This is huge news. Brackett and Hayden are essential members of our pass defense and we are going against one of the best passing teams in the league. Our odds of beating Arizona just took a astronomical hit. We pretty much have 2 avenues for winning this game now:
1. Freeney and Mathis both play out of their minds, sack Warner mercilessly, force fumbles and interceptions in the process or cause him to use only short throws because of the pressure.
2. Peyton scores pretty much every time he touches the ball.
That's about it. This game is not looking good guys, and I consider myself a realistic optimist. I just don't see it. Brackett and Hayden are that important. Hopefully, their injuries are like Powers' and they are back next week. Until then, enjoy you more than recommended dose of Tim Jennings and Freddy Keiaho, otherwise known as probably the 2 most hated players currently on the Colts' roster.
Tip to skywalker for telling me and depressing me with the news.
