INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano has seen enough of the defensive woes.The big plays, the missed tackles, the ridiculous penalties all need to stop -- right now.If that message didnt get through before last weekends loss, Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson made it abundantly clear this week when they cut two starters: cornerback Antonio Cromartie and inside linebacker Sio Moore, the teams leading tackler.I know this, when those guys trot out there and theyve got that horseshoe on their helmet, theres an expectation. I dont care who it is, that expectation has to be met, first-year defensive coordinator Ted Monachino said Thursday. Either they meet expectations, exceed expectations or they dont meet expectations. That is as crystal clear as it can be.So far, the Colts (1-3) have not lived up to those standards.They head into Sundays game against Chicago (1-3) allowing 31.3 points per game, have struggled to get off the field, and when they do make a play there always seems to be a hit out of bounds or a late hit on the quarterback.Everyone in the organization understands mistakes happen, but the litany of early-season miscues has become untenable.Following Sundays loss to previously winless Jacksonville, quarterback Andrew Luck used his platform to make a rare public critique. Luck, who was limited in Thursdays practice with a sore throwing shoulder, said the Colts need to be more professional.While Luck didnt single anyone out, other than himself, he backtracked a bit by acknowledging later that he was only referring to the sloppy play and the need for everyone to play better. Teammates understood exactly what Luck meant.Just hold everybody accountable, do the little things right, being a pro, being on time, dont let outside distractions affect whats going on in the locker room, Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis said. Its meant to reinforce what you have to do as a pro, sacrifice.And get things fixed when they go awry.Far too often this season, coaches have seen the same problems week after week, so Tuesday, the Colts made some changes.Perhaps the decision on Cromartie was explainable, given that he was signed in mid-August to help a secondary depleted by injuries and now that the Colts are nearly back to full strength , they didnt need a 32-year-old cornerback.Cromartie didnt help his cause, either. On the final possession of the first half Sunday, Cromartie was burned for two completions and called for holding and pass interference on an eight-play drive that led to a Jacksonville field goal. He was benched in the second half.Moores case was more puzzling. After trading a draft pick to Oakland last September and cutting veteran Nate Irving before the season, Moore put solid numbers on paper. But he also was one of Indys biggest offenders of missed tackles.Guys know in this profession you have to go out there and get your job done, cornerback Darius Butler said. Its a bottom line business. Ive been let go twice, I know the feeling. Like I said, its part of the profession and you just have to go out there and play. With no clear-cut replacement on the roster for Moore, Monachino intends to use veteran Josh McNary, fourth-round draft pick Antonio Morrison and Edwin Jackson, who has played mostly on special teams -- to fill the gap. Pagano said Wednesday that a bigger safety, such as 6-foot-2, 220-pound Clayton Geathers, also could find playing time in Moores old spot.Whoever winds up with the job, theyll know this: If they dont succeed, Indy wont wait long to make a move.We all understand that this is a black-and-white production business. Either you can or you cant, you have or you have not, you will or you wont, Monachino said. We all understand this is a black-and-white production business. Either you have and you can or you havent and you cant. We will continue to work our craft and continue to get better.Game notes Butler (hamstring) and right guard Denzelle Good (back) did limited work Thursday. ... Running back Frank Gore and outside linebacker Erik Walden, who both missed practice Wednesday with chest injuries, were both full go Thursday. Right tackle Joe Reitz (back) also was a full participant after being limited Wednesday. ... Monachino said defensive tackle Art Jones was lean and in good shape when he returned from his four-game suspension for violating the leagues performance-enhancing substance policy. Its still uncertain if Jones will be activated for Sundays game.----Online:AP NFL website: and Custom Detroit Lions Jerseys .

Daniel Ricciardo believes Kimi Raikkonens grid penalty compounded his issues in Suzuka after the Australian lost out at the start of the race and ended up finishing a lonely sixth.Raikkonen was slapped with a five-place penalty two hours out from the start of the Japanese Grand Prix after taking a new gearbox, which meant Ricciardo jumped up to fourth, but on the slippery side of the grid. What seemed like a stroke of luck turned out to be anything but as Ricciardo and Hamilton -- who started on the same side in second -- both endured sluggish getaways.Raikkonens gearbox penalty was the opposite of a blessing in disguise. It put me on the wet side of the grid and it looked like all of us on that inside line struggled a bit, especially Hamilton, he said. My initial launch was not bad, but then having to go around [Hamilton] I crossed the wet patch and lost out, so then Perez got by.On the first stint we struggled to stay close, and it just seemed like we couldnt follow the cars that well with the dirty air and we diidnt have the straight line speed to make an attack.ddddddddddddRicciardo, who won last time out in Malaysia to break a two year race win drought, never seemed to have the pace of the frontrunners including teammate Max Verstappen who finished in second place for the second week in a row.Nevertheless, the 27-year-old is confident of turning it around for the United States Grand Prix in Austin in a fortnights time.I didnt feel that there was anything else we could do today. It was just a bit lonely out there trying to do my thing, but its one of those things, Ricciardo said. We will try improve the car were we can, but it was just more circumstances, and we will come back in Austin ready to not only eat plenty of barbeque but have a good weekend in track.Ricciardo is currently third in the drivers championship, 101 points behind leader Nico Rosberg and 42 ahead of fourth placed Raikkonen.
