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 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.

The Colts haven't lost the game have they? I am certain the game has not been played yet.

 

You would think the already lost by 4 TD's

 

As far as buying the sign. I say go for it. He should be publicly embarrassed.

 

He isn't

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

I don't know if it's true or not but it seems a little immature and ignorant to me. Let's just have a good football game and enjoy the AFC South ride. :thmup:

Is it anymore immature or ignorant than the money spent on betting and fantasy football? haha  :thmup:

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.

I'm all for any kind of taunting of Brady and/or the Patriots.  So yeah. As silly as this sounds. Go for it.

 

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.

That my friend is what they call a technicality. But for all intents and purposes...

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.

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

    • This is going to be a tough game for the Colts playing away, they need to up their game a bit on the defense and get after Foles or Trubisky.....Also need to utitlize Taylor more....Play calling could use some improvement....Granted the Colts played an injury plagued Jets and vying for the Trevor Lawrence sweepstake. can't take dah Bears lightly.....Close one, but Colts prevail 25-23....
    • I think this is the key.  Taylor is definitely going to be great short yard runner.  There is little doubt about this.    I don’t think he’s ever going to be a guy who can make petiole miss or find lanes when they aren’t obvious.  This is not his talent.   i don’t think he’s going to be a 3 down back in the league, but I know for sure the Colts didn’t think it today because he was out in leverage situations today when the game was still in doubt.  He is not good at changing directions or speed.  I think he would be most effective in an I or a a pistol so  he can start downhill, but that isn’t what Indy does.   We are going to need another guy I think.  Mack was that guy but now who knows.   i don’t understand why having this opinion upsets some of you guys so much but I also don’t care.
    • Overall, we were solid in all 3 phases.  Hard to be too high coming off the given it was the Jets, but it was all-in-all a good game.   Things I was pleased with: 1) We won the turnover battle 3-0 (4-0 if you consider a safety a forced TO).  Glad to see Rhodes w/ 2 INTs.   2) We had 2 TDs and a safety on D.  The last time a Colts team had 2 INTs returned for TDs in the same game was nearly 70 years ago (10/18/1950, also vs. the Jets).   3) We started off hot on O.  Yes, we took a TD to the house, then they came back and scored on us.... but we got the ball back and marched right down the field.  We've started off moving the ball every game so far, something we have struggled with mightily since the Peyton days.   4) Although TY was only targeted 3x, he caught all 3 for 52 yards and it looked like he was having fun out there again.. he looked better than week 1 or 2. 5) Leonard was all over the place again, the guy is special (we all know that, but he just keeps proving it). 6) Although Rivers made a few conservative throws (e.g., the 3rd and 10 throw to MAC in the 3rd quarter) and sacrificed yards, he didn't force anything and he threw 0 INTs.  I'll take that every day of the week, especially when we're playing with a lead and not in desperation mode. 7) Alie-Cox with the TD and a huge gain shows that he and Rivers are still developing chemistry, which is exciting and will be scary to other Ds when Doyle returns. 8) Thought our ST coverage unit was solid (EJ Speed made a heckuva play on a kickoff late in the game... of course, he got a holding on Rodgers' next return, but we have a fast ST unit). 9) We had a more balanced offensive attack than we did the previous two games and we did pretty well in both areas (run and pass).   10) Kenny Moore II (and the rest of the secondary for that matter) played well.  Moore has to be one of the best blitzing DBs in the league.  I was pleased with the play of Blackmon and Tavon Wilson in the secondary and was impressed with Wilson's tackles for loss. 11) Taylor got his YPC up to 4.5 (and Wilkins was at 4.3).  I think those guys are a solid 1-2 punch and don't really think we've skipped too much of a beat since losing Mack to the season. 12) Jacoby looked mobile in the pocket and he put more touch on 2 of his throws than I saw at all last season.  So, I think that is a good thing (ideally, we'll only see him that much when we're pulling starters b/c we have such a large lead, but he didn't look bad). 13) From what I could tell, we didn't have any key players (or any players) sustain significant injuries for the first time this year.   Things I was so-so with: 1) Blankenship... he's got plenty of leg, but missed another kick (granted he hit the upright, and it didn't matter in this game, but we can't afford to be missing makeable kicks as frequently as he has so far).  Not too worried about him, though.. he did hit 2 other kicks and 4/4 on XPs.   2) The pass rush -- we got 2 sacks and 7 QB hits... the DL was definitely disrupting Darnold most of the game, but it seemed like they were just a quarter of a second away from getting about 3-5 more sacks... it'd be really nice if they could turn 33-50% of those QB hits into actual sacks. 3) Offensive playcalling -- we didn't make any turnovers and we had a couple of very nice big chunk plays.  I like Hines, but he continued to struggle in the run game (it's almost like he's too predictable when used as a runner, but did well w/ 4 receptions for 40 yards.  Reich was definitely more conservative this game than vs. JAX, settling for FGs on fourth and short in their territory.  That said, I thought there were times when we could have been a bit more aggressive.  Overall, the O was efficient and we got the win (with 16 points assisted from our D).  I did also like we were pretty balanced on O, which we were not (heavy pass, then heavy run) in games 1 and 2.     Things to improve: 1) Time of possession.... after dominating TOS in games 1 and 2, we were almost equal to NYJ today.  I'd like to see us continue to be on the dominant end of that category moving forward, especially against mediocre teams. 2) Just some nit-picky things on individual players -- overall, I think we played well and hopefully this game gives us confidence as we get ready to take on Chicago (who is probably going to have a lot of confidence after that Foles comeback).
