Mahomes is going to be a vegetarian today and get his full of eating GRASS today :) I hope

I hope he feels the walls closing in on him today and panic sets in.

We may see the Maniac in the backfield a couple of times today!

Gosh he is just so awesome. I’m glad he’s with us. haha

Eventhough I have said we are playing with house money (which we are) and this season is great no matter what happens today, I feel like I am going to puke because I want us to win so badly. This game is 50/50. I do not want the season to end.

I’m nervous as well. I just want the team to hold their own and not get blown out by Mahommes. He’s looking really confident today.

I want the ball first....

I want to limit their possesions…….

I want to get to the lead

 

If we win the toss, take the ball

Yeah, I want the lead.  Completely agree with you.  Take the crowd out of the game with a long drive and score, then a 3 and out - or a drive that doesn't lead to any points for them.  Set the tone early.

Field looks like it's in good condition now, but I expect it to deteriorate by halftime.  If we can take the lead into halftime our running game could really be the difference.

...if conditions really break down.  I'm guessing they will.

Mahomes isn’t used to a playoff game let alone a playoff game in this kind of weather, I don’t think it bodes well for him IMO. I think the colts win this by two scores 

Home teams with starting QBs making their playoff debut were 0-3 last week.

Houston, Baltimore and the Bears

No Hooker is massive and really disappointing as it would have been awesome to see Mahones vs Hooker. 

 

I suspect we will give up many big plays downfield without Hooker and that may just be the difference in this game.

 

Odum has a lot of pressure on him.

They were talking about Vinatieri hitting he FG's in pre-game warm-ups.  Made me think about deja vu, Vinny hitting another game winner like he did in the snow against the Raiders to add to his storied history. 

 

Enjoy it Colt nation, remember at pre-season, we weren't supposed to be here and now some experts predict we will beat the #1 seed, what a transformation over the past 5 months.  Go Colts!

    • So 2 of their starting WRs are out, and one of the number 2s is questionable.  They are basically down to one healthy starter (Hoagan), a questionable depth guy, and one healthy depth guy. Josh Malone has been signed to the active roster.   Starting RT is out, starting C is questionable.    Gotta feel sorry for Darnold. Not really. Hope we crush him lol.    
    • I agree with the WR statement, not necessarily a high first round pick  Then again, Pittman isn't really a take-the-top-off the defense type of WR like TY is, and Ballard spent a very high second on him.    Reich's offense is supposed to be about disbursing the ball around with plays schemed to assist non-stud pass catchers, more so than the offense we used to have.  But any NFL offense needs playmakers who can do something with the ball once they get it.     Having mid level talented skilled position players is sort of what we've had, and the lack of individual playmaking puts too much pressure on the QB and play caller executing the correct play.  Coaches benefit from having a player who can make two moves and go 60 yards by themselves, and they tend to not be found in mid to late rounds.   Also agreed about CB.  The zone scheme doesn't need a shut down corner like VD.  The scheme does need a 3 tech on the dline, and a better pass rush, so its nice to see the investment of pick 13 into a position that matters with the Buckner acquisition.   Personally, I think the pass rush can be done by committee.  Even great players get gassed.  But there should be one DE along with Buckner that the defense has to account for when he's in the game.  I think that player requires a first round investment.   I've always been less enthused about the need for a stud TE.  I think the plamaking pass catchers should be the WRs and versatile RBs, but to get the kind of TEs the NFL seems to want, I think its going to take a pretty high pick.   And then there is AC's retirement looming.  Always need a 1st rounder for a LT if you want him to start as a rookie, unless dumb luck lets one drop out of tree.
    • I really don't give 2 sheets about Ebron, but it's still all speculation. We don't know what the argument was.   But as I've said before, going from a guy who was our primary red zone target, to only getting 3 targets inside the 10 in 11 games in 2019 is pretty WTH, especially given our problems on O. And aside from his 3 drops in the Oakland game, he was pretty good (0 drops in the Pitt game and 3 games leading up to it) afterwards.    IMO, the writing was on the wall in terms of him not being extended. I don't blame him for going and getting his body taken care of if he knows he's not coming back. It's business.   At Pitt so far, he's got 4 catches for 61 yards, and 3 of those are for 1st downs. He's also had 2 drops.    
    • We need to worry about ourselves in this game. Players need to be smart and focused. No turnovers, no foolish mistakes. If we do that then we’ll be fine. But if we start turning over the ball in our own territory, then it’ll be a long afternoon.    We better be mentally prepared...
