The big 5 days....

Recommended Posts

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.

Off-Topic: Think your avatar needs a new chant. I could be wrong, but 500 miles east I think someone else has that one. ;)

    • Looks to me those 3 will be fine together.
    • Honestly speaking, the colts have been dominating teams (except the rams) in the first half of games, including the seahawks game. If they can just translate their first half success to the second half, we would be in great shape.   I think that finally happens this week.  
    • A really tough one this week as you have one team that is up and down from one game to the next and one team that is up and down one half to the next!   I think the key to this game is who takes the lead.  If Jags get the lead, they just run the ball down our throats to eat the clock and make first downs, we then have to throw into, in my opinion, the best secondary in football, to receivers who can hardly be called "consistent".  If we take the lead and manage to stuff the run (which I think our defense is capable of) and the ball has to go into Bortles' hands, we can win this.   My optimistic prediction, Colts win 27-24 and finally hold onto a lead which we take into half time!
    • We're choking with an injured team all while using a back up QB? LOL Makes sense.
    • I just wish they would give Luck what they gave Peyton, complete control.  You want him to be the franchise see if he is capable to run the offense himself.  Tom Moore always said he would give "suggestions" to Manning and many of times he would still run a completely different play.  See if Luck can get some of that as well.  Not to easy I get it because Manning is one of a kind but Luck is a smart guy with knowledge of defenses.  Give him control and watch how some short routes start to happen when pressure comes.  Just a man being hopeful I guess!
