I'm desperately hoping we get a lot of our injured guys back next week. 

 

I think AC was dressed and could have played in an emergency so I think that is a good sign for next week, Mack's had a couple weeks of limited practices so he's got to be ready at some point, the fact that Darius Leonard and Nate Hairston both got in limited practices and were game time decisions are good signs.

 

Clayton Geather's neck injury is really scaring me though.

  I was hoping the Colts would make the game competitive and they did. Too many mistakes but I still think they can make the playoffs if they get healthy.

This wasnt pencilled in as a win when the season began...

....we're in a hole..but eventually we get some injured players back, right?

  Final tabulation

 

Andrew Luck 38 of 59, 365, 3 Tds, 2 INTs

 

Brings on the Jets

 

My goodness I hope we can actually have a fast start and establish a run game in the next few games. We're going to rip Luck's arm off with all these attempts every week.

We actually hung tough tonight and Luck put up huge numbers. 38-24 final. At least it wasn't 45-7 :thmup:

I concur. I think the team played the pats tough on the road with almost everyone hurt. I thought with a full team, we had a chance but with all those starters out, I was hoping it wasn’t 50-10. I’ve long resisted picking a wr with a 1st rd pick but I think this team needs another elite level wr to pair with TY. I love Cain but I’m not sure he is that top level guy. Would love to have a Collie type hands guy.

Well, that's the hope, but how many times have we been disappointed in the past with this thinking?  I'll believe it when i see it.

Even then, the ones that come back will just be replaced by those that are healthy now.

 

Wow, good thing I'm such an optimist, lol.

We need to treat these next 3 games as the Playoffs. At Jets, Bills at home, at Raiders - we need all 3. We have to win all 3 or the season is toast IMO. If we can win all 3 and get to 4-4 going into the BYE, the 2nd half of the season will be real interesting and fun to watch. We still would have 2 games vs the Jags left and another with Houston left. I am extremely happy with how Luck looks because I really wasn't sure what to expect coming into the season. He looks Good. Leonard looks legit too on Defense. We just need another playmaker on Offense and some sort of running game. Ebron is a Good player IMO.

Really, what were you expecting?

To not drop the ball as often...

 

To force Brady to throw deep early and often... and pressure him more which he hates. (Notice, when we did these things, the defense had success) 

 

To not get down 18 points at halftime to a New England team that isn't near as talented as in years past. 

 

I expected to lose, and i am glad they fought back and at least made it somewhat respectable... but we could have made this a game tonight, and we shot ourselves in the foot time after time.

Yeah evethough we are 1-4, I like the direction the Colts are going in. We are in every game and Luck looks strong and healthy. One thing that does bother me is we are injury prone though. Season is still young - the next 3 games will be the tell all for Indy.

 

-Nice win by you guys but you do what you normally do against young teams especially. Brady is one of the GOAT's along with Montana and Peyton. He wasn't losing to this Colts team tonight no matter what kind of magic Luck tried. Pats are still the team to beat in the AFC IMO. KC looks good but they always do in the Regular Season, Jags have Bortles LOL.

Then I would say that your expectations were not low.  

 

New England's team may not be as talented as they have been, but they are still much more talented than the Colts.  The Colts do make too many errors, dropped passes, fumbles, etc.  However, that is more than likely a by product of not having enough talent yet.  Also, only having 44 players dress and then losing 3 more during the game is not a recipe for success when your talent level is already below that of your opponent.

  Yeah. Ballard and Reich are building for the long term future. But I still haven’t given up on this year. 

  The Colts this year are an example of why Parcel’s “you are what your record says you are” doesn’t always hold true:

   If everyone of their four losses was a beat down, they’d still be 1-4 but not nearly as competitive, nor would there be any reason to have hope for this year. 

   I don’t think it’s totally a matter of “lack of talent”, but inexperience, penalties and sloppy play.

   It’s a long season and they have the potential to turn things around.

Umm the Colts D stopped the Pats twice this game.  Gronk and Hogan handed them easy turnovers and Edelman dropped a pass when he was wide open.  So you didn’t “force”Brady do anything.

