Tecmo Colts

Colts-Saints Box Score (Sports Illustrated)

The Colts are like a Tecmo Super Bowl team. Manning’s accuracy on deep passes is so incredible it seems as simple as selecting his receiver and pushing a button; his timing with Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison is phenomenal. Wayne and Harrison sometimes appear as open as a Tecmo receiver, a game in which defenders leave receivers literally uncovered. Joseph Addai is the Tecmo running back that gets 100 yards by default just because you’d get bored throwing the ball every play. And at least tonight, Drew Brees looked like the computer-controlled opposing QB: flustered, inaccurate, throwing into coverage, an all-around mess.

It's pretty much a requirement to have Indianapolis offensive stars on your fantasy team if you want to win your league. Peyton Manning, Joseph Addai, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, and Adam Vinatieri are all superb fantasy performers (and all were productive tonight). And the Colts are going to be on TV a lot, so you get the thrill of watching your fantasy performers thrive.

It's just a joy to watch Manning connect on those perfectly timed, perfectly accurate deep passes. And people are also going to be talking about the strong performance of the Indianapolis defense. This Indianapolis team that always wins 12 games looks strong once again.
