Since week 11 Colts are...


Recommended Posts

For what it's worth, since week 11 the Colts are number 3 in DVOA

 

https://www.footballoutsiders.com/dvoa-ratings/2018/week-16-dvoa-ratings

 

The Giants are number 8, so they definitely aren't currently as bad as some thought. 

 

And Tenesse is at number 24.

 

This increases my confidence that we should beat the Titans fairly easily and make some noise in the playoffs. I bet we win at least one game.

That's one of the reasons they lost to jags over confidence.

There are other factors at hand too...

 

They have NEVER beaten a Luck led. Colts team.....

 

They, like us, are playing to get into the playoffs.....

 

Lot's of motivation on their end, all they need is in game momentum and we could very well be watching the playoffs from our couches - players included!

The playoffs for the Colts start Sunday night.  A loss ends the season and this Titans squad should not be taken lightly. It will be a tough game on the road against a team with their season on the line too.  Colts must control the line of scrimmage and force the TN to abandon the run and play to our strengths.

I am extremely nervous for Sunday night. I don’t know if I’m just use to the old regime and being let down or what but I have a feeling it’s going to be really close. 

This! Idc how well the Colts are playing I still find myself doubting them. Or each week I still have bad feelings about every game. The old regime has really traumatized me. Although, I will say, the Dolphins game and the Giants game would have been loses under the old regime. So that's an improvement.

    The Colts will lose, if they beat themselves. If both teams bring their “A” games, Colts should win.

    That being said, this year has been crazy. The Colts have to assume Tennessee will give them all they can handle and play their best game of the year.

I have to laugh--and not in a good way--when I see comments to the effect of "I'm not worried about the Titans" or "should be an easy win", etc.  Keep telling yourself that. And I hope you're right. But just remember that all the stats, rankings, gut feelings and "wishing really hard" have zero influence on the outcome. Just ask the Week 13 Jags.

You act like the Colts were blown out by the Jags, or something. There was nothing all that surprising about that game. The Jags defense continued where they left off, and the Jags offense was worst than it was the last time they played; they didn't even score a touchdown. The Colts were in position to win that game, they just botched some 4th down calls. 

 

There is nothing to suggest that the Titans will win. Nothing. Stats don't point to a Titans win, and neither does history.

Sorry, but I don't "act like" anything. There is what I said, and there is what you imagine I meant by it. If you care to rebut anything specifically, I'm all ears.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
