Breakin It Down: Indianapolis Colts at San Diego Chargers

Friday, January 02, 2009

Breakin it down is 5 key stories plus a pick for each postseason game this season.

How's the Groin?

LDT has sat out two straight days of practice which means he probably won't be 100% come game time tomorrow night. If he goes down at any point little Darren Sproles will have to pick up the bulk of the duties. He's a quick back and provides a bunch of speed, but he really is limited in the pounding category.

How's the Ankle?

Meanwhile Antonio Gates has been out for 2 straight practices as well and is questionable for the game tomorrow night. One has to assume that no matter what he suits up but if he's not effective than it leaves a massive hole in the Chargers game plan.

The Manning Face

The Manning face comes out at least once in this game right? Whether it be via a turnover or due to his defense being unable to stop anyone. The Manning face will be seen at least once.

Norv Turner is an Awful Coach

At any moment it is possible for Norv Turner to do something so ridiculously stupid that he costs his team the game. The fact that the Chargers only won 8 games this year is really a testament to just how bad he is at coaching a football team.

Revenge Sweet Revenge

One year ago it was the Chargers heading to Indy for a playoff game. The Chargers shocked the Colts and set their tee times for the next day. Will this be revenge for the Colts? Remember the last time the Colts had to play in the first round they won the Superbowl.

The Pick

I know it's a bit ridiculous to pick all the road warriors in the first round of the playoffs but I'm doing it. This game is the biggest toss up to me, but with LDT and Gates banged up it would seem to lean in the favor of the Mannings.
