What We Learned from Today's Colts Victory Over the Titans

1. Today's game matched two pretty mediocre-looking teams against each other. For most of the game, the Colts offense looked not just mediocre but poor (and that includes Andrew Luck, who was taking sacks when he should have been getting rid of the ball).

2. Darrius Heyward-Bey still hasn't learned how to catch a pass (and probably never will). He was a bad free-agent signing.

3. Because Heyward-Bey is so bad (and no one's scared of LaVon Brazil, who dropped the first pass of the game), it's too easy for opponents' defenses to take T.Y. Hilton out of the game. I think he had maybe one catch today, and Luck hardly even tried to get him the ball.

4. The Colts finally made the right move starting Donald Brown over Trent Richardson. For most of the game, it didn't seem to make much difference, but it sure did on the final, long drive of the game.

5. From week to week it is becoming increasingly evident that Trent Richardson is a bust; the Colts made a bad mistake trading a first-round draft pick for him. When he gets the ball, he's slow and indecisive. Either of those qualities alone is virtually fatal for running backs in the NFL.

6. Adam Vinatieri still has it (in case anyone doubted the fact).
