NFL Power Rankings

Recommended Posts

NFL Network is running through their new power rankings tonight (Tuesday).

They have dropped the Colts from no.5 to no.19 after the retirement of Andrew.

They also have a pet name for Brissett....Jake Brisket.

They also had a laugh about the Colts QB signings...saying the Colts were trying to buy their way to quarterback credibility.

He wrote tranquility not credibility. And he's certainly right

They has us at 32 last year

This is a good point to remember. I think we have a competitive enough team to realistically be in the middle of the pack minimum.

Seems pretty fair.  Hard to get too upset about it....."its why they plat the games".

You are correct...it was "tranquility".  I just watched the rerun.

I heard it wrong the first time...noise in the room...apologies.

For what it's worth....

 

ESPN's power rankings have dropped the Colts from 5th to 23rd.    Which, if it held in terms of the draft,  would mean we'd be picking 10th overall.

 

I'm confident when I say I don't think there's a good chance of that happening.

Just checked....     there's an even NEWER power index update.

 

Colts all the way up from 23,  to 21.    With a projected win total of......   7.

 

They say we have a 15 percent chance of winning the AFC South.

 

We have a projected draft slot of....   11.

 

Not a very pretty picture.      Hopefully we proved the predictions wrong as we did in 2012,  and as we did in 2018.     I like when history repeats itself in this way!

USA Today has the Colts at 22.    Seems like all outlets are on the same page.  

It all rests on Brissetts shoulders.   The team is solid.

Points on Preseason Ranking

1) They dont matter

2) They dont matter

3) They dont matter

I see a 9-7 year on the top side

6-10 on the bottom side

Thank goodness! I hate it when everyone is on the bandwagon.

 

This is a young, hungry, and talented team. Throwing a little fuel onto the fire is just another positive.

    • Here's how I look at it. It's very rare for a team to win a SB with an average QB. Typically their QBRs are pretty high. I saw a graphic or tweet IIRC that only one team in the modern era has won the SB with a QBR under 50. And that was Manning in Denver. Talk about the perfect game manager (with declining skills) on a team with an elite defense. Their O was still decent/average (ranked 16th). Their D was #1.    JB's QBR now is like 47, and that's with one of the best OLs in the league. Our D (pts per game allowed) is like 16th. Even if our D gets back up to like 10, that's still not a SB winning combination. I also ask what is more likely, finding a QB that will be top 10ish (60 or higher QBR), or creating a #1 D to offset a sub 50 QBR. IMO, finding a 60ish QBR guy is probably the easier road.   I really love JB as a person. Awesome guy, hard worker, etc.. I'd love for him to improve and become that guy. I just see several very "fundamental" limitations to his game, that I'm not sure will improve all that much over the course of a season (or even two). My biggest fear is that we get stuck in a fog of mediocrity, trying to make things work for a few years. Purely my opinion, but if I don't see significant improvement by the last quarter of the season, I'm probably moving on. 
    • Did Campbell have injury issues at OSU?   Is it too early to say bye to Lewis lol
    • To the OP, to answer your question it is because he plays for Alabama. Most loved Fromm before last week  , he lost with a stacked team vs an unrated SC team. Fromm also ranks very low when throwing completions in the air down field 10 yards or more. Tua is no Andrew Luck, lets not fool ourselves.
    • This is right on point. If for some reason they can’t play we are going to have to go with a very vanilla and basic scheme. Won’t be able to confuse Watson either. Losing our two starting corners in this game would be bigger then not having our safeties against KC.  Especially with the Texans offense. They spread the ball around a lot. Having Desir out means Wilson plays on the outside which limits packages and looks. If Moore can’t go we have another rookie in Taylor in the slot. So Eberflus would keep it simple.
