Colts #5 in Power Rankings

Recommended Posts

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001042972/article/nfl-preseason-power-rankings-patriots-rams-saints-lead-way

 

Apparently Dan Hanzus has taken over the Power Rankings for NFL.com.  I guess that's what Elliot Harrison gets for putting us at #32 last year!  haha

 

The four conference championship teams from last year are still the top four according to Dan.

 

1. Pats

2. Rams

3. Saints

4. Chiefs

5. Colts

You can probably drop the Colts 15 spots on this list if Andrew Luck's latest mysterious injury eats into his regular season. For now, we'll work under the assumption that the superstar quarterback will be ready for Week 1. Luck was seen warming up before Indy's preseason matchup against theBrowns, which seems like a good sign. The Colts may not be Super Bowl contenders with Jacoby Brissett, but they aren't lost, either. He was great in limited action against Cleveland. In Jake Brisket, the Colts have themselves an ideal hold-the-fort guy.

 

Jake Brisket...  :lol:

Listeners of the podcast will be familiar with the "Jake Brisset" sound drop, best described as imagine saying that name if he was a film noir PI. 

 

Surprised Hanzus got the gig to be honest.

32 wasnt a crazy ranking, they started 1-5.  not meant to be a season long projection either just a snap shot at the moment.  it didnt account for how good the rookie class was going to be though

He said that was based on not knowing if Luck would be really back.  Still, we all knew that even with JB we’d be competitive.

But we did start 1-5, so an early season ranking of 32 wasn't that bad.   Especially with the Luck uncertainty.

I thought the 32 ranking was absolutely crazy. I said that before the season started. Reason why is Luck was coming back. I was on record picking us 9-7 before the season and making the 6th spot in the AFC. I had us ranked 12th last season going in. This season 5 is right IMO.

To me Elliott Harrison seemed like a Colt hater, that is JMO by the way he has talked about the organization for years. He also seemed to be in love with the Pats. This new guy doing the rankings gets it, he isn't biased.

The new guy doing the rankings may even have outdone me haha. I say that because I am not sure the Chargers shouldn't be 5th and we should be 6th. 5th is still pretty right on IMO.

As of now assuming Luck is ready for week 1 and will play every game, my rankings would be:

 

1. Pats

2. Saints

3. Chiefs

4. Rams

5. Colts

6. Chargers

7. Eagles

8. Bears

9. Browns

10. Seahawks

-I will put us at #5, the Chargers are just as good and they play us at their place on opening day. So they should be favored against us. If the game was here then I think we should be favored.

 Harrison is a patriots fan and even more so of Tom Brady

Oh goodness. I think I remember one article Hanzus wrote last year or 2 years ago gushing about Tom Brady. Not saying he doesn't deserve praise, but it was so sappy it made me gag

    • I don't think the waiver provision has changed, which is still a big issue. I think that makes it very unlikely that Eason goes to the PS this year; it makes little sense to spend a 4th on a guy and then expose him to waivers, unless you don't think he's working out. If Eason looks at least decent in camp, I doubt they waive him.    If I had to project right now, it would be Kelly that gets waived, with the intention of signing him back to the PS. (Followed by more unreasonable but totally predictable outcry from the three Chad Kelly stans on this board.)   Part of this goes back to the hard-coded resistance some have to carrying more than two QBs on the active roster. That's great if you have an entrenched starter who never misses games, in his prime. But over half the league typically carries 3 QBs. If you have a shaky starter, an injury-questionable starter, an old starter, or any questions at QB2, it's logical to have 3 QBs on the active roster.   In the Colts case, we have an old starter, on a new team, and our backup shouldn't be considered a potential franchise level starter. So having a developmental guy on the active roster is not only defensible, it's preferable.    Btw, I hate that first year players have to go through waivers to be put on the PS. If that rule were changed, I think some of these young players that bounce around for three years and then wind up out of the league might have a better chance at sticking somewhere.
    • I’m still a Fountain fan.  He had some bad luck with his injury, but he had a dominant camp last year...
    • Great video !!  I'm excited for this season.
    • No....  when Reich said Jacoby was ahead of Eason you said...   “who knows if that’s true or not?”      As if Reich had some reason to lie about it.   You’ve been talking in circles ever since. 
    • I never said he was lying. I said Reich is a optimist so don’t expect anything but positive stuff from him. The colts actions speak volumes of what they think of Jacobys upside.
