The Colts' coaching staff has been happy with the improvement of rookie Anthony Gonzalez's play in each game. On Saturday, Gonzalez had a pair of receptions, but one resulted in a fumble. The reaction to the fumble was most severe from Gonzalez himself because for him, fumbling is not the norm. Gonzalez is projected to start as Indy's new slot receiver, are the fumbles likely to continue? Gonzalez's track record seems to suggest otherwise.

Thus far in the preseason the Colts' defense has put together a strong performance. The most noticeable difference has come in the team's ability to continue to stop the run - a task the defense had much difficulty with until the play-offs last year.
