Afc South Goes South

If everything goes perfectly for Peyton and he could be back in 3 months, that takes the Colts to the Panthers game following the bye week. IMO if the Colts can get to 4-6 at the bye with Collins, Peyton could come back and win the final 6 games. If healthy this colts team matches up well with all 6 teams on the schedule after the bye week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

3 months is gonna be an absolute miracle and even if it happens that would put it at Dec. 11th for Baltimore and the final 4 games.

even if peyton does return this season, which i think he wont, it will take him a few weeks to get back to himself! remember when he had his knee surgery and was out for the whole preseason, they started out 1-3, then he returned to himself!! IMO houston will win the division this year and im hoping we can get a 1-10 pick in the draft! im thinking 4-6 wins this year, schedule isnt to easy! this will be a completly different team now which could also help indy out because now teams wont know what to prepare for and expect without manning under center!!! so get well #18!! soon please lol!!!

there is no chance he is back that soon, and it would be a foolish decision by the franchise to play him at all this season. this is not like a hammie or even a broken bone, this is a career ender if not handled right. Someone with the guts in the Colts franchise need to IR him now and eliminate any chance of him returning this season.

If the Texans don't win the division this year they should just give up and relocate or something. lol

If they don't win this year, Kubiak should be fired. I mean, personally, I wouldn't mind seeing him stay with the team for a long time; he would just keep the Texans out of the playoffs for longer, all the better for us.

Don't sleep on the Titans I know Fisher isn't there anymore but frankly I think they upgraded the QB poistion and they have Johnson back. They could be the surprise team this year.

If they aren't and the Texans fall flat on their face like they tend to do the AFC South could be the AFC's answer to the NFC West.

he should have been fired last year, Set up perfectly to win the division and after a 4-2 start 2-8 the rest of the year not good. The lockout saved his job. If he doesn't win the division this year he's gone.

AFC South

Manningless colts - under rated

tenn. titans - corrupt & confused

H. Texans - Over confident, but talented, they will boil over sooner or later.

J. Jaguars - very confused, wth

In other words, the only thing that has changed is now the Colts don't have Manning.

As I said before Hasselbeck is a great QB and the Titans could be a surprise pick.

Let me get this straight.

Titans are ok with a new QB in Hasselbeck but Colts are screwed with a new QB in Collins?

Very strange. I would put Hasselbeck and Collins as about equal. Both are "second tier" quality.

Well I'm optimistic about the whole thing, they're keeping Manning on the roster so if the rehab goes well he can play late in the season. I'm not counting on it but it's a nice thought.

that's assuming fusion is close to complete and nerve roots affecting triceps are also fully recovered. The latter being the bigger question mark.

The Colts can get to the bye with 3 loses or less without Manning. The Steelers, Saints and Falcons are the only 3 that that match up with/without Manning in the lineup. Look at the roster and quit listening to the "experts". They pick the Patriots every year and have been saying the window is closing for the Colts since the 06' season.

    • It doesn't really matter where you allocate your cap resources as long as you're paying guys who aren't going to put their feet up once they get paid.   And the reason this will always be true is because each roster's end strength can still be fine even with money unevenly distributed.  You either have a good roster or you don't.  And the Colts, fortunately, have a very good roster so I could care less where the money is piled.   For this season my only concern with the OL is Fisher holding up and living up to expectations.  After the draft that concern was a lot stronger than it is now.  Now I feel much better but if Fisher misses time or otherwise doesn't play well Wentz will be the guy who suffers.     Lastly paying two guys on an OL is not crazy either.  I'm fine with that in and of itself.  
    • Ballard has taken his shots at drafting defensive backs; Hooker, Wilson, Rock, Willis, Blackmon to name a few.  Some have worked out. That said I like the idea of adding a veteran FA or two as aces in the hole in case things go astray with our younger players.  Rhodes and Carrie are good examples.  I actually wouldn't mind adding another veteran like Breeland for example.  Another proven vet who can hold the fort if necessary.  Especially this year as we make a SB run.  17 games is a long season.  
    • I think Fisher was signed with the intention of keeping him well beyond 2021.  Ballard will pay and extend the players he wants to keep.  I don't worry about such things as spending too much on the OL.  That's Ballard's job.  I have confidence he knows what he is doing.  Too many variables can change the best of plans.  I don't get hung up on keeping players until they retire.  Very few players are able to do that.  As a fan I am just hoping for success and a chance at at SB very year.  
    • One of the biggest benefits of this defense is the ability to play it with middle of the road CBs.... If of course, you have a pass rush   You invest in pass rush DL vs CBs   If you play a lot of Man to man, you need 1 or 2 - 12-16M players   CBs are some of the most expensive position to fill   Jalen Ramsey's cap hit is 21 million this year.......     People keep calling on us to spend big FA money and early draft capitol on CBs, just like other teams   IMHO, keep bringing 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round CBs that are 6ft or bigger, and might run a 4.5 forty but can tackle   You do need a safety that can play to cover the deep ball when the DL doenst get home, but you cant have both          
    • In a way it doesn’t even matter if the cap goes way up. All that means is your stats are going to get paid more.
