Since week 11 Colts are...

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

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.

    • Sure, if it's a popularity contest.   But statistically, Rivers was the best QB in the league from 2008-2010.  He was top 3 in 2013 and 2018.   And for comparison's sake, let's look at Brady vs Rivers in the years I listed.  Rivers undoubtedly had better performances in 2008, 2009, 2013, and 2018.    Heck, Brady only played part of 1 game in 2008, while Rivers led the league in TDs, TD%, Y/A, AY/A, and passer rating...I'd love to find the person who thinks he had a better season than Rivers that year.   And let me expand on that 2008 season, and how it proves Rivers has been criminally underrated (which leads to many of these unnecessary HOF discussions).  Imagine a QB that leads the entire NFL in TDs, TD%, Y/A, AY/A, and passer rating but doesn't even get voted to the pro bowl.  I don't think a QB has ever been more robbed of accolades than Philip Rivers that year.  Should have been MVP.
    • The quoted stat says JT runs.   The OP took that and somehow twisted it into an indictment on Rivers.  Pretty stupid post honestly.
    • A bit of a reach you're making here.  There's no evidence that stat has anything to do with opponents fearing Rivers' ability to throw downfield.  You come off as an irrational Rivers hater to be honest.   As others have pointed out, Rivers has been pretty deadly when going deep compared to the rest of the league. You also ignore the fact that this stat is for actual JT running plays - not all plays - as well as the fact that the stat is likely skewed by the fact that in half of our games we ran clock for the majority of the second half.  Of course the D is gonna stack the box in those situations.   Do you happen to know which 4 RBs have faced a higher percentage of stacked boxes on their runs?  And if so, do you also claim it's because those QBs are not "feared"?
    • My Dad died In 2008. I made the trip back then to the Baltimore Area and saw my old room. Mackey's poster was the only poster I'd ever had. Still was hanging, more than 40 years after buying it.  Great Man!  Most kids today never heard of him. Made the absolute weirdest 75 yard TD in SB V.....   In those days an offensive player couldn't catch it after another offensive player had touched it, unless the defense touched it in between.  The game was held up forever as the refs tried to see if a Cowboy's fingernail grazed the ball...
    • Does Brady have enough footballs to keep AB and everyone else happy? If I had to guess... no but we will see.....
