St. Louis (+10) @ Indianapolis (11-10-13)

I honestly don't think that's enough.

The Rams can run the ball and rush the passer but they won score much..with a 'temp' QB

I think the Colts cover this easily and I expect the spread to go up..

Actually expect the spread to go down they met not score a lot with a backup QB but they still owned a lot of Oline with their two pass rushers and fishers D is always good. This game is gonna be closer then people think a lot closer actually. And don't forget last night a new QB tore us up so anything can happen with this years colts

We will win easily. This is the perfect opponent for us at home to get our legs under us. It's a lot like the Buffalo game we won 20-13 last year after Thanksgiving.

 

This is also on my birthday. We will win, guaranteed.

You do realize these are the same Rams that cruised past the Texans and nearly knockes off Seattle, right? They will come at this swinging. The Rams want to play the tough grind it out style the Colts do.

STL's last couple games have exceeded my expectations for them.

 

Do I expect us to win?  Yes.

 

Do I expect us to cover?  Yes.

 

Do I think there will be an uncomfortable moment or two where I question the above?  Yes.

I actually think we score 2 out of our first 3 possessions and win handedly 34-17. That being said, I would pass on betting on this game.

Having watched their past two games, one thing I did notice about the Rams.

They have a very good pass rush.

VERY good. I think we can abuse their defensive schemes more-so than we did against Houston.

Each game is independent of it's own. We are good at Lucas Oil, and we will win the game. I watched that game closely against Tennessee. Locker was not sharp. I had money on the Titans so I was into every play. Rams have an underrated run game but I wouldn't expect Clemens to string together another decent performance. We will be fine

You will be declaring a colts loss if the rams score a field goal on their opening drive

I'm more worried about Long vs Cherilus. Long gave him a lot of problems when the rams played the lions last year.

Go back through the game day thread. You were in panic mode after the first td. I never once thought we didn't have a chance at coming back

They were in their last two games until the very end. Against two very good teams. I agree with you, some people are going to be surprised. But if they were paying attention, they wouldn't be.

Except for Jacksonville, we've played up or down to our competition. Except for them, have we covered the spot when favored?

Wasnt aware of this. I dont usually pay much attention to NFC North teams, so Im not overly familiar with what Cherilus did last year for Detroit.

Our oline is going to be abused and by extension Luck is going to be abused. I still anticipate that we win and I expect us to cover, but Luck is going to get beat up...

The reason for their pass rush is their DEs, and our OTs are pretty good..

Brockers and Langford get a decent rush inside too. They may play Williams Hayes inside on passing downs as I saw he has 5 sacks.

Where are all you "trap game " posters ? This , unlike others you were calling trap games is a perfect example of one.

 

Home team, playing an lessor team , big favorite..

 

Coming off a big win and is followed by a division game that would pretty much clinch the division. 

 

Plus , to top it off SL has some very good talent and shows up big some weeks.

Jeff Fisher will have something up his sleeve, remember the game they onside kicked it like three times in a row?  He'll have something we aren't expecting.  The Rams can run the ball and have a decent defense if they can get going they can give us fits and the Colts haven't started quick much this season.  I think the Colts win but it might not be the cake walk that most are expecting.

The Rams don't have the offense to attack us quickly..and while Stacy has been effective..

...I thought the Houston game was where we were vulnerable...

This is one we should win decisively...15-20 points..the Colts scure 30 or more here

Kellen Clemons is far from new to the NFL. Other than that this is spot on. The Rams are a good defense and a game managing offense. Its going to be a slugfest.

Kellen isn't the new QB he was referring to.  He was referring to Case Keenum, who was the new QB we almost lost to.

Sunday we did.  If I recall, the spread was like 2 points.

