Packers’ Super Bowl run doesn’t rest on QB

~The Packers’ third preseason game was only 22 seconds old, yet they already trailed Indianapolis by a touchdown.

On the Colts’ first play from scrimmage Thursday night, running back Joseph Addai took a handoff from Peyton Manning, stepped left, then patiently waited for a hole to open, like a man expecting an elevator. When Addai saw a gap, he zipped through it unimpeded. 

Linebacker Nick Barnett and the Packers had a hard time keeping up with Joseph Addai's Colts in the first quarter on Thursday.

 He was finally shoved out of bounds at the Green Bay 18. If the Packers and Colts had been playing two-hand touch, Addai would have still had a 49-yard gain.

Manning then hurried his team to the line without a huddle, took a quick snap in shotgun, looked off the defense to the left, then connected with Pierre Garcon, who was alone in the end zone on the right. Garcon had darted straight through zone coverage, then found the ball waiting for him. Simple, really. Two plays, 67 yards, six points, 22 seconds elapsed.         Full stoy here
