Started Big Ben over Schaub, which instantly means Schaub will throw for about 4 TD's.

AJ had such an easy TD but ended up lucky to even get a big catch with Schaub throwing another bad bass.

Is it just me or is Foster not the same RB he was a year or two ago?

Uhh yea, I thought the Texans had a sick O-Line. If that's the case, that would make Arian Foster...um...awful?

If it wasn't for the TD's, I think he would be a bust.

Andre Johnson looks like the Andre Johnson of old. 4/74 TD in the 1st quarter. Nice for his owners.

I was thinking the same thing watching him run today. Doesn't even attempt to create. Hits the nearest hole whether it's massive or nonexistent and goes down immediately. It could be faulty playcalling because Arian has never been a down-the-middle bruiser and finds most success in slants and screen passes. I haven't seem them run a single slant for Arian so far and also noticed a few times where he was glaringly open to take it for at least 20 on a dump off.

Either way, I'm disappointed when I watch him.

He's just not the same player. Whether it's the play calling or maybe he is just wearing down, I have no clue. His yards per carry is down, and those TD's are really saving him right now.

So does Luck survive this game. Appears to be getting knocked around pretty good so far.

Luck, can you throw to Wayne a lot?

PPR, so I will be happy if he gets about 8 for 80, a touchdown would just be a bonus.

Dang, I feel bad for Mewelde Moore.....I was just about to post that he must be a really good teammate to keep getting shots from teams around the league. I've always known him to be a good consistent 3rd down back.

Then he goes and fumbles on the goal line.

Anyone know why Ballard was out that entire drive though? Hurt? Pissed off the coach and benched? Ugh... I knew it was risky starting him today, but why was Moore suddenly thrown into the feature role for an entire drive and given first crack at goal line?

This is some epically bad play calling. Is this normal for Indy? I haven't been able to see much of them?
