Football Outsider: Colts playoff pretenders

Recommended Posts

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

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.

    • Looks to me those 3 will be fine together.
    • Honestly speaking, the colts have been dominating teams (except the rams) in the first half of games, including the seahawks game. If they can just translate their first half success to the second half, we would be in great shape.   I think that finally happens this week.  
    • A really tough one this week as you have one team that is up and down from one game to the next and one team that is up and down one half to the next!   I think the key to this game is who takes the lead.  If Jags get the lead, they just run the ball down our throats to eat the clock and make first downs, we then have to throw into, in my opinion, the best secondary in football, to receivers who can hardly be called "consistent".  If we take the lead and manage to stuff the run (which I think our defense is capable of) and the ball has to go into Bortles' hands, we can win this.   My optimistic prediction, Colts win 27-24 and finally hold onto a lead which we take into half time!
    • We're choking with an injured team all while using a back up QB? LOL Makes sense.
    • I just wish they would give Luck what they gave Peyton, complete control.  You want him to be the franchise see if he is capable to run the offense himself.  Tom Moore always said he would give "suggestions" to Manning and many of times he would still run a completely different play.  See if Luck can get some of that as well.  Not to easy I get it because Manning is one of a kind but Luck is a smart guy with knowledge of defenses.  Give him control and watch how some short routes start to happen when pressure comes.  Just a man being hopeful I guess!
