"Just inconsistent. (We are) up and down. We've got to stop that. We've got to be a more consistent team. We've got to be the team that we have shown and that we can be," tight end Dallas Clark said.
"We've got to keep doing our job. Everybody's got to take it upon themselves to improve that. We can't take weeks off. We can't look good one week and then come back and look mediocre. It's our job. We've got to come back every week and keep improving."
With a team that has such an experienced veteran base, there is no panic within the squad. There is concern however.
"We have the players. We have the plays. We just have to go back and minimize our mistakes," running back Joseph Addai pointed out.
The Colts' problems have come on both sides of the ball. Mental and physical errors continue to crop up. Indianapolis had two key turnovers deep in Jaguars' territory on Sunday.
No pass rush the last two weeks. The running game, as well as the run defense, has been inconsistent at best.
"One of the things that we've been experiencing in just so much inconsistency," coach Jim Caldwell said.
"Typically we've been able to put back-to-back quarters together where we've played extremely well and string them along for game-after-game-after game. But we've been rather sporadic. Maybe one side of the ball is clicking and the other side is not. We know where we are after the first quarter (of the season). We're a .500 team. I don't believe that's who we are."
