Colts vs Talent

19 posts in this topic

Maybe Im thinking to much into this as a Colts fan, but has any team faced as much TALENT as the Colts have this season?

If I were to make a list of the Top 15 RB in the NFL, the Colts would have played nearly all of them this season.

AP, Forte, Richardson, CJx2, Fosterx2, MJD, Spiller/Jackson, Charles.....

And when we didn't play those super stud RBs? We had the high octane Packers Off. The amazing Patriots Off. And the freak of nature Calvin Johnson.

The only teams really devoid of talent were the Jets (beat down) and the Dolphins (whom we set records against).

Can anyone think of another team playing as much TALENT as we have this year?

That's the thing about the NFL, there is TALENT all over the place.  My guess is yes, there are other teams that played against a lot of TALENT this year.

Ya. But face 8 of the top 10rbs? The #1 WR? Pats/Pack. That's a tall order.

We have faced some great Backs all year this sunday will not be different. We have to get them one dimensional early.

We played against some good individual players (just like everyone else in the NFL), but we sure did play alot of bad teams:

 

Jax 2x

Tenn 2x

KC

Cle

Mia

Buf

Det

NY Jets

 

That's 10 games against teams with a combined record of 38-90.

And we won 80% of them. So your point is?

The Jets have serious talent, they just have a dysfunctional coach.

and no QB at all.  Honestly they might be the only team in the league that can say KC had a better QB situation than they did.

I wish AP got 9 more yards against us.....

I was hoping that game winning fg last night would be missed so ap could get the record in overtime... The guy deserves it. To work that hard and come nine yards short... I felt bad for him

That defense as a whole are pretty good.  It's kinda a no name defense and the o-line is pretty good.  It's the skill positions on offense that they are hurting at.

That just goes to show that even lousy teams have talent, and we did play lousy teams this year.  We did what we had to do, but the schedule was very weak.  Still a great season by any measure though.....

    • I always said last year that Brock had a lot of potential to be good. And no it was not "she wants to bash Peyton" kinda stuff either even though many had blinders on to how the backup behind Peyton was more then adequate. I really really DID like how Brock looked at times and the guy has a great arm. He had his issues with a few games clearly and some bad moments (particularly in a few divisional games) and has work to do now being young and on a new team. But, I cringed hard when he signed with Houston. AFC South has 4 young QBs now with a lot of potential which is worrying to some degree.   Houston will be better at QB, period. You can't get much worse then they were last year there. They had Brandon Weeden for crying out loud in their game vs. us and they won. I am very interested to see their rematch with the Chiefs early in the season since Kansas City is another very very underrated team heading into the season who is solid on both sides of the ball and I think KC could be a legit SB contender with how the AFC currently looks. Keep in mind you don't always need to have the golden boy QB, Manning is gone now and Brady is the only one really left in the AFC with the super glossy elite resume. Big Ben is always hurt too. We might head into a direction in the AFC where strong defenses with "good enough" QBs get by, like the Ravens in 2012.   I have this strange hunch Houston could be an 11-5 type of team if they stay out of major injury holes but I would not bet money on it either with how recent history has been. But, I believe Houston has been 9-7 the last few years, all it would take is a few breaks for them to increase to say 11-5.   This isn't all based on preseason either, Houston had a good defense LAST YEAR and actually shows up to play strong defense at times. Brock also looked solid to me at times LAST YEAR and might only get better. Now you combine it all and Houston has more potential at times then Colts fans might often want to admit out loud. The Houston coaching staff is underrated too at times managing all these woeful QBs and injuries.   Of course not saying the Colts can't win the division either but our o line leaves a lot to be desired and the secondary can be a joke.   This isn't the old days with Manning/Dungy where 12-4 was a natural given right almost.     Narcosys mentioned the Titans being good. I have not paid as much attention to them and always figured they might be a year or two away. But, they have nowhere to go but up too.   The Jags baffle me, they have a lot of pieces that spell out "good team" but have never been able to put together this consistent win streak. Once a year though they give us fits. Last year they had a shot and then lost some game to the Chargers killing their chances, thats why the Jags baffle me.     Overall the AFC South is not going to be easy maybe as years past. The QB situation is getting better and the Colts are a little behind in this development around Luck as a team. I think Luck looks terrific right now and healthy, but seeing him knocked around on the field etc. worries me greatly.
    • I really only pay attention to what happens when the starters are playing significant minutes usually in the 3rd preseason game.  No one seemed worried about how poorly the starters played against Philly last season in the preseason.  But that same crappy team showed up in the first to regular season games.  Chuck put an emphasis on playing well this preseason in hopes to avoid the slow start again.  That OL is poor at best against a good front 7.  It's saying something when the plan was to play Luck into the 3rd quarter and Chuck didn't send him back out because he was taking such a beating.  I just don't see this team magically improving when the regular season starts.  
    • No.     We are NOT cutting Castanzo.       We just signed him to a NEW contact one year ago.   So,  the Dead Cap money would be huge.      We have to coach him up and get him back to his previous level of play.   We're not cutting him.     Get the thought out of your head.  
    • Why stop at posting this terrible thread twice?
    • I had to ask my wife to read the title of this post because I couldn't believe my eyes.  Yes she said, That is what they're asking.  Thanks hon, time to call it a day.
