Fun Fact Of the Day

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Mack regressed because he only got 20 yards instead of scoring.  Just lol.
    • I doubt they blitz very much.  That front 7 should keep enough pressure on to keep them from having to do that.  I see what you're saying though.  LOL
    •   First,  it's NOT one game.....     the O-line was outstanding the last 6-7 games of 2016.   Second,  the line wasn't the issue why we lost Monday night.      The young quarterback was.     Brissett is a talented kid,   but he's got a lot to learn as all young quarterbacks do.        The blitzes that came in the 2nd half are blitzes that Luck can handle....    but most young quarterbacks struggle with them.      Once the offense couldn't move the ball,  we were screwed.     You can only keep the defense on the field for so long before bad things start to happen.   Look.....    you're likely going to get your wish after this season.     Pagano will get fired.    Most of the staff will likely go with him.       Are you going to throw a fit each week we melt down?       Because you'll be doing a lot of it.     And what's the point?    The staff will soon be gone,  maybe not as fast as you'd like,   but they'll be gone.      And a new staff will come in and hopefully that will lead to much, much better football.     It's just a matter of time...    
    •   You can't sidestep this problem.  He started the sitting/kneeling thing and so he's the face and the symbol of it.  People would feel that by signing him you are endorsing his protest, which is going to cost you fans.  That's just the reality of it.   He is grasping at straws, he's hurt either emotionally or financially by the fact that he's not playing.  A couple weeks ago he promised that he would stand for the anthem if he was signed.  Now he's doing this.     But he can't go back now.  That's just the way he is.  He stood up for something and now he's going to pay for it.  It's not any different with anyone else.  Taking a stand on something controversial, no matter how right or wrong you are can cost you.
