Why do you think this Colts offense has struggled so much and shown such little ability to adjust when facing "genius" defensive schemes? The Pats playoff game last year stands out more than any other. I understand that Bill B. is a great coach and that they were a terrific defense, but that was a great Colts offense which should have done better than they did. The Eagles and Panthers in the last 2 SBs have had plenty more success than the Colts offense did vs. NE.These are the reasons I would give, some obvious, but I'd like to hear other opinions:* Is it that they have given Manning too much responsibility with that offense? Obviously, he is the most knowledgeable QB and all (and probably more qualified than any other QB to have so much influence) but who is to say that any QB should have such responsibility and that they wouldn't be better with a more simplified offense? Manning makes plenty of audibles but I'm not sure that good defenses don't recognize and anticipate them and that they even give the Colts much of a relative advantage.* Is it the pressure of being a great offense led by a great QB? And on the flip side, defenses come at them sick and tired of hearing about Peyton and co. all week from the media.* Is there still too small a sample size of playoff games to come to a final conclusion that this Colts offense chokes?* Is this offense simply an unfortunate collection of players who tend to tighten up in big spots?* Does falling behind, 3 and outs, etc. to start the game get to Peyton's head to the point that he is relegated to being the equivalent of a merely average QB the rest of the game?* Or is it just that offenses rely so much on rhythm that a good defense will always have the edge over a good offense?
