The Patriots pre-game thread -- Week 6 (merge)

Recommended Posts

How nice is it getting 10 days for our guys to heal up and get ready for the Pats? Especially after getting a hard fought win in Houston with Hasslebeck starting. 

 

Also, very impressed with two guys in particular not named Andre Johnson or Frank Gore.

 

Joe Reitz and Henry Anderson.

 

Reitz did a good job against Watt. I don't think anyone would have given him a chance before tonight. Anderson is really panning out well.

Lets rest up and get ready for action! Hopefully Vontae gets healthy and Toler gets more practice time. Coverage is going to have to be great with the lack of pass rush the team is showing. I'm excited to see the improved running game though. They aren't running for 200 this time!!

It is a huge deal to get 10 days. That's the least effective that I can ever remember seeing JJ Watt.I just couldn't believe this was our o-line. Great job by them! Key to offense tonight was the balance. That last pass to TY was as gutsy of a call as you will see.

Because we have no way of stopping them with pass defense or pass rushing . it will be 6 plays and touchdown every time he gets the ball. Then we will move slowly down the field trying to catch up for TB...

Toler ,Davis ,Butler played their Worse game tonight this year. I think Davis was just as bad as any rookie cb we've had back there.

Cry baby, it's a lesson on football if nothing else. This team needs these experiences, maybe it could even be fun to watch?

No Crying just the way I see it . And I do enjoy watching . and hope it won't be the truth . But maybe I'm wrong and Davis and or Toler are still hurting . I don't know . But at least we won. I'm Happy about the for sure.

Well if things ARE going well for us, don't hit Brady. After the way tonight went, maybe we don't want any piece of Garopolo.

haha

This game will weigh on whether Jim cleans house at years end (IMHO).

Close game loss and all is well going forward, lose 50-10 type thing and I think the firing talk will get louder for a number of folks in the organization.

Everyone one is entitled to see their team the way they want. Whether it be to predict a loss to distance yourself from that team when you have doubts, or to stand up and put your name on the line along with that team and win with them...or lose with them.

 

Personally, I choose to cast my vote that we will beat the Patriots. I would rather be wrong in a loss...than be correct in a loss. Believing against the odds brings pride before the event,  and either dissapointment or magnificent celebration after. Not believing brings safety and  disconnected distancing before the event, and either empty vindication or weak celebration after. May you have peace with your path.

I root for the Colts no matter what or who they play ... win or lose Still a fan... Perhaps I didn't word my original post correctly . It was a bit of satire . If we can work on the defense I do think we have a chance. But Brady is no Hoyer.. Anyway they won and I'm happy for that and can't wait to see how Luck handles the Offense who seems to have shaped up quite a bit.... ...

They have 10 days to rest, they will be fine. Tolers hungover is understandable. He missed most of preseason and all 4 games of the season. Hes not gonna come back in tip top shape but they should have switched him out more.

Davis was banged up, it's Tolers first game back.  That being said they have a monumental challenge ahead of them.  They can play a lot better and hopefully they will.

That's a good description there. When you are watching a game with the intent of winning it is more exciting when they do pull out a win than the other way around.

Do some fans believe that players trust in their doubts over their instincts or gameday preparations?

It's the Patriots, big whoop. They happen to be undefeated and present a challenge, but its one that should be embraced. Not a challenge where we tuck our tails between our legs, heads hung low without any fight. These types of fans in general who automatically assume a loss have already been defeated.

I wonder if that's how they operate with the rest of their life..not my business.

I think Vontae was playing hurt.  He's never looked that bad.  He was taking their #2 until Toler was getting scorched too much but when he tried it was even worse.  Hopefully he feels better before the game.

Mods, can you merge all the Patriots are going to destroy the Colts 943-0 threads into one mega thread? You know kind of like the Everything Trent Richardson thread of last year. It would be very much appreciated, thanks for your consideration.

Between now and next Sunday Colts have to find a pass rush.  

 

Our run defense seems to have improved so hopefully we won't be seeing Blount go for 200 and 4 TD's on us this year.  But if they can't find a pass rush then Brady will just pick the defense apart.

