It was interesting to see the surprising lack of Anthony Gonzalez last night given that I had heard that Manning was feeding him the ball a lot in practice. In light of that, check out this nice piece off of ESPN about AG:
I’m starting to adjust my expectation for him downward. Maybe it’s the lack of Tarik Glenn, necessitating more 2 TE sets, or just the desire to hide what the O will really be, but I sort of expected to see more of him.
Scouts Inc. blogger Marwan Maalouf also commented about weak play from the Indy special teams. Now, we’ll address this more in our podcast this week, but honestly, are you really that surprised? The special teams were horrible (Smith and Vinatieri excluded) most of last year anyway, so I’m not jumping off of any bridges over this one.
