    Peyton Manning runs the offense, calls the plays etc.

    Tony Dungy is a defensive specialist and the Colts would be better off keeping the defense off the field.

    So what does Dungy do to get paid?

    Tom Moore runs the offense, and gives Peyton several options...a run or a pass...or he can check out of it. A head coach does what all head coaches do, keeps things organized and oversees the direction of the team.

    Dungy gets paid to keep his mouth shut and do what Peyton says.

    LOL!!! Hey, he better....You saw what happened to Mora when he was critical of Manning throwing 4ints that game. Mora got the boot.

    TNT is right, Moore, not Peyton, runs that offense. He designed it back in Detroit, and it's been pretty much his baby since.

    Dungy is a facilitator, communicator, organizer, and deligator. He doesn't call the plays on Offense or on Defense.

    Meeks is the D-coordinator, although he is running the Tampa-2 that Dungy kind of created with Herm Edwards and a few others with the Bucs. It's not been pretty, admittedly. Many want Meeks' head on a platter, but Dungy will resign before he fires one of his own, IMHO.

    Bullack, or whoever said it is right. The Colts have the same problems they've always had...poor D, occasionally vanishing offense, no ability to get the short, tough yards.

    another story is Addai not doing much in this game. He is Mr outside and the outside is not where you run in the playoffs............SD and the Ravens will destroy them if they try it. The Colts must throw to get a lead and then their D is a perfect design.............if they get down that D is nothing to beat.............the team is all based upon the O.............and great O's rarely win SB unless they are flanked by a very good D

    Addai only got 59 against us, and never hurt us with the stretch play. Swartz had the run game stuffed pretty well.

    IT didn't feel that way though. I thought both Addai and Rhodes were tearing us apart at will. As I posted before I was shocked they were held under 4 ypc.

    They only had a total of 100 yards rushing, and 10 of that may have been Peyton's run. Pretty good day overall. No one has mentioned it, but how many false start penalties did they have? That tells me we were beating them at the line of scrimmage when linemen get twitchy.
