Big losses are beneficial to young teams. Still lots of football to be played, still lots of growing to be done. We will be ok. Still love this team.

I agree. Take away the first two picks, which were terrible passes, and he had a very impressive performance - find it hard to blame him for the third pick.

Lets face it, the D is putrid. But I take solace in the fact that the Texans D was horrible two years ago. It only takes a few key players to turn it around. In our case it may be 9 key players. But it will be better next year.

absolutely! The Colts moved the ball well, hung in for awhile on defense but made too many turnovers to give them a chance to stay in the game. Give Brady all day to throw and he will carve you up. He did..

I'm proud of Luck, who gave (by far) the most valiant effort. He still tried hard even when the game was out of reach.

The kid has balls, not to mention a heck of a lot of skill... he's going places in this league.

I absolutely HATE the patriots, mostly brady and bb, there well known for rubbing it in on a team, and in todays game there was the perfect example, with them ahead 52 to 24 with less than half a quarter to go brady is still throwing the ball to get another td to really humiliate us.TOTALLY DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We don't play them next year but it's possible we will play them again before brady is washed up, and most likely the game will be in Indy, and when we do, we won't forget this game, and Luck and the Colts will be really good by that time, and we will pay them back BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. I feel that game would not have been so lop-sided at home. Luck is struggling on the road, and in going to NE, that was a worse-case scenario.

Take back 2 pick-6 returns and that punt return, that game would have an entirely different dynamic.

It's easy to get excited over us having been 6-3.....it raised expectations beyond what's reasonable. We're 6-4, and that ain't bad. We knew this year would be rough and I would submit that any reasonable expectations heading into the year have been surpassed.

I wouldn't be half as upset if it was any other team in the league that put up those points on us. Pats fans are the absolute worst.

I was at the 35-34 game a few years agao where Pats were stomping us at halftime and they were running around Lucas Oil just taunting EVERYONE. After Bullit made the stop on 4th down and we came back and won, those fans had to leave out the back door. The stadium was electric after that. Not only because we came back, but we did it against Belichick and the Pats crap talking fans

Hey at least Pat McAfee got to body slam Edleman yesterday. Stellar.

I agree with everything here.

Would I have liked a win... ABSOLUTELY... but did I EXPECT IT... Nope!

It's easy to forget that Luck is a rookie and I don't think he played like one... but rather as a veteran quarterback against the Patriots given little time. It seems he always had someone hanging on him or hitting him. I even a saw a helmet to helmet that wasn't called.

I'm also not a homer... I know our D is bad. Sure we have moments of brilliance, but I don't know that it's our D purposely being in the right place, but rather a series of events where they happen to be there to make the plays.

It takes a lot of talent to play in the NFL, but it takes something special to play at a high level and we just aren't there yet. I don't know that we can get there with the defensive players we have. I don't see someone on our D that elevates those around them.

I still look forward to victories and think we will find ourselves in the playoffs... but we aren't a deep round playoff team yet.

BTW... I too hate the Patriots!!!!

There are only two teams I really can't stand.

The Patriots and the Saints.

Both appear to be a classless bunch.

Players have to produce to keep their jobs. Their performance is on film. If coaches put them out there, they have to play, play hard, and play well. If not, they may lose their job to the 'next man up' on the pine. I don't blame offense players for running up scores, coaches maybe. Defenses most certainly. Don't want a team running up the scoreboard? STOP them!

Good post to the OP, and even though this loss was ugly, it's a learning experience. As far as running up the score and all of that nonsense, I have a potentially unpoular theory about that one. The Patriots are a team that feeds on mistakes and teams falling into their gameplan and out of their own. The way to beat them is sticking to your own gameplan and slowing the game down, much like beating the Colts when their offense was at top of the league. The thing is, once a team is behind many play catch up, causing QBs to force throws and panic, instead of controlling the clock and keeping the Patriot's offense off the field. This is exactly what the Colts did and caused them to be eaten alive.

However, most realize Andrew Luck is an intelligent QB and Arians will probably have a better gameplan going into their next meeting. I have this strange theory that maybe the Patriots added insult to injury in hopes of making the Colts overly emotional in their next meeting, whether it's this season or next. I believe this was also Peyton's problem with the Patriots game at Foxboro, he would be easily frustrated with early failings in the game and make abnormal mental mistakes throughout the game that the Patriots would capitalize on and lead them to victory. I am not saying the Colts will buy into this owning of the emotions, but I could see the Patriots playing a mental game to maintain advantage over them in future meetings. Especially with a team that has a bright future and potential like the Colts.

    • https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=4wVAee2z-aE   I don't mean to sound condescending or insulting. But its frustrating to me how hard it is to scout for one, and how often people are wrong. I'm wrong about expectations from players sometimes, and but with the exception of alshon Jeffries, my scouting predictions have been really good for about 7 years.    My favorite quote was saying morris Claiborne was a bumb and I put Casey heywars as my top 3 corner in the draft when about 6 or 7 were in front of him. I think he was my 2nd. Not to brag or nothing.    But if you dont see a bigger, and somehow stronger Dwight freeney out of this dude, I dont know what to tell you. This is an easy pick up, no trade needed at 15. He a day one starter   
    • Oh yeah genius. How many times do you see qbs, especially at WVU getting sacked in wildcat offenses. Its designed to get rid of the ball in seconds.    You can't judge of one game, and he played with a very high motor. Which is more than I van say about bejorn, give up on the play warner.    You guys are really that blind you can't see the Shir speed and acceleration off the snap?    You can't see the force and quickness of his spin moves?   You can't see his knack for rushin hands up.    You can't see the power in his bullrush? Are you kidding me?   And BTW, this is a breakdown video of every play he was involved in.   This is not a highlight tape. Highlight tapes are for kids. Breakdown videos are for ametuer nfl scouts. Real scouts have all the film.    Let me post a highlight video so you can see the differnce
    • I think it would also help to see if converted players (went from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 OLB, or vice versa) are riskier choices than players who stay in the same system. 
    • He's also noted for his coverage ability. But yeah I need to see what he does at the combine first. 
    • I agree. Like i said i have no issue in drafting a DE if it is BPA, just that i wouldnt single out the position as a "major need". I think it is definitely a need, but not on the same level as olb at the moment. Not to the same level where that if there was 1 olb and 1 de of similar grade available at our pick that i would choose the de over the olb. To me, for it to be a major need it would have to be to the point where i would be very unhappy if nothing was done at the position by the end of the offseason. I could live with DE position as it is. But I  would be livid if maggitt and Ayers are our starting OLBs week 1.   I think we are basically in agreement and just getting caught up in semantics. We are saying the same thing, im just on the left of it looking right and you are on the right looking left (if that makes any sense).
