Recommended Posts

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, 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.

    • The reason they both look tired by 3rd quarter is because they are on the field way too much throughout the game.
    • They just tied the record for the second most sacks given up in the entire history of the Colts and folks, that goes back a long way. They can't see their feet much less a light at the end of the tunnel. A good coach solves problems like many teams have done this season. The Colts get worse and that means either the staff is incompetent or they simply don't give a rats rear. Pagano's post game press conference after the disaster at home with the Jags showed he does not care. He was sarcastic and avoided every question insulting the reporters just doing their jobs. When you get hammered at home you have only one thing left to do and that is make n attempt to be respectful of the reporters who will turn and tell the fans what you said and how you said it. Ignorant Brissett said "Is there a problem with this team"? Yes there is smart guy and you a part of it. Hilton hammers the OL in public. All signs point to Pagano's lack of authority over his players. He want to be daddy and Santa Clause to football players. That has never worked at any level. 
    • We can probably even argue the more power he's been given and the freer he's been during his tenure the more his weaknesses have shined and overtaken the performance of the team. In a weird twisted kind of way Grigson might have been a balance to the buddy-buddy relationship between Pagano and the players. Right now wheels are falling off both on the field and off the field(players blaming whole position groups for the  failings of the team in front of sensation-hungry journalists, etc). I previously thought Pagano was an OK coach who simply not good enough to go against the best of the best. Right now I'm revising my view and leaning more and more toward the conclusion that he's not even as good as I used to give him credit for. From preparation to personnel decisions, to game management to player development... where is he even remotely successful? I don't see it. To me this looks like a total and complete failure on all fronts by Pagano. 
    • They do get paid to guess.    They are drafting potential.    His picks didn't live up to their potential.    He got fired.    It's a very common story
    •   Actually according to overthecap.com we’ve got the most cap space for 2018. That, combined with a healthy Luck, a top 5 draft pick, Chris Ballard, a good nucleus of players, an impending coaching staff change from top to bottom (hopefully), and an aging/retiring older generation of QBs that have dominated the AFC, I believe the future is bright in Indy.
