No such thing as a trap game. Nonsense really. It's like your wife having a 'trap' birthday. Like, it's her 37th and you don't bother with a present. Wooooosh. Doghouse here I come. Etc.

He and everyone else on the planet thinks that.

.500 is even and that's not on the negative side soooooo if it's not negative then it's positive

.500 is not negative....so again we're on the plus side

 

Do you not see how this makes no sense? If you believe this, you could just as easily make the argument that ".500 is even and that's not on the positive side sooooo if it's not positive then it's negative"

 

Maybe you should quit this one while you're... well, way, way behind.

 

Anyway that was a really ugly win, but I'll take it. This team is simultaneously both frustrating and encouraging. It's not so much that we sometimes play poorly that is frustrating, it's how we play poorly that is. You can tell that this team has a lot of potential when you watch them, so it's hard to watch them play poorly due to sloppiness and lack of discipline. However, this is also encouraging, because these issues should hopefully be fixable. I don't think we're too far off from being a dangerous team and legit competitor

I guess those darn Jags will be a trap game with the mighty Blake Bortles :funny:

You never know, facing a team with a better record is always good motivation to help you snap out of your spiraling team's play this season. Not to mention dashing that team's hope for a better record at their expense. Of course there is always the chance that they are ready to tank the rest of the season for a higher draft choice. If the latter is the case, then it should be an easy win.

Yeah I am just having fun now with this season because really hardly anyone thought we would be good. We are 6-5 which is respectable, they are a Divisional rival and Ramsey is always out to prove something. We just have to stay focused.

When I think how we went into this season, and all of the unknowns from Luck, coaching, roster, etc...  I am relieved on how we have done so far. The rest of the season can be just icing on the cake for progressing this year.

May have been a trap game after all but they escaped the trap...…..this time.

Again I don’t think this was a trap game.  This was a team who entered today with the same record as the Colts coming off a bye getting their starting QB back.  It was what it should have been, a close hard fought football game.  

 

The Colts didn’t play well for three quarters but they hung around and were the better team in the fourth.  That is so refreshing of the past year and a half of it being the reverse.  

 

Next week is a trap game.  Coming off a three game home stand, ridding a five game winning streak playing a floundering Jags team on the road the week before they go to the divison leader.

Anything on the positive side is winning so how is being at .500 not winning??? Anything below .500 is losing

They’re not opinions lol. Yours is an opinion. What everyone else is saying is a fact. It should be common sense but apparently it’s not. 

No it's really not and again nothing has been shown differently so keep talking about nothing then

Ok, so since you want evidence to prove you wrong, where is the evidence to prove you right? 

 

Surely there’s a scientific formula out there in this crazy old mixed up world that will prove your theory at least valid. I think we’d all like to take a peek at it. 

 

Or we’ll make it even easier than that. Just find us someone of significance that will echo your drivel. Surely there’s a well respected coach, player, or analyst out there who will have said the same thing. 

 

This is 2018. If you’re as right as you claim you are certainly you won’t be the only one out there making this claim, so back it up.

Show me where they even mentioned anything about having a "tied" team record?

You either have a winning record or losing record

Oh boy. 

 

Wikipedia as a reference?

Wikipedia falls squarely between the homeless guy who told Jimmy Haslam to draft Johnny Manziel, and a book from 1812 in terms of reliability on any subject. 

 

Of course in this case that’s actually neither here nor there because you referenced an article about how winning percentages are calculated. 

 

There was precisely 0 about a .500 record being considered winning. 

 

I find it frightening that in a world where everyone refers to a .500 record as... well, a .500 record that there is one lone nut in the forest claiming it’s a winning record. And yet somehow despite being the only one to claim such he actually believes that everyone else is wrong and he is right. 

 

Curious to say the very least.

Oh God yall are still talking back and forth about this .500 record stuff!

 

I guess it's because some people won't listen to logic.

It's better than nothing you asked for it and I gave it to you so nothing I said changes anyway

    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....  
    • I vaguely remembered something like this but misremembered that I saw it on Hard Knocks so figured it couldn't haven't been the Colts.   Now that you mention this though, I think you're right.
    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
