How I predict the AFC playoffs will go

Same with the Texans though.  

At the time, the Colts needed that win against the Jags to stay in the playoff hunt.   Turns out it wasn't the case.  

I'm just saying that I think teams play up to their potential when it is do or die.   Or they at least do not play in a lethargic manner.  

 

Again, we'll have to see. I just don't see this game as a cake walk for the texans like a lot of others are.

I agree with you on this point.  To be honest, the Texans have a lot to play for, and the Jags don't.  The funny thing is, even if the Texans win, I'm not sure homefield is to their advantage when they play the Colts, if Luck and TY are heatlthy!

They also gave up 22 points to sam darnold. Honestly I think their defense is overrated.

How many points did the celebrated Colts defense give up to Sam Darnold? 

 

And if you watched the last game you would’ve seen how many in-game injuries to the defense (and that particularly nasty one on offense) the Texans suffered. I’m not saying the Jacksonville game will be a gimme either but come on...Blake Bortles is starting. :pokerface:

The colts are not celebrated as a top defense like the texans are and your secondary was a problem way before any injuries happened. As for Bortles, I already said this will be a defensive game. I just think the Jags defense is better especially with all the injuries you guys have to your wrs and rbs. Also Watson has been getting killed by your line.

But surely you realize how hypocritical you sound considering we beat the Jets and the Colts gave up way more points to them, right? 

And no. The secondary has not been a problem. Kareem Jackson has had a career year, Reid has balled out as a rookie and Tyrann Mathieu is Tyrann Mathieu.

and yet you guys are almost dead last in passing defense. Again Im saying this will be a defensive game. All im saying is the Jags defense is better.

Meh. Considering the hell the secondary has been through at times this season I’m not surprised. We beat them pretty handily the first time we played. Yes things have changed but I would trust Watson vs their D more than I would Bortles against ours.

Even though you're down to basically Hopkins on offense?

Coutee and Miller will be back this week. DeAndre Carter is playing. Watson can elevate guys on offense and last week was another good example of that. Our defense just couldn’t hold up on their end.

Hasn't Coutee missed like 10 games this year?

They lost at home vs us when the division was on the line

Colts are a better team than the Jaguars

I think Watson trumps the defense comparison.   He's really been quite good.   26 TD's to 9 INT's.   68% completion.  104 rating.  500 yards rushing.

Thats not the point and the texans are plagued with injuries on offense while the jags defense is basically healthy

It’s football. Guys get hurt. But if he does come back his speed and route running will be a factor as it has in the past.

Im not saying watson has been bad. Im just saying the lack of weapons and a leaky oline will cause him and the offense to struggle

I’m more concerned about the Colts winning their game. I’d love to see the Texans lose. But I’ll believe it when I see it

That’s my only concern as well. I only care about four team.

I would very much like to see your scenario play out.   Unfortunately I don't think Houston will lose.   It's a home game for the division title.   They will be playing much more motivated ball than the Jags.   They are an all around better team too.   That said, Go Jags!!

 

But never discount that Jacksonville defense

    • While some of those folks own up to it later, it is amazing how quiet some of them get.
    • A 5th round pick and a ham sandwich.  With extra mayo.
    • I don't think he ever said that.  I think he made some general threat to the woman that made reference to the kid, and then people quickly ran with that to interpret it as him saying that he would do to her what he did to the kid, thereby indirectly implying he broke the kids arm.  At least it seemed like there could be enough smoke generated from this tape to justify kicking him out of the league to send the all-important proper social message.  I think now the feeling is that the interpretation of what he was talking about is flawed.   It sounds like this has come down to where he simply threatened her during an argument.  Not enough smoke to suspend him, IMO.
    • I don't want to use resources on another linebacker, so in order for me to pull the trigger, it would have to be a huge steal. I'd do a 2nd rounder
    • You're acting as if we don't know anything about Deon Cain. The higher ceiling is based on the fact that he's a second round talent that dropped due to personality concerns, and the fact that he was doing so well in camp. Obviously I'm not saying they don't like Fountain, but before the preseason the Colts were calling him "the steal of the draft". Turns out we did have the steal of the draft, but that's besides the point    The ACL tear isn't being underestimated, the thing is that there's a difference when you tear your ACL in August vs October or November. Also, what has Fountain done to prove more than Cain? He was on the practice squad, and he had that one divisional game drop. Other than that I don't see why you think Fountain is more proven or whatever. And it is simply absurd to have him over Pascal and Chester. The problem is that we know what they are: not very good. When deciding who to keep on the roster, the question is not "have these guys contributed before?" The question is "will these guys contribute?" And the answer is, from what I've seen and heard, Deon Cain is talented and is at least worth keeping more than Pascal and Chester.
