Gosh dang it, Donald.  We're sorry.  1742 career rushing yards (mostly as a backup) with a 4.2 average ypc, a vast majority of those yards coming after contact, and the hard-charging Donald Brown still gets a bad rap. (Bear with me, the link is coming) Michael Marot of the Associated Press did a story on Donald Brown's resurgence, which many believe is thanks in part to a scheme that fits him better and improved run blocking from the offensive line. Marot also includes a quote from Bruce Arians I now wish I'd included in the Colts Notebook: "I liked Donald coming out (of college)," said interim coach and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who was with Pittsburgh then. "I thought he was a hard downhill runner with great speed. He has shown flashes of that speed for us and I love speed. He is more than a professional, he's a top-notch pro. He's more than prepared every week. He prepares the young guys. He's a great leader in his room and he's an explosive player and you can't have enough of those." Yes, as Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator, Arians had his eye on the tough, speedy rookie from Connecticut.  The Dolphins will be a tough match-up for any running back, and the Colts' offensive line has still had some bad days at the office.  But with Brown and their two power backs, the Colts have the depth at the position to be competitive on the ground on Sunday.      @MarcusDugan
