Finally! I cant wait to see this new defense in action and put the hurt on Luck! Manning gets revenge on his old team and doesnt hand the ball off to Hillman in the redzone and we win convincingly, 31-16
Colts offense looks solid weapons wise, but their interior Oline is pretty mediocre to below average. We need Austin, Knighton, Wolfe, Jackson (vickerson?) to wreck havoc and not allow andrew to step up. Limit the big play (TE up the seams and Hilton/Nicks over the top). Play physical on Wayne and don't let him catch ball after ball to move the chains.
Their defense is pretty meh as well. Did add Jackson and Jones to it in the offseason, and Vontae Davis is solid. Werner has apparently had a great camp, but no Mathis means very limited pass rush. I would use the run a lot to start the game to see what their Dline is really made of and establish physicality.
For his career, Luck takes a sack about once every 16 dropbacks. If we shut down the running game and make them one dimensional I expect that number to be half that for this game. Not to mention hes fumbled 16 times in 2 years. Force him to throw outside the numbers by running cover 2 and man cover-1 with a robber and we'll give him fits. Im so excited to see what this defense can do.
