SO how good are these guys??

Nick Harper
Jason David
Antoine Bethea
Bob Sanders


I already know how bad the run D is but im curious how easy it will be to pass on them??

Im still mystified as to why they are so bad against the run?? They have some talent there, and considering Dungy's pedigree, they should be better??? I dont get it??

They are undersized up front. They really miss Corey Simon this year.

We need to go in there and play our game. Run LJ, and get Tony G involved in the game.

They are way undersized, and they do not tackle well. To be honest, I'm not sure they wouldn't rather face LT than LJ... not that LJ is better, but he's probably better at running through people, and they don't always tackle very well.

To be honest, I'm not sure their pass defense is that great either. They can generate a great pass rush, obviously, but we've always been able to pick apart their cover 2 as well. It shouldn't matter until they show they can stop the run though. Their run defense is so historically bad, over 5 yards a carry, 100+ yards allowed every game... we have to take advantage.

Simon was a bust and Booger has not done much. Bob Sanders is a big hitter but is dumb as GWes when it comes to coverage.

They bite on fakes and misdirection and are soft right up the middle for 5 yards a carry. They have nobody that can cover Pete Gonzalez, so I hope Trent is able to find Pete.

Im not sure about Peter, but Tony should be able to run wild in the secondary. LOL

Another thing nobody is going to mention, is special teams. We really need to win that battle. The Colts have never really had good special teams coverage since Dungy has been there. Dante broke one on them in the playoff game... then when we played the next year he returned a punt inside the 10 if I remember right. Dante might have a couple chances for big returns.

Oh no! We wouldnt want that! Then the offense would be scoring too quickly!!
