Play-off bound...Will we play luck next week?

42 posts in this topic

I think we needs our guys to play. at least try to not allow the Texans to get a bye. but if the game gets out of hand we can consider resting guys.

I am not sure that Luck needs to be facing that pass rush for the whole game, next week.

This team is not good enough to rest. What do we want to rest healthy guys for? Our "Super Bowl" run?

 

Pagano is coming back. I expect starters and back ups to play inspired.

 

 

We need a good performance.

He has to play. He's still got much to improve on and that's not going to happen sitting on the sidelines.

That game is going to be significant. The Texans will probably be playing for a first round bye, and we might have a chance to lock up the 5th seed, get a game against the Bengals or Ravens, and avoid the Patriots, Broncos or Texans. 

 

Luck doesn't sit. No one sits.

With the level of Luck's play today, and that of the offense, someone honestly feels it would be a good idea to sit him, a rookie QB, next week?  He looked worse today than he has all year.  I'm fairly certain he could use the reps.

Luck and anyone healthy should play. Still too much inconsistency from the O to rest and expect a strong performance.

 

Anyone banged up...rest em.

Exactly...no way we half tail it with Coach Pagano returning back to the sidelines after the fight of his life.  The team will play to win for Coach...period.

I think Luck should play but this OL might get him killed. This is official I hate the OL day, I'm sick of this and it makes me sick to my stomach.

I thought that today's win locked up the 5th seed.

I have a feeling our young roster is running into that rookie wall...but we can't afford to rest our guys. We have to play through it. In the short term, it gives us a better chance of winning a playoff game. Long term, it's important that our rookies get the experience of playing through the grind.

Luck has lots of room to improve if the Colts want to win a playoff game.....I'd play him at least the majority of the game next week.

I'm not sure, but I really hope so. Our offense looked out of sync all game today. They need as much work as possible. Plus, I want to keep that streak alive of beating Houston at home. :)

This isn't a nothing game. The Texans will try and the Colts must too.

 

This game will be good practice for Luck. You can't be benching a rookie quarterback before the playoffs.

If we beat Houston next week, while the Broncos and Patriote both win out, Houston will drop to the #3 seed.

There's no way we're sitting Luck.

This is what I said in your "play to win" thread. We are just not that good to be resting players. They need all the reps they can get.

It did.

 

I'm not sure. The Bengals can still win the North, and I think the Ravens would own a tie breaker over us for the 5th seed.

I don't want to "help" Houston either. I mean when we helped the Titans in 2007 I wanted to barf......

Watt may get the sack record against Luck. Watt only needs 2.5 sacks. We have got to keep Luck healthy. I would like to see every healthy person play.

Doesn't effect us. we owned all Tie breakers other than if we tied NYJ

But if the Bengals win the division, the Ravens would only have 9 wins.  So yes, the Colts clinched the #5.

I had been paying most attention to the tie breakers vs. the Bengals and Steelers. Hadn't looked at the Ravens so much. If it's true that we have the five seed locked up, then great.

I know, I mean Texans lose they can be #3 if Pats/Broncos take care of business in the finales.

I've decided that "If I ran the zoo", Luck would sit.

In fact I don't see any gain in risking him, when we all know he's going to get rocked.

Sit him. It's a smart move.

Or we could try some tweaks to see if we can handle the Texans rush, should we meet again.

 

I'm really not worried about Luck getting hurt.

Yes, the Colts have clinched the #5 seed on common games.  I hope that's the last time I have to think about the tie-breaking procedures for a year. :)

I'm not worried either, but we probably should be, in a meaningless game against a D line that will get to Luck all game. The adjustments won't matter, if the last 15 games are any indication.

I think Luck has been rattled too much lately and a week off for him might really be a good thing anyway.

We should give a lot of our backups some PT.... wait... we already are!  ;)

 

Don't rest. Give them the work, good for the future.

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
