Even though I still had the game on I had gone away from the GDT and was checking on how the University of Southern IKndiana Screaming Eagles basketball teams were doing so far this year.

I was just watching the Colts game!!! For the first time, I had this excitement that I felt when Peyton was going down for a game winning drive for the Colts and I felt it for Luck and the Colts this time. Being honest here, it gave me goosebumps!!! :)

Ashamed to say I turned it when we were down big in the 4th. Wasn't on here posting doom and gloom. Just thought their d-line was getting us to rattled. Oh yeah and that guy megaton. Jumped on to check score to find out we won. Seriously, so threw myself on the ground and beat the crap out of myself for not hanging in their CHUCKSTRONG like our boys did! Never again will I doubt!

Well... I was watching this Colts team very Intensly having my doubts that they could pull such a thing off. Then very calmy and swiftly it seemed we strike for two touch down in about 4 min. And on the final drive I was about to have a heart attack up untill the score. Still trying to calm down. Simply amazed again and getting tought by this team to never doubt them or not believe in them because they prove me wrong, and they Believe so thats what matters.

Sitting in front of the TV, running over game-winning scenarios in my mind. I didn't see many. :)

Scoring on the bomb before the 2:00 warning was crucial.

was watching it at a bar with some Colts buddies ive met out here in Portland.

I almost fell off my bar stool when Reggie almost caught that TD. I made sure I was standing up after that. I probably would have face planted if I kept sitting on that last play.

Hanging Christmas lights like I had promised and running up and down the ladder to go peak my head through front door to see what was happening. Last 4 minutes though I wasn`t budging! Awsome, awsome day! GO Colts!

I was collapsing on the floor of my living room as that pass got knocked out in the back of the end zone on 1st down. Much yelling ensued on the final plays.

I had switched over to the NFL redzone, watching the Rams-Niners and Bears-Seahawks going into OT. The redzone then switched to three screens-- Colts being the third game. Needless to say, I switched back just in time to see THE DRIVE. What a play at the end. Heart attack time. Must admit I was praying "please let us score a touchdown" and yes, I did say "thank you" when we did. Not onlyh was the TD cool, but did you all catch how quickly Andrew became a blocker to ensure the run the the end zone. Can't wait to go to the game next week. Our fans will definitely be pumped to the max.

I jumped and yelled louder than I can ever remember yelling for a Colts game. Even my dog went crazy.

I must confess to saying it was over when there was about 6 minutes left and we had to punt again.....sometimes a team just wills itself to win, and we've done that about 4 times this year.

I was at work, but I taped the game and watched it when I got home. I would have been upset if I had missed it. I'll probably watch the ending again. The whole thing was nothing short of amazing!

I went to sleep out of boredom at halftime and woke up with 8 min to go in the 4th. I grumbled for a few minutes, then woke up around 4:00 left. OMG - we are back in the mode where if behind 2 scores with 4 or 5 minutes to go - it's not over.....

I am still trying to fully get my head around being behind 2 scores with 2:40 left, and a rookie GM, rookie interim HC, rookie QB, and mostly rookies and 1st year guys on the field.. ..... AND we Win!!!

I don't yet understand how we did that ... but, I am Tremendously enjoying trying to get it.

Getting ready to go to the gym and vent my frustration over what I considered to be a lost cause at the time.

I was down, then we scored to bring it to within 5...then the Lions got a first down and I thought it was all over. But when the punt went out of bounds at the 25, I thought "just maybe..." I was at the 1st JAX game where Luck did his magic only for the D to let him down, and then he almost did it again. And I've seen the game winning drives this season, so I thought we might have a shot (but I wasn't holding my breath). So, I leaned forward on my couch and began chewing my nails (cuticles are killing me right now)...watched it unfold, and on the winning TD I jumped and yelled "YEAH!!" so loud it scared my dog...What a game. Defining road win IMO, Detroit had this game won and they couldn't put it away. Part of it was them finding a way to lose, but we still had to go out and win the darn game!

I was watching it at home. CBS switched me to the Colts game right after the Pats game finished, and I was switched right after the Colts first of two TDs in the final minutes of the game.

Funny story, I was working in a restaurant during a rush. I went to the restroom so I could check the score on my NFL app. I saw that we were down by 5 with like 52 seconds left and that (according to my app) Detroit had the ball. I assumed we had lost for the next 3 hours. I'm not fun to work with when the Colts lose lol. Glad to know I was wrong.

Well, my app kept showing Detroit with 30 points, then 33, then 27, then 30, then...then the Colts with 28. It was really wired for a long while - then it stopped updating with under a minute left. I figured we'd los and tried to log onto the game thread. 27 pages worth!! Darn thing wouldn't load for some reason, taking forever.

Then I get a text from my brother & (Colts fan) niece: "Unbelievable!" and "OH MY GOD!!!! That play! The win!! WOW!!!"

Took me another 15 mins or so to find the video of the last play. Just WOW...amazing Luck.

I was at a friend's house watching it on my cell phone smoking some wings. I pretty much chalked it as a lose, and mad but I kept watching then said we have a chance. Luck in the one minute drill then it was 4 and something, with 4 seconds I said we'll at least we tried. This is it all of a sudden shovel pass td we win I was like you sure but never gave up.

Fellow Portlander here! I have tan into a few Colts fans...glad to know there are some of us.

I was watching the game on the Sunday Ticket on my iPad at the hospital waiting to bring my wife and newborn daughter home. The win enhanced the memory for sure!

    • ESPN shows a troublesome Colts drafting trend...
      If you think I understated the quality of the team around Luck --- fine.   Then,  if not poor,   at best,   average.   You write our offensive roster is well fortified.    That's despite the fact that we have yet to build an average o-line (maybe we get it right this year)   and we have yet to establish a decent running game (maybe we get it right this year)      That doesn't sound like a well fortified offensive roster this year.   Final thought.....    I hope this exchange has been come across as argumentative.    That was a not my intent. I wanted only to offer a different perspective.    I have great respect for your opinion but wanted to note that on this particular issue,  we don't see this one the same way.....    
    • Extremly early prediction...
      Staff may love harrison and he might have been a better guard in the old scheme but he doesn't fit as a zbs guard like haeg does. I think we can rock 5 and can always pull one from p.s if one goes down
    • Cardinals , Cubs and all MLB 2016
      That was whacky but I will take it. Cubs win 9-8. Wasn't Jakes best performance but he is now 9-0. Anytime you can win a series in St Louis that is big. 31-14 on the ol year now through 45 games.
    • Haeg got first team rels at RG over Clark?
      Clark doesn't have a guard skill set. At all.   Haeg, to me, is a guy who can backup four positions, like Joe Reitz. I think he's more pro ready than Clark, even if he doesn't necessarily have the upside -- Clark has better feet, and of course more length; both need work in the weight room.
    • Nate Irving Lost 20 Pounds?
      I like the ILBs, actually. Would have liked to keep Freeman and get rid of Jackson, but between Moore, Irving and Sylvestre, I think there's some talent on the roster.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
