For the fifth time in six years, the Colts are unbeaten in September and October. Though the combined record of the teams Indy has played to start the season is an underwhelming 11-26, with the best team (record-wise) being the Cardinals, the games on Indy's schedule have resulted in two close, early contests and four blowouts. Since the Miami Dolphins game, the Colts have dominated their opponents from start to finish. Yet, most of the league isn't buying the club as an elite because Indy has not beaten a team like the Patriots, the Broncos, or the Giants, yet.
As always, whatever. I'm kind of used to media not really paying attention to the Colts. Here are the links:
- John Oehser listens to Bill Polian on the radio, who in turn tells us that Reggie Wayne is fine, Donald Brown is OK, and Adam Vinatieri is already lifting weights post-knee surgery. If the Colts decide to rest Brown, Mike Hart will see significant action.
- Turf Show Times thinks the Colts running game stinks after watching Indy's backs run for 156 yards on 23 carries.
- Rams blogger 3k has a very cute new baby daughter.
- More sights and sounds from the Rams game.
- Indeed, the gap between the good teams and the bad teams is as wide as I've ever seen it in recent memory.
- Paul Kuharsky tries to guess what others are thinking.
- The 49ers, the next opponent for the Colts, just announced Alex Smith is their starter again. Alex Smith's first start as a player was against... the Colts in 2005.
- The Colts have a good vibe on defense.
- Indy has won 15 straight regular season games, which is the 5th longest streak in NFL history.
We Colts fans often take all this winning for granted, but to win 15 in a row is a real honor. Everyone and their mother had written this team off last year, going so far as to say the "dynasty" or whatever is done. Amazing how easy it is to make stupid people look, you know, STUPID, isn't it?
