2 down. 2 to go.


Well the Colt's pulled out all stops against the Jags and are making me a believer. About 4 games ago when I looked at the AFC playoff picture, there were 4 teams that I ranked as the cream of the crop atop the AFC: the Pats, Ravens, Steelers, and Jets. Given the injuries to the Colts during the season made it easier to make those choices. A lot can change in a 4 week span. I am not ready to say the Colts are now in that "Cream of the crop" group just yet. Especially with Collie sustaining yet another concussion. The Colts offense clearly needs him in the lineup if they are to make any noise at all this post-season. After watching the game between the Jets and Steelers yesterday, the Jets to me look like the same team of last year even with all of their off-season additions. They're still a run oriented offensive team (as they should be to mask their obvious deficiencies at QB). The one area they have improved at is their secondary though with the addition of Peyton's nemesis Antonio Chromartie. The Steelers on the other hand are well, "the Steelers." That game you could clearly see what Troy Palamalu is to the Steelers defense. I remember reading an article on ESPN that talked about how Steelers DC Dick Lebeau throws out over half the plays in the their defensive playbook when Troy's out. I don't think the Jets win yesterday's contest if Troy is in the lineup. That being said, the Colts are half way to being in the playoffs. Them making it was never the problem as far as I'm concerned. It was doing something once they get their that concerns me more. I haven't heard a word on Austin Collie's status yet but, given the fact that this is his 2nd concussion in less than 6 weeks doesn't look good for his immediate return to the lineup. Bottom line the Colts need either him or a healthy Addai if they are to have any real chance in the post season. Until then, 2 down. 2 to go.
