The Colts have major problems all over the place
As do we.
#Vikings, who play at Indianapolis on Sunday, have never beaten the Colts on the road, having gone 0-11. They are 0-3 in Indianapolis after having gone 0-8 in Baltimore, where the Colts played until moving to Indy in 1984. Minnesota's last visit to Indy was in 2012, a 23-20 loss,
The only caveat is that Rivers is 1-3 against us. However, if we lack a pass rush and continue to play a soft cover 2 even Rivers can pick us apart. Colts have an excellent oline.
Zim always goes on and on about proper technique nuances with the db's, but he never just puts the them in a position to check receivers at the los. Disrupt the guy before he gets into his route. It doesn't seem too hard, but he's the cb whisperer, so I'm probably wrong.
I think Zim has a hard time tweaking his system to fit his players skills. That is why rookies rarely play in his system.....they have to re-learn how to do things the Zim way or else.
Problem is, it's a team game.
