I see threads on how the colts are winning. You know what? I'm just glad the're winning. I don't care if it's smoke and mirrors. The colts have WAY exceeded my expectations. It's all GRAVY now.

The only stats and records I care about are in the win/loss column...Luck may throw some picks here and there, but He always seems to find a way to pull it out in the end. I am PROUD to be a Colts Fan :)

Amen to that! Wins and losses are ALL that matters (See signature line). We have a team full of grit and heart. It hasn't always been pretty this season; in fact, more often than not it hasn't been. But I am just proud to be a Colts fan. Now let's get ready to smash the Texans!

Except for setting rookie records, completely turning around the franchise, and showing the future is really bright.

Oh, I guess I don't agree...

We are about as close to a lock for the playoffs that you can possibly be without actually clinching. Even if we lose the next 3(which is highly unlikely since we still play the Chiefs) they could still make the playoffs. There is no way Pittsburgh, Cincy, and the Jets are going to win out so it's actually harder for the Colts to not make the playoffs than it is for them to make the playoffs.

No..Monroe.....

Records mean nothing.....we hope the future is bright...but nothing is guaranteed

But we're 9-4 now.........we're about in the post-season now...

I dont want 'feel good'' and I promise you you wont feel good if we lose these last 3...

The NFL is all about the post-season....always has been

All true..but, as I know you know, we're playing Houston twice and we play KC on the road....

We lose a 3-way tiebreaker with Cincy and the Jets.

lets not eat the cake before we bake it

I agree, but if we can't beat the Chiefs even in their house, we do not deserve to go to the playoffs. Yes, any given Sunday, I know, but the Chiefs are truly awful.

Respectfully disagree. You said unless we make the playoffs we accomplished nothing. I think we've already accomplished more than anyone could realistically could have expected. Playoffs or not, I'm fine with this season. More than fine...elated.

That's just me.

LOL ... it just goes to show that last year was just as much (or more IMO) a fluke as this year! Seriously this team could just as easily be 2-11 right now, but we some how pulled out close wins that we didn't last season. Why is that? IMO last year was due to injuries and the team giving up on the season and quitting - IT was a fluke season. This year the team has never given up on anything - they are winning despite the rookie QB not having the best season.

Actually the only scenario in which we don't make the playoffs is if we lose out and NYJ win out. Does anyone here think the Jets have a realistic shot to run the table?

It's much more likely the Jets lose out, than them winning out.

If the Texans beat the Pats and then beat us next week, don't they clinch a bye? If so, that takes some pressure off of the Week 17 matchup.

I'd rather play to win.

I think we're in now, I don't see Cincy and Pitt both getting 9 wins, especially sense they still have to play.

KC is our last must win. I'd love to see the pressure put on the Texans by losing tonight, because that's what it would be. There's none on Indy. Zilch.

Go Pats..ick.

I hopped on the wagon when it was a Red Wagon... Meaning I was a kid when I became a Colts fan at the age of 7-8, and I'm 26 now. Not going anywhere.

I'm not suggesting we won't play to win; I'm sure we will. I'm just saying that the math says we need one more win. If the Texans win tonight and next week, they'll have the division locked up, be a lot closer to the #1 seed and a first round bye, and will probably not be interested in the outcome of the Week 17 game. Even if we lose to KC -- which we can, by the way -- we still have the Texans game to get that 10th win.

And it might not even matter at that point, depending on what the Jets, Bengals and Steelers do in the next couple weeks.

Like you, I'd hope we could win out, take the division back from the Texans, and get a home playoff game. That would be super fantastic. But I doubt it happens. I think they're too good in the trenches, and I actually think they're going to roll us next Sunday.

I'm almost right there with you. Unitas, Matte, Bubba, Bert, Mitchell. Some very ugly years, some okay. The move. Still a fan.

Dickerson, some bad times, some good, Manning magic that we wanted to last forever. And now ...

I've been a Colts fan my entire life, and I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like when Jim took over the ownership the team started to feel more like a family.

The thing I really love about this team is that despite the fact they keep putting themselves behind the 8 ball on a consistent basis the team is good enough to dig it's way out of these bad situations. Bad teams would quit. Bad teams would panic and turn the ball over more. Indy tightens it up and plays BETTER under duress.

They are smart, and it shows in crunch time. They are not getting lucky, they are earning these wins.

This team plays with PRIDE and I really like that.

Perfect example.. coming out of the half yesterday the Colts are minus Sam S, Justice, and Olsen was playing like a girl. AQ Ship, Link, and Olsen (put his big boy pants on) they brought it in the second half. Staff made some great adjustments and ..... I was shocked, it was like night and day.

PRIDE. This team has a lot of it. And it shows. The difference between winning and losing in the NFL is very small. The Colts are simply a team that plays with heart and pride. The really good teams have this. The bad ones like Detroit/Tenn.. you can see they don't. And it is why they lose.

    •       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.
