I know it's only preseason but....


There are a few things that are really bothering me.  The first being the defensive performance.  I realize that we had a few guys dinged, but for crissakes I would think that the guys who started would use this as an opportunity to step up and show coaches and fans their best.  I have always felt that Freddy Keiaho got a raw deal by being released.  Based on what he showed me today, I now feel the Colts cut the wrong linebacker this past week.  Dammit Freddy, you stunk the place up today!  Four missed tackles that I saw.  Dude, I learned in High School to keep my head up and wrap when making a tackle.  It looked today like all the Colts linebackers made a pregame deal that only safeties could make friggin tackles.  The tackling by the defense as a whole sucked.  Secondly, what happened to the commitment to getting the defense off the field so Peyton could get more opportunities to score?  The third down performance was non freaking existant.  Thirdly, I hope to gosh somebody, anybody steps up and shows that they can return a punt or kickoff, or field position is going to be a way bigger issue than it should be.   I know it's preseason, but jeez, isn't that when you work on the main issues you need to improve on?  Right now for the Colts, the focus just needs to be simplified to tackle, block, catch and run.  There is no reason that a team with the kind of talent we have, including the backups shouldn't have the pride to put up a decent performance, preseason or not.  Okay, I'm done, stick a fork in me.  It will hurt less than watching our defense today.
