Good, rest them for the important game 2 weeks from now.

AQ and Justice out too, that probably spells 3 quarters at most for Luck. Don't want this kid to get his head taken off.

Play to win, but it's not looking good. Oh well, onto the playoffs!

No Shipley means Mcglynn at Center probably and No Justice means Linkenbach at RT, Now is the time for Luck to develop that lightening quick delivery!

And also utilize play action way better.Try a faking stretch running play, I think it would work. Exactly as Houston did on the second play against us two weeks ago. Haven't seen enough play action or mixing plays up. As of now, we are way too predictive and it doesn't benefit especially Luck when not given the time to throw the ball.

Where did you see that Shipley and Justice are out? Both practiced full today.

Could be down a WR though, Avery limited yesterday and DNP today.

Going to be a tough task IMO looking at who is banged up and will likely not play, especially on defense.

Just hope everyone comes out alive and at the same time keeping momentum. Would be huge with a win though, rookies tend to be extra vulnerable to decrease through downfalls. And we have a few rookies.  ;)

He needs 3 to break it.

Doable, he had three against us the last game. He's a exciting player, if not for ending the season against the Colts, I would have cheered for him to break it.

Well he got 3 on Luck and he only dropped back to pass, what? 22 times or something? If he's gonna drop back 30+ times then yes it could very well happen.

Agreed. He torched us last time. Absolute beast. And 23 years old. That's just scary.

Do you think the Colts gameplan will be to drop back 30+ times to pass? I mean I understand not laying down for us but, last game of the season & everything locked up, I see Luck handing the ball off a lot.

On the other hand, both Delone Carter and Donald Brown are out, so it would hurt a lot too if Ballard got hurt, and that has been the gameplan all year. So yes, I think we play it to win it, and I don't think Pagano wants our momentum taken away. I could be wrong. Just hope we utilizes play action a little better, that'll give him perhaps a second more for the play to develop.

He dropped back 34 times in the previous game. You said 22 earlier.

 

I agree that Watt could get there, but I'm hoping we run the ball a good amount. I don't care whether he breaks it against us or not, but I would like to see us a) keep him from dominating the game again, and b) win.

This game could get ugly and out of control very, very quickly....

Yeah, I'm a bit nervous too. We can't afford to get hurt, it would kill some momentum heading into the play offs.

Me neither. I easily could have missed it though.

Here's the last I found:

 

Indy Star / Phil B.

 

Only ones definitely out were:

 

DE Cory Redding (shoulder)

RB Delone Carter (foot)

C Samson Satele (ankle)

NT Antonio Johnson (ankle)

 

Connor, Avery and Tommy Z were questionable, but 'not expected to play'.

Wow, people sound like they did before the GB game. We had a banged up Freeney then and not much at CB. If we have the kind of emotion we did in that game I do like our chances. But, if we lose we lose. We are tough to get by at home so we'll see.

You can tell it's Week 17 with glance at injury report. #colts list 14 players, Houston lists 21.
 
Pagano: don't see Andrew Luck wearing down. every player is tired this time of year. You play through it. Luck's arm might be little tired
 
Pagano: Redding has "pretty significant" quad strain, but he should be OK for playoffs.
 
Mike Chappell@mchappell51 Pagano: Redding (quad) should be fine for the playoffs
 
#Colts Pagano: Andrew Luck is no more worn down than anyone else. Everybody's a little tired and nicked up. Sure his arm is a little tired.
 
Pagano at the podium: Carter, AJohnson, Satele, Redding will not play Sunday. Everybody else is game-time decision.

Redding out will be tough for the defense but you know what...next man up!  I still believe that the Colts will find a way to win this game for Chuck.  Nothing about our season has made sense thus far...so pulling this one out should be no biggie...it's only the Texans.   :D

A lot of them will play even if tired or banged up.

 

But, it does sound like Redding CAN'T likely play which is a shame. I have no doubt he likely plays next weekend with his history this season fighting through injuries, but definitely this is a case where if a guy is hurt then sit him. A few others I don't know as much about since I can't find anything in detail on them.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
