luck is only 455 yards shy of breaking cam newtons passing yard record for a single season. i think he can do it this weekend against tennessee seeing he tends to play better at home. it will be tough though

Hopefully we will be playing with a lead this week. So not that many pass yards.. I see it happening in Houston

No option for the home game with Houston or not at all? Pedantic I know but for the sake of completeness. :P

At Houston I'm going for.

So you are predicting he breaks his own single game passing record to break the season rookie record against Tennessee?

Houston.

We will need to pass for a bunch a yards to even come close. But hey if Jacksonville can do it, why not us?

I think it was a combination of sleeping on the Jags, not expecting Henne to throw the ball downfield, defensive miscues, and the overlooked aspect of us playing a physically/emotionally draining game at Chicago the week before. Remember the Bears gave up 32 points to...Kaepernick?! I think they were feeling the after affects like we were. There were more than a few guys that came back with flu like symptoms from that game.

We finally got some rest and took Tennessee to the slaughterhouse...one thing is for sure we won't be sleeping on the Colts.

This is a valid point; however, I'm hoping that we have the Titans game firmly in hand and AL doesn't need to throw for 455+ yards...

Absolutely, personally, I don't see the Colts taking a game against the Texans at Reliant. Texans play very well at home and with our road woes? Yeah probably not happening.

But week 17? Pagano coming back to the sideline playing against the Texans at LOS. I think we could steal one. We play much better at home and the crowd will be electric.

It will be tough to win against the Texans, period, i think we all know that. It would be my prediction that we win 1 out of the next 4 games. If we win 1 or fewer games out of the next 4, I'm still going to be proud of their accomplishments but it just means that the Steelers were the better team and deserved to go to the playoffs more than us. No harm no foul.

I would understand that, the Steelers are a good team along with the Bengals. I see us actually winning 3 out of the 4 and going into the playoffs 11-5 and heading to Denver.

Agree completely, and remember our crappy 2-14 team split with the Texans last year ;)

True, but they had TJ Yates playing and there is quite the talent drop off between Yates & Schaub.

And the crowd will be raucous for this game.

wow, that is a bold prediction based on how many yards we gave up through the air vs. detroit and it seems as though we always give up a big play on the ground too (missed tackles, vapor tackles, matador tackles, holes blown open, etc.), but going to Denver would make me want to have a lobotomy, i don't think I could take it.

Most likely not but I sure would love it if JJ Watt & the Texans packed their sleeping bags, took some Ambien, turned on a sweet lullaby and went to sleep vs the Colts.

Well the Lions have the #1 passing offense in the league, they throw for massive amounts of yards anyway. And the run game has been getting worse over the weeks, because our run game has been horrendous. We can't sustain drives so our defense gets exhausted. Running the ball shouldn't be a problem against the Titans, (27th ranked run defense) or the Chiefs (26th ranked run defense). I don't think we could win, on the road in the playoffs. Especially not to Denver. Luck vs Manning, it would be a great match-up but Denver has a good defense and Manning wants to get back against the team that released him. I would watch it because it would be an historic moment.

Good info and I agree. Also, If we still have time to improve in certain areas, anything's possible.

We do, having Vontae healthy will be huge. Or just overall health of the defense will be important. And more continuity with the offense line. Other than that, I think we are fine. The offense is good enough to win games.

did you see Vontae make that impressive "cut" tackle , then do his little dance? Priceless. I hope he can keep that up.

Although I will be able to watch the game this week against the Titans!

    • Brady is deflating the NFL'S balls as we speak. 
    • I am going with Cincinnati, giving  them the edge,  being at home.  They held their own for the better part of 3 quarters against the Broncos, then the Broncos DEF was just too much at the end of the game.  
    • I've put two parts of your post into bold, and I'd like to address them.   I'll take the last one first....    about this team not being good enough to recover from Luck's mistakes.    Well, we recovered this week.     We still beat San Diego.      If you're saying we can't make mistakes and beat Denver,  then I agree,  but that's Denver.     At least we beat San Diego and overcame our mistakes.   As to Brady, Rodgers and Wilson.       I think you'll see their raw interception numbers are far less than Lucks.   Now,  they're attempting fewer passes, so their int % is better than Luck's but perhaps not as great as one might think.       Still,  Brady  Rodgers and Wilson are able to go up and down the field and throw far fewer interceptions than Luck.     And it gives me no pleasure to say that.    Notice my avatar.                        B                        R                     W               L 15                 7                         8                      8               12 (7 games) 14                 9                         5                      7               16  13                11                        6                      9                 9 12                 8                         8                     10              18   11                12                        6 10                  4                      11 09                13                       7 08                  0 (hurt)             13  07                  8 06                12 05                14 04                14 03                12 02                14 01                12
    • Umm, don't lump me in with everyone else. I'm plenty critical of Luck, when I think he deserves it.    1) Luck didn't try to get free, he tried to get down. He was sandwiched between two defenders who were holding him up and trying to take the ball away. I believe the play should have been whistled dead before the ball started to come out. The play was a max protect with no short outlets, no hot routes, and Luck was getting hit by free rushers within 2 seconds after he took the snap so he couldn't pull the ball down or throw it away. That fumble is NOT his fault. It was awful protection -- when the QB should be able to rely on good protection -- and it was a case of bad officiating.    2) The pick against Denver was a bad throw, and unnecessary. He had time, wasn't being pressured, and had two dumpoffs to either side of the field. He tried to force the ball into an inexperienced receiver with a savvy and aggressive corner closing in. Bad decision, bad throw, bad result.   3) The pick against SD was worse, because it was a one read in iso man coverage, and not only did Luck not see the CB's good position, he didn't put the ball in a place where the receiver could try to hold off the defender. 
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
