The one person I have not seen get ANY credit for this win...

I LOVE reading all the coverage and posts after a game like this.  There is so much good to say and challenge points that need to be addressed (ie. stretch plays with 3 defenders in the backfield before we hand off the ball).  We even got some MSM credit on both ESPN and NFL network.  I know...shocking!  Garçon got my game ball for his hustle and ability to play through the current disaster in Hatti.  My heart goes out to him and I give him all the credit for a truly professional performance.

I have to say that one person is getting left out in all the posts and commentary.  That person is LARRY COYER!  He IS the reason the Colts defense was able to play a game like we Colts fans have never seen.  His schemes were well designed and superbly executed.  That is the mark of a great coach.  Plans are key, but transferring that knowledge to the players and getting them to execute is paramount for coaches.  Coyer has been successful at that all season.

As I write this, I flash on a play not 30 seconds into the third quarter.  Baltimore got the kickoff to start the 2nd half and (I think) had gained a first down.  The Colts then showed an alignment I had never seen before.  I think it was 2 or 3 linemen down with a LB and a CB up to the line showing blitz.  The alignment cause the "Unibrow from Delaware" to get confused and call timeout.  Coming out of the largest adjustment period that a team has, our defense confused the opposing offense.  Just one example of the way Coyer has changed our mentality and the way our defense is viewed around the league.

We NEED to give credit to a change that has revolutionized the way our team is viewed!  Coyer is a great addition to our team and I love what he has done for our defense.
