  1. Dumb on Toronto's part. Leonard will be a Laker next year now because he doesn't want to be in Toronto at all. Magic is loving this because now the Lakers can just sign him next summer and they give up nobody. Lakers are going to be unbeatable in 19-2020. Mike Greenberg reporting Leonard is very unhappy with this. That may even mess with Toronto's Chemistry? So they traded DeRozan who had 3 years left on his contract for a 1 year rental. Toronto's window is this year and after that they are done. This helps us out after this season. No way he re-signs with Toronto.

    Can the Colts win Now ?

    I know, if I remember right you were saying we look like an 8-8 team a while back that was after the Draft and Free Agency (with Luck). 8-8 compared to 4-12 is much better. I am sure there will be 2 or 3 games that can turn ugly on us. Like at Philly and at NE. I want to see how we play the Jags with Luck back, that will be real interesting.

    Yeah making the Playoffs at 9-7 is a 50/50 thing. Some teams do, some teams don't. Usually 10-6 gets you in but that doesn't always either. 8-8 is very fair on your part as you at least don't think we will be Bad.

    I would probably say as of now, this fits each category for someone's prediction: 6-10 = People think we will suck again. Luck may even get injured again or be rusty most of the season. Our Defense will be Bad again. Reich won't do a Good job, etc.. 7-9 = People thinking we are still Bad and wont win the close games but will show improvement. 8-8 = Reasonable and a safe way of thinking, it is probable this happens. 9-7 = Reasonable but just being more optimistic and thinking Luck will play all 16 games and be 100% + the Defense and O.Line will be better. The new system under Reich will benefit the team. 10-6 = A Stretch, alot of things will have to go our way like I mentioned in the 9-7 category. We need more breaks to win 10 though, not as many to go 9-7. 11-5 = A huge stretch and everything right has to go our way.

    Dodgers were going to win their Division anyway. It's pretty big news but they need BullPen help more than anything. The Cubs goal now is to get the 1 Seed and HFA so it will be an easier path in theory to win the NL.

    Let me ask you this, what is within reason in your opinion? I think 9 wins is within reason if Luck is healthy and us possibly squeezing into the Playoffs. If someone said we are winning the SB or going 13-3, that is obviously not LOL. Just asking, I liked your Post as it has fair points but do you think 9-7 is a huge stretch? To me 11-5 is a huge stretch but not 9-7. Even if we go 8-8 but Luck looks like old Luck, I would be ok with it as a I understand we aren't a SB contender right now. That would look really solid going into 2019. Ballard will probably go all out in Free Agency in 2019 if Luck is 100%.

    This I agree with. I just don't think we are as Bad as people think coming into this season. I don't think we can win the SB this year but I agree with your point. We could go from 4-12 to 9-7 with our Star QB back and a better Defense. That isn't even a huge jump like we had in 2012 when we went 11-5 from 2-14.

    That is why the easy/safe answer to a prediction is 8-8. Nobody really knows how good we will be? I am more optimistic than most so I will say 9-7. Although I have seen a few on here say 11-5. I am not that bold. My 9-7 may change after Pre-Season but for now 9-7 is possible. After Pre-Season is over we should have a better feel for how we may be.

    Brewers were indeed and they have lost 6 straight overall. Great times IMO.

    I still don't think 9 wins is far fetched. We were in alot of games last year and the team was weaker on paper. I know what you are saying though regarding Reps in a new Offense and Team Chemistry. They are very important for a QB and his WR's. Great thing is Luck and TY should have great chemistry anyway because they have played together for a long time (I know it will be a different Offense but still). This season will be interesting to say the least. Predicting a record is really tough to do because we could be a team that still makes alot of mistakes and loses the close games that goes 6-10 or a team that wins the close games, Luck gets rid of rust and we go 10-6. It is just a matter of what someone may think will happen. I lean toward 9-7/8-8 at worse. I just think the Luck factor will be huge and I also think our Defense and O.Line will better as well.

    Why can't everyone be like Andrew Luck and just read books, watch Mr Rogers, and own a flip phone. The world would be a much better place. The picture of that girls face is awful.

    Shows you how old I am getting. I actually thought it was better even on Sega. Madden 93 rocked!

    It really just comes down to Andrew Luck's health whether or not we can win now. The Defense will be better (it can't be worse than last year) because it was real Bad last year so that will even be a boost. On paper the O.Line looks better as well. Yeah there is more to a team than just a QB as Nick Foles proved last year but in our case Luck covers up so many deficiency's we have overall. Last season we were 4-12 but had leads in 6 of our losses in the 2nd Half. Brissett is a Good backup but lets face it he isn't Luck and isn't the finisher Luck is. We may have won all 6 of those games we lost and we had Luck healthy? At least 4 or 5 anyway as he has finished so many close games in his career. 9-7 is doable with a Wildcard spot if Luck is 100%. I will stick to that prediction for now. Luck is worth 5 wins or so IMO.
  15. The 1 thing people in here aren't factoring in is, last season was the 1st season our Core players played together. Do you and others not think they would be better in season 2 even had they made no moves? I do just based off having more experience playing with each other. We added Evans who is a Good player as well.
