I am obviously concerned about the slew of injuries to the secondary but the bigger question that I have is why have we not seen any snaps from Jerry Hughes. Sure I will give you that it definetly takes time for pass rushers to develop ..but why not bring Jerry Hughes on 2nd downs to get some additional pressure on the QB. Also if Mathis and Freeney are being neutralized with teams double tagging them without respect for our secondary it would not hurt us to bring in Hughes as additional pressure.
Also Freeney plays his heart out and will take it upon himself to save the secondary by bullrushing the QB and in the process (knock on wood ) there is a good possibility he might get hurt in the season.
The biggest gripe I have against the colts defense is with undersized DB's and CB's if the passrushers are negated ...all the chinks in the armour will open up. Mitch King was supposed to be the solution to bring pressure from a different position on the field , Why not plug in Jerry Hughes at this point.
It would also give the Rookie some meaningful snaps . I for one do not want to see the same old vanilla formations or blitz happy formations which results in big touchdowns making mediocre QB's look like Pro Bowlers.
Cmon Caldwell and Coyer...It is time !!!!!! We can win against the chiefs if this conservative attitude is put aside.
