Will never understand why some of you go crazy with happiness when we win meaningless games do you guys really enjoy being in constant rebuild mode?

 

At the end of the day, all games are meaningless.  They're just games.  If you don't find some sense of enjoyment in watching your team win, then what is the point of following sports?

I posted a few days back - "watch the Colts run of five straight..."

I saw that and I thought the same thing.  It would be about right for that to happen, don't think five is in the making but a few could be.

 

Kind of a double edge sword.... who wants to lose, but in the end it is better for the whole

Wait until tomorrow before you place that bet. You might want to think on it overnight. LOL

I find enjoyment in seeing them improve we won't if we constantly ruin our draft position every year luck deserves better

Please tell me how wanting elite talent is stupid? You enjoy struggling to beat Tom savage? 

 

Well, I have faith in our GM to put a good team together.  Thats how.

 

If winning is a problem for you regardless of the level or challenge it was to win... (you must forget that we are missing half our team too) then you are misinformed about what competition is all about......

 

It gets old hearing "next man up" but what are we supposed to do.... really?  Not win?  That is stupid

Damn right I don't like seing my team blow every year like you all lol 

It's not about draft position, it's about who you pick. Patriots haven't picked top 15 heck even top 20 since like 2000, yet they are always contenders. The Browns have picked top 5 pretty much for 25 years and still suck

The Colts got a win today. 

 

Enjoy it! We won't have many this year. Just enjoy this one. :)

This win is absolutely terrible the less we win the better lol it's sad how many don't grasp this lmao

We "grasp it," Bud.  We also enjoy seeing a win against the Texans - regardless.  After the bye, we play Pittsburgh...we'll get back on your vaunted high-draft pick express.  For now, let some enjoy a win.

When you have 2 or 3 great players out of your whole roster yes position matters

Also we have a good GM making the high picks that's a big difference

Yes and higher picks give you a higher probability of getting good players.  Patriots are a bad example, they're contenders because of Brady and Belichick

I know I don't get why people don't understand that, I have been Posting stuff like this for 2 years. It's who you pick not where unless you have the #1 pick and have a Luck coming out. I don't even see why people watch the Colts if they want us to lose. I think Chuck is gone regardless unless somehow we miraculously win the Division which wont happen. I still think we will be lucky to win 6 games. Today was a nice win considering the opponent.

I'll eagerly await your upcoming Mock Drafts to see who you got going where in 2018 draft...  and who you think we should have got versus who Ballard chooses...

Of course the players and coaches should be trying their best to win.  But that doesnt mean that as a fan I should take 5 minutes of pleasure over improved outlook for the future.

No dumb # I get it the team is trying to win we shouldn't want wins as fans it extends our rebuild if we don't start getting some elite players 

 

In the end, we will be picking early. 

 

We will have a great draft position. 

 

We just beat Houston, and that feels pretty damn good!

    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
    • Age and health would be the argument for Smith and Leonard right now.  It’s not all about position.
    • It is my understanding the Colts grade every player on every pay.  Their has to be a method.  It was my understanding, i don't KNOW, that more teams than not subscribe to PFF, for their own reasons. Perhaps they too snark at their numbers.    The story i recently read/heard about a fumble recovery for a touchdown turned one DE's weekly grade from the 60's to near 90, well, that is very concerning if true.  The best way to see if someone is any good was back when i watched every Colts play in super slow-mo, sometimes frame by frame to see what really happened. Unfortunately i couldn't compliment that with all-22.  AC looked BAD for his 1st 3 seasons in pass-pro, and Andrew was terrible with timing and accuracy in the short game. Based on Harbaugh's pre-draft hype, and others of course "not since Elway," that part of his game disgusted me.  PFF can't reflect how much benefit or damage is done by the overall effectiveness of those around you, or good or bad coaching. Ras isn't everything but is a very solid place to start.
    • Nate only missed 1 kick in the Divisional round loss against the Patriots, it was a what would've been a then career long 54 yarder when he was rushed on to the field to attempt it as time was expiring due to the Chargers having burned all their timeouts. Had he made that kick, it would've only tied the game, not given San Diego the lead or win. He converted all 3 of his extra point attempts in that game.   He was brutal in the 2009 Divisional round loss to the Jets, he had only missed 3 kicks all season and missed 3 in that game alone, although one of them was a  57 yard attempt that would've tied his career long. He had already missed a 36 yarder and that Bolts were up 7-0 when Norv trotted him out to attempt that long one at the end of the half, and that miss combined with the earlier one seemed to scramble his eggs. Later in the game while down by 10, he badly missed a 40 yard attempt and although the Chargers got another touchdown, they ended up losing by 3.    He missed when he hit the upright from 48 yards out in the 2007 Divisional round victory at Indy and in the only AFCCG he played in, Kaeding accounted for all 12 of the Chargers' points by going 4 for 4 against the undefeated Patriots in the snow flurries at Foxboro.
    • You're probably right.  But a franchise LT is the more important position.  More than RT, and even an All Pro LB.   I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term.  But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term.  He won't be cheap either.   I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted.  Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare.  And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.
