Why's everyone gettin' all emotional about possibly playin' the Broncos in the Playoffs?

88 posts in this topic

I'd rather play the Ravens.

Because the Ravens, frankly, aren't very good.

This thread will be littered with examples of why this is the worst possible scenario. Some people will be able to discuss the topic, and there will be plenty of examples of ignorance at its best.

Just be careful what you ask for.

i think many fans will be like elis & peytons parents watching a SB between the 2 no matter the outcome u cry for joy for 1 & heartbreak for the other when its done

The media will have a field day with it next year as well, it makes for a great story line, Luck can handle it, if we lose the game (if we play them this year or any year until Manning retires) it wont be because Luck cant handle the pressure, it will be because we have only 1 Corner (whos skills Im hoping shows up by then) and thats Davis, even then we will have to compensate for not having an O Line. we could get blown out but I also could see us winning but were going to have to go through heck to do it

I would embrace the match-up. It would be purely poetic and no matter the result, an NFL fans dream.

Surely, after all the over-hyped Patriots match-ups us Colts fans have endured, the threat of hyperbole wouldn't sway us from enjoying this?

Personally, I wouldn't want to have it any other way.

There are many reasons I don't want to play Denver, but this is reason #1: Peyton would destroy this secondary. He would play them like clowns. Give us Flacco and we might have a game.

The Colts still have to make it though, and that's not guaranteed.

The Colts are probably in, they just have to beat the Titans and Chiefs to get there. However, I agree the Ravens would be a better match up. The Colts D is now stronger against the run than the pass. I would rather play against Flacco and Ray Rice than Manning and the Broncos offense. Either way, the Colts just winning one playoff game will be extremely difficult.

I haven't sensed any sort of emotional drama regarding the possibility of playing the Manning led Broncos but regardless, if we play Denver....IMHO we're going to get detail disassembled. I could be wrong but I don't see Manning EVER losing that 1st game against Indy under any circumstances, much less in Mile High...in the playoffs (but I will allow that Manning can at rare times, lay eggs).

And for me personally, though I guess it is in some sort of sentimental sense fitting to play the Broncos in the playoffs this season...I am looking forward to a possible rematch with the Patriots*.

I'm over Manning. But I'll NEVER be over the rivalry with the Patriots*.

*Cheated their way to 3 Super Bowl victories and more than likely stole 2 Super Bowl appearances from the Indianapolis Colts.

I would prefer to take the easiest road to the playoffs I'm thinking Denver will end up the number 1 seed based off their marshmallow soft remaining schedule. Baltimore will still win the division but will end up at number four Texans will move down to number two, NE will be number three as they will lose to San Fran and maybe even Houston.

Colts will play Baltimore and Cincy or Pitt will play New England in the wild card rounds. I think we have the better chance of beating B'more and I'm pretty sure NE will be either team. given that scenario we play Denver in the divisional round....

If this plays out Im going to get sick.

Hahaha,...funny thread.

funnier replies...

heres one...

remember when Denver was easily beat because while they were a threat, they didn't really have a great QB. We just sat back and let Peyton beat them handily.

Yea, those days are over.

    • Bates as a ILB?
      I have all sorts of red flags about the front office after this draft.   I'm hopeful on all the picks and I've defended them.   But when the owner and GM come out and say Green was a 1st round pick on their board,  and Clark was a borderline 1/2 and Hoag was a 2nd round pick,   so I assume Ridgeway and Morrison were also high on their board....     when they keep saying they're drafting five guys who are 1-3 rounds higher on the board then where they are drafted,  that's a red flag for me.     Especially with a front office whose drafting I view as spotty.   If they had a better track record, I'd have more confidence.     Now?     I'm just highly skeptical and hoping over the next two years that I'm proven wrong and they're proven right.     I'd be happy to be wrong.   But I fear I'm not....
    • Bates as a ILB?
      I'm not sure it makes much sense to justify your skepticism of the front office with a coaching decision about the position where they choose to play a 7th Rd draft choice....especially when they are planning to start him at your own position of choice.
    • Bates as a ILB?
      The Pats have a history of success.     This front office....  well,  less so.      I'm not ready to give this front office as much benefit of the doubt as others here....   I've been surprised at the number of people citing what the Pats do and looking for a comparison.   When the Colts are nearly as successful as the Patriots then we can make some comparisons....   I've lost a lot of faith in our front office.     I hope they win me back.     I hope they prove my skepticism to be unfounded.     I hope they prove me wrong.     I don't make negative posts hoping to be right.    I honestly hope to be wrong.     Seriously,  I'd much rather be wrong here than right.      
    • Predict THIS!!! Who Will Be the O-Line Starters Week 1?
      The reason Jack got moved to LG, was he has slow feet.  Rumor has it we are going to ZBS.  Jack will be a liability.
    • Luck and Anderson Colts Two Best Players Arguably? Agree or Disagree?
      Hey.....     I'm a fan of Henry Anderson!      No one here loves him more than I do!     I followed from high school in Atlanta to Stanford and now to Indianapolis....     I love him.   I just don't think he's our 2nd best player.     Not better than Vonte...    not better than TYH....     not better than AC....      Even if you think he slots in here,  that makes him 5th overall which is impressive.   I just wouldn't put him up there in the 2nd spot based on basically a half a rookie season.....
