The blue stars are lining up

David Garrard will not be playing next week against the Texans, so that means even more good news for Peyton Manning and the Colts.

Garrard injured his finger during the Colts vs. Jaguars game, hitting it against either Dwight Freeney or Robert Mathis' helmet. His finger didn't seem too bad during that game and Garrard still played against the Redskins last week. However, he will be getting surgery on it this Thursday.

If the Jaguars lose (more likely now that their starting quarterback is out), the Colts will make the playoffs even if they lose to the Titans (though this is less likely to happen). Manning and the Colts will probably try to win out so they at least have a chance of securing the third seed if the Kansas City Chiefs lose to the Oakland Raiders

I'm never pleased to hear about any injuries, but I'm relieved that the injury didn't happen to another Colt (*knock on wood*). Manning is going to need all the weapons he can get, on all sides of the ball to make a playoff/Super Bowl push!

We survived the Black Hole last week and now need to destroy the Titans. And if the Texans can hang on long enough before shooting themselves in the foot, then that's just extra icing on top.
Thrusters on full.
