Wow,  that was ugly

 

It was a road win.......  it counted

 

But

 

Luck had a very poor game

The OL had a very poor game (See #1)

 

The blocking was horrendous

 

 

I had forgotton how bad we looked in that game

(I couldnt bring myself to watch the Pittsburgh game   :) )

Gordy had a good game...?

are you being sarcastic? Maybe he did have a good game, but just seeing him out there on the outside covering NFL receivers got me nervous. I'm glad he is no longer on the roster

No, not being sarcastic. He played reasonably well. Only gave up one catch on four targets, and had a pick.

Saw it too. It just re-confirmed for me how special Hilton is. Didn't have a catch at the half, but feasted on Haden and Skrine in the 2nd half. And he scored the game winning TD, although it was Gordy's INT that ended the game.

Seriously though, what CB can shut down T.Y.? Haden played admirably but Hilton won that battle. He tore through the LOB already. And didn't he breast Talib both times we played the Broncos last season? Or did they have Harris on him?

It seems NFL Network always chooses to replay the Colts either losing or having a bad game.

 

I've been waiting to see a replay of our game against Baltimore but they never play it.

I watched it, loved the grit our guys showed in the 4th quarter. Just goes to show, even when Luck's having an off-day (or an all-out terrible game), it still only takes 2 or 3 plays with this potent of an offense to hit a defense where it hurts, and steal a victory on the road.

 

I see Buffalo in week 1, and for that matter the Jets the following week, posing similar challenges that the Browns did in this game. Hopefully o-line play, and subsequently the run game, are improved enough to keep these great defenses honest so they can't just pin their ears back and come after Luck.

I traveled out there from Cali for that game. 30 yard line. It was intense towards the end.

I don't know what it was about that game, but it was actually one of my favorite games of the season.

 

Watching a game like that is way more intense and entertaining than watching a 44-10 blowout over the Jags or Titans. They had to fight for every yard they gained and every point that they scored in that one.

Just goes to show that it only takes 1 or 2 mistakes and TY can hurt you bad, even if you shut him down for an entire half, or even 3 quarters. You basically have to be completely flawless against him. It's also a testament to how impressive New England's secondary played him in the AFCCG.

    • Here's a link for team needs (I don't agree with all of it, but it's pretty good overall) https://thedraftnetwork.com/team-needs   It's tiered into primary, secondary, ancillary, and "don't need". Colts example below from TDN.   Colts Primary - OT, CB, WR Secondary - IDL, EDGE, LB, TE Ancillary - QB, S Don't need - IOL, RB   It's up to you if you want to follow it, and how you want to weigh need vs PBA.   IMO, the Colts needs are more like the below, which I would personally follow. And even with that, depending on BPA, I might not follow the tiers.    Colts Primary - Edge, LT Secondary - CB, WR, LB, TE, S Ancillary - IDL, IOL Don't need - , RB, QB   You'll have a set time for your pick, so only need to be on for 15 minutes at most.
    • Sold, I guess it will be obvious how to do BPA/Need?  I don't know how much of the time I can be on what with driving kids all over the place and stuff.
    • You don't really need to know a lot about CFB.  All you really need to do once you get your team is Know your team's needs (I'll post a few links with team needs) Peruse a big board or two and identify targets (I'll post a few of these too, and we'll have a thread updated real time to show what's available) Show up at your scheduled time, and make your pick from who is available. 
    • As far as the history of teams turning things around from the regular season, it happens enough years based on history that your "not too many" indicates it is uncommon based on most of our interpretation. Trust me when I say this, don't take it personal, you would not be the first person trying to cover his/her bases in an argument in this forum based on semantics and this won't be the first time you will do it either. I have had my share.     I just gave 1 year worth of examples. Patriots vs Steelers 2004, Steelers vs Colts 2005, Giants vs Patriots 2007, Ravens vs Broncos 2012, all SB winners, and there is always a few teams that DO turn around results from the regular season that end up going the distance in the playoffs (few because only 12 made the playoffs till it was changed to 14 this year). Those are just noteworthy for being SB winners. 2010 Jets vs Patriots, 2015 Broncos vs Steelers are other examples too.   Just last year, Ravens vs Titans and Browns vs Steelers (with a healthy Big Ben) adds to the examples I gave you for reversing regular season results. These are just off the top of my head. The bottom line is, it happens enough times that it is not uncommon at all that I felt the Colts had more than a puncher's chance vs the Bills.   Regardless, welcome to the forum and hope to see you post more.  
    • SOunds cool.  Don't know enough about CFB to be much more than a place holder for automatic though.  I'll be interested in the results though.
