Like the poll states, how many SB titles do you think the Colts will win in the next 5 seasons. and state why you chose your number.

 

I voted 2. I think with the talent we have, we are not that far off. We win 2 SB titles in the next 5 seasons.

I said 1 in probably year 4 or 5.  Will probably take that long to build a strong contending team and Brady and Manning will be on the way out.

Im being very optimistic when I say 1. Super Bowls are extremely hard to get to and even harder to win.

Still have to much building to do.  I would love to see 1, but to many things need to get done before that happens.

Well, once Manning and Brady retire we'll probably have a lot of playoff success. I'll say we win one in year 4 and another in year 8-10 though it's hard to guess so far into the future.

I don't think were as far away as you may think. I honestly believe with a solid O-line and a couple of upgrades on defense, this team can compete with any team in the league and could easily compete for a Super Bowl as early as next season if these weak area's are able to be upgraded this offseason. With that said, its hard to tell right now if we can get those upgrades this offseason or if it will take another offseason to get the upgrades. Either way, I think this team is 2 yrs.(tops) away from competing yr. in and yr. out for a Super Bowl.

Wow talk about presumptuous. We have a shot to win one in about I'd say 3-4 years and that is more than a lot of teams can say.

I think we are farther then most of us will admit.  I know that alot of people on the Forum believe we have a good Receiving corps, but when it all comes out, our Receiving corps is lacking.  After Reggie, we have nothing but Slot receivers.  If Reggie goes down, we are in trouble.  We had no Red Zone Offense.

 

We need to sort through our D-line and get them healthy.  Can't wait to see Chapman play and who is going to be on each side, but they need to take it to the next level.

 

Our LB corps needs to get sorted out and we need Freeney's replacement.

 

The only reliable DB we have is Bethea.  If Davis is going to be worth that 2nd round we gave up, then he needs to stay on the field, lower his penalties , and step-up his play.  The rest of the CBs and Safeties need to be replaced, which will hurt us for a few years.

 

Our O-line needs lots of help.  AC played good, but needs to step-up his game.  Liked what I saw out of Shipley, but we need to replace the rest.  I have read on the Forum that Justice Should be kept and to start.  I agree when he first came out he was goo and when he can play he is good but, he has been hurt for the last few years and that has affcted his play- so keep him as a back-up.

 

Ballard surprised me.  Knew he was good in College, but had a bad Senior Bowl and an Average Combine, so was not sold on him, but he played very well.  Brown is good when in, but when in is the main problem.  The rest were jusy there.

 

Allen played very well, but Fleener was everything I expected- good in College and unremarkable in the Pros.

 

Did not plan to go this long, but this is how I seen this season and the reasons we will not get to the SB at the earliest till year 5.

The WCO utilizes the TE's much more and will make up for the slot receivers we have. Fleener is more of a big WR than a TE with very good speed and athleticism. Our WR corps. are in better shape than many think.

 

We need to sort through our D-line and get them healthy.  Can't wait to see Chapman play and who is going to be on each side, but they need to take it to the next level. We need to add another DE and we'll resign Moala IMO who is pretty good as a 3-4 DE, not great but good.

 

Our LB corps needs to get sorted out and we need Freeney's replacement. I agree, and will probably be addressed with a FA.

 

The only reliable DB we have is Bethea.  If Davis is going to be worth that 2nd round we gave up, then he needs to stay on the field, lower his penalties , and step-up his play.  The rest of the CBs and Safeties need to be replaced, which will hurt us for a few years. Davis really came on at the end of the season and if we add a guy like Cary Williams and draft another guy we'll be fine with our DB's.

 

Our O-line needs lots of help.  AC played good, but needs to step-up his game.  Liked what I saw out of Shipley, but we need to replace the rest.  I have read on the Forum that Justice Should be kept and to start.  I agree when he first came out he was goo and when he can play he is good but, he has been hurt for the last few years and that has affcted his play- so keep him as a back-up. Everybody knows that this is the biggest weakness and will be priority number 1 this offseason.

 

Ballard surprised me.  Knew he was good in College, but had a bad Senior Bowl and an Average Combine, so was not sold on him, but he played very well.  Brown is good when in, but when in is the main problem.  The rest were jusy there. With an improved O-line we'll see a much improved running game. RB's are a dime a dozen and an easy position to fill at any time.

 

Allen played very well, but Fleener was everything I expected- good in College and unremarkable in the Pros. Like I said earlier, Fleener will show significant improvement this yr. running an offense that will properly utilize him and he is familiar with.

 

Did not plan to go this long, but this is how I seen this season and the reasons we will not get to the SB at the earliest till year 5. It may take 5 yrs. but not because of a lack of talent. simply because it's very hard to get there in the first place.

