It's up there, Lions game or GB still some of my favorites.

Those were fun but team namely the defense didn't play nearly as well as they did today.  I am talking purely from a performance stand point.  The Colts destroyed the 49ers in every phase of the game today.

OK, Pep is doing better, he only had HALF a dozen stupid play calls for the game situation today.

Come on are you a fan or what. We've just won a game as massive under dogs by playing them off their own field. For once can't you just enjoy it the feeling and stop nit picking. There is plenty of time for that after, for now can't you just smile. :)

I am a TOTAL Colts fan of several decades and I am overjoyed by the BIG win.

Indeed it was a very nearly complete game...I'd say it was perfect if luck would have had at least 1 TD but I was DANG proud of our defense for the first time in a long time. I expected to have far more trouble with the Niners but we contained very well today.

On the other hand the redskins and giants both appear to be in serious trouble...but the giants are in the worst of trouble of the two.

Hoping Tennessee would have lost today but hey we are in a tie in the division.

HOWEVER....I think the game that will say the most about our team will be the next week against the jags...if we spank the jags (as we should and like Seattle did today) then I will believe we are heading in the right direction. Can't wait to see Richardson out next game with some more time to acclimate and learn the offense.

Feeling proud of our team today though! Way to go team and congrats to all us Colts fans!

A very entertaining game Sunday afternoon upsetting the NFC Champions San Francisco 49ers on the road, Colts Nation!!!!!  :D     Seems the 49ers were also favored to win since the Colts just played a road game at Candlestick Park.   ;)  Andrew Luck, and the Colts offense, defense, and special teams kept the 49ers in check, especially the turnovers by the Colts. New Colts RB Trent Richardson even travelled, suited up,  played,  game ready, and even contributed  on the field, rushing 35 yards in 13 carries, averaging 2.7 yards. 

 

Luck also outrushed the 49ers Colin Kaepernick  4 carries for 24 yards compared to Kaepernick's 7-20. Another footnote is with Sunday's victory, the Colts lead the all-time series record with 25 wins, and 18 losses.

 

Colts play another road game next Sunday as they play their AFC South rivals Jacksonville Jaguars, where they played up in the Pacific Northwest, and lost to another NFC West opponent Seattle Seahawks, 45-17 at CenturyLink Field Sunday afternoon.  Jaguars are 0-3 in the season, but just like the 49ers, are preparing and want to upset our Colts at EverBankField.  After three of the season, both the Colts and Texans are tied for first place in the AFC South Division.  Ravens routed the Texans 30-9 giving their first loss of their season at Baltimore, and Texans are hosting the Seattle Seahawks at the same time as the Colts @ Jaguars game next Sunday.

 

Hopefully the Colts players, with the leadership on the field and sidelines by both Andrew Luck and Head Coach Chuck Pagano, will also try to prevent that, and continue on to win their third regular season game in 2013.  

 

Let's all as Colts fans enjoy the victory this week over the 49ers, and I'll see all of you here on the board and thanks for participating!  Until next Sunday, have a great week all of you, and  GO COLTS!!!!!      ;)   :coltslogo:       :thmsup:  :rock::excited:   :td:  :coltshelmet:  :blueshoe:   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:   :D

    • Ballard is a better talent evaluator (at least at most positions). He’s clearly the smarter and better GM in that regard (how much better is subjective but it’s a noticeable amount). I also think he has had far more resources too though.   But I think the argument you are making is how much does that matter without the results? And when does it become about the results?  But if you are looking for an objective comparison between the two...you likely won’t find it on a Colts discussion forum. It’s not a valid comp to make anyways imo...but it doesn’t matter. The way so many people vilify Grigs and deify Ballard now has made it too polarizing of a topic. And for so many...Grigs is now the villain and Ballard the hero no matter what happens.   Everyone is entitled their own opinion though. I just don’t think Ballard is as great as most think and that Grigs was as bad as most think. Or to put it another way...Ballard gets too much credit and Grigs not enough.   And anyways, I choose to look back on the Grigs/Luck era fondly. It was a very exciting time to be a Colts fans...playoff football, active FA periods, SB hype. Luck getting hurt when he did was a very unfortunate turn of events, but % happens.        
    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
