This team has defied the odds all year so if there is a team in the NFL that can do it one more time and win our division it will be us. I don't think we will win on Sunday but I am sure as heck not going to be surprised if we do pull it off. This is just one of those magical years that teams have once about every 20 years or so. The last one we had was 95.

It doesn't really matter how they have gotten to this point. They're here. If they make the leap and begin playing clean football, anything is possible.

Quote from Chuck Pagano's speech:

"I mentioned before the game that you guys were living in vision, and you weren't living in circumstances. Because you know where they had us in the beginning -- every last one of them. But you refused to live in circumstances, and you decided consciously, as a team and as a family, to live in a vision. And that's why you bring things home like you brought things home today. That's why you're already champions, and well on your way."

Nothing more needs to be said.

GO COLTS! Any given Sunday...

^ ^ This! ^ ^

We are poised to make the playoffs. If/when we do, the slate is clean. The old has passed away, and all is anew again. History shows that you don't have to be a #1 seed or have the best record to win in the playoffs and Super Bowl. Whether we do well or not from here on out, I am already overwhelmed and exceedingly pleased at the play and results of our 2012 Indianapolis Colts.

I completely agree... But it certainly wouldn't hurt to keep the magic going and pick up a playoff win, or 2, or 3, or 4...

We know, where everybody have colts in playoffs (including myself)...an early out. I won't be disappointed if it happens so, because this team worked already a wonder this year. But I won't be surprised neither if we would play more than 1 game in PO.

I believe this years Colts as one of the more improbable stories in sports.

You mean to tell me that a team that went 2-14 last year, gutted the front office, gutted the coaching staff, and gutted the roster and have the number one overall pick and go on to win 9 games with a team without the head coach who is battling leukemia.

I believe it is the mix of veterans and young guys. Guys like Wayne, Freeney, Mathis, and Redding teaching younger players how to play like Luck, Ballard, Hilton, and Freeman. Guys who have played in super bowls and are emotional leaders of the team.

Hollywood couldn't write a script better than this, things like this don't happen. And it all started with Irsay who realized that the team needed to have a new face and a new feel.

It has been a great year far and above all of our expectations!

After watching MNF Texans/Patiots, I have even greater faith the Colts can beat Houston on Sunday! It's an easier road after that!

Yes, I have had my share of reality posting. It is truly because this team has exceeded my hopes, my dreams, and my goals for this season by so far of a margin, that I don't want to tarnish this prideful joy that I am feeling with unrealistic expectations, when this team has already given me so much.

I honor that gift and I set it aside...untouched, and I will savor it for the rest of this season and in the offseason. And I will defend it whenever I witness it being needlessly ridiculed because of fans inability to handle disappointment.

But now comes the time for me to also recognize the fact that regardless of how you got there, regardless of how much you deserve to be there, being there is RARE. Folks, we are there .....staring at an opportunity to see the postseason with some realistic expectations because this team, for all of its faults, lack of experience, and continual breaks in coverage on defense and turnovers on offense, we have THE most important ingredient needed to remain playing in December and January.

This team knows how to finish. And they can finish against good teams.

I stand, accepting the ridicule that comes from displaying uneducated faith, and say, Go Colts ....we can win this thing! Our franchise for more than the last decade showed us what it feels like to be a winner. A winner with class and dignity. We should never forget. But this team today has nothing to do with those teams. It has everything to do with the 53 men, coaches and front office that built this monster. They deserve to stand out from the shadow of past greatness. They have earned that this season.

Just like the signature of a poster on this board, Why not us?

Well written. How can anyone ridicule that at this point?

Right, no matter what happens the rest of the season this year has been a ridiculous success and surprise. I'd be disappointed if the Colts did somehow lose out and miss the playoffs, but that's just because they've been so much better than I thought they'd be.

I truly believe that anyone who said the Colts would win more than 6 games this year back in August was just being a blind homer who had no real reasons to back it up.

I predicted 5-11 and thought I was being generous.

We defy the Laws of Underdogs. They had us at #32 ...... Look at us now.

9-4...... & still Fighting. You can call it Luck, Destiny, Cupcake Schedules..... whatever you wanna call it.

