Fun Fact Of the Day

Recommended Posts

We are 10-5. If we loose next week that puts us at 10-6, our very same record as Manning's last season. With what we have surrounding Luck we got the same Ws as we did with Manning in 2010. There can be no description of just how impossible that was stated to be in the beginning of the season.

 

Even more if we win next week(Doubtful with Texans playing for something and us playing for nothing) we will be 11-5 with MORE WINS than we had in 2010. Simply beautiful. So proud of this team.

I'm proud of this team too. But Peyton willed us to that record with even less around him than Andrew has. Remember all the injuries?

I remember all the injuries but we still had a better all around team then than now.

Not at the end of the season, IMHO.

I disagree. We had many of the same holes we have now, plus some (no corners that season, Aaron Francisco at safety). We had a far inferior coaching staff. I think, sans the quarterbacks, the 2012 team is better than the 2010 team was.

 

The point still stands, though. It's remarkable that we've won 10 games.

Agreed on the similar holes but a few of our wins this season have come from a simple roll going our way vs it going towards the opponent. Plus the argument that the 2010schedule was harder than the 2012 plays a factor as well. Regardless it's a good time to be an Indy fan.

According to PFW , the 2012 Colts are the team most effected by injuries. Start with the D Line. 4 players counted to contribute there. Go to the O Line , been horrible there. Lost 2 Rb's for extended time. Starting CB's .. Davis and Powers. Lost a safety. Angerer and Conner at LB. I guess been healthy at QB , both kickers and WR. Rest of the roster ripped apart by injuries.

There's injuries, then there are quality injuries. The 10 team lost a lot of great players. We have Powers and 2 D starters who are interchangeable lost on D. Collie is the only quality guy I can think of on O.

I'm still proud of this team thogh.

This is true , but then again that 2010 had way more talent... right ? We lost Freeney for a few games , we lost Mathis for a few games , we lost Davis for a few games ... other than Luck and Wayne , what good player did we not lose for a period of time. Point is some are saying the 2012 team had more talent than the 2010 team. My point iis both were beset with injuries

2012 Colts Poem


 


In 2011, we had a terrible year,


But you didn't see us shed a tear.


Our Players didn't pass the buck,


We went and drafted Andrew Luck.


 


And then we hear through the media,


Coach Pagano has leukemia.


We left the lights on, all the long,


To show we were still ColtsStrong.


 


As the year ends, where are we?


In the playoffs, unexpectedly.


Now we light our homes with Blue,


To show we're Colts Fans, through and through.

Plus Blaire White started 4 games in 2010.  We also now have an infinitely better coaching staff, imo, than what we had back then.

    • Im personally in the wait and see group.  My reasons for optimism are the things being said are in line with how I think a team should be ran (but as we all know talk only goes so far) and I think we got a good coaching staff to facilitate a vision. Which is also something I love is that this team seems to have a vision or an identity if you will. Something we sorely lacked with the previous regime.   My reasons for caution though are what worry me.  While I liked parts of the draft I feel like Ballard did not take what the draft gave him. And I'll be in even more caution if we go and sign multiple defensive ends next year (it's going to be a great year for the entire dline) when we spent 2 high picks on them this year. To me it seems like he got to cute for his britches after making the obvious pick and that reminds me of Grigson. Is that an overreaction? Time will tell.  But it's a big reason for concern since this is supposedly the main entrance of talent is via this man's draft strategy.  Also I don't want a Polian approach to free agency and I get the feeling that is what we are getting.  That's underwhelming especially in an age where the salary cap is ever increasing and the options to sign decent talent for reasonable money are becoming more and more viable. Take the Breeland free agent as an example.    Either way despite my worries I'd say I have more optimism than pessimism and a far playoff run would probably have me sold.  But less than. 8 wins and I'm going to be questioning pretty hard.  Luck is good enough for us to reach the 50/50 mark. 
    • Well I mean new place, so not unexpected but could have fun with it
    • Rookies, Injured players, and QB's were to report today.
    • At least you’re consistent...    wrong, but consistent.   This is now twice you’ve said people here would be blaming Ballard if the Leonard deal hadn’t gotten done.   The only people who’d be bashing Ballard are the ones who don’t understand the new CBA.   Everyone else — the vast majority — would be bashing Leonard and his agents.   That’s where the responsibility would’ve been correctly placed.    For some reason you don’t know that.   And once again you trot out another wrong example with Ballard....   in your mind “he can’t close the deal.” You take the 2018 free agency season and interpret it as he CAN’T close the deal,  when the correct understanding is that the only deal he wanted to close on in 2018 were the ones on HIS TERMS.   And as I’ve explained to you repeatedly, Ballard closed the deal 10 times in the 2017 free agency season.  But you keep forgetting that even though it was only one year ago.   Ballard wasn’t the problem with Leonard,  the agents who wanted things they mostly weren’t going to get were the problem.   It’s the first day of camp and here you are knocking heads with folks.   You might want to consider keeping your powder dry and enjoying the new season.    Just a thought....
