steelers and titans lose

21 posts in this topic

yes it does the team to keep your eyes on is the Bengals they are getting hot at the right time and they have a pretty decent schedule down the stretch.

It's really coming down to the Colts, Steelers, Bengals, and maybe the Chargers and Dolphins for two spots. The good news the Colts are on top of the mountain right now but the Colts probably have the hardest schedule remaining of those teams. With that said if they beat the Titans at home and beat KC on the road that probably puts them in.

I was just going to post that about the Bengals. I think we lose in Detroit and Houson. KC on the road is going to be tough but a must win. Hope that Houston is resting players at the end of the season, and we may squeak in.

I really think if we just take care of business in the two games that we should win in the Titans game and KC game we get in. It might be as the six seed but it's in. It's going to be really hard for two AFC Wildcard teams to get to ten wins and one of them not be the Colts. The Bengals or the Steelers have the best shot at it but they still have to play each other so I don't see both doing it and both still have to play the Ravens. Miami and the Chargers would to win out to do it and I just don't see that in fact if the Chargers lose to the Ravens today they might very well be out of it. Honestly Miami and Chargers are just kinda hanging on IMO and it's really a three team race for two spots and with two of those teams in the same division I don't think both will make it which improves the Colts chances.

Yeah, it's ours to lose or win. SD is still a threat. But the Bengals are coming on. I don't think we have an easy game left. KC gave the Broncos all they could handle today. Still, if at the start of the season someone said we'd end up 7-9, I would have said they were crazy.

This is quite true the "good" things about the remaining schedule is the two teams have to play each other.

Well no game in the NFL is easy but the Colts SHOULD beat the Titans at home and KC on the road. If they don't you can easily say the Colts don't deserve to be a playoff team. Those are games that if you are playoff team you have to win.

Keep in Denver is a divisional foe of KC. I look at that no different than when the Jags would play us close when they were having a bad season and we were having a good season. Divison games aren't always the best look at what a team really is. With that said we have our own division foe left on the schedule who would love nothing more than to be the team that knocks the Colts out of the playoffs in the Titans.

More importantly, the Bengals won and are one of the hotter teams in the AFC.

Dalton is playing as well as any QB in the league over the past few weeks.

realistically....the Colts HAVE TO BE ahead now..because of the two games with Houston where we'll probably be 10-point underdogs...

..and that game at Detroit is a big worry

Denver's win streak may force Houston (which could lose to NE) to play the regulars in that final game of the season...

..but we have 7 wins and 10 gets us in....Its a good place to be

at this point the only way we don't make it is if we don't deserve it. We should be in there, we have a padded lead now. We need to win ONE game we shouldn't. I'm counting on W's against Titans and Cheifs. Need one more for a clinch. We beat detroit we're going.

SD plays Cinci next week that should be an interesting game especially if SD can get this OT win.

SD is not a good team. This isnt even the classic underachieving Chargers. They just arent very talented on top of being poorly coached.

Cincy should handle them.

The way I see it shaking out is:

Colts (9-7) -- 6th seed

Steelers (9-7) -- maybe 10-6? -- 5th seed

Bengals (9-7)

Chargers (7-9)

Dolphins (7-9)

I have you guys losing to Detroit and getting swept by Houston, but Detroit is a winnable game and no reason to think you can't pull one out against Houston if you play well. Never know in a division game what could happen.

To me Bengals have a tough schedule + they play the Steelers again.

@ Chargers

Cowboys

@ Eagles

@ Steelers

Ravens

I definitely foresee a couple losses, Colts will probably lose a couple more as well. I just think they really need to take care of business vs the Titans and Cheifs. We have no idea which Lions team will show up and also who knows if the Texans will rest some players at a place they have a very difficult time winning at in Indy.

Things are looking good so far but just gotta take things week by week and put all their focus on figuring out a way to beat Detroit.

    • Hey /m/COLTS/m/.......  What is the meaning of the badge?  Is it firefighter?
    • Good question.  The answer is the NFL changes its substance abuse policy to follow society and Federal law.  The NFL and NFLPA recently  collectively bargained just this issue to reduce punishments and include more 'chances'. So, the punishments on THC have been made more lenient to keep pace with changing societal views.  But until it is legal for recreational or medicinal use in every state and decriminalized in Federal law, it will not be off the banned substance list.  But the NFL will adjust rules/punishment over time until such point.  That  point is not here yet. Here's Herm Edwards take as of now-   “I think our league is trying to have a set of rules and regulations that an athlete has to live up to, and in order to be part of the league, you have to live up to them,’’ said former head coach Herm Edwards, now an ESPN studio analyst. “You may not like the rules, but there are consequences to violating them. Right now, in our league, it’s on the list of banned substances."   It seems the substance abuse test at the combine and in the off season between April 20 and August 9 is almost a player I.Q. test of sorts, and there is a penalty to 'not study' and 'flunk' it.   The players know, and make career decisions when ingesting items that are not allowed.  They can't plead ignorance as a defense. They know.   Do teams / NFL outright oppose using MJ?  Not really it seems, and it may well be a better alternative to binge drinking. But they both do oppose testing positive for it.    Similar to do I oppose my wife (only hypothetical here!) trying to make it through a yellow light and actually catch the red?  As long as there are no accidents, not really.  What I do oppose is getting a $260 citation in the mail for her catching that Red and captured by a red light photo camera.   During the season use, the player will regulate it or lose his job. In the narrow off season testing window, they want to see who can man up and get/stay clean until their test is completed.  Nothing more. And they usually test at a team event or by position groups on a team (for all players not in the Drug Program), so there is ample warning signs of when the test may well occur.   We will see if it gets change again at the next CBA negotiations.  Or even earlier... as recently happened.  but no change on the horizon as of now.
    • perhaps but I felt big Art needed a little help. i have a weakness to help those with "broken wings". this forum has a tendency to over-react sometimes. Well, maybe more than sometimes. but yea, maybe so but if teams cut players for every infraction and every time fans wanted them cut, Blue would have to suit up.
    • He was "let go" mostly because he retired.      Got a good paying gig with ESPN.     That is his long-term future.   As to any other reasons......    his body was breaking down as he got punished last season,  so his performance couldn't hold up.      I'm sure you noticed no other NFL team made him an offer to be their back-up.     They found a back-up (Tolszein) who the Colts think can do roughly the same for less $$.       It was just time for the change.    Hasselbeck had to move on.
    • So do you guys think he was let go because of age or cap hit ($)? i know he's as old as Moses, but I thought he played as well (probably better) than we could hope to get from either Backup on current roster. granted, he's a "manager", but there's no way either of these two on roster give Luck off the field what Hasselbeck did. or perhaps the team is looking for a younger backup?  As a backup QB behind a franchise QB, Experience is bigger than talent in my view.  Assuming you don't expect to lose your guy for 9 games which hopefully was an anomaly. i know he looked a lil slow out there but more than made up for it with game smarts.
