Jules

I would prefer to play to win vs. Houston

Recommended Posts

i just dont see the benefit of resting. This team is full of rookies and young guys. They need all the meaningful experience they can get.

Flip a coin.

When Luck is getting dumped by Watt all day, they'll be running a risk, for no tangible gain.

The Texans are going to play because of today, so maybe the Colts swing back?

Take your pick.

I'm pretty sure the Colts play to win. I'm not sure it's a great idea though.

I think you play to win. With that said, when you have nothing to play for you play smart. Luck needs to get rid of the ball quickly and avoid getting hit and needs to only throw to receivers when they are not in danger of getting decapitated. Defensively they need to play disciplined and not play with reckless abandon.

If they can win playing good fundamental ball that's great. If they have to lay it all on the line to get the win, then it's not worth it at this point in the season. This is dress rehearsal for the playoffs.

I honestly don't think resting players helps.

I don't think it hurts either. If resting players hurts a team, then how come people aren't complaining about bye weeks?

I think if someone isn't 100% healthy or the team has a substantial lead in the game, players should be rested.

Well yes I agree with that, but people are talking about going into the game and resting main starters like Luck or Wayne.

 

I think we had plenty of bad karma the last decade of resting starters in the last couple weeks. I feel that was why he didn't go past the Divisional round in 2005, that team should have won the Super Bowl.

I might be wrong but Pagano never struck me as "a resting healthy starters" type of guy. From the moment he walked in here he seemed to want us to go all out in everything.

 

 

PLEASE destroy the Texans.   I hate them.

    • It’s the first time camp Is being held in Westfield, In. Went to school in Westfield from 1st grade through Senior year so pretty cool to see they are holding colts camp there. 
    • First words Frank Reich says to Quenton Nelson over the phone on draft night: “We can’t be more excited to have you as the cornerstone of what we are about to build.  We're expecting you to bring everything you got, that nasty attitude, that physicality..."   Chris Ballard on Quenton Nelson: "He has everything we want. He's tough, passionate, he loves the game....He's nasty, he's tough and his football character is off the charts.” "You take a guy like this, this tells your locker room what you stand for. When he walks [in] and they watch him work and watch him play, watch him practice, this is the standard. He stands for all the right things. Stands for team. Stands for pushing his teammates.”   Quenton Nelson on himself- before the draft: “I also help the offense establish the run through my nastiness” “I want to dominate all my opponents and take their will away to play the game (by) finishing them past the whistle”   Coltsfeva, I agree about kids and I don't want my son looking up to a player like like Ndamukong Suh.  But Ballard and Reich know what they are doing. They took Nelson for more than his blocking ability. Its seems clear to me they want Nelson to set the culture of the offensive line and the whole team like Larry Allen did for the Dallas Cowboys in the 90s.   I have confidence that Nelson isn’t going to be stupid and cost his team, and that Reich’s team isn’t going to develop a reputation of being dirty players. I’m also confident that very soon, people are going to stop using the word “soft” when discussing the Indianapolis Colts.
    • I thought there were only two we drafted and both weren't hold outs, they had prior requirements that prevented them from signing
