colts vs bills Sunday

36 posts in this topic

Luck was asked when was the last time you lost a game by 5 touchdowns and he said "I don't know maybe pop warner"? Well I seriously doubt that Luck ever lost a game by that amount and I don't think he's going to play 2 bad games in a row without a big effort......meaning I think Luck will be super motivated in this game against Buffalo and I think that will show. As luck goes the Colts will go.

Buffalo can be had but beware of their offense. They have probably the best running back tandem in the NFL. Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller are the real deal. If they had an elite QB they would be scary. Their defense is near the bottom of the league.

I think Luck will go for another 300+ against the Bills defense. I have faith that our defense can hold the Bills running game to a respectable amount of yards, but they won't be running the ball playing from behind after Luck torches them on TD passes!

We will come back stronger than ever. Buffalo is a weaker team.

not significantly....

We'll bounce back. I think we're the better team, plus this game is at home. I do think that Buffalo will keep it close because they can score points.

Colts 27

Bills 23

If we can contain the run, and I feel we can, this game will be a blowout in our favor.

I'm not scared of there weapons outside of Spiller. I think they are all high caliber players, but I'm not scared of Stevie Johnson, Fitz, or Jackson.

If we can get out to an early lead, I think Fitzpatrick will make mistakes leading to our victory.

I feel the exact same way. :cool:

Do the same thing we did vs the Pats, contain the run.

I do think Stevie Johnson will give us fits especially if Davis is still banged up and not 100% there yet.

Our LBs better be flying to their RBs on those screen passes, otherwise the Bills will hit up a few big yardage plays with dumpoffs.

We'll need a pass rush this game. We sure didn't bring it with us to Foxboro. Otherwise, the Bills will be dangerous.

I believe we will win this game. It is a must have, everybody in that locker room knows it. If we want to make the playoffs we HAVE to beat the teams we can/should beat.

We have not lost two in a row. Let this not be the first time. I had chalked the Lions game as a L. So, we need this badly, IMO, to keep our playoff hopes alive. Otherwise, we could be staring at a 3 game losing streak.

I think we pull a close one 27-24

Andrew Luck seemed almost over-the-top angry with himself after this game.

I may be delusional, but I expect a blow out in this game based on the psychological factors, which for once does not relate to ChuckStrong. I think this game will tell us a lot of what to expect in the future from Mr. Luck.

Hard to tell how the team will react to the brutal beating we got in foxboro. I think we either come out flat or super motivated. I truly feel Andrew will be super motivated for this game to atone for what happened in the last game, so that in itself tells me we will win!

Due to the fact that I'm surrounded by jets fans and the Bills are in their division, I'll just repeat what I hear at work: The Bills are known for throwing away games they are suppose to win. Their D is infamous for giving up in the fourth quarter if it is nessasary for the D to make a stop to win the game.

Also, their quarterback is extremely hit or miss. He can be Tom Brady in one game, and then not show for the next. Or he can give you a run for the money all the way into the fourth quarter then just throws the game away. Ryan Fitzpatrick is very good, but too inconsistant, you don't know which game he's going to show up at.

They are the doormat of the AFC East for a long time and have made serious moves this off season to change that by spending a lot on new talent and resigning key players. The first half of the season has been disappointing, but it appears they are starting to get hot after just recently going toe to toe with the Patriots only losing in the last seconds of the game, and their recent win against Miami.

After spying on their message board, they believe they gonna destroy us since the pats just wooped us and they gave the pats a hard time in a narrow loss. The Bills are determained to end their decade and a half playoff drought and see us as a mere speed bump on that road to redemption.

I think we can woop them if we put pressure on their inconsistant QB and shut the running game down.

I expect Arians to run the ball a lot to start the game to limit Andrew's mistake and make him a game manager.

Depending on how well the defense plays it will dictate what we do the rest of the game. I will help to have Davis back and depth to the CB and we can see how Davis & Butler play together.

After seeing the way the lions are 9laying that game def looks like a loss

eah... Detroit is looking good. I'm hoping that they (Det. and Hou) beat each other up a lot in the 2nd half and the Texans win a squeaker... I want to see some tired and gimpy players on that Texans D and "lets lay down for the rest of the season" look on the face of the Lions and their coaching staff...

Lol you sure did get your wish there. They did beat the crap out of eachother and the Texans did edge by.

Detroit is going to dismantle our D though unfortunately. We will probably have to put up somewhere between 30-40 to win.

This is going to be a close one. I see the Bills point up some points on our shaky D. If Luck bounces back nicely we will win. If he makes a few mistakes this is going to be a tough game.

Yeah good point they edged it past the point of no return. Texans do have the eye of the tiger thing going on for them.

I'm not really looking forward to the Colts playing the Texans and Lions. However, I am looking forward to seeing them play the Cheifs lol.

Luck is going to have to have one heck of a finish to catch griffen for offensive rookie of year rg3 has been killing it his last two games

true... until these last couple games I had been downplaying RGIII's stats as a byproduct of not having to do as much, and that still holds true... he hasn't been asked to do as much as our guy, but he has made the best of his opportunities, especially the last two games... I think if Luck grits us into the playoffs with a couple impressive performances (surrounded by fellow rookies) he might win in spite of efficiency numbers, but it is hard to argue with the season RGIII is having.

