now that this win is out of the way we have unfinished buisiness with the jags.

I think we will win this game, but I'm a little concerned about this one. It always seems like we can never just dominate the Jags the way we should. We let them hang around and then bad things happen late. We need to reverse this trend this week!

I hope we annihilate those clowns..i get ticked off every time I look at our record and think what if ..we could've been 6-2 and sitting pretty comfortable..

When I look at the Jags record now I am even more #$%ed off about that loss. GGGRRR!!!

I predict a shoot out since it is being played on a short week.

What did Collingsworth say, "You're only as good as your last loss when referring to Andrew Luck and the ugly, ugly loss to the New York Jets and bad picks and so forth." I mean, if we lay an egg vs. Jacksonville, one of the worst teams in the league, a real stinker, then perhaps you can say that but CC really is a non-Indy fan for some reason, or perhaps that is just perception.

I like the pressure that we were able to put on Tannehill in the Dolphins game. If we are able to produce the same king of pressure against Gabbert, we stand a good chance to win. We know that the Jaguars will try to run against our defense, being that Gabbert is ranked 30th in the league in pass yards. Our run defense has to get redemption, even if MJD is out for this game.

On offense, I think Luck should continue playing at an improved level, as he has been the last two games. I also think we'll have a better rushing attack this week. The Jaguars may be too focused on stopping Wayne, Luck and the passing game.

Lastly, I think we should always look out for teams with nothing to play for. They'll take shots deep and do the unexpected out of desparation.

Ease up guys! I'm keen on gettin' 6th win and revenge over Jax, but...we gave 8 injured players.

Satle is substitued by Shipley well, but Avery and Mathis are already out, I think. One of our best defensive player and one of Luck's most productive (and dangerous) weapons.

IMO this gonna be a struggle again, however I think our D is effective against run, and Gabbert won't throw an other 80 yds TD pass in the next decade again.

Well said, my wine consuming friend. I want a W as much as anyone, and I always believe the Colts will win, no matter the circumstances (vision?). But in fairness to the task.... we are as thin in depth at a couple of positions as we have been for some time, including last year and we face a division rival (throw out the records). Also, we go on the road. Not insurmountable, but a tall order.

    • 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.
