Where was this effort vs Houston?  They play for him.  Get outta here with that nonsense.  They got Lucky literally and came back to beat a bad football team.  Then celebrated like they won the Super Bowl.  Big whoop.  If that doesn't epitomize the culture of mediocrity currently surrounding this franchise nothing does.  

His point was that if the players weren't behind Chuck, they wouldn't fight back to win this game. This really is similar to what the team has done Luck's whole career: be able to fight and stay in games late. I also am sure they are't celebrating an 8-8 season but winning Mathis' last game, winning for the coach, etc. Look at the Bills rolling over against a bad Jets team, we have a coach the players respect and fight for, that is important.

I think its unrealistic to think or expect a team to lose on purpose. The goal is to win and that's what every team tries to do. Its more realistic to expect a team to make good to great decisions when the get on the clock and strategically in terms of trading downward for more picks and whatever else.

I didn't expect us to lose. Quite the contrary...I expected us to come out and roll this crappy jaguar team. To play hard 4 quarters and execute. To look like we were well prepared and better than 500. Instead we had the same lackluster performance we've seen over the past couple years. Yes we came back and was given a win by like the second worst franchise in the game. We looked like crap for like 75% of the game and this has been the same story for two years. All I was saying that feel good win still had a cost...and it's probably 8 draft positions....8 more opportunities to have the best player in each rd...all 7 rds. Again...always want to win....just some wins have consequences and I can't be mad at those that wish we lost.

This game shouldn't change anything. A comeback against one of the worst teams in the league.

But if you were looking for an excuse to keep him...it can't hurt! I'd love to see Peyton as our GM and let him decide!

Why did you expect that? Jags have played every team in this division tough all year. Most of their losses have been close outside of that first Titans game.

Our Colts concluded the 2016 NFL season, defeating the Jaguars 24-20, and again as in 2015, finished with 8 wins and 8 losses.  A bright sign that tour Colts concluded their 2016 schedule, and began New Year's Day 2017, with a win over the Jaguars.

 

 Now the long offseason begins since the Colts were eliminated since their road loss at Oakland last Sunday.   Andrew Luck was healthy most of the season, but the Colts were still short of making the postseason.

 

Colts management will evaluate the past season, and make the inevitable changes, such as which players re-sign and retain, and those who will be waived or released as free agents.  Also if the Colts are going to retain General Manager Ryan Grigson, the scouting staff, and Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff.

 

Not only will the Colts sign veteran free agants beginning in March, when the NFL calendar year begins, but before March, the Colts management will be at LOS (the building) after the Super Bowl 51, where college players are invited for the upcoming NFL Combine.

 

Player interviews prior, and into the 2017 NFL Draft, then the Organized Team Activities (OTA's)  in May and June before the Colts 90-man roster reorts to training camp in the summer.

 

Colts 2016 campaign and being eliminated from the NFL Playoffs  is just a temporary setback for now..  But I am sure the Colts braintrust will staff the talented team before opening week in September that will represent our city, and compete with the 2017 Indianapolis Colts.

 

My pleasure preparing the Colts Game Day Threads, and my sincere appreciation and gratefulness again for Nadine and the rest of the moderating team allowing me to start these threads.

 

I also like to thank the rest of the registered  members here on the Official Colts Fan Forum Message Board here on http://www.colts.com/  along with myself, for participating and posting your threads and narrating the action throughout the course of each game.

 

Colts also have a new rival to reckon with,  in the Houston Texans, who are on a three-game winning streak over them.  Not only have they achieved their first road win at Indianapolis in their team history back in 2015, but the Texans  also swept the Colts for the first time in 2016.  and both last and this season won back-to-back AFC South Division Titles.  Colts should find a way to staff a Colts team to  win more games and both reclaim the AFC South, and dethrone the Texans in 2017.

 

Thanks for participating, let's do it again in the upcoming 2017 NFL season.  Stay Colts Strong throughout the offseason, and as always GO COLTS!!!!!   :)  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:    :coltshelmet:  :coltshorse:  :coltslogo:

I will say that Bill Polian seemed almost giddy on the radio with Lamey this afternoon...he may know something!

 

 

There will be lots of talks and rumors around Colts in upcoming days/weeks. 1 person knows it for sure: Irsay himself.

    • Barring some camp breakout story, I don't see how this is wrong. The only thing is they might cut Hunt and keep McGill as a 3rd down DT, but that might be a bit too light on the DE's
    • Yeah, it's pretty obvious that INDY's picks usually occurred around commercial breaks, which meant that our selections were rarely even discussed. Mike went a little bananas on his Philly love too. I know he lives there, but everything was Philly this & Philly that. He did slam that MSNBC Business reporter who massacred their fly eagle fly anthem though in his own way that I found amusing.    Look, I still love Mike as a draft analyst & I know that INDY will never get the love like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, & the City of Brotherly Love will from Mayock & it's okay to me. I know my favorite teams to watch: INDY, NY Giants, NE, Denver; GB; & New Orleans because Sean Payton is so innovative on offense.    Can I ask a question? Is it wrong of me for Make A Wish Foundation recipients to think a little bigger after surviving cancer? If it's what you really want--To introduce a draft pick cool. I just would aim higher or bigger I guess. You know maybe meet a famous band or take in a show with back stage passes. To each their own, I guess. Reading a name off a card as your dying wish or miraculous recovery wish feels like small potatoes to me. 
    • Why do people keep saying this? Walker runs 4.63. Hes not a two down LB. Hes on the field a 3 downs.
    • Here is a podcast from Sports Illustrated that features Zach Banner:     And here's Banner on The Herd:     Seems like a smart young man with personality. That's good after we lost the only guy with personality on our roster this off-season.
    •   Here's my depth chart of the current roster, including my prediction of my final 53. Assuming no major FA signings or trades, here's what I see.   IMO Parry is def gone with the draft of Glover Stewart. We didn't draft someone in the 4th round to let it go to the practice squad.   Of our 9 DLs, 2 are gone for sure making a total of 7. Amongst the 2 to be cut will likely be the following:
        McGill - $0 dead cap Parry - 110K dead cap Woods - 250K dead cap Hunt - 500K dead cap   At OLB, Maggitt will def be gone before Mingo is; he only has a $4000 dead cap (NOT A TYPO) while Mingo will stay simply because he was a former 1st rounder and we'll still hoping he pulls a Jerry Hughes after the latter went to Buffalo.
