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.

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

wouldnt getting the ball on our own 46 and a 54 yard drive be a touchdown???? thats why i said game winning field goal. not extra point lol.

    • 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.
