Steve Slaton had some decent success against us last year: he was the only player to break the 100 yard mark, and he did it twice. This time around our defense has a bit of an axe to grind, and they're making it a mission to stop him from getting to that total again. The topic is such a hot button with the D that Tully wrote about it on his blog.
Chris Johnson knows that the key to getting more carries in this offense is to keep the offense on the field longer, so this week there's a lot of emphasis on being successful on first and second down so that the third downs we do encounter are short yardage situations.
As important as our TEs are, it's never good news when we're actually short on bodies at the position during practice. There is hope that Cook will be able to play Sunday, but Bo is almost certainly out of the mix for a few weeks.
Chris Johnson has his own T-Shirts available [ed. note: maybe someone can more clearly explain his whole 'I have no home' thing to me. I've been just going with it, but it's a little confusing.], and you can get pics of them via his Twitter page. The plan is to have them in local stores and on his website very soon.
Could this be the game where we see a little of the (good) Kerry of old?
Clearly making a shift away from their prior emphasis on getting smart players who make good decisions, the Colts have signed Hank Baskett. Baskett is probably best known as the guy who married Hugh Hefner's seconds, since nobody really noticed his lackluster career with the Eagles. Sounds just like a Dungy guy doesn't it?
