  1. Worst crew I've seen in a long time. Every key players they are calling something. Sure, the Colts have had some bonehead plays but these refs are deciding the game
  2. My opinion is this: The Colts tend to, and have in the past with some exceptions, play to the level of their competition. We have seen it in years past. 2013....they beat both SB participants but get dusted by the Chargers and Rams. 2014....blasted the Bengals and Ravens but lost big to the Steelers, Pats and Cowboys. The times they are beaten badly, it's usually a personnel issue. Sometimes it's scheme, as with the Pats, but mostly personnel IMO. BUT, in most games they play to the level of their competitors. See this year against the Broncos. They went into the defending SB Champs home and held serve until the last drive. But they lose to the Jags. So, for this game, I except them to dial it up again and make it a game. I can't say they win, but I give them a good chance. Osweiler hasn't been great, but we are a sieve on D. I really wish we had Moncrief back for this one. At the same time, Luck and the offense can take advantage of their we have Vinatieri and McAfee. Homer me says 27-21 Colts Realistic me says 17-28 Texans
  3. Dwayne had a good game. Doyle did ok as well. I hope Dwayne can keep it up, and Doyle can keep developing into a solid TE2.
  4. If this has been posted before I apologize....but I think Rick Venturi would be great in a "consultant" role to the Colts. He knows his Xs and Os and every week before the games sets up what needs to happen for the Colts to win. And he's pretty spot on. He's getting up there in age, but maybe if the Colts brought him in as an extra set of eyes, it wouldn't hurt. Before I get blasted for his win/loss record, keep in mind he helmed some pretty terrible teams. The Colts team he took over in 1991 (around that time) was just awful. And he coached at Northwestern when they were a perennial doormat of the Big Ten in the late 70s. But he has a lot of defensive coaching experience, and seems to know where guys fit. He also knows schemes. I listened to him break down how Belihick and the Pats were going to attack the Colts before the last few times they played, and he was dead on each time. Wouldn't be a bad guy to have around. Just a thought....
  5. To be fair, a lot of those accuracy issues were due to us getting pressure on him. He had to force it several times bc we were finally getting to him. Needs to be more consistent...some plays he had all day, others he had to throw quickly and was hit just after releasing the ball. Baby steps I guess
  6. Huh? They got pressure with 3 twice that drive.
  7. Only cost us 3....gotta come back strong on this drive!
  8. OMG a 1st Quarter Touchdown?? "Daddy does that ever happen?" Lol
  9. Hate to see Te'o go down...He was good at ND (aside from the fake gf stuff). Big Irish fan so that sucks for him
  10. Ugh. Holding, backed up now. But at least we forced a 3 and out.
  11. Semi-OT, but just saw Brandon Marshall of the Jets go down with a pretty nasty knee taken down from up high and his knee buckled. Cleats on the left foot got stuck in the....guess what, artificial turf. Same thing may have happened in natural grass, but maybe not. It's anecdotal, but it points to what I've been saying about the new turf being to "grippy"; maybe a new cleat that doesn't grab so much would be a solution....or a newer turf. Bc we know turf is not going away. I remember on the old stuff the players used to wear cleats that were almost like basketball shoes, just little tiny nubs on them.
  12. I used to be #1, but as I've grown older, I've become #2. Having a 2 year old son and getting older in general kinda puts life into perspective. Yeah I was disappointed but it's just a game...for our entertainment.
