Stephen A Smith said the same thing. He said NE, KC, Texans, and the colts are the contenders in the AFC.


He has such a good track record as an analyst too..

I love this board.

Yes, I've internally named it to myself the "Trash and Treasure" syndrome. I'm used to and ready for that ebb and flow, TBH.

We didn’t end up as the number one. If you take the first six games out the colts allowed the fewest points in the league when we went on that winning streak. We shut out the cowboys and only allowed 7 points to the Texans and if you remember that shouldn’t of even been a TD. Can’t remember if that was the playoff game or the last regular season game.

That still doesn't have anything to do with the Colts defensive improvement was in large part because they played a lot of mediocre to bad QBs.  Bortles twice, Mariotta twice, Watson, Prescott and Tannehill.

 

Those guys make a lot of defenses look good.

If your defense is bad even teams that aren’t great offensively are still going to expose the  bad defense. You can’t ignore the cowboys games or the Texans games.

    • Who cares, Nelson is a beast and I bet he got up angry and nailed someone
    • Not sure what this has to do with anything.  But I also want to point out, that I was one that wanted Simmons and said so in multiple threads (I think I even had the Colts picking him in the 2nd round on the draft contest).  So you're "everybody" and "Everyone" comments do not apply.
    • GMs typically know how things will play out, IMO, as far as who is likely to move up for a QB etc. That is another reason Ballard did not want to move down from the Rock-Ya-Sin pick because he wanted him. I feel that there are 7 teams that will draft QBs.    Outside the obvious Bengals and Dolphins, I have 5 other teams I believe will draft a QB - Panthers, Bucs, Raiders, Chargers and Colts.    See my post here:        I do think we will win 7 games at least and my prediction is still 8-8 for us. In all likelihood, the only team drafting later than us that I see are the Raiders. If we are confident they will not draft a QB after what they invested in Carr, our odds are good if we drop down about 8-10 picks in the draft that the QB we want is still there when it is the Texans' 1st rounder turn. I expect Ballard and his scouts to have a good pulse on that. Maybe we get the Dolphins' Steelers first rounder pick instead of the Texans' first rounder pick then if we want to be sure.
    • Be prepared to be depressed, I already I am and expect JB to be the QB again at least for next year. Here is something to cheer you up:   Since in Indianapolis (1984, 84-2019 36 seasons) 12 Divisional Round appearances - 1987, 1995, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2018   5 AFC Title Game appearances - 1995, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2014   2 SB appearances - 2006, 2009   1 SB Championship - 2006 (that is what makes us an elite franchise factoring in all the other great wins).   -Hey man when you get down or depressed, just go to youtube and watch all the great wins we have had over the last 33 years . It started with Dickerson in 1987, then we had the likes of Harbaugh, Peyton, and Luck. We have been lucky to witness a bunch of great times. We never cheated either like the Pats have to get our success.
    • No, it didn't happen often and you can see that Kelly's right foot gets behind Q's left foot so he could not step back.   Still took him 3 seconds to get around Q.