Super Bowl winners have lots of quality players who have been in the league for awhile and have played together.

We will have a huge turnover the next few seasons with FA`s and draft picks as we acquire our kind of players.

That would make winning a SB by year 5 a MONUMENTAL task. We certainly have a shot at being in one and then....

To think last year at this time, we were wondering if we had a chance at 5 wins in 2012.

 

How only a year can change everything. :)

I'll go for one, in year 3. Reggies last game, and he goes out in a flurry of blue and white glitter......

 

And this 'down on Fleener' stuff is ridiculous. As rookie TE's go, the boy did fine. I can see him step up and become a real dual threat along side 'The DA'.

If we get our act together, maybe one. Zero if we continue fielding a bottom 5 pass blocking O-line year after year.

 

Overall player skill and coaching aside, it takes a great deal of fortune to win the SB no matter how good your team is. How  the ball bounces, how many horsecrap calls go for or against you, etc. 

 

Zebras are far more impactful on the outcome of games in modern football than they should be. Rules might be enforced one game, then the rulebook is turned on its head and largely ignored in another. Not to mention the amount of favoritism one team seems to often get over another.

I say zero for the fact they are extremely hard to achieve.

 

Two in Luck's career would be a HUGE achievement.

 

Plus we don't even know if our team will be good for the next five years. I always go with assume the worst and hope for the best.

Very true, they are really hard to achieve, but the Steelers did it (2), and so did the Giants (2), so who knows!

Winning one would be a huge success.

 

Anything more than that is pushing it. It is ridiculously hard, especially these days, to win 2 SBs in a few years.

Alright, I'm waiting to hear why some voted 0.

 

supremecoltsfan300, BigMcAfeeWithCheese, Holden89?

As the team is now, I don't think we're good enough.

Luck showed a ton of promise, and he'll probably turn into a top 8 qb during that 5 year span, but how good will the rest of the team be? We went through a decade with the best qb and won just one SB. It's hard to win the SB, and takes a whole team playing well during the postseason.  I don't think we have any shot the next two years (realistically), and so then reggie is gone at that point.  Mathis will probably be well past his prime too.  

 

I do think we have some good young players, but I don't know if any of them will be pro-bowl level.

If the question was for a 10 year span, then I would say yes, we probably will one.  But for the next 4 years I still see Peyton, Brady, Brees, and Rodgers all playing at an elite level.  It's going to be hard to win the SB the next five years.  I do think we'll be in at least one afc championship during that 5 year span.  And once you're there, anything can happen, so it's possible.

 

I just don't personally expect to win the SB in the next 5 years with the current talent level.

If we have the same talent level in five years, grigson will be out of work

No, actually it's very easy to predict.  But it's almost impossible to be accurate.  :)

If the FO does it's job, Luck progresses into a top-tier QB, and the team stays healthy, there is a solid chance we win one in year 4 or 5 of Luck's contract (so 2015 or 2016). Reason I say this is because we will have a top-tier QB for relative chump change, allowing us to keep a core of young talent that will grow with Luck mixed with veterans to supplement year 5 will be a boost in salary as is for Luck but up until then he is extremely low cost). Once we have to pay Luck his second contract, the cap will become much harder to manage, making it more difficult to keep top notch talent  outside of the QB position on the roster.  


 


The team must address turnover ratio or else 11-5 will quickly turn into 8-8 or worse.

