What is Wrong with the Colts?

This has been a wacky season in the NFL. For one, the Pittsburgh Steelers, last year's Super Bowl Champions, are not even going to make the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks, who played Pittsburgh last year in the playoffs, are stumbling at 8-5, having lost to the lowly Arizona Cardinals last week. Given, the Seahawks have played all but two games with two hobbled superstars in Matt Hasselbeck and Shaun Alexander, but I'm still surprised. Did you know that since December 2005, eight players on the Cincinatti Bengals team have been arrested? Those orange and black stripes are beginning to look white and black. Some other wacky things include Brett Favre and Eli Manning. Brett is almost 65, still has a rocket for an arm, and refuses to quit. Eli is still underperforming and I'm still not convinced that he'll ever come close to his brother in talent, leadership, mechanics, or making good commercials. How about the Chicago Bears? They are quite possibly the worst-best team ever. They continue to win, but the critics refuse to lay off of them. Then there is the Cowboys, finally somebody got some sense in them and realized that Drew Bledsoe is not a winner. Did Parcells forget why the Patriots won three Super Bowls after he left? Yup, it's because they benched Bledsoe. Tony Romo is turning into another Tom Brady, in talk that is. I don't think he'll ever win a Super Bowl in Dallas. It's been a while since I've sang, "When the Saints Go Marching In." Reggie Bush is the #1 decoy in NFL history, and Drew Brees is playing like a champ. I bet the Texans kick themselves everyday for having drafted Mario Williams instead of Reggie Bush. The Texans claimed that they didn't need a running back because they had Domanick Davis. Now that Domanick Davis is out for the season, the boo birds are out in Houston. Amongst all of these headlines of 2006, the wackiest thing in my mind is how the Colts cannot put together a decent defense to save their lives. Last week the Colts allowed 375 yards on the ground. 375! In one game! And that's not to mention the return yards that Jacksonville tallied, which was 178 yards! Albeit, Peyton Manning's offense only scored 17 points, but I believe that defense affects offense. The weight of the game is on the shoulders of the Colts offense every game and it is beginning to show now that they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. Maybe this is a sign that the Colts are going to win the Super Bowl. In years past, The Colts have been a totally different team during the regular season than in the playoffs. They have been awesome in the regular season and lousy choke artists in the playoffs. Hmmm.......I think Tony Dungy is on to something!
