Dont tell anybody but Andrew Luck (279 of 503, 3,596 yards) is going to throw for 5,000 yards.

Keep it quiet because nobody sees it coming.... :oops:

Imagine how amazed everyone will be. :cloud9:

Get your popcorn ready :popcorn:

4 games, another 1000 yards to hit 4500 yards. He wont hit 5000.

4500 is where it will be topped off, especially with 2 games vs Texans, IMO.

Andrew 5K would be a very cool name if he hits it, but not this season. Unless he just goes insane in these next 4 games, we'll have to wait a while.

If I was 12 I would hope not, because when people get pass happy Watt comes out to play and interceptions are sure to follow... :number1:

It would be cool if Andrew threw for 4k to 5k, but to be honest with you I will be more satisfied if that leads to more TDs. If we can get more 28 to 35 point performances like yesterday that's when I'll really be happy with a 4000 to 5000 yard throwing season for "The Kid". It's a good accomplishment, but it's not as grand if you throw for 5k while only averaging 20 points a game. I hope yesterday was a sign of good things!

I'm really happy about the fact that we didn't kick any field goals yesterday. Every point was scored by the offense.

I doubt it, unless we are behind, we don't throw too much. With teams like Chiefs & Titans, I think we will run the ball effectively so Andrew won't break the 300 yard mark.

So both Houston games he would at least need to throw 400 yards to make up for it. Which is possible but unlikely.

Andrew 5000 does sound like a cool name, implying that he is somewhat robotic as well.

First of all, it IS possible. His past record shows that he goes ballistic every few games, so I think one of the remaining games, he will come close to 400. That and the fact that fleener is back and that with an even more compromised Oline, he will have to throw more.

Andrew 5000 and RG3-2...two machines programmed to meet in the year 2016. How much more futuristic can we get? Lol.

Well, you know, he's on pace for 4800 yards right now, so if he manages to have a couple of 350+ yard games, 5000 yards isn't completely crazy. He needs to get 1400 yards in 4 games.

With Houston's pass defense allowing a crazy amount of yards recently, it's not too crazy to predict 5K

well all he needs is like 149 yards per game to break newtons record. that is manageable.

Definitely, baring a catarophe. I'd love Luck to continue breaking records but most of all help lead the Colts to the playoffs!!! ;)

What an experience that would be for this team and all their young players. Several quality rookies making it to the playoffs their first year would only make them better, even if they do get knocked out in the first round.

Bless your heart..but we hardly dominated Tennesse the first time..we still really dont stop the run well and they still have CJ....

and KC probably has better players than we do. they've just been asleep all year....until last week....

Houston will dominate our O-line because most teams do

We will need 'Andrew 5,000'

I'll take TD's, game winning drives, and W's. Unfortunately, we saw what an overthrown shoulder can do. Peyton is now strictly on a throw count. Gone are the days when he would play pitch and catch with Marvin for a half hour before the game. If Andrew does throw for 5k, I hope it is his last year doing it.

Bless your heart, CJ2K has never been very good against us, even when we had one of the worst run defenses in the league. We were the only defense fast enough to stop him. Also that game is in Lucas Oil and with Locker as the starter, I don't think he has a whole lot of a chance against our defense.

If KC had good players, they would be more than 2-10. Also it is bad coaching and they have no QB. They barely beat another underachieving team, the Panthers.

I agree that Houston will dominate our O-line and will probably beat us in Reliant because the Texans are the better team. But going back to Lucas Oil Stadium, and with the scheduled return of Chuck Pagano? That stadium will be electric and the team will feed off that energy and be really motivated to win for Chuck.

We won't need 'Andrew 5000' maybe just 'Andrew 4999' :td:

Tark..NO CHANCE? you must have missed the gave at Tennessee THIS YEAR when CJ ran for 100 yards against us.

remember we lost to jacksonville an the Jets..talk about no QB and no coaching.

we have to play desperate......this game is pivotal....we cannot recover from a loss at home

Sounds like your coming down with Colts-fever :thmup:

Its catching.

Ah! But he only ran for 99 yards, on 21 carries! :) And he didn't have any touchdowns which was a big reason why we won. And with how sloppily the Titans have been playing, I see this like I do the Browns game. We will run the ball a lot to control the tempo.

The last home loss that we had was the Jacksonville game in week 3. We have won 5 straight home games. We have a lot more energy at home then away, the crowd is definitely a factor.

I agree that we have to win this game and the KC game. Both games are huge to our playoff chances (I honestly didn't think I would say that at all this year :number1: ) and should be fairly winnable games against 2 teams with a combined record of 10-18.

Didn't Locker start for them last week? I think as long as he is healthy, he plays. Don't know why, he hasn't played well at all.

He'd have to average 351 yards in each of the last 4 games... Unlikely, but possible I guess.

