Colts can set history Sunday.


Recommended Posts

You know, it's easy to laugh at the AFC South, but at least our division has two teams that will finish over .500. Our cousins in the NFC should be on the receiving end of all these jeers.

 

The South will rise again!

I agree.  Is the AFC East that good?  Tannehill is inconsistent, the Bills don't have a QB, and the Jets are as dysfunctional as they come.  The AFC North, to me, isn't super competitive; it just has 4 teams that are good, but not very good.

Wasn't history set last week when we rushed for 1 yard? Gotta at least be in the top 5 for that performance

And then Luck needs 100 something yards to break the franchise record for most passing yards in a season which he should get

We were a good 54 yards shy of that record.

I wonder if a third 11-5 season in a row would be close to the record for having the same record in consecutive years.

Wouldn't surprise me. They make a record outta anything now.

Probably Luck will break the AFC South record for most division titles by a Beard having QB

That's better than the record I was thinking of.  I was afraid that the record they would set would be the most points given up in 2 games, the lowest QB rating over 4 games, the highest completion percentage allowed over two games, and the lowest rushing total for two games....

 

I'll go with the OP's record, even though the ones listed above are possible too.

Only you would think like that. I am taking odds that your fingers would fall off if you had anything positive to type.

Wow man, whats your deal? A little uncalled for...

Not a fan of the 'home alone' movie series, huh? Watch one and two and you will get the reference. It was made in jest, not aggression.

That being said, I can see how it would be misconstrued as not everyone makes the link between Christmas and movies that have to do with it (my mind works in mysterious ways) and I apologize to anyone whom I may have offended.

That's a good point. Mr. Moo.

33-15 for a new QB might have been matched.

But has a No.1 overall choice (which meant he was joining a bad team) ever led his team to 3 playoff berths in his first three years?

Certainly not.

..and getting hit as often as he has/..he's never missed a game.

My memory is bad..Has Luck ever been knocked out for even one play in 3 years?

Looking back..I cant believe what the Colts have done....33-15 in 3 years. Far better than I even hoped for

    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
