True. Manning was horrible till about the second half of the Pats game during the playoffs and Indy's run D came back from the dead in the playoffs. A remarkable turnaround.
On the other hand, Indy's O pounded the Bears today. Complete domination. Racked up 438 yards. Ran 81 plays (Bears ran 47). They controlled the line of scrimmage. Ran for 191 yards. A real drubbing.
I agree, my point was Indy would never have had the chance to do that to the bears, if there defense had not played so well. The colts would come on the field and drive. On top of that the bears would go three and out sending that d right back out there to defend against manning and co. Only a matter of time until they tire out playing like that.
Not taking anything away from the colts, but they have always had a crazy offense. There problem was the d not being able to allow Manning and his weapons to stay on the field.
