How similar are the '05 Colts to the '99 Rams?


Recommended Posts

The Colts are better. Their team speed on defense is alarming. The Rams D in '99 was decent, but they didn't have as many playmakers as the Colts.

The passing games are about the same. The Rams may be better because it was so revolutionary at the time.

The Colts advantage on offense is that they can go smash-mouth at a moment's notice. Faulk is probably a better overall back than James. But James can punish you.

What I like about the Colts is they've shown they can beat you any way you want. They can pound the ball (which Edge is better than Faulk at). They can outscore you. They can shut you down. They can milk the clock EVEN if you take away the run...

I agree. It's a classic case of pick your poison.
