Colts Electric Against The Chargers

It was a tough game in San Diego, but the Colts leave San Diego with a win.

This was a game that the Colts needed to get under their belt ot have the confidence to move on to the next few games.

Jamey Richards stepped in for Jeff Saturday, and didn't do too bad.  With the early season injuries, Richards was allowed to get some playing time to be able to experience the protection calls that he needed to make, today.

The running game was great, but was good enough to allow for some great throws.  It was just enough to keep the Chargers off-balance.  The Chargers played a really good game, but just could not make the stops when they needed to.

The Colts defense was hurting without Bob Sanders.  However, Dwight Freeney is showing that the injury of  last year is starting to have little affect on his play.  He was really good tonight. 

The offensive line looked great.  For the most part, Peyton had a lot of time to get rid of the ball.

We now enter a few weeks of a weaker schedule for the Colts.  They cannot sleep on some of these teams coming up.  They just cannot do it!

I believe that the Colts run the table for the rest of the season.  And will be a shoe in for the wild card.  But, and this is a big BUT; they have to get a healthy Bob Sanders into the lineup, and soon.  They are giving up too much on defense.

However, this week is now over.  I will revel in the victory, and celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday knowing that the Colts will NOT miss the playoffs this year.

By the way; isn't Adam Vinatieri, magic?  Mr. Clutch. 

I have to say, though, that I am very impressed with Anthony Gonzalez.  He gets my game ball.  Joseph Addai gets a close second with over 100 total yards.

Next week, we're at the Cleveland Browns.
