Penalties! We avoid penaltys, we should win, Detroit will give the game to us with their own penalties. Mark my words!

The O-line and the D-line, we need to be able to protect Andrew long enough for him to be productive, and we will also need to put alot of pressure on stafford, otherwise he will kill us.

That would help, what also helps is the refs giving you touchdowns you didn't earn. If we can get one of those, maybe we can pull off a win too.

Yeah if your coach can maintain his cool and not throw flags when he has confessed to knowing the rules very well, that would also help. What about OT? Maybe keeping an offense that has dogged you all day out of the endzone and away from the goal post can also contribute to another victory.

Yes in the heat of the moment you can lose your cool and do something you know you shouldn't. Everybody knows that rule is garbage and is going to be changed in the offseason. It has already been addressed but not going to make the change in mid season. As far as overtime that game should have never reached overtime. You can thank your lucky stars that you were gift wrapped a TD and be thankful that you left Detroit with a W. That game goes right up there next to the GB vs Seattle game. Both deserve an * next to the W

Considering the fact that that play happened on what, 2nd down? In the third quarter...anything could have happened between then and the end of the game. Who's to say we wouldn't have forced a fumble on the ensuing kickoff or punt return? What would have happened if Suh had been called at all for any of those dirty plays he had in that game? We can play the what if game, but the fact of the matter is that we won, fair and square. We even gave the Lions an extra quarter to score, and they weren't up to the challenge.

Laughable at best :lol: I will leave this convo now, because of course you're gonna think you won it fair and square. I'm sure Seattle still thinks they won that game fair and square too.

Yeah, and you're not biased at all in this matter. Kind of like all the Detroit fans who don't believe Suh kicked when it was obvious. Oh well. Good luck Sunday, if you know what I mean.

I'm not a GB fan and I have an uncle that lives in Seattle, so if anything I would want them to win for him, but I also want a team to win fairly. Anytime that the Colts have been "given" a game due to officiating or anything else of the matter I don't go around saying we won fair and square. Sure I'm not a Texans fan, but had you earned that TD you were given I would say congrats, you deserved the win. In this case that didn't happen. Sure we can play the what ifs of it all, but the fact of the matter is you were given a TD that shouldn't have been given. Could you, would you get that TD in another way, maybe.....but you didn't have to.

If we won the game it must have meant we put enough pressure on Stafford that he couldn't get the ball downfield.

Stingy red zone D, and be even or win the turnover battle. Minimize mental mistakes.

Three things:

1) Protect Andrew Luck

2) No turnovers

3) Defense needs to step up. We need a lot of three and outs! This includes keeping pressure on Stafford.

1 vital Amendment to your game day plan QuizBoy: At halftime, tell Johnson & Suh to retrieve some athletic tape to secure their ankles & then shove them in an equipment manager's closet. Problem solved. :thmup:

Hahaha, I am out of likes sir. They are the keys to the game in my opinion. Slow down Johnson (because he won't be shutdown) and limit his grabs, double Suh whenever possible, and this game could prove to be very interesting.

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      We can disagree. That's perfectly fine obviously but I'd still like to know why you disagree with anything I said regarding my first two paragraphs. I mean its a fact that O Linemen who have had bad combines have went on to have great careers. What will help in Clarks transition is if he shows the ability to process information and translate that to the football field more than any combine numbers will (For the record I was specifically speaking of most of the drills with the exception of bench press and position drills NOT everything else that goes into it like interviews and med checks. That would be absurd to think that of course).   As to specifically his arm length.......That wont help him consistently enough unless he learns how to use them better. They certainly don't mean he has a higher upside or be a big factor on if he becomes good or great even. They will help him against the same quality of player he is currently which is really below average but not horrible(To be specific...against D Lineman that cant separate). But against quality D Linemen he will have a hard time regardless of arm length until he gets the fundamentals down
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Whenever I read stuff like your first two paragraphs I seriously wonder about how you process information......   Let's just say we'll have to agree to disagree........     because I don't want to get into it with you and crash the darn website!!      (Sigh.....)  
    • Have you seen Johnny Manziel?
      Yea, well not my fault I didn't click a topic reading, "Am I reading this right"
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      We aren't talking about wr here. An O Linemans measurable wont make THAT much of a difference....including arm length consistently enough. Tony Ugoh had far better measurables in just about every category and they sure did not help him. Now he went in the 2nd round but was also talked about as a possible 1st rounder (Clark was talked about by some as a 1st-2nd round pick...again as was Ugoh.). His measurables sure did not help him. He can move well (Clark) but relies to much on his long arms.   Now I do think he has a shot but that has nothing to do with measurables and more to the fact that he is mobile. He really doesn't have a higher ceiling because of measurable...not at the O Line position anyway. He has a high ceiling because of his mobility...which don't always translate to the Combine. Lower floor because he has so much to learn.   I don't mind that he was picked in the 3rd even though I saw him as a 4th rounder. I mind that their was better players in the 3rd we could have had. If he was the BPA in the 3rd (apparently he was on the Colts board seemingly based on measurables more than anything else the way the Colts scouts talked) then take him, which the Colts did. I dont fault the Colts brass at all for going with who they thought was apparently BPA......I fault them for apparently thinking HE WAS the BPA.   Hopefully he works out and eventually replaces Reitz when he retires or starts playing bad. I'd love it if that happened.....However I think the odds are much higher Clark is talked about as another Grigson bust. We can revisit this in 4 years and if I'm wrong I'll make a board about it and publicly admit how bad I whiffed on Clark...I might forget  but I sincerely hope someone reminds me if I do. I do however feel I'm best at scouting O Linemen (Though I whiffed on Hayworth Hicks horribly as an undrafted FA in 2012...But I was really new then)

      After tonight/this year, the prospect of avoiding the Warriors en route to a Finals berth could be very appealing to Durant.  I still don't see it happening, but we can dream

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
