    long kickoff returns. Before Sunday, the Colts also allowed a 104-yard return for a touchdown against the New York Jets and an 87-yard punt return for a touchdown against Washington.

    They also allowed a 48-yard kickoff return against Tennessee and a 41-yarder against Jacksonville.
    If our special teams unit ever was to step up and return a big one it might be sunday.

    Anyone else pissed off that our game got moved from primetime to 4:15 eastern?

    • I was kinda scared of the Cards last week, but this week I feel good about beating the Colts. I tend to feel scared of teams we're supposed to beat and confident when we face teams we're supposed to lose against.

      I hope that this game is shown in Hawaii. Man... if it's not... :evil:

      • I can't wait to see Carpenter on the field. He really had some moves rushing the passer. As the boys blog says, he shows more moves than Ware in 2 years. He's not the athlete that Ware is, but I see Carpenter as a very smart player with good size and instinct. I don't know I can someone says he's slow. Because he couldn't caught Cartwright from behind?
        He's a cover guy and that's un upgrade over Ellis. I hope he shows what he can do, because he can be a very special player.

          Not expecting much out of Carp. Just hope he doesn't look like a fool. I have a feeling that Indy will be utilizing their TEs often in this game.

          I think Newman can hold Harrison without a TD. Henry will shoulder a lot of pressure covering Wayne. He's gonna have to have to have his breakout game of the season this weekend. Not afraid of Indy's ground game.

          This is the game Julius needs to shine.

            One thing that is key to this game....is the turnover ratio. In every game that has been close for Indy they have had a negative turnover ratio. If we can force some turnovers we have a good chance.

            I also agree with the fact that JJ needs to have a big game...even tho every back that seems to go against the Colts has a big game. They have a terrible run defense...and I really think this will do wonders for our ball-control offense. This will be one of the few games where we won't have to use the pass to set up the run.

            I really think that we need to score in the redzone. We have been a great team at getting points...but scoring touchdowns inside the 20 will be a big factor in this game. We should have some good oppurtunities to do this with their undersized LB using witten/fasano as well as TO to abuse their small corners in the redzone.

                Interesting to see you mention lb and te...i also feel this will be a tell tale.

                The thing that worries me is that in the press conference it came off to me that Singleton would get some snaps on more run downs whereas Carp would come in on maybe 2nd or 3rd down....plus carp will also probabaly get some snaps in nickle. I'm very worried about our nickel defense...it doesn't stack up well against 2 TE...i really dont' wanna see newman on clark...the one thing that I guess I could see is...Henry on Clark....Glenn/Newman on Wayne/Harrison. However I highly doubt we'll see ourselves stack up like that. I have a feeling we will be seeing more Singleton in this game because parcells won't want to overwork Carp...between special teams/standart d/nickle Carp should see alot of the field.

                    I don't know. Did you? Contrary to popular belief, I don't go back and read everyone's posts.


                    I think that the Cowboys will have to start someone besides Greg Ellis this week.



                    ...did anyone else happen to say that? If so, I'm sorry for plagerism. :roll:


                    Back to all seriousness, I think we should put Ware on the Strong side this week... and see how he can handle it going forward. I think it took too long for Parcells to figure out that Ellis could play SOLB. I don't want to make that mistake again. SOLBs are harder to find and Burnett seems to be working well at WOLB anyways. If Ware can play both positions well, we could seriously confuse offenses and get the best match ups possible. I know Joey Porter plays both sides and that is part of the reason the Steelers can mix it up so much.

                      The game was moved from noon Dallas time ( 1:00 EST ) to 3:15 Dallas time (4:15 EST) so it can be on national TV. You should be happy about that right since you don't live in the Dallas or Indy markets. I don't think it was going to be national TV before they moved the start time.

                        That matchup Scares me. Flozell has so much trouble with speed rushers...we may need some backside help.
                        I think you'll see the TE being lined up on that side a lot and Barber & Jones chipping him coming out of the backfield.

                            We need a 150 yds + out of JJ this week. Indy's run defense is horrible and we should be able to put up a total of 175 yds on the ground.

                            • We should only throw the ball between 20-25 times assuming we can keep the score close. The best defense for the Colts offense is a really good ball control run game that keeps Peyton off the field.
