Colts Vs. Patriots Sunday Night Football Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Some of ya all put way to much on the beatings we gave bad teams or teams(Jags, Titans) that did not have there #1 receiver or #2...Bengals....We still have a ways to go yet before we can put ourselves up there with the likes of the Patriots, Broncos. We ae an overall good team....But we are not there yet

We can hang with/beat Denver. We're a more balanced team than they are.

 

We can pass....Denver can pass.

We can't run....Denver can't run.

Our run defense sucks....Denver's run defense is great. (But neither team can actually run, so Denver's defensive advantage is moot.)

Our pass defense (including pass rush) is so-so. Denver's pass defense is terrible when their pass rush doesn't get there. They can't cover for crap.

Our special teams are great. Denver's special teams are the worst in the NFL from top to bottom.

 

 

The thing is, there just aren't many well-rounded teams. Especially in the AFC. New England is the only one.

I just want to save you guys some time and effort and sum up not only the last hour of this thread, but the next 24 hours as well:

"WHaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!"

I didn't say the Pats weren't better. I said they're dirty and take cheap shots.

On a side note Both the D Line and O Line needs to go back to fundamentals in my opinion, Plus need to change Blocking schemes a bit

My expectations have gone down so far tonight. Lame 

I'm more worried about Bradshaw and Allen then the outcome. We need those guys.

And NE is a Gronk injury away from being incredibly beatable.

NE is not well rounded just lucky

As well they should for anyone with some sense. Colts are no where near ready yet.

Well it's not the playoffs so at least there is time to work on some things.

Al Michaels is TOTALLY off base in his comments about Wayne being a 2nd fiddle receiver. He was number one since about 2095, when he passed Harrison during Harrison's last 3 years.

Unfair comments from a guy NOT up on Colts history.

Could be worse. My college team hasn't beaten their rival since 2004.

Lucky yes. You don't win consistently for 12+ years without being pretty darn good, too. They're a complete team. The weakest link is their...well, what is New England bad at? They have a mediocre at worst run game. Even though it looked amazing against us, that's not saying much. Everything else about them is good or better.

 

Of course Brady will always get most of the credit even though nearly every team he's had has been well balanced. Such is life as a QB. The pass defense was shaky for a few years, but not nearly as bad as Patriot fans would have you believe. They gave up yards, but still generated a pants load of turnovers.

Calm down. Year 3 of a total rebuild. Still don't have all the pieces...Belichick has been the Pats GM and HC since Clinton was in office

Yeah, that's just an excuse

Andrew and Co. are about to get paid so those pieces are getting slimmer with the cold cash we're about to have to dish out.

Yeah it's going to be a "fire everyone" type atmosphere.

It's pretty simple, Colts just got man handled in the trenches by both their lines, out coached and beat by a superior team. When the Colts are playing a superior opponent, can't stop the ball or run the ball for 60 minutes this is what happens. I thought maybe they would come out a different team at the half but they came out flat.

The Pats got 14 garbage points late

This is/was not a blowout

 

It's called finishing your opponent in butt kicking fashion and stomping them out.  I wish we did it, honestly.

No

They have their faults just like everyone else

Like what?

 

NE's run game is their weakness, and even then it's not much of a weakness. A weak run game would be something like ours or Denver's. NE's is servicable.

 

NE's QB gets rattled/thrown off his game when teams beat his O-line consistently. Most teams are either too stupid or lack the personnel to do so. (Or both.)  Given that most teams can't, or don't, he shreds them to pieces from behind his wall.

 

That's about it.

They are best team in the AFC. It's pretty clear. But we will see how the playoffs go.

As we know the best team doesn't always win.

That doesn't even make any sense.

 

We got our butts kicked on the ground all game and rolled over and died. We contained NE in the air for the first half, but we stopped getting to Brady in the second half and NE stepped on our throats both on the ground AND in the air all second half.

 

If we had just kept on Brady like the first half we would have had a chance. Didn't happen that way.

The only thing it does is given the inside track for the #1 seed

    • Are we, as Colts fans, overvaluing or undervaluing Jacoby Brissett?   It probably depends on how you look at our backup QB.  If you are looking at him compared to other backup QBs around the league, you are probably undervaluing him.  I could make the argument that he is the most valuable backup in the NFL.  And I think Ballard agrees.   However, if you're looking at Jacoby as trade-bait, you might be overvaluing him.  A team trading for Jacoby would want him to be their starter.  Granted, this article is written by David Carr for NFL.com, so take it with a grain of salt, but he has at least 10 other QBs ranked ahead of Brissett for other teams to consider drafting, signing as a FA, or trading for.   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001018216/article/ten-quarterbacks-worth-pursuing-via-tradefree-agencynfl-draft   I expected to see Brissett on that list.  When I didn't, I wondered if I'm overvaluing our backup by viewing him through my blue-colored glasses...   And I think the draft-stock of the QB prospects will only increase leading up to the draft.  I just don't see a team offering Ballard enough to part ways with Jacoby at this point.
    • I'd like to see more games for a bigger sample data. Richardson's expertise is brute raw strength, which is also why he did so well in college -- his opposition was undersized. Now we're placing Trent in a development league and suddenly we're surprised he's doing well? I'm not biting yet. You put me into a game with a bunch of old ladies and I can make myself look strong, too.
    • Fort Wayne, Indiana.   1995 AFC Chamuonship game its Harbaugh is when I started to be a Colts fan.
    • Flowers as well as Dante Fowler Jr. should also be available.  I would be happy will Flowers and Robert Quinn when he is released.  Those two would be great additions.  I can see Quinn getting double digit sacks again moving back to DE. 
    • So Kaepernick did have his price?
