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!

    • I don't think he should be cut, I say give him another chance. We need to keep depth on the D.Line and he will be fresh coming in Week 5. His Salary isn't really hurting the team either so I would keep him. Regarding Texans and Jags fans laughing at our fans, that is comical in itself. I get what you are saying about some Colts fans, nothing we do as a team satisfies some of us but our expectations are very high every season. Fun facts: Since the AFC South was created in 2002 the Jags have never won the Division and never been passed the Divisional Round and the Texans haven't made it passed the Divisional Round either in the Playoffs and have only won the Division 3 times. We have won the Division 9 times and have been in 4 Championship Games, 2 SB's, and won a SB in that same timeframe. So they can laugh all they want but the joke is on them in reality. Those teams have a long way to go to match our history in the Division!
    • I don't think they will because there is likely to be at least two young lineman behind him that are good players who are playing on cheap contracts right now. I think he'd have to super ball out and I don't see it. 
    • "Forget that you and I both know from watching them that Butler is a better defender than Ellis.. What you're doing is looking for the outlier...the statistic that goes against the grain. Its called being a contrarian."   I'm being a contrarian based on the study of EVERY possession watched by NBA.com staff....Also being a contrarian is not a bad thing. We don't know how many of those people at NBA.com watched every single possession but somebody did and most likely multiple people......and again seeing who scored on who is easy. deciphering those stats and who scored on who is not hard, Just because you want to reject it does not make it any less true...Again take it up with NBA.com staff if you refute what they say.   I have also never said Monta was not a good defender.....I actually said he was a very good defender a few posts back. A good shooter? Sure if you want your guards to only be able to shoot from 16 feet in with consistency, From 20+ feet? Atrocious    
    • Correction: For the record, Jimmy Butler was voted 2nd-team all defense in the 2015-2016 season.
    • Gavin, Forget that you and I both know from watching them that Butler is a better defender than Ellis.. What you're doing is looking for the outlier...the statistic that goes against the grain. Its called being a contrarian. You do understand that no one person watches every possession..
      Multiple different with varied experience in many different places and priorities people do. So their opinion of what that stat is creates their opinion. That's what it is. An opinion.   You cite them as if they are accepted as fact. Anything other than hard stats...rebounds points, minutes played, is an opinion..based on who takes it down.... If you can find anything that says that even though Butler takes the other teams top forward and Ellis is not given that assignment at guard, that Ellis is a better defender, please present it...   You've been VERY critical of Ellis and the fact that he's not a good shooter or defender Why would believe a stat that says he is better than Jimmy Butler..who was third team all defense?
