I would have predicted ints to be a little higher, but otherwise my predictions would have been eerily similar. I don't know how to feel about this. The word 'uneasy' leaps to mind

I feel that anywhere between 6 & 10 wins are realistic. Stats wise, I say 25 tds 14 ints.

5-11.  Brissett benched for Kelly week 10 after a 2-8 start.  Kelly finishes year 3-3 pushing the Colts out of a spot to draft a top flight QB.  Mediocrity persists for Colts.  Ballard fired after 2020-2021 season.  Peyton is brought in with partial team ownership.  Trevor Lawrence drafted.  New era begins.

people here are gonna be surprised brissett is our future and is gonna be a top ten QB  i have been calling for brissett to take over since 2017  .  luck checked out at kc mentally .

 

brissett was thrown into to the fire in 2017 , with no training camp got here right before the season started. brissett  had to learn the play book so fast  .    with a bottom five o line  , defense and run game, and average coaching .   brissett played very well people forget we lost 7 games by one score with a better team and a full training camp we could of gone 11-5 easily that year .

 

with a top 3 o line top ten defense last year that has improved , and a solid run game now with mack and much better wrs , and coaching .  brissett has also gotten older and wiser he has a huge arm and can thread the needle into tight widows .

 

we are going to the playoffs and without luck choking we will win the superbowl , like brady did when bledsoe got hurt .

I like your positive approach

 

But......

 

8-8 seems right with this schedule and team

Maybe so. Maybe not. 8 wins or more in this circumstance calls for a new contract for JB in my opinion... But I trust Ballard to make the right decisions going forward. He's going to earn his money, for sure.

Colts will be just fine.  QB is one position of many.  Wehave two good QBs. Record will be the same as it would have been with Luck.

Wonder what the rest of the regiment thinks of the Capt relinquishing his sword.  Sad, very sad.

I'm so shocked and bummed that i just gotta laugh.

What else are you gonna do?  I'd like to break something but I know where that ends up.  Life goes on without football.

A bit optimistic are we?

 

I'd say without Luck they are not a 7-9/8-8 team at best. The schedule and division is tough this year.

I like Briskett more than many on this board, but I would like to see what Kelly can do with the 1st team OL

 

Kelly has a good arm, good touch off his fastball when needed, accurate, and mobile

 

Kelly appears to have all the tools to be a decent starter in this league

 

 

But.......  

 

He has had multiple situations where he chose poorly, which may reflect on intelligence

(Or it may be maturity)

 

Can you fix stupid? (I hope its just maturity)

 

 

At the end of the day...... I am HUGELY disappointed that Luck retired,

but I can understand.......  a long healthy, painfree life is good goal

 

I played many sports (I wasnt great) it went from Football, wrestling, and martial arts

at 57,  my arthritis is extremely painful.

 

I have had multiple procedures done on my knees, shoulders, and ankles

(I have bone chips floating around in a few joints) my hip STILL hurts from a tournament from 27 years ago,  (I lost :( )

 

I get up every day and decide what combination of pain management that I am going to take

 

I loved sports, but am somewhat glad my son didnt choose to play football.

 

I wish Luck the best. He left it all on the field 

 

 

You HAVE to build an OL to win in this game.........   How many talented QBs get wasted by poor OLs.......

 

Luck didnt let US down.......  the Colts front office (and owner) let Luck down

 

We are now paying the price

I thought that with Luck (excuse the pun) we could have won the AFC this year.

Imagine guys like Ebron and Justin Houston who came to Indy to play with a Colts offense led by Luck.

…...I wish Andrew well but we aren't a playoff team without him....

Gonna be a lot of bad seasons coming up for many years. Time to start worrying about irsay moving his franchise once people stop coming to Lucas to watch terrible teams.

I said 8-8, 27 and 15. I think we have a solid defense for a change and our O.line is a lot better than in 2017. Having said that losing Luck sucks so no 11-5 now or SB IMO.

    • Dolphins r in a rebuild.  They will b going after one in the draft.  No sense in drafting a 31 year old qb who mayb 34 when the Dolphins start competing. Now him to the Bears makes sense
    • I loved Campbell.  He was probably the most raw coming out of college.  I think they were looking to the future when they picked him.  Injuries have stunted his growth and  contribution to the team.
    • You've got 2 backs, Mack and Hines, that have actual roles, and Wilkins that I'm not actually sure why he exists and I'm not sure he is either.   Mack and Wilkins have skillsets that are too similar.  You need a RB2 that can give you a different look to keep defenses guessing.  A good stable of backs would have Mack or Wilkins trying to run patiently  and a downhill runner to bum rush the gap and catch the defense napping if they get complacent, and would run some 2 back sets to allow the offense to create a shell game and force the D to hedge.   The fact that we don't seem to be capable of using a 2 back set, means that the skillset of our "stable" of backs is fairly limited, or it means that Reich and the OC are both extremely bankrupt for creativity in how to use running backs in an offense.     So I question your first premise right off the bat, and posit that this lack of diversity and/or creativity in the run game is a big reason the running game disappears against disciplined defenses.       Jack Doyle will be pleased to know he's been upgraded to "a few."  Ebron is inconsistent and Allie-Cox is a decent backup.  Doyle himself is solid but not a world-beater.   It's not a bad group, the whole group rounds up to an above average TE unit, but it's only as significant a part of the offense as it is for us this year more or less by default.   Man I really applaud your effort there.  You really put in a good honest try at making our WR situation not look like a complete disaster.   The original plan required everyone to stay healthy and play at about the 75th percentile of their ability.  If you can't see why that's a bit overoptimistic -- to put it mildly -- then I'm afraid there's nothing more I can do to help you.     We got lucky when Pascal came through.  you put these kinds of odds and ends together in the hope that 1 or 2 of them out of the whole group will stick and become solid contributors.  Expecting a stable of spare parts to play like a well oiled machine is an incredible exercise in magical thinking just this side of believing in Narnia.     Agreed.  The offensive line should be a top offensive line and for the most part it is.         The talent is there to not suck.  If not sucking is all you want to accomplish, then sure, the talent is there.  Not sure the talent is there to be a top team in the AFC.  But hey, if you're in on the not-sucking game, then go nuts, enjoy your 7-9 wins every year.  If not, then Ballard needs to do a better job building out the core of this offense -- fewer spare parts, more core components, and if he can't do it we need a better engineer.
    • This. A defensive stud or WR in the first round is going to improve thijs  team more then some QB.
