The big 5 days....

24 posts in this topic

This is like that NBC cable show 'Turning Point'

This is where we either show no fear or wait for next year....

////Miami and Jacksonville in 5 days.....a chance to go to 6-3 and be playoff contenders

or a chance to ...uh...well...go the other way.

I think to win twice in 5 days...is a big step forward for the team no matter what happens after that

How does everybody think we'll do in the next 5 days.? 0-2, 1-1 or 2-0

Think Miami will be close, but I like the Colts chances at home coming off a big road win with a young team energized with the 12th man at the Luc (plus getting Mathis back)...

Jacksonville I am a little more worried about as a road game on a short week after what will hopefully be a home win could be tougher even though Jacksonville may not be quite as formidable an opponent as Miami currently, added with the fact that they are a division opponent...

however, I do hope the revenge factor comes into play in Jax,

either way I think the Colts come out of this two game span 1-1...

but heres to hoping Andrew & co. can stay healthy & make it 2-0

This young team IS making good strides & showing it is learning how to limit mistakes & win games!!!

I think it will be tough on the team, but not impossible. I really hope that they can keep the injuries down to a minimum. All I can say is the Thursday night game will be ugly, especially if some key players go down on Sunday. But, this is why those guys get paid the big bucks.

I am hoping 2-0. I think we CAN win both games, but we will have to continue to grow. Our team is learning every week. They do not look exactly the same each week and you see different little tweaks on the field. We have some personel getting healthy and we have some personel starting to get comfortable with each other. I think if all our players do their jobs, we win both of these games and shock the NFL. We have the potential, but at this point, it is just that, POTENTIAL. So hopefully these games play out and people start to recognize we are beyond potential, and are building one heck of a MONSTER MONSTER!!! I'm not much of a "predicter" because anything can happen in the NFL. I try to be more of an analyzer and see it how it is. So I will not predict 2-0, but will say I believe we can win 2-0!

I think Coby Fleener and Vontae Davis are out of both games....right?

here's where you can use all 3 running backs because Miami's going to pound on them Sunday and they have to come back quick on Thursday.

This is a big moment and I hope we're ready...

All of the injuries that we've had this season has allowed us to get playing time for our back-ups and for the most part, they've done well. I like that we've slowly built depth, which will come in handy for a tough week like the one we have coming up.

I think with Angerer, Freeney, and Mathis playing all at once is going to show us a big improvement in the defense. just Freeney and mathis being out there together the defense plays better. I think this weekends game will be more on whos QB makes the most mistakes out there.

Colts - 24

Dolphins - 20

then thursdays game, again Mathis, Angerer ( i love that name i dont know why lol) Freeney out there improves our defense that much more. and the jags without MJD more then likely for thursday nights game, i think the colts run away with it.

Colts - 27

Jags - 10

6-3 heading into New England.

It'll either go 2 Ways:

1. Beat MIA, Beat JAX

2. Lose to MIA, Beat JAX.

Either way, JAX is a Win. Revenge is gonna be Sweet on Thursday. With majority of the Team Healthy (Hopefully no injuries on Sunday) then we'll do Great. No way we let JAX Sweep us again this year

It is a interesting match-up both weeks.

Both games could go either way. I say we lose to Mia and win at Jax.

Miami is too good defensively to run the ball and Wake will have a good day.

With both Gabbert and MJD injured or coming back from injury, I don't see them winning, even at home after they scraped out a win at LOS

My prediction is 1-1. Unfortunately, I think whether it's at home or not, this Sunday's game is Miami's for the taking, they can stop the run really well and get at the quarterback. If they can do just that, I think it's going to be a long day for our offense. But hopefully we can beat them by not making mistakes and calling smart plays.

I will be very satisfied with remaining over 500. 1-1 in the next two games is a great accomplishment for this young team.

To answer your question, Mark, I think we have a chance to make the playoffs, but I truly dont think we are deep enough at many positions to be playoff contenders. My guess of 5 wins was upped to 7 after watching the preseason. I feel good about the fact that we have 4 of those already. ;) The schedule is about to get tougher. Regardless of how it turns out, I am having a great time as a Colt fan.

No way we lose at home with the crowd rocking..... 12th man

A. Mathis will have the rookie QB on the ropes all day

B. Defense is becoming very solid

C. Luck will have another game under his belt and at home versus an OK secondary to say the least.

D. Our COLTS are CHUCKSTRONG.

E. Besides we do not lose when i tailgate before games.....lmao

Talk about lucking into a short week.

Of all the teams to play on the short week we get a banged up 2 teams with one of them being a team we really want revenge on.

I say 2-0....23-17 and 31-10.... The march to the playoffs continues.

This definitely plays in our favor.

      Barring a big injury or a drug conviction, we're getting nowhere near him.   McCaffrey might fall to us.

