We are 10-5. If we loose next week that puts us at 10-6, our very same record as Manning's last season. With what we have surrounding Luck we got the same Ws as we did with Manning in 2010. There can be no description of just how impossible that was stated to be in the beginning of the season.

 

Even more if we win next week(Doubtful with Texans playing for something and us playing for nothing) we will be 11-5 with MORE WINS than we had in 2010. Simply beautiful. So proud of this team.

I'm proud of this team too. But Peyton willed us to that record with even less around him than Andrew has. Remember all the injuries?

I remember all the injuries but we still had a better all around team then than now.

Not at the end of the season, IMHO.

I disagree. We had many of the same holes we have now, plus some (no corners that season, Aaron Francisco at safety). We had a far inferior coaching staff. I think, sans the quarterbacks, the 2012 team is better than the 2010 team was.

 

The point still stands, though. It's remarkable that we've won 10 games.

I love what we've done, so happy, but our schedule has been very very weak this season. The years are totally different.

Agreed on the similar holes but a few of our wins this season have come from a simple roll going our way vs it going towards the opponent. Plus the argument that the 2010schedule was harder than the 2012 plays a factor as well. Regardless it's a good time to be an Indy fan.

According to PFW , the 2012 Colts are the team most effected by injuries. Start with the D Line. 4 players counted to contribute there. Go to the O Line , been horrible there. Lost 2 Rb's for extended time. Starting CB's .. Davis and Powers. Lost a safety. Angerer and Conner at LB. I guess been healthy at QB , both kickers and WR. Rest of the roster ripped apart by injuries.

There's injuries, then there are quality injuries. The 10 team lost a lot of great players. We have Powers and 2 D starters who are interchangeable lost on D. Collie is the only quality guy I can think of on O.

I'm still proud of this team thogh.

This is true , but then again that 2010 had way more talent... right ? We lost Freeney for a few games , we lost Mathis for a few games , we lost Davis for a few games ... other than Luck and Wayne , what good player did we not lose for a period of time. Point is some are saying the 2012 team had more talent than the 2010 team. My point iis both were beset with injuries

2012 Colts Poem

 

In 2011, we had a terrible year,

But you didn't see us shed a tear.

Our Players didn't pass the buck,

We went and drafted Andrew Luck.

 

And then we hear through the media,

Coach Pagano has leukemia.

We left the lights on, all the long,

To show we were still ColtsStrong.

 

As the year ends, where are we?

In the playoffs, unexpectedly.

Now we light our homes with Blue,

To show we're Colts Fans, through and through.

Plus Blaire White started 4 games in 2010.  We also now have an infinitely better coaching staff, imo, than what we had back then. 


They say you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar, but does anyone know what the final tally was?  And why didn't they try manure?  And if they did, how would that have changed the saying?  Would it be, "you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar, but you'll catch the most if you're full of crap?"

    I was listening to CBS sideline Thursday Night Football reporter Tracy Wolfson talk about Saints WR Kenny Stills having to "tape up his groin" in the 2nd half & that phrase made me cringe because ankles I get, but tape & a sensitive region of the body doesn't sound all that wonderful to me. Enough said.

    Preparing for my second Indy trip. A stopover but a long trip none the less. I want a Colts victory but wonder what the Indy weather surprise me. Last year on my first trip to the LOS it was cold, my first trip this year it rained!
