I'm not totally sure how we're winning

55 posts in this topic

I mean doesn't anybody stop and think that maybe these guys are just really good. I know this is a young team but these guys can flat out play football. It should be scary for the rest of the league for years to come. I think everybody basis everything on last year this is a new team. I mean Grigson and Pagano has done a awesome job putting this team together. There is no ugly wins in the NFL there still some great plays being made on field. Do you think teams with below 500 records would give anything to have the wins we've had. There are teams like the Browns would give away every win they've had the last ten years to have one season like were having. So let's just enjoy the ride!

I agree. I remember in 2006 we were winning close games too.

They should make a movie about this team- all rookies with a few old men,last year 2-14, no head coach, cheer leaders shaving their heads. Will Ferrell would fit in as the GM as the star with Jim Carey playing Andrew Luck. Three running backs down with injuries yesterday!! What's next- the bus does not arrive, the players are stranded fender deep in mud two hundred miles from the stadium and they still win! Go Blue!!

It really is fairly remarkable that a team can "win ugly" so many times in one season. That doesn't happen very often in the NFL. The combination of players making a play when it is needed with Luck's second half magic (especially 4th qrt. drives) is always just enough to win. Don't remember a team like this one. I am just excited by the prospect of being in the playoffs. Because once you get to the playoffs, anything can happen game to game.

This team doesn't quit, many wins came because of this. Teams often are defeated before 0:00.

True..but its okay to be honest.........with what you are seeing

...and out turnover-takewawy ratio is about minus-16

We've allowed far more points than we've scored..

That doesn't scream 'really good'

Its okay to question how we're getting this done...isnt it?

Did I mention despite all the 'venom' that is spewed on Arians (mostly by me) do to his lack of some necessary HC skills that his very scheme of down the field passes down after down is a big part in why we are where we are at in terms of wins and losses and an even BIGGER part of that is Lucks ability to not crack if things go against him and our wr's and Tight Ends and running backs ability to execute (such as the O Line). Despite what I say (and I fully believe what I say about his abilities) he is still the HC at this time who has us at 9-4

They're winning because they score enough points to offset the mistakes they make.

Eventually they'll make far fewer mistakes but the results will similar.

How they're doing it, ugly or pretty doesn't matter, I'm just glad they are.

I admit it freely, I never expected this season to be sooooo good!

We have a great foundation with this new edition of the Colts, we're not in a situation in which we have to rely solely on the QB's performance. We have folks that step up as needed. Winning as a team makes the goals more attainable....

There's no secret. Though we are giving up tons of yards, and Luck comp % is rather low, still this team can make the key plays those are winning us games... Just think of Titans and Lions game...D made important stops and Luck can mag big, scoring drive if it is needed. D and O helping eachother. If D alloews many points mostly O outscores the opponent, If O struggles d makes stops and contain opponents.

It will be fun to see, when the whole team is functioning with full steam . IMO they are performing around 60-70% right now, due this team is loaded up with rookies and new players, but when chemistry would be established and we found players for some spots of need, Colts would be almost unstoppable.

dont question just enjoy

Heck with that, I want to see the issues remedied before the luck runs out, and thats what it has been a whole lot of blind luck going our way this season! The same way it went against us last year.

This team could very easily be 2-11 right now with most here crying we messed up not taking RGIII ... I laugh everytime the sports media talk about how great of a season Luck is having ... by years end likely 30+ turnovers and less than 50% completion ratio - is that really a great season?

Sure as a fan, I am glad we are 9-4 vs 2-11, but I'm not at all overly impressed with what I have seen on the field!

you seem to be forgetting what luck has to work with. inexperience youth at every important position with a shaky o-line

    • Let's talk UDFA: Tevaun Smith
      Smith is one of my favorite UDFA's. My buddy is a Hawks fan so I have seen him play a lot.  He has speed, breaks tackles, is a willing blocker, and the most important thing catches anything close to him. His route tree is limited mainly because Iowa plays such a conservative offense.    I was surprised he went undrafted after his pro day. He is a hard worker and I think he at least makes the PS. I just mentioned him in another thread. The kid has a future on Sunday. He's the WR I'll be watching.    I think Tyms has an advantage over all the WR's because he's proven he can be a good gunner in the league during his time in NE. Bray obviously has an advantage because of return duties

    • Haeg got first team rels at RG over Clark?
      I don't think Reitz or Good are going anywhere. In fact one will start at RT. I would be surprised if Harrison isn't around 1 more year at least to be our back up C. I'm not sure only having 2 rookies at the C position is the way we go.    I guess we keep 10 or stash Blythe on the PS keep 9.  Castonzo Mewhort Kelly Thorton Reitz/Good start Harrison and Haeg are the primary back ups. Clark gets a red shirt year for the most part.    I think Blythe can be a fine pro but he needs to get stronger. If he was a 3 position back up out of the shoot you think we get him in the 7th?  We cut the dead weight in Holmes. 
    • Extremly early prediction...
      In my mind he'd be the 4th back. Turbin is here to be the back up. I think it's his job lose maybe Vsrga takes it but he'd need a really good preseason.    I'm hoping we keep Ferguson or Williams as a scat back. I can't remember a guy like that on our O. Ferguson looks to have really good hands. We could do different things with him. He's another guy that many had being drafted.    That would leave Varga fighting it out for 4th spot or as you mentioned we could stash him on the PS and keep 3. That would leave the door open for an extra WR.   A guy like Tevaun Smith. My buddy is a Hawkeye fan so I fell asleep watching them ast year.  When he did wake me up it was often with the name Tevaun Smith. I was surprised he wasn't drafted after he blew up his pro day. I really like that kid

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
