I told YOU


Recommended Posts

I was one of the people saying that we won't win this game.  I still think we went against huge odds today and beat a great niners team that will make a deep playoff run.  I'm not quite sure how, but our defense played amazing in the second half as we didn't let them score.  Our offense had control of the tempo.  Great play calling and execution, through and through.

 

Now that we beat the defending NFC champs, I expect a whole lot more from our incredibly resilient group of guys.  I always love beating teams with fair weather fans.  Not sure if you paid attention to the seats with less than 10 to go in the game, there was hardly anyone there.

Dinner is served

I'll gladly dine on that!    A little salt and pepper and maybe some garlic seasoning!

 

I didn't think we'd win today......   always glad to be wrong when I don't think my favorite team will win....    Always!!

 

Wonder if our friend who said a week ago that we got rid of the wrong coach and should've let Pagano go will also man-up and admit he's wrong....?

 

But, I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen!!

 

Go Colts!!

NOBODY seriously expected INDY to win today.    Many, like me thought it was possible.    To just outright say "indy will win, they are simply better"     Would have been just talk.

 

The bottom line is ...   The Colts were VERY IMPRESSIVE today.      Us fans have not seen "this" team up until today.

 

When T Pryor and Ryan Tannehill burn your D up one is not so giddy about going to SF AFTER THEY GOT BLOWN OUT.

 

Chill out all you geniuses.          It's the NFL...  

 

I will talk this squad up to NO END if they go to JAX and BLOW THEM OUT OF THE WATER....    But for some reason...    I think this might be close....  er ..  than MANY think.

Yep.  JAX always plays tough against us.  In addition, it seems like every year we play them when our confidence is riding high and people are want to give us the easy victory.  Then it's a struggle and those people are all, "WTH?!  I thought we were better than this!" 

 

Happens every year.  That said, JAX is in TROUBLE right now.  Hard to not dream of a great victory.

 

Must Temper Expectations!

I was full of hope. I really thought it would be a close game. 3 points  our way due to the familiarity the coaching staffs had with each other.  My wife predicted 2 days ago we would win by 16 and I laughed at her. But I NEVER bet against the colts.   We needed this game for confidence reasons after losing to an average team at best last week. 10-3 the rest of the regular season.   The worst part of eating crow is when it's to your wife. :thmup:

Are you always so Negative? The dolphins are 3-0 and have beaten Atlanta, You need to learn how to give credit where credit is due... They may not end up the season in the play-offs but as of right now they are good, and eat some Humble pie will ya!

I did notice quite a few blue jerseys in the stands at Candlestick.

A message was definitely sent - these are no longer Peyton's Colts - in style or in attitude.  We are achieving balance on offense and playing solid D.  A fact lost in all this is that through 3 games, we've forced 5 turnovers and have only committed one and our discipline is showing as we've only been penalized 7 times so far this season.  Most of the forum complainers fail to realize that we are a very well-coached team.

 

Before the season, I had us at 2-1 at this point...it's just that the Phins and 49ers games were swapped.  Now we have an important divisional matchup on the road against the Jags.  Take care of business and we'll be 3-1 through the season's 1st quarter.

    • This sums it up for me. Ballard has done a great job bringing in “star” power. He is a very good GM.  Now his players are stepping into prominent roles at key positions.  A lot of resources have been used on the d-line and secondary and they have been developing the past few years. We are about to see if he is a great GM. 
    • My worry for this defense - pass defense. We were bottom 10 pass-coverage unit last year and we are returning the same unit + Marvell Tell. We were bottom 10 pass-rush unit in the league last year and we replaced our vet starters with youth that has a lot to prove. None of the EDGE defenders on this roster have been starters in the NFL and we are relying a ton on a rookie to man up the right side.    I guess the hope comes from where the worry comes - the youth. It's possible our young DBs and pass-rushers take steps forward and improve our pass-defense in general.
    • These are the kinds of dumb posts you get over at Youtube. I was reading the gameday thread of Cubs and Reds. Cubs fans were enjoying the moment with their posts and a Reds fan said we are in 2nd place and you guys haven't done anything since 2016. I about fell out of my chair here at work. "Haven't done anything since 2016", that is comical. By that logic the Reds haven't done anything since 1990. Cards haven't even won a WS since 2011. The Cubs just won the Division last year. Reds are 1.5 games ahead of the Cubs and we are in sell mode , it isn't like the Reds are 10 games ahead. By the way I like the Reds but some fans in general ruin it. Some people are so jealous over the Cubs being great over the last 6 years that it is comical. Brewers fans can put a zipper on it period until they win a WS, until then they are irrelevant to any kind of greatness discussion. I just ignore their hate because it isn't worth my time, they are the worst  . 
    • I just seen Javy's walk off. Don't poke the bear of a Champion is all I can say - As Homer would say that Garrett character had it coming  
    • I think many understand why Luck retired but many will agree it was just the timing of it. He had everyone believing he was going to play in 2019. He should've just made announcement soon after losing to KC in the playoffs. That would've been before the draft. A simple, I talked it over with my wife and I am just in too much pain play anymore. That would've been good enough for everyone IMO.    One thing too that nobody mentions is he replaced a top 3 QB of all-time and the expectations coming out of college for Luck was, he will be close to what Manning was. So of course a lot of people were upset and disappointed when he stepped away. We expected a SB win from Luck as fans.
