Fun While It Lasted

Michael Wilbon

To quote Tony, "I believe I called that." I watch this team too much and know the tendencies as well as their coaches...And one of those coaches, offensive coordinator Ron Turner, just killed his team. You're finally moving the ball, you're mixing the run and pass effectively down only five points, and you either call or let your shaky QB select a play you gave him the option to select....That's the fifth interception this year return for a touchdown against Grossman...Yes, I blame Grossman...But you have to really blame the coach for not putting a player in the best position to succede...I've increasingly disliked Turner's offense all year...It's too bad, too, because the Colts--while the better team--were beatable tonight...And the Bears don't have a sophisticated enough an offense to do it...And Turner, once again, has Grossman throw it deep with 10 mins. to play when it isn't necessary...

The only thing that needs to happen from here for Indy to win is run the ball a dozen straight times against a defense that's been out there way too long and has no chance to be effective...

Mike,

I don't suppose Lovie will pull Grossman? Stupid question, I guess.

Posted by: Lisa | February 4, 2007 09:34 PM

Sorry, Mike. I feel your pain.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:34 PM

Pulling Grossman now would be like pulling your goalie in the NHL... a mercy benching.

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | February 4, 2007 09:35 PM

Nice call, Wilbon - Grossman has been over his head all night and it's really showing when it matters most.

Posted by: phawken | February 4, 2007 09:35 PM

Agreed. Sorry, Wilbon, but you knew this about Grossman all season and (unlike many) were honest about it...

If Rex didn't ahng that ball up there, Berrian would have scored. Remember how many long passes Berrian caught earlier this year from Rex? My how things have changed since them.

They should put Devon Hester in as a running back.

the sloppy bowl...proved one thing. No matter how good your defense is you still have to have a quarterback that makes good decisions even if he is not the most talented.

Move over. The sand man just knocked out TK.

A few words that describe the game - "The first sack of Manning tonight" - in the fourth quarter...

Posted by: quaodhoc | February 4, 2007 09:38 PM

That's OK. This game has grown dull with age.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:39 PM

MW - sorry about your Bears - you are right - Indy was beatable tonight

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 09:44 PM

Peyton finally gets his ring. Get ready for even more Manning commercials.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:47 PM

Cindy, you did a great job with Tony tonight. I am sure you do not get paid enough! Will you be helping him on the radio?

Sorry Wilbon about your Bears. But I agree with you, Grossman was not handled right by his coach. too bad.
