Two Wild Cards Down

27 posts in this topic

In typical fashion. (Assuming GB keeps the medal to the pedal.)

 

 

Any wonder why the pro teams showed up to day. Defense.

 

 

 

 

Looks like Ravens to Denver and Houston to NE.

 

hmmm..can the Ravens knock out Denver.

 

;)

If there was ever a time for the NFL to fix games, this postseason would be it. Colts v. Broncos then Broncos v. Pats. Ratings would be through the roof. Goodell will be bathing in $100 bills.

That would probably be the prize:)

I guess I misunderstood who you were referring to.  I want the Colts to win tomorrow and have the dream scenario next week in Denver

Oh yeah then yes. A game between the Broncos and Colts would be the sprinkles on top of a very interesting and unexpected season.

But, what would Goodell do if Brady and Manning both blow the divisional snowy? :woah: Time is ticking for both QBs as they will be 37 and 36 next year.

 

There are only so many flags to save them as they run for their lives!!! ;)

 

 

 

GO COLTS!!!!! :banana:

Sorry,I thought I woke you up :)

 

This of course is all based on HF&defense. Then there's always the upset.

Well we got it handed to us by a veteran hungry team today that's for sure. Ouch.

 

But, moving on......we have a lot to look forward to in Indy.

Man, three bad games in a row. Hopefully this 'Skins/Seahawks game will be more entertaining.

I thought the colts gave them a run for their money early on but like I has said before the majority of the times the team that is more veteran and has a good defense wins in the playoffs. Plus HFA helps.

3 wild cards down, how many years have we had all home teams win in the wild card round recently?

We tried.......sigh. I am done with patterns and predictions though for the rest of the season. Whatever happens happens.

 

I think we held in there today as long as we could but man oh man this Ray Lewis thing IMO did spark them up too.

 

I am proud of the Colts this season. Not looking like a year again for AFC WC teams but maybe we can win the division next season! :)

 

All right, I am likely not done with SOME predictions.

Shanahanigans has struck again. By the time that man is done with him RGIII will be RGIV because he will be broken in half, or worse.

The Redskins need to get Griffin out of there. He's more of a hinderance at this point.

Shanahan should be fired immediately for having RG3 out there when it was clear he was in trouble.

Shanahan should be slowly roasted on a spit for his stupidity. The choice to not make the change earlier may have cost his team.

    • I have to agree with this sentiment.    I was worried they/he rushed back from injury too soon. I hope it's not career ending. Even though he was a division rival, I've always liked how he carried himself on and off the field. I wish him the best.
    • But he didn't, despite the narrative.    Grigson drafted 4 receivers in 4 years: Hilton (3rd), Brazill (6th), Moncrief (3rd), Dorsett (1st).    In the same time period, he drafted 6 OL: Anderson (7th), Thornton (3rd), Holmes (4th), Mewhort (2nd), John (7th), Good (7th).   Then this year, he drafted 4 more OL, including Kelly in the 1st. In five years, that's 4 receivers, 10 OL. Even "early" picks -- which to me is first and second rounders -- is 2 OL, 1 WR. Add in the third round, and it's still 3 OL and 3 WRs.   Grigson largely failed to fix the OL for four years, no question. But it's not because he didn't try, and it's definitely not because he spent too many picks on receivers. 
    • I worry about many things, but Dorsett isn't one of them.
    • Wouldn't a PS player have to remain on the team for 3 weeks? So when Jones came back next week someone else would have to be cut
    • In theory, yes, the Colts at their best could probably beat any team in the league. The offense would have to avoid mistakes, the defense would have to tackle well, and they'd probably still need some help from the other team in the form of missed opportunities (Rivers missed 3-4 TD throws on Sunday). They could get hot, stay healthy, and knock some teams off. It would be awesome if they were humming in December and January and made it to the Super Bowl, but don't hold your breath.    In practice, this year's Colts are a second tier team, at best. The OL is a work in progress (positive things are on the way, I believe, but the protection is still leaky and the run blocking is even further off), the QB and receivers aren't consistently on the same page. The defense can't cover the middle and can't consistently rush the passer. The coaching staff hasn't proven that they have the ability scheme and strategically minimize these weaknesses AND maximize the obvious strengths. In fact, in the biggest test of this ability -- late in the Denver game -- the coaching staff blew it.   If the Colts were able to play to their full potential every single week, and stay healthy, and if the coaching staff pushed the right buttons every game and in every situation, you might have a 13-3 team with a first round bye. But even then, you're probably looking at the 2010/2012 Falcons; that team even won a playoff game, but wasn't a great team, and quickly regressed (4-12 in 2013, a year after going to the NFCCG). This team appears more likely to play below expectations than to exceed expectations, sadly. Just not enough playmakers, especially on defense.   The hope is that the last two draft classes keep going in the right direction, and you get another two draft classes that pan out. Doesn't mean the Colts aren't trying to contend in the meantime, but it's going to be a couple years before the Colts will be considered one of the top teams in the league. And that's assuming things go well and the staff does the right things over the next two offseasons, which isn't a given.
