What if we win!? (Interrobang)

Recommended Posts

Archer    767

The Colts have probably been the best story in the NFL this year. The best teams in the league have now faltered a couple of times, so there's no talk about any team being historically good. The Peyton Manning story has been big, and the rookie QBs have been fun to follow. But, as good as the Colts' season has already been, what if they win this Texans game? Honestly, they've done some very improbably comebacks already, so it's not improssible that they put together a complete game and pull out a victory in Houston. And if that happens, the last game in Indy against the Texans will likely be a winner-takes-all battle for the division. A few short weeks ago, the Texans had the easy romp into the #1 seed, and no one thought the Colts were a real threat to go to the playoffs. It would be an improbable win at Houston, but this becomes a much better story if the Colts pull it out!

What if we lose? :omg:  Not saying we will, but here is a 50% chance. I just hope everyone on the forum doesn't flip out and call for players/coaches heads. This is a game we are supposed to lose so keep that in mind. Really hoping for a W, but am prepared for an L. Before you burn me at the stake keep in mind I tend to be more optimistic when it comes to our Colts.

Our last two games in Houston have not gone well. We're a completely different team now so it's going to be very interesting to see how we handle it. Honestly, I'm more concerned about keeping Andrew healthy than the outcome of this game.

We know the D isn't that good (understatement), so our only chance of winning is keeping Luck safe and playing mistake free.

BTW, I had to look up 'interrobang'. So I did learn something today. Thanks!

Anyone that "Flips Out" regardless of the score needs to be ignored.  We have already surpassed anything PEYTON OR ANY OTHER ROOKIE QB HAS ACCOMPLISHED IN THEIR ROOKIE YEAR.   Our rookie QB is surround by rookies, including rookie head coach, GM, and rookie interim head coach. This is more than the story of the year, it may be the best story in NFL history....

 

Enjoy this team and the moment, be thankful you aren't a Jags fan and look forward to a great future for this team.

We'll be 10-4, quintupling our wins of last year and we'll be in the playoffs.

 

We'll probably lose 3 spots on power rankings because of the Media doesn't like the Colts, and our wins are just flukes. <Joking,

This game would be nice to win, but either way there is nothing to complain about. This team has WELL exceeded expectations and the people who complain about this team after every loss are either hopeless pestimists or aren't Colts fans at all. No doubt this team needs work, but this should have been a rebuilding year, this team shouldn't have 9 wins, it was expected to have 5-6 at best, by most experts. Just being in the playoffs this year will be nothing short of amazing.

It's like when they ask the parents to be if they want a boy or a girl and they say "we don't care as long as he/she is healthy.  Well, I don't care if we win or lose Sunday as long as Andrew is healthy ;)

Would it not be something if we ran the table? Lol

Not impossible, I entertained the idea twice now. Regardless it will be fun to watch.......although very tough to watch on the other hand if we get blown out

A Win against the Texans would be huge.

 

It would show we could beat a good team.

 

It would show we could beat a good team on the road.

 

It would mean we are in the playoffs.

 

It would mean we could still win the division.

This is the first game that, if we win, no player will be able to say "we still haven't done anything yet". They win and they're in. That's huge for this team!

IF we win I want to see how the coaches keep them focused. KC would then be abig trap game.

-d.

If we win we are in the playoffs and all the pressure in the world goes on the Texans the rest of the season.  Should we beat KC the following week the last game of the season becomes an AFC South Title game.  The Texans would once again be slumping in December and facing questions about if they could win in December or would they once again be a let down.  They would also becoming to Indianapolis a place where they have never won needing to win to win the South and oh by the way that's the target for Pagano's return which means there will be one jacked monster wearing blue that Sunday.  I also think Gary Kubiak's job would be on the line.  If they were to play themselves out of homefield in the playoffs and all the way down to a wildcard team that might very well do him in baring a major run in the playoffs. 

 

For the Colts they have a shot to complete maybe the most remarkable turnaround in NFL history.  To go from 2-14 to 12-4 (which would be possible) would be amazing when you factor in everything else we over came in the process.  We would have our playoff spot which to many would already be gravy so this would be extra big gravy.

    • Meh, these guys make millions. If they aren't smart enough to take out long term care insurance with some of that money then it's on them. 
    • So many assumptions here, I don't know where to begin:       How does Steve Young know what Andrew is thinking?        There's no effort on the part of the Colts FO, Owner and/or coaching staff to improve the team around him.        There's no talent on this team besides Andrew.          Andrew can void his contract and just decide to leave.        He would be on a losing team for his career, if he stayed.         While we can all agree that the team around him has to improve, not only for the sake of his health but for him to have a successful career, the means to that improvement can come from a new influx of players and/ or coaches or from existing players and coaches getting better each week.     If you think about individual players and ask yourself if you are glad they are Colts, you can make the case that there is more to this team than Andrew.     As far as Ballard, I'm glad the Colts landed him. If the goal is to build a team around him, he is an important piece.      I want to see how this coaching staff does when the injured players return.        At very least, what is happening now is good for the team as a whole. Young players are getting reps and depth is being built. The defense is playing together and as a result familiarity and communication should improve.      If this team keeps improving, the wins will come. Andrew could return to a team that may be the best he has played with so far. I know these are assumptions on my part but to assume things won't change (one way or another) is a bigger assumption IMO.  
    • I guess if he really wanted to, he could pull a Carson Palmer and retire, then sign with a different team. I wish we had more positive stories to talk about. But negativity is what always sells and gets the most response. 
    • The Rams and 49ers scored more points last night than on any other Thursday night game ever. Goff seems to be headed in the right direction and the coach Sean McVay may know something. Great ending as well.
