Can't Wait For Victory Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

I will laugh my head off tomorrow when the Colts take out the Texans tomorrow. I think we have a few things going for us that the "experts" don't highlight too much:

1) Collins may not be prepared as much as we would like, but teams are not prepared for him. If you are the Texans, what do you game plan for? Same Colt offense? Multiple changes at the line? What if Colts come on and run a more traditional offense? Don't discount other teams not being prepared for someone.

2) The offensive line maybe be new and younger, but it is bigger and more physical. As a football coach, I find that run blocking comes quicker to a group then pass blocking. So I expect more running from the Colts and the suprising ability to do it much better than what people expect.

3) Other than Manning, the Colts are fairly healthly compared to last year.

4) The Colts, as a team, are improved. I believe the additions of Anderson, Brayton, and the beast named Drake Nevis will make a huge difference against the run. But I also think, because Andersono and Brayton may play more on running downs, Mathis and Freeney will be physically ahead of the tackles they line up on. Look what Freeney did in preseason with 3 sacks. I expect a monster season from Freeney and Mathis.

I fully expect the Colts to win tomorrow. I think Collins throws 2 TDs and we get 140 yards rushing. Collins is a good QB with a big arm. He will surprise some people.

It'll be a great game, I can't wait! I'm interested to see how Williams does as a LB

Yeah hopefully he does horrible & the transition doesn't go that smooth. Would be highly beneficial, for tomorrow. I like Mario as a player but don't want to see him smash the Colts. Brooks Reed is also a goliath linebacker, wonder if the LB core is strong and physical but lacks speed. I'm thinking it migh be a great opportunity to run down their throats tomorrow.

I agree with the OP but one thing is, coaches are just gonna look at how collins played with the texans. They know he wont run the offense like peyton does he's gonna get plays from the coaches and run audibles if he sees anything so hopefully the coaches are ready for this big test come tomorrow... i think im gonna go sleep late tonight just so i can wake up at 11 or 12 for the game.... hate waiting lol

its like this teams ran on us on first down normally had 2 an 5 passed an then ran or screened when freeney and mathis would sell out for the rush

the idea is to have brayton and anderson in early to stop the early run calls and force more second and long and third and long then we brong in a fresh freeney and mathis and let them loose

if we can get anytype of pass rush from brayton and anderson that would be great because after the first couple games and teams see this they will start trying to pass on early down due to lack of pass rush but this alot works in are favor if we can get an incomplete pass on early downs and stop the run to a 2 or 3 yards gain then we looking at 3 an 7 or 3 an 8 an freeney an mathis can let loose with out real fear of someone running on 3 an 3 or 3 an 1 like they normally would do but what is yet to be seen is what are we gonna get from the d tackle position also

i like wheeler in the joker look lets get creative use a 3'4 hybrid use wheeler in the joker route but dont always rush him drop him in coverage at time an things like this

I hope Drake plays and we protect Collins and if we can run the football that's everything this season running the rock! We do that we can compete and win games. Also stopping the run we can't give up long runs as per usual 2 or 3 times a game last years we've done this. Must tackle well! Colts 26 Texans 20. Go Colts!!!

Only way Carter gets 150 yrds against the Texans is if Addai gets injured or something. Addai is still the starter and he will get most of the carries especially during the early part of the season.

Without Manning it will definitely be "Do Addai Time!" But I want to see Carter get carries as well. Would be great if they could combine for 150.

I'm expecting a victory, too. The Colts will play a good game and the Texans are overrated. Colts 24-21 win in Houston.

    • My response was that you have to look past coachspeak and that Reich specifically is not alone in doing that.  He's basically just like everyone else in that regard.   To your point...  I think there's room to be more genuine about it than coaches are in this current and touchy-feely era.  Probably the most glaring this offseason was Gurley and the Rams played it that way to avoid negative press.  But they've been covering for him and denying the reality for a while now, that they made a grievous error paying him early.  Teams have taken notice too and RB contracts will inevitably follow.  But in the way it was done I think it would have been ok to say what the problem was (they never really did that and are one of the more tight-lipped teams in that way).  It would have been ok to say he wasn't happy with carries and/or whatever his physical ailment was (I followed this situation closely btw and he cost me a fantasy championship).   It's just the easy route, the lazy route IMO, to resort to talking guys up while on the other hand the business move tells a whole different story.  But the NFL is a copycat league so at some point a head coach may come along who will do that while sustaining wins and next thing you know there would be a new group of guys calling it honestly.
    • Will Hooker play below average or return to form?  Is Wills ready for a starting role?  Is Rhodes going to continue to decline?  Can Rock Ya Sun continue to build on his improved play in the 2nd half of the season.  Who is playing defensive end?  Will Turray bounce back from a season ending injury or need the year to acclimate himself.  Will Lewis ever make an appearance? Is Banogu ready for more playing time?      We are good at linebacker so not a question at every level. I think we have a pro bowler in the making in Okereke. 
    • I feel bad for anyone trying to keep count.     I love @Jared Cisneros and @Chloe6124, but their opinion/take changes like the coming and going of the tide.  (or as the tweeters tweet)  One minute they're on the same boat as everyone else, then all-of-a-sudden, they're on an island all by themselves defending an undefendable stance...  
    • I mentioned this once before in another thread, and I'll say it again here. There will be a TON of this team's final roster for the season playing on contracts that will expire at the end of this season (maybe almost half the roster). Heck, just two of those guys alone - Rivers and Brissett - will contribute to over $45 million in cap room for the team going into next offseason. So the team is going to be rolling in cash again next offseason. Could they top $100 million free? I don't know, but it will be huge. What does this have to do with Hooker? Here's what.   They didn't need to put themselves on the hook now for another year with him next year. Someone mentioned that all it takes is one team to offer him a boat load to lose him. Well, with the money this team will have, that won't matter. Because no matter what offers he gets, if this team wants him back, they will have way more than enough to match or beat those offers in order to keep him. And they hold all the leverage here because of it.   So it's not about the team not wanting him back because of his play, or because of his injuries, or anything else like that. It's simply because they don't HAVE to decide right now.   So why should they? Unless they were 100% sold, there's no reason for them to decide right now. Give themselves every last bit of information on him, which will include this upcoming season, and then decide based on ALL of the possible information. That's just smart business.   Something I, being new to the Colts, am coming to be quite impressed with in Ballard and this staff. Especially after following the traveling circus sideshow I've followed the last 15 years.
    • I think there's a reason for that.  Any coach that "tells it straight" doesn't last long in the NFL.   It's a PR thing.  Telling reporters that "you think you know, but you don't know", or "here's your IQ, buddy, zero", or "you play to win the game... HELLO?!?" usually ends up being one of the last things said as a head coach in the NFL.  Why do you think Belichick is so damn boring in his press conferences/interviews?!?  He gives the media/opponent absolutely zero when it comes to bulletin-board material for a very good reason...     As far as Kelly:  none of us know how he truly is behind the scenes.  For all we know, he's as talented as Michael Vick.  But when it comes to everything a franchise QB has to be, he might be closer to Ryan Leaf than Peyton Manning.
