Other than the fact the Green Bay is better than the Colts

 

yet we beat the packers in luck's rookie year with one of the worst makeup of a roster Ive ever seen

If we beat the Pats in the AFCCG and make the to the Super Bowl in the top-heavy AFC, even with a loss to GB, I'd consider it a good season.

 

And I'd probably be with you.    But I strongly suspect you and I would be among the very few.

 

I don't think I've seen anyone that thinks the year the Colts lost to the Saints in the SB was a good year.    Never seen a positive comment about that year.....

 

Just sayin.......

True, but our star is still very young, and we still have a large championship window. I'm just finding it hard to buy the hype that we're a SB favorite

Rothelesburger and Brady both won a SB in their rookie year and Wilson is 1-1 in SB appearances

since joining the NFL along with Luck. There is no reason why we can't start winning it all this year,

but I totally understand your post.

Brady was not a rookie when he won.   His first Super Bowl came in his 2nd season.   

 

And the reason we likely wouldn't win is not Luck....   we may not have a good enough defense to win a super bowl.

They were all carried by an elite defense. Ben was laughable in the SB

No way, we beat Green Bay in Luck's rookie year with less talent than we have now !!  We beat them once, we most certainly beat them again !!

It would depend on why we lost the SB. If it was due to a bone-heading coaching mistake (remember Seattle?) it's tar and feathers time.

haha how quickly we forget. I have to say, since it didn't involve the Colts, I forgot about that fairly quickly. It should go down as one of the biggest coaching mistakes in NFL if not all sports history. Beast Mode was slicing and dicing the Pats D and had them worn down. I still cant believe that one.

The Steelers will make the playoffs and will be a tough draw for us.

Everyone is discounting that team.

They barely made it last year due to some career games/year by Big Ben. Their schedule is much harder this year given that they go from facing the two worst divisions to two of the better ones(NFC West and AFC West). I wouldn't be surprised at all if they don't make it. I do agree that they match up well against us though.

No , the team we've overlooking here, obviously, is Denver...

Because of last year's playoff, there is a sense that 'of course' the Colts would beat them again

But when you just look at the defenses, the Broncos are loaded up....better than Baltimore or Buffalo or NE..

 

..and the old country boy is 100% again...we don't want to go back to Denver

After years of Manning in the superbowl. Id love if I'm an opposing team playing against him in the playoffs.

They have a new coaching staff so it's going to be a year or two of growing pains with them.

so both championship games are the same but the losers win this time. I just can't see the pats get the 2nd seed if Brady is out 4 games. they're gonna lose 2-3 games out of the first 4. They'll need at least a 12-4 record to get the second seed. so they can only lose 2 more games from week 4 on out. If we actually beat the pats on brady's return game they can only afford 1 loss in the next 11 games.

I just wanna get to the big game. I think IND vs. GB would be an awesome matchup. The young stud vs. probably the best in the game. I feel something special in the air this year barring major injuries. I think the D is good enough to get there, especially if Mathis is healthy. The O will be out of this world and may set records if again, everyone stays relatively healthy. I'm actually expecting a SB berth this year. Anything less will be a major disappointment.

That's assuming Brady is out, and Garoppolo can't get it done. Everything looks good when you draw it out on the chalkboard, but once the season starts, even without Brady, it wouldn't surprise me if the Pats start 3-1. Belichick will have the team ready. However, if we beat them in Oct, I can see us getting the 1st seed. The road thru Indy won't be easy, even if NE has to come back.

There would be no reason why we couldn't beat the Packers Aaron Rodgers or not.....especially on neutral grass

We beat them a year and four games after they won the Super Bowl and four games after we finished 2-12. I think we can get beat them again.

My brothers team against mine in the Superbowl. Boy would that be something!

My brother is the Jets.....you can imagine him arguing with me and my dad a decade ago over who is better Peyton or Pennington

    • Leo Nard I know he is a all pro LB and he can and will set a record for highest paid LB on any team in the NFL.  I just don’t see it with Leo Nard though.  I don’t know maybe he doesn’t get the hype like LBers in the past has example Ray Lewis, T Suggs etc..  I don’t know I think we maybe be better off trading him for like 3 First Rounders and 1 third round draft pick.  Q omg we have to resign him I guess My priorities is OLINE first and Defense second?
    • I expect Houston to get signed by draft day. Whether it's by us or another team. Interestingly enough, I believe he's our last real option at EDGE before the draft. By not signing him yet, I'm thinking Ballard has interest in an EDGE rusher. I've heard we may have some interest in Azeez Ojulari. I like him, but I believe he is more of a 3-4 LBer, and we run a 4-3, so I really don't want to draft him. Seems like it'd be a reverse Bjoern Werner or Jerry Hughes situation all over again. Hoping to get Houston back, and either go Kwity Paye in the 1st and Eichenberg in the 2nd, or trade down all the way to the 2nd and get multiple picks that way (including a future pick), and a 3rd this year as well.
    • The poster you've responded to is not being stupid, he’s being sarcastic.     He’s unimpressed with Ballard because the Colts have not won the AFC South on his watch.   The poster is not interested in being patient.  He wants to win NOW!    Sooner than that if it’s possible.  
    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.
