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

Recommended Posts

I have hopes of stopping their run D but I'm not totally worried about that. The zone coverage is putrid. Wouldn't mind to see it go by next weekend.

How are we only on page 3? :)

It's called walking away from the drama :drama:  before it  begins.

You do understand the game plan was to limit foster right? Not all games are game planned equally

Oh ok that's why the DB's were burned and had blown coverages. Makes sense. I understand game planning and also adjustments

Some Indianapolis Colts fans are about to do something really dumb — perhaps wasting a lot of money in the process — in hopes of rattling quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. They are going to fly a giant blimp around Lucas Oil stadium with the "#DeflateThisBrady". 

 

​I for one am not onboard with this plan.

 

1. Lucas Oil Stadium is a dome stadium....who knows if it will be open or not. Brady will have a hard time seeing that if the stadium is closed

2. Pats have hung at least 42 points on the Colts each of the last four times they’ve played, and that New England has outscored Indianapolis 189-73 in those games. What if Tom and the hoodie got so * that they decide to run up the score even more intense than before...I don't want to see a score of 70-21 beatdown. 

 

On the bright side, this game is probably the most hype up game for the Colts this season. I am pump for this!!!! What are y'all thoughts? I know Colts fans are going to be divided on this matter.

I can't wait until this game is over and the days after it and then we can move onto the next opponent.

 

Unless somehow we won in a miracle then we can have a forum conga line.

I will be starting Brady at QB for my fantasy team next week. 

 

If our secondary is forced to play pillow soft zone again, Brady will be leading my fantasy team to a resounding victory.

 

All that said, I think KL, D. Parry, and Henry A. will bring some nastiness in the trenches.  Holding the Pats to under 100 rushing yards would be a phenomenal achievement, and something to build on, irrespective of the game's outcome.

 

If the Colts D can stop the run, that will bode well for the playoffs.  By then, the secondary could be back at full strength and playing the press man coverage that suits our DBs the best.

The wife (from LA) has insisted that we go on a two week trip to New England to see the sites and foliage. I actually think we will be in Boston on the 18th. I will proudly be wearing my Pat McAfee jersey at whatever sports bar I can find for the game.

 

If you don't hear from me again it's been an honor being part of the Colts fan family.

 

We depart on Monday, wish me luck....and tell Nadine I love her.

They may not beat us as bad as some think. We are playing a bit better than we were in weeks 1 and 2. Hopefully Andrew is back as well. At least we do know now we have a decent backup if Andrew cant go in any game. I would take Hass over either Houston QB or over the Jags QB. Regarding the Deflategate blimp, I don't have a problem with it. The Pats do not need any extra motivation at this point anyway. They already want to destroy us. If the weather is nice, we may have the roof open.

It's almost time! I've had this one marked on my calendar since the schedule first came out. I only hope the Patriots don't overlook Dallas on Sunday, before getting to you guys. This very well could be the highest rated regular season game in NFL history. So much backstory...

 

I'll come back next week and really get into it with you guys. You seem to have bounced back from what could have been a devastating start to the season. I would have preferred you guys undefeated for our matchup, but oh well.

 

One thing is certain, no matter the outcome, this game will be much talked about on that Monday morning.

It's not happening but if it did I couldn't care less. Who cares how someone want's to spent their money? There is a lot more money spent on fans playing fantasy football, betting and fandom things than what a blimp would cost to rent. Keep in mind that 'fan' is short for fanatic and there everywhere. haha

Guys... did you see what Buffalo fans did.. with those dumb billboards... Please, don't be *those* fans. Their team store even was selling air pumps. Needless to say, they looked very stupid come Monday morning.

 

It's one thing to lose, it's another to lose looking stupid. Do you guys really want to bring up deflategate during that week? I mean, this "vengeance" tour Brady and The Patriots are on is somewhat, loosely, related to events of last year. Why nudge the giant any more?

 

There is no way you can even remotely talk as much smack as The Bills did a couple weeks back. That's not possible. But flying blimps over potentially closed roofs... that would be the dumbest thing so far this year.

He already has been publicly embarrassed... when he only threw 1 TD in the first half of last season's AFCCG... with under-inflated footballs. He easily should have had 3!!!

You do know that when you taunt, you need to not look foolish and come out and beat us. Then, the taunting is swagger, rather than mere foolishness.

