Larry Coyer never really improved the Colts defense according to Kyle Rodriguez: Obviously, there’s a steady decline since Coyer has taken over the reigns at defensive coordinator, and it didn’t just coincide with the injuries in 2010 and a “lack of talent.” The 2009 squad arguably had a better squad than the 2008 one, with Dan Muir and Antonio Johnson replacing Keyunta Dawson and a rookie Eric Foster at defensive tackle, Clint Session improving, and Jerraud Powers replacing Tim Jennings as starting cornerback.

Bill Belichick on the Colts without Peyton Manning: ”There’s plenty of guys I wish we had out on the field this Sunday.”

Bill Belichick isn’t shedding any tears over a Colts showdown without Peyton Manning. That’s just how it goes.