Bottomline, we're 9-4 and in the Driver Seat to a Post-Season Birth after enduring a DEVASTATING 2-14 last year. Things have changed, but the will to Fight hasn't left the building. This is what we worked hard for week in & week out. Win #10 is on it's Way!

That is a bold statement, Jules, especially since we dont know who we will be playing. One thing is for sure, we wont go down without a fight. I am not so sure about us winning a playoff game. Just getting there will make me happy.

I would like Pagano to stick it to Caldwell, now that would be nice!!! :)

I said when this whole PM thing went down and he was allowed to walk there better be a real good reason for it. If we were not back in the playoffs and talking about a SB then we should never have let the MVP walk. This season was my expectation. If we were 2-11 rigth now there would be some heads rolling with the way PM is playing.

18# got us used to this idea of postseason play, and there are plenty of our guys that know as well as anyone in the game right now what that's all about!

The one thing about this team in the past season, the off season and this season that's never left my mind.

There aren't many teams with guys like Freeney, Mathis, Wayne, Bethea, Vinny who have that post season experience.

Those guys are a big part of the glue that's keeping this team in a professional mode. In the post season I expect they'll be ready.

Play for one of these, this year! :lombardi:

:goodluck:

At the end of the day this team has already exceeded most peoples expectations, very few thought we would be in position to compete for a playoff spot let alone have ANY shot at all at the Division (I certainly did not). At the end of the day its about wins and losses, We have holes thats obvious. Many of those holes cant be fixed this year (1-2 can I believe). Now it seems come gameday and especially directly after games we tend to have this divide, not a huge divide but a divide none the less, That divide is with fans who see holes in our team mainly at the O Line because we want Luck to have the best chance to succeed and not get hurt doing it as well as our team in general. then there is the other part of the divide that says (for example) enjoy the ride we are 9-4 be happy. I will say as one of those that is on the side of the divide that sees serious holes in our team and want to try something to fix 1 of them (obviously once again the O Line). With that said I dont think that makes me or anyone else that believes that to be any less of a fan or any less happy BUT for the rest of this year....these next 3-4+ games I think we should all come together) and be patient until the offseason when such a time as many of these holes can and should be fixed (This coming from a guy thats been VERY HARD on many of the players we have AND will continue to be with some players). Hey I see we have holes, the GM sees we have holes, Irsay himself sees we have holes he is in touch with the fan base even if he doesn't do things we always want, those holes will be fixed. None of this means that I think there is nothing we can do right now to fix a hole or two though it just means we should come together as Colts fans a little more...Thoughts?

THIS, if anyone said that the Colts had a very realistic shot at a playoff birth and even a remote shot at the division still with only 3 weeks left, no one would have believed it at the beginning of the season...

I am a little shocked at where we are at. i figured we would be 8-8, 9-7, at worst.. 7-9. Just did not expect that would have us fighting for a seeding in the postseason. We got rid of the reasons we went 2-14 and brought in some talent in the draft and some key FA. i loved we signed Avery.. but the main talk here was it was not a good signing because he was hurt... Freeman i knew would be a beast (i watch Roughriders games when i can) Redding has brought that motivating factor to the field (guess playing with Ray Lewis can help that) And being able to go to 80% of Stanford games over the last 3 seasons... i knew what Luck would be bringing to the table. I honestly feel he has not played to where I expected him to be (key word is I). I know why he has not been as accurate.. There will be a moment he figures it out and he will really impress the league. Pagano perfect fit there is no one else i would rather have for this team.

I am one who goes into each game thinking we can win them all. if we execute and win the key battles we should win. but thats why they play the game. There are a ton of variables in each game.

As Peyton says...if you can make it to the playoffs you are only a few games from the Super Bowl and anything can happen when a team gets hot.

At this point, I can't rule us out.

