Can you root for the Patriots Sunday night?


Recommended Posts

Being a Colts' fan your not to root for the Patriots in any sort of way but this weekend you might have to.

If the Colt win on Sunday against Jacksonville I guess it really doesn't matter  then.

But what if the Colts lose, then they need Houston to lose to the Patriots to help with a playoff birth.

So, are you rooting for the Patriots Sunday night?

Does it even help? All that matters at this point is a division wins. Just like yesterday didn't matter to the colts or steelers unless they were going for home field advantage. Cincinatti already has the division.

 

wildcard spots are on the line so yes it does matter. not to mention we can very well be playing the steelers in the first round of the playoffs

I will not root for the Patriots because I'm confident we will beat the Texans anyway in game 15 to get our head-to-head to win the division (they couldn't beat us with Orlovsky, nah not happening at our place :)). But if I have to play on the road for the divisional round after winning the wild card game, I'd rather have the Bengals or the Broncos have the #1 seed to play on the road.

Doesn't matter.....after our * poor performance last night if the Texans beat the Pats more power to them. If they lose so be it.

Even if we were to luck out and somehow make it all the way to the AFC Championship it will inevitably go through Gillette where we will be summarily trounced again. I have no expectations at this point.

On second thought I will root for the Texans. I root for the Colts and anyone playing the patriots. If the Colts cant take care of their own business then it really don't matter. It would make me pretty joyful if the patriots would lose three in a row. That would be fantastic.

I'm counting on Colts winning, so I don't have to ponder the prospect of rooting for NE. If it comes down to it, I don't know that I can root for NE. I don't want NE to get home field advantage. Regardless of the Eagles game we just witnessed, NE's home field advantage is a big plus for them. Given the option, I'd take my chances of having a better record than Houston when all is done.

If NE doesn't get home field, they will have to play somewhere else. If the Colts are to lose an AFC Championship, I'd rather lose to anyone but NE. So, I'll be rooting for Houston and hope we take care of business going forward.

Loved reading these Posts. After reading them I am 50/50. I never root for the Pats and dislike them more than any other team but I do know a Texans loss helps us and a Pats win doesn't hurt us at this point. I always enjoy watching the Pats lose but in this case I am good either way with what happens. I really don't want to see the Pats get the #1 Seed and HFA but a Texans loss helps us out like I said. If we beat the Jags I guess it doesn't matter but what if for some reason we lose to the Jags? I don't see it but you never know. We looked pretty bad last night.

If the playoffs were held today the ranking would be #1 Bengals, #2 Bronco's, #3 Pats & #4 Colts. If I was a betting man I would take the Pats over the rest of the AFC playoff teams. If we lucked out and beat our opponents we would more then likely play the Pats in Gillette......again.....probably with the same results.

IMO, the Bronco's could take NE in Denver. They have the best D and if they can keep an average O going, they'll be tough to beat at home. Either way, unless the Colts improve, we'll be eliminated wherever we go.

Not rooting for the Thugtriots. However, wouldn't mind them beating the Texans. Puts us in the drivers seat @ Jacksonville with a win. If Houston wins, things get messy for the NorthEast spies. We need to beat the Jags, anyway. It's a win-win either way with a W by the Colts.

Nope. At this point seeing as how we aren't going to make a run in the playoffs anyways. Even with Luck coming back we have to many issues. At this point I had rather just give it to Houston and us get a top 10 draft pick to get a game changer on defense.

    • Goff isn't bad, probably above average but I would much rather get Stafford. 
    • So I’ve thought about it, and I’m at least willing to consider it as an option.   I’ve said all along that Phil knew that next year was it no matter what. So his plans for 2021 hinged on our plans because he wasn’t going to go somewhere else and go through the process of learning a new playbook, new coaches, new guys, all of that for just one season. Unless it was an unprecedented situation like the Chiefs trading us Mahomes for a 7th because Andy needs some Uncle Phil in his life.    And to his credit, Phil beat Father Time this year. But that just meant it was more likely that he didn’t next year. It’s a reasonable bet that Phil returning in 2021 wouldn’t be quite as good as Phil was in 2020. At his age that is the expectancy.    Maybe Ballard decided to build forward instead because of that. There’s plenty of people around here who say we’re still a couple of years away from being ready to compete for a SB. If Ballard agrees then I can definitely see him deciding to let Phil walk and get the new guy in here and get him comfortable. See what happens in 2021 so that in 2022 we feel like we’re truly ready to compete. Or at least on the very edge of being ready to by that point.    And Phil is a competitive guy. He wouldn’t have come here if he didn’t feel like we weren’t a playoff team. I just find it a bit surprising that he chose to walk away from a team that is ready to contend for the playoffs and could realistically get hot and go on a real run in the playoffs.    So yeah, I’m willing to believe it’s at least plausible that Ballard made the difficult decision to Ol’ Yeller Uncle Phil which forced Phil’s hand because it was us or nobody.    And as has been pointed out, Phil may even come out better for it. The discovery of his charisma in 2020 got noticed. And think about the market for a minute... Star QBs make the needles move the most. We’ve got a generation of QBs retiring and Phil is in a good spot. Manning won’t go into the booth. Brees probably won’t. Brady won’t. No one wants Ben. Eli wouldn’t be good. Rodgers is still too many years away. So Phil is the right guy for the right time in a way. He’s gonna wind up making damn good money in the announce booth working a whole lot less. Good for him. 
    • Look at it like this. Houston is in for a rebuild without Watson. They will have the draft capital for a quick rebuild if they do trade Watson. Culley will have his work cut out for him if Watson leaves regardless. If Culley fails and they part with him in 2-3 years, Houston still helped their image. If Watson stays, Culley will be under pressure immediately. Either way, it's up to him to sink or swim, but either way, Houston (the org) wins.
    • looks like Goff (& his insane contract) may now be in play too   IMO: no thanks, but maybe Ballard/Reich have a different opinion
