Unlike Preseason where the primary focus is on the Colts and how the roster shapes out, the regular season version of FTITIK includes general thoughts about other teams as well. So without further adu, I bring you the first regular season FTITIK
1.) I think the Colts will have a special teams advantage in the first game of the regular season. I know what you thinking UNPOSSIBLE to quote Shake, but given that Jacksonville has the coaching genius that is Russ Prunell we might actually have an advantage.
2.) I think this is the healthiest we have been entering the start of the season (knock on wood). I know its been rsaid many times here, but I can't stress this enough. Health is one of the major keys for our superbowl aspirations. Lets hope the injury list stays like this.
3.) I think the Titans match up well vs. the Steelers. Do I think they are going to win? No. I still say the defending champs will come out on top, but when you think about the Steelers greatest weakness, there O-Line going up against a strong Titan D-line and a strong Titan O-Line to help neutralize some of those Steeler blitzes, I see this game going down to the wire.
4.) I think Donald Brown will have a few big runs against the Jags on Sunday. I assume (and hope) the Colts will run the ball more (unlike last year) so Brown should get a fair share of touches. I can't wait to see a., hopefully, revamped running game to bring back the playaction pass.
5.) I think im ready for some football!! less than 3 hours away man! not that preseason crap, REAL FOOTBALL!!11!!1!!WOOOOO!!1!!!!!11!1!!
