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?

He didnt run 'all day' on us.

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.

Colts win Bengals loose Colts go to Denver. What a game that would be. I'm actually hoping it comes into play. Talk about the hype. Off the chart

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.....

    • lol stats are the facts not an opinion which you offer and nothing else, you say he holds onto the ball to long and ribbles a lot...I showed you proof he does not. You said he Is a bad defender....Clearly he is not as the stats show. How about if I got to the previous year and pick up stats from those same categories? Are they cherry picked to? Not likely because some of them were not good so it supports your narrative that he is bad player.   Calling me stupid is pretty childish by the way...I thought you were better then that. Maybe I'm wrong?   Yes he has skills like Lebron, He can pass well, He can rebound well, He is hard to stop when attacking the basket. He has good basketball instincts on the court. Now the reason he don't put up those numbers is because he isn't as aggressive as those guys . You also forget when he put up those numbers for the Pacers it was in his second year starting. You also disregard that while his points were low with the Clippers he still shot 49.4% and 40% from 3 http://espn.go.com/nba/player/stats/_/id/4244/lance-stephenson He did not fit what the Clippers already had on offense. They to many guys dominating the ball...Crawford. Paul as should. Rivers.   And then when he got traded to the Grizzlies because Rivers wrongly thought he could not play defense he still shot 47.4% and 35% from 3 and had 14.2 points a game for them in 26.6 minutes and only 26 starts plus a double double   You even hear Buckner saying Lance found the right man on a pass and most of these passes are simple passes, Particularly for him. They also help players around him who cant create there own shot help get them an open shot (Scola, West multiple times). Now where Lance was awful at was in catch an shoot situations where he was only 35.1% in 2015 but he averaged less than 1 of those a game in 2015
    • that may be a low estimate         
    • I think the jury is still out on the O-line, though I like that additions (player and coaching) that we saw in the offseason.   The bigest concern IMO is the Pass Rush.  Ideally, Mathis and Cole can have a good year and Maggitt can learn quickly.  
    • Fair enough. My point really was it's much harder to win League MVP than it is SB MVP IMO. To win League MVP you have to be Great for a whole season, to win SB MVP you only have to be Great for 1 day and sometimes only Good. When Tom won SB MVP in 2001 he didn't even play Good. If I included SB MVP's, Tom would still only be up 9-8 for that 3rd criteria. I would much rather win League MVP and a SB compared to winning a SB MVP and a SB. As long as my team won the SB it wouldn't bother me at all if I didn't win SB MVP. Ben never has and nobody ever brings it up, they just talk about his 2 wins. I do think it's important to have at least 1 though just to say you won 1, hence my signature at the bottom. I noted Peyton winning 1 here.
    • http://www.todayspigskin.com/nfl-draft/pre-season-2017-nfl-mock-draft/   We picked Derek Barnett at 21, although I would've switched him with Charles Harris (at the moment) as I think he's a better scheme fit. Still and all, good player at a position of need. Interesting to see how high the running backs were projected to go!
