With the media hype on this game getting out of hand, the running up the score talk getting out of hand, I thought it might be good to have a consolidated football only thread. Last week, we had a Skins fan post some good stuff re: Skins gameplanning, and I think that should become a weekly thing. Obviously we have some quality Colts posters here, so it shouldn't be that hard to get a good look from the other side. So I'd like to hear what others think on how these two teams will attack each other on both sides of the ball. For the Pats, I think it's simple - take what they give you. To be honest, I don't see how this Colts D can stop Brady, b/c every one of their strengths we can turn into a weakness. A lot of teams I've seen play the Colts this season have made it too obvious whether they were going to pass or run, and that just lets guys like Sanders or Freeney dictate the game. The Pats won't let that happen. If Sanders creeps up to the line or into the box, we'll beat them deep. We can counteract Freeney and the pass rush with screens. If Sanders stays back, we can run Maroney and demolish them at the LOS. Whatever they have, we can beat, and I think we'll be in 3 or 4 wide sets most of the game, and we'll run out of that, too. I think we'll see a lot of running out of shotgun, Brady hands it off to Faulk or Maroney out of the gun. I think this might be the game where we end up doing more damage on the ground than we have in any other game thus far. Defensively, it's always problematic trying to think of how to stop Peyton. Last season, Hobbs and Samuel did a great job of taking Wayne and Harrison out, so Peyton just attacked us in the middle. Unfortunately, Peyton has learned the lesson of patience as well as Brady has at this point in his career and probably won't waste a half trying to get the ball downfield again. Clark's probably the key of the game for us, and I think Thomas and Harrison will be used to neutralize him. Addai is always worrisome, but if Seymour gets more reps, there's no doubt the rush defense is infinitely better with him in there. Other's thoughts?
