Great exciting game and I am glad we came out with the W! BUT who in the heck let Vaughn try and cover Johnson that was embarrassing. Vaughn should not be on the field I am sorry I think we need to sign Routt if we need help at CB cause Vaughn is terrible but again the win was great and HOW ABOUT THAT LUCK KID!

This season. This team.

I am in love. And have been in love since early on.........

People have thought I was crazy but this team is WILD. You can never count them out. You just can't. They are just ridiculously fun to watch and root for.

It's Andrew's version of the Tampa Bay Monday Night Miracle. It's one we'll be talking about for a very long time.

What.....a........game.

Another 4th quarter miracle that would rival the Packers win. If only Luck could perform like that all day. TY Hilton impressed me (again!). I was actually content with Cassius Vaughn today, he may have been better than Vontae. Maths and Freeney were bad. Ballard was good once he found his feet. The entire O-line SUCKED all night. Our run defense was great, very happy with freeman, Connor and Angerer.

First half: Tend not to be great

3rd quarter: Tend to be a little sucky

4 quarter: Incredible

I was checking the game on my phone the whole time.

Honestly, after the Bell run I stopped paying attention to the game.

Then I heard about the Brazil TD & I was like," Well maybe Luck could pull it off."

Saw the last Detroit drive on TV and was baffled at 3 straight run plays by Detroit when their running game was doing nothing.

The last drive I was watching the chat room. I lost my mind when they won.

8-4 after an abysmal 2-14 year? I never would have thought that.

I wouldn't call it a complete Miracle. Great win by the Colts no doubt but in the end the Lions made some key mistakes that really did them in. They had the ball with about four minutes to go up two scores and elected to throw twice and had incomplete passes both times. Had they run there the Colts would have run out of time at the end of the game.

With that said credit to the Colts for pulling one out of the fire. 8-4 and this team is going to the playoffs. An unreal game to go along with what has been an unreal season!

From reading most things from people.

Davis was bad coming back from injury.

Luck had an off game til the 4th quarter.

Ballard & Brown were more successful running to the right than left.

O-line was bad.

As with most comebacks of this type, the winning team nearly always takes advantage of the door being left open a crack by the opponent. Same with PM's Tampa Bay miracle. Good teams take what is given... :thmup:

Lol, I would audition, but I don't have the arm. I don't think I could hit the ground with the ball.

I did a backspin on a hard wood floor if that gives you any idea how crazy excited I was during the last drive of the game.

Does anyone else get that feeling that with Luck at the helm, anything is possible?

I used to have this feeling before with a certain QB..........

Nothing is over until the game clock expires...Focus, concentration, resiliency, & never say die...

Please don't say Chuck Pagano good will had anything to do with this victory either. Thank you. No #ChuckStrong sentiment here, merely solid team execution on the field...

We had no business winning that game...but we did! Stunned look on the Lions and their fans faces and the jubilant Colts celebration said it all. Andrew Luck comes through in the clutch!

    • I know it depends on how he plays. And I think he is going to play awfully.. but we will see.
    • I think it had to do with the fact that any little injury has to be on the report with one of the designations. so it was a way of basically saying it's something minor but he will play. It was supposed to give a better picture as to the availability of a player. I can see Teams like the Patriots using "questionable" like they used probable in previous years. Now every week Gronk and Brady will be listed as questionable. Seems infuriating for fantasy football,  as well as for Teams trying to cater gameplans around certain players. 
    • I just like the Rod Woodson school of reporting/approach I guess where you are confident in your experience, do your own thing, don't let other personalties manipulate your POV, & you basically ignore all the twitter social media crap out there. I hope Wayne follows this model of broadcasting protocol & JJ Watt too when he's done playing ferocious, pass rusher too.    Yeah I know, Mr. 99 reasons is on Twitter & FaceBook, which is alright since he always handles himself the right way. Keep plugging away at rehab JJ. Love ya man! The league ain't the same without ya...Heal fast okay? Just kidding! 
    • Robinson is really an unknown commodity at this point. No one knows if he was pushing for a payday last yr or if he actually just hit his stride in the NFL. It also could just be that he needed a better supporting cast than he had in New Orleans (it's not like they areknown for their defense).    But all things considered,  I suppose this is similar to what Washington did with Josh Norman,  as he really only had 1, maybe 1.5 good seasons in Carolina.  Only difference is our cap hit is much lower and Robinsons ceiling isn't quite as high. If they have reason to be optimistic about it so do we.    Also I'm not sure i trust grigson signing offensive line depth. He hasn't managed to get a good free agent lineman yet. But I guess even a broken clock has to be right twice a day. Probably wouldn't have hurt to bring someone in on a small contract. 
    • I get what you're saying RTB & to be frank, there's nothing I'd love to see more then to have Reggie rip Deion Sanders a new one since his condescending smugness always rubs me the wrong way & royally ticks me off. I just deplore his over the top bravado. I find this quality charming in Rex Ryan but I wanna smack #21 hard every time his belittling comments rear their ugly head. Marshall Faulk is much more fair & balanced than Deion ever is.    The one I always have a crisis of conscious over is analyst Shaun O'Hara because I love the NY Giants lineman because he's very funny & great at breaking down plays, but he always slams the Colts line on TV for as long as I can remember. He's not malicious; I just don't think our o-line is as horrific as he likes to claim that it is on a frequent basis.    Getting back to Wayne, I agree you should never forget where you came from & a bias for the Colts is fine as long as Reggie can admit what our true vulnerabilities are because you never get better as a team burying your head in the sand pretending your weaknesses don't exist. Reggie knows this.
