Sleep well buddy. When you name call and say we will lose by 3 TD's I can't resist to respond. "Wienie" is a new one but thanks. I think I may cook out some Bratwursts on the grill now and have another beer and celebrate the biggest win we have had in a while lmao . Have a great day tomorrow, I can't wait for your response. I love when we win games like this, it just shuts the haters/doubters up. 

I am 100% glad that I was wrong on the score

 

I did notice that you didnt PM looking to put your money where your mouth is

 

I would have gladly paid the bet

 

if I have offended you please accept my apologies, you started the back and forth... not me

No biggy, yeah I didn't bet you on the game but I did pick the Colts to win on here before the game. You really didn't offend me. We are all Colts fans no matter how I or anyone looks at it in reality. Thanks for the response.

try to be intellectually honest about the matchups. 

 

It feels like you're being intellectually elusive because you don't wanna go back on a point you made, but I'll play along with your example where JB is hobbled, TY and Ebron out, Doyle with the drops, Houston, Sheard and Autry out on D: 

 

Well since the OLine and RBs are still fine, and assuming Doyle isn't missing blocks as well as dropping passes, I'd say our running game is still going to dominate the LOS and TOP, keeping Mahomes on the sideline.  Alie-Cox can replace Ebron in a pinch, and I'm sure Chester Rogers can get called for PI as well as TY.  haha

 

Now our pass-rush might not be as effective without Houston, Sheard, and Autry, but remember even Grover Stewart got a sack on Mahomes last night.  And Muhammad isn't a bad pass-rusher either.  I think with how banged up KCs OLine was, our DLine was going to get to Mahomes, no matter who lined up.

 

Now you do the same exercise with KC:  Their two starting safeties are out (so no Mathieu making plays), their best LB is out, two of their best WRs are out and their TE is dropping balls (oh wait, that was the case anyway), AND their franchise QB retired two weeks before the season.  :D

I do not blame him. Tonight's win was huge, have to celebrate a little.

I had a couple cans of joy myself. While I think the win itself was emotionally awesome, I think the circumstances (injury impact) were unique. Regardless of the circumstance though, so freaking nice to get that W in KC.

I agree with a lot of the above. It simply boils down to this for me..... What makes KC great on O is their mobile gunslinger going to their dynamic WRs and uber talented TE. Their best strength on D is their pass rush. In this game, all of those strengths were gone (QB not mobile, WRs injured, TE uncharacteristically horrible, and 3 of 4 DL out + LB out). So pretty much everything that made them good was gone.

 

For us, we're simply solid all around. Our OL is probably our best position group, and was going up against their most depleted unit on D. Our DBs playing man along with our DL going up against their struggling OL, hobbled QB, and second/third string WRs was enough to keep them in check. Their running game isn't anything special, so they were pretty much single threaded, and that thread was crippled. 

 

Regardless of the circumstances, sure was great to beat them on the road. Not sure it tells us much about our team's chances (playoffs and vs top teams), but just getting a W that was supposed to be a loss is huge.

    • The question might be better framed around "confidence".   If I had to rank my 2022 confidence from lowest to....   1. MIKE - performed mediocre in 2020, will be taking a bigger role in 2021 2. LT - nobody under contract in 22, coming back from injury, 30 years old 3. CB1 - nobody under contract in 22, 31 years old, CB2 struggled in 2020 so him taking over CB1 is questionable.  4. WR1 - aged and has history of health issues. Heir apparent candidates are rook X (Xs are not frequently WR1s), and the primary candidate for replacement has been injured every year. 5. FS - rook that struggled mightily in coverage after teams got film 6. DE - Turay is an injury vs flash guy at this point, Dayo is a injured rook projection, and Lewis is stepping into a starting role as a tweener. 7. QB - we're pretty much committed for 2 years, so probably doesn't matter for 22   This all assumes we re-sign WILL, RT, and LG to extensions. LG already has 5th year exercised.   
    • lol. you said it was your last post... feel free to post again and I will not reply, so you can "win". I was only hoping you'd address the question/point that you're still avoiding.   Point is, you have not addressed the question specifically about the last 5 years. I guess the Bengals have bucked their history lol. It's not a theory, it's just data. Like I said, I like Irsay, but we simply haven't spent the last 5 years. And like I previously said, GMs don't complain about their budgets publicly. And there's just not a great way to explain 2 straight years of not spending 40+M. You don't have to spend it all, you don't have to sign long term deals.... But that's a lot of money to not spend.
    • No I am not I am looking at a history of a guy who has owned this team for a longer period of four or five years you only want to look at because it supports yours theory but even then it only works if you ignore what the GM has said about not spending money and that he’s about to spend very big money to do what he said he was going to do all along.  Again if you think Jim Irsay is a cheap owner you don’t know what a cheap owner is but think what you want.     any I am sure you will want the last word as you always do have a nice night.
    • And that's fine. We can revisit this at the end of the year. All I'm doing is giving my thoughts on the matter before it becomes evident.
