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).

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]     
    • Slow starts. We were leading by the end of Q1 on more occasions than we were losing last year.