He's already on pace to get over 5k total yards, including rushing. Is that an all-time rookie total yardage record?

no... there is another rookie QB who throws for 164 or so and a TD that is the future of the QB position.

Sigh...

Luck will shatter nearly every rookie QB stat WITH THE EXCEPTION OF RUSHING YARDS FOR A ROOKIE QB.

and RG3 will get ROTY.

The only way Luck gets his due is if Indy wins 10-11 games. period. We must make the playoffs.

Andrew L is having the greatest season ever for ANY #1 QB ever.

Including Manning.

    • Breakdown of Eastern Kentucky EDGE Noah Spence
      2015 Breakdowns:   Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State Emmanuel Ogbah, EDGE, Oklahoma State Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson   Size: Spence is 6'2" 254 lbs. Basic size for an edge-rushing OLB. 4-3 teams would probably prefer more length, meaning he'll be more attractive o the 3-4 teams. (4/5)   Athleticism: Spence has great speed around the edge and possess a nice up the field burst. Quick-twitch player able to avoid blocks in traffic and cut-blocks. Good hip and ankle flexibility to give OTs fits on speed rushes. Spence plays with absolutely relentless motor; often being able to make 2nd and 3rd attempts on QBs and runners. Spence lacks elite strength at the point of attack and can get blocked out by bigger offensive-tackles. Speed to power is just above average. Change of direction is good, not great. (7.5/10)   Hand Usage: His hand usage is much better pass rushing than it as on running plays. But not particularly great at either. He doesn't seem to lack hand strength so it's really just something that will have to be coached into him (5/10)   Pass Rush Moves: Doesn't very much. Like most athletic pass rushers he prefers the speed moves around the edge with a little rip every now and then. Can get ran up the field if he doesn't win with his initial move. Really disappointing he got kicked off of Ohio State, because I think another year of development at a real school would have him a lot further along technically then where he is at now. You'd like to see a few counter-moves thrown in as often times OTs over-correct to account for his speed. (6/10)   Run Defense: Not an incredibly strong player who's going to anchor the front for you, but Spence is surprisingly good at reading running plays and picking lanes to fill. That awareness, combined with his relentless effort makes him an already pretty decent run defender. Not the type of player to blow up the whole play, but the type of player who fills lanes which allows other players to make the tackle. (7/10)   Misc. Technical: Noah is a pretty conservative player on read-option/play-action type plays, preferring to stay at home instead of risking the big play from the offense. If we do draft him, his effort will be a breath of fresh air compared to the passive Bjoern Werner. Snap anticipation is average. (3.5/5)   Tackling: Gets low; wraps up. Not much more you could ask for. (5/5)   Versatility: Spence is pretty clearly limited to a rush LB spot in a 3-4 or in a 4-3 over front. Bacially no coverage snaps that I saw. Can play with his hand in the dirt in obvious pass situations, but i don't think any 4-3 teams are going to overthink this one. (2.5/5)   GIFs (gif machine is giving me trouble so sorry for so few):    Strip-sack on a speed rush: https://zippy.gfycat.com/SecondaryHatefulArcticfox.webm   Beats Jack Conklin for a near sack and tackles the runner: https://fat.gfycat.com/UnitedAcceptableAsianconstablebutterfly.webm   Watch his hands on a different angle: https://zippy.gfycat.com/JointFastEastsiberianlaika.webm   Conclusion:    40.5 out of 60 which is a mid-1st round pick.    Spence is an athletic, high-effort player who's probably the highest upside player in the draft. In my opinion, his floor is that of a good pass rusher with a ceiling of Von Miller or Khalil Mack. His inherent risk and limit to the 3-4 teams will likely mean he'll be available at 18 if the Colts want him. I could see Spence becoming a 12 sack a year player in the NFL.   NFL Comparison: Elvis Dumervil, BAL
    • Interesting Article on Peyton
      always said this from above article   analyzed Peytion in his prime Colt years Vs now   Perhaps this is karma, a just reward after a career of — with a few exceptions — being shackled to some of the worst defenses ever to run deep into the playoffs   & his and the running game was less efficient than what Tom Brady, Drew Brees or John Elway was working with.   Manning was very good — if not completely and totally great — in every facet of passing the football.   ( NOW after his decline but with a proper D )    it’s hard not to appreciate the strange symmetry after Manning spent a career elevating middling and worse teams with his brilliance.
    • Bproland's Post Superbowl Mock Offseason
      Yes I agree it's horrible in it's depth but there are a few good centers. I think there's a chance at Jack Allen, Ryan Kelly, or Max Tuerk in the 3rd. Karl Joseph is a strong safety and we have Geathers and Hall is a corner who might go earlier than mid 4th and with snagging a guy in FA a position we are good at. If we are looking at safety I'd rather have Sean Davis in the 3rd or if he falls Deandre Houston-Carson in the 4th. But really though I don't think corner is a big need after grabbing a guy in FA.
