Tennessee (+ 5 /12) at Indianapolis

16 posts in this topic

Must game for Indy......A win we simply have to have and the crowd will act like it...

Colts have been good at home...5-1

Remember when they were 2-3 and a few of us said the November schedule was so week they could win the next 4??

....We arent good enough to look ahead and there's nothing to look ahead to....

Its a big worry that we dont stop the run and CJ is healthy

But I think the Colts win by a TD and cover this

Chris Johnson gained 100 yards against us last time we played...

we're one of the few teams he can still run on

Johnson is always scarey, and he'll have a few breakout runs, but he won't run run all over us.

I think Avery plays well in this game. Show the old team what they're missing. :)

Chris Johnson can run all he wants to on us. But the important thing is that we have Andrew Luck and they don't. We have a great chance to win this game.

we have a great chance to win most games........but do you think we WILL win and would you give 5 1/2 points?

..and no..Chris Johnson cannot run all he wants to....we eventually have to stop him..

I say we win this game. At least by a field goal. We beat them at Tennessee with a better QB in Hasselbeck. I say we beat them with a not so good Locker at home.

And we are 9-4 heading into Reliant Stadium!

I'm a committed bettor. Every weekend, tons of games.

I see this as a 4 point game maybe 5 but I'd not give anyone 5.5 unless I was drinking. Lol

I honestly don't think we should have too many problems with this game. But i'm not going to forget about the "Any Given Sunday" phrase. I just think this game is very winnable for us.

Exactly, and with Pittsburgh and Cincy streaking, we need to win.

100 is not what worries me. I usually expect him to get that much. Its the 150 or 200 that scares me.

I could be wrong but it really seems like overall we do pretty well against CJ. He may get 100 but it never feels like he changes the game against us. Granted I usually compare him to MJD and Foster who almost always burn us so it doesn't feel like CJ burns us as badly.

    • Bates as a ILB?
      Yeah I'm getting the feeling you are right here. It's a mistake to draft a O-Lineman for the future IMO, but hopefully Luck is ok. Just never been much of a fan or Reitz and Thornton, and I don't know how good Good is going to be. Little nervous and was excited for the Clark pick. O-Line is difficult to learn for sure, I guess Mewhort was kind of an exception to the rule?
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Thank you.    Agreed.     I like the kids,  I just don't think they'll do much for the Colts in 2016.   But I see them playing a major roll,  perhaps even starting in 2017.     They both have very high ceilings.    Loads of talent.   But they both need polishing.    Lots of polishing.    It's going to take time.   I repeat,   I like both kids.    I just wouldn't expect much help from either this year.    But 2017?    Look out!    
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Luck will survive because the line will be much better.   A -- Kelly will start and he will help the line tremendously.   B -- Thornton, Good and Reitz will improve tremendously under Philbin   C -- As a result of A and B, the line will improve.   Hey,  I could be wrong,  but everyone seems to agree that while Clark has fantastic physical tools,  his game is raw and unrefined and he's going to need a ton of work to get to a starting level.    I don't see it happening his rookie year.    I hope it happens for him in year two.   One last thought....  last year, Arizona drafted OT Humphries (forget his first name) and they sat him the entire season.    He didn't even dress for a single game.    That was the plan all along.    Humphries wasn't ready and he came from Florida.     But Arians said most college lineman -- even the best ones -- just aren't ready for the NFL level of competition.     Humphries may start this year.    But he played zero snaps last year.     A lineman like Clark not playing much his rookie year is not as strange as it sounds.

      Let's assume that the FO doesn't seriously believe that the team is in a shape for a deep SB this year, but very well could be next year after hopefully getting some top pass rush in the 2017 draft. Then it makes more sense. Not saying that is the case, but it certainly is a possibility. Just something to think about.  
    • Bates as a ILB?
      Completely Agree with you on Green just so you don't think I'm being ridiculous. He's very raw and Adams and Geathers are going to start over him while he learns. He'll play ST's for a year and maybe 15 snaps a game for Adams and Geathers when they come out. I don't see how Clark can't start if he is good enough, and I honestly don't see how you think Luck will survive another year with Good, Reitz and Thorton starting over Clark. None of them are starter material. You can say all you want about Clark being raw, but those guys will get Luck Killed. If Clark struggles to adapt to our system, don't start him, but I just don't see him being worse than Good, Reitz and Thornton. Maybe Reitz is better, but you grow with experience, and I think that's where we differ on this, is that you think Our current right side is better than Clark. If Clark shows promise in training camp, I think you have to start him. This isn't a WR, Luck was hurt last year and you have to protect your franchise QB.   Also, if Clark does sit for a year, then I don't know what Grigs was thinking either drafting a project. It would be a very irresponsible move when we need the protection now.
