Colts @ Raiders Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Excellent game by Luck today.  Spread the ball around nicely and no costly mistakes!  It’s amazing what a strong running game does.  Props!

I fully appreciate that, more a comment on those who come here to only post negativity when it's not going so well. Like an inverse homer. 

Ok gotcha

Leonard showing up at the right time. Dude is a killer and I’m more than glad we took him in the 2nd round. 

 

Anyone saying otherwise just wants to argue. 

 

Who the hell is saying otherwise?

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.

But I will say that this is a more impressive win than last week. We the O has obviously been great again, but the D did step up and make big plays when needed in the clutch 4th. The running game has been a joy to watch 

 

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.

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

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.

    • I think the most likely outcome is that we draft a QB in the first 2 rounds and that JB starts next year.   Although, I could see a scenario where Ballard’s favorite top tier QB options are drafted before our pick and he takes a project guy in the mid rounds. It’ll be interesting though. For some reason I don’t see Ballard trading up, but we’ll see.
    • This years class is MUCH stronger than last years.   Much.   Even higher quality and much deeper.      So, for example....  the ‘19 class had just three first rounders...   And right second rounders.    The ‘20 class looks to have six in the first, maybe even more.  Plus 7-8 more in the second.   Crazy good.   Crazy deep. 
    • 2) Said that Darius Leonard has Lawrence Taylor like instincts. Never said Okereke was a HoF, or that Okereke was better than DL. 3) Said that AV was done after the playoff game against Cheifs. 4) Said that Lamar Jackson, Bridgewater, Mahomes were the new wave of NFL QBs. 4) Said that Simmons is that guy. And that alot of folks were anti Simmons because of off the field issues brought up upon draft day when ESPN decided to air his laundry out.   So the things listed above wasn't about football, or football players? Listen I discuss football and football related topics. Please dont tell me how to speak or how to voice my opinions on football. Everything mentioned above is searchable on nfl.com sir. Rather it be a football team or football player. Therefore, it's football related.    Lastly, Im just surprised anyone would take offense to anything I mentioned when these are things discussed in every barbershop, in Miami at least. (kanye shrug). Every week people in Miami discuss who's the next XYZ, whats gonna happen in the NFL this year, next year, etc. Why would anyone say, "I dont like the fact that you have a strong stance about football players". Is this flag football? Every Sunday folks like Darius Leonard, SS Earl Thomas, etc looks to take the heads off people, and you are bothered about me stating that Lamar Jackson is the new wave of NFL QBs? really? You do realize we are talking about the NFL and not NBA right? smh   THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE. AND WE LET'EM OFF THE HOOK. THATS WHY WE TOOK THE D@&) FIELD!
    • You can do both 3 & 6 and 3 & 4... some of the choices aren't mutually exclusive.  
    • Honestly I don't know but I just wish the Colts could somehow come together and shock us for this Monday night game and get a W against the Saints.   Small chance of it happening but it's the NFL so you never know .
