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.

His, not the Colts.

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'm actually happy about it. I normally can't watch games live because I have to be at work at 1pm on Sundays. I will be able to watch almost all of it
    • A great post Restored! Thank you for your insightful perspective. 
    • Intro: What is it like to play in London? The Colts have a couple of players who have experienced playing overseas. View the full article
    • 14.30 for me too, I hope I don't sleep in, lol.   It's probably better it's on early in the morning for ye guys though. The 4.25pm kickoffs like against the Broncos and Chargers last 2 weeks are at 9.25pm across the ocean here, which means were up until about 1am on a work night. Say like last year against the Patriots in the night time kickoff, I stayed up from 1.30am to about 4.30-5.00 (ish), and then we saw that fake punt fail, I was not in a good mood Monday morning.     Honestly though, I've been a Colts fan for about 12 years. This is the first time I am getting an opportunity to see my team, so obviously hugely, hugely excited about Sunday!   Just want to wish everybody flying over a safe and happy trip. (Granted the latter may depend on the result, lol)
    • Thank you for your post OPC, particularly what I highlighted in red. You're right though. Luck's early success in the league getting 1 step further every yr. minus DeFlate Gate has created an aura of playoff expectations that may not be easily achieved every season. Also, I like what you said about the fact that we all have habits good or bad that we will never change. The same is true of QBs. Some QBs are risk takers & with risks come both touchdowns & turnovers.    I always cut Chewy a ton of slack because I know our running game isn't great & he always owns his picks saying "my fault". That's why I love the guy because he always takes responsibility on bad decision making himself even if the turnover isn't really his fault.    I agree with you. Luck is just starting his NFL career & we as fans have to let the game come to him on his own timetable not what we or the media think his awareness level in yr 5. Like you say, Andrew has more football ahead of him than behind him. Well said.

    • 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.
