IND Defense not such a great play? (1 Viewer)

Dan Orlovsky is starting (not that hes great or anything but hes better than CPep and he was respectable before he got hurt) and Bob Sanders probably wont play.

 
Freeney and Mathis should wreak havoc on that bad Lions offensive line. This game should be a virtual mirror image of last weeks Colts game against the Bengals.

 
Thank goodness I have time to drop the IND D and pick up the DET D before this weekend's game. Thanks blackjack.

I'd feel a lot better about this if Calvin Johnson wasnt questionable. Sanders being out is a big deal though.Also, :rolleyes: to the thread full of idiots with nothing better to say than :excited: : As if there's no chance Detroit might have a decent week.

Yes, Calvin is questionable. And McDonald is out. And Furrey is on IR. And Roy Williams was traded. And RB Kevin Smith is questionable. And Rudi Johnson is, well, Rudi Johnson.But hey, I think John Standeford and Keary Colbert should have no trouble helping Orlovsky light up the scoreboard.

Sorry, but I think they summed it up pretty well with :loco: to say the indy D isn't a good play because Dan Orlovsky is going to start is pretty friggin ridiculous. Seriously, say that outloud and try not to laugh...

:goodposting: I though this thread would be some sort of joke, but turns out the OP was serious. Who in their right mind can consider IND D less than a stellar play this week?

I think Sanders plays per Sportsline:Sanders practices on Friday: Colts S Bob Sanders practiced in full for the first time this week and is listed as questionable for Week 15's game against Detroit.(Updated 12/12/2008).

Guess you missed the part about Bob Sanders. Twice.

And Rudi Johnson is, well, Rudi Johnson.
At least Rudi got his underwear back from Tatum Bell.Oh wait, no he didn't. :lmao:
 
MIN defense only scored 4 pts in my league last week vs DET :thumbdown: And I would think their playmakers are better than INDYs.
A few differences in that situation:1. The game last week was close throughout -- the Lions focused on shutting down Peterson, and Frerotte got hurt, bringing in Tarvaris Jackson. It's highly unlikely that the Lions will be able to slow down the Colts' offense, so chances are, the Lions will get behind early and be forced to throw a lot.2. Culpepper played almost the entire game -- he got hurt on one of the final plays. Orlovsky has missed 5 weeks with a broken thumb with a torn ligament involved. And there has been some speculation around town that his hand isn't 100%. So, at best, he'll be rusty, and at worst, he won't be able to finish the game, and they'll have to go with an unprepared Drew Stanton or Drew Henson, who seems to get sacked every time he drops back. I'd be shocked if the Colts don't get at least 5 sacks and 3 turnovers. TDs are too hard to predict, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if they score. The only danger I see is if you play in a league where you get points for points against, and only if Calvin Johnson plays (I think he is expected to play). They could easily let off the gas and let the Lions score about 20 points. Since they'll have 45, it won't matter.
 
This game is also on a fast turf indoors. Freeney and Mathis are both healthy. They've been terrors the last few weeks. They'll sacks. Its the Lions. They'll also get turnovers. Especially once they fall behind, which is almost a given with Indy's offense.

 
As if people were actually worried about Orlovsky.......this is to help settle the OP's stress. :shrug:

December 10, 2008

Dan Orlovsky struggled in practice Wednesday during passing drills, according to MLive.com. He is recovering from a broken thumb.

Our View:He is namely having issues with gripping the ball, and his status for Week 15 at Indianapolis is not looking good as of right now. Daunte Culpepper is also battling a shoulder injury.

One, no guarantee he doesn't play. And I'll take a Sanders-less Indy D against the Lions with Orlovsky and possibly no Calvin Johnson. But still, if you want to hang your hat on Orlovsky as someone who will carve up the Indy D, then by all means start another D. Me, I just happen to like the matchup....
 
For all the :rolling_laughing_guy: in this post, we shoulda known how this was gonna turn out.

So far, I've got 2 points for the lone fumble recovery by these jokers.

SHOULDA KNOWN!

Just dropping in to eat my crow. I think this game will probably cost me advancing to the title game. 2 fumbled punts doesn't help the IND defense but DET is pretty much doing whatever they want on offense. The Horror!!!