      Between the thread title and the OP's first post,  as well as the other posts the question being asked (and reason for the thread) is obvious. 
    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      Did you ever watch a dark romantic comedy that just collapsed or imploded on it's own face? Well, I just did & this epic 2015 disaster is called appropriately "Trainwreck." Hey, look on the bright side, it's known as foreshadowing right? For starters, this 2 hour & 4 minute picture directed by Judd Apatow is too darn long. Second, in the interest of full disclosure, I have never found comedian Amy Schumer funny. I have listened to some of her standup routine & I stare at my watch waiting for an eternity for her to say anything remotely humorous. It's admirable that she tries to address the concerns of women that are full figured with meat on their bones wider than a supermodel toothpick sure. However, she's just not a woman who has ever made me laugh. Plus, Amy's dialog in this flick is too sexually centered in scope with almost nothing else redeeming about her character. Just in case you were wondering, yes Amy is related to NY Senator Chuck Schumer in real life too. Third, Amy's co-star in this film Bill Hader gave a much better performance in "The Skeleton Twins" than this piece of trash. Fourth, director Judd Apatow known for the tremendous TV show 'Freaks & Geeks' completely missed the mark here. The script is too predicable & can be seen from a mile away. Judd you're so much better than crap like this man come on dude seriously.    This flick is like a raunchy version of "When Harry Met Sally" except without the sharp wit of Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal. Only this time, the opposites attract are between a doctor & a writer for a tabloid magazine like Cosmopolitan filled with articles about sports, finding the perfect mate, & favorite sexual positions etc. etc.    Plotline: Amy Townsend [Amy Schumer]  lives in the Big Apple as a writer for a pathetic relationship ship magazine. Hey, since her character's last name is Townsend, does that mean she is the offspring of Who guitarist Pete Townsend? No, but it's the 1st question that popped into my head though. Amy sleeps around a lot & she basically an alcoholic. There's a reason for that. At a young age, she had her father Gordon [Colin Quinn] explain to her & her sibling Kim [Brie Larson] why their parents were breaking up & getting a divorce. Basically, Gordon used a doll analogy to tell his girls that he cheated on their mother, got thrown out the house, & that a committed relationship with 1 other person for a long time was unnatural & should be avoided at all costs.    Because of this misguided pearl of wisdom, Amy went thru a number of 1 night stands like chewing gum. Her sister Kim chose to settle down, buy a house, get married & have a son. All that changed for Amy when she is forced to do a feature magazine article on the sports medicine doctor & flawless surgeon to superstar athletes like Lebron James & Amar'e Stoudemire named Dr. Aaron Conners [Bill Hader]. Thru the course of writing the article, Dr. Conners & Amy do sleep together, but she is petrified because she has never dated such a smart & kind boyfriend before. She starts to feel genuinely happy for the 1st time in her life so Amy decides to sabotage the chemistry they have together by blowing Aaron off to take a call from her editor as he is giving a speech accepting a prestigious award for his charity work as a member of Doctors Without Borders giving life saving medical care to the poor & disadvantaged in war torn countries abroad.    As a result, Amy fights with Aaron wondering why such a sweet, well adjusted guy likes & even claims to love her. They argue throughout the night, which prevents Dr. Conners from being able to carry out a vital knee surgery the next day. They decide to part ways & shortly thereafter Kim sadly informs her sister that their beloved father Gordon has passed away. This earth shattering news forces Amy to stop drinking, refrain from smoking pot anymore, & she gets Dr. Conners feature article spotlighted in a reputable periodical called Vanity Fair. Amy mails a copy of the magazine directed to Aaron's team office for the NY Knicks & this noble gesture prompts Dr. Conners to start seeing Miss Townsend socially again. Amy ultimately wins her man back by doing a cheerleader floor routine on the court at Madison Square Garden. She fails to use a trampoline properly, but it's okay because this athletic blunder cements their romantic relationship permanently.    There is some nice cameo work by Lebron James in this picture. Both he & Bill Hader have some comical brief moments together interacting on & off the basketball court like 2 brothers watching each other's back even though they are not blood relatives perse.    How do I grade "Trainwreck" as a film? The plot had no twists or turns in it, I just don't find Amy Schumer lovable as a character in any way, shape, or form, there were a couple of memorable lines in it that I can't repeat on a PG based family  forum,  & as a completed work there was virtually no depth or lasting gravity here. In addition there is a sex scene with an underaged magazine intern employee that quite frankly didn't need to be seen or acted out at all IMO. Very tasteless. I get why it used as a mechanism to get Amy fired in the storyline, but it was beyond stupid & totally unnecessary for a widespread audience to visualize up close & personal. I was gonna give this picture an F, but since I enjoyed watching LeBron James & Bill Hader toy with 1 another on screen, I will bump my grade up to a D-. Like the title suggests, skip this 'Trainwreck' at any & all costs.
