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

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.

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.

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.

The Rams have played well all year. They held Seattle close and beat the texans quite handily.

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

It will certainly be a match-up to watch. Quinn & Long vs Castonzo & Cherlius.

 

I expect a close game in the first half, and we pull away in the 2nd half.

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

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

They don't have JJ Watt though. Our O-line has been okay (bend but not break) in other games.

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...

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.

Ten points is a lot for any team not named the Jags. The Rams do have a great pass rush but their limited offensively. I think will win 27- 13.

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 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.

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Nice post.   The reason to play Clark inside as a rookie is that he's not ready to play OT on the NFL level.    Whatever he learned in college doesn't translate well to the NFL game.      That's why he fell to 82.     He needs coaching.   Lots and lots and lots of very good coaching.     Hoping Philbin is that guy.   At guard,  he's got help on both sides.    His flaws will be somewhat covered.    But at tackle, he's out on an island -- no man's land -- and he'd likely get eaten alive as a rookie.       If he plays a lot as a rookie and plays well,  I'll be the most surprised person here.     Now, I also be happy too. I'm always happy to be wrong when it means the Colts are helped.      But everything I've read says he's not going to be ready........      we'll soon find out.....  
    • Extremly early prediction...
      Like it!  Hopefully things will bounce our way this season. This could be the "core" of the Colts to come. Here's to quelling this peasant uprising in the South! (I really do believe the Afc South as a "whole" got better. Some teams more than others). Go Colts
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      I think Clark was a solid pick. I saw him on Big Boards as high as 31 and as low as 106. Most boards I saw had him as a solid 2nd rounder. If you built an OT in a lab chances are you'd get a guy with Clark's measurables: Height: 6-foot-5 Weight: 315 pounds Arm Length: 36 1/8" Hand Size: 11 7/8" 40 Time: 5.16 seconds Vertical Jump: 30" (pro day) Broad Jump: 9'1" (pro day) Bench Press: 18 reps Obviously you'd want the bench reps closer to 28 than 18. The weight room should get him there. Those ridiculously long arms and big ol paws can't be developed.  He's an OT that is where he'd be for me from day 1. I don't see any reason to play him at G as some suggested.  Everything I have read says he has a high football IQ. I think he is ready to compete to start next season. Preseason will give us an idea of where he is out. I think his ceiling is a top LT.  If I played OL for the Colts I would    not feel like my starting spot was secure. That goes for guys like Mewhort and Castonzo too. While not likely the OL this time next year could be totally revamped.  Clark, Good, Kelly, Blythe, Haeg. It should be a positive for OL having guys that feel they have to give it evetthing each Sunday to keep their job. 
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      If you want to argue that there was a player who was more "pro ready" for 2016 than Clark,   I absolutely would not disagree with you.   In fact,  that's what I argued the night we took him and then the next night and the whole weekend.   And I * off a lot of Colts fans by saying Clark was likely not going to help us much this year,  but would hopefully help us in 2017.    They did NOT want to read that.   So, on that limited argument,  we agree.   But on most everything else,  we disagree.     I don't know why you posted the profiles from NFL.com    Not sure how they helped you?    Clark's profile has a higher grade and projects him in the 1st or 2nd round.    Westerman's has a lower grade and a 2nd or 3rd round projection.   If Christian Westerman ever plays a day of offensive tackle in the NFL,  then the Bengals are playing under emergency conditions.      I'm not aware that he ever played a day of tackle in his life.   By the way,  the Bengals top two draft picks in 2015 were tackles.   Ogbuehi from Texas A&M and Fisher from Oregon went 1-2.    Those are their tackles of the future.     They have other tackles like Wentworth and others.   Westerman will play guard or center.      Remember,  he's 6-3 and 300.     Can you think of a single other OT in the NFL that was 6-3 and 300?      I don't think there's been one of those in quite some time.    He's an interior lineman all the way.      Remember,  one of my favorites from this draft.     But we took Haeg over him,  so if we liked him at all,   it was limited.     Clark went two full rounds ahead of him.   Clark's ceiling, his upside is simply ridiculous.    The question becomes,  can we coach him up enough to get him there.     For everyone's sake,   let's hope so.

      Get technical. Anyone could be the back up punter. That don't mean anyone can kick it any distance. PM practices FGs right along side AV in camp and practices but I have never seen AV practice kicking punts with PM. If all you want to do is argue find someone else.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
