Football Outsider: Colts playoff pretenders

85 posts in this topic

In the AFC South Blog, Paul K made a point about the Colts' opponents' records that made me really start thinking about the accuracy of strength of schedule. He pointed out that if the Colts had not beaten their seven opponents, then their overall record would be 38-39 or .494 (instead of 31-46 or .403). That made me think that if the Colts were worse, their opponents would be better on paper but probably not in reality. Point is, I like stats but they are just one part of the story. However, as I alluded to in an earlier post, if I still had to bet on the Colts winning or losing in the first round of the playoffs, I'd have to go with lose, and I have no problem with that because I never truly expected to be seriously thinking we'd be in the playoffs. I'm just going to keep enjoying the ride!

Hey, I NEVER thought we would beat Green Bay this year either. Maybe by playoff time the Colts are clicking like a well oiled machine.

It's unlikely we win a game... But Tim Tebow and the Broncos did it... It will be good just to be there

Vince Verhei says we are not playoff caliber and destined for a quick and early exit.

That is just a hateful article... the writer totally dismisses what Indy has done.

whatever.... he can watch us on wildcard weekend upset someone.

Why? Indy got blasted by a bad Jet team... what are you gonna do?

Chicago... Indy was in that game into the 3rd Q.

Jax... Indy had it in the bag... HAD....

NE.... Indy was right there at halftime... turnovers and drops killed us.

Why can't this YOUNG team get it done? I think this is a very dangerous team going forward.

      Haeg is a better prospect than Clark btw

      Depending on how terrible Sanchez plays, Denver's season might be a lost cause before it begins.   If Sanchez pretty much blows the first 5 games and it's painfully obvious he's holding the team back, throw the kid in. Trial by fire. Give Sanchez a chance, but don't stick with him all year and throw the season if he's going to flat out suck. Who knows? Maybe a change in venue will light a fire under Sanchez.    If that D is anywhere near the level it was last season they might be able to carry any QB and offense all the way again. Regardless of how inept the offensive unit plays.
