I'm pretty unbiased and get over losses quickly, so this won't be one of those "OMG WE SUCK" threads:
- 1st, we gotta give credit to Indy. Our defense is bend but don't break. They bent us all game long and didn't turn the ball over. A lot of positive rushing yards helped them. Absolutely murdered the clock. Great gameplan on defense. Costanzo locked up Aldon all day. Honestly, just a brilliant game from them.
- We had something going with the power run formations. Decided to go away from it... that hurt us.
- Kap is clearly shaken. Hasn't been the same since Seattle. He needs to do some soul-searching and rekindle that fire. He has the talent and the ability. Also, RUN THE BALL! He had a first down several times, but he's so focused on not trying to be a running QB that he's costing us yardage.
- DON'T BLAME THE RECEIVERS! I personally hate this excuse. It's a cop-out. These are NFL guys, they can get open. Indy just rolled their coverage the right way and Kap locked into one guy all game. It's that simple. I used to be a big college fan. I remember when Ohio State fans were crying that the reason they couldn't win the big one was because they didn't have good enough receivers. On that particular team, Brian Robiskie ended up being a 2nd round pick, Brian Hartline is tearing up the NFL, and DeVier Posey was a 3rd round pick. We might lack gamebreakers, but we have enough talent to get open.
