Week 6: Score Predictions


Recommended Posts

Going with my delusional heart and hoping to high heaven:

 

Colts 45

Patriots 44

 

An exciting and high scoring game, where Gore and Bradshaw combine for nearly 300 total yards on the ground. Brady throws for 450 yards and a plethora of touchdowns but we somehow miraculously keep up and score late to win the game.

Colts - 31

Patriots - 21

 

The Colts have worked out a system to coordinate play call signals without using the radio helmet (which was compromised by the Patriots sometime last year).  It'll be late in the first quarter before BB realizes he's been duped, and the Colts will have already built a 10 point lead.  The Colts will continue to do well in the suddenly fair fight, and then late in the game BB figures out how to steal the new signals and mbrings the game back within 10 points.  Lock of the Game: Brady has a tantrum and yells obscenities at the refs when things don't go his way.

Pats 99

Colts 0.

 

Tom Brady throws for 512 yards... in the first half. With 32 seconds remaining and the Pats up by 91 , Brady pulls down pants and moons the Colt bench. The 15 yard penalty puts the ball at the 12 and he proceeds to throw his 14 TD pass of the day. The 2 point conversion is good and the scoring finally comes to an end as the onside kick bounces out of bounds.

It's to bad they didn't hit 100, that should be free hot dogs or something haha

I'm a huge Colts fan, but unfortunately a realist as well. I think the Pats are going to put up a 50 burger on us. We had a extremely hard time keeping Blake Bortols in check, I can only imagine what Brady is going to due to us. Game will be over by the start of the second quarter.

Pats-52

Colts-21 (7 of those points will be garbage towards the end)

The more I think about it.........

 

There is a possibility I just mulling over.  Emotions,...NE's could hurt them, and Indy fans' could help the Colts.

 

No question, Brady will try to burn Indy often and as much as possible, He'll want to score on EVERY possession.  It may even lead him into bad decisions.  

 

Indy fans are going to make it nearly IMPOSSIBLE for Brady to make his normal at the line adjustments, guaranteed it will be louder than it has ever been in Lucus Oil Stadium.

 

Indy will be methodical, Expect a lot of Dorsett this game since Montcrief was shut out 1v1 against NE.  Dorsett will be in to keep the big play factor alive when B.B. doubles T.Y. again to keep him out.

 

The Gore/Bradshaw run combo will be absolutely devastating vrs Pats horrid run defense.  This will make NE bring in 8 in the box to stop it,...and Dorsett (as explained above) will capitalize on that.

 

Colts could get early turnovers (due to explanations of Brady and the noise above), and build a 2 td lead in the first quarter, making NE one dimensional.

 

This game very well could be a blow-out as everyone is predicting,...but it also could be a blow out the opposite way.....

I hope we can win, but as a team we aren't on the Pats level yet....we can get there this year (Sunday night would be a nice time to arrive) but given what we have seen this year to date I think we will get throttled. My only hope is we come out uninjured and we show improvement in moving toward where the Pats currently are....If I don't have to watch the final second tick off the clock thinking to myself, "whelp Hugh Thornton again led the team in tackles...No one in a Colts Jersey could confirm they saw Brady at the stadium....and the defense play what looks like prevent defense on every pass play......that's a start. "  I want to see improvement, and if we could make a star wars leap in improvement we could win, but I just don't think we can go that far that fast.......

You have a better chance at starting for quarterback on Sunday then a blowout for the colts happening.

I'm going to adjust my original score of 63-13, Pats, with Brady breaking the record for TD passes in a game.

The Colts impressed me with the run game against Houston. They also impressed me with the way they manhandled the Houston Frontline.

I think the Colts are much more competitive this game. I think we get a good run game against the Patriots and manage the clock. I also don't see New England having the kind of success running the ball they have enjoyed in past games against the Colts.

34-23 Patriots, with a late touchdown to pull away. Could be an enjoyable game

    • Ballard is a better talent evaluator (at least at most positions). He’s clearly the smarter and better GM in that regard (how much better is subjective but it’s a noticeable amount). I also think he has had far more resources too though.   But I think the argument you are making is how much does that matter without the results? And when does it become about the results?  But if you are looking for an objective comparison between the two...you likely won’t find it on a Colts discussion forum. It’s not a valid comp to make anyways imo...but it doesn’t matter. The way so many people vilify Grigs and deify Ballard now has made it too polarizing of a topic. And for so many...Grigs is now the villain and Ballard the hero no matter what happens.   Everyone is entitled their own opinion though. I just don’t think Ballard is as great as most think and that Grigs was as bad as most think. Or to put it another way...Ballard gets too much credit and Grigs not enough.   And anyways, I choose to look back on the Grigs/Luck era fondly. It was a very exciting time to be a Colts fans...playoff football, active FA periods, SB hype. Luck getting hurt when he did was a very unfortunate turn of events, but % happens.        
    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
