Colts schedule down the stretch isn't overly scary either:  Texans, Vikings, Jags, Raiders, and Jets.  Other than the Raiders none of those teams are playing great football right now.

Houston has to play the Packers and the Bengals...and of course us. I say we have a good shot!

Yes, no chance to win . Try the unknown. 

So, with that logic if Morris doesn't do well by the end of the 3rd qtr we should, what...try Patty Mac?  Then on to who...?  We're running out of unknowns - of which Tolzy is one of them.

But then, we lose when we're expected to win, our team has been wildly inconsistent.

Really Tolzy is an unknown?

this team is so frustrating to watch, defense is inept, and it shows how much Lucks' skill covers up

5-6.  I know it seems bad, but losses are a good thing for us.  If we can somehow go 1-4 over the rest of the season, that could be the end of the Pagano and Grigson era.

I hope it is just the end of grigson, I seem like the only one who thinks Pagano is ok. I think, with more talent on the defense and offense, we could see him be a good coach.

I think the team needs a jolt, a different voice to listen to and a different management that'd address the team's issues not in year 4 and 5 but earlier even when winning was happening.

I must have missed something.  Please enlighten me as to what you know.

and we could also be 6-10 and have the whole coaching staff back next year.

I'll take the wins when we can get them.  Jim is going to do what he's going to do.  I just want to enjoy some wins whenever we get them.

I really believe that if the Colts don't go out and beat Denver in 2014, Jimmy Harbaugh would be our coach!

Pagano and Grigson should have both been canned after last season. That little mistake is going to cost us a couple more years at least of spinning their wheels around .500. Pagano is supposed to be a defensive guy, and his in game is awful. Grigson makes this team less talented with every waste of a draft pick.

Why you would want your team to lose so someone gets fired?

 

anybody who would write that needs to look in a mirror

Jugs machine better get put to heavy use the next 10 days, and might want to work one those plays from the 1 yard line for Petes sake.

 

I am really sick of EVERYONE being injured on this team, what gives????

 

Venting here I ride or die with this team but gosh this is just bad.

I think the Colts win if Luck is playing. They'd won 2 and the Steelers had lost 4 not counting Cleveland. 

 

The Colts need the Bengals to beat the Texans now. They need anybody to beat the Texans lol but obviously the Bengals if nobody else.

Despite the Steelers beating us by 21 points I still don't see that team doing anything in the postseason the way we played tonight that should have been 48 to 7.

    • Encouraged by the weight loss to Goode, Banner, and Stewart.   Surprised by the gain to Morrison and Walker...though both are only 22 and 21 respectively and have yet to enter their primes so it could just be them filling out.    
    • To channel my inner Herm...   "You play to win the game!"
    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.
