I would've never guessed. Judging by your username, I thought you liked the Patriots. :P

The worst part is that my brother-in-law is from Boston and is an insufferable Patriots fan. I've been inches away from strangling him numerous times.

If you have kids you could always do a home-made DVD, of them saying hello to their uncle and then having it flip over the to highlights of the 2006 AFCCG, then have the kids come back saying Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas.

Why SHOULD we beat the patriots? We match up horribly against them. Here's to hoping we pull an upset. But don't be upset if we lose..easily..

of all the games on the schedule..at Chicago.....at NE and at Houston were always our least likely wins...

But we can be 10-6 without those games

I think the way we have to beat the Pats is to keep up with them. No conservative play. Luck CAN move the football on their D. So if we keep up, we can very much win this game. but if their D stops us once, that means our D has to do a heck of a lot to give us a stop back. And the Patriots O is unlikely going to be stopped. Key is rush the passer and score a ton of points.

Especially if the Bears take care of business as I'm hoping they would and if we beat the patriots like we should.....I'm just saying..never say never..

If we win our division, I expect 1st ore 2nd seed in the playoffs.

You mean Orlovsky? Painter was pulled before the NE game. And didnt we lose by double digits and were down by a fair amount majority of the game before a late push in the 4th quarter?

You're right. Does anyone remember what game that was when Painter missed Garcon running free down the right side?

I am rooting for DA BEARZ. But, I don't mind the Texans either as a team or organization. Sigh. They are the most likable of the 3 division rivals to me.

If you can call them that. More like the misfit teams thrown together in a division.

I love the changing landscape... Texans, Falcons, 49ers, Bears.. it's nice not to actually not hate a team that could contend for SB :goodluck:

But, but, I DO hate the Bears.

I don't hate the Texans......yet, but they're in our way.

I'm torn this weekend.

I hope they tie.

Again you aren't cheering for the Bears you are cheering against the Texans to help the Colts.

,

The Colts only have one less win than the Texans. Heck, I didn't expect this either, but I wouldn't exactly call it worried. I would call it...concern. Lol with this tough game coming up, I am concerned about what might happen, but then again, who knows. I'm going for NE next week, no need for them to boost you guys up in the division hahaha.

Yeah, we definitely shouldn't win this game, but the way this season's going, I could see us doing some damage. And if so, the official rivalry with Houston is on! I can't wait for the years to come!

Belichik will take away Wayne, and make Luck beat us going to our other rookies. BB knows rooks make mistakes, and he's hoping to make ours do likewise and give them the edge. He always changes up schemes to confuse, and even if Andrew catches on, will T.Y , Brazil, Allen and the others?

I don't think we'll take this road game. But we need to take out next two home games, for certain! and stealing a road win in Detroit would be awesome as well.

You never know. But I hope people will accept that we've already had a successful season, and if we end up 8-8 it's a near miracle.

That being said, I'm rooting against the Chargers again because I feel they're better than their record and are our main competition for that last wildcard spot. Plus, it just feels right!

The partiots do not have anyone that can cover Wayne right now. Belichicks vaunted defenses are a thing of the pass. Lets not forget he already loss to rookie Russel WIlson.

It simply does not work that way.

Apparently you missed my point by a mile. It was clearly any given Sunday for this team.

Can't see us wining next week, or even having a chance of the division title by the time we go to Houston. But you just never know.....And the Texans could get banged up down the stretch, and we get and stay relatively healthly.

I think we will need to score at least 35 points to win this game. I don't see us doing that. We need to score TDs once we get into the red zone and not settle for fgs. Can we score 35 points?

Houston has two very difficult road games left at Chicago and at NE. Assuming they lose both of those games, the Colts COULD still compete for the division even if they lost this weekend at NE because of the two remaining games against Houston.

IF the Colts lose at NE though the margin for error is razor thin after that.

TBH, I don't see us winning the division. I just don't see how the schedules ahead for both teams allow it. Would be cool to get back to ye olden ways, but let's not get a banner ready yet.

At this point, a Wild Card berth should be expected and the #1 goal. If the division happens to fall to us in the process, woohoo. If not, we're still miles ahead of where we should be.

Its possible...but highly unlikely.

We'd have to basically beat the Texans twice. Just dont see that happening.

I think were going to have our hands full just trying to get a wildcard much less pulling off the unthinkable.

Talib will be playing against us....

And? Talib was awful last year. Not saying the Pats wont get more out of him but Talib is not a shutdown corner.

Or maybe a continuous loop of the David Tyree and Mario Manningham catches. =)

Ahh I see now. Pats lost to Cardinals, we beat the Packers. I thought you were implying we could beat the Pats because they lost to the lowly Cardinals and we beat the Pack. Packers are a superior team to the Cardinals etc...

Gotcha.

If Texans lose to the Bears & Colts beat the Patriots I can see us taking the crown, but I know the Patriots game is going to be tough.

IF we win we have a chance, but I don't see it happening.... but, THAT'S WHY YOU PLAY THE GAME! :)

Upsets happen!

Yeah it's a good place to settle down and chill out. It's so laid back(almost too laid back at times) it's kind of a ho hum pace. You can see why because the heat forces you to slow your roll!