    • Blockbuster trade ideas
      No disrespect intended but I sure will glad when Pre season starts.
    • ESPN shows a troublesome Colts drafting trend...
      Look at how long my post is.       Seriously, it's a really long post.   If I listed all the good things (and I have in countless other posts over the years)  then my post would read like War and Peace.      No one looks at a post that size and reads all of it.      It's a waste of everyone's time.   I've written what you written to me countless times over the years.    But I think things have changed.    So I'm more skeptical this year.      My hope lies with the new coaches we brought in to get the most out of our players.   I have publicly predicted we're going to win 10 games this season..    Though I did add that I would not be surprised if we only won 8.      But I'm not predicting 8 wins.       The only other negative thing I've added is that I don't see a deep run in the playoffs.        Make the playoffs --- yes.      Go far in the playoffs --- I don't see it.   And as I try to do when I make what could be viewed as a negative post,  I try to add that I hope I'm wrong.    I'd rather be wrong and the team does well than be right and the team do not as well.      I have my ego,  but it's not THAT out of control.      I'd like the team that I cheer for to do as well as it can.    Even if it means I'm wrong.  
    • Blockbuster trade ideas
      As we all know, the offseason can be really slow.  I figure a fun idea would be to try to come up with some blockbuster trades (I defined it as trades involving at least one starter) that would make sense for both sides involved (or, if you're daring, a 3-team trade).   1. New Orleans trade Drew Brees to Buffalo for Stephon Gilmore and a conditional 4th round pick in 2017 Why New Orleans would do it: It's no surprise that the Saints aren't a complete enough team to compete in the next couple of years.  Brees is currently 37 and likely only has 2 years left in him at best.  So New Orleans decides to go into retool (not rebuild) mode and get a young corner to help their porous defense, and a conditional 4th round pick to give them ammo to possibly move up in next year's draft to select a good QB of the future. While Buffalo would do it: Buffalo is a fairly complete team.  They have lots of weapons all over the place on offense and defense.  They are just a QB away from being Super Bowl contenders, in my opinion.  So they go into win-now mode and bring in Brees.  Some question the move because Brees has generally played in good conditions (San Diego, dome in New Orleans) and Buffalo isn't known for its temperate winters, but Brees can still play QB at a high level.  The Bills are also in contract talks with Stephon Gilmore, who is probably looking to get Josh Norman type of money in a contract extension.  Instead, the Bills decide to roll with Ronald Darby as their CB1 and hope the rest of their defense can pick up the slack to cover up the hole left by the leaving Gilmore.  Not only that, but with a consistent QB, they won't have as much pressure on their defense.   2. Chicago trades Jay Cutler to Cleveland for Duke Johnson and a conditional 3rd round pick in 2017 Why Chicago would do it: The Bears were essentially in fire-sale mode last year.  Around the trade deadline, there were reports that only a handful of players were off limits to trades and that everyone else was available.  The Bears won't be competing for the division title against the Packers and Vikings anytime soon, so they decide it's best to go into rebuild mode and try to build their team up again.  They get rid of Cutler, who has had a rocky tenure in Chicago.  In return, they get Duke Johnson and a conditional 3rd rounder.  John Fox likes to run the ball and Duke Johnson seems like he needs a change of scenery.  Not only that, but the current starting RB for the Bears is Jeremy Langford.  Plus, the Bears have a capable QB in Hoyer to get them through the season.  Alternatively, they try starting David Fales and go into full tank mode. Why Cleveland would do it: Cleveland is another of those teams that just needs a QB and they will have a decently complete roster.  They have a solid OL, and decent defense.  Cutler has shown he can play in bad weather (and he has a cannon for an arm), and he quietly had a not-too-bad season last year with over 3500 yards and just 11 picks.  Hue Jackson is a no-nonsense coach, so I think he will garner more respect from Cutler than people like Marc Trestman or Mike Tice.  Cleveland gets a 33 year old QB who can still play, and they put him behind a solid OL.  This trade could make the AFC North the most competitive division in football.   3. Washington trades Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson to Detroit for Stephen Tulloch and a 5th round pick Why Washington would do it: They drafted Josh Doctson 22nd overall, and it doesn't make sense to keep Jackson and Garcon when they combine for a nearly $20 mil cap hit.  With this trade, they get more defensive help Tulloch while not really hurting their pass catchers.  Doctson, Jackson/Garcon, and Reed is a solid group.  This move gets them some cap relief while bringing in some defensive help. Why Detroit would do it: With the unexpected retirement of Megatron, their top receivers are Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.  Neither one of those guys is a WR1, but I think both are good WR2s.  Detroit is also trying to trade Tulloch.  If they can't trade him, they'll have to cut him and get nothing in return.  Doing this gives them the chance to get rid of Tulloch and get something in return.  Not only that, but they partially fill the void left by Johnson's retirement.   These perhaps aren't all that realistic, but it's something fun to talk about.  The draft picks I included in my trade may be unrealistic, and I admit that I didn't put as much thought into that portion of this thread, but I figure they make at least a little bit of sense.  In the first two, I value QBs more than other positions.  So while Gilmore and Johnson are both young, they don't give you what a good QB can give you.  I made the Cutler trade a little higher of a draft pick just because the Browns would be able to keep Cutler (33 years old) for longer than the Bills would have Brees (37 years old).   What are some (realistic) trades you can come up with?
    • Brady to Appeal....
      The HOF has nothing to do with "sports hero". I know of two players that both have a year long suspension. Paul Horning and Alex Karras  were suspended for betting on NFL games. Even though they were teams suspensions the Colts suspended Eric Dickerson two times in two years. One time for 6 games and one time for 4 games for conduct detrimental to the team. Do you think Ben Roethlisberger wont be in the HOF because he is not considered a hero?

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