 

That said, with all the D injuries even DURING the game there was no way the Colts D could do much stop the Patriots!  The Colts Ohad way way to many dropped passes. (Without then it’s probably a shoot out)

My expectations for guys that make the money these guys (even our young inexperienced ones) are making is pretty straight forward. I've been around highschoolers that don't drop the ball at the rate these guys do. Chester Rogers with touchdown drops in consecutive weeks. Ebron finished strong but still drops easy dimes with no one around. Inexcusable, regardless of the "talent" level. Waiting patiently for Fountain to get his chance.

And both times, there was good pressure that forced him to throw the ball away, and good coverage underneath so he couldn't dink and dunk us to death. We allowed Brady to come out early and not even have to think about throwing deep. 1.4 second average release on that opening drive. Impossible to play when you give him exactly what he wants.

I don't remember Rogers dropping a TD pass, just a long pass on the sideline, not sure if he would of scored on that.  I am interested in seeing what Fountain can do, but he seems like a project wr with a lot of potential.  He may not be ready until next year.

He dropped one directly in the endzone.

I may have been in the bathroom for that one, but I also may have just not remembered it because there were way to many drops last night.

You may be right. I took it as the Pats changing it up in the second half going for bigger plays since the Colts really were not pressuring Brady at all.  I could be totally wrong but that’s how I took it. (Especially after the 3 and out start the 3rd) 

 

as for the stops?  Who knows twice is not enough really get any sort of intel on.. and he only threw one of those away.. the other was to low to Gordon.  (Again the injuries hurt the colts on D.. the O drops were a bigger factor than anything the D did)

    • I like Dillon, but he is what he is, a between the tackles RB with zero value to the passing game. 
    • Going into the season, I thought we had a very formidable 1-2 WR group with TY and Funchess.  I had higher hopes for Cain and thought Campbell would really blossom as the season went on.     Funchess got hurt for the year after it looked like he and Jacoby had nice chemistry week 1.  Cain wasn't the Cain the colts.com documentaries were making him out to be.  TY has been banged up for a good chunk of the season.  Campbell has shown flashes, but he's been hurt or injured almost all season.     On top of that, I thought Ebron and Doyle would be one of the most formidable TE groups in the league.  Ebron had multiple bad drops along the way and is now on the IR.  Doyle's had an all right year, but the rest of our TE's are nothing better than mediocre (at least at receiving).     While J. Williams also had a couple of good games, our running attack was without our #1 for a couple weeks and our team didn't win with Mack on the injury report.
    • LOL yes I have been an eyewitness to much of this, definitely don’t need to see it on YouTube to believe you. And I have had the unfortunate experience of wearing my Colts jersey to a preseason game once, definitely got taunted and that was only preseason! Only didn’t bother me as much because I grew up in inner city Philly so I was used to the rudeness  but no I totally get it, I never said the reputation wasn’t deserved. But since I am from Philly I just jump to hating Dallas more, just my personal bias 
    • https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2638165-aj-dillon-displays-freak-athleticism-will-be-all-purpose-back-at-michigan.amp.html "Standing 6'1", 239 pounds, Dillon clocked a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash and a 4.29 in the shuttle. His athleticism (38.3-inch jump) and strength (40-foot toss) were also on display, earning him SPARQ (speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness) ratings MVP honors for a second-straight year."   https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/aj-dillon-1.html   Freshman 2017.  1500+ yds Rushing Sophomore 2018. 1100+ yds  Junior. 2019.          1600+ yds   RB isn't high on my "Colts need" list, but A.J. Dillon is the perfect complimentary RB for this Team. Even at 249lbs he's still running a 4.5 40-yd and he doesn't get injured like Mack bc of his size.  
    • Dude, he didn’t play well when he had the starters playing. Face this fact, he can’t get past his first read, regardless of the time his oline gives him. He isn’t Manning or Luck and that’s always been clear,  ever felt he would be. I always thought he would be capable of reading more than 1 and maybe sometimes 2 reads but he hasn’t and at this stage, don’t think he can. He isn’t the guy this team risks the “with time he will get it”. He hasn’t shown growth in that area. Solid bench guy. Great team morale guy. Awful awful starter.
