Quote of the Week nominee

I was just watching the TiVo version of the Colts-Jaguars game. Marshall Faulk provided a nugget in this broadcast that's worth passing along.
Jacksonville took a 14-0 lead in this game before eventually losing 31-24, with Peyton Manning passing for 364 yards and 3 TDs.
"Once he got into a rhythm, there was nothing that Jacksonville could do about it," Faulk said. "That's what you don't want to do. Basically, you don't want to get the lead and afford for them to have to throw the ball, because if they do, they'll get in a rhythm and you're in trouble."
So what strategy should a team hoping to beat the Colts use? Perhaps intentionally fall behind in the first half? Fumble the ball at the goal line rather than score?
Emmitt Smith gets a lot of pub as the worst former star currently on TV -- and deservedly so -- but he's got plenty of company.
