Colts Vs. Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :)    A battle first place supremecy as the Houston Texans are in Downtown Indianapolis for the rematch with the Colts at LOS.  Texans won the earlier meeting by the score of 26-23, and played at NRG Stadium back on October  16.

 

Though at the moment both the Colts and Texans are tied at 6-6 in the AFC South Stadings, the Texans both defeated the Colts in the earlier meeting by the score of 26-23 at NRG Stadium in Houston back on October 16, and also has a 3-0 record over divisional opponents. Colts in contrast has a 2-2 record over AFC South opponents.   Colts must defeat the Texans outright today, to be up in the AFC South standings by one game to themselves, and even the series with Houston.

 

Although the Colts lead the all-time regular season series over the Texans with a 23 win and 6 loss record dating back to their first meeting in 2002, Indianapolis has lost the last two regular season games over Houston, and has not defeated the Texans at LOS, since the Colts 17-10 victory back on December 14, 2014.

 

Kevin Harlan and former Delaware Mud Hen, Raiders, and NFL QB Rich Gannon, are announcing the live TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS's early regional single header game, seen regionally, and locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4, live on HD.

 

Lucas Oil Stadium's (the building) roof is closed for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because outside the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis, cloudy skies and a wintery mix of ice and snow at 32 degrees, feels like 24 degrees is the game forecast, along with 70% precipitation, 75% humidity, and southern winds at 10 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries, win your seventh game this season over the Texans at LOS, stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:     :cheer:   :1colts:   :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :cheer:  :coltslogo:   :rock:

Just now, oldunclemark said:

If we didnt have to worry about Andrew getting hurt, we could run  the read option all day..

..won twin that way

 

This is why all the panic about it taking over the league was unwarranted. Yes, when you make the read correctly you pretty much can't lose on the play. But will your QB survive?

    • Luck played the Steelers once, in October 2014. In that game, the Colts defense allowed B. Roethlisberger to throw for 6 TDs and 522 yards. The Colts defense allowed the Steelers to score 51 points. (Luck threw for 3 TDs and 400 yards).   During the Luck era, the Colts played the Patriots in 2012, 2014, 2015 (twice) and 2018. Here are how any points the Colts defense allowed: 59, 43, 42, 45, 34 and 38.   You  are blaming Luck for not winning against the Steelers and Patriots, but it does seem like you are overlooking the other aspects of football. It's a team sport. And when I show how many points the opposing teams have put up, it should be clear that the Colts defense was not up for the challenge. But we can continue to blame Luck.
    • dude played in 6 was it playoff games? Won half of them? Beat a SB winning D in Denver.  The argument that both of you made in your own way and for different reasons was that the Colts roster wasn't good. True story.  Watson is the better NFL QB right now for the same reason Chad Kelly is, they're playing. Beyond that? I'm pretty sure Luck is still upper tier of ability and debating that seems kind of pointless- but he's not playing so pointless is operative to the whole of the conversation. 
    • Watson was drafted 5 years later than Luck. He may not of been as good as Luck was in 2014, but I'll take Watson at 24 over a rusty Luck at 30 anyday. Wilson may of won the SB based off his running attack and defense, but he is easily the 2nd best QB today and has carried that team for awhile since the defense has fallen off. He has also never had an O-Line and his WR's have been subpar until recently.    Luck didn't win the important games. He never beat the Pats or Steelers in his career, and those were the games that mattered most since they were in our conference and were our obstacles to making the SB at that time. His last game will be known for losing to Patrick Mahomes in his 2nd year. I have serious doubts Luck would of ever beat Mahomes and the Chiefs, and there are several other QBs like Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson (in the division) that were as good or better than him.    When you are the no1 overall pick, you go to a worse team, plain and simple. You want to argue Luck had it worse than Wilson when Luck was the best prospect since Elway supposedly and Wilson was a 3rd round QB. Maybe Wilson was underrated and Luck was overrated? Most QBs that go no1 overall don't win SBs early in their careers for a reason, the team they get drafted to is awful and they are supposed to be the savior and the answer to the team. Luck may of been that, but he took his ball and went home.   No excuses. Ballard built a team around him, and Luck even played with a solid version of it in 2018. He quit, and now guys like Wilson, Jackson and Watson are the new faces of the NFL. I'd rather have one of them then someone who doesn't have passion for the game, and screwed all of his teammates and the fans.
    • Watson had a good year in 2019 with 26 TDs and 12 INTs. In 2018, he had 26 TDs and 9 INTs. If Luck had those stats, we would say that Luck had a down year. No way has Watson eclipsed Luck, and I don't think that's a controversial statement to make, right?   Luck never made the Super Bowl, unlike Russel Wilson.   By the way, what was the Seahawks' defensive ranking the year they won the Super Bowl? I'll give you a hint -- it was #1. Rushing offense rank - #1. And how about their passing offense? It was ranked as #27. Looks to me that their #1 ranked defense and their #1 ranked rushing offense had a lot to do with getting to the Super Bowl. Here is the stats page from ESPN as reference.  https://www.espn.com/nfl/stats/team/_/season/2014/seasontype/2/table/passing/sort/netPassingYardsPerGame/dir/desc   By the way, who had the #1 passing offense that year? Yup, you guessed it. Luck and the Colts. The Colts had the #1 passing offense despite a poor O-line, and no run game, meaning that teams knew they were going to throw the ball, and they still couldn't stop Luck. Russell Wilson is a very good QB, but it's all too clear that you need a complete TEAM to make it to the Super Bowl. Take for example Manning with the Colts vs Manning with the Broncos. The Broncos gave Manning a good O-line, WRs, TE, and great defense and that resulted in multiple Super Bowls in a very short period of time.   Is it fair to say that Luck didn't step up? He carried a garbage roster to the post season every time he was healthy. He beat the Seahawks and the Legion of Boom defense, the 49ers with harbaugh, and Manning led Broncos teams. He has won plenty of big games.   Lastly, Jared - Let's say that you play for a football team. You are surrounded with a few good players and the rest of the team is largely just trash. You somehow find a way to carry your team to the playoffs, time-and-time again. Yet, you lose in the playoffs. Should we blame YOU or the trash players around you who couldn't contribute when you needed them to?
