Three And Out: Useless Predictions For Sunday's Game

Today is sort of a special edition of "Three and Out," what with the worldwide leader giving The Schaub featured story status and the pundits now readily acknowledging that he might just be "a step up" from Zoolander.  What do they think?  That we're just going to forget the past year and a half of jokes about Super Mario?  The past five (5) years of jokes about the offensive line?  Do they really think we're that easy?  I'm not, and I bet you that Kubes isn't either.  I think it's pretty much a certainty that he's pumping the team full of "no one thinks we can win this without 'Dre" talk this week, playing the underdog card to the hilt.  Will it work?  We'll find out on Sunday.  Without further ado, three (3) things that I think will happen on Sunday:

  1.  Jacoby Jones is going to score a TD.  I said it last week, but I really mean it this week.  And I'll do you one better--I'm going to call that it happens while he's out there subbing for 'Dre at WR.
  2.  The exceptional run defense will continue, as Joseph Addai will be stymied.  Well, as stymied as he can be.  Let's put that at less than 70 yards rushing for the Colts' stud RB.
  3.  Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison is going to have a BIG day.  I think Dunta will limit one of them to a very average to below average outing, but that necessarily means that Petey Faggins will be covering the other one.  In the absence of nearly constant safety help, that match-up could get ugly.  Like, over 100 yards receving and a TD ugly.
PUT YOUR NAME ON IT:  This one is going to be closer than a lot of people (read:  Vegas) are saying.  I called this one a loss when the schedules came out, and I'm going to stick with that prediction--barely.  Indy 24, Houston 20.