    • I really like your commitment to fixing the o-line. If we land Sitton, Norwell and Williams to put in with Kelly and AC, I would evaluate we have more than enough talent to protect Luck. Also like the assortment of offensive weapons you have added.   I get the feeling Williams wont drop to the second, there are few teams towards the end of the draft that could do with oline help. NE and Philly may not have their starting LT's for next year as an example.
    • (First of all, I'm using @Superman 's format, so thanks to him for it)    Team Cap Space: $74,194,402 (after Vinatieri Signing)   Own free agents:  Adam Vinatieri - already signed Rashaan Melvin - 3 years 24M (12 guaranteed) (9M first year this is what Ballard usually does - gets flexibility on the backend of the deal by giving up more guaranteed money at the front end) Jack Mewhort - 1 year 2M Jon Bostic - 1 year 1.5M Pierre Desir - 3 years 4M (2.5M guaranteed, 1.5M hit in the first year) - I'm taking a bit of a calculated risk here. He could be a good piece for our DB core and i'm tying him up by giving him some guaranteed money Barkevious Mingo 1 year, 2M Mike Person - 1 year 800K, he played well when he got a chance for us  Luke Rhodes 1 year 600K Erik Swoope 1 year 600K Chris Milton 1 year 600K Jeremy Vujnovich, 1 year 600K ------------------------------------------------- Total spent: 19.2M (for 2018), Cap Space Left: 55,194,402   Other Teams' Free agents: Andrew Norwell, OG - 5 years, 66M(44M guaranteed, 14M hit first year) all pro guard, I've decided enough is enough. when Luck comes back he will be protected Josh Sitton, OG - 3 years, 22M (12M guaranteed, 7M hit first year) pro bowl guard - see above, I'm fixing the guards position in FA.  Anthony Hitchens, ILB - 4 years, 26M (13M guaranteed, 6M hit first year) - Eberflus gets his Mike to help him in transitioning this defense into 43...  Tyler Eifert, TE - 1 year prove it deal 5M - he's a quality TE and would probably get more(both number and years) were it not for his injuries.in the last 2 seasons Paul Richardson, WR - 3 years, 20M (10M guaranteed, 6M hit in 2018) Corey Nelson, ILB  2 years 2M(1M guaranteed, 1M hit) - depth ILB piece.  (other depth signings at around minimum salary): 7M (I'm not good evaluating the more marginal talent so I would assume there are some OLine depth signing, some pass-rush depth signing, some safety depth signing, etc.) ------------------------------------------------- Total spent: 46M (for 2018), Cap Space Left: 9,194,402     Trades(before June): John Simon to KC Chiefs for their 4th round pick - IMO Simon is one of the players that's most likely to not fit in our new scheme. I'm projecting a trade here ------------------------------------------------- Savings - 3,281,250 Updated Caps Space left: 12,475.652       Draft: Trade: Jets call and offer their first round pick, second round pick and a fourth round pick for our no.3. Colts accept   1/6(from Jets) Bradley Chubb, EDGE, NC State, 4QBs and Barkley are gone.  start building some pressure on the defense 2/36 Leighton Vander Esch, ILB, Boise state, athletic do-it-all linebacker with speed 2/37(from Jets) Connor Williams, OT, Texas - hopefully teams are indeed not superhigh on him and he slips to the second round. Draft him and put him at RT to begin and then transition him to LT if we have a money crunch on our hands when AC's contract expires 3/67 Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia - a big physical RB, with good vision, who gets yards after contact. Great complement to Marlon Mack and ***** 4/103 Nathan Shepherd, DL, Fort Hays State - big interior disruptor. He's a 'potential' pick, but he killed the senior bowl and was unblockable in 1-on-1 drills vs some very good interior O-linemen  4/104(from Jets) Fred Warner, ILB, BYU - quick sideline to sideline ILB with some coverage skills. Needs to add some weight probably and work on getting rid of blockers 4/122(from Chiefs) Dante Pettis, WR, Washington - I have no idea why he's not ranked higher on draft boards, he has consistently been available around here in simulated mock drafts I've done, I love his speed and the way he attacks the ball in the air. He also has some value in the return game. Has 9 punts returned for TD in his Washington career 5/140 Dominick Sanders, S, Georgia - a well rounded safety good in coverage. Had good year and showed more consistency than in previous years.   6/178 Kylie Fitts, EDGE, Utah - often injured, Fitts didn't have the production his early career suggested(7 sacks junior season). He is a quick and slippery pass-rusher. This is a traits pick with the hope that with health he will develop into a rotational pass-rusher 7/221 Michael Joseph, CB, Dubuque - intriguing small school prospect who held his own at the Senior Bowl. Good developmental prospect.  -------------------------------------------------------------------- 12M spent on draft picks. Cap Space Left: ~0.5M   Depth Chart(bolded are the draft picks, underlined are the FA acquisitions)   I tried addressing the full roster with heavy emphasis on O-line help. I feel like i would feel very comfortable putting Luck behind this O-line. The DB core is very thin but I just couldn't do everything this off-season. LB core needs more work too.    Thoughts?   
    • Very nice win coming out of the break. We are now tied for the 4th Spot with the Wizards at 34-25. I see no way we miss the playoffs looking at the Heat who are 30-29 and in 8th, Pistons are 9th at 28-30. I mean we would really have to go into a funk to miss the Playoffs now. I could see us finishing 7th though because of our schedule. 7th would get us either the Celtics or Raptors in Round 1.
    •   Statistically, the success of play action isn't very closely related to the strength of a team's rushing offense.   Take the 2016 Vikings. Adrian Peterson missed most of the season, McKinnon (3rd rounder) and Matt Asiata (UDFA) split carries. They averaged about 3.2 yards/carry. They used play action on 19% of their pass plays, and they averaged 3.2 yards more per pass play when using play action, which was the biggest differential in the league.   The 2016 Steelers only averaged 1.4 yards more per play action pass, and they have one of the best RBs in the league. The 2016 Cowboys only averaged 1.8 yards more per play action pass.   http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2017/2016-play-action-offense
