Colts' Coaching Theories Should Match Up Well vs. Broncos



Hi, fellow Stampeders!

I thought about this before the Chargers game (guilty of looking ahead), and obviously a lot of my theories were disproved last night, but I'm considering last night a total off-night.

Anyway, to the facts.:

Peyton is awesome. We need to do to him exactly what the Bolts did to Luck last night - keep him off the field. This should play to Pep Hamilton's ground-pounding, short-passing offense, again, assuming that the receivers can catch the ball, especially on third downs. Up until last night, the Colts were top in the league in sustaining long drives and scoring at the end of them. Limiting Peyton to 8-10 possessions will go a long way towards a Colts W.

Still on offense, the Broncos pass D is atrocious. Even with Von Miller in his first game back from suspension, there is no reason to think that Luck can't complete most of his short range passes (maybe with some Stickum for the WRs). I still wonder why DHB is getting more snaps than T.Y., though.

On the defensive side of the ball, Coach Pagano is first and foremost a secondary coach. Our secondary is pretty good (has anyone seen Laron Landry other than the trainer?) as long as Greg Toler doesn't commit stupid penalties. Mathis is Mathis and I'm sure he'd love a chance to slam Peyton to the turf. With Peyton, the only shots are to make him make plays on the move, and to try and disguise coverages at the line of scrimmage.

Bottom line, the offense needs to sustain their drives and score at the end of them, and the defense needs to challenge Peyton as best they can.

Oh, and the team can't look ahead to the bye week.
