Win or lose - we should be 49ers fans this Sunday

35 posts in this topic

If we win vs the Texans this weekend, we have a shot at a division and a bye week (if we win out). So, we will be Ravens fans and 49ers fans to get as many losses for our AFC rivals Broncos and Patriots that are potential division leaders. Yes, I may be dreaming of a bye week but if I am going to dream at this point, why not make it big? :) We are discussing hypotheticals after all. :) We hold the tie-breaker over Broncos if Ravens beat the Broncos and we win out (since Broncos lost to Pats and Texans while we potentially can beat Texans twice for a bye week). Both Broncos and Colts would then have 3 AFC losses and 1 NFC loss. Next tie-breaker is common opponents.

If we lose, we will be 49ers fans so that the last game matters a little less for the Texans and should we depend on that last game for whatever reason, Texans probably play their starters for about a half, IMO.

Thoughts????

I pick a side in every game I watch whether it's playoffs, week 2, or some other meaningful game.

Now the side I pick can be for various reasons.

I'm all about scenarios playing out that puts the Colts at a 2 seed. Why on earth would you be against it.

Realistically, it's not likely and I don't think anyone who follows closely would disagree.

The fact that it's possible is pretty amazing, but our guys have to play lights out in Houston and win for this to be on the radar as a real possibility.

While we are pipe dreaming, why not the Vikings week 16 over the Texans? I mean if the Colts do it, surly AP has some kinda shot.

Do we hold a tie breaker over Denver?

Not till we win out :), so there are some assumptions there. :)

I wonder if Harbaugh will only evaluate Brady or if he will pursue trying to stop him :).

I don't. We're talking about Harbaugh. He wants to pound everyone.

Harbaugh: 49ers evaluated Manning, didn't pursue

"The 49ers were "evaluating" Manning, not pursuing or "flirting" with him. "It's silly and it's untrue. It's phony," he said..."There would be no circumstance that we would have let Alex Smith go. Now, were we out there seeing, evaluating if we could have them both? Heck, yeah. And you evaluate that, you eliminate the possibility."

Okay there Jim, so if a woman pours water over her date's head & tells them to burn in Hades can we assume that there will me no upcoming nuptials in his immediate future too?

But, what do I know right, I'm merely "evaluating" the situation... :lol::funny::spit:

I think we have to eventually forget the notion that Houston is going to just give us the last game....

..where did that start?

With that said....If we lose Sunday....we want SF to beat NE so Denver gets the No.2 seed..and the Colts dont face Peyton Manning.

The Colts want to play Baltimore

The thing is, if the Texans have banged up players but have wrapped up HFA, they are more likely to rest them not having to gain much from that last game, increasing our chances for a win.

Broncos beating the Ravens accomplishes the same thing of the Colts being in line to play Baltimore, though SF beating NE would be better more for Broncos and Broncolt fans for bye week reasons. :)

I'm more interested in seeing the matchup because I feel that these are two of teh best teams in the NFL and I really am anxious to see if the Patriots are really that much better than everyone else.

Of course I'll root for captain comeback because he is still one of my favorite colts of all time and I despise the patriots (even though I respect BB a great deal and have a special place in my heart as was DC when the Giants beat Joe Montana and eventually win the SB vs the Bills. A day no New Yorker will ever forget).

I doubt the Ravens will beat the Broncos, but you never know.

I like Jim Harbaugh because his hand shake is 2nd only to Chuck Norris'.

My 2nd favorite team (behind the Colts) is whoever plays the Pats.

After all is said and done, I think your last statement will matter most. Winning the division and getting a bye is a long shot at best and I think that will be out of reach at Sunday around 4PM. What matters most to me is getting the 5th seed with the hopes that the Ravens are the opponent.

The Texans want the # 1 seed above all else, right?

The point is if they have that wrapped up by the last game, and the best way for that to happen is for the 9ers to win on Sunday, the Dec 30th Colts v. Texans game may not matter at all for that seeding. So not only would they have nothing to play for, they may decide to sit out players to get healthy and prevent injury.

    • Haeg went in the 5th 155th player picked. Our pick I liked least was Morrison in the 4th making him the 125th player taken. I saw him go undrafted in some mocks. NFL.com had him a 7th - proirity FA. I was surprised.   There were a lot of options on the board at 125 I do recall that. Judon was one of them Ravens took him 21 players later the 146th player picked.  I was hoping for D. Hall CB or Robinson CB LSU I liked Judon and RB Dixon there as well.  
    • That doesn't really conflict with what I saw.  I am not quite as optimistic overall because we really need to win early as our second half of the schedule is brutal so it's critical to be at least 6-2 the first half if we have sights on a great season, though reading this I just saw the Mewhort isn't gone for season? That's big big news and really changes a lot once he's back.  Of course it seems usually when the Colts say 2-4 weeks, it turns out to be 6-8 weeks, but let's hope for once their optimism is true.     I think Castonzo is a serious problem.  Not sure how you fix him as you'd think it is a mental problem rather than health because it has carried over across last season until now.  Philbin has his work cut out.  
    • We need to take a page out of the Patriots notebook.  Their line was very average last year, yet the offense put up great numbers.  If your offensive line has trouble pass blocking and can't run block, you need to turn the short passing game into your running game.  Short, quick drops and dump it off or throw darts on quick slants.  Patriots kill teams doing that.  We did beat the Broncos with less talent on offensive line last year so I'm still hopeful Chud will game plan better against good defensive teams like the Eagles during the regular season.
    • Still don't know how Walden is still on the team, not even a pay cut.
    • I'm with Kaepernick. Sorry to all who may be offended. I'll spare you the diatribe except to say that we have (and have always had) a serious problem with our criminal justice system and it's a national disgrace. Nothing Kaepernick will ever do can disparage our union nearly as much as crime and punishment statistics do.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
