In the Hunt...

Somehow, someway, your Indianapolis Colts are figuring out how to win games. And don't look now, but we're back in the thick of things. Our D, minus the Plumber, looked a little soft, but Peyton and the O looked magical. That's what we've been waiting for all season. Jo got his hundred, Marv got a TD, and Senor Manning was no huddling and shredding that porous Houston secondary. I still haven't figured out what was/is wrong with my main man Bob, but just how valuable is this guy? The defense looks so solid with him, and then he's out and poof Slaton runs for a career high. Our D, just ain't the same with out that human guided missile blowin folks up at the line of scrimmage. Now we have to go on the road and play a struggling, yet dangerous Chargers team. Two letters for ya L T. Get well soon Bob!!!

Other observations:

-Jo finally got his first 100 yd game of the season.

-As good as our offense was, our receivers dropped 6 passes in the first half.

-Freeney got two huge sacks. Let's hope this gets him rollin'

-For the second straight game Melvin Bullit intercepted a pass to preserve the win. How deep are we at safety?

Finally a little shout to Miss Kate: your man Pujols (I won't make any jokes I promise) won the NL MVP. That may be the only baseball news you'll ever see here, at least till the NAP gets a team.

Ha ha. Thanks for the love. I was actually thinking this morning about the magical season when both the Colts and my Cards won it all in their respective sports - what a magical year that was. So obviously I have some lean years I'll have to suffer through since luck like that just doesn't hold out.