Of course if we win the super bowl, I'll be convinced that the NFL is fixed lol

Agree 100 000.000. 000 Whatever that percent is with you!!! On the (it all started with Irsay who realized that the team needed to have a new face and a new feel. ) And I did too. Just thought that teams had us figured out some what for the last couple of years Look at it this way, if we go to playoffs it will be in the first year with Luck!! And if they lose in a playoff game I don't think it can be as bad as Peyton's first one 41-0 I believe against the Jets? I think we will at least score 3 LOL!!!. I just feel like the Colts

are my team this year instead of feeling like it was one players team all wrapped around one player. Since 1958 I've loved the Colts!! And this team no matter what happens good are bad I love this team and everything about them for the most part with the passion of the love for Colts I had back in the Unitas day!!! I'm glad to now be able to call this team MY TEAM!!! GO COLTS

with 100 000.000. 000 exclamations behind that!!!!

No it all started when PM had neck surgery and Irsay decided to tank the season for Andrew Luck. ;)

I hear ya!! Just like the Saints won the Super bowl because of Katrina!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!

Yes. I totally remember thinking we're gonna lose because of Katrina. But this story beats the Katrinabowl. We were 2-14 and our head coach was diagnosed with Luekemia. Our Struggling #1 draft pick rallies the team to the playoffs.

Chapter 12, Luck beats the GOAT and the guy he replaced.

Chapter 13. Colts win super bowl.

I dunno, it may be too obvious if that were all to happen.

