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 agree, Pagano says a lot of vanilla statements -- but in this case he is saying "well documented", which is true -- our running D, with Art in the lineup was allowing significantly less YPC.  This is when he is actually on the field, not sitting on the bench.  Here are the stats  -- http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/13395/the-statistics-show-that-the-colts-need-art-jones-on-the-field-to-stop-the-run :   WITHOUT JONES ON THE FIELD 257 rushes for 1,201 yards (4.67 yards per rush) 3.12 yards before contact per rush 12 rushing TDs (4.7 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 26 percent of rushes WITH JONES ON THE FIELD 165 rushes for 615 yards (3.73 yards per rush) 2.15 yards before contact per rush 2 rushing TDs (1.2 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 22 percent of rushes   ------------------------------------------------------------------ These numbers are pretty staggering, at least in my opinion (all of them -- the contact before rush sticks out the most to me, but the YPC, TD, and First Downs are all significant, too).   All that said, Jones has not been sidelined more than he's been on the field.  This PED suspension doesn't help the team and as you've said earlier, we won't miss him that much.  I don't agree with you that we won't miss him due to him not being a significant contributor when he is on the field (that he has been) -- but, he hasn't been healthy enough to be on the field long enough to really warrant missing him.... violating the league substance abuse policy doesn't help this team and doesn't help Jones.  If I'm the coach/GM, Jones is on a very short leash (or perhaps already dismissed) for this.
    • And so another rumor is laid to rest. Good riddance.
    • Do it for Pagel          
    • When is the draft going to be?
    • It was similar to what Jones ran at Baltimore but not the same.  That is why I was I didn't think his poor play was earth shattering.   Yup, I ran the numbers of the games he played and the games he didn't play.  In the games he played the Colts allowed a lower YPC average than the games he didn't play.  The odd thing as I was running the numbers though, is with Jone in the game the opposing team used the running game a lot more.  With Jones teams ran the ball an average of 28.667 times per game, without Jones they ran the ball 20.33 times per game.  Without Jones the COlts D gave a lot more long running plays, with Jones, they gave up a lot more first downs via the ground.    So, I will admit I was wrong about the higher YPC with Jones.  But I still would not quanitify what Jones did as a significant contribution to the run defense, mainly because teams were able to grind out the running game and keep the chains moving and keep the Colts O off the field.   Lastly, quoting Pagano doesn't really mean a lot.
