One Year Interruption

CLICK TO REACT Facebook

There are too many things to overcome at this stage as far as this season goes. As long as Peyton is there, it won't be a disaster. But Joseph Addai is such an important part of what they do. Their defense is not what it's been. When you have guys like Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders, it's about your ability to play fast. They're so small on defense, if you stay close to them, you should be able to run the ball on them late in the game. They're built to be ahead and they don't have those leads right now.

Are they that far away? No. But the plays that have gone their way in the past aren't going their way now. It's a one-year interruption because of the things that have happened with Peyton and the other nagging injuries they've had.

He was never liked by his team mates nor as a broadcasters. That should speak volumes about him.

Theismann is the man. Single bar facemask for crying out loud.

I think Peytons knee still is not 100 percent. Marvin Harrison is not 100 percent either & looks old at times.

The Colts are growing old, just as the Patriots are doing, and as the 49ers and Redskins of the 80's and 90's did.

I disagree with the esteemed Theisman. The most important position in the game is QB. The Colts have the best QB in the NFL. They'll be fine when they start getting healthier.

Clayton, you are dead wrong. Theismann was recently called by Doc Walker, the toughest guy he ever played with and is always happy to have Joe on his show.
In the off season, Joe T. used to bring his kids to a McDonalds next to where I worked. He was always very friendly and congenial, not like some ex-Skins I have met in the past.

And the reason of that first comment for the purpose of urinating in Joe's cereal or do you disagree with his point?

If so, please elaborate with an opinion and supporting facts.........
