I'm "toting the rock" first today - AND - being HONEST with my answers:

1. I would have been THRILLED with 6 - 10 - but - honestly thought 5 - 11 was more realistic

2. Absotively posilutely NOT !! I figured one to two more years before the Colts were playoff contenders again !!

1. I was thinking 6-10 for the season.

2. No, because 6-10 teams don't make the playoffs.

1. I predicted 4-6 wins, so I thought our record would be 6-10 at best.

2. No. No way...Nothing was pointing toward playoffs.

1. I started out with a 4-12 prediction at the beginning of the year.

2. I didn't think it was at all possible that this team would be in contention for the next 2 years.

1. I honestly believed that we would be 6-10. BrentMC11 can confirm this fact for verification purposes.

2. Nope, we aren't making the Playoffs. Well, unless pigs can fly anyway. Airborne bacon...Homer Simpson would like that. I doubt we will make them next year either. Perhaps, a Wildcard spot if we are lucky.

"One RULE on today's answers - you MUST BE HONEST !!... (Reminder: we're being HONEST)" Are you suggesting that I am a liar? Exaggerate yes; lie no. haha Just Kidding sb41champs!!!

i thought we could be 8-8 and then our schedule came out and thought 10-6 wasn't all that crazy.

again after the schedule came out i figured we would have an outside shot. never thought we would be in the drivers seat and still in the divisional race

1) 9-7 give or take a few games

2) I've been saying the Wildcard is possible before week 1.

1) I figured they'd be somewhere around 8-8. (I'm now predicting 10-6.)

2) No way would I have thought they would be in a playoff spot.

I'll take a wild guess and say 8-8. A 9-7 record puts you on the bubble of the play-off and usually 10-6 gets you in.

Please don't get me wrong but yes I'd love to make it to the play-offs. I want the team to make me eat my words but it'll be a tough road to make the play-offs.

1. I did think 6-10 and felt early that with lack of depth and injuries we could have fallen flat on our 'donkeys.' :) Here is to a resilient team....that is Chuck Strong to the bone!!!!!! :colts: :colts: :colts: (BTW, Southwest is the most brutally honest guy I know!!!! SW: I approve your message)

2. Never in my thoughts, and I still feel that every game is a playoff game to get better. We need to play each 60 minutes like there is no tomorrow...just as Coach is fighting every second! :coltsfb: :coltsfb: :coltsfb:

i did say 9-7 or 10-6 at best. and i also said the colts will most likely get the wild card slot.

When we started threads before the season I said:

1. good shot at an 8-8 season with our schedule. would have been happy with 6-10

2. HONESTLY thought we would do better than all the doomsayers predicted, but don't think I was even thinking ahead to playoff shots or appearances.

Honestly I said 10-6 while being overly optmistic and bet my Bro 5 bucks Colts would make the playoffs

I said 6-10 many times. Obviously I didn't see them in the Playoff picture. But 6-10 is good for a totally rebuilt team!

We were 2-14 last season and basically dumped or lost many of our "known" players (Saturday, Clark, Garcon, some quarterback....) With that, I was hoping for a 5-11 season, figuring it would be a great improvement as we climb upwards.

Playoffs? Playoffs? did you say Playoffs?...

I had us pegged for 8-8, or a game in either direction from that. I had no expectation of playoffs this year.

1. "7-9 or 9-7. Nothing More, Nothing Less"- TKnight85 <---- Everyone can Confirm this (Only if you were here in the Beginning)

2. Yes, if we reached the 9-7 Prediction. I don't think we'd make it in the Playoffs with a 7-9 Record, but hey...... anything is Possible

1. I never made a guess. I Had NO idea what to expect this year.

2. I didn't expect to be in Playoff discussions. Very Pleased with the excitement of the Season this year.

"In the playoff discussion" is a vague phrase......they play Houston twice in the last 3 weeks..of course they are in the playoff discussion...

we mapped it out here many times..

I thought they'd be 7-9 and miss the playoffs.....losing to Detroit, NE, KC (remember this was BEFORE the season) and Houston twice ...

unfortunately...that's still possible

    • Extremly early prediction...
      Great list too but I cant see Action Jackson being cut.
    • Andrew Luck Overrated?
      Chiefs collapsed because Andrew figured them out. It took him a Half but he did it. He has only played 4 seasons so he has plenty of time to win a SB. He has already made a Final 4 and that is great for a resume. The team he lost too was led by Tom Brady and they won the SB so no shame in that, Russell Wilson lost to the same team as well 2 weeks later.
    • Haeg got first team rels at RG over Clark?
      I am not, honestly I wouldn't be shocked if he doesn't make the final roster.  I think if he was going to have a breakout year he would have had it by now.  I think the fact the Colts drafted so many guys who can play guard also helps prove they are preparing to move on from Thornton.
    • Extremly early prediction...
      Yeah, I really like Irving, Moore, and Sylvestre, and I think the opportunity to save a lot of money against the cap will push them to keep the youth instead.  I know it would be a surprise move, but it makes a lot of sense to me.  Unfortunately for Jones, I don't think we'll see the same type of player after two fairly bad season ending injuries at his age (ala Donald Thomas).
    • Extremly early prediction...
      Dqwell our tackling machine? no way they cut him! i can see the art jones thing happening but then again when on the field hes our best run defender

      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.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      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!
