    With Indy's inability to run the ball this year, do you think our base defense for this game will be the nickel defense, even on first down?

    Addai and Rhodes(sp?) are decent backs and Addai in particular looks like he has a future. I don't think we sit in the nickel.

    They also go no-huddle from time to time and I think we might see that often to limit substitutions.

    Neither Addai, nor Rhodes has been very successful this year. That doesn't mean they won't be against us, but they have not been very successful running the ball. I am not nearly as worried about defensing the run as I am defensing Indy's passing game.
