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!

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]     
    • Slow starts. We were leading by the end of Q1 on more occasions than we were losing last year.
