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.

Fine, then you'll be fighting that battle every week as critics will come and go based on each game. I'll wait till the end of the season.

busy back peddling I'm sure, because they are the same that said the Cowboys were gonna be in the SB this year.. LOL

Cowboys? In the SB? Blasphemy!

Preach it from the rooftops MCF & QuizBoy. The day I see the Cowboys in the SB in this decade with the roster & coaching staff as it is currently constructed is the day I walk without the aid of forearm crutches. Translation: It's never gonna happen, come to fruition, or see the light of day.

I'm with Gavin on this one. They weren't criticisms, but ligitimate concerns.

Andrew is as good as we thought he would be, but the real surprise is our running game isn't as bad as was advertised.

At the end of the day we all have our arguements. Mine was lets get Vick Ballard the ball. We did that and seem to be having a bit more success on the ground giving him more touches. I know his stats don't look better than DB, but stats don't show acrobatic twists into the end zone. We also struggle stopping the run consistantly, so the Pats will be a challenge for us.

Alot of things happened this year that you can't find on the stat sheet also....

Stats don't show a struggling Luck having the pressure taken off him when his head coach was struck with Lukemia.

Stats don't show a secondary playing way better than their means.

Stats don't show Ballards acrobatic TDs.

gotta watch the games.

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).

Why get so angry about people guessing outcomes in a sporting competition? Do you send them flowers or gifts and heap adulation on the ones who get things right? And the very example (Prisco) you mention was paraded on this very Forum because the so called 'expert' had the manners to admit he was wrong.

But you are probably correct, we should stick these '*' in Death Row.

Don't know what gave you the idea I was angry. I'm not at all. And these guys aren't *. At best you can call me jaded. I was merely trying to say that these expert predictions are silly and meaningless. Perhaps I didn't articulate my self welll...

    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      Hahaha yeah and the Colts were without Luck for 9 games and we still split the series with them. The Texans narrowly escaped with that win against us too, WITHOUT Luck!!! Not impressive if you ask me. Then they got spanked and embarrassed in the first round of the playoffs. If the Colts boast an improved O line this year with a healthy Luck and a competent offensive coordinator, I think the Colts still have this division. Plus we get Henry Anderson back on D. And Brock is still very largely unproven so there is more question marks there than answers right now.  
    • Add 2 players to the Colts- 1 on offense and 1 on defense
      Watt Gronk Not very imaginative,  but those are your game wreckers
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      I think the original comment about a backup P/K was a joke since teams don't carry backup kickers in the regular season.  Therefore the depth would be N/A instead of getting an "A" grade, like the OP did.   The starters get an "A", but there are no backup kickers on ANY team to grade for depth...
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      So because you haven't seen it happen, Vinatieri hasn't punted a football in years, and therefore, couldn't even do it if he had to in a game?    You don't think the Colts have ever practiced for a situation where McAfee gets hurt, and Vinny has to punt?  Have you seen how McAfee hits returners?   You don't think he has punted the ball once in a single practice with the Colts ever?  Because you haven't seen it in camp?

      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

      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.
