Posted October 15, 2012 on AP on Fox
Monday's film session isn't changing the opinion of Colts interim coach Bruce Arians. He still saw all those mistakes in full, vivid detail - the missed tackles, the missed blocks, the turnovers and the decision to try and do too much too fast. So one day after yielding 252 yards rushing and 35 points to a New York Jets offense that had scored only 17 points in the previous eight quarters, Arians tried to use the blowout loss as yet another lesson about what the Colts (2-3) can expect to see in future games - a steady diet of the ground game. Why? Maurice Jones-Drew and Shonn Greene have each topped 150 yards this season, and Arians wants that corrected before Cleveland comes to town Sunday.
