ON MATHIS: 'He's the best all time'

WHALEN: Fresh off practice squad, Stanford product impresses
We'll see what happens next, but it wouldn't hurt anybody's feelings if Samson Satele doesn't get his job back any time soon. (And the same with Darrius Heyward Bey, who rarely saw the field and was forced to be the gunner on special teams when Sergio Brown went down with an injury.)
Colts can look in a mirror and like what they see for first time in six weeks
All week long, the Colts, who had lost three of their previous five games while stepping through the side door on the way to the playoffs, talked about lighting a match, producing some heat in the weeks leading up to the postseason. Mission accomplished in a 25 3 pleasure cruise over the hapless Houston Texans, who did everything but bring their golf clubs to Lucas Oil Stadium.
They've been under the gun the last two months, and for very good reason. In the last seven weeks, they've averaged allowed 31.1 points per game, which isn't going to win games anywhere, anytime. Sunday, they wrecked the game for Case Keenum and interim head coach Wade Phillips. Butler had his two picks. Vontae Davis, who dealt most of the time with Andre Johnson (4 catches, 18 yards on Omega Seamaster Gmt Rose Gold 10 targets), had his best game in weeks. And the pass rush was relentless, sacking Keenum four times and pressuring him on countless other occasions.
The Colts offensive coordinator did something Omega Orange Strap Watch
we've all been pining for the last few weeks: He spread things out, went shot gun, went to the no huddle early, and the Colts moved up and down the field with relative alacrity. After 37 first half possessions without a touchdown over six games, the Colts scored a TD on their first drive and were 5 for 5 on third down conversions to open the afternoon.
How about the entire defense, most notably Mathis?
"Maybe years from now I'll be able to tell my grandkids that I played with Robert Mathis," Luck said.
How about Griff Whalen?
PHIL B.: Colts get what they need from win
Earlier this week, he was on the practice squad. Sunday, he was catching his first touchdown pass. Of course, it may come at a cost, as it always does with Colts receivers these days; he's scheduled to get an MRI Monday.
Mathis is your Defensive Player of the Year. Period.
How about Xavier Nixon?

win in a very long time. The game balls went to Darius Butler (two interceptions) and the great Robert Mathis (his fourth quarter sack set the franchise season and career records), but it could have gone to any number of other Colts.
"I think we started a little fire," safety Antoine Bethea said. "We needed a game like this. This was huge for us. After not playing consistently for a while, we needed something like this. We knew we needed to get hot heading into the playoffs."
When guard Joe Reitz left the game with a concussion, Nixon stepped in and played passably well. This is a guy who is normally a tackle, never played guard in college or the pros, and got very few reps at guard during the week. (Tells you what they think of draftee Khaled Holmes, who can't find the field with a GPS.)

How about Pep Hamilton?
For the first time in a month and a half, the Colts can look in the mirror and truly like what they see. This was their first start to finish team Omega Watch Brown Leather Strap
How about Mike McGlynn? Twice this year, he's started at center. Both times (at San Francisco and against Houston), the Colts not only ran the ball well but protected Andrew Luck better than they normally do. I asked Chuck Pagano after the game, "Do you have any inclination to keep McGlynn at center?" He tap danced around the question. Then I mentioned it again as he walked off the podium, telling him, "All I know is, when McGlynn's at center, good things happen." He gritted his teeth, managed a wry smile and walked off without saying a thing.
