NE or Jacksonville??? Who are you rooting for?

Recommended Posts

   Part of me hopes NE beats Jacksonville but at least one of them will lose.

    As a Colts fan, maybe the best outcome would be a tie?

New England will win in all likelihood. They'll outsmart Jacksonville somehow.

Lol.. am I weird? Jacksonville, Blake Bortles, Jalen Ramsey, and dem boys are my 2nd favorite team this week.

 

Don't think we're quite ready to win the division this year. So even if the Jags lose we won't gain anything lol

That's easy;  Jacksonville.  NE is our No. 1 enemy.  But also remember this is year two.  We are only trying to develop players for next year.  That's the year we're going to go for it.  Not this year.  I think most on this board have accepted that.  This season is really our preseason for next year.  That's the plan.   So it doesn't really matter who wins.

Tom Brady said it best.. maybe people would've hate the him so much if football was international and our players played outside the country.. It happened in Basketball for some players. I hated Lebron forever, untill I was rooting for him on Team USA..

 

But that'll never be the case for the NFL.. and I'll NEVER root for Tom, Gronk, or the hoodie. :lol:

If the Pats won that would help us out more. If we win and the Jags lose we are tied for 1st in our Division. I can't stand the Pats like everyone else in here but I also look at every angle and circumstances. Just like in my 35 year fandom I never have rooted for the Colts to lose but because of circumstance in 2011 once we got to 0-8 I did. I knew if we had the #1 pick we would get Luck is why. Just smart thinking. 99% of the time I don't even believe in tanking (to me the Draft is a crapshoot) but if there is an Andrew Luck there then I am ok with it if we get to 0-8.

Rooting for NE+Colts win to be 1st in the AFCS, easy answer. We can deal with NE in week 5 and later in the playoffs (hopefully:goodluck:)

Rooting for Gronk specifically because I have him on my big fantasy team. Otherwise, a Jax loss would be better this early in the season. Pats are making the playoffs anyway, a Jax loss could be the difference in them tying or losing to someone in the division this year (us please).

If the Pats beat Jacks and the Titans beat the Texans would anyone be complaining if the standings read:

Colts 1-1

Jacks 1-1

Titans 1-1

Texans 0-2

-That is if we win as well. Take out who is playing who, just look at those standings through week 2. I would be real happy with that.

Yeah all these people like a loss to jax is going to keep NE out of the playoffs. NE will make the playoffs anyway, we might as well be first heading into philly...

We had this same conundrum last week when NE played Houston. As much as I hate to see the Pats get off to a 2-0 start, Jacksonville losing is definitely in our best interest.

I don't love that Jacksonville is as legit as they are, but I've got a much longer standing dislike of New England. That thing can go away anytime now. I promise I won't miss it, or long for it or go "gee remember when?". Go away.

If it were a playoff matchup, & we were already eliminated, I'd definitely be rooting for Jacksonville. But wanting one of our division opponents to be off to a 2-0 start in the regular season seems strange to me.

I'm a perfect world the jags would shatter Brady's femur. Hospitalize B.B. with a out of bounds hit and then lose the game. 

 

Thats just me though heh

We're going to have to go through both, so we'll have our shot to "fix" whatever happens in relation to standings. You're logic is better though. I'm telling you how I'm going to feel, irrespective.

No brainer … New England.  Gotta take care of the division before worrying about out of division rivalries.

The only way I’d root for N.E. Is if they were playing the Yankees. Needless to say, that isn’t happening.

My stance is that we're gonna need all the help we can get to win this division, & if that help comes from New England, far be it from me to not accept it. The way I look at it, they're pretty much a shoe in for the #1 seed & homefield throughout the playoffs no matter what, so rooting against them when they play our division rivals is kind of a lost cause.

Just hoping for a Colts win and let the chips fall where they may, but if I have to choose, I'll take a NE loss anytime and we can beat the Jags twice.

    • I went ahead and submitted the trade.
    • Unless things starts to get better and we go on a win streak, which at the moment isn't likely, though we have a pretty "easy" schedule for the rest of the season.    There is one thing we could hope for this, besides a miracle, is to finish with a worse record than the Giants, and pick before them in the 2019 draft.   Why?   They need a QB to replace Eli.  Other teams that could be interested in a QB would be Denver Broncos,  maybe the Oakland Raiders and possibly Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay.   As of right now, only Justin Herbert - QB from Oregon and Drew Lock from Missouri are valued as potential 1st round picks, which makes this draft very thin for the QB class.   So by finishing worse than the Giants, the Colts could sit with a strong hand come draft time, IF - and that's a big IF, two teams would wan't to go into a bidding war for Justin Herbert and make a trade to get him.   Of course I wan't the colts to win, and win now, but I'd rather have a top pick, and preferably more picks than finish with a better record, say 5-11 or 6-10 and sit at a position in the draft, where we have no leverage in a possible trade scenario.    The Giants will be the one team to watch, compared to our own record this season, If such a scenario should play out.   Regarding the Raiders, Broncos and Jaguars, I'm not sure they would necessarily pick a QB as the Giants would, If they were to finish with a worse record than us, and I don't think that either of the Broncos and Jaguars will finish below the Colts.   Yes it's early and still 10 games to go, but whats your take on this?  
    • Pretty confident, Anderson will look like, Brady this week.   whether we win or not is another story.......   cant wait for the game though, go Colts!!
    • Going against Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, J.J. Watt... Not bad at all. Even Clark, Haeg, Slauson held their own against such competition.
    • If you're in the final three,  we made an offer.     It's not like only three teams showed any interest.    Norwell didn't visit either the Giants or the 49ers.     His agent took offers from teams that showed interest.    The only team he went to was the one whose offer he accepted.   Since we made an offer to Jensen and he signed for nearly $11 Mill per year,  there's no reason to think we didn't make an offer to Norwell.       One last thought.....   Jensen came to Indy for a visit...   typically a signal we're going to sign the player.    And yet,  he left without a deal.    He went to Tampa and eventually signed there.   I don't "The Visit" is something that's written in stone in order for Ballard to sign a player...     if Norwell agreed to terms,  then he would've come to sign his deal as he did with Jacksonville...    without a visit ahead of time.
