A loss in NE and the doom will be back here in full force at 6-4.

Positive thinking folks, we CAN beat the Patriots.

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.

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...

I am forever grateful for all the great players I've been fortunate enough to watch play the game with horseshoes on their helmets,

and I'm eagerly anticipating the opportunity to see which new Colts become the stars and fan favorites of tomorrow.

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.

Believe In Blue!!!

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.

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?

"Anyone a die harder fan? I will be there believing to the end. Who is with me?" Thread started by Steveeoaktree33 at 2:49 PM of the day the Colts executed the second largest comeback in NFL playoff history. Very few concurred.

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?
