Patriots MNF Victory thread

106 posts in this topic

Already calling it. Texans are overrated and have been torched by some of the top passers (Stafford, Rodgers, Manning). Add in the injured secondary and this is going to be an easy victory. Regardless I still think it'll be Houston + New England in the AFCCG.

Hey it works on this forum lately. Some guy posted a Colts over Lions victory thread before the game.

So the game has been decided before it has been played. Make no mistake, whether Patriots win or not, there will be nothing easy about it. Believe me when I say that.

Yeah and if NE loses then this thread will be bumped up a lot by you and Vance. ;)

Oh he has been around a bit lately after I dragged him back from his break. He can't get enough of the ladies of Colts.com.

Hmmm...What's gonna win out psychologically speaking...My Alma Mater loyalty to UW-Madison Alumni DE JJ Watt or my fascination with watching DT Vince Wilfork crush pockets almost nonstop up the middle?

My heart says Texans; My head says Patriots. Just a second...I'm flipping a coin...Heads...Just what I thought. I roll with the Texans on this one..

I'm not nearly as confident as my Patriots brethren... the Patriots haven't shown me that they can slow down an opponent's passing game enough for me to think this will be anything but a close, hard-fought game. I do think New England wins it, primarily because it's at home and it's going to be sloppy tonight (wet, cold rain). Those weather conditions generally favor the Patriots regardless of who they're playing. But I think it'll be close and come down to the last few possessions.

So if Texans lose, Colts control their own destiny. Who would've thought a division title could've been a possibility.... Still feels weird pulling for the Pats, though....http://vimeo.com/55285595

IMO this isnt a cake walk,if the texans put pressure on King Tom and bang him around a little he loses composure and makes mistakes,not to mention i dont see the Patriots as defensive sensations,so lets all just sit back pop a top :thmup: and see how this all plays out

The Texans are not overated in my view of the horizon,the key is pass rush,they mount a good one they are home free

I thank you for your honesty,and it shows me,you not only watch the game but understand it as well.Sounds as if you are one who also watches game within the game

With the Colts three games back, a tie would pretty much lock up the division for Houston. To take the AFC South, you'd need them to lose to NE (assuming they will beat Minnesota), and then beat them twice. So unless you're happy with the wildcard, you have to join us on the dark side, just for tonight. ;)

Southwest, do you live in Washington or Colorado by any chance?

I live in Wisconsin Snowglobe, but I do have 2 cousins that live in Colorado. This is gonna be a great game tonight. An automatic shoe in for NFL Replay this Tuesday or Wednesday night on NFL Network. By the way JJ, thank for recommending the "Education Of A Coach" to me. A great read. :thmup:

Take the home team. It'll be cold. Texas isn't cold.

I'll make my useless prediction here. NE+10

It might not be easy, but Tom Brady is probably chomping at the bit to start tossing the ball around.

This is a gut call btw. The team with the Cow or Bull on the side of their helmet could very well show up big, and then I would be wrong!

I agree Jay that pass rush is indeed crucial...However...

What mesmerizes me about this game is an almost equally potent ground game on both teams. It boils down to which team's running backs have the best overall endurance by the middle of the 4th quarter IMO.

Off to write my book review of Bill Belichick now..."The Education Of A Coach." The more I learn about Bill; the more I profoundly respect this man...

I'm not a speed demon typist BTW...Please be patient...Trust me, it will be worth the wait...

I am very concerned about this game. I agree with GoPats; our secondary just isn't that good, although it's definitely on the upswing right now.

Perhaps Talib will do a good enough job on Andre to limit his damage. I'm not as worried about Foster, although he is very good.

Offensively I'm not worried. The Patriots should (key word) shred that secondary.

It'll be a close game going into the 4th quarter. I do expect the Patriots to win, but would I be surprised by a Texan win? No, not at all.

That's why I respect VL, GoPats, Yehoodi, Snowglobe, & Flying Elvis on here...No blind favoritism here, but balanced objectivity.

Really nervous about this game, its two AFC Juggernauts battling.. The Ravens just lost, so this game is extremely important to the Patriots in order to keep a 1 game lead on them, since they own the tie breaker and would have homefield advantage.. I do NOT want to have to go on the road to Baltimore in the playoffs.

Good evening southwest. I stayed away from this thread because victory is far from certain. The team that executes better and limits mistakes will win.

I'm so pumped up for this game. In order to be the best you have to beat the best. Right now, that's the 11-1 Texans. I'm just glad this one's at Foxboro.

I'm still in the process of pouring through that one.

My favorite part of it so far was when his mother found some old notebooks in the attic and with her being a french teacher she found his french notebook from high/boarding school and she was wanting to look at him breaking down verbs and eveything but it was littered with x's and o's. I thought that was funny and was guilty of that myself.

You're quite welcome. I thought you might enjoy it. I like the part about stopping Marshall Faulk.

Sorry, JJ sWatt is coming down hard. I really like this guy. Possibly might be taking over my favorite non-Colt from Ray Lewis.

Hate the Pats and Texans, sorry fellow comPatriots, but I dislike the Pats more.

Im with you on the ground game,they both have a passing attack as well,although they are very different,IMO i think it comes down to the Defense in this one and gotta give the nod to the Texans,given its being played in NE this probably makes for a very good game that could go either way.In all honesty it will be entertaining at the least.And hope the Officiating is not a factor,because what ive seen latley is just disgusting considering they should be the best in the profesion

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Gavin.....   JSkinnz doesn't think that.   But from your posts you seem to imply that you know better than they do.     And THAT'S what he's noting.   Not that you have access to the same information.     But you jump to conclusions based on your views and then try to sell them here as just as valid as what a pro scout will tell you.   For example,  I wonder if you saw the video on the Scouts talking about Clark?     Because they'll tell you what you need to know.     And that video says your views are seriously wrong.  
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      http://draftbreakdown.com/video/leraven-clark-vs-baylor-2015/ http://draftbreakdown.com/video/leraven-clark-vs-lsu-2015/ http://draftbreakdown.com/video/leraven-clark-vs-lsu-2015/   My biggest concern with him is footwork which just simply does not exist at times and that he relies to much on his long arms. His long arms bailed him out from time to time in college. I don't see that happening against superior competition in the NFL. He has his share of good blocks, Its nowhere near all bad and the thing he has going most for him is his mobility in my opinion but his technique is all over the place and he lacks strength   Strengths:   -Mobility -Anchors against bull rushers well   Weaknesses:   -Stays flat towards LOS in pass protection to often in stead of facing sideline creating a wall between the rusher and the QB (thereby creating a natural running lane or a place for Luck to step into the pocket) -Change of direction is limited. Moves one way well but if a defender crosses back across his face the other way he struggles to recover...I tend to think this is a coordination issue or footwork isssue more than just the fact that he is not capable because of lack of agility...I actually think he is capable physically with practice -More than mobile enough to get to the 2nd level but can struggle to find the Linebacker sometimes -Hands are all over the place at times. -And of course lack of NFL caliber strength which I'm not concerned about provided he stays healthy and committed in the weight room. Its normal for this to be an issue with most college players
    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      Yep.  I didn't say we had a great defense yet.  I said our defense can play inspired if the offense plays great.  I also want a dominant defense but we aren't there yet.
    • The Trouble With Andrew Luck
      Funny how you disect generalities in your first paragraph yet your second is one giant generality. Pot meet kettle.   Great teams mask their weaknesses fairly well actually. Denver masked its shoddy QB play last season by running a low-tempo, ball control offense. New England masked it's lack of a rushing attack by having Brady sit back in a quick passing offense.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
