QB Peyton Manning took full responsibility for the late fourth-quarter interception that ended the Colts' comeback bid against the Patriots in Week 11. But it wasn't the first time this season that Manning had appeared to be not on the same page with WR Pierre Garcon. Many league observers felt Garcon was poised for stardom this season, but the third-year wideout, who has had a golden opportunity to take the next step with so many injuries impacting the offense, has regressed. Only Bengals WR Terrell Owens has more drops, and Garcon has disappeared for long stretches in games. We hear that his struggles could be a result of not putting in as much time with Manning during the offseason as other young Colts receivers did. While there is still time this season to turn it around, 2011 will be crucial for Garcon, as the third full season in the Colts' offense is when it all clicked for teammate Reggie Wayne.
