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.

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

    • Is it just my imagination or are we actually running more to the right this year? Nelson is absolutely deadly when he pulls, but Glow and Smith both appear to be holding their blocks better this year on straight runs even without Nelson trapping.
    • I haven't seen this twist on here yet:   QB (Lamar Jackson - duel threat to eliminate need for top RB) LT (protect the QB) C (strength and line calls up the middle) WR (keeps defenses honest) DE (pass rush and set the edge) MLB (defensive QB) DT (run stuffer)   Basically, strong up the middle on offense and defense.
    • if we beat houston i will start believing this team can make a run as construed    they are our main rival right now.  not NE or the rest of the division imo.  they are getting very good play from watson, he is on fire lately  
    • QB, Well rounded DE, LT, stud possession WR, Lockdown CB, DT (preferably Aaron Donald), LB that can play all position and cover sideline to sideline. 
    • Yes, even those not so obvious ones. IE: called 12 men on field vs team A defense/flagged. Later team B has 13 defenders on the field when team A lines up. But instead of stopping the play and throwing the flag, they grant team B a timeout!!  I feel that is incorrect application and a timeout cannot cancel the 12 men on the field flag once the O is set. Yet this has happened at least twice that I know of (including last night?)     P.I. seems to have a much higher bar in replay than the rules that apply on the field.  This isn't right, though I know it is to detract coaches from challenging P.I. penalties. This rule is for the league to (only) intervene in the most dire circumstances (whether booth review or coach challenge).     Agreed refs need to get better. How?     Those aren't going away until mistakes are eliminated, unfortunately. No way they open up replay to everything like Belichick wants.
