It was a mistake providing internet access to bridges. 

Colts should have ran a fake on that last FG.  No one would have expected that with the record at stake.  Lol.

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.

    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
