27-0.......

I know that many of us want us to lose...but this is very satisfying to me.....

....if we can hold a 27-point lead...we're back in the playoff hunt

If the Texans and titans both lose then we are definitely back in it...

 

Our destiny is still out of our hands but it becomes a whole lot more realistic.

The Vikings have not shown any reason to think they can come back and win this game. I know a lot can happen in the second half but the Colts are dominating.

 

On paper, I thought this was a game the Colts should lose but also wasn't going to be surprised if they did win. I'm going to assume they end up winning this game but I never would have guessed they would dominate like they have.

 

As enjoyable as it is to see the Colts play so well I can't help but be * at how poorly they have played in others. Last week game among others.

Yeah my expectations are incredibly low so this is a pleasant surprise.  The two losses against the Texans were absolutely devastating.

He could be a 100 catch guy with a year or two of work..

...He's far too big for a safety or corner to cover and few LBs can hang with him

He just needs coaching

100 catch guy? Are you insane? I am assuming you are talking about 100 catches in ONE season? Very few WR1s get 100 catches let alone TEs, especially ones that needed several redshirt years.  We should be extremely excited if he becomes a 50 catch, 700 yard type of guy!

Both are about even, I am just puzzled how we can be up 27-0 at Half in Minny but lose to Brock at home.

 

Yeah, it's the Texans D and the Lamar Miller show.  If the Colts had any semblance of a D they would've won that game regardless how bad the Colts offense played.

Even when Luck plays well the talking heads always bring up a negative. Talk how poorly he played last week. He was not the reason for that loss and the turnovers came off a fallen receiver and hits. I know Luck has some off days but I could count not that as his fault last week. Just smh! Well enogh rant from me! Just irritating, seems he gets singled out to much!

Remember Julius Thomas?,...went from basketball to practice squad....to a 3-catch guy

..to a 1,000 yard guy and $15 mil deal.  Swooope resembles him and Andrew would feed ho he ball.

Mark my words

 

That's the history of basketball players-turned tight ends

No...I'm just somebody who watches there basketball-turned tight end guys.

You cant cover them

Julius Thomas missed a lot of games and dropped some balls. He was a practice squad guiy.

 

But he scored 15 TDs one year...didnt he?  signed a $12 mi, deal...

Swoope is way too big for a corner or safety and way too fast for an LB

If he just works on route running......Andrew will make him  a star

    • I was thinking that we would trade back to 20s and take AD Mitchell   it is the lying season but people are starting to say he is a head case.  Brian Thomas or Latu at 15
    • Lol...so Ballard is the worst GM in the league. Too funny. Time to change your name again.
    • They let him go because they paid Chris Jones instead. They also have Trent McDuffie. Their scouting department has proven they can draft corners. They have won 3 SBs with Mahomes (and made 4), I'm pretty sure they can trade a player away instead of paying him from time to time. Veach has earned that trust among the fanbase.    If I were a Chiefs fan, I would be extremely happy right now. Best QB in the league. won 3 SBs and made 4 with Mahomes. A great GM that builds through the draft and FA. An elite defense.    Those numbers were average for Mahomes standards yes. Normally he's much better than that. If we had those numbers on the Colts, we'd probably make the playoffs every year. We don't though. That's Ballard's fault since Luck's retirement. You and a lot of others take for granted that a new GM usually doesn't have an elite QB to start his tenure. Ballard did, that was a luxury. He had a large head thinking all he had to do was build through the draft around Andrew Luck. When Luck retired, Ballard was exposed. He didn't even know the proper way to get a QB. He was trying to do it through FA and trades when the vast majority of the time teams develop their franchise QBs through the draft.    Ballard built through the draft, except for the QB. How ironic is that?    8 years in, we are still hoping we hit on the QB. Maybe AR is the guy, as the division is harder, as the AFC has numerous elite QBs, as the NFL passes us by. "If we had average QB play like that these last 7 years". Where has the standards gone of being a fan? We should be regularly making the playoffs and competing for a SB 8 years in Ballards tenure. Instead, we are hoping the QB hits still at this point and we can fix the secondary on the team.    Give me a break. This team is run by a scout that's a wannabe GM who stubbornly refuses to change his ways. The only reason we're mediocre is because he's actually good at scouting. Unfortunately, as a GM, he has no idea how to compete with 31 other GMs who are actually qualified to be GMs.     
    • Interesting:   San Antonio Chiefs Portland Chiefs Louisville Chiefs Oklahoma City Chiefs or Tulsa Chiefs Omaha Chiefs   There are several options out there.   It would be more interesting if there was a movement to change the name of the team during the move.
