Ask-A-Colts Fan II

This Monday night the Colts (4-2) and the Texans (4-2) square off for the second time this season in an all-out battle for first, second and third place in the AFC South, close on the heels of the #1 ranked Tennessee Titans (5-2). In case you haven't been keeping up on current events it's been a real slug-fest in the division this season and both teams are looking to move on up towards first place and that all-important playoff berth. The AFC South teams lead the league with only 10 total losses so far this season between them, so in other words:

♫ There's gonna' be a showdown... ♫

Now, the last time the Colts and the Texans met up it was seven weeks ago for the 2010 season opener and it didn't turn out so great for us Colts fans. In fact, Arian Foster pretty much rode us hard and put us away wet (God, I love that saying) and we've been chugging bleach like it was cheap whiskey ever since. This Monday, though, we hope to keep Arian Foster's riding crop out of our asses and have our revenge right in our own backyard at Lucas Oil Stadium. In seasons past this would have been a veritable "wham bam thank you ma'am" for the Colts, but if my "sourcez" are right the Texans are planning to slip in the back door and steal away the Colts virginal record at the Lube this season...


I, a Colts fan, am providing this thread as a place where you can get to know your enemy a little better. The strengths, weaknesses, team health and all-around insight into the Colts that only a pack of football-obsessed nerds like us may be able to provide.

The previous version of this post went rather well earlier this season, in fact, so far this season, the Troll-A-Colts Fan and the Ask-A-Colts Fan posts we've had at Battle Red Blog have not been topped by any other team since. In the hopes of that being the case again, here's a few (unneeded, I'm sure) reminders:

  1. I will be establishing a second thread this season entitled Troll-A-Colts Fan to work as a sister-thread to this one. It will be a place where you can go and bash Peighton Menning and his big-headed mama to your heart's content.
  2. Please try to keep the questions and answers football related. Example of a football question: How do you think the loss of Dallas Clark will affect your offense Monday? Example of not a football question: Heard you guys lost Dallas Clark for the season. You gonna' cry, baby? GO ON! CRY BABY! CRY!
  3. No attacks please. Let's try to keep this thread civil. Please don't personally attack posters, teams or players. There's a whole other thread for that. If you feel yourself starting to grow angry enough that you feel you have to vent, go to the other thread and scream, "F#$@K THE COLTS DIEDIEDIEDIEDIE!@!!!!!!!!!!!@!11!" all you want. I encourage it and will probably have more posts on that thread than anyone else.
  4. I have no power here. I can't shut down this thread or delete comments, and if I did have that power I wouldn't care to use it. It's not my place to take people to task on this site, for that I look to the other members of this community. It's your job to let others know when they cross the line.

I hope all of your questions get answered to your satisfaction, and may the best team win.

Thank You For Your Hospitality,
