    It seems like all that anyone wants to talk about is Peyton Manning and the Colts poor run defense. Everyone asks how we are going to stop Manning... but I'm seriously looking for the answer to the question.. How are they going to stop Dallas? Have they shown any ability all year? Other than the first game of the year against the Giants.. and then again when they played Brady and NE.. they have not faced an offense with a lot of legitimate weapons and they don't really appear to have an answer for one either. NE turned the ball over 5 times in their loss and most of those were self inflicted.

    Other than being able to counter and score quickly on offense, I don't see where Indy has the answers.

    This game is going to come down to penalties and turnovers. If Dallas doesn't stop themselves, I think they win this game.

    The key to the Colts is that they make very few mistakes and then they convert the other team's mistakes into points.

    This one very well may come down to the last team with the ball.

    I think it comes down to the Colts Passing Game vs. Dallas Safeties (particularly Watkins & Davis) and the battle of 3rd Down Conversions. Whomever wins those will probably win the game.

    I don't have a problem with Julius' play, but Barber has been on fire lately. I'm a bit afraid that the Colts will be able to contain Julius in this game, but have no answer for Barber. But despite that, Parcells will keep using Julius, to our detriment.

    The one thing I notice is that the Colts can't tackle to save their lives and a bruising type of back like Barber would give them fits.

    Actully the guy that gave them the most fits was shifty Mike Bell.

    here is the problem I see with the Colts... The Colts get the ball, score 7. The Cowboys go to Ball control and the drive stalls or only nets 3... then the Colts put up another 7!!! With this secondary and hardly any pass rush you have to go into this game thinking the Colts can put up 30!!!

    The 90s Cowboys made a living out of jumping on teams who wanted to play Ball Control early... the 90s Boys used Emmitt to salt away a game, the Colts use Playaction to finish teams off!!!

    thank Heavens we have Romo!
