I'm not sure how I feel about this tweet, Jim. I'm confident too but... 

 

I mean...all he's saying is that, the worse the weather conditions are the better it is for the Colts.  Which is true.

hmm, pretty judgy in here

Ya think? 

Jim's just excited for his team. He should be, they been playing very good. He does have a point with our running game and the Chiefs poor run defense. Why someone would have an issue with Jim is beyond me. :dunno:

He’s just saying the Colts will be ready tomorrow regardless of the weather, how many here have said the samething this week?

 

Well..not really.  He's saying that they feel poor weather is better for the Colts than it is for the Chiefs.

The tweet puts unnecessary pressure on the team to win and it's a brutally tough game already. I get being excited, but this game is far from a given. I was confident in the Texans game, I'm about 55/45 Chiefs here. We have to play perfect.

Cheerleader haha 

 

The thought of him wearing a cheerleader outfit and holding those pompoms while throwing one leg up in the air made me throw up in my mouth, lol.

I don't think Jim tweet effects the team at all. 

They are playing with house money now and having fun.

The tweet puts zero pressure on the Colts to win.  The only thing it might do is cause some amount of embarrassment for Irsay if the conditions are poor and the Colts lose, and even that is questionable.

I see nothing wrong with the tweet. I don't even see how this could be seen as something that could fire up the Chiefs. It's not like he said we were going to go out there and stomp them into the mud. I would love to work for a man like Jim Irsay. I think all he was saying was that he believes in his team.

With us being an indoor team, it's counterintuitive, but yes, it should favor us.  This isn't the 2004 Colts.  In fact, you could argue we're playing the 2018 version of the 2004 Colts.

 

Frank played in Buffalo.  He knows what to do.

No people are taking it to mean that.  He doesn’t say one word about the Chiefs, he just says the Colts will fired up and happy with the weather if it’s sloppy.  It just means he feels his team is ready for the conditions, again how many here have said the exact samething this week?  The being fired and up and ready for the wether has nothing to do with the Chiefs.  They could also be ready for it and tomorrow could be a great game.

You really think a tweet and will create more pressure than knowing if they lose their season is over and if they win they are one game away from going to the Super Bowl?

I think it's a form of trash talking that will fire up the Chiefs some. I trash-talk myself, but if I lose, I'm the only one that looks bad. If we lose, then not only does Irsay look bad, but it paints the team in a poor light because Irsay was talking trash for them and they didn't back it up. Not in favor of it really. Irsay is starting to get cocky, and that's when you lose.

Ya... I'm sure players will be dropping passes and missing blocks because they just can't stop thinking about this tweet...

It means they, kc, will have to run more and we can stop that better than we can their pass. Plus we have a great run game  matchup, which is perfect for cold, snowy, windy weather.

I disagree.  He specifically says the team will be "happier" with poorer conditions. Why would the team actually be "happier" about poor conditions unless they feel that poor weather conditions give them an edge in the game?  And when you compare the Chiefs offense vs the Colts it's very clear that poor weather conditions favor the Colts.  The Chiefs are a pass-happy offense driven on big plays in the passing game.  The Colts are one of the most balanced teams in the playfoffs and they've shown a far superior ability to run the ball compared to KC.  That means that poor weather conditions favors the Colts.

    • Wow, I don't think anyone can match Mahomes skill set at QB at this stage.  To beat the Ravens, who's favored to go to the Super Bowl was taken to school by Mahomes.  The rate he's going, the Chiefs will beat out Brady's 6 Super Bowl rings before he retires. This guy is a generational talent, great future ahead of him...
    • We only ran more than passed the last two games, and overall, we've still thrown it slightly more than running.  We've not played any good Os thus far, and when we do, we'll need to throw more.   And Rivers is nothing like Grossman.    So no, not the 2006 Bears. I'm not really sure what we are yet. I don't think Reich knows either based on the extreme swings in game plans from W1 to W3.
    • Look at the Ravens with the flying V  
    • No.  Rivers isn't a game manager like Grossman, he's much better than that. Our OL is better than Chicago's 2006 OL was, but we don't really know we're a 'run first' team right now.  We threw 46 times in week 1, and were certainly a pass first team in at least 1/3 of our games so far.   Yes, we do have an old WR (TY) and some young WRs (though our top 2 are hurt in Pittman and Campbell).     Yes, we do have a solid front 7 (Okereke is the only one who has worried me much so far, and I think we'll get even better should Turay come back).  Hopefully our DBs can keep taking the ball away, but we had 0 picks in game 1... so I'm skeptical about saying we're going to be consistent in doing that (especially considering Cousins had a very bad game and the Jets stink).     We're missing the best returner in NFL history (Hester), though I think Dulin/Rodgers/Hines have potential to be good - I highly doubt any of them are going to be close to Hester.     In short, it's way too early in the season to compare us to any other team from the past... our D was awful in week 1, it's looked good since but against the Jets (arguably worst team in NFL) and the Vikes who definitely had an off day.  Frankly, I think we have potential to be significantly better than the 2006 Bears (regardless of if we make the SB or not), but this is a totally different NFL than it was 14 years ago.
    • Yup, like I said, wish we used the speed like they did. Just not that. The way they attack the edges is awesome. It really opens up the middle.