Colts need to go into the Pats game with this mindset:

 

 

I envision this..the Colts run out onto the field during introductions vs the Pats like robots, each and every player yelling "I`m mad as hell and I`m not going to take this anymore"! Then again after every defensive tackle for a 3 yard loss and every TD scored..Colts win 84-0 with Adam V kicking an "insurance FG" as time expires..coz "theyre mad as hell and not going to take this anymore"! Then I woke up.. :realitycheck:

The media will be talking all week about how the Patriots will obliterate the Colts and continue to be our daddy of the NFL. I'm not saying we're going to lose and I'm not going to say we're going to win. I do think many will be wrong and this game will be a lot closer than expected. Brady and Belichick would love to run up the score 63-10, if they could manage it. I have no doubt about them looking to do just that. I just don't think it's going to be the absolute slaughter that some think it will be. I actually expect it to fun for both Pats and Colts fans.

This thread and others like it after a really good win boggle the mind.  The eternal pessimism that runs through this board at times is amazing to me.

 

1. It is a long season with ebbs and flows.  My advice - just enjoy the win.  Look at where this team is now compared to where they were less than 2 weeks ago going into the 4th quarter of Titans game.

 

2. They may actually be finding their identity as an offense and learning to play with the talent they have.  I would hope the team is better in October than they are in December

 

3. It is clearly a flawed team, maybe, likely fatally so.  But - who cares?  Enjoy today and worry about tomorrow when it comes.  And today is a good day to be a Colts fan.

Pagano says he's supremely confident about playing the Pats.  He also was supremely confident that Luck would play both games.  Translation - Pagano is scared as hell!

I believe the last 'fun' Patriots-Colts match-up was the "4th and 2" game.  :^)  Hasn't been much fun since, has it?

This pat fan babble about judgement and karma is beyond annoying at this point. I hope we get healthy and carve up their porous secondary.

I guess I wonder how much due diligence will the Pats do? Will they just line up and try to run thru the Colts again since it's worked so well? (frankly I hope so). Or will BB do his thing, make a fresh game plan and out coach our staff again? I would love to see what would happen if we moved Andrew all around (Len Dawson style) and made the Pats have to find and chase him.

I have to agree, would love to see the colts beat the pats worst than anything but the pats will slaughter the colts.

    • Lamar is an elite runner and was taught how to pass between his first and second season. He's extremely young, and a big reason he doesn't pass too much is because the Ravens are a great run team and he runs. However, Lamar is almost always good for 200-250 yards and 3 tds. That's really important when you can get the ball in the end zone, run it in the end zone, and the rbs are running it in the end zone. He's like a tebow on steroids that can play football.
    • I would take a healthy Luck on this team as well. We have a great team, so I think he could do something. Doesn't mean he's not overrated. He's not even the best QB in his draft class. Luck is just like any other QB that can't carry a team on his back. He's not special, and he has baggage. However, we could literally use any above average QB now and have a chance at a SB. Luck just slightly increases our chances at this point. Ballard already did the work by putting the complete team together. 
    • I dont understand why you would take Lamar over Andrew wheb Lamar isn't even a proven passer. Sure he can run and avoid pressure. But can he pass at an elite level?
    • Yeah Luck did quit on us but he was not over rated.  No knock on Rivers but I wish we had a healthy Luck on this team right now. Sorry, saying he was over rated is pure horse dung. 
    • Well first, I wouldn't play on a football team because I don't like to depend on others. I'm a control freak. Second, I have already said plenty of no1 overall QBs don't win the SB early in their careers. My issue with Luck is how uncompetitive and easily shut down he is Vs the Pats, and the fact that he quit on the team when things finally started getting good with Ballard. He is completely overrated and had little passion for the game. When you're the best prospect since Elway, when does some of the responsiblity go on you to win games? Why does he need a perfect team to win a SB or beat the Pats? Even if the team wasn't good enough and he was outmatched, he quit when he had the tools to win. That erases any credibility that he could of won with better talent. We have better talent now, and Luck wanted nothing to do with us.
