I hope you are right and obviously, I hope we win.
But I also think that the Bears linebackers are better in coverage than ours are (espcially Briggs), and I liked the way the Bears mixed it up on offense.
Also, Orten is a short-drop, good mechanics (but not great) QB who gets the ball out fast and on target, with decent accuracy. Our QB is not that, and he doesn't do those things. Tarvaris breaks from the pocket and runs downfield. Gee, I wonder if he can outrun Colts safety Bob Sanders (!)
:P (I bet the Colts safeties are dreaming about this game).
Our front 4 is better than the Bears. But the Bears left tackle did a good job on Freeney. I think Freeney is going to be a major issue in this game.
They had a full day more than we did to rest and prep...
I don't want to end on a depressing note, so here it is:
- The Colts are playing without Center Jeff Saturday
- Manning is coming off rust and an injury
- Their offense is "complex" and has not meshed yet
- We are at home
- "Some people" (Jarred Allen) might be a bit pissed off, after last week
Whenever you have our defense + AP, you are never out of a game and I think we have a chance in this game.
