Colts @ Vikings Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Titans are setting themselves up to be a good team the next few years. They have built a very very nice OL and have a nice running game going. QB is pretty stable with Marcus (not great but not too bad). The defense is taking steps to being decent. They are just a hardnosed team...I like that.....then add all the draft picks they have stacked up....if they draft well.....dang I think they could leap frog both us and Houston in a couple years. They won't go away anytime soon.

If the Colts made the right coaching change I believe they could get back on track! But, I do see the Titans as a better team than Houston right now!

Hey guys,

 

we lost playoff hopes earlier this season. Loosing to our division opponents is never a good sign...especially loosing twice to Jags. After loosing to Texans last week, our chances were really thin. 

 

I'm as disappointed as everyone here, but I won't cry over Texans and Tennesse not loosing today. As I said PO passed away earlier...

Yep. Funny thing is that you have a team that has been drafting top 10 picks forever in Jax and they never get any better....but Tennessee is showing the right way to turn things around and making the most of their players. With the haul of picks they got for trading back last year I think they will be ready to turn the corner.

    • Keep in mind too, the more wins from here on out, will only increase the odds keeping Pagano.         
    • I watch them a bit. I can certainly concede that Hill is the most talented of the three and may be better than I gave him credit for in my post...   Hunt is not that great, imo. He has had a very good season, especially for a rookie, but I think he has overachieved quite a bit. He doesn't have the elite power/speed combo of guys like Fournette or Zeke. I think he's an average (or slightly above) running back in a very good situation. I don't think he would be rated so highly if he ran for Cleveland or Indy.   Just my opinion, though. I'm not married to it, either... I'm sure I've made many foolish statements about young players in the past.    I was just trying to illustrate that the OC in KC (is his name Nagy?) is part of an offense that is playing better than the sum of its parts. How much of that can be attributed to him and how much is Andy Reid is a fair question, though. New HC candidates are always a gamble, though. 
    • Whichever NFC team that has the best interior pass rush will have the best chance to beat the Pats.  It's their Achilles heel.  
    •   I am NOT a fan of tanking.   I argued on behalf of trying to win the last two games of both the 15 and 16 seasons.    The argument was we had a chance to go 8-8 so you absolutely try to win those games.     5 straight seasons without a losing season is a good achievement for any franchise.   But now that we are overwhelmingly likely to finish below 500,  then I feel free to say that while I don't want us to tank,  I will not be upset with any loss.     Even if we lose them all.      I know this is a nuanced position,   but I won't be upset with any losses in the last six games.   All that said....   We stand a decent chance to win a number of these games.     Only the J'Ville game feels like a likely loss.   The other five feels like we've got a decent shot at each.   We should be competitive in those five games.    So, we might surprise to the upside and win more than we might expect.     The team is playing better.   By group,  the defense is getting better,   the special teams are solid,  and even the offense is a little more cohesive and efficeint.     And each unit might get a little better down the stretch.   We might surprise a lot of people,  including ourselves.
