QB Ricky Stanzi could start vs our Colts Sunday. Apparently Brady Quinn is nursing sore ribs, and they don't trust Matt Cassell. Per Rotoworld. I have no idea who Ricky Stanzi is.

He was the Iowa QB for a while. He's 25 so he is relatively young, and has been out of Iowa for 2 seasons now, I think.

I am giving this improved Colts team 8 wins this year. I think we will go 8-8 in 2013-14.   (July 24, 2013)

The simulators say so.  The printed scenarios do not.  Not exactly sure why.  Someone with enough energy would have to run through all the scenarios step-by-step and do the math.

I'll still root for the Titans, guess most importantly they just focus on beating the Cheifs, then focus on beating he Texans.

Might as well just win the next two games!!!!!!!!!

This bodes well for our team.  Quinn hasn't been spectacular, but Arrowhead is a tough place to play and Jamaal Charles is playing well.


When Bob Sanders executes a push up, he does not push himself up. He pushes the world down.
When Bob Sanders was 12, a cobra bit him in the leg. After 4 days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
Tom Brady can throw a football pretty far. Bob Sanders can throw Tom Brady even farther.

Brady Quinn gives us a better shot to win than Ricky Stanzi, IMO.

 

Quinn is terrible, inaccurate, and streaky for a half at best. Stanzi, if protected well, can definitely be more accurate from all that I have seen of him.

Stanzi is brutal. If the Chiefs pull out a W over us this week, we don't deserve to even think about being in the playoffs. lol. 

 

Hopefully it's our first victory where i'm not on the edge of my seat and I can just sit back and say "oh yeah, we got this one" like the old days.

If I remember correctly, The Indianapolis Colts went into the Meadowlands on October 14 and were humiliated by the New York Jets 35-9.  I also remember Blaine Gabbert beating us on and 80 yard TD.

 

I do not care if it is Ricky Stanzi, Ricky Ricardo, Ricky Bobby.........or the ghost of Montana's Past.....we better wake up and play in all phases of the game.  We cannot think we are a remotely good football team after the comedy of errors last week.  Film, practice, and 60 minutes of football is needed at one of the toughest venues to play in....in the entire NFL......the place will be rocking....on a very chilly Sunday afternoon.

 

Yes we had better be ready for Charles.......and the entire Chiefs team....we NEED this game.   :colts:  :colts:  :colts:

Great... a new QB with very little film. either this is very good, or very bad. he is not the main option on Offense so we have to stop the run. we allow any qb the abilit to play action and we are doomed.

LOL, yes funny to us now.  But, there was a time before Painters senior year at Purdue where he was tlaked about being2nd and even possibly first round talent.  And check this thread at footballs future-

 

http://www.footballs...ic.php?t=233232

 

Some had him right in the mix with Bradford and Stafford!! :woah:

One guy had him pegged, though -

 

"At this point I see him as a complete system QB who folds against the better competition every.single. time.
I need to watch him more, but I've never been a fan. I see a 4th rounder who benefits greatly from the spread. For being such a great leader he sure does let his team down in big games. *shrug* "

Can everybody please stop talking about how tough it is to play at Arrowhead? Were not playing the stadium, were not playing the fans, were playing a bad team that has won one game at home all yr., and that was a highly emotional game for them after the murder/suicide. Weather is not going to be a factor, it's suppose to be around 40 degree's and partly sunny. Not exactly intimidating weather and it looks like they are going to be going against a 3rd string QB. You can never overlook an opponent, but come on.

I don't see him being any better or worse than Quinn or Cassell. With Bowe out they're going to have to rely heavily on Charles and Hillis. As for the passing game, they'll be targeting Breaston and Baldwin which is good. McCluster is quick but a strong wind will knock him over (and I think its supposed to be windy). Moeoki may pose a threat but up until this point Crennell has been absolutely clueless as to how to utilize what could be a very good weapon for the Chiefs, so I'm not losing any sleep over him. Overall, I'm looking forward to seeing the Colts clinch their playoff birth in person.

Stanzi is nothing special. Got to see him first hand once when Iowa played MSU and watched him a few times on TV. Definitely not a world-beater back in college by any stretch of the imagination. He was very up and down. Transfer that to the NFL and my guess is he is in way over his head. I mean he is a 3rd string QB for the CHIEFS after all. Like someone said earlier, if we can't beat a bad KC team then we don't deserve to be in the playoffs. However, I feel pretty good going with the Colts on this one.

Quin actually beat out stanzi for number 2 spot with that being said he must be pretty bad and he runs 4.93 40 so don't think he's a very mobile quarterback. At 6 4 he can prob see field good but as long as we get pressure on him he should look like painter

I don't like the idea of us going up against a QB who we have no film on, with nothing to lose. Our secondary is bad enough to make bad QB's look good.

    I hate the media. The headline is Oregon QB Marcus Mariota only taking 2 classes..Golf and Yoga. What they left out is that he already graduated in 3 years, with over a 3.0 GPA in General Science, and STILL has 2 years of eligibility left.
