Mack instantly comes to mind for me. He may not be a game wrecker right now, but how will we ever know what he’s capable of, the way things are as of now. Give the man the rock!

Hilton is a game changer, and I would say Hooker as well. Probably no one else though.

Simon is capable of game changing plays.

I agree. Completely forgot about him somehow. Good catch! :thmup:

Hopefully Simon becomes a much needed leader this D so desperately needs!!!

That's what I say.  Surely Ballard holds onto him.

Have you not been watching games? Hilton led the league in recieving yards last year.   Hooker and Simon have been changers this year

Hilton has one TD this year. That is not a game changer in my book.

Simon is a game changer. If we got better rushers to go with him, we would be like Sacksonville. He beat a triple team Monday night, not to mention the pick 6

Excluding Luck they have TY, Mack, Simon, and I think Hooker is on his way to being one.  Still not enough but three of those guys are new to the Colts this year so it’s a step forward.

Some of you game tape watchers may know, but is the ghost not separating or is Brisset not getting him the ball?  You can't game change without an opportunity.

If the Young’s guys develop we could have a few game changers. The silver lining out of this season

This could be said of all 32 teams. We're talking about right now, guys that are game changers now. You're giving a bit of a lazy response.

 If Geathers gets healthy, he could be.

 

Of our 8 wins last year, 2 of those wins came from game defining plays by Clayton Geathers. His forced fumble on Hunter Henry versus the Chargers and his 4th down stop on Demarco Murray versus the Titans. The injury is a disaster for him as he was becoming a quality stater at SS for us.

He is also playing without his quarterback.   He led the league in yards last year.   He is certainly a game changer.

The criticism of Hilton is a little much.  Considering he's playing with a QB who has been here a little over a month, he's having a pretty good season.

Probably about 25-26 fan bases do not have to ask this question because they all ready know who their game changers are....To me this subject even being wondered about by the Colts fan base just more puts to the point of our sad situation with this team COMPARED TO THE REST OF THE NFL

By "Game Changers" I assume you mean guys that are capable of making important plays that win us games.

 

Luck  -  no explanation necessary  (NEN)

Gore  -  can get 1st down

Mack  -  one broken tackle from TD

TY  -  8 inches of daylight...

Moncrief  -  just catch the TD...

Doyle  -  just catch it and hold on for the 1st down

Kelly  -  NEN

Simon  -  NEN

Sheard  -  NEN

Davis  -  NEN

Hooker  -  NEN

Geathers  -  just stay healthy

Vinatieri  -  NEN

Julio Jones has zero. He not a game changing WR either?? 

 

Antonio Brown only has 2 TDs this yr. He not a game changer?? 

If he is does that mean if Hilton gets 1 more TD this week than Brown, he becomes a game changer? 

 

And if you think Brown/Jones arent game changing WRs, who is??

For me you have to score the ball to be a game changer. What you've done in the past has no merit for what a player is doing in the here and now. Catching passes for a lot of yards means a whole lot less if you can't do it in the red zone for scores. I guess we just see this from a totally different perspective.

I think there is a lot more you can do other than score TDs to change the outcome of a game. How often does a key 3rd down catch keep a game alive, or put the nail in the coffin for the other team? 

And there are always reasons for players not scoring. Brown and Jones both have to deal with game changing RBs on their roster, so red zone looks are usually going to trend towards running backs. Plus their QBs have both not been nearly as good as they were last year. 

I think to be a game changer you have to be a player that if they went down you would seriously notice. If Brown/Jones go down, their entire offensive gameplan changes. Them being in or out literally changes how that game is played (for both teams). 

 

So yah we are definitely coming from 2 different places. But you do you.

Colts in second halves of games. That’s the biggest game changer!
