    Yes, Samari used to do a number on Harrison...and then...we couldn't stop them.

    I agree that probably no one can cover harrison one v one with no safety help or rolled coverage, but that's why I also said, can he cover wayne? If he can cover wayne and you role the coverage towards harrison, you might be able to contain the dmg and make Manning hold the ball=sacks and a confused/frustrated manning = Colts lose.

    Titans aren't allowed to blitz Gayton, so he will have to hold it longer against the Titans than a team that wll blitz him - he says without saying how bad the DC is.

    LOL! And that is one of the main reasons for our success against Manning in previous years. What kills me is that Manning rips us apart when we play zone...so you may as well drill him.

    Virtually every team that disrupted the Colts passing attack did it in one of two ways (or both). They blitzed him a few times (making sure they drilled him a couple of times...sack or no sack) and then they did zone blitzes (so he didn't know if and from where they were coming - playing mental games with him).

    You can't play mental games with him when he knows ur not gonna blitz him.

    Pitt and SD hit him many times...so when they DID play zone, he threw the ball early expecting pressure. But when you don't get ANY pressure on him...he'll kill ya! And he has the last couple of years.

    Plus, any football fan will tell you that getting pressure on the QB makes the whole secondary better. But having great talent in the secondary with no pass rush is meaningless. They MUST hit Manning...period.

    Hopefully the GREAT Schwartzee will figure that out!

    Gut - it was the O-Line's fault...just trying to be a team player here.

    Exactly. Peyton Manning is the perfect example of a team player.

    UPDATE :
    according to an article in te Tennessean :
    Last week, the Titans also entertained former 49ers cornerback Ahmed Plummer on a free-agency visit, but indications are the team isn't currently interested in signing him.

    Not exactly a fan of injured players over the past few seasons...we got enough of them already.
