08:05 AM ET 10.10 | Fans in Indy need long memories to remember a five-game losing streak, which is where the Colts wake up today. [In addition to poor run defense], there was the pass defense. Matt Cassel started looking like his 2010-form that produced 27 touchdowns and led the Chiefs to a division title. He went 21-of-29 for 257 yards and four touchdowns, along with a 138.9 rating. ... A quote from Bill Polian on the post-game radio show says it all for the state of the Indianapolis Colts franchise at this point in the season. "I'm baffled. Truthfully, it's hard to envision with the kind of people we have up front that we can be this porous in the secondary. It's a dilemma honestly."

No one believes this for a second. Everyone knows that Indy is in the "Luck" sweepstakes.

Peyton was the glue that held that team together.

It is a dilemma, but at least it's a "Lucky" dilemma.

Lost to the damn Chiefs...

Good luck finding another opportunity this easy, Polian!

Again, the Chiefs exploit a team with a losing record. When they say "Matt Cassel starting to look like his 2010 form," that's what they mean. In 2010 they beat up on crud teams but lost to the good ones, then went one-and-done after winning their weak division. Looks like the same formula, except the Raiders are stronger and San Diego is doing OK, too.

Exactly... Not to say they are throwing games or anything, but yea there is a bright side to the losses.

Saying the best years were wasted is a little extreme IMO... Peyton had a great HOF career, and the Colts gave him the tools he needed to be great.

The Colts are the only team in the league that has a valid excuse to be as bad as they are.

October 10, 2011  08:58 AM ET

It truly is mind boggling to think that one man made such a difference here.

October 10, 2011  09:01 AM ET

Baffled? You let your ship run aground.

October 10, 2011  09:23 AM ET

Indy's defense has never been very good. Painter has looked pretty good the last couple of games and has shown that he can run the offense. Too many droped passes yesterday and and the D needs to step it up.

Hello. If Peyton doesn't don his helmet again, the Colts are screwed royally.

October 10, 2011  09:43 AM ET

Indy defense was suspect to begin with but it doesn't helpwhen they are on the field 75% of the game.

Even the defense, it would seem. Go figure.
