This has always been my concern, since we brought Meeks in.

His D worked great in Indy, because of the fast strike abilities of their O. Ours is not the same, at least has not been in the past.

"Fox Ball" has always been run the rock, and stop the run. We seem to be leaning to Run the rock, and stop the pass. And while that makes sense in todays NFL, I am still a little nervous about our run D.

Meeks also led Indy to the leagues worst run defense...

Jackson should not be on this list.

the same bob sanderless defense that when he returned from his injury became the top defense in the playoffs and won the superbowl?

sanders's health determined indy's ability to stop the run.

an argument can be made that a single player can't completely affect a defense...if that isn't the case, then why are people worried about the panthers' pass rush?

I don't understand. John Fox is about run the rock and stop the rock from being ran. Then he brings in Meeks which is last in run Defense.

Congratulations, the top defense for 4 games means so much. Especially looking at the teams they played, the only offense worth a damn was the Pats and they dropped 34 on them. The Chiefs were a one man offense, the Ravens had an aging McNair and Lewis and the only players worth a damn were an aging Mason and Todd Heap and the Bears had Rex Grossman as their QB.

A lot to be proud of there.

the point being, indy's inability to stop the run isn't a result of meeks's system.

indy's run defense sucked long before meeks got there. the colts haven't had a decent run defense since 1995.

it wasn't good before he got there, and it hasn't improved since he left.

...and something else to point out. fox might emphasis stopping the run, but since he's been head coach, carolina has had a top 10 run defense only twice.

they've had 5 top 10 pass defenses, 3 of those being top 5.
