Nice to have the media thinking of us in that light for a change.  From #32 to top 5 in one year, and we haven't drafted or signed anyone in 2019 yet!

As Ballard said a week or so ago:

 

"The hardest thing in the NFL is going from GOOD to GREAT."

 

I think it may take at least another year before we consider ourselves real challengers.

 

Let's not forget we got whooped by the chiefs......who then got whooped by the pats.....

Not happening, we are in the top 5 favored to win the SB. I love it actually, time to step up.

They are predicting an amazing off season. 
Vegas odds are more reasonable. As of now. 

By odds, Colts are tied for 6th favourite at Footballlocks.

Just for clarification, the Colts are in the Top 5 -- according to Bleacher Report --- and we all know what that's worth. It was nice of them to mention the Colts in that context, however, let's see what the team looks like after the draft and FA before we start hanging another banner.

While nice to get some pub, I still feel that the majority of the media don't know much about specific teams, but instead base most of their opinion on sort of the "general feeling" going on at any one time.  We are the flavor of the month right now.

As much as I may be looking forward to the upcoming season and this years draft/FA, I’m holding back any excitement so I’m not let down if we don’t bring in a bunch of players everyone is clamoring for.

For whatever it may be worth.....

 

ESPN's Way-too-Early 2019 NFL Power Rankings have the Colts......        7th.

 

So,  they're on board our train as well.        :thmup:

I feel safe saying our odds are very likely to shift higher after FA and the draft.
Westgate has us tied for 12th with 4 other teams. We are lacking at many positions and lack that high end veteran core. 
But Optimism is running high for good reason.

Getting a top 2 seed is huge.  There hasn't been a wild card in the title games for years.  Going to be tough.  They could have the same record and a much better team but I'm thinking 11 wins is realistic.

5th might as well be 10th considering the gap between the Colts and the top 4 teams from last season. Time to take the next step.

Wouldn’t that be funny since it is in Miami again. Let’s just make it rain again.

 

i think like someone said above with the tough schedule we could have the same or one more loss but have a better team.

 

W need at Least one home game. A bye would be best but I think we could do it with a home game. We need to win the division then see what happens.

 

What the the colts did in 2006 to get the AFC championship game at home was unheard of. That was very rare.

I definitely expect to win the AFC South. That’s a must. We’ll see on everything else

I expect an AFC Title Game appearance but the Pats aren't going anywhere and KC is really good.

Chiefs didn’t get whooped by the Pats.  They were an offsides penalty away from knocking them off.  Still the Colts have a significant gap to close with respect to both teams.

Patriots will be the favorite once again. Just a matter of having to beat them

KC is no lock to be a top seed. They get NE, Balt, the AFC South and nfc North. A lot of good defenses right there.

 

On paper that's no cakewalk. Teams fall off all the time.

 

2019 is wide open right now thankfully :thmup:..

 

We made a huge jump, let's keep it going. It's all on Ballard right now, need a few more horses across the board.

    • No doubt....   Butler makes plenty of NFL-level catches.   I've seen several of his tapes and they're full of them.   That's why I fell in love with him.   But those are his high-lite tapes.    I'd love someone to put together a montage of his drops.   Let's see the worst of him.     Zierlein made reference of "drop after drop after drop."     But I had no idea it was at 16%.   Yikes!   I know Ballard and Reich aren't afraid of some drops....   but at some point,  one would think they would no longer be acceptable?    
    • Goodness graciouis....   this poster has no idea that he contridicted himself between the first sentence and the last sentence.   First,  the concept of non-elite corners comes from Ballard.   It's just the posters who are repeating it over and over to those who continue to want to spend a first round pick on one.   And then,  you note in your last sentence that good zone corners can be found in later rounds.   Thanks for proving Ballard's point....   even though that was never your intention.    
    • Yeah... I'm on the record that I think drops are overrated by fans but 16%(if true) is truly worrying stat. I honestly haven't seen his hands being a problem on tape. He had some concentration drops, but he does well attacking the football, high pointing it, catching it away from his body. 16% though... wow! I guess I have to rewatch his games. That's like every 6th pass should be a drop.    About Mitchell... I have no idea how to evaluate those things, that's why I'm resigning myself to just watching the tape and leaving the intel to the people with the resources.    edit: just watched his Texas tape again:     He has one drop at 5:55, but just look at how many great NFL-type catches he had before that. I will keep watching other film, but so far I still think the playmaking ability is great and if I had to have 1 drop every game like this one for performances like this, I'm OK with it. And this is not even a particularly excellent game for him. It's run of the mill 99 yard game where his QB was under pressure and running for his life for most of it. 
    • Lol the o ly thing worse than being hated by the media is being loved by the media. 
    • “CoCorners,,People need to stop preaching this deal about how a 4-3 zone defense doesn’t need elite corners like it’s the gospel. I hear the same narratives over and over again. “good zone corners can be found in the middle rounds, our old 4-3  never had elite corners