    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      I think they need to develop a new genre of pictures called mid-life crisis breakdown flicks. Now, this category can overlap with romantic comedies or "chick flicks" as they are sometimes referred to, but not always. The appeal of mid-life crisis breakdown flicks is two fold in scope. Either they resonate with an audience because viewers went through a similar experience themselves psychologically speaking or a ticket goer finds comfort in the knowledge that their life might be boring & mundane, but at least my life isn't as pathetic or sad as what you just watched on the big screen for an hour & a half. It's the same reason people watch TV shows like "Hoarders" because no matter how bad your your life might get. There's comfort in the fact that you aren't surrounded by trash you refuse to throw away with dead insects, rodents, or small animals buried underneath all that garbage. Translation: By comparison, almost anybody else's life looks golden next to that trash train wreck.    Recently, I watched a 2016 midlife crisis flick "Alex Of Venice" directed by Chris Messina. It has a running time of 1 hour & 16 minutes with no real twists, turns, or earth shattering moments that shock you. Why am I reviewing then? In 3 words, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Who in the hades is that you ask? Many of you will recognize her as Lt. John McClaine's 18 yr. old daughter Lucy in the 2007 film "Live Free or Die Hard." Translation: Mary based on her portrayal in "Alex Of Venice" & other pictures like "Smashed" & "Kill The Messenger" is well on her way to building a solid resume as a good character actor who just seems believable as a common person who could easily pass as your neighbor, teacher, & mom. Having an everyman chameleon quality that can slide in & out of roles with authenticity is a rare gift & it guarantees that you will be in high demand with no shortage of work as she grows older either.    The storyline is straightforward. Alexandra [Mary Elizabeth Winstead] lives in Venice with her 10 yr. old son Dakota [Skylar Gaertner] & her stay at home husband named George [Chris Messina]. No, not Venice, Italy, but Venice, CA BTW. Alex doesn't own the house where she resides. Her father Roger [Don Johnson], a has been actor living off old TV royalties does. Not an 80's "Miami Vice" TV show joke, but it's the 1st thing that popped into my head when I saw Don Jonson on screen though. I can't lie. Anyway, Alex plays a workaholic environmental attorney committed to derailing a large spa facility from being built in her hometown by a rich real estate developer named Frank [Derek Luke].   Alex is a driven lawyer so driven in fact that he husband George feels overwhelmed & under appreciated by his spouse. He cooks, cleans, does the laundry, helps his son finish his homework, & makes sure his father-in-law takes the correct pills everyday even though Roger appears to forget things more & more frequently now. George is getting tired of holding down the homefront while his wife gets to play earth champion & environmental savior at work. Tensions finally bubble over when Roger refuses to take his meds or follow his daily pill routine that George has spelled out for him. George tells his wife that he's not the family's maid & it's obvious that he's reached his breaking point. Alex doesn't seem to realize how dire the situation is or how much she relies on George to keep the household running smoothly. He tells her that he needs a holiday & just walks out. Whoa. This is somebody bent on a permanent change with no signs of returning.    Fortunately for Alex, her dad was smart enough to call in reinforcements AKA Lilly [Katie Nehra]. Lilly, a tall blond lady, is a freaking riot. She curses a lot around Dakota as his aunt, but she means well. Besides, I like people who swear frequently because it typically means they sugarcoat nothing & they are as genuine as you can possibly get. Lilly is a good ally for Dakota to have as his parents move closer & closer to their inevitable divorce. She listens to him, encourages him to pursue his talent for drawing sketches of other people, plays hooky with him away from school, jokes with him about a girl he has a crush on in school, & she reminds Dakota that he's an awesome kid that both of his folks still love despite this newest rocky road in his life.    Alex appears to be denial about the demise of her marriage to George. Thankfully, Lilly helps her sister get back in the dating scene again. Lilly has a dirty mind & she's very blunt in texting a coworker of Alex's named Josh [Tim Sharp] about meeting her for a drink socially. I can't repeat what Lilly told her sister Alex about getting back in the saddle again, but rest assured her brainstorming is priceless. LOL!    Alex feels swamped at the moment. She is being pushed hard by her boss to stop that spa development by Frank that is killing tadpoles in local lakes, her son Dakota seems too quiet for his own good, her pops Roger has been diagnosed with alzheimer's disease which explains why he can't remember his lines for the play titled "The Cherry Orchard," & she starts sleeping with her spa rival Frank on the side while the case is still pending. Uh oh. Can you say conflict of interest & blurring one's professional judgment? Not a good idea Alex.    When the verdict is handed down by a local judge, Alex lost her case, knew that her decision to fool around with Frank was not her finest hour; grasped that her union to George was officially over for good, & that she had no idea how long Roger would still be coherent before the disease stole him of his family memories forever. Alex is barely hanging on by a thread. She puts on a brave face, but the audience knows the real deal here.    Everybody shows up at the local theater to see Roger give his live performance in "The Cherry Orchard." Don Johnson actually pulls off a darn good scene here playing a butler on stage forgotten by the wealthy family he looked after for decades & he gives this moving speech about legacies & how we all want to be remembered & not dismissed or forgotten leaving some kind of mark on this world before we die. The film ends with Alex & Dakota buying ice cream, strolling down the sidewalk, & the 10 yr. old kid says "I like it that something written a long time ago still holds up today. People have the same hopes & dreams no matter what yr. we are in."  Profound observation there Dakota. Well said. [That's not an exact quote BTW, but it's basically what the kid said.]   "Alex Of Venice" is predictable & far from a masterpiece, but actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead just feels genuine as a mother doing her best to be a competent lawyer, love her son, care for her father, laugh with her fowl mouthed sister, & feel like a vibrant, attractive woman again. Let's roll with a B- on this one because we know Dakota, Lilly, Roger, & Alex are gonna make it & be just fine eventually.    Keep an eye on Mary; She's making a name for herself in contemporary cinema. Even though this picture evokes themes of "Kramer vs. Kramer" regarding a divorced couple with a son, good acting is good acting regardless of a simple, TV of the week script.         
    • Interesting article on Moncrief last season
      probably not, but it could probably could be extrapolated. If my memory serves me right, I felt he got better as the season progressed.    The interesting points to note in that article were his expanded route tree and how well he executed them as early as week 3.
    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      Colts 10-6 (9.5) my over/under Texans 9-7 (9.5) my over/under Jags 9-7 (8.5) my over/under Titans 6-10 (6.5) my over/under -I will continue to stick with this. The Colts over/under should be placed at 9.5. They will at least win 9 IMO and if Andrew stays healthy I say 10. I am banking on Andrew staying healthy.
    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      I'll make a little friendly wager with you Bogie. If the Colts at least finish 9-7 or better you have to change your avatar to an Andrew Luck one passing the ball and if they don't I will change mine to a Drew Brees one passing. Just for 2 weeks, then we can change back. Out of respect for Prince I shouldn't even offer the bet but I think it would be fun. If you lose you can change it back in 2 weeks. You predict 7-9 so I am even increasing your count by 2 games. We wont find out what happens until December anyway.

      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.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      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!
