Could The Colts Actually Make the Playoffs?

Recommended Posts

We probably have to win the Division to get in and the way Houston keeps getting lucky every week, it won't probably happen. Chargers and Bengals will get in as Wildcards more than likely. Bengals have the tiebreaker over us and are 5-3 right now. I can still see us finishing 9-7 though and making it interesting. On a side note, there are 12 teams that either have a worse record than us or the same record. We are alot better than people thought we would be. Many picked us to be the worst team in the league and maybe only winning 2-5 games.

Playoff experience for this team would do more than a higher draft pick, especially the way this staff scouts talent.  We’re past the “Must have a high pick to get a playmaker” mentality correct?  Can’t see the point?  Did we not limp into Foxboro with a backup squad & compete when the entire World thought 41-3, ME included?  We’re at FULL strength for the first time  so let’s forget the early colts & get behind this locomotive that has FULL STEAM!  ALL ABOARD

If they go 7-1 the rest of the way, they would be a legitImate SB contender.  

I like the enthusiasm, but no. Not this season.

 

I think the team is solid, but not good enough to put down the Chiefs/Pats/Steelers. Maybe on our best day, but I haven't seen enough of our team at 100%. I can tell you that our defense is not SB caliber, for sure.

You saw 1 game with team at 100% that resulted in a 2 score victory on the road,  not impressed?  D def not SB caliber but do you agree the O might be close?  I get the “Not this Season” approach but what do we as fans have to lose by buying in this yr?  I want to see this fully healthy squad down the stretch before signing off for 2019, what do you say?  RISE UP COLT NATION

I think we can play a spoiler role but to make the playoffs, the stars just don't seem to be aligning. Shame too, we are going to be pretty good for these last 8 games I'm thinking.  Big test is can we stop the Jags LF.  That will tell us a lot about how we will finish.  We've had those seasons where it seems to be going good and then someone drops a "2" burger on us to produce some "ground-chuck".

 Next 3 games are AT home & Playoff teams simply don’t lose at home.  3-5 to 6-5 is REALITY, if this team is truely playoff worthy but we can’t under estimate HOW a HOME CROWD can be the difference here.  I know this team & Org wants it but WE may be the final stat!  RISE UP

Not many on here.  Well, I guess 15 people chose 4-6 wins and 1 had 0-3 wins.

Many in the media had us 2-5 wins. One guy from the USA Today had us going 2-14. Remember that Thread.

Yep.   He was an *, and I think most of us here agreed that he didn't know what he was talking about.    However, at the time, we were not sure Luck would be back for the whole season.   Personally, I thought he would take a couple hits in the first couple games and be out most of the season.    I'm sure glad I wasn't right.  :thmup:

This is what we colts fans thought our season was going to be. The media on the other hand, had us at 3-13, 4-12 most of the time, one even going as 2-14

I think we should all rise up. Just a suggestion. 

That's Atlanta's thing. Remember the Sam L Jackson commercial?

It was a nice win. But it was against the Raiders. 

 

Now if we were healthy against the Pats, I certainly think that game is a lot different. But I haven't seen them healthy against a quality opponent yet. If we can keep this same energy against the rest of the division, I'll be impressed. I'm sold on Luck, but nothing else.

This Jags game is the biggest game we have had in a while. If we win the Forum will be :yahoo::banana::excited::lombardi:, if we lose it will be this :hairout::tvsmash::wall::Nuke:. These Emoticons are the funniest thing ever and I am in my mid 40's. I feel like a 13 year old Posting these lmao

I'm looking at the second wild card. 

 

Bengals lost, which is good.  Tennessee won, though, unfortunately.  Need to get the head-to-head over Tennessee.

 

Miami is losing.

 

Win next week and it's 1-5 to 5-5.

Titans just beat Tommy 34-10, that game may not be as easy as I thought. Should be another tough Division game. They are 5-4 and we are 4-5 = another must win.

 

On a topic such as this one, they are all must wins...

 

And doable. But they are all must wins.

  How is Colt Nation feeling about this team now?  Are you Sold on Coach Reich?  This Team?  We need EVERYBODY on Sunday to RISE UP once again & show the League WERE BACK!!!

    • Really can’t afford Turray to flop bc of laziness. I hope he gets his act together and realize he could become the #1 guy on the line come contract time.  That could mean millions or could mean his job.  I’ve unfortunately have done this with multiple people with great potential in my company.  When up for their review, instead of getting a raise they are given their walking papers due to lack of performance and laziness. I found out quickly you can’t teach work ethic and professionalism.  Either they have it or they don’t. 
    • Never mind, I read last years thread again. I’m good to go.
    • Thats the key to sustained success. Hopefully your team can keep choosing players that fit their system and adapt as times and players change.  I believe we do have that in place.  In a couple years it should be a well oiled machine and legitimate SB contenders. 
    • Refresh my memory please...I know we did it like this year but I don’t recall all the specifics.   Wasn’t it stay the same spot or pick an open spot? I don't recall picking any spot you wanted. I thought we had a couple opening last year which is why we did it?
    • Yep, I think there’s a lot of talent in the WR corps, but I’m not sure who’s gonna really step up.  With the talent there, though, I’m sure that Reich will make the receiving corps into twice the unit that anyone in the media thinks it can be...
