I wouldn't have believed it back during the preseason.

This team is really gelling, and they have good coaches teaching them. Also, Grigson has collected some great talent for very cheap after letting some guys go.

I think we could beat the Pats if the offense can keep up with the Pats. We have one of the better second half defenses in the league. Arians and Manusky do a very good job adjusting after halftime.

That the Colts are sitting at 6-3 and in a playoff drivers seat.

Triuthfully....Tiger.....some of us did predict this....we've had a favorbale schedule

but what I would not believe is if we beat Houston and NE....That would make this the greatest Colts regular seasion ever

It is better that we are in the driver seat instead of Toonces the cat.

I think the doomsayers will come out of the woodwork again if the Colts get blown out. And I would join them to this extent: teams can only play the opponents on their schedule, but this year has been the biggest cupcake schedule I think I've ever seen the Colts play. To get to 6-3, the team has shown growth, but it is still a reflection of an easy road. A blow out next week makes the team look like a pretender. A well contested loss would not.

Now, a win on the other hand...

After seeing the Bills almost do it, my hopes have just risen. We are a much better team than Buffalo.

Won't happen. If we lose, it will be by 6 or less. NE's D can be had. They are not the powerhouse we faced in '06, 03, 02,........

This depends on which NE decides to show up. The one where their defense looks like a rising threat or the one that blows an entire half. Our offense has been looking great, but still hasn't played well for four quarters (sometimes hardly for 3). We are going to have to get in the end zone, and probably a lot.

actually i believe we can beat the patriots and i honestly think we will. i think BA will use a playbook to keep brady off the field. if we keep running the ball and can build 5-8 minute possessions we can win this game.

The Colts are not the powerhouse they were (or are soon going to be) either.

I don't think this will be a blowout, and I think the Colts can win, but I said the same before the Jets game.

we might not have beaten the cream of the crop, but we have beaten good teams like the packers, vikings, and dolphins

Yes. You can`t compare this years squad to last years. If had the same coaches and players then yeah it`d be shocking but its not to me.

It's still surprising to me that this team is playing this well already. If this team had the same coaches and players it wouldn't only be shocking, it would be impossible. There is definitely more talent on this team, but competent coaching has

made a world of difference.

I disagree. I also love discussing this.

I went and looked over the schedule thus far, looked at it as the teams were when we played them, I think it was not a cupcake schedule. If it were true, then we would have only gotten wins against the bad teams. I think there is so much parity in this league that there are no more cupcake schedules. Just ask the Dolphins who were dismantled by the Titans. Or the Pats who lost to the Cardinals. Or the Packers who lost to us.

I predict next week that a team will shock the league next week and win a game they "shouldn't". But will it really be a shock?

When Irsay decided to gut everything and start fresh the one main thing he stressed he would go after is team emotion,if you will, starting with the coaches and front office. That has been infectious to the players. I follow different Colts players on Twitter. IMO,Robert Mathis for one wasnt happy with the old team mindset.Once Chuck Pagano came in the picture with his philosophies it all changed.This defense is fun to play in and the players bought into it. The Colts still attack downfield on offense but now they have or are getting very close to having a 4 minute offense they can switch gears to at the end of a game to seal the deal. Special teams arent the greatest but they sure are better than anything in the past. Talent, great coaching mixed with heart and determination have this team on its way. It all goes back to Irsay`s vision in the beginning of a better "blue"print

The Bills came pretty close to beating the Pats yesterday. The Buffalo Bills.

Why count us out before we even show up?

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
