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

We need to dink and dunk that Texans D.

Swing Luck out of the pocket on purpose (instead of running for his life all game)

Work on the pump fake so Luck can actually throw over JJ Watt.

Stop Foster and expose Schaub. <- biggest key to game right there.

I like your attitude. :rock:

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

Another thing I think is key. B.A. said they were going to make a concerted effort to be balanced in the run game. I don't know what that is going to look like considering all the injuries at running back. I do know that you can run the ball on the Texans if you are consistent. I don't really like to use the "if this team did it, then we can do it" logic but Jacksonville was able to put up some pretty decent numbers on the Texans in the running game with Parmalee and he was a back up. Jacksonville has some of the same issues as we do on the offensive line, so I don't see why we can't replicate that with Vic Ballard who I think is better than Parmalee.

If we can get that going it will be huge, because sooner or later Luck is going to play action off that thing and hit Avery, Brazil, Hilton, or one of the tight ends for a couple big ones. Hopefully Arians will keep his promise and stay consistent with the running game because that will limit the amount of times Luck will have to throw into coverage, which will also(hopefully) decrease his likelihood of turnovers and pick 6. We'll see!

Our Tight Ends will be big in this game. As will our DB's. Tight Ends could win or lose this game depending on how good a game each of them has (Fleener and Allen), and I mean blocking and the whole nine when I say how good a game they have.

Spread them out and attack their secondary..shut down the run game and force Matt Schaub to win the game for them..force other receivers other than Andre to make a play..I think they have some 3rd and 2nd stringers on their line because of injuries so I think we will be able to pressure Schaub also..last but not least Luck needs to go to his check down options more often to negate the pass rush the Texans will bring..more specifically Watt..the other guys on the D-line are pretty much nonexistent.. I'm confident we can pull this out..the times we have played good teams this season we have been competitive..

Go Colts!

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.

W/O reading any posts yet, they will have to control the lines of scrimmage to win. And barring a miracle so huge that all major networks (including MSNBC) report that Devine intervention was witnessed at the game.... that aint gonna happen.

But there's hope, right?

Dink and dunk with short routes to get Texans Safeties and Corners to bite , roll Luck out of the pocket from there then hit them with some play..........Ah heck I forgot the O Coordinator we have to deal with!  just roll Luck out there with metal armor and hope for the best! :thmup:

Hope JJ Watt, Arian Foster, and Andre Johnson forget what time the game starts.

Honestly i just hope Luck dosnt get killed with their pass rush and our putrid offensive line.

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.

Jets, Colts Cheifs, Bucs. He would be far from an ideal situation probably but he would have been a better idea then activating Seth Olsen and hoping like heck that he doesn't actually have to be put in to play

The colts need to keep pounding the texans holes, all of them, till they give up like against the pats.

In order to win, the defense has to make Schaub be the focal point of the offense. If Foster gets any steam, Schaub's game improves exponentially. Make Schaub beat us on offense, and if he does, so be it. On defense, our only chance is to pick up the tempo with no-huddle. Both New England and Greenbay all but neutralized J.J. Watt with the quick snap attack. Their secondary is still very beatable when the pass rush isn't working. No-huddle will help make their D-line less of a factor. 

 

Last but not least (and we say it every week), the short passing game needs to be utilized by Arians. It can't all be go routes and bubble screens. There has to be a short-intermediate aspect to our attack if we want to have any success against this team.

    • How bad was the 2013 offseason?
      Reading this recap really is frustrating when you consider the opportunities missed. The Werner pick was the killer, I remember that Dustin (correctly) at the time pointed out his lack of explosive athleticism, it does make you wonder why he was rated so highly on teams' boards. Laugh in hindsight if you will but there were mocks out there putting him in the top 5!    Holmes/Hughes/Thornton I'm a little more forgiving on as there was certainly potential there. Holmes never seemed to be 100% fit during his time here, but even then as Superman said, there was no competition really for the C job. Well aside from that dog and pony show of Grigson wanting Harrison to start...    Thornton could still be a success story, especially if the offseason fluff pieces about him slimming are credible I do think he could be very good in a more ZBS. Hughes had flashes but never lived up to his physical tools. That seems to be the overriding issue with this FO, taking players who have the physical tools but need coaching up... but we've been terrible at coaching players. Maybe that changes with the wholesale coaching changes. I do think this is the first season we get to see a true Pagano staff. There better be some improvement as we've taken players again this year that are raw and need refining (Green and Ridgeway IMO).    The FA moves I think are easy to criticise with the benefit of hindsight. Cherilus you can question given his knee condition and the amount paid to him. It smacks of a knee jerk move to try and throw money at the O-line to fix it. Same with Thomas, but I think we were very unlucky with his injuries. Again though when you look at RJF/Toler it's like we're trying to find talent through trial and error. Of course this isn't the case but it does make you question the quality of player evaluation.         
    • what happy to billings?
      Never saw this coming with Billings, like another poster said, it happens every draft. I admit that I was on the want Billings bandwagon. I will definitely keep a close eye on his play this season.   
    • Other teams drafts
      I think my assessment backs up my opinion that he has been mediocre. Posted some stats that don`t look like Pro bowl material, but I am smart enough to realize every QB that played in the 2016 PB was a replacement. 2015 22nd ranked passer with the best RB in the NFL. Enough said, good day sir!

      What are you talking about? He had the 4th highest made% in the league.

      Wow that's suprisingly accurate.
