I wouldnt say critics because all of which you mentioned in the thread title was genuine concerns. our O Line and defense has been anything but good, good enough yes but good? not even close, up until the last game we were playing without a secondary and Luck constantly has to create something out of nothing because of the pressure he is under, also playcalling has been questionable and down right bad sometimes (good at times as well), Im glad our record is what it is, I thought 5-11 was more like what our record would be. I've said it before so I will say it again, if we didnt have Luck then we would be wondering more then likely when our first win would be right about now

our defense imo has kept us in games. the line might not be giving luck tom brady type protection, but its decent and much improved run blocking. cant be complaining too much on play calling since we've scored 20 or more in what 7 out of 9 games. how many 20 point games did we have last year?

It's been a great year so far... but lets be honest. This team could very easily be 1-8...

But they are not.......

Luck has totally delivered in the clutch. And this is why all the talking heads keep killing me when they continually point to Luck's QBR, or his INT's... "he is the 25th ranked QB statistically" .. or whatever...

These clowns don't watch the games obviously... Luck IS the reason this team is 6-3. He is playing at an MVP level.

If Andrew were playing in NY or Dallas they would all be giving him the ROTY and MVP tomorrow.

Some get it, and some are just fat and lazy and just look at the stats every Monday... But last I checked the W column is the only one that matters... Tim Tebow anyone? Bayless keeps slobbering over Tebow and refuses to give Luck any love.

comical really..

Most critics are ban wagan fans they jump from team to team as long as a team is winning most commentators are the same way not to often do we see a commentator make a bold prediction of a team that previously had a lossing record to be successful they just go with the flow.

Actually, I don't have a problem with the critics as long as they fall on their symbolic sword, eat some crow, and admit that they made a colossal mistake in judgement. If they refuse to do that then let's conjure up some Medieval torture devices for them shall we... Just Kidding!!!

They are still there, waiting, lurking and waiting to feast on the Colts next loss. They are also waiting for Luck to have another seriously bad game then the blood suckers will come out in full force making it sound like the Colts made all the wrong decisions and that Luck should be playing in the CFL.

Sorry, but it's way too early to gloat. We go something like 2-5 to finish the season and they'll be back. In fact they may be back if we get routed by the Pats. Also, our Oline still could get Luck killed. He's taken some viscious hits and if not for his mobility, would have taken more. I'd wait till the end of the season before puffing out the chest. :goodluck:

All of our long drives have kept this D looking ... so so. And AGAIN, the Competition has been soft. Did Anyone miss MJD Sunday?

We are like 7th in 3rd down efficiency. lmao amazed, proud, this NEW-Young-Team is doing that. It`s Awesome.

BTW, NOONE expected Andrew to be this ellusive in the pocket. He is a 9 on a 10 scale NOW!

He has ZERO to go on for this season regarding Tim Tebow, is he seriously still talking about last year? I don't like Steven A. Smith ( what does the A stand for I wonder) but I wish he would smack Skip sometimes.

Sorry, defense is still suspect. 7 of the last 9 teams we have faced are 20th or less in total offense. Our true test comes Sunday, this is a big game for the colts, if we do good defensively against the pats offense then I'll jump off a 1000 foot cliff. If manusky has the corners play 6 to 8 yards off the receivers like we did against the jags then we should lose big time. Anything can happen, just have to see who shows up to play

Andrew lucks numbers on the road need to improve. I believe he only has 2 or 3 touchdowns to 7 or 8 interceptions with a qb rating of 75 or below

2 touchdowns to 7 picks, 204 of his total passing attempts (362) have come when the Colts are behind though, He gets off to hot starts in the 1st quarter of games completing 71 percent of his passes (many factors in that however, chief among them is drops and playcalling and O Line) but slowly cools way down but has taken 14 sacks in the second half of games, eh he is a rookie and without him like I say this team would be wondering when its first win would come still and alot of us fans would be going crazy

Not that I disagree but against those offenses they held them to virtually nothing. I would be concerned if they allowed any of those offenses to go off, but they've kept them limited with the exception of the Jets.

6 out of 9 weeks holding teams to 20 points or less isn't too shabby. Especially considering the changes.

How are defense plays, will determine if we win this game or not, not Andrew luck necessarily, he should have a good game against the pats defense

The statement was 'where are our critics NOW', not where will our critics be after week 17. I watch 4/5 games a week, and all QB's get thumped regularly. Some think our guy is the only one who gets hit. They all do.

That's the beauty of the pre-season predictions. Everyone plays it safe and picks the teams they can most easily defend, i.e. the ones that did best last year or ones that were active in FA. And when their shallow/nonexistent "analysis" is proven wrong, they can just bill teams like the Colts as "surprises" and teams like the Panthers as "disappointments". They never have to admit they were wrong, even when someone digs up their moronic projections (like Prisco's 1-15 Colts prediction).

    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      I'm not worried that Luck won't have Fleener or Griff.   He'll be OK.      He'll throw to Allen or Moncrief or someone else.        He'll create some chemistry with another receiver.       Of all the worries about Luck for me,  losing Coby and Griff are among the least of them....  
    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      id only entertain this idea if it was a mentor role. I dont wanna see dorsett losing snaps to a guy who will be here one maybe two years. I honestly would like to see what we got in our young wrs past hilton moncrief and dorsett. I really like danny anthrop. he his eldeman-like skills. sneaky quick and very good strong hands
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      security blanket? all fleener got on here was heat and now he was a security blanket for luck? don't get me wrong, I liked fleener and yes he made some easy drops and didnt really use his height to his advantage, but he also made so really nice catches like the one vs the texans for the two point conversation and the against his body catch vs the bengals,
    • Cardinals , Cubs and all MLB 2016
      Yeah back then the Cubs and Mets were in the same Division even but the Cubs weren't any good in 1986 and once the Playoffs started I was pulling for the Mets that season. I mainly did because Doc was my favorite pitcher in the league. A lot of people at my school loved Roger Clemens so I played the fun enemy role and rolled with Doc when the World Series started. I was in High School in 1986, fun days!
    • 2016 Fantasy Football Leagues
      I am just curious as to why you cant keep 2 or 3 players as a keeper and use your draft strategy with those players on your roster? We used a keeper league prior to last season and it worked just fine. The only reason we didn't stay a keeper league is we switched to NFL.com. Part off the reason I joined the league in the first place was because it was a keeper league. With 12 owners having a keeper league it makes better competition IMO.  It also makes for better ability to do trades that benefit both parties.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
