Colts 10.5 Dogs At Home


Recommended Posts

I would never bet for or against the Colts but my guess based on the play of each so far is we lose by at least that. Home field will make no difference in this event. Are there any possible players from Pitt not playing this game? Their WR's are going to flipping carve this porous secondary apart. They may throw for 500 and rush for another 100+

maybe this is why so many on injury list?so young guys will get some time, bet if we were playing k.c. list would not be so long.

If that were the case we wouldn't be trotting Kerry Collins out there for one. Look just because some fans are starting to give up on the season the team is not. They really mean it when they are 14 games left and that they expect to come back from 0-2. If they wanted to play younger guys they would the injury list has nothing to do with that. It's listed like that because the Colts are hurt, it's not like this is the first time we've seen them have a long list of hurt players.

Right because I am not running around screaming the sky is falling I must be Jim Caldwell... Also what on earth does me saying that I don't think the Colts are makig up injuries have to do with me seeing things as half full?

What are you going to tell me next that because you are saying things are bad you are being realistic?

This team has real issues. I am not aruging that. In fact I said from the start I think this team had a real shot to be 5-11 when others were talking playoffs without Peyton Manning. With that said I don't tend to jump to either extreme very rarely are things as good as fans make them out to be when things go well and very rarely are things as bad as fans make them out to be when things go bad.

Now none of that has to do with injuries and me saying that I am not buying that the Colts are making up injuries (which is highly against NFL rules) does not mean I see things as half full. It just means I don't buy that they are makingup injuries so they can play young guys. If they wanted to play young guys thy would just play young guys. I don't think this team is going to the playoffs but I am not the Colts. The Colts are pros and they aren't going to give up on the season after two games which benching your starters for youngs would be doing. That's not my view that's me telling you how the Colts are aproaching this based on everything they are saying and doing.

I do think these injuries happened this week. Diem was hurt in the game and did not return, not shocked he's on the injury report. Brackett was already out. Bullitt got hurt in the game and had to come out for a play because of it. Those are the three playes who stand a good chance to be out and you can see where all of them got hurt. As for the injuries, sounds like your normal a guy is a little dinged up and if you get a hang nail the Colts put you on the injury report. They have for years just to make sure they are covered by league rules.

I have been honest with myself, again I am not telling you my view, I am telling you how the Colts are going to aproach the season. Listen to anything they say. I take them at their word THEY believe that it's just two games and that they can still go to the playoffs. I am saying I believe that's how they honestly feel, not that I expect them to be right. If they beleive that they though they aren't going to hold out their vets in favor of younger guys in week 3.

My personal view is that this is a 5-11 football team at best without Peyton.

I think Caldwell or the new guy will start. It could be we signed the new guy for depth to back up the other two or it could be they signed him to start if Bullitt can't go. I'd say Caldwell because 1, he started in the pre-season when Bethea couldn't go, and 2, he came in when Bullitt got hurt last week. I really liked what I saw of him in the pre-season. He was second in the NFL at one point during the pre-season in tackles and seemed to have a bit of Bob Sanders in him in terms of playing in the box. Don't get me wrong I am not saying he's as good as Sanders I am just saying his style of play reminded me of Bob where as Bullitt is more of a pass coverage guy.

I will be rooting for my boys in this one. But, if I am really being honest, I take Pitt with the spread.

Sorry guys, this one is going to be ugly.

Rule of thumb..

No NFL team is more than 10-point favorite on the road..

The Steelers have score 34 points all season..

..and the Colts have a QB who's learning the offense..more every day

the Colts are desperate to win...Pitt can afford a loss..

I'd take 10 1/2 and run with it..

As to the OP...

The Colts have been phenomenal against the spread for years as a result of team consistency under Manning. If someone were to have placed money on every single Colt game for the past 5, 6, 7 yrs it would have been profittable in the gambling world.

In 2011, all good trend consistency bets are off and we are now being viewed as consistently bad. Question is how bad. I say take the Steelers and continue to bet against the Colts until they prove otherwise. See....Vegas is still lovin' us.

Ain't that many changes in the world man. Inside sources huh? lol

What are these "changes" you keep alluding to and if you don't know exactly then you can't say with any certainty that the results will be any better.

I'll gladly take you up on this bet. The Steelers won 24-0 against a team that is as bad as we are. Desperation doesn't cover for poor tackling, a qb that should be retired, a terrible offensive line and an excessively long injury list. Pittsburgh has the best defensive coordinator in the league and they will give our offensive line fits. I expect the Colts to look better and play better, but they are simply overmatched. Steelers will win 31-13.

    • 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.