In general we have classy fans. I have been to a lot of games in my years and have been to a couple of Pats games as well. I was at the 2009 game when we won 35-34 on Wayne's catch and sat next to a group of Pats fans. They had their Brady jersey's on and didn't get messed with all night. We typically aren't rude and boisterous. Pretty laid back fan base in all.

Yeah, I never take anything out on fans. As a true Patriots fan, I respect anyone who is a true fan of any team, even the ones I dislike or even hate. I don't hate the Colts, just dislike them, for obvious reasons. But I can't take anything away from someone who is true to their team. I can disagree and talk smack back and forth, but I have to respect anyone who sticks by their team.

Most of us agree with you and have moved on from deflate gate drama outside the occasional forum joke.

 

But, mods here have been locking any deflate topics for a while now.

 

I can't speak for everyone but I absolutely do not want this game to be centered around the deflate thing at all. Maybe some are still into the drama but I am not.

 

Keep in mind it won't just be us as fans to sometimes blame. The media WILL most likely bring it all up for us instead and get people talking on purpose.

 

We also can't help it if fans we don't even know who are Colts fans do parade it all around somewhere.

Yeah I am definitely a true Colts fan, have been since 1984. Some Colts fans are just Manning fans or just like certain players which is fine too. I still am a fan of Manning and like to see him do well but the Colts always come first. 2011 was a really rough season to watch but it landed us Andrew. Regarding the Pats, you guys always look like a powerhouse it seems. Even in 2008 with Cassel you won 11.

I agree I am over it and would love not to hear 1 word about it all week but the media will dwell on it as usual. Pats would've beat us anyway without the deflated balls.

What we need is our defense to taunt Brady instead. If they can learn how that would be great.

By the way my Deflategate finalist banner is just out of humor. Had to be done but I am sick of hearing about it in the news. Tommy got it overturned and it is what it is now. The only thing I care about is this upcoming game.

Yeah I'm not for this at all.  Brady will probably throw for 400 yards on this D if they can manage to stop the run.  The team needs to improve substantially within the next 9-10 days. 

 

I guess if you look at it from an overall standpoint, Brady is going to be determined to dominate the Colts.  This probably won't affect him at all.  This next streak of games is going to be incredibly difficult for this team if they don't improve drastically soon.  That being said I still expect the playoffs for the Colts.

That and/or put Brady on his backside a dozen times. (yeah, I know ...somewhere over the rainbow) But, I'd pay good money to see it.

Know any bars in Boston a traveling Colts fan could go to, to watch the game, without fear of physical violence?

