No more “next man”

The defense is riddled with holes which means that the “next man up” philosophy has found a limit:  there are no more “next men.”

“The next man went down,” Mathis said. “You can’t do (anything) but keep fighting. This is football and this is what you signed up for.”

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
