Indystar Colts Insider: Jets stay on ground, run all over Indy defense

It was an ugly game, but it's time for some links anyway.

Mike Chappell, in his Colts Insider column for The Indianapolis Star, says the Colts had hoped to make the Jets one-dimensional by stopping the run and force the erattic Mark Sanchez to try to beat them.  They just couldn't:

"We wanted to put the game in his hands and hopefully get him to make some mistakes," safety Antoine Bethea said. "Them doing a great job of running the ball, he didn't have to make too many plays throwing the ball."  

From the couch, it looked like the Colts had no such game plan.  I don't know if it's refreshing to know that was, in fact, what they were trying to do; or worrisome knowing that it's exactly what they tried, and failed, to do.  I'll go with refreshing.  Here's hoping they get things straightened out and take out their frustration on the Browns next week.
