I will eat crow on the defense...they finally stepped it up big time. Very happy to see it. Only one game...so hopefully they can keep it up.

 

But why do we need a thread like this? Was there a thread after the OAK game? 

 

Besides, I doubt anyone was predicting the Colts would win a game like that (at least not based on anything that has happened so far this season). That's the beauty of football...any given Sunday.

This win is unreal but that is Colts football. That stop by Houston on 4th down was just priceless. Our O.Line is the best. TY is a top 5 WR in the league, Jacoby is just poised and just proved to me he can lead this team. Mack is a workhorse. Vinny was perfect and sealed the game too. 

 

Darius will be back after the BYE as well.

Yes there was such a thread after the Oakland game. And after all the whining and negativity the last week, this thread is more than warranted

People make threads like this to make themselves feel like they are better fan.   Let people enjoy it. It’s okay to be a pessimistic fan and optimistic fan. Aslong as we support the team and root for them.

Think about this, we did this with missing at least 3 starters on Defense. Moore got banged up early too.

And they should come back home with all the confidence in the world. 

Not to wish loss on anyone, I hope our division opponents all lose next week and we take a firm division lead after a W against the Texans in two weeks.

The only sad thing is Turay is done for the season. Looked like the same injury fountain had. Game was almost offer.

Have they released the injury yet? I’m thinking he snapped his ankle or fibula

I don't think I posted on any prediction threads, and I thought we could make it ugly, but I did not at all expect a win. I'm so pleasantly surprised, especially by the defense and Eberflus (he's still my boy).

As for our offense, or at least the running game, they flat out imposed their will. That OL and Mack are slayers. And Wilkins is a legitimate backup who I hope continues to get carries.

Really sad for Turay though. I just hope that it's something that he can rehab/recover from next year. He was a huge part of our pass rush on the edge and guys will have to step up. I'm not a huge fan of Banogu but he has a chance to shine now.

I am here to eat crow.  Lol. That was one of the best defensive performances I have ever seen from this team.

Just the way we like it eh Chloe?  When I saw Mahomes limp off the field not once but twice I was dancing like a madman all over my living room

 

Colts fans get used to this, this is what New Colts Football looks like!

No its not okay to be a pessimistic fan, if being a pessimist means you % on the team incessantly. 

 

Saying they are gonna get blown out is not rooting for them.

 

Do you have a hater in your life? Do you feel like they are rooting for you?

Coming off the loss against the Raiders and the 2nd half against the Falcons, there were plenty reasons to doubt this team

I suck.....i have been really negative all week after the Raiders game.  I'm 1st up to apologize.  One of the greatest wins in Colts history when u consider what they were up against 

I noticed the amount of negative posts to the point that i mentally put your name with some of the other negative posters.

You are back in the circle of trust.

That’s your opinion. Not everyone has to be the sunshine and lollipops fan

 

Which fan do you think the team appreciates more?

 

The pessimistic one that is ready to fire and replace everyone after one bad game,

 

OR the optimistic fan that supports the team during the good times AND the bad?

I did not have any faith in winning this game but WHO could've guessed our defense would do THAT to the MVP.

Whatever Wilson, Odum, and Willis had for dinner they need to eat that again. Okereke was robbed of a INT.

    • 1 year deals, or short terms deals, are always part of the equation. And mixing in good but aged vets with young and upcoming talent is a good thing. That's just normal and good roster management. There's always a mix on a good team. I'd have zero issue with spending 8ish/year for two years on a healthy Ertz. That said, I'm higher than most on our current TEs. Doyle is extremely solid, Mo needs more snaps, and especially RZ and sail route type snaps. Burton did well, but he's more slot WR than TE to me.    8M for 2 years is not a huge or long term investment. With Ertz being injured now, and only one year left on his deal, Eagles can't ask for much.    Honest question, aside the QB elephant in the room, what are your top 5 position needs?
    • Rushing 4 gives teams a better chance of not getting beat over the top. We all saw that 1 on 1 with Hill/Kelce/Hardman and nobody covering over top is a mismatch. 
    • Ertz is maybe one but for all the big ticket guys upcoming, is an aging TE really what we need to invest in? 8+ million at age 30 and it’s for 1 more year and FA in 2022. I don’t know about you but I’m kinda tired of working on the 1 year deal guys. I’d like to keep building up MAC and either Doyle or his clone Hentges maybe. Idk what the plan is for Burton but I’m not spending 3-4 mil on him either. Can’t stay on the field his whole career so far.    imho, until we can solidify the longer term QB spot, whether that’s Eason or a new draft pick, I really feel we need to focus on the defense and stay level on offense but not spend big $$ on guys that we don’t have a QB after next season probably, assuming we sign PR for 2021 and keep developing Eason. Keep building that strong defense to keep game scores down and beef up the oline to help protect whoever is back there and push the running game until a QB emerges and then you can start to add offensive pieces to start scoring because those new toys will come at the expense of guys on Def imho. 
    • On the first bolded, I'm not sure the luster was ever there. While he's not as bad as he was in SD/LA, he hasn't brought the creativity from Philly (Pederson called plays there to be fair) either. I'm just not sure who Reich really is to be honest. Some would say he did better last weekend, but honestly he didn't really have choice but to open things up after getting down 21. I'd just like to see more creativity, while at the same time, less "cute" but still bland game plans.    On the second bolded, I'm a lot more confident in our ability to get on a roll in the playoffs with Rivers. Sure there's risks, but at least we'd have a chance. Our Ds not good enough to support a O with limited capability.
