I even sat through the absolute thrashing we took from New Orleans last year when Brees was throwing 62 points up on us and Shawn Payton was in the booth eating a hotdog.

Not today. I can't stomach watching the Pats crush us like this.

At least Pat McAfee can tackle.

That's all I got right now. I'm so bummed!! :(

We looked so great in the first quarter too!!!

That tackle wasn't a tackle. It was a body slam.

We were stomped pretty good - no doubt.

But just think; before this year began not many would have thought this game would have meant anything. The reality is that this showed this team how much more they have to improve.

I think it's a wake up call for them and i'm glad it came now when they still have time to recover and have meaningful games left to play. If this had been played later in the year and eliminated them from the playoffs i would be worried about next year. As it is I'm looking forward ro seeing if they can bounce back agaist Buffalo.

We're not out of it yet! Coaching staff has a lot of work to do. Let's put this one behind us!

Yeah, this is a pretty humiliating and embarassing day to be a Colts fan. The Patriots are a tier 1 team and the Colts just aren't. Hopefully in 4-6 years that will change though, Luck and this team will get better and the Colts will once again be able to legitimately say they are as good as the Patriots. Until that point it's fun to see that Manning hasn't lost any stride and to be a Broncos fan.

Fun game; I was a bit annoyed in the first quarter, but the Patriots dominated from the 2nd quarter on. Luck looked good, but he made some atrocious throws mixed in with his solid throws.

Colts' defense did an excellent job of shutting down the run for the most part.

Interesting, of course, that the Patriots' ST far outplayed the Colts' ST.

I'm trolling by calling Brady the GOAT? It's just an opinion.

No, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. Obviously Brady is a good quarterback, just all your other responses are just unnecessary. You're going into a teams forums who your team just trounced, what kind of response do you think you're going to get? I'll give you a hint, not warm fuzzy ones. But I'm sure you knew that already. Regardless, pats played a great, complete game today on all sides of the ball. Congrats.

don't forget the 1st couple series is a "feeling out" time for most teams, although BB does adjust quicker. Once they went to the blitz is was lights out.

I was amazed at how bad our ST's played today. The first pick was justa bad decision. Luck is smart and adjusted...but then just made a bad throw on the next one. That was as much a rookie play i've seen out of him yet.

Kudos to the Pats for a sound thumping. I'm still proud to be a Colts fan, and am excited about where this team is headed.

I've gotta say, Brady looks even quicker in his decision making and quicker in his release than I've seen in past years. I think turnovers and ST play are where the Pats won today, but Brady is a machine.

I still can't stand the Pats, or their obnoxious fans who feel they have some kind of reason to gloat, but that was as thorough a thrashing of the Colts as I hope to see for a long time.

I noticed that too. I even said "Oh crap" out loud.

I hate to interrupt the trolling/smack talk feast too here.

Yeah the kids a player. But, you guys sure gave him a welcome back to reality check tonight. Good Lord. I know he messed up at times but I even felt bad for him near the end. It just wasn't gonna happen. He tried though.

Only thing is I'm not sure I like his face. Maybe its the haircut:)

Plus a little thrashing by an elite team is good for him. As in thrown into the lions den.

Well they all shaved their heads last week for Pagano. I think Luck is in the strange "growing it out" now phase. I think he grows hair fast too, everywhere.

I think he looks awesome in his uniform. Great helmet face too.

This thread is all over the place.....

Well genius, that's probably because it is not possible for the Patriots to meet the Colts in the SB. *doh*

Nope, but last time they met in the big game AFCCG Manning and the Colts won.

And since then Brady has been outdone by another Manning, several times. Deal with it.

    • I wanted to rewatch the game before I posted anything on this because I came away with the feeling we didn't do much outside of a handfull of big plays on offense and the same on defense.   So, final thoughts...   Offense Good to see some explosive plays!! But... Outside of the 2 big plays to Campbell and Hilton, Wentz didn't have a good day at the office. 11/20, 223 yards, 2 TDs to 9/18, 120 yards, 1 TD without those plays.  Of course if we didn't have to do all that much outside of those big plays. Also, we're still seeing examples of him holding the ball too long. Taylor is a beast and I just don't get the idea of only getting him 14 carries. He's averaging 14,5 carries per game with a low of 10 and a+ high of 17. It's ridiculous. Seemed like Hines was only in the game to tire the defense and set them up for Taylor. That's a shame I think. He's one of our a biggest playmakers in my opinion. It was great to see Hilton out there again! I honestly had written him off as done, with last years performance and his injury this year, but he proved me wrong. Campbell is a bust. That has been my opinion for some time now, but I really thought he was going to prove me wrong with that 51 yard TD. Then he got injured... again. Best ability is availability. He isn't. Mo had a good TD catch, but should've had another. His second drop I blame Wentz for - bad placement. Had a great block on Taylor's 2nd TD. Pittman had 2 solid grabs and a few good blocks down the field but not much outside of that. Fisher sucks. He's not far removed from an achilles injury, but he still has a long way to go. Hoping he'll improve because right now it's looking like Ballard crapped the bed on this one - Leno is doing great. The rest of the Oline is putting in solid work right now and it's hopefully only going to get better with Q and Smith returning... even if Smith didn't play his best up until his injury. Defense Loved Leonards reaction after the first play being a false start on Houston.  I hate this defensive scheme with a passion. We gave up a 67% completion rate and 243 yards to a rookie and 124 yards rushing. That's concerning in my book. Still, we showed up and made some important turnovers, because without them it could have gotten ugly.  Happy to see Paye on the field again and with an interception of all things - I'm not accepting anything else, that call getting turned over was a joke even if it ultimately benefitted us. Still not nearly enough pressure from our Dline - they didn't have Tunsil on the field. I needed to see some sacks from our DEs. Ya-Sin is having a good season so far. Good for him and us! Willis had a good game, I think, as did Leonard, Moore and Okereke. Fantastic interception by Rodgers late in the game. Overall a lot of good things and something to build on. Now we just need to do it against the good teams and especially against the Titans.   Lastly, we beat one of the worst teams in football, comfortably, and we should have if we want to get to the playoffs. We have to beat the good/great teams if we want to get anywhere IN the playoffs and we haven't been able to for some time now. We had a good game against the Ravens up until we collapsed in the 4th quarter, and they just manhandled the Chargers. That's encouraging and heartbreaking all at the same time. I would like to see us beat at least one of either the Bills, Bucs or Cardinals this year, but we still have a long way to go to be one of the elite teams.
    • 17 games, 7 playoff teams, weak division   There's a long way to go.
    • Wentz looked damn good from the pocket.  He threw some dimes.  The TD Mo Allie dropped was the definition of a perfect pass.    
    • Was it his ankle he’s having trouble with?   seemed better with lateral movement and it sure seemed when he tried to sprint he pulls up.   he’s a straight up savage!   Go Colts!
    • Interesting that 4 of the top 6 include a guy drafted in the 4th, one in the 5th, one in the 6th and an UDFA.    Q is better than all of them (though Teller has really made a case the last year+ to be in that conversation). But paying $22-23M for a LG just seems really high. Going to be interesting to see what the final numbers look like when they do it.
