Yea i agree with EVERYTHING. others need to just let the negative talk go in one ear and out the other. Because most who talk like that don't look at the whole picture.

Got a boatload of cap space and another draft to get better.On top of that these rookies will only get better in there 2nd year.

Tough finish but it was just.....Losing to baltimore in baltimore....isnt bad at all

....11-6 ....far more than I thought....

5 rookie starters and 7 rookies playing regular on offense....that's a recor dfor a playoff team.

Now, if they hold it together and stock up on the lines......

...I think even with a tougher schedule, we can go 10-6

I'd love more than anything to still be in it, but I can't be bitter. This upcoming off-season is going to be fun to follow.

What a run with so many rookies. 

 

But we need to get a better o-line and a second WR. I know we have some good rookies, but we need to get another very good WR who can catch the ball in the offseason.

 

But this season was remarkable and no one would have ever in their wildest dreams have thought we would win 11 games.

 

Go colts in 2013

very proud of how hard the team fought even though we were without arians. if we can get a #2 cb opposite davis,a guard, and a ss we should be able to win the division next year. offensively i think will be fine with wayne,hilton,brazil at wr because fleener and allen roles will increase similar to gronk and hernandez.

I certainly prefer being the worst 11-5 team in history to being the best 2-14 team in history.

We're on the way up. Two teams in our division are in disarray, neither has a franchise QB IMO.

The Texans just don't look like a great team, their QB is a little better than average and their #1 WR is getting old.

Good words Andy, the best is yet to come.

Has the schedule been released yet? I'm curious who they play seeing it's not a division winning schedule, they should have a good chance to sneak up on the Texans yet again next year.

Home - Dolphins, Seahawks, Rams, Raiders, Broncos

 

Away - 49ers, Cardinals, Chargers, Chiefs, Bengals

 

6 in the division

 

I can definitely see us going 11-5 again but winning the division this time.

That's what I was thinking. Hardest games are at home, besides the 49ers.

I think we're picking 24th.  Redskins, Bengals, and Vikings all had worse records.

Look at what they did this year. 

 

Last year at this time, they had fired their coach, their GM, and we're about to get rid of their longtime QB.

 

Now, with a new team, a new staff, and new hope, they went to the playoffs. 

 

I don't care how they performed, I don't care anymore about that Avery drop, or that interception. It doesn't matter now. So, stop looking back on this game, and look at what the Colts did this year.

 

I've watched the Colts for most of my life, and this is arguably the best one. Who would have thought the Colts would be in the playoffs. Many thought that the first overall pick was the Colts, and now they're picking 23rd (I think). What a season! 

 

Their head coach got leukemia, and the backup takes them to the playoffs. The rookie quarterback, who many thought would be great in the future, had a fantastic year and carried the team on his back. Reggie Wayne's career was rejuvenated. They discovered great talents in guys like TY Hilton, Vick Ballard, Dwayne Allen, Donnie Avery and Darius Butler, to name a few. This is a great team, start believing it.

 

Seasons like this don't happen often, or even at all. So, I recommend you guys look back and enjoy this miraculous season. What a year! I don't care what the score is, the Colts are winners in my books. This season is a success, a huge one!

 

This will be a great team for long time!

I second that, I'm very proud of this team and what they accomplished. They should be a force for a long time.    "GO COLTS"

Very happy for how this team performed and can't complain. Yeah it stinks losing in the first round of the playoffs, but this is just the beginning and a great place to start. This team went from worst in the league to making the playoffs in one year, there are many teams that go years without making the playoffs and finish in the bottom five for several years in a row. Irsay clearly made the right decisions and has the right people in charge. All I ask in the off-season is build the o-line and continue to move this team in the right direction. There were so many great additions to this team and most importantly they are focused on improving on all sides of the ball.

    • Possibly. But there is more ways to make it work. Like say swapping a 4th for their 5th too or some other combo if we get their 101 then we get say that 5th or something. That said I want that 82nd and not impressed with the 101st..even if it meant swapping our late 4th for their 5th. That 82nd to me is like the tipping point in the draft. Kinda where that level of talent sees a big drop or players start having limitations or big question marks. Not saying there won't be diamonds in the rough later but percentages aren't on our side.
    •   I hate to be the killjoy and I certainly have NO inside information....   But my hunch,  my instincts,  say that Elway will not trade the 82nd pick that's worth 180 points even thought it's a natural fit.     I'm on record as saying it's a buyers market, not a seller's market,  so I think we're going to have to settle for Denver's 2nd of their two 3rd round picks.     It's pick 101 and it's with 96 points,  less than half of what we'd want.   And for that reason,   I think the haggling is over what else we will demand Denver give us to make up for some of that huge difference.      I don't think i'd want to do a deal just for that 2nd three and take less than 50 cents on the dollar.      I'd tell Elway,   no 2nd pick,  no deal.     And while I don't think Elway will give up a 4,  I think he might be willing to give up a 5 to go with it.      Clearly he'd be more willing to give up a 6,  the question is,  would that be enough for Ballard.      My instincts say no,  but what the Hell do I know,   I'm guessing here....   But my instincts say we'd get the 2nd of the Broncos three's and another pick....     That might get the job done...   I know this viewpoint will be very, very unpopular,  but I think this is a weird draft and that the majority of deals will be discounted.  
    • I see the Patriots getting this guy in the middle round. They love Florida players and seem to always grab guys that tumble but have special talent and turn them into another cog in that machine.
    • That's a reach if I've ever saw one. Honestly he is like the 5th best OL at best and it's likely we would be able to draft the best if we wanted one drafting where we are. Sometimes these guys just force stupid picks on small market teams so they can have some bigger names fall to their big market teams like the Cowboys and Steelers etc because they know they will make more readers happy to see a guy like say Conley fall to the Cowboys or a Reddick fall to the Steelers or say a Charles Harris fall to Atlanta. So what if he screws over the Colts or say the Titans or Cincinnati if it means pushing a clear better talent and fit down the draft board to make a dream scenario for the Jets, Eagles, or Cowboys. That's how I tell the good analysts from the make believe ones as I look for clear outliers.
