      I want better coaching and smarter front office decisions. Grigson's last few drafts were okay but that doesn't change the fact he hasn't built a good team around Luck. They all need to work together to actually accomplish championships.

       

      I want consistency in the play as well. I'm tired of them changing things around and playing relaxed even if we have a big lead. Monachino's prevent defense is so awful it sickens me. 

       

      Why care about gender in this age? If they're a good coach, hire them. 

    3. southwest1

      I think the reason we play relaxed is because our secondary meaning DBs in the secondary minus Davis feels like a revolving injury door a lot. I just wish INDY could find a strength & conditioning coach that actually kept players loose, flexible, & ready to roll week in week out. 

       

      I wish a journalist in the NFL would write an in depth expose on which teams keep their players healthy the longest during the season & breakdown what criteria makes a solid staff on the rehab & endurance front across the league. 

       

      It's not all Monachino's fault though. Our pass rush isn't great outside of Mathis, Walden, Jackson, & Langford. It's not like we have Buffalo's defense in our arsenal. 

       

      Regarding your last 2 sentences, the NFL is slow to adapt to change. Look at how long it took to adopt independent concussion experts & protocols. Or even hire female NFL referees. Yes, I know team owners can hire who ever they want to coach & coordinate a roster. However, sexism still exists in 2016 & getting a full time opportunity to instruct players in a specific unit isn't as commonplace as one would currently hope it is. It's changing for the better thankfully, but the pacing is slow in NFL ownership circles in terms of permanent coordinator positions or running the whole program as a woman. 

       

      All I'm saying is this: Just because society has evolved, it doesn't always translate to meaningful hires in high profile jobs or salaries traditionally held by men for women in the 21st Century. That's reality. I don't agree with it, but longterm change always moves at glacier speed.

      We need to find other decent corners to help Vontae Davis out. Also, the strength & conditioning is killing these players too so we need a new one of those too.

       

      We don't have any talent in the pass rush, so we NEED to be LB heavy in this upcoming draft, which has so much talent coming out of it on the defensive side of the ball. But still, Monachino still hasn't lived up to par of what he should have been doing. We're the 30th/31st ranked defense in the NFL, we're not stopping anyone with it.

       

      Thank God, what they also need to fix is the "No Fun League" aspect, because players are getting fined for even staring at the opposing team this season. It's ridiculous and sucking the fun out of this game.

       

      Things could be better or worse for this team, but at least we aren't the Browns.

      Happy B Day MOB! Better late than never right? I do like cake. Maybe it's the inner child in me. I don't know. I hope your festive occasion was a memorable 1 anyway.

      MOB I don't want to play like we played vs Chiefs. TB will not give us a chance at a comebacks

    3. IndyScribe

      IndyScribe

      Gabriel, if our offense plays the way it did in the second half, and our defense plays the way it did during the first KC game, then we should have a good chance.

    4. adamthyst

      adamthyst

      As long as our defense doesn't get torched like we did in the Wild Card.

  7. Looks like T.Y. won't get 1000 yards this year.

      I'll put my jersey on it that we can make the playoffs. I'll be damned if they don't.

      I, for one, am glad it is week one, get it out of the way so we don't have to hear the hype leading up to it ALL season

      It is what it is. I just want both Luck & Manning to have a competitive game with no injuries on either side.

      If anyone will ever beat Undertaker it will be Cena sadly.

      Seth Rollins future World Champion!

      Maybe HBK will come out of retirement to beat the Undertaker.

      Seth Rollins is one heck of a wrestler. All of the Shield are.

      I don't think anyone should break his streak.

      Yes, Gramz did start a great 12 Days of Christmas thread. You can find it here:

  11. I hope we win out, so much as we don't play the darned Patriots in the playoffs.

      If Luck can cut down on interceptions vs Foxboro, INDY has a shot of keeping the game close at least.

      Per Mike Chappell he might miss 1 or 2 games.

      That's not too bad. Hate to see him lose time though. Rest up, Reggie.

    4. southwest1

      We need Reggie down the stretch. I'm cool if we sit him down this week as a cautionary measure.

  13. D'Qwell Jackson's just one of the many pieces we need. :)

      I don't know a great deal about Jackson. How much impact do you see him making? Do you see him being a starter?

    3. adamthyst

      adamthyst

      He was the Browns' defensive captain, and he was a very good LB for them. He should have a solid impact, and I don't know about starting because we have Freeman and McNary as well, they could rotate.

  14. This team frustrates me. Not sure how to feel but I will always bleed blue and white.

    1. Stephen

      what frustrates me is they keep starting reed satele when neither are doing much. plus they cut whalen and rogers still doesn't see field.

    2. adamthyst

      adamthyst

      I don't know what else to feel anymore. I'm losing faith in this team and I know they have the talent to pull out victories.

    3. adamthyst

      adamthyst

      Actually, not faith, it's the confidence in this team. They have played like a steaming pile of garbage.

  15. Girl I'm interested likes the Steelers, maybe this will be an interesting Sunday when the time comes.

    1. Nadine

      Steelers are my favorite team to beat!

      This should be an interesting game that's for sure. I LOVE beating the Patriots though.

      We get to beat Pitt, NE and the Cowboys in the same season, all my favorites.

  16. After that comeback I have been playing Don't Stop Believin' and Livin' On A Prayer quite a lot.

      Why are you so down on Pags & Grigs colts8718? Do you remember Jim Caldwell on 2011? That's worth complaining about. Getting to the AFC Championship Game. That screams success to me.

  19. Well, what now?

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yep, it's strange to not play in the post season this yr out of habit. As in, I'd prefer to not repeat this experience the following season either. 

       

      As for the SB, I'd like to see NE vs GB or Atlanta personally. 

    2. adamthyst

      adamthyst

      I was talking for Colts offseason plans, which probably isn't happening. As far as playoffs go, anyone but New England and Houston.

  20. Denver or NE?

    1. AllYouNeedIsLuck

      AllYouNeedIsLuck

      NE. I'd like to play Denver for a chance to go to the big game.

      I also think NE is easier to beat because their offense has few weapons and their defense isn't anything special either. What they have over us is coaching and yes, still QB. We could win @ NE though. I'm fairly positive about that

    2. adamthyst

      adamthyst

      After that game last night, anything is possible. We could go all the way, but I won't believe that until we make it there.

      That was probably the worst we've looked all season but it was just one of those games. Credit to the Chargers for being efficient enough to capatalise.

    2. adamthyst

      That was the worst we looked all season. You can't win every game and it happens. I'm confident they will roll back and win here.
