  1. True dat! Me too. But I'd rather be wrong as an optimist than right as a pessimist!
  2. I think we'll be in the game. You can't get any luckier than having David Johnson and DJ Humphries miss the game for the Cards. Every year we have to relearn the facts that teams are closer in talent than we think and that you shouldn't condemn or anoint a team after one bad/great game...
  3. tolzien

    I think aTolzien will be better than people think. Odds are that he's the better QB in today's game IMO...
  4. With the news that Luck may still be a month away (and this rumor now sounds right to me after how quickly he was ruled out this week), I think we have to adjust our attitude heading into the season. We could witness some serious ups and downs on O and D inside each game. Still optimistic though - Rams and Cleveland in the first three make 2-1 a real possibility. However, I'm going to try to take away positives even if we should lose today. I'm going to try to expect another 8-8 season and look for surprise players that will help us contend after another Ballard draft. And if we end up in the playoffs this year, I'll be ecstatic.
  5. Don't care what it makes me look like, it is 100% about "Spygate, Deflategate, etc.". In a league that has gone out of its way to promote parity, the Pats are the team that somehow stays uber competitive and are also the team that keeps getting caught cheating. Pretty easy to put two and two together. What makes it worse for Colt fans is the realization that the Pat cheating was concurrent to our best Manning- led teams (inexplicably) losing to the Pats in the playoffs. Can't help but wonder how many SBs the Colts were duped out of. So, you just can't wave these scandals off with a flip of your hand...
  6. So far, the Pats have the worst rated offense and defense in the NFL, as well as (by far) the worst rated QB. Should we be discussing 0-16 for them?
  7. Happier than I'll be when the Colts win this weekend! 19-0! Ha ha ha ha ha!
  8. Week One Colts vs. Rams Prediction Thread

    Colts 24 Rams 13 I keep hearing the LA defense getting props. Researched the starters, and I'm not really certain the have the personnel for their switch to Wade Phillips' 3-4 D. Without Donald, the DL includes a couple of 285 lb. situational pass rushers and. 305 lb. NT. Quinn only had 4 sacks last year and he's transitioning to OLB. Mark Barron is A 225 lb. former S switching to ILB. It seems like these guys should be pretty easy to run on. Their secondary looks veteran and solid, but #1 CB Trumaine Johnson is supposed to be a poor fit for Son of Bum's D...
  9. Sox caught using Apple Watch to steal signals and use them in game. What is it about those Bostonians? Anyone who thinks the Pats' string of success is coaching or that Brady is the GOAT is ignoring all the cheating...
  10. Colts Practice 9/4/17

    No Bug Howard or Jojo Natson on the PS either. Would have lost money on that... I like Hogan's combine # s, though. He sounds good...
  11. Who is our 6th receiver??

    Agree. We don't necessarily more than five WRs. I am surprised Aiken made it though. I really thought Jojo, Bug, or Fred Brown showed more than he did...
  12. So, we've still got four QBs and a total of 54 players on the roster, right?
  13. Dead last.......

    pfffft! Pre-season stats from two bad games and one good one where the vast majority of PT is by players who will not make the team don't mean squat! I'm just encouraged by the Steeler game, and I'll leave it at that...
  14. Ok guys I am curious what you think.

    Tired of hearing things like our OL is in shambles. We're definitely fine for Game 1 at LT, RG, & LG. Clark has disappointed, but Bond and Vujnovich helped form a pretty solid OL against Pitt. Plus, Good looked good subbing for Mewhort. Our OL is fine. On a side note, listening to enemy podcasts, Houston and Tennessee fans are freakin' out about how bad their OLs looked in Game 3. Yes, the vaunted Titan line looked terrible.