I will say this... I think RGIII's sophomore slump will be much more severe than Luck's because he will be asked to run a full NFL playbook and Luck's situation will be better due to the chemistry he will be able to acquire with our young receivers and the other rookies on the team gaining valuable experience with the playbook... throw in a couple decent free agents and stud draft picks and the future seems brighter for the Colts in 2013 than the Skins, which, for me, will be a better determinant of whether we made the right choice in the draft (obviously I think we did).

I think the Lions are done after yesterday. They won't roll over, but they played like it was for their playoff lives yesterday, and righfully so, and to basically out play Houston, have the game on the foot of their kicker, and still lose... I think next week's game became a lot easier with the Lions loss.

I'm nervous about this game, to be honest. Some of you guys are seriously underestimating Buffalo's offense. While Fitzpatrick isn't what I'd call an elite QB, I don't think that really matters when you consider that our defense has made the likes of Gabbert, Weeden, Tannehill, Sanchez and Ponder look like decent starters at one point in the season. I'd say Fitzpatrick is better than all of those QB's, easily.

C.J. Spiller is who scares me the most, though. Think how inept Reggie Bush made our entire defense look on his TD run when we played the Dolphins. Spiller has that same capability. Buffalo also has, arguably the best screen game in the league, so I don't think it will be so easy as to rush Fitzpatrick all day and tee off on him. Gailey is one of the better signal callers in the league on offense. They will make adjustments.

The fact is, our defense is still very beatable, and if we go into this game playing stupid, undisciplined football on either side, Buffalo will walk away with the win. I think the gameplan on offense this week needs to be what it SHOULD'VE BEEN last week against the Pats. Ball control, short passes and heavy ground game. They can be run on, so we need to take advantage of that. If Arians calls another gun-slinging gameplan like he did last week, we will struggle. I can see Mario Williams and Dareus giving our O-line fits all afternoon if Arians continues to stubbornly favor the deep passing attack.

And some of us haven't, and see things similarly. We must with control and discipline. We cannot turn the ball over or give them short fields. We have to have a couple key 3rd down D plays, or takeaways. It is then I think we will gather the momentum that brings the 12th man into the win.

    • Thanks for your link above to such a fascinating article NCF. I keep coming back to something Shannon Sharpe always says on his new FS1 TV show called "Skip & Shannon"...Real meaningful social change always needs to make others uncomfortable in order to succeed & promote a large shift in daily society & Mr. Sharpe is exactly right. Nothing will change for the better without ruffling some feathers thru rebellion against the way things are. History has demonstrated this fact for decades & centuries. Relax, I'm not about to lead an angry mob with pitch forks & torches here.    The other thing I noticed is when the President of the Players Association said he reached out to Colin Kaep by phone for support I laughed because if the Niners released him tomorrow & Kaep wasn't in the league anymore, would Mr. Smith even care? I highly doubt it. We only care if that QB is on a football roster. The 49ers give him a platform to express his views globally. Take that access away & Colin virtually becomes irrelevant overnight as a celebrity with clout & a public figure of stature.    Bringing up boxer Mohammad Ali was fascinating too because he paid a heavy price for his views not to serve overseas in SE Asia, which pales in comparison to the minor heat Colin is enduring right now. It's not even close. 
    • These guys who kneel or sit for the anthem are PEACEFULLY protesting, they are not hurting a fly......It's MLK style protesting with nothing but being peaceful about it. They are not violent or hurting ANYONE directly. They are just expressing their personal views and some do care about those who are oppressed even if they themselves have money.   If you crack down on the players individuality too much down the road then you might as well call it the "National Fascist League."     Ratings may be down since a lot of late night games suck too. How many times this year have the Bears been on at night for example? And a lot of stars are out this year........and a few have retired like Manning who was a face of the league for so long. MNF this past week sucked with the Falcons destroying the Saints bad defense.   Brady is out for another week and I bet Pats games sky rocket in ratings with his return. JJ Watt is now out. Adrian Peterson is out. The list goes on.......   People get bored. And actually the peaceful protesting gives the NFL attention so in a way they should be thankful for it. If people don't watch since a few sit or kneel for the Anthem then I give up on those people and it just further proves the point of someone like Kaepernick. 
    • Problem here is most fans only see the te as pass catching.  They don't factor in blocking at all.     Check out gores to run and see where Allen took his dude
    • I wake up at 4:30 for work, so 4 more hours of sleep and eating breakfast during a Colts game sounds fanfreakingtastic to me!
    • JV....   It appears you're right.     I just surfed the net looking for information one way or the other.     And here is an interview with DeMaurice Smith the head of the NFLPA,  and in the interview he says there is nothing in the CBA giving the players a right to protest.       Interesting.    Directly contradicts what I heard.   But if Smith is saying it,  it has to be true.      I'll link the interview....   https://www.thenation.com/article/what-the-nfl-players-union-chief-has-to-say-about-colin-kaepernicks-protest/   For some unknown reason,  the website is not letting my cut and paste the quote...    something about formatting issue....    but the answer is the 2nd paragraph after the question about what would the union do to support the players.....            
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
