Colts vs Patriots OFFICIAL Mega Thread

Who you got?

 

So much depends on which D shows up in that game. I am not at all scared of NE's defense. Luck and the boys have finally found a rhythm. Our defense is the biggest question mark from this point on in these playoffs. Luck should clean up his play as well. He played one of his worst halfs all season.

Colts all the way! Hilton is a legit #1. Brazill, Rogers, Fleener, and Whalen are also doing a nice job of taking pressure off of Hilton, and our defense can play well when they are on their game, see the 2nd half for proof

Having a friend as a backup center for the Patriots, im going to still have to cheer for my team. Although he can get me tickets but too cold over there.

 

Im all out of ideas of how to beat them. What do you think is the plan?

When we play the Chiefs in the playoffs we go to at least the AFCCG.

 

 

in the pattern I trust.

If your friend is any good, tell him I it's warmer in the dome!

I think we match up pretty well against them. Brady is awesome and has seen everything. It's going to be a great game.

Well, I think it's great we get to go after Patriots this year.  Missed them during the regular season.  Hope Landry is OK after the concussion.  It's rare to return after one week.  We'll need his presence.

The secondary will have to play well on Amendola and Edleman. If we can disrupt their slant and short pass game we can limit Brady

 

On offense, just keep doing what were doing but without the costly turnovers. I love how our offense has played of late and NE's defense is nothing special especially with numerous injuries. 

 

Honestly, give the ball to Trent 1 or 2 times in the 1st quarter and if he doesn't run for >3 yards bench him the rest of the way like last game. I hate to say it, but this year is wasted for him.

I actually feel pretty good about playing the Pats. No Gronk makes a BIG deference I how we defend the pass.

I like the Colts in a close one.

Of course I had no faith that we'd beat KC, so my barometer is off.

Our power run game might actually work against the Patriots to keep Brady off the field with their injuries in the middle with Wilfork and Mayo on IR, IMO.

 

The key is always to stop/limit Brady and play the whole 60 minutes, force tipped balls and incompletions. Teams that have been able to intercept or stall Brady have been able to tip his balls (Colts in Foxboro in 2006 regular season, JPP of Giants in SB 46 to limit Brady in red zone, Ravens in 2012 AFCCG).

Niners - Seattle - Denver - KC - KC pt. 2 - New England - Denver pt. 2 - NFC champ

Colts. New England and their fans will understimate us. Their fans will probably point to the game last season, but this is a completely different Colts team, and NE has so many injuries to key players, so the game will be close this time. They'll focus on TY thus leaving room for big plays elsewhere. I expect a big game from Fleener, Brown and Rogers. They dont have Gronk, which is huge, but they will still score a lot of points with Brady leading them. I feel like we can beat them in a shoot out though.

Dont forget Packers and Rodgers. Although that was last year, but still a team with an elite QB.

I feel good about it. The only thing I worry about is Vontae being healthy. We also have to come up with a game plan for Shane Vereen in the passing game.

After what we just pulled off, I can't pick against us. Not saying the pats can't win, but seriously...until the game is over, we can come back and win at any time.

This isn't the Patriots team of last year. They are beat up and decimated by injuries. Edelman has been the only consistent receiver. Then again, Brady is always dangerous in the playoffs. Whatever happens though, I'm just going to enjoy the ride.

Its perfect that we have to play new england, as we then will host the AFC Championship game against San Diego :)

 

We lost last time at Foxboro, but last year they had, Welker, Hernandez, Wilfork and an overall better team than us.

Luck will beat new england, and I hope chargers beat Denver again, so the AFC Champ game will be at Lucas Oil Stadium

I dont know which is harder....Denver in Denver, or the Chargers anywhere. No, I am not getting ahead of myself, just responding to the thought that we would get a W in NE.

 

Chargers scare me more than any other team.
