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.

Plenty of time for that after our playoff run :goodluck:

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.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
