Whats up with all these teams playing panzy ball and running shotgun 95% of the time? The Pats do it and now im watching the Colts do the same panzy crap. Whats up with this?

The Colts use the shotgun more than any other team. It's been that way since Peyton's third year or so.

Because the Colts can't run the ball.

Wish we can look unstoppable like Manning looks tonight. They're doing it even more this year because they absolutely have no running game. They'd be scary if they figured out how to mix in the run. Of course their D can't stop the run either so I don't see them going real far in the playoffs if that trend continues.

They won a Super Bowl doing the same thing they are doing this year. Shoot as long as Indy keeps outscoring opponents they will continue to win. They only have won there 7 games.

Is that you, John Madden? Seriously though, I agree. The Colts are one of the few times out there that can win without a prominent running game. Watch out for them in the playoffs.

I wish the Dolphins would go to the shotgun on 3rd and long.

Addai's a decent running back just having a down year. I don't get why 3rd and 1 and 3rd and 2 have become passing downs for some teams. The Giants do run out of the shotgun.

As for the Colts running shotgun. It plays to their strength which is Manning. Same thing the Pats did last year with Brady. Denver IMO will be the worst AFC team to make the playoffs. I'd like to say that Indy would have trouble if the weather is horrible. Though Denver can't stop anybody.

Indy wins 11-12 games every year and are in the playoffs. So I can't really argue against Tom Moore's offense.

The Shotgun is no more pansy than any other formation. What is the difference in takeing a 5-7 step drop, and, being back there already? Some OC's like the Shotgun, some don't. Simple as that.
