On tonight's episode, Kyle, Rohan and Greg take a look back at the Colts 27-7 domination of the San Francisco 49ers. Where did THAT come from? Who had the day's best performances? And who is still Erik Walden?
After the breakdown, we turn our attention to Sunday's key match-up against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts need a win to move to 3-1. What are the keys to the game? Who needs to step up? And who is still Erik Walden?

Well I don't know about you, but I'm still in shock.
Having seen Donald Thomas and Dwayne Allen placed on IR, a disappointing loss to the Dolphins and a blockbuster trade for running back Trent Richardson, there was a mood of negativity surrounding the Colts as they headed to San Francisco, looking to defeat the vaunted 49ers. Much to everyone's surprise, the Colts completely suffocated Jim Harbaugh's team and came away with a stunning 27-7 victory.
The optimism around the fanbase now stretches to the rookies, with a couple of encouraging displays..no comments

Week 3 in the NFL was just as tumultuous as the second week. Teams expected to play well did not and vice versa, the Jaguars aside. The Texans flopped against the defending champion Ravens when they were expected to put up a fight. The Titans got a shockingly good performance from the usually pedestrian Jake Locker. The Colts upset the 49ers by punching Harbaugh's sluggers in the mouth. At least the Jaguars delivered the goods by just plain stinking as expected.no comments
Given the Colts dominant 27-7 victory over the 49ers, what I'm about to say may shock some people: Sunday's showdown with the 0-3 Jaguars is a must win game for the Indianapolis Colts.
No, I'm not trolling. I'm not trying to get a rise out of you with a controversial statement. The truth is, over the next 4 weeks the Colts play @ Jaguars, vs Seahawks, @ Chargers, vs Broncos. Three really tough games, and the Jaguars. This is the type of game that a playoff team doesn't lose. You only get so many opportunities to play the worst team in the NFL, you cannot afford to waste them.
So yes, the win over San Francisco was amazing. It was the best start-to-finish performance in the Chuck Pagano era. But if the Colts lose on Sunday, it will have meant nothing. And with that happy opener, let's break it down!no comments
