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

    • Every breakdown I read or listen to lately all show our players don’t seem to know where they are supposed to be and are not executing well.  I hope it’s just because We are a young team.
    • Pocket Passing QBs are defined as QBs who sit in the pocket under pressure and make throws from the pocket. Most of the league these days is based upon QBs getting outside of the pocket to make plays, which means they are not primarily pocket passers. I’m not saying Love will be unable to get outside of the pocket, but I don’t see it much on tape as he has great protection and doesn’t need to. Personally, I don’t care for either of them, and would rather wait for the better class in 2021 while building more this year, but of the two, it would at least be more interesting to go for something the Colts haven’t really ever had. Spice it up a bit, ya know
    • ...a big fat check the man is freaking awesome! Give this dude an extension already    come on we need some humor around here not much else to look forward to the rest of the season for the Colts that is.   Time to laugh with me 
    • Huh? The top 15 QB's statistically are all primarily pocket passing QB's. Mahomes, Watson, Wilson, Rodgers, Prescott, Wentz, while being mobile in the pocket, are not running QB's. Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson are really the only 2 QB's used in actual running situations continuously.    Sorry, but there are no Lamar Jackson's in this draft and Hurts isn't the answer either. A) I don't want to see an offense rebuilt into something that isn't sustainable. Eventually LJ will have to sit his * in the pocket. B) Every time I see Hurts' name pop up I wonder if people have actually watched him. There is a reason he couldn't cut it at Bama, and got beat out by an actual passing QB. I don't think there are going to be many teams who are going to rebuild their offense for a guy who can't read a defense, nor progress beyond his first/second read before he's wanting to just take off running. Hurts wouldn't even be on my board just due to him not being a good passing QB.
