Playoff Scenario

13 posts in this topic

Well, I guess I could root for the Texans this week ! 

haha, if you want to go to Mile High and visit Peyton, you should be.

 

I, on the other hand, will be rooting for the Ravens, Bengals, Redskins and Vikings.

 

Kind of interesting how we are each rooting for another team in our division  :dunno:

The Bengals are playing some of the best defense in the NFL right now. Maybe the Texans will get things back on track (particularly with their o-line and secondary), but if they don't they are in for a rough day.

 

I'd rather play the Broncos in the divisional round. The Ravens played them well a few weeks ago and then things fell apart, but they showed a lot positives (holding Manning to 208 yards and just one TD). The Broncos are on a winning streak that is bound to end and the bye week will halt their momentum, while a win for the Ravens will provide great momentum.

 

Still have to win tomorrow though!

What has to happen for the COLTS vs. BRONCOS to play in the playoffs ??????? I would love for the two teams to square off ! 

its simple the colts have to win and the bengals have to lose. that would put us on a first class trip to denver for a meeting against manning and the broncos. if the bengals win and the colts win then its a first class trip to new england to play brady and the patriots.

This set of playoffs is as wide open as I can ever remember.

 

I dunno, both Denver and New England are formidable teams right now.

 

I would prefer my Ravens go to New England, simply because I want revenge for last year - but I'm not really sure that the Pats are any easier to beat than the Broncos.

 

Another factor, I suppose, is that Peyton put a beatdown on us 3 weeks ago in our house.  I don't think we'd have much of a chance against that team at Mile High :(

 

 

EDIT: Just reread your post.  Are you talking about the games this weekend, or the playoff picture as a whole?

I meant the whole picture. There are teams on a roll, but everyone has lost a game they shouldn't have, and had impressive victories. Any.....given....Sunday. (or Saturday since it's the playoffs)

I agree, wide open. I took Hawks, Colts, Pack and Tex this week in my pool. I could go 0-4 quite easily.

fast track to Denver.. Colts win and texans win.. next weekend in Denver.

Colts win and Bengals win .. we go to foxboro next weekend.. Colts win there and should go to Denver for AFC championship; HOWEVER... If Colts win and the Bengals win then AFC championship game will be in Indy and No Manning this year.

Go Colts...

I live in Colorado and my Broncos fans ( keep thanking me for Manning, but many have said they are more scared of the Colts than anyone else... they keep feeling the mojo, enigma.. is too much like the Saints in 09...

just thankful to be where we are ...

If we were to advance and play in the next round? I would rather the Colts lose to Manning / Broncos, than to lose to Brady / Patriots !

    • They just want to pass the hot potato to us so we go the playoffs and face New England instead since they got Foxboro'ed out this year already. Sigh.   Just kidding.   Honestly this is terrible news. Love watching this guy play but he has not looked "all there" this year so far either. I still won't count Houston out though since they still might play very hard this year and it could still be a strong divisional battle.   It's important that they let him fully heal though for his future too.     Some say he should not have played.......but star players play banged up a lot. I am sure Luck was out there banged up last year a few times early in the year too. I think Houston probably trusted the trainers/doctors and how JJ himself said he felt and he felt okay to go perhaps. Before the NE game, I heard Watt was increasing his activity levels anyway in practice. Stuff, happens.......   Sucks so many stars are already hurt this year, but hey the Vikings have made do without a few and sometimes others step up in place.
    • I just don't think Luck trusts all his WR's yet.  I said this a couple of weeks ago to my buddy that he is waiting for the WR to come out of his break before throwing, which takes longer and leads to more problems.  I think he has decent chemistry with T.Y. but it's nowhere near the level that Manning had with Harrison and Wayne yet.  Takes time to build.  I also think in some of the situations where Luck makes the "boneheaded INT" throw he is trying to anticipate the pattern and it goes awry, which leads him to want to wait for the WR to break going forward.  I think it just may take a LOT more practice time and some years with these guys to gain that trust to know when they will break so he can release it sooner and not have something bad happen.   This is year 5 for Luck and T.Y. but not for everyone else.
    • Lol.. He said "circus", but I can definitely see where you could hear the other thing. 
    • I think we could win 5 by the mid-break.  BUT until we do he aint right and he aint wrong.  Just unproven.  He's still a fargin icehole though.
    • Ill try to answer your questions the best I can based on what I see and my opinion. Keep in mind its in my opinion though so take it for what it is worth.   He trusts both his arm and his legs . It has nothing to do with his physical ability that he doesn't trust. Its all mental ability to have a clock in his head the second he hits his drop back spot 3-5-7 steps. I believe he should be able to scan through his first 2 reads in under 2.5 seconds. By the time you get to that 3rd read I think your pretty well going to be under pressure unless you have an elite O Line pass blocking wise or you have your QB out on the move   I think Chud can help him out more by giving him some throws that are easy for him to make early on the games. Particularly short throws to get him settled in. Sometimes guys are not getting separation though and I don't really think Lucks strength is to throw guys open right now much. I think he is still working on learning to throw guys open which really involves throwing the ball to an area and trusting the receiver will be there. Instead I think he waits for the receiver to run his route and if the receiver is not open at the break point then he hesitates instead of throwing it to an area and having the WR go get it.   Also from the looks of it he doesn't get hardly any plays called that allow for him to throw on the run. No QB Roll Outs really at all. He needs more help from Chud
