To keep it somewhat grounded, the Raiders are a bad team.  I will give the Colts credit for sticking with it when they easily could have rolled over and died, but that performance would not have beat very many teams in the NFL.  The defense got some stops when they absolutely needed it, but they got their butts handed to them for most of the game.  The only reason they had a chance to redeem themselves is because the offense played close to perfect (or alternatively, the Raiders' defense was just as bad).

Let us just enjoy this....    I get what you're saying, but 2 wins in a row is a good confidence builder.   The team is coming together.

Ok.  That's all folks. 

 

On the positives: we have a balanced offense, with viable air and ground attack. 

On the negatives: Perhaps it was only for today, but D was plain bad, however they've put it together for the 4th. I know they 'bend but don't break', still we can't afford it against quality opponents.

 

The talent is there, we need to learn and develop.

 

 

The "bend but don't break" did not exist today. All they did was break (see: no FGs/red zone stops) until those last two drives.

Great result, looked for a while that it could have gone either way at some points, but we got there in the end. It is a shame the bye week is next as it breaks the momentum, keep playing like this and we could still be play off contenders.

Well done the Colts.

As i said,...our pass defense is in dire need of looking over scheme wise.  Too many holes for a decent/good QB to pick apart zone.  But i love our offense right now.  The O-line hasn't given up a sack in the past 3 games.  1 in the past 4.  And our RB's are ALL moving the sticks. When the o-line gives holes..Mack can one-cut at the second level and break a huge run any given touch. 200+ rushing for team 2 weeks in a row...great game.

Can the Debbie downers ever let us enjoy a win? Good grief

Colts don't have another road game until December 2!

And our offense is healthy!...This could be the middle of a good win streak...gotta keep it up though. :)

The defense was a no show today, no passrush, but mistakes from the front, lots of missed tackles, and the secondary badly missed Hooker, our safeties could not deal with those simple seams in between zones.

 

But a great, surgical production from the offense. They put up 29 points, 4TDs and a 2 point conversion off of 4 drives. Perfect record. Crazy, even against this not good Raiders defense. It's crazy against any NFL defense.

Again, What a November schedule!  Colts enjoy their Week 9 bye week, then home games at the real LOS hosting the Jaguars, Dolphins and Titans.  Colts play their next road game for the rematch at Jacksonville on December 2.

 

No Colts Game Day Thread next Sunday, Let's savor this 42-28 win from Oakland today!

 

Happy Halloween!  GO COLTS!!!!

I'm not saying don't enjoy it.  I guess I'm just trying to temper the enthusiasm somewhat.  Fans have a tendency to go to extremes.  I'm glad they won, but I also recognize that if they were playing just about any other team than the Raiders then today's performance would have resulted in a loss.  They're still a 3-5 team, but that is better than being a 2-6 team.  There are definitely positives to take out of it.  The offense is starting to click after being almost entirely absent for the beginning of the season.  We actually have a legitimate running game.  I mean, back-to-back 200+ yard rushing games for the first time in my lifetime?  That is impressive even if one of those games was against the Raiders.  I'm salivating at the thought of having Andrew Luck at QB with a running game that will actually make opposing defenses bite on play action.  The offense will be scary good if they can sustain this running game.

I guess that clown that picked us to win 2 games from the USA Today is wrong already and we are only half way through the season. That was perhaps the dumbest prediction of the century. Like Luck wouldn't win more than 2 games. We should actually be 5-3 in reality, we gave Cincy and Houston the game with mistakes late.

    • Having him back certainly makes a difference.    Probably come back player of the year at least.
    • Brees is playing well but has way better playmakers around him and still has 4 less TDs than Luck. Most valuable player should have nothing to do with a team when an individual is balling out. Luck for MVP. (I know he won’t get it but he deserves it)
    • Glad you're not too.  Some thought he was a steal at 15 and would have picked him at 10, LOL.   I wouldn't look to move on.  Hookers on a rookie contract.  But if we moved on, I wouldn't say the GM sucked like some might.
    • For an UDFA from a small school Odum looked just fine out there yesterday. He made several instinctive plays and tackled well.    Aside from jumping on the pile at the end of the first half I'd say he played pretty damned well!!!!!!
    • Me too.  I was surprised Turay wasn't called for jumping on the Mariota QB pile.
