Colts Buzz: 9/21

The Colts' offensive line has been busy learning from last week's mishaps, will they be back to their old selves this week? ... Texans feeding off of confidence from last season's victory ... homecoming for Addai, but "it's still a business trip."

After giving up a surprising two sacks and seven quarterback hits last weekend, the Indianapolis offensive line is looking to redeem itself. Head coach Tony Dungy said in reference to last week's numbers, "that doesn't happen very often and to our guys, to their credit, that's not acceptable...that's a good thing." The line has another tough match-up this week as they take on Mario Williams and Amobi Okoye. Can the the line redeem itself? Find out how the team is feeling about the Texans' D-line in this feature!

This weekend's match-up promises to be interesting if both teams play as they have thus far. With both teams missing a few key players, strategies had to be adjusted on both sides of the ball. Despite losing their leading receiver Andre Johnson, Houston is feeding off of their motivation from last year's Christmas Eve upset, the last time the Colts lost a game.

The Colts are built for speed on both sides of the ball. Speedy running backs and receivers, defensive backs that fly to the ball, and not to mention two starting defensive ends that ran the 40-yard dash at sub-4.5 times give the Colts the speed they need in all areas, but which Colt is the fastest? If you want to see a controversy erupt in the locker room, ask that very question and see what happens. "Every guy thinks he's the fastest...I know Bob (Sanders) thinks he's the fastest. Some people think Matt (Giordano)'s the fastest. We just don't know. Nobody's willing to give it up," says cornerback/kick returner T.J. Rushing.

For Joseph Addai, this weekend's trip to Houston to play the Texans will also be a trip home. When you keep such a busy schedule, it could be easy to be distracted by thoughts of getting to see your family and friends and push football to the side, but for Addai that's not an issue. "It's still a business trip - just like the Super Bowl," he says, so what are his plans for staying focused? What does this game mean to him? Find out by clicking here!
