for the colts to beat the texans, the colts need to.............

57 posts in this topic

finish the sentence.

i think the colts need to get away from the deep route 5 wide all go sets because luck just wont have to the time to look down the field especially playing someone like jj watt. we need quick screens slants hooks comebacks and curls. i rather luck rollout then stay in the pocket so he can get more time. utilize play action. these texans love to get after the qb so we have to use that against them. on defense we have try to limit foster as best as we can. texans love to run between the guards and tackles and outside the tackle so we need to use the speed of our defense to try to stop him. id recommend having freeman or bethea on him at all times. most importantly we need to get to schaub. we cant have him standing in the pocket scanning the field or else hes gonna pick us apart.

With the injuries we have on offense.....

......we have to get 4 or 5 turnovers......we do not have the personell top stop them

and we need to have Luck hit on something like 65% .... 35 of 50 passing...over 400 yards

The Colts need to...

1. Make the Texan's offense one dimensional by focusing on stopping the run.

2. Have Vontae Davis cover Andre Johnson the entire game, and make the Texans rely on other receivers.

3. Luck needs to connect on his deep throws.

4. Luck needs to run for first downs, making the Texan's defense have to worry about him out of the pocket, opening up the middle for our receivers.

All this is moot if we the O-line can't block. ;)

Colts Need to: Tie Arians up in a dark room & make him watch the video of Mathis Alma Mater dance he did Sunday after the Tenn Game.

Luck then calls his plays from Stanford implementing a short passing game keeping Luck safe. After we Win 24-21 the team retrieves Arians

and he declares that he'll use short passes more. At first he declined but Andrews Neck beard grew a fist and hit Arians. He cried then accepted. Team then heads out Reliant Stadium and flies back to Indy.

Win the turnover battle.

We can't give the Texans the ball on a short field and this is not a team you can expect a rookie QB to march the ball 80 yards on every time. If we can give Luck some short fields and not give the Texans easy points we will have a shot.

Simply limit the turn overs. Stay stout on run defense like we have been doing. Double Andre Johnson, and Double JJ Watt in the same manner as the Patriots did. We win if we stay consistent with these things

The Texans aren't that hard to beat.

I live in Houston and it's plain as day.

First slam Schaub to the ground and he will get rattled and cry like a baby.

Plug the holes and stop Foster and cover Andre Johnson like a blanket.

Get out to an early lead and the Texans cannot handle it. They will fold and the fans will turn on them and start to boo by the end of the first half.

The Texans know that their window is closing after this year because Luck will be good enough then to own them for years to come like PM did.

1. Stop the run, Schaub can't get it done without a running game.

2. Pass on their weakened secondary and LBers.

3. Don't make stupid turnovers because they will have a hard time creating them themselves.

4. When their running game becomes unreliable, Schuab has been knocked around a few times, look for a pick.

1. Run the ball with Ballard and get first downs so that Luck can play action pass most of the day and the Colts can control the clock

2. Score TD's in the red zone.

3. Sack Schaub 4 or 5 times and keep pressure on him especially when he rolls out.

4. Tackle, tackle, tackle in the open field

Yeah, that's about it. Not easy, but the last two years in Houston they ran us to death and both games got away from us fast. The pass protection has to be better than the first half of the game against the Titans, so please, no empty backfield sets. Luck can meet JJ at the pro bowl. They don't need to get close before that.

This team seems to really make adjustments. If we can stay close, we always have a great chance at the end.

1. Everytime JJ Watt stops applying pressure to jump and swat at Luck`s passes, our O lineman need to put him on his keister. He`s going to do it, we all know that .Want to jump, Boom!

2. Find a way to win, dont care what the stats are or if it takes 59 minutes and 59 seconds to take the lead. Just get it done!

If the Colts win this game, It will turn into the "miracle season" forever. I know the Texans don't want this......... can't wait

Simple dink and dunks will shrink the defense making there secondary only needing to cover for 2-3 seconds. You at least need to have a deep threat to spread them out. I'd bring the stretch play back and make there D-line and Linebackers play the entire field,also the end around might be good too (even though it really never works). They are on a short week so I'd like to see long sustained drives that keeps there Defense on the field as much as possible. I'd also go no huddle (not hurry up) so they can't substitute players on drives.

On defense I'd stop the run and make Schaub throw to win. I could see Cory Redding having an excellent game. I'd force Schaub into 3rd and longs and make him check to his 3rd option giving our dline some time to get some hits on Schaub.

If we play this game right we shouldn't have to score a bunch to win. I would say 20-24 pts probably wins this game.

Eliminate all turnovers. Don't let drives stall out. Find rhythm early. Give Luck time to work. Give Ballard holes to run. Stop Foster, Schaub, and Johnson and we've got it.

    • Thanks for your link above to such a fascinating article NCF. I keep coming back to something Shannon Sharpe always says on his new FS1 TV show called "Skip & Shannon"...Real meaningful social change always needs to make others uncomfortable in order to succeed & promote a large shift in daily society & Mr. Sharpe is exactly right. Nothing will change for the better without ruffling some feathers thru rebellion against the way things are. History has demonstrated this fact for decades & centuries. Relax, I'm not about to lead an angry mob with pitch forks & torches here.    The other thing I noticed is when the President of the Players Association said he reached out to Colin Kaep by phone for support I laughed because if the Niners released him tomorrow & Kaep wasn't in the league anymore, would Mr. Smith even care? I highly doubt it. We only care if that QB is on a football roster. The 49ers give him a platform to express his views globally. Take that access away & Colin virtually becomes irrelevant overnight as a celebrity with clout & a public figure of stature.    Bringing up boxer Mohammad Ali was fascinating too because he paid a heavy price for his views not to serve overseas in SE Asia, which pales in comparison to the minor heat Colin is enduring right now. It's not even close. 
    • These guys who kneel or sit for the anthem are PEACEFULLY protesting, they are not hurting a fly......It's MLK style protesting with nothing but being peaceful about it. They are not violent or hurting ANYONE directly. They are just expressing their personal views and some do care about those who are oppressed even if they themselves have money.   If you crack down on the players individuality too much down the road then you might as well call it the "National Fascist League."     Ratings may be down since a lot of late night games suck too. How many times this year have the Bears been on at night for example? And a lot of stars are out this year........and a few have retired like Manning who was a face of the league for so long. MNF this past week sucked with the Falcons destroying the Saints bad defense.   Brady is out for another week and I bet Pats games sky rocket in ratings with his return. JJ Watt is now out. Adrian Peterson is out. The list goes on.......   People get bored. And actually the peaceful protesting gives the NFL attention so in a way they should be thankful for it. If people don't watch since a few sit or kneel for the Anthem then I give up on those people and it just further proves the point of someone like Kaepernick. 
    • Problem here is most fans only see the te as pass catching.  They don't factor in blocking at all.     Check out gores to run and see where Allen took his dude
    • I wake up at 4:30 for work, so 4 more hours of sleep and eating breakfast during a Colts game sounds fanfreakingtastic to me!
    • JV....   It appears you're right.     I just surfed the net looking for information one way or the other.     And here is an interview with DeMaurice Smith the head of the NFLPA,  and in the interview he says there is nothing in the CBA giving the players a right to protest.       Interesting.    Directly contradicts what I heard.   But if Smith is saying it,  it has to be true.      I'll link the interview....   https://www.thenation.com/article/what-the-nfl-players-union-chief-has-to-say-about-colin-kaepernicks-protest/   For some unknown reason,  the website is not letting my cut and paste the quote...    something about formatting issue....    but the answer is the 2nd paragraph after the question about what would the union do to support the players.....            
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
