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

    • Luck is 92 on the top 100
      He is the only other Colt I can see being in the Top 100 but not sure he will make it being that he is a Punter. If he is in it, I will predict it's next week between 81-90
    • Luck is 92 on the top 100
      I like how McAfee is praising Luck in the video, but we all know Pat wants to stand up in that interview and say, "Hah, I'm gonna be a higher rank than Luck! Suck it, Luck! Punters rule!"
    • Earl Okine
      Just a nitpick here but as to Green......I don't believe he was on any top 100 players list until he predictably blew up the combine with numbers. I'm also pretty certain though it has yet to play out in reality that as a #2 in a Man scheme that we replaced a Toler with maybe a notch just above Toler....maybe. Though if that holds true I'm hoping Robinson holds true to form like h did in New Orleans and counters that with making plays a lot of plays on the ball. I also don't think Cole was bad considering he was in a rotation. I've decided to go back over the games on Rewind and try to see if I can see why PFF handed out the grades they did to players.   They have Cole at a 77.1 pass rush grade and a 78.8 run defense grade(329 pass snaps, 204 pass snaps) . Neither number is outstanding or what some expected but both numbers rated as Starter numbers in. I also don't think I would have paid Vernon nearly what he got but he did get quite a bit of pressure last year on the QB IN 543 pass snaps with a 90.7 pass rush grade and 12th in run defense grade at 84.9   For comparison PFF has Mathis at a 75.3 pass rush grade and 51.3 run defense grade (380 pass snaps, 180 run snaps)   Not to say PFF is right of course but they do have interesting grades on the two to me (Mathis, Cole).   Maybe Cole really did get more combined pressure then Mathis though Mathis obviously had more sacks? What are your thoughts on that (QB pressures are not available. Maybe PFF already took that down?)     Overall they have Cole at a 79.3 grade Mathis at 71.7 grade
    • Luck is 92 on the top 100
      I knew he would make it just out of respect from his first 3 years in the league. He was #7 last season and the NFL Network probably figured his injuries had to do with most of his struggles. Everyone seen what he is capable of after how he played against the Broncos, the game where he got injured. I wasn't too far off. A while back I posted he would be between 75-90 because he still simply is a Top 10 QB in the league, he came in at #92. I bet none of the other QB's in our Division make the Top 100.
