Just read the week 13 ranking and the Colts are at #10--right behind Green Bay....and here I thought they beat Green Bay earlier this year.

Hmm, what does that say for the rest of the league?

I mean, we've been playing well, but have also been inconsistent, especially on the road. I guess I just don't feel like we're a #10 team yet. Then again, if I don't feel that way now, and we end up where we think we're headed (SB contender), wow. Just WOW.

We can certainly solidify this with upcoming road wins, but, boy, with everything new, and the inconsistency, what a mediocre year for the league on the whole.

Oh, I now see that Olsen is returning to practice this week.

That'd explain it.

I think green bay is a better team, it just happened that we beat them.

Or you think that the jets and jaguars should be ahead of us in the power rankings??

We have the same record as Green Bay. And they just got stomped.

Green Bay is better than us, though. And I don't care about power rankings, but I get how someone would wonder why they're one step ahead of us.

I get how a woman who doesn`t follow football might wonder why GB is ahead of us.

lets face it , this is 1 strange year , u have good , u have bad , u have this quasi whatever they are midle

any weekend we can see a top team like texans almost lose 2 in a row in OT to Jaxsonville then should of but that crazy Lion challenge call saved the game , so any week any team can win and any given Sunday & this year it is really true

We beat packers and the next week they totally destroyed texans , Just one crazy year , rankings are a list for us all to look at and discuss but this year above all else u cant really use as game predictors

This is a testament to the NFL's ability to keep the league competitive, despite the size of the markets. There are no "Yankees" in the NFL, no Miami Heat... This is a league where you can't buy rings... the union supporter in me doesn't like it, but the sports fan loves it..

Thank God for that, even the officials or booth review cant mess that up

It's not Mediocrity, it's parity.

My only issue was my question, the rest of the list is fine after all it's all just opinion anyway.

10 seems a bit high. Many great teams in the NFC will miss the playoffs just because there is so much talent in that conference. And also, despite how proud I am of the progress of this team, we are very inconsistent and can't win games on the road against tough opponents. However when I look at the teams below us I don't feel comfortable saying any of those teams are definitely better. Some match up well against us.

regardless... Wow 10th. Each week it's a new surprise with this team. 5-11 I said. Psh!

Nice work, introducing Socratic Method to a fan forum.

Let's see... The answer ought to be Houston, at which point it can be pointed out that GB beat them. So if the Colts beating GB is reason to be ranked higher, the Colts should be #1!!!

The logic may be faulty, but I like it anyway.

OK... To be a little more serious, head to head matchups may help determine seeding at seasons end, but have no place in a discussion about power rankings. If you ask yourself, honestly, to pick the team you think is better of the 2, I would think most rational fans would think GB would win, most of the time, on a neutral field, if such a game was played today.

I'm very excited about what these Colts have done this year, and am a huge believer in where the team is headed, but its still very young and mistake prone (especially on the road). If it was up to me, I'd just enjoy the ride, and stop worrying about power rankings, until (maybe) next year.

10 is very high....We're about 15-16...we've benefitted from a soft schedule so far..but that changes next month

    • I missed it. I'm watching the Mets game and there has been no mention of this today.  I hope I get to see it later. I like both players very much. And Mike helped us Mets fans briefly forget about 9/11 with his unforgettable home run the first game back after the tragic event. I was happy to be there to see it.    Congrats to Mike and Junior.
    • I agree with equating the substance abuse test to somewhat of an IQ test. It is also a discipline test. Those who are not too bright or disciplined will get caught.   It seems that players take amphetamines to give them an edge or greater confidence in games.  Most will not use them in the offseason because there are no games to be played. So, those who take amphetamines are likely not to test positive because they are not tested during the season. Right?     I am definitely not a proponent of legalizing marijuana, but the NFL's position on this is akin to the marijuana laws that have gotten poor and less educated folks imprisoned for possession.  If the NFL is testing for illicit drugs, then they should test for them randomly anytime in the year, not only from April to August. JMHO
    • Just watched Mike Piazza and my favorite baseball player of all time Ken Griffey Jr. get inducted into Coopers Town! Very well deserved for both men! Congrats! Great memories watching The Kid as a kid. Best baseball player I have ever seen play  
    • **UPDATE**   I set the Draft Order by reverse rankings from last year. As of note, I used the playoff results and not the final season results for setting the draft order.   As it stands here is the draft order by Team Name: 1. Punters be Winning too 2. Team IndyD4u 3. Mike Strahans Tooth Gap 4. Luck Be A Lady 5. Team Coltman 6. Indy Bluefire 7. Swoope There It Is 8. Go Pack Go 9. Phillip my Ball to 12.5 PSI 10. Team Hulce   I also edited the LM Note a slight bit.  Instead of suggesting replacing a WR for a Flex, I changed it to replacing a TE for a Flex.  This is only a suggestion and not what will happen.  Must be approved by a supermajority 7/10.  p   If there are teams that do not respond by deadline or do not wish to resume, they will be removed and spots will open up.  This means Draft order spots will open up.  Starting from #1 position down, you will be given the option to either move UP one or DOWN one spot, depending on what is open around you.     After all positions are determined, new entrants will get to select their spots from  the remaining available; in the order of reply to this topic.   Tentatively set the draft date to Sept. 3rd at 9pm.  Obviously this will change, but wanted to get it set up for now.        
    • If we get the run game going and make more of an effort to run the ball that will help some.....Otherwise I'm expecting a 20th or worse defense yards per game average
