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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

Run the ball vs. Houston.

 

I mean if we get someone hurt what happens? We blow our SB or bust season. lmao

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.

    •   I have a feeling the Colts will struggle to sell out next year. Protests, concussions, off the field issues, and team relocations are turning people off from the NFL.   I’m jaded right now, and only watching the Colts games. I make sure none of the TVs in my house are on a channel of any NFL Game or NFL show. I used to watch the NFL Network religiously, but now I make sure it’s never on my TV, and I am thinking about dropping the channel. I would never miss the RedZone, but haven’t even turned it on in 3 weeks.   I am not breaking my perfect streak of watching Indianapolis Colts games, but the NFL isn’t going to see another dime from me, and I don’t care about any other games. 
    •   Remember there are offensive and defensive ROTY  awards. Malik Hooker still could have been a candidate, whether Kareem Hunt literally runs away with the offensive one.
    • It shows he can play and lets him get that hurdle out of the way and avoid a year longs rust from building up.     I also don’t think it’s the mentality of a punch drunk boxer, it’s a competitor who wants to play and help his teammates.  Now should the coaches let him play?  That’s a different story.     There is going to come a time when Luck is completely healthy and sitting him isn’t going to get him anymore healthy and playing him isn’t going to make him anymore exposed to an injury than anyother player is.  I get the impression from what Ballard has said about Luck they aren’t going to even entertain playing him until he reaches that point. So I think if does comeback it’s because he is healthy and sitting him isn’t going to help him anymore and they will want to knock the rust off, see what he has, give the fans hope for the future (yes that’s a factor), Show potential free agents he’s healthy, and let him get over the mental hurdle any athlete has after coming back from a major injury that he can still play and be alright.  Some of those matter a whole lot more than others but they are all reasons for him to play regardless of the record if he’s healthy.
    • If he is learning anything from being a lame human statute it is, "Never play  against Sacksonville again." Only a guy like Russell Wison is  going to avoid what just happened to Brissett 10 times.
    • He was shell shocked and banged up I think he should have been yanked.  He wasn’t learning anything standing back there while the Jags were teeing off.
