After watching the defending champs go at it against the Saints. The Colt's defense is filled with new guys but, they only allowed 10pts in the game overall. On the scale from 1 to 10, what would you rate the Colt's defense so far?
very good week one wait till week 6 and you can juidge this group and all teams.
i would give the colts defense a 9
8 so far. They do well when Sanders is healthy. They also get a lot of rest because the offense keeps them off of the field a lot.
So far, a 10 (or at least a 9.9). They held the 2006 #1 offense to 3 points. That's pretty much perfection.
They played a great game, a 9.5 for the effort. We will see how they do against the AFC power...
Although it's earlty in the season i'll give it a 8 1/2
Their D was ok. It looked like the Saints offense played poorly on their own, not because of what the Colts did. At any rate, they should have a good year again. I say a 6
So far a 9...But realistically they are 7-8.
I know we lost Cato June which was a blow but Nick Harper and Jason David...I am not so worried about. Marlin Jackson is awesome. Kelvin Hayden is coming up and KEY: BOB SANDERS! He is one of the most talented safties out there (my opinion) and am surprised he doesn't get more credit. His skill and the energy he brings to the team/crowd is great. Also, can't overlook Freeny :)
6/10 They lost Cato June and their 2 best cornerbacks. Its only a matter of time before Bob Sanders gets injured...again.
Based strictly on their performance last night, I think they were a solid 9 (10's do not exist because perfection does not exist outside of our imagination). There is definitely room for improvement and I would like to see them play consistently at this level. Let's answer the question again after week 6 or 7 (before they play New England because lately they've consistently stepped it up several notches) and see if they are still playing up to this level. Either way, it was an exciting game last night and a lot of that excitement was generated from a defense that had good chemistry and played together like the TEAM they are.
Last night was a 7.
i will say 6.still need more adjusments.
