How many freaking play-action passes at the goal line are the Colts going to have to run before people stop saying "the defense was expecting a run"?
Let me tell you something, if you are an opposing coach, and the Colts are on your 5 yard line, and you are "expecting a run," you are an idiot. If the coaching staff or your statisticians haven't brought you the numbers to show you that Indy scores on a passing touchdown 85% of the time in those situations, you should be fired and you and Dave Wannstedt should get together and trim his mustache on Sundays instead of coaching in the NFL.
The defense is not "expecting a run" from the Colts on the goal line. That is just another myth concocted by Peyton Manning fans to justify his selfish, racist quarterbacking. I would think that by the third goal-line situation, even the Texans coach would have been playing a pass defense.
