Question of the Day - 11/03

19 posts in this topic

Following lousy 2011 seasons - the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins hired new coaching staffs - turned over a major part of their rosters - drafted new "franchise QB's" in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft - and - embarked on the uncertain waters of the 2012 NFL seasons !!

Not quite to the half-way point of the season - BOTH teams have already exceeded expectations and actually become part of the "mix" for the 2012 post-season discussion !!

That being said - being impartial (LOL) and fair - WHICH team do you believe will win Sunday's game between the Colts and Dolphins in Lucas Oil Stadium ??

Colts but our lines need to have a great game, not necessarily perfect but with a nonstop motor and will.

It'll be close, it'll come down to whether Tannehill plays or not. If he plays i think the Dolphins'll take it. If not then i'll take the Colts.

The 2012 Dolphins are like last years 49ers. All the experts were knocking them right after the draft predicting dismal seasons and they were/are big surprises.Same as with the Colts, you cant make season predictions based on previous seasons results, not with wholesale changes being made. Gotta go with my Colts on this one, believe in Blue! GO COLTS!

I think the colts take it by 3

Andrew Luck - 325 yards 3 TD's 2 INT (lead a last minute GW 54 yard drive to set up an AV FG)

AV - game winning FG

I hope we win, but I think the Dolphins are the favorable team in this match up, so above all, I'm just hoping for an enjoyable game with a lot of exciting plays.

Colts win a close game, Luck has a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown do to Miamis aggressive Linebacker play

I take it we pinned them back on their own goal line and forced them to punt? We are certainly not getting the ball back on our own 46 yard line from a kick off return! Or a turnover....

I think it'll be Dolphins by +10. Don't think we can handle any of their lines.

I predict both teams play hard!

Here is to a healthy team at the end of regulation.

    • I have to agree with this sentiment.    I was worried they/he rushed back from injury too soon. I hope it's not career ending. Even though he was a division rival, I've always liked how he carried himself on and off the field. I wish him the best.
    • But he didn't, despite the narrative.    Grigson drafted 4 receivers in 4 years: Hilton (3rd), Brazill (6th), Moncrief (3rd), Dorsett (1st).    In the same time period, he drafted 6 OL: Anderson (7th), Thornton (3rd), Holmes (4th), Mewhort (2nd), John (7th), Good (7th).   Then this year, he drafted 4 more OL, including Kelly in the 1st. In five years, that's 4 receivers, 10 OL. Even "early" picks -- which to me is first and second rounders -- is 2 OL, 1 WR. Add in the third round, and it's still 3 OL and 3 WRs.   Grigson largely failed to fix the OL for four years, no question. But it's not because he didn't try, and it's definitely not because he spent too many picks on receivers. 
    • I worry about many things, but Dorsett isn't one of them.
    • Wouldn't a PS player have to remain on the team for 3 weeks? So when Jones came back next week someone else would have to be cut
    • In theory, yes, the Colts at their best could probably beat any team in the league. The offense would have to avoid mistakes, the defense would have to tackle well, and they'd probably still need some help from the other team in the form of missed opportunities (Rivers missed 3-4 TD throws on Sunday). They could get hot, stay healthy, and knock some teams off. It would be awesome if they were humming in December and January and made it to the Super Bowl, but don't hold your breath.    In practice, this year's Colts are a second tier team, at best. The OL is a work in progress (positive things are on the way, I believe, but the protection is still leaky and the run blocking is even further off), the QB and receivers aren't consistently on the same page. The defense can't cover the middle and can't consistently rush the passer. The coaching staff hasn't proven that they have the ability scheme and strategically minimize these weaknesses AND maximize the obvious strengths. In fact, in the biggest test of this ability -- late in the Denver game -- the coaching staff blew it.   If the Colts were able to play to their full potential every single week, and stay healthy, and if the coaching staff pushed the right buttons every game and in every situation, you might have a 13-3 team with a first round bye. But even then, you're probably looking at the 2010/2012 Falcons; that team even won a playoff game, but wasn't a great team, and quickly regressed (4-12 in 2013, a year after going to the NFCCG). This team appears more likely to play below expectations than to exceed expectations, sadly. Just not enough playmakers, especially on defense.   The hope is that the last two draft classes keep going in the right direction, and you get another two draft classes that pan out. Doesn't mean the Colts aren't trying to contend in the meantime, but it's going to be a couple years before the Colts will be considered one of the top teams in the league. And that's assuming things go well and the staff does the right things over the next two offseasons, which isn't a given.