    • It sounds like Collins was trying to surround himself with better support prior to joining Indy, but yes, it's great that we've got enough high-character guys on this team who can help keep him clean.  https://www.colts.com/news/jalen-collins-grateful-for-the-opportunity-with-colts   I tend to agree with you regarding who Ballard considers 'bad apples.'  Kelly was dismissed from Clemson because he snapped at coaches after being benched as a sophomore in a Spring Game (and then got in a 'minor fender-bender' in the team's parking lot, which did not lead to any police report -- sounds like he was heated when he left and probably drove a little recklessly).  Prior to joining Clemson, Kelly did send a few tweets or social media messages suggesting he was going to come in and win the starting position right away.  He was ~17-19 years old when these incidents occurred.  Sure, they're not great, but I imagine being a very highly-touted prospect and the nephew of a HOF QB comes with quite a bit of stress, especially at that age.  Not that those were great incidents, but it doesn't necessarily make him a bad person (kind of like you eluded to, these incidents are nowhere near as serious as domestic violence or endangering a child, etc.).    When he was 21, Kelly got in a scuffle with some bouncers at a nightclub in his home town.  Again, not a great incident, but keep in mind he was 21 and was probably going through some hard times as he was being scrutinized nationally for recently being kicked off Clemson and probably had a bit too much to drink with some of his hometown friends.  Not that getting in a scuffle in a nightclub is a good thing, but there are a LOT of 21 year olds who get in scuffles when they've had too much to drink and no big deal is made of it because they're 'normal' kids, not highly touted football players with a celebrity uncle.  Of course,  being a 'star' comes with responsibility and you'd like to think kids know enough to keep themselves under the radar, but I don't think it's an incident which makes him an evil person.   Then, when he was 23-24 he left a Halloween party at Von Miller's house and stumbled into the wrong house.  He didn't steal anything from the house or attempt to injure anyone in the house, from all accounts I've read... he simply had too much to drink and went in and sat on a couch, got chased out by the husband in the house and then went and slept in his SUV.  Again, not a great incident, but I don't think it's something which makes him a terrible person.  Sounds like the kid needs to understand his limits in terms of partying a bit better, but if he wasn't an NFL football player, that charge would be a pretty common thing to read in a police blotter in a large city like that.  He needs to understand, he's going to get more scrutiny as an NFL athlete and due to his past and his ties to Jim Kelly... and it sounds as though he's gotten some counseling and is doing his best to stay away from situations like that in the future.     Ballard and his staff always seem to do their due diligence before bringing players into this team.  The fact that Reich and J. Kelly were teammates for just under a decade probably also helped Chad Kelly in this situation.  I imagine Reich has known Chad for a long time (probably since he was a toddler) and had some conversations with Jim to get assurance that Chad is trying to clean up his act.  While not all of his actions were the greatest, he doesn't seem to have done anything that would be a huge deal and make him a terrible human being if he was just an average Joe.   Jalen Collins' suspensions it sounds like were 2x for smoking weed and 2x for PEDs.  Not great decisions, but again, those aren't things that make him a terrible person.  And as @Scott Pennock said, it's easy, if he slips up again, we release him and move on (well, if he slips up for PEDs again, we won't have to deal with him, the NFL will suspend him for 2 years and by that time, he'll probably be too old to come back and compete for an NFL roster spot).  To be honest, I am more concerned with the PED use than the weed from a young man in the NFL... but I don't know all the circumstances (e.g., did he just not do his research and took a supplement on the banned list by accident (this seems to happen a lot, and in other sports you are starting to see guys winning cases by proving they accidentally took a tainted substance)? was he battling a nagging injury and took something to try to help recover faster (this also happens, e.g., Andy Pettite admitted he took PEDs several times in his career, but moreso for recovery than to enhance his performance, like being put on the 10 day -DL instead of the 60 day-DL)?  Or did he actually knowingly try to cheat by taking substances to give him a major advantage over other players (all these guys take supplements, but there are supplements which are more advantageous than others)?).  I would be more worried if this guy is actually a major cheater who felt he didn't have enough raw ability to play in this league to the point he had to take banned substances... but he already is well aware, if he screws up again, his NFL days are over.   In terms of Okerere, Ballard and others have already said numerous times that they did their due diligence about his alleged incident and talked to his coaches and others around him and found no reason not to bring the guy to Indy.     If allegations turn out to be true, I doubt Ballard would bring in a guy like Tyreek Hill.  Maybe it's just my opinion, but assaulting your spouse or your child are way more serious issues about someone's character than smoking weed, pulling a McAfee and falling into a canal, or having too much to drink and accidentally stumbling into the wrong place (especially without attacking anyone or vandalizing the place).  I, for one, am happy Ballard isn't against giving guys who have not done anything very seriously wrong another chance.  Like Ballard says "Kids make mistakes."      
    • Addai was great in pass pro, but as an overall RB give me MJD anyday.    Mack is a little low, but overall hes still in the 15-20 range IMO. If healthy he definitely moves up though. 
    • I loved the "with the next pick" series. Watched it multiple times. I'll look at the site again and see if it changes my opinion. Maybe the video series on Cain will spark my interest.
    • it was just an ugly ugly ugly game.   to me, our O was the issue. you can't punt your first four possessions and then miss a FG to end the half. then you punt your first two possessions of the 2nd, fumble on your 3rd, and punt again on your 4th. When special teams is your only score for 3Qs, it's your offense lol....   our D actually held them under their average so i can't blame them too much. we actually had more sacks and QB hits they them.   Biggest issues 1. they doubled a hobbled TY, and the rest of our WR group were mediocre to begin with 2. O play calling sucked. horrible game plan from Reich, and good one from Andy. 3. our LB's played bad...  4. we abandoned the run too early (only 14 rushes the entire game). Our YPC was pretty good. 5. weather/field
    • They had the better team and were at home. KC winning doesn't surprise me at all. This upcoming season is a different story. If you ask 99% of Houston fans were they surprised we beat them in the playoffs, they would probably say yes. I wasn't, because we had the better QB. Mahomes and Luck are pretty even regarding KC and they were at home.