You guys played a good game tonight! Have to give respect where it's due. Although I think the outcome would have been different had Cutler not gotten the concussion. Jason Campbell is just not good.

    • Scouting notes -- Pitt WR, Tyler Boyd
      Nice receiver with good college production as the primary weapon for a limited QB. Had a DUI last offseason when he was only 20 years old, received a year of probation as a first time offender. Reports have said that he had a BAC lower than .08, but because he was underage, he was charged anyway. Obviously a series of bad decisions led to the incident, but it doesn't seem like a major issue. He was suspended one game in 2015.    http://draftbreakdown.com/players/tyler-boyd/ http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/tyler-boyd-1.html   Size: Listed at about 6'2", 200 pounds. Kind of thin, but has a good frame that can easily support a little more muscle. Long arms and big hands. 3/5   Athleticism: Not impressive athletically. Doesn't have elite top end speed, isn't particularly quick in short area. Has some quickness, and definitely has good feet, which help him to shake defenders and create separation at times, and he comes out of his breaks cleanly and with good burst. There's a little bit of a 6th gear at times when he has the ball and room to run, but he's not a burner and rarely runs away from defenders. Good change of direction, good balance. Not a great leaper. 6/10, he has quick twitch characteristics   Hands: Strong hands, good catching ability, extends hands away from body to increase his catch radius in all directions, goes down to get low passes, and can snatch it out of the air, whether it's above him, behind him, whatever. Not consistent catching the ball when contested, and sometimes loses on plays that he should win because of a lack of aggression. 8/10   Routes: Good technical ability running routes, setting up defenders, getting off the line cleanly, positioning himself in short yardage situations, etc. Works zones well, seems to understand how to beat all different coverages. Good feet, patient route runner, keeps hands working in concert with legs, gives QB a clean target on slant routes. Has a feel for the ball when it's in the air, stacks defenders on go routes. Lines up all over the field and runs routes both ways, breaks well to the sideline and on comebacks and quick stop routes; defenders seem to respect him as a deep threat, so maybe I'm missing something on his speed. Either way, he's a smooth and polished route runner who will pick up more tricks with NFL coaching. 9/10 (Gif machine isn't working, so go to his Iowa cut-up and go to the 5:46 point and watch him take a defender apart.)   Physicality: Not very physical, either at the line of scrimmage or when the ball is in the air. Seems bothered by hands-y and aggressive DBs, especially if he doesn't beat them initially. Does a good job of maintaining position when the ball is in the air, but can let defenders come through him and ride him off the spot or out of bounds. Decent blocking ability, shows some violent hands at times, but not a road grader or even necessarily that competitive in blocking situations. I'd consider him a finesse player. Has the potential to be much more, given his size and frame. 5/10   Body control / adjustment ability: Always seems to be in control of his body, feet, hands, arms, hips. Patient runner, with and without the ball, keeps his feet under him, changes direction decisively and with burst, but not wildly. Positions well, keeps a good distance away from the sideline to give the QB room to throw it outside, didn't play with good QBs but seems like he'd be a great stop fade receiver. Shows ability to adjust well to the ball, comes back for underthrows, gets low to pluck the ball, can reach behind him to make acrobatic catches. Moderate beef is that he shows some passiveness on comeback plays rather than going to get the ball, sometimes allowing the defender to make a play that he's in better position for. 7.5/10   Elusiveness: Kind of covered already, but he has moves to make defenders miss and get separation from coverage. Not necessarily explosive, but has some wiggle. 6/10   Run blocking: Also covered in physicality, kind of underwhelming for his size, takes bad angles at times and sometimes takes plays off. Has the size and ability, just doesn't seem that dedicated. He's a high usage player, so he might be preserving energy or protecting himself. 2/5   Overall: 47.5/70, 68%, 2nd/3rd rounder, potential to move higher if he runs well at the Combine   Scheme fit: 5/5, no issues, could play inside and outside, and has some kick/punt return experience   Polished, experienced, technically sound player with proven production who has some upside as a technician, and if he's faster than I think he is then he can be a big time weapon in the NFL. Reminds me of a slightly smaller and less aggressive Jordan Matthews, of whom I was a big fan two years ago. Boyd doesn't have elite physical traits, but he can play right away for a team needing receiver help. He's not a first rounder, IMO, so I don't think his DUI is a major factor, but teams will obviously check him out. He's been a model citizen otherwise, from what I can see. I think he'll be a top 75 selection, maybe a top 50 selection.
    • Peyton Manning sex assault allegations
      This woman was paid on two different occasions on this matter. Once from the University for $300,000. and  another time from the Manning's. While this is only my opinion it is what it is. I think this lady took this as an opportunity to get some money not only once, but twice. I think if she were truly offended that money wouldn't have made her shut up and go away. $300,000. was a lot of money 22 years ago and what the Manning's paid was undisclosed. It was more than likely a pretty good sum I would think if the university forked out the $300,000. Funny how a lot of money changes on the severity of being offended.

      If we're talking about a CONTEST, as in more than one great performance (an actual competition), than tonight takes the cake. 
    • Peyton Manning sex assault allegations
      Ah, this again.   Fortunately this incedent was vetted with great detail over a decade ago.  The conclusion back then was that he had acted foolishly, not that he was a raving lunatic.
