It was more weird, when Freeney and Mathis would be chasing after Manning in wild card round

It's really strange. We have lots of damage at many positions right now. we are in need of a tournaquet at many positions. we are really bleeding out at corner right now, ...... what's y'all opinion as to how we will stop their Gabbert throwing attack knowing we are hemmoraging due to injuries?

Im not sure if you're serious. I hardly see our defense getting torched by Gabbert. No MJD, little run game= Play action doesnt work. I predict a W for the Colts.

Um.... It's Gabbert. He stops himself.

Andrew is going to throw for more yards than Peyton becuares the Broncos will be ahead and playing in some bad weather next month...

the Colts will trail more and play in perfect conditions...

..dont tell anybody but Andrew Luck is going to throw for 5,000 yards...

He killed us last time.

He did?

I thought MJD and a blown zone coverage killed us.

Gabbert was very pedestrian that entire game, but he made a very professional throw on the game winning touchdown.

...

I'm serious.

Well, usually the man behind the gun is guilty of pulling the trigger.

He had put together a devastating 75 yard performance until that last throw. If Sergio Brown doesn't make a bonehead coverage jump and then smack himself on the head after, that play doesn't result in an 80 yard TD.

Yea, you're right, he padded his numbers on that last throw.

With the way that Oliver Luck took over for Archie Manning and now this odd littlle stat It's been kind of a Lincoln/Kennedy type of situation between Luck/Manning.

Hooray for cognitive biases.

The PREVENT DEFENSE killed us..........the biggest cop-out...ridiculous defense EVER...WE BLEW IT! JUST SAY NO TO ANYTHING resembling a PREVENT DEFENSE...DID I say I did not like the PREVENT DEFENSE? IT PREVENTED a win! Larry Coyer...the Cover Nobody Destroyer made it famous. :)

You are right my friend. I keep trying to forgive Casius Vaughn for that as he has played quite well since. But I keep seeing him slapping the sides of his helmet as the ball sails by above his head :wall: I can almost hear him saying DUH! ala Homer Simpson!

he's had games where he didn't throw for 200 so to be predicting at this juncture is just spinning yarn.

Luck also had exactly 18 incompletions this past Sunday. Then the Colts would travel to Denver for the playoffs. Pretty sure the mayans were right.

one problem we didn't play prevent defense on that play had we that play doesn't happen because that's the exact type of play the prevent defense is built to stop. We played a more aggressive defense and got burned.

Yeah, a properly executed prevent defense is the correct call there, because the point of prevent is to prevent a YAC touchdown by giving up a short completion while positioning too many players between the receiver and the end zone for the receiver to score.

Which is pretty much exactly what we didn't do on that play. If our DBs play deeper, we probably win.

Bethea could have played further to the middle rather than stretching so far to the sideline. He'd have at least been able to catch Shorts and bring him down.

The defense I thought we should have played was Man 3: three man rush, three safeties, man coverage on every eligible receiver. It's a safe defense that limits big plays and allows you to make up for mistakes in coverage. We got a little too aggressive, which I understand because of the field position, but there's always the possibility of a blown coverage, which is what happened. And the rest is history.

I agree actually, Man 3 would be my go-to "prevent-type" defense in most situations like that. It's also good because it rather effectively simplifies defensive assignments - there's no real mental errors to be made in a scheme like that.

FWIW I also found the Falcons' 1-minute defense rather interesting against the Cowboys on Monday, they were playing a 7-man shell with a pair of guys each playing short, medium, and long sidelines, plus a deep man in the middle.

Depends on when Bethea could have brought him down. It would then have been our luck to endure a Josh Scobee game winning FG.

Remember, when the Texans started as a franchise, the Jaguars kept losing to them??? I hope that is not the case with us losing to the lowly Jags.

    • 1970 and 2006. Colts were SB champs, NFL Network did these two years.  My two favorite years as a lifetime Colts fan. A lot of players and coaches to be proud of. I know to most, they don't belong together but I can't help it: both were my Colts, both wore the horseshoe. Unitas, Jones, Peyton and Luck. Moore, Mitchell, Dickey, James and Gore. John Mackey and Dallas Clark. The list goes on. To be a fan for all these years has been rewarding and frustrating. But I'm glad to have been a Colts fan and look forward to possibility seeing a team that ranks up there with some of the best that has ever worn the horseshoe. It may take a little time but I'm hopeful! C-O-L-T-S Colts!!!!
    • The mugshot will be a meme sensation!
    • Yep. We are going backwards and PG saw that and wants out. This teams has big contracts wrapped up in two aging guys Al and Monta and they are awful for this team. By the time you re-sign Teague to his new more expensive contract and depending on what you do with CJ who will be up for a bigger contract you really don't have much room to add anyone....even a shooter like Riddick might not be affordable. Its almost impossible to compete with the Cavs who are like 30 million over the cap when you have an owner like Simon and when you have to over-pay mediocre talent just to come play with you. I do think this team under-achieved but I'm not going to pretend its even close to contending. We are a long ways off from that and I'm sure PG realizes that....and its going to be very tough to convince him we can help him win it all and we will finally pair him with another superstar when we bring in Monta Ellis and say there you go Paul...there's your star upgrade...go compete. I'm sure he believes if he is in LA it will be easier to convince free agents to come sign and win something with him....after all...nowadays it takes 3 or 4 stars to compete with the Cavs and Warriors.
    • I personally thought his first game against Tennessee was his best of the season and top 5 maybe top 3 of his career. I went down to watch that game in person. Sweet seats in the lower bowl.    Luck  came out blazing. It was clear from the beginning there was an emphasis on getting the ball out quickly. And boy did he ever. 3 step drops. 5 step drops. Ball coming out on time. Throwing to spots and hitting receivers as soon as they came out of their breaks.  Back should fades...   Near perfection. Plus I think Doyle dropped a TD just before halftime or he may have flirted with a perfect rating.  Was well worth the trip down to see Luck put on a clinic...
    • If we are close to anything, its close to not being a playoff team. We almost weren't this year.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
