    Have to go with Malroney-if the Colts drop their safeties back in Cover 2 to start the game, then JM should cram him down their throats, get them to cheat the LOS, and then the passing game will open up.

    However-if the Colts started off the game like they did in the Jax game(putting Sanders as that 8th man in the box)-then by all means, throw the darn ball.

    I dont think there is an X-Factor. This team is so adaptable, what they do will depend on what Indy TRIES to do. I bet the Colts take away the deep game, take some risks against the run shooting the gaps and force the pats to make long drives. The Colts will HAVE to create turnovers and get to Brady early and often with a 4 vs. 5 rush, which would turn into a 4 vs. 6 rush if they are successful early on. Creating turnovers is the only chance the Colts have.

    And of course the Pats get to practice against a great BB-coached defense every week, so it's not like there's much they haven't seen and aren't prepared for. Kevin Faulk better hold onto that damn ball!

    kyle brady: primarily as a blocker. I think well use him to slow the rush off the edge so brady can take his occasional shot down the field to moss. also in the running game, in last years regular season game against the colts, we used graham to get to sanders to open the running game and it worked early but a dillon fumble forced us out our game a little. I think they will use kyle brady to get to the secondary level of that defense and take sanders out the play.

    There is no X factor. Just a W factor. And that's Tom Brady.

    You are the best. Poster of the week so far in my mind. Keep up the good work.

    And I believe the X factor will be Hobbs on D and Maroney on O.

    Can Hobbs set up the Short field like in the AFCCG?
    His returns kept that second half from being worse!


    Can Gonzalez emerge as a the replacement for Stokley?
    That would make a threat at the slot and still have Clark at the tight end.
