I believe luck will have a big game against dolphins defense.

36 posts in this topic

Forget what the stats say. This is what I believe will happen. Luck will come out in the no huddle and light up the dolphins secondary which will force them to back off opening up running lanes for brown and ballard. The dolphins can send the pass rush, but this will be countered with quick screens. Brown may even take one back 80 yards for a td if the dolphins try to play too aggressive. Luck has seen plenty of teams with good defenses this year and I expect him to be poised under pressure and make throws that will have wake scratching his head. Naturally the dolphins will get to Luck a couple times , but in the end the colts prevail 28 to 24. And yes the colts can score 28 points against the dolphins defense as long as they come out with the quick no huddle and execute. Reggie bush will be held under 100 yards.

Well considering the Colts have scored 30 only once this year and mostly around the 20 mark, I would suggest you hope for a 17-20 point s ore for us while the defense holds back scores from Miami. Miami has one of the toughest defenses in the league so far and just because luck had sucecess against a bad titans defense doesn't mean it will duplicate itself again this week. I have tempered my excitement for this season. Each win is truly a gift.

Build that monster!!!

Let's hope so, because Miami has been stopping the running attack of most teams they have played.

Luck will need to play aggressive to win.

Thats optimism at its finest. If they score more than 21 points I'll be surprised.

The Dolphins defense has only surrendered that much once in regulation this year, and that was the opener against the Texans where JJ Watt went crazy for 7 minutes batting passes that resulted in 21 of their 30 points in a couple of minutes span.

Don't be fooled by the stats of Miami's pass defense, the Dolphin front seven is so stout that teams try to attack through the air more than run on Miami...which results in inflated stats. Its not about how you move the ball between the 20's...its whether you score points.

Miami has a positive +24 point PF/PA differential....the Colts a Minus -35.

So while both teams are 4-3...one is actually looking like a 4-3 team, and the other looks like a mirage.

Don't get down on yourself. You won't be a mirage always. But, thanks for the compliment.

I'm not overlooking the stats. The colts have something the dolphins won't have. Their sick head coach is supposed to be attending the game and based on how they performed versus greenbay I expect a similiar perfermance here.

First off the titans didn't play the way the stats suggested. Their defense isn't bad. They wore swatting down passes like crazy. Second that game was on the road and the colts were without mathis who has a sack in every game he's played and will be on fire sunday when his headcoach attends game. I also expect reggie wayne to show up in a big way. It doesn't matter how good the dolphins secondary is. When players play with passion for their coach they can do things they ordinarily wouldn't. That's why I expect the colts to score more than 20 because it doesn't matter how tough of a challenge the dolphins may be. They will rise to the challenge and over come it.

Eh, emotion can only get a team so far. I wouldn't expect the same performance, it's kind of a once in a season thing. Sure, they'll be pumped and ready to prove to their head coach that they can win, but we can't predict anything like the anomaly that was the Colts/Packers game.

No, I just think they are having the same mindset of a select few around here...no one expected them to be 4-3, and playing this well at this point in the season. They are actually pretty similar to the Colts actually, rookie QB and all. They expect they have a shot at the playoffs just like the fans here do. The AFC is wide open when it comes to the WC.

I doubt Luck will have a good game because against good defensive teams, we struggle big time. Look how bad our O-line has been ,,,, Luck has to scramble 4 out of every 5 throws because he doesn't have a release as fast as Mannings, not too many qb's do, so our o-line must take the challenge which they havent done and have failed many times at it. i have faith that we can win but predicting Luck will have a good game is way over the top. once the game is over and if I am wrong, you can come back here and rip me up and I'll deserve it, but I don't think I'm wrong on this one. He'll have some INT's and low pass completion ratio and balls thrown off-target, etc.

I would have liked this post, but I'm out of likes. I don't think we need a visit from Chuck and a bunch of other emotional catalysts to inspire us to play well in this game. I expect us to play well because that is the standard we set for ourselves. Getting one step closer to our goals should be motivation enough.

That's a balanced view point. Can't argue against you on this one!

Exactly, and I'm sure by this point, 12's goals are playoffs. I'm sure a few others on the team have that mindset as well.

in the end the team that wants it more will prevail. I think getting blown out by the jets was a blessing in disguise because now the colts know what its like to play a team that wants to win badly and that should help keep them from underestimating the dolphins.

Wow...i think youre letting all those wins against sub .500 teams get to your head there a tad.

The Phins are giving up 280 passing yards a game and thats with facing the likes of Kevin Kolb, Carson Palmer, The Rams O and Mark Sanchez twice.

You guys are certainly ahead of schedule but lets relax on the SB talk here.

Your boy Trindan Holliday took one to the House yesterday! I was at the Buffalo Wild Wings on Westheimer and Royal Oaks, and all the Texans fans were looking at the replay going "Who was that dude that ran that kickoff back for a TD against Cincinatti?" When they found out they said "Man we were stupid as you know what for letting him go, now we don't have nothin!" It was funny!

Hahaha well it was against Cincinatti, and he was bound to get one eventually. I still don't miss his almost effortless ability to screw things up single-handedly though hahaha. But I'm glad he's doing well. I'm sure PM doesn't mind either lol.

Got to hand it to you...but define 'big game'....

..you spoke in generalities....the big prize goes to the guy who said that Luck would do as well as Peyton Manning after 8 games

The funny thing is, when I first got Madden 11 back in the day I picked him up for my franchise to return kicks.

He was good for a KRTD per game, usually, and he'd take a punt back to the house once about every 3 games. He wasn't too useful at WR, but I turned him into a HB and used him sparingly and it worked out pretty well. He ended up spending the gist of his career with me.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
