Of course it is a long season, and lots of movement from week to week, add it with a cookie and all you have is a cookie, BUT

As Coach said, "remember where they had us, each and every one of them".

Just sayin' I got a very big kick seeing that number.

My favorite quote of the year.

I think it was Reggie Wayne that said during the Jags post-game that they recognize they need to treat every game here on through like a playoff game. I love that attitude because it's true. Houston's probably got the division so we gotta fight extra hard for the Wild Card.

Rankings mean nothing. because come playoff time its awhole new season. Giants,Seahawks,Cardinals have showes us that in recent years. Giants going 9-7 winning the superbowl, Seahawks 7-9 beat the saints in the first round, Cardinals 8-8 went to the superbowl. we all know the colts dont have the team to make the superbowl let alone win it BUT it is football and they are all playing to win so anything can happen.

Rankings mean nothing.

Obviously, who thinks they do? Power Rankings are made for fun, and to try and determine which teams are better than others, but everyone knows the margins of victory is close enough for most teams to overcome someone higher than them. "Any Given Sunday". These things are supposed to be fun, I don't think many people take them too seriously.

And the Jags are now officially the worst team in the NFL according to NFL.com.

I think the Jags and Chiefs belong in a category of succotash-edness all their own, and the flies are swarming.

Even if the Colts struggled this year, there was always a sense of promise about them. Does anybody feel optimistic about where the Chiefs and Jags are heading right now... Unless its Jags to LA?

There are several teams that come to mind when I think of being "stuck" at the bottom for years and years and never really seem to get their team going in the right direction.

Hey Guys and Gals! Long Time Listener, First Time Caller!!!

I think everyone agrees that Power Ranking mean nothing. Now that were 11-12ish or at the begining, when they had us Last!

It's still good to see the Colts get Respect!! Didn't move up much by beating the Jags, how far up do we go when we beat NE???

I love how not to long ago, everyone said we had "no weapons, except an aging 87". Now we have "talented, fast Rookies and a HOFer 87"

2011 colts "suck for Luck"

2012 Jags "suck for L.A."

It's no secret that it starts with a franchise QB, and if you miss on your choice it sets the team back years. The only team that has had worse luck (NPI) than those teams has to be the Browns. But even they may have finally found their guy.

I mostly agree, but tbh I'm especially disappointed in the Jags. Gerrard and Leftwich weren't "franchise" QBs either, but their D was at least good enough to be competitive even where they were never truly contenders. Now they are pretty much miserable across the board.

They used to be like the pesky younger brother who talks trash too much, occasionally beats you in something, but never when it really counts. Now it almost feels like he's sick and unable to play at all. It kinda makes me a little sad.

So we still have a shot at the rose bowl then?

I think we're shooting for the Fiesta Bowl for Luck again

Maybe we should go for the Sugar (same place as the Super Bowl...)

I don't know that.

I didn't think we had a chance in 06 after MJD destroyed us. I didn't think the Giants had a chance last year.

Look what happened. Never say never. A fire is tough to put out. We're on fire at the moment.

as i said its football and their playing to win so anything can happen. but its not a team that is put together to win it all this year. your comparing the colts to last years giants and the 06 colts. neither of those two teams went through the overhaul that this years colts have gone through, with new coaches, GM, defensive scheme, the offense has never played together up until this year so the chemistry hasnt been there (but is getting better each game). you really cant compare this year to those teams you mentioned, because those teams were better.

    • Looking WAY Ahead: The 2017 NFL RB Draft Class....
      So, here'a Valentine's day gift for all my Colts' NFL draft fans.....   By now, some of you (perhaps even most of you?) have heard that the 2017 class of running backs is shaping up to be an all-time great class should everyone who can come out declare.     (And some of these guys could go back to school and come out in 2018, but I suspect it's not likely)   10 really great looking backs.  (In no particular order, this is NOT a ranking)      Starting with.....      1.   Leonard Fournette        LSU 2.   Nick Chubb                   Georgia 3.   Sony Michel                  Georgia 4.   Dalvin Cook                  Florida St. 5.   James Connor              Pitts 6.   Royce Freeman           Oregon 7.   Corey Clement             Wiscon 8.   Samajie Perine            Okla 9.   Kevin Taylor                 Florida 10.  Christian McCaffrey    Stanford   Pretty incredible list.       And who knows how many others might surface between now and the next 14 months or so?   Oh,  and a footnote.....   Over on my Stanford site, one fan who has visits Pro Football Focus found this amazing factoid about McCaffrey.....     how great was his 2015 season?        This great..........   (Cutting and Pasting from PFF)   Christian McCaffrey (RB, Stanford) had the best college season of any running back.   Ever. Do you remember Melvin Gordon at Wisconsin last year? He was unstoppable. In Week 14 of 2014 against Nebraska, he ran for what was at the time an NCAA record 408 yards en route to 2,587 yards on the year. He had the most yards of any running back in college football history other than the great Barry Sanders in 1988. Gordon led all running backs with a season grade of +31.7.
        In 2015, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey made Gordon look like he was running in snow pants.  By virtually every metric, McCaffrey had one of the most historic seasons we’ve ever seen. He shattered Barry Sanders’ all-purpose yards record by 614 yards (3,864). In the Rose Bowl, he was the first player in the bowl’s history to have 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving.  In the end, he graded out to +51 — almost 20 points higher than Gordon’s terrific 2014 season.  In addition, he received a grade of +16.5 as a kick and punt returner – good for second in the nation.  He runs, he catches and he returns kicks at an elite level.  
    • Broncos just showed why Colts have to draft all Defense in draft...
      I know we expected Eddie Goldman to go in the first round last year, and for Malcolm Brown to go maybe top 15, but neither thing happened so I guess it's not too far fetched to possibly have Ashawn on the board at 18.  I'd pick the guy for sure.

      Charitable....
    • Broncos just showed why Colts have to draft all Defense in draft...
      I wonder how much chance we have of picking up Ashawn Robinson?  I think he's a real good player. I'd love to have a rotation of Anderson, Robinson, Langford, Jones, Parry, Winn.
