Colts Authority Daily Links
Evan Hilbert of CBSSports.com has a nice preview for this week's matchup against Green Bay. This week, like many prognosticators, he is predicting a Packers victory and notes that the Colts' defense is banged up, and, well Aaron Rodgers. The Colts also need to stop Cedric Benson:
The Colts' defense has been suspect against the run, at best, and Cedric Benson has given Green Bay a solid option out of the backfield.
If you're like me, that looks pretty legitimate. But what a many people don't realize is that Benson and Donald Brown are both averaging 3.6 yards per carry this season, with Benson getting more carries and Brown having a slightly better career average. Most of us tend to call a guy like Benson "solid" or "decent" for doing virtually the same thing as Brown, albeit for a winning team, which, I believe, does make a difference. But enough of my two cents worth, scroll back up and check out Hilbert's game preview, and get ready for some football.
