15 posts in this topic

Welcome to Twodays Twosday Twofer:

1. Do you think the Colts humbling loss to the New England start a losing skid that ends the Colts playoff hopes - OR - provides a learning experience which galvanizes their forward progress one game at a time ??

2. Which was MORE shocking this past weekend:

A. The Houston Texans being taken to OT by the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars (at home by the way)

- OR -

B. The final score of the Colts loss to New England ??

Was not shocked by our loss to New England, historically Brady takes apart Rookies and other QBs. He has beaten Manning more times than lost to him despite how good Manning is. Had hoped for a win, but thought more likely this would be the result, we are too young of a team yet. We will still be good and already are for this season, take the rest one game at a time and hope for the best, Still think we will see the playoffs but don't expect a miracle from there this year.

as to #2, more shocked by Jacksonville putting up such a fight with Houston.

First question.... the 2nd answer, this provides learning experience to move forward and make the playoffs....

Second question.... 'A'.... much more surprised that J'Ville nearly beat Houston than I was to get blown out by New England.

Much more.

Question 1

I think the loss provides a learning experience. As to whether they make the playoffs, it's too soon for me to predict; taking it one game at a time.

Question 2

Jacksonville and Houston going into overtime surprised me more. At least that game gives me more hope. If Jacksonville can do so well against Houston on their turf, then Indy definitely has a chance.

1. I'd say more the second option than the first, but I can't say that it'll all be sunshine and rainbows at practice this week.

2. B/ I know we would likely lose, but I did not expect to get as manhandled as we were.

I wasn't shocked by Jacksonville almost beating Houston. Because now they got a QB Henne is good Gabbert sucks and yes it makes that much of a difference.

No and A.

I saw a scenario where New England could blow us out I didn't see the jags hanging with the texans at all.

No, we are fighters. We don't lay down or throw in the towel for anybody.

Neither the NE or Houston scenario surprised me actually. Crazy stuff happens every week in the NFL. A W is always a W. Ugly or pretty just cross the finish line & the Patriots & the Texans did just that.

    • ESPN shows a troublesome Colts drafting trend...
      If you think I understated the quality of the team around Luck --- fine.   Then,  if not poor,   at best,   average.   You write our offensive roster is well fortified.    That's despite the fact that we have yet to build an average o-line (maybe we get it right this year)   and we have yet to establish a decent running game (maybe we get it right this year)      That doesn't sound like a well fortified offensive roster this year.   Final thought.....    I hope this exchange has been come across as argumentative.    That was a not my intent. I wanted only to offer a different perspective.    I have great respect for your opinion but wanted to note that on this particular issue,  we don't see this one the same way.....    
    • Extremly early prediction...
      Staff may love harrison and he might have been a better guard in the old scheme but he doesn't fit as a zbs guard like haeg does. I think we can rock 5 and can always pull one from p.s if one goes down
    • Cardinals , Cubs and all MLB 2016
      That was whacky but I will take it. Cubs win 9-8. Wasn't Jakes best performance but he is now 9-0. Anytime you can win a series in St Louis that is big. 31-14 on the ol year now through 45 games.
    • Haeg got first team rels at RG over Clark?
      Clark doesn't have a guard skill set. At all.   Haeg, to me, is a guy who can backup four positions, like Joe Reitz. I think he's more pro ready than Clark, even if he doesn't necessarily have the upside -- Clark has better feet, and of course more length; both need work in the weight room.
    • Nate Irving Lost 20 Pounds?
      I like the ILBs, actually. Would have liked to keep Freeman and get rid of Jackson, but between Moore, Irving and Sylvestre, I think there's some talent on the roster.

      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.

      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!
