. The Pats have rushed for 1609 and a 4.0 ypc average. So why is there a perception that the Colts have a better run game than the Pats? I'll take a home game against the Colts in crappy weather any day over an away game in Indy.

    Addai especially has struggled of late. His last 6 games have yielded the following results:
    22 carries for 56 yards (2.5ypc)
    21 carries for 72 yards (3.4)
    10 carries for 44 yards (4.4)
    21 carries for 67 yards (3.2)
    13 carries for 32 yards (2.5)
    15 carries for 44 yards (2.9)

    The question has to be asked have they put too much on his shoulders? Since the Patriots game (not suggesting a link) his production has decreased markedly.

    The media are still stuck in October when the Colts had a really good running game. Since they have played the Pats, their running game has been in the toilet. The fact that the Pats don't even try to run the ball in a lot of games is very damning for the Colts.

    They appear to be running the ball very well today. The o-line for the Colts looks to be back to it's usual form. Just in time for the playoffs to get things back into gear.

    Of course the Colts don't run the ball well lately - they've gotten a badly mangled OL.

    Feel free to post useless stats though. That's what it's all about these days.

    How cutting.

    Adds nothing to the conversation, but gee it was smart.

    Yeah that's why the Awesomes are undefeated and the Colts are NOT.
