Show up for what?  Lol Get the better draft pick and get on with the ouster of this raggedy front office and coaching staff. 

You don't gwet a better draft pick by losing

you get a good pick by making good picks

 

12th or 16th is irrrelevant

You only get 1 pick a round

He is so hard to figure...he rolls up numbers but sometimes he seems to force the ball and gets intercepted easily...

Trying to do it al himself (sound familiar?)

 

Truth is: Jax probably has better players than we do outsid eQB

 

Yeah, they have a much better roster.

This team is far cry from our 2014 team, only teams better than us that season was the Pats and Seahawks. We went from the 3rd best team in the league to just an Average mid pack team.

That 2014 edition was the best team of this Luck Colts era in my opinion.  The win over the 49ers was the most this team ever looked like the team originally envisioned for the new era Colts in my opinion.

Where in the hell was this Blake Bortles all year?? He plays like this all year and the Jags are in the playoff and prolly undefeated in the division

 

Are you kidding? A lot of mediocre QBs look like world beaters against the Colts. Colts are trash, which is the main reason Bortles are playing this well. Against good teams he is nothing special. Context is everything.

He played good last year he just needs coaching he's not as trash as some of us think. They get a coach that's good with qbs he may be a problem with that D

12th or 16th is not irrelevant. The one guy you absolutely love could be available at pick #13, but you pick at #16. 

We have many needs..we can get someone we need anywhere we'll be drafting

..the lose to draft higher argument is just not real..

 

Losing never helps you

I should have said slot instead of pick as it is what I meant.  There is a decent enough value difference between the 12th and 16th slot by the way.

    • It is amazing that a lot of games can come down to only 1 or 2 game changing plays to determine a winner now days. It is a fine line between winning and losing. Tennessee won 4 games last year (At Seattle, Here, 49ers, Saints)  that I can remember because lady luck was on their side. They could have easily lost all of those games and been an 8-9 team. They would somehow get a crucial INT late when the opposing QB had a brain fart or they would convert a 4th and long then win on a last 2nd FG. Back in the day when we had Peyton we could make 2 or 3 mistakes and get away with it most of the time, now we can't nor can most teams.
    • Last year should be a case study for why it's very hard to win games in the NFL. Plenty of teams who should have won more, lost. Plenty of teams who should've lost, won. Gone are the days of cut and dry guaranteed winners. On paper the Bills should easily win their division, but in reality the flipping Dolphins could even win that title. 
    • I agree the OL doesn’t look elite now.   The difference is….   I wasn’t expecting it.   Not with two new guys.   And I’m not expecting it by wk1 of the regular season.    Too soon.    But I’m expecting it to be good enough to win with until it gets better.    Kevin Bowen has written our OL is no longer elite, but it can still be very good.   And I think that’s fair.   That’s what I’m hoping for.  
    • I agree with your last sentence for sure.  It looks like some on this thread don't realize the complexity of Oline play. And a major caveat here is that you can't really simulate the effectiveness in the running game, as I have stated almost every time I've commented on the oline.     However NCF, our Oline has also been getting beat up quite often in 1 on 1 matchups.  It's pretty evident.  In pass pro, most and at times all 5 linemen are going to be on their own.  Our pass pro was horrendous last season, and that can be largely accounted for by injury, but it was also horrendous late in the season, and unless people are hiding injury, we were mainly healthy.  If we have to chip and keep people in to combat this, then an already underwhelming pass catching unit will be even less whelming.    We don't look like a top unit right now, and if you don't see that, then we just see things differently.   I think it's imperative to this team's success that the OLINE plays at an elite or at least near elite level since there is so much invested in it, but right now it seems fairly obvious to me anyway that we don't seem to be on that trajectory.  
    • Lions IMO will be better than most people think this year. I have them at 5 wins, maybe 6. They lost a lot of close games last year. I could care less it was just the Lions, they are an NFL team. I suppose on opening day when we beat Houston, some will say it was only Houston  . Some in here think winning in the NFL is easy. Suit up and explain it to me
