    Offensively the Colts have to play a whole lot better than they did vs the Ravens. Can't depend on getting 2 TDs and some friendly calls from the Refs for points. Seemed like nothing in the running game worked, esp the slow developing draw plays. Defensively, I'd think the game plan would be nearly identical to what Coyer did vs the Ravens. Blast the running lanes early and make Greene and Jones break multiple tackles for decent gains. Make a rookie QB beat you for the win. We can't let up now, got to keep the gas pedal to the floor.

      As a Jets fan, I'm mostly concerned about Manning to Clark.

      The thing about the Chargers is much like the game against the Patriots in the '06 playoffs, they made a lot of stupid mistakes against the Jets. Shaun Phillips headbutting D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Vincent Jackson kicking the challenge flag, three missed field goals, etc. I don't expect stuff like that from the Indianapolis Colts.

        The Colts stopped a really good Ravens run but the Jets have a better one. They scored 20 on a really good Ravens defense but the Jets have a better one. If Manning can not throw those 2 picks that Ed Reed got he will be fine but they got a little Ed Reed out there in Jim Leonhard. I don't expect the Jets to win but I will be rooting for them.

        We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

          Don't kid yourself, Jim Leonhard is not Ed Reed and he does not cover the ground that Ed Reed can. Ed Reed can recover while the ball is in the air even if he bit slightly on a head fake, Jim Leonhard cannot. That will be the difference. Plus, the Ravens' D-line is much better, so I expect the Colts to run the ball better in this game. The Jets' secondary is definitely better as a unit but like someone else said, Dallas Clark and Austin Collie hold the keys for the underneath routes and Joseph Addai along with Mike Hart protecting Manning real well will make that subtle difference for us to be able to score enough points.

          This game is still about the Colts' D finally earning the respect it deserves, IMO. The whole NFL will be talking about them after this game is over.

            I am leaving it to the Colts players and coaches to not look past the Jets. IMO, they're so close to what the Ravens are as a team it'll be like playing them again with the chance to improve on what didn't work. I think we'll ditch the slow run plays in favor of fast handoffs between the tackles. Our OL can get a push at first but can't hold blocks at all. The stretch and shotgun draw plays won't work. Addai is very good if he doesn't have to think about a bunch of stuff and can just take the hand off and bust through a gap. Hart doesn't have the thinking problem Addai does but is less talented. A good short yardage back.

            Defensively, I think we'll see them play at a high level again. Sanchez is healthier than Flacco and has more weapons but less experience. Shonn Greene looks good but Ray Rice is better, as is Chris Johnson who the Colts contained twice this season.

            If we don't give up a defensive or ST touchdown I think we will win by 10+ points.

              I think we will struggle against the likes of Shonn Greene more than the likes of Ray Rice or Chris Johnson. Ray Rice is 5'8", 210, Chris Johnson is 5'11", 200, while Shonn Greene is 5'11", 230. Tony Richardson is a significantly better Run Blocker than either Ahmard Hall or Le'Ron McClain, and Greene has 3 Pro Bowlers on his Offensive Line. The Colts D is built to stop people like Johnson and Rice. The difficulty with those two are catching them. Once you get a hand on them you can normally bring them down. Getting a hand on Greene is only half the battle. He, and Thomas Jones, are bruising Power Backs. I expect to see the Jets break a lot of tackles in the game on Sunday.

              The inside 5 is probably a bit closer. 3 of the Ravens inside players (Ray Ray, Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata) are great but I don't think a lot of Pryce and Ellerbe isn't that great (yet). I also like the inside guys for the Jets (David Harris, Bart Scott, Shaun Ellis) while Pouha and Douglas are better than Pryce and Ellerbe. We won't run on the Jets either so lets not kid ourselves about it.

              We got good exchange out of them with Clark and Collie before the starters were pulled and I wouldn't be shocked to see it again. If the Jets bring 5 or 6 men pressures then Manning should have a field day, but repeatedly against the Chargers the Jets dropped into a Zone cover system and rushed only 4. Manning won't want the Jets defense to dictate what he does or doesn't do. Also, while we can't really compare him against Revis, Reggie Wayne, in the 2 times that he has faced him, has always got decent exchange out of Nnamdi Asomugha. If we get decent exchange out of Revis (maybe 4 or 5 catches, 50-60 yards and possibly a TD) as well as good numbers from Clark, Collie and Garcon then we should do well.

With short bullet passes and long bombs he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy’s Defensive Line.

              In Baseball the object is to go home and be safe.

                I live in NY and read the media here often.

                Man, reading the papers here, you'd think we have ZERO shot at beating the Jets.

                NY Post has "Hoosier Daddy!" with a picture of Rex Ryan bouncing Peyton on his knee.

                Clever, but we'll see who has the last laugh come Sunday.

                  I might agree with you on the Chris Johnson, but Ray Rice is exactly the type of back the Colts have had a problem tackling in the past. He is like Maurice Jones-Drew in that getting a hand on him is not enough, he's too strong and thick and his center of gravity is too low.

                  For the sake of comparison, the Colts did very well vs. Willis McGahee this year, who about the same size as Shonn Greene. On the flipside they did have problems with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams, but I think that had more to do with being underprepared for the Wildcat offense. They had no problems tackling Tim Hightower or Beanie Wells. LenDale White has never given them big problems. I think as long as they don't fall back into trying to get the big shoulder knockdown hit and just stick to fundamentals, the Colts will do pretty well against Greene and Jones.

                  I also don't agree that Richardson is so much better than Hall or McClain, and I doubt he will be that much more of a difference maker vs. McClain in the last game.

                  Their OL does appear to be better, probably the best run blocking OL in the league. Our DL will have their work cut out for them, and I expect to see a lot of Foster and Brock at DE early in the game.

                        Wow, that was HORRIBLE.

                        Why bring everyone to the line of scrimmage?

                        Of course they'll pass deep.

                          Wow, just wow.

                          You can NOT settle for FG there.

                          Playcalling is terrible.

                            GREAT WIN! We are in the SUPER BOWL! :)

                            Both the offense and the defense adjusted within the game.

                            Great to see our Running game working, I hope that continues to be the case in Super Bowl.

                            Very good balanced effort today. I hope we continue to click on all cylinders in the SB.

                                A great win for the Colts and excellent job by Caldwell. Should be a shootout vs the Saints.
